I posted these pics on the photo board and never really introduced myself here. So here goes, My name is Wes and below are some pics of my 4 year old chocolate lab 'Gumbo.' We have had him for about 2 months now but he has fit in the family great! He was my brothers dog and he was looking to find a new home for him because of a move from Alabama to Montana and he really wanted him to have a good home so I decied I would take him in. We had just had to put our beloved English Bull 'Gracie' down a month or so prior, so I was a little apprehensive about getting a lab, only because I have never owned one before, but it has turned out great and we have no regrets about taking 'Gumbo' in. He has quickly become my best bud. ;D Here he is:
Welcome from WI; great to have you & Gumbo on the board.
You are so sweet for taking him in & giving him a forever home; sounds like he's fitting in with the family well.
Great looking dawg gumbo is.
Welcome Gumbo and Wes to the forum.
awww, gumbo, what a great mug you've got! i was a bit apprehesive about taking in my two-year-old black lab, fender, from my aunt and uncle because i'd never had a lab either and my little terrier had just passed. he's been with us almost a year now and i wouldn't trade him for the world! great how they find us even when we don't know we're looking. ;D
Welcome aboard! I love your pups name (and he is quite the cute dog).
welcome from NY! ;D
Thanks all! ;D
