    I will say this, I have already done two tests--hips are 'good', but she is an EIC carrier (I am sure she will be crapped on for that in this forum, ha). I make a decent living and do not need to...

    Man, it sounds like it better be a dog with some serious pedigree and/or titles to make it worth the gamble. I will say I would have found all of this out when researching breeding this summer...

    This is a long post, but I feel like a thorough background is important for the right advice. I bought a black lab female for my son for his 4th birthday back in February 2009. She has an OK...

    She is a 'beast' in water. Loves to swim and has retireved many times in water as well.
