I have been reading posts for about 2 weeks, and have really enjoyed all of your comments, and LOVE the photos!! I'm sure that I will probably drive nuts with questions, but you all seem to have great ideas. My lab is a black male, and I can't wait to get him home! We live in Cicero, not far from Syracuse N.Y. I'm hoping that some of you are from the area, as I am currently looking for good vet . Hopefully by the time he arrives, I will figure out how to put photos of him on here to share. Maybe by then we will have settled on a name for him, right now I'm down to Lincoln, Ruger ( although I see there is already a Ruger) Sawyer, Rinker,and Arlo, I'm waiting to see his personality. Looking forward to your knowledge of labs, comments, and suggestions.
