    We renamed him "sore thumb"...A.K.A. Kane; RD's Medicine Man. He was just over two YO in this picture. He is out of British FTCH Craighorn Bracken lines, as is our younger male, Flynn.

    He now has a fairly large scar under his right eye where he had a "go around" with a pit bull mix that decided to come after my wife while she was out walking...you don't attack the "food lady"! I closed him up with 3M surgical glue after I got the bleeding stopped and we took him over to the clinic to let Karen's bosses look at him and determine whether to stitch him up. The other bite marks were on the very edges of his eyelids.

    As a vet. tech. she loves to see shelter "rescue" dogs from metro Detroit Humane Society rescue and relocation efforts that get shipped up here. She recently pointed to one adoption "candidate" in one of their weekend ads, then proceeded to outline the three failed efforts to "match" him with suitable owners. Summary: bite risk, bite risk, bite risk-yet he still was not euthanized. The new "scheme" is to attempt to get vet. clinics to label these dogs "labrador mixed breed" when they bring them in for gratis healthcare and vaccinations at cost instead of pit bulls and pit bull mixed breeds, so owner beware.

    To the OP I double checked with my wife. All those silver labs. with bite risk on their eFile header were from different breeders, with two kennels out-of-state.

    Could someone explain to me why I would want to take fine China and expensive cutlury to a duck blind? I generally make do with zip lock bags and plastic knives and forks.
