We live on a 500 acre farm in the Ozarks of Missouri raising Black Angus cattle and colored Angora goats. We have three Great Pyrenees for protection of the stock and I always said I would not have a non working dog on the farm. That was until my 10 year old son asked for a dog of his own that was not always with the animals or living in the barns. At first I said no but then after him earning it I realized, every boy should have a dog. Our neighbors have Labs and love them to death so it was an easy decision for me on what type of dog he should have...a Chocolate Lab! After a lot of searching we were off yesterday on a road trip to Oklahoma where we met a great breeder and purchased a Lab. Well 10 hours and three pieces of clothing later, from the wonderful biting, I found your forum and we are already making progress. I am now tempted to rename him T-Rex after his shredding ability of kids clothes! I am sure we will spend a lot of time on your forum and appreciate those that make it possible as well as those offering advice to a "Lab Newbie".
