      JenC, are you thinking 2x2? I asked, she's had three lessons and is doing six weave poles.

      Yikes! Poor puppy! I've read and learned so much on this forum it's crazy. Funny, I worked in a vet clinic, and things brought up here were never mentioned there. That vet has since passed away, and we have sporadic vet visits here from various clinics...and they still wanted me to neuter Moose when he gets his rabies shots. No. You all taught me what that does, and my poor Golden, Max (RIP , luv) had a horrible time with his joints. I had no clue his early neuter probably factored into that. As well as his early jumping, stair climbing, etc. I am so careful with Moose now. two stairs to go out the back door only. NO jumping. Not on /off the bed, the sofa, anything. So, even if your friend didn't listen, don't stop advising! I'm listening! I've raised alot of dogs over the years, but never a lab. And things change, new medical findings, etc are important to me. So Thank You!

      Welcome to my world. Can't tell you how many folks I've tried to help steer to reputable breeders who were in too big of a hurry. Poor dog!

      Sad commentary of selfish people that have the "I need a puppy and I need it now" mentality. Do it right or don't do it at all.

      Actually, folks, these owners are not selfish. They did have to wait for this puppy. I cannot believe she will end up in a shelter and they are already spending mega bucks trying to help her. These owners are just naive and misguided. When we discussed early spay the answer was, "We did the previous dogs at that age and they were fine." It kind of makes it even more sad in a way, they DO care.

      Poor puppy. I'm just at a loss for words about the owners. They ask questions but are not will to listen and learn. My heart goes out to this puppy.
