Hello! First time posting, been on many times before as a guest. I've had my chocolate lab, Sadie, since she was 5 months old, from a family who decided they couldn't "handle" the commitment or energy of a lab. : Love her lots, she has become my partner in crime, until a fateful night in november when she "helped" me down the stairs! Looking at surgery in a couple of weeks to help repair the damage to my knee from that fateful night but, wouldn't trade her for the world! Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for all the advice that I have received and have taken advantage of, even though I haven't been a member of the forum!
