I am just re-introducing myself on the forum as I have been inactive for sometime now since I first signed up on this board.
I am from the Pittsburgh area and have one yellow Lab female named Hanna and also ended up acquiring a German Shepherd a year ago. I am not new to dogs nor inexperienced as I have been reading and have done a lot of research on the Lab and retriever breeds.
"Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to living creatures cannot be a good man." - Arthur Schopenhauer
