    DefaultLesson: Only do business with Lab Owners

    It has taken me several months to get to this. DW finally pounded hard enough on my head, I guess. So Hershey Kisses got into our bedroom one day several months ago, unsupervised. We found the knob to a light switch/dimmer on the floor ruined and of no use. I have searched many places trying to find replacements and finally found the manufacturer's website and sent this email.
    -------------

    SpecialtyLighting.com web site:

    Subject: Replacement Part

    Message: I need a replacement knob for a dimmer that is installed in a
    piece of furntiure we bought many years ago. I cannot find a part number,
    but have included links to pictures of the part. Please feel sorry for our
    Chocolate Lab - Hershey Kisses (pic also incuded) that is going to get killed if you can't provide me a way to replace the knob she detroyed.

    Today I got a reply,
    ------------------------
    Ed,

    Thank you for your inquiry. We no longer have the light brown knob you
    need replaced. However, we do have a dark brown knob. In the spirit of
    saving your lab, I'd be happy to send you a replacement knob at no charge.
    Please provide your name and address and I'll get the part in the mail.

    Best regards,

    Greg

    PS I have a yellow lab, so I have first hand knowledge of how much those
    guys enjoy chewing

    Needless to say, I sent him the information he needed and some deep thank you's for saving HK.
