    Let's not live in a fantasy world I have seen a lot of Piggy labs also. My chessy has plenty that we need to work on but speed and style she has in spades.

    Both great choices. It depends on the personality of the owner. I have labs, but love the Chessie personality. I never wanted one due to the extra responsibility of potential aggressive, guarding behavior. Not to say labs are exempt, just usually a bit less testy.

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    You haven't watched a couple of the most popular black lab studs run either apparently. Piggy on blinds yet win and sell lots of straws of frozen because they have points. What's yours?

    I have extensively trained with, and run, Fatty. I have asked her personally: Do you prefer to be called "Fatty" or some other name. She is Fatty. And one nicely trained 'peake. 'Nuff said.

    Default What smell

    In less than 1 minute the smell will go away with a garden hose. A quick roll in the snow will do it is it winter. No soap required.

    I know the first 2 pros she was with in North Carolina and Maryland and they both liked her.

    I doubt that...she is a female after all. Here is an experiment for you....go ask your wife..."Do you rather I call you by your given name or Fatty?"After you regain consciousness, post up what she said. WRL
