    DefaultThings happen for a reason I guess.

    So I said I wasn't in a hurry for a lab pup and now I know why. We have brought a beautiful 12wk old girly into our lives. She was purchased during a local event where they showcase all types of hunting and fishing stuff. One duck hunting plantation place had a pup that they raffled off,the person won her and she was to much for their 3lb chihauhua and so they told someone that works with my husband about her and that person told my husband because they knew we were looking so for the cost of her vet visit and 2 heartworm preventative treatments she is home with us. She was at the vet today and she turned 12wks yesterday and weighs 27.2 lbs,she had been living in a crate most of the last 3 weeks so she gained to much weight,the vet said to make sure to give her plenty of exercise and watch what she eats.

    Congrats....but I have to say, this is exactly WHY people shouldn't raffle dogs off for a "charity Auction".

    Congratulations on your new pup! I'm so glad you ended up with her. I'm trying to remember back to my Animal Control days and I think it is/was illegal to raffle off pets in my state. Not sure though.....

    yeah I had actually saw the pup while they were having the event. Its a huge event at the state fairgrounds, I'm not sure how the raffle thing goes but they didn't mention it was for a charity so I think they probably just kept the $$. But I do agree this pup was won,they probably didn't take into consideration they had a small dog and how life would be. They won the pup for $5 which would be a heck of a deal for someone who really wanted a lab. I'm happy we got her though,and she is very very smart, I can tell she is going to be one that will get bored and try and entertain herself if I let her and that could end badly.

    IMAG0044.jpg Shes a little hard to photograph she wants to be into everything. She has an obession with our other labs mouth though and that has gotten her into a little trouble.

    so cute!!! Congrats on the new addition.

    I can't believe that people still use live animals for raffles or prizes...so sad! I am glad you ended up with her.

    She a beauty! I just can't imagine raffling off a puppy. I am glad you got her. A good rule of thumb for lab puppy weight is 2 lbs per week. I think now that she is not kept in a crate all the time, the exercise will bring her weight down.
