Hello, everyone! My name is Kasey. I am 28, married with three kids, and an animal lover.
We recently took in a lab from a friend who was moving and didn't want to deal with the cost of buying a fence. I was originally annoyed with her, but then I came to realize that her loss was my gain! Bilbo Baggins, originally named just Bo, is a beautiful chocolate lab, and the biggest baby that there ever was. She complained about his behavior constantly, but I have found him to be close to perfect, with the exception of his counter surfing, LOL. He is great with the kids, so much fun to play around with, and just overall a great dog!
We also have two small dogs, a brindle mini dachshund named Diesel and a "chug" named Dobby. Bilbo is not the first lab we have owned- Tex, our chocolate lab was the very first baby that my husband and I had together but he was stolen out of our yard several years ago.
I love Bilbo and am glad he is a member of our family. He reminds me of how much fun it is owning a lab!
Welcome! Thank goodness this beautiful baby ended up in your care, your friend did not deserve him. These kind of stories make my blood boil but I am glad his has a happy ending, so many do not. Thank you for giving him a great life.

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Good for you for grabbing him up! He is a cutie!
Welcome to the forum.
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.
I seriously feel so blessed for having him in my life! My husband wasn't too sure about getting a third dog but he is just as much in love as I am. We were incredibly lucky to be able to bring him into our home.
Welcome to the forum! I am so glad you have Bilbo now! Poor boy, his family deserted him! I just don't get people, I guess. I would keep Sophie no matter how much a stupid fence cost! She's our baby girl! People really tick me off!
