Arrival Story: I always wanted a dog of my very own. My family aways had black Labs so I wanted to be a little different so I picked Chocolate. I searched the papers for a long time trying to find a purbread chocolate lab that I could afford. Well a few weeks before my birthday I saw an add in the paper for puppies for sale in a near by town. I called and asked if they had any chocolate males left. They had only one left so I asked them to save him for me and that I would be up to see and get him in a couple days. My mother and I drove up to get him and his mother meet us at the truck and we went to see the puppies. They were all so cute but Duke was my favorite. We decided right there that I would take him and we started off for home. On the way home we ran into a big thunder storm and Duke curled up in my mom's lap and fell asleep.
Bio: Shortly after I got Duke he started to lose all the hair on his head and chest. I took him to the vet and found out that he had mange. I contacted the breeder and found out that the whole litter had mange. The best there vet could figuire out is that since she had 12 puppies it ran her down so much and the pups all got mange. I had to dip him every week for a month until all the mites were gone. By then most of his hair was gone too.
