My son Steve Jr. lost his lab about a year ago due to him wandering into the road, he was really attached to that dog. Recently Jr. had surgery on his left wrist from a accident at work and had 8 weeks of sitting around the house and doing nothing but rest and recovery.
Opportunity presented itself that I was able to buy a puppy that is the grandson of my AKC lab Honey-Behr. Since Jr. can't do anything but rest and not use his left wrist...he might as well house train his new puppy and put him in practice for when the new baby (his) arrives in less than a month...
He and Lacey named the new puppy 'Hunter"
