it was amazing
bookshelves: dogus, nonfiction
Read in December, 2007

I was raised with cats.

I have no clue about dogs, especially Labs.

Now, I have a clue.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Labs was comprehensive without being overwhelming. The consistent message of Positive reenforcement and negative discipline made a lot of sense to me. But more important it contained a lot of important info from finding the right Lab and the right vet to detailing the how-to of dog grooming and training.

It's a book I'm definitely going to turn to when my time comes to get a puppy...

Katherine Willis Pershey YAY!!!!

I so love dogs. You and FD will be wonderful dog-parents.

I hope he/she is named after a writer or literary character.


Amanda Oh, Katherine! You crack me up! :)

We've got some really McRz names, don't you worry!

Once we've got everything lined up officially, then we'll make the announcement.

I'm reallyreallyreally excited, but I don't want to jinx it...

Kristin Oh my god--I can't believe it!

Yay you guys!

Now I have to picture a dog to go along with all of those crazy-camo. duck-hunting boats I'm seeing around the river here.


Amanda Kristin,

I'm sure he or she will have a camo collar or at least a camo vest for hunting. If we get a girl, I really want her to have a Vera Bradley collar. But it looks like we're leaning more towards a boy. We'll have to see once we meet the litter...

I'm nervous. Raising a dog looks like hard work...especially a puppy...

Gary McDowell "Raising a dog looks like hard work...especially a puppy..."

You have no idea.

But it's also so so so so worth it! Good luck on your puppy search!


Amanda Thanks, Gary. I remember how hard you guys worked training Bella. But I also remember how sweet she was...

I'll keep everyone posted! I promise!
