Smile Hello fellow animal lovers!!!

My name is Jerry, and I just found this site today. Seems like a cool way to interact with other pet owners, exchange insight and information, and learn some new things. My fiance and I just got a black lab retriever from a local shelter, he is 1 yr. and 3 months old, and we've named him "Jet". He is a really intelligent, loyal, and LOVING dog! We just love him to death, so I want to learn as much as possible! I look forward to chatting with many of you in the upcoming weeks and months! Take care, greetings from Colorado!

welcome to the forum to you and your furbaby. Now before 14+kitties gets here, she's really a photo junky, so you're really gonna have to post pictures of Jet for her, soon.

Hello and welcome!

Labs are awesome! We had a variety of labs when I was growing up, including one that had puppies. One of the black ones went to a close friend and they named him Jet too. Sadly he got run over when he was 8 months old. :sad: But anyways, congrats on the new edition to your family! May you have many fun-filled years with him. And yeah... pictures please!

Hi there Jerry!! Good luck with the labrador, i love those dogs. jet is a gr8 name. as said by just about everyone...pics please!!!

you said you and your fiance... good luck with the wedding

it is brilliant that you want to chat and learn as much as possible, i cant stand dog owners who just fling themselves into owenership and don't think about responsibility and care, so to you!!!!
i just happen to be getting a new puppy on the 28th of august, as regulars on this site might have noticed, i have posted many threads asking advice and quiestions about springer spaniels, and puppy questions. i am actually getting a sprocker spaniel and springer and a cocker spaniel mix. cute!!
