I'm sure that splintery wood will be more painful on the way out!
It's impossible to not read a dog thread.. My first four legged friend, Amber, is 3 yrs old. I've always had labs but my gf's brother had a litter of goldens so i had no choice. She turned out to be the smartest dog I know our family has had and one of the smartest I've ever known or heard of. She's my fishing buddy! We're looking for a boyfriend to breed with this spring. I work at home so being with her 24/7 probably helps. I'm starting to sound like a crazy parent..here's a pic!
