My name is Katherine, I'm 26, and I live in North Carolina. My husband and I adopted our first lab (first lab together, he's owned labs all his life) the last week of April. His name is Chunk and he's a full blooded Chocolate lab. He's the light of my life. We have an older dog. He's a golden/lab/chow and we got him from another military family. He's two years old. I hope this isn't too personal but we decided to get Chunk after I suffered a miscarriage. He literally brought me back to life.
My husband deployed in May and both dogs prefer to smell all his old stuff and when he calls on skype their ears perk up and they start running around looking for him. It's very cute.
Right now Chunk is at the hospital battling parvo and I hope it's okay but I'm posting about it in the health section and any advice would be so helpful. Thank you all and I hope our stay here is a very long one.
Welcome! Sorry about the miscarriage. my aunt had one but now she is pregnant with a girl adn the baby is healthy. is it fun to be a lab mom? Sorry about the parvo.
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.

"A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"- John Grogan
welcome! good luck with the parvo.
