    After losing my '57' a year ago i've finally decided I want a new dog so i've joined the site in the hope that I can use the combined experiences of you all to point me in the right direction. Now I just have to work out if there's a particular place I need to post my questions.

    I've stuck one in the dog chat section but I think I may just written a bit much for anyone to be bothered to answer, got no responses yet. I've narrowed it down to a black labrador dog! Not much work to do then? It's the number of sites, breeders, things to look out for and the rest of it that has thrown me. Everyone has an opinion and knows someone who knows someone who knows someone. I just want a black labrador puppy dog but it seems the more I find out about pedigree dogs, the more I worry about making the right choices.

    Sounds a bit like my 5 year old to be honest Carol. I'll watch out for that one and make sure mine's one of the 10% if ever you see him.

    Hi Pat,

    I am new to this wonderful site and wondered how you are getting on with finding your new puppy. I had a litter of Labradors 5 weeks ago now, they are just adorable, have only just started to advertise as I found it really hard to choose which one to keep and hope they all go to loving homes, it's only the 2nd time in 10 years that I have breed and it will break my heart to see them go, they are soooo cute........... Hope that you find the dog for you.

    Jackie.:)
