    DefaultHi from the Mississippi Gulf Coast

    I'm 28 and my name is Matt. I have a 7 month old Lab mix named Duke. I had a yellow lab Dakota and his brother a black lab Denver when I was in Kindergarten in 1990. Dakota died in 93 but Denver lived until 2005. I've since felt pretty lacking when the family's Dobby Rott mix died a few years ago. I got Dike from the local animal shelter. He was 10 weeks old. He had parvo, kennel cough, and worms. He was taken to the vet quickly and apparently bounced back so fast an hard that the vet and staff were amazed. They said none had ever bounced back like that before. Because of his origin I have no idea of his true lineage but I see a lot of Lab and so does everyone else including the vet. I bought him because he looked the most like a Lab. His brothers and sisters had other features though and Duke never looked full lab to me either. He's unbelievably energetic and has a head like a brick. His head is in fact larger than a 70 lb females now. But he still seems skinny to me. The vet says he's not unhealthy. He said he could gain some and be ok but he doesn't want him losing any. Sorry for the long post, lol. So, hi.

    Okay I tried to post a picture but I'm not seeing anything. I don't think I'm doing it right.

    This was his first couple of days with me. Note the shaved foreleg from parvo treatment.

    He is really cute. I am glad he is now healthy. I never realized his many puppies in shelters have parvo.
    It can be a bit slow around here on weekends but is mostly a great group of Lab lovers!

    Well that's good. And my vet said every dog he saw this particular shelter had parvo. Terrible they don't clean we'll enough. Any clue to his other lineage? He has a pretty strong under bite.
