    Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat. Females should weigh between 55 and 70lbs and Males between 65 and 80lbs. Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.

    If Cinnamon didn't play with destuffed body parts she would have no toys as she destuffs everything...then plays with the material pieces for months.

    For one minute......

    My friend used to work for a local country hospital and as she was on call that evening, the switchboard contacted her to ask if she could relocate an amputated limb that had been left in the Lab to the morgue !

    She was a bit reluctant and asked if I could help !

    I was just as apprehensive but of course you have to keep up the macho front so I said No Problemo !

    In the end, it was enclosed in a plastic bag so all that I did was lift the bag - nothing to see !

    You didn't want to hear this did you ?

    First question we ask of patients who come in with a detached limb of any sort- " Did you save it" I find it fascinating that they can be re- attached and useful, depending on the damage done. Now if you should ever make the not smart of move of reaching under the lawn mower without shutting it off first, well chances are you wont have to worry about saving anything As far as the OP, detached limbs are always fair game- just think of it as an extra toy
