Hello everyone! My name is Kari, and I am a 22 year old nursing student. I will graduate in May with my BSN. I can't wait to be done! My dog is Riley, a 5 1/2 month old black lab, who I got about a month and a half ago. Unfortunately, he was from a backyard breeder, and we have been and continue to deal with some of the issues associated with that. Fortunately, I now know a lot more about what to look for in a breeder and pups and will not make that mistake again. He has had eye surgery to correct entropion, and, in my opinion, he is going to be WAY above breed standard for height and weight. Regardless of this, I love him and would like to learn more about him and his breed from those of you with lots of experience. Hopefully some of you will be able to answer some of my questions as well. I look forward to becoming active on this forum!
