We own a phenomenal chocolate lab named Robin. She was given to us by a very good friend. (We got her just after my son Bat was born and BatMann & Robin seemed the perfect combination.) Robin is an outside dog that is house-broke, she is an excellent guard dog and she is great with kids. She is so used to my shooting that when I walk out of the house with a gun she get’s in her pen all on her own.

I've owned almost every breed of working dog and none compare to our lab Rob Rob.

Robin is now eleven and we want a back-up; a young female lab she can indoctrinate into the kind of dog we need in her last few years. That’s our goal for 2011.

Anyone with a good lead on a good line of chocolate labs – other colors might be considered – would be appreciated.

    I searched high and low for an excellent Labrador 4 years ago, looking SD to ME to LA (Louisiana). Pored over bloodlines, pedigrees, websites, you name it. Ended up with one 30 min from home here in west MI despite my willingness to go anywhere. Our now 4 year old female is a great hunter as well as titled in hunt testing – all training by my wife.

    As I’m sure you know color should be your last choice, but I’ve got leads on all 3 colors still if you’re interested. E-mail me and if you want we can also discuss at the SHOT show.

    I’ll admit that I’m not much of a dog guy, but my when my wife’s yellow lab was getting on in years and my daughter wanted a puppy we took the same approach: get one now so that it can learn from a veteran how to be a pet in our family. It’s worked out well for us and I must admit that I’ve grown quite attached to both of our four-leggers. The older one is hanging in there so far and the younger one has turned into a great pet and friend of my daughter. I’m glad we did it this way.

    Good luck on your search.
