Hi Lab lovers,

So let me tell you a little about my story. I am scared of BIG dogs. At least I used to be. I was bitten by a dog when I was very young and have always been scared of dogs since then. It didn't help much that my sister was also bitten and my mom is just terrified of dogs. Needless to say I was never really around dogs. I never feared the little one's but boy the big ol' dogs sure got my heart pumping.
My husband has always had dogs. So of course he wanted one. I was planning on finding us a "little" dog. That was until I saw the most adorable black lab. It took an hour to decide; we discussed that the dog would be my husbands.......more than mine. And so we adopted this beautiful dog and named him CHICO. Little did I know that three months later my husband would leave to go work outside of the country.
So there I was...alone...with the dog....who was just starting to get BIG.
Well today he is definetly BIG and I truly belive he was meant to be MY dog! He helped me outgrow my fear. As he got bigger I became more confident and the fear litteraly vanished. Now I am a total dog lover. I can't belive I didn't get one sooner. I never realized how much joy a dog can bring into your life. Don't get me wrong if a big dog starts running towards me I still get a little stressed but nothing like I used to. I truely love all dogs now.
So all that to say that I love my dog. Since my husband is away for such long periods Chico has become a huge part of my life. I still have alot to learn when it comes to dogs but I am so excited that I am no longer scared. Chico is a great companion and is now becoming a great workout buddy. Thanks to him I get every day..usually twice and get my cardio done.
Love love love LABS!!!!
Have a great day everyone!

I believe in myself!
