New pup , Luke says hi


Recommended Posts

black labs are great. Set aside some money for chewed up... EVERYTHING. Worst for me was a custom ordered leather 1911 holster for my kimber that would allow me to leave my tac light on. Took 4 months to get and cost around $100.

I had it on the gun inside the bedside safe to help stretch and loosen it a little, but the snap was tight and I took it off when going out of town in case the wife needed to use it. Returned to learn that "idk he must have found it and chewed it up"

ugh. still love him.

Lol, home come they find just about the one thing you really don't want them to chew on the nightstand, and leave the slippers sitting on the floor.

just a side note, and I know there are some pretty intense opinions here. My wife and I had our first dog while dating. He was a golden retriever and the greatest dog I've ever known, and I grew up with 2 awesome chocolates. He ate dry purina pro plan his whole life and never had an issue outside of hot spots which were entirely our fault for not brushing him enough. He lived 15.5 years which is great for that breed.

Our breeder turned us on to raw food and that's what they started him on as a pup. We were skeptical about it, but did some research and our black lab Colt has been on raw food for the 18 or so months he's been on this earth. We mix veggies and stuff in and it's not that much more to feed him this way, but it is a bit more work. The best benefit is the extra trimmings and stuff from the deer that normally end up in the trash end up going to good use. Whenever we gave our labs deer scraps they would always puke, I think because their system wasn't use to it.

Just throwing it out there, and sorry if I opened up a can... no pun intended ;)

My sister feeds her German shepherd raw food she mixes up herself.  I've got 3,  50lb dogs.  I do add ven scraps or raw chicken and whatever veggies are left over into their kibble.

I kept and processed 3 of my deer this year to slowly turn my dog over to a partial raw diet. He’s always gotten some raw but going to make it more regular.
