    DefaultA quote from James Michener....

    Taken from his novel, Chesapeake about the arrival of a new breed of dog to the Maryland Marshes to challenge the reign of the Chesapeake bay retriever as a consummate retriever.

    "A moment later the stevedore appeared on deck leading by a leash one of the most handsome dogs ever seen in Maryland. He was jet-black, sturdy in his front quarters, sleek and powerful in his hind, with a face so intelligent that it seemed he might speak at any moment. His movements were quick, his dark eyes following every development nearby, yet his disposition appeared so equable he seemed always about to smile.

    "'He's called a Labrador,' Lightfoot said. 'Finest huntin' dog ever developed'"




    A very fitting description don't ya think?-

    Absolutely a fine description. But then, Michener can describe anything well.

    I love that quote especially because I'm from Maryland.

    The breeder we got Molly from had that posted in her puppy room.
