Misty is my 7 month old black lab. I got her when she was about 10 weeks old. A friend of mine found her dumped off on his driveway, and sent out an email to try to find her a home. Luckily, I was the first to respond! Misty is a very good dog, and she is so smart. We got her on a Friday, and by Sunday she had already learned how to ring the bell we hung on our back door to let us know she needed to go outside. She has never had an accident in the house! Strangely enough, I never used to be a dog person. In fact, I really did not care for dogs at all and tried to avoid them. My younger sister desperately wanted a black lab puppy, and when I received the email about Misty, which included her picture, for some reason I found myself willing to give this a try....and I'm so glad I did! Now I'm totally hooked on labs. I never thought I would be cuddling with a dog, getting all slobbered up at times, and even making sure she gets a bath a couple of times a month with the lavendar and mint shampoo and conditioner I bought her. She is definitely a spoiled girl...my whole family loves her to death. She lives with me (23 yrs old), my 16 year old sister, and my parents, in St. Charles, MO.
I've never been much of a dog person either - until now. I got Jake in the same manner as you got Misty (he was dumped near our home). He is also almost 7 months. He's a lab mix (with what I don't know!). They warm your heart in so many ways!
