Hello everyone, I'm Kerryn, I've read and commented on Pippa's blog for a while, I don't know how I missed the forum - but I've found it now! And it's nice to meet you all. I wanted a black labrador since ever I can remember, I got my first when I was aged eleven and I've not been without one or two ever since. Current pack consists of Maia who's 12 and Hebe aged 5 plus Hebe's best mate Finnegan who is a large, rather stupid two year old Irish Wolfhound, the only dog known to man to be run over by a stationary vehicle! see Hebe's blog: http://black-labrador.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/oh-finn-only-irish-hound.html Yes, clever Hebe has her very own blog, although we do kind of take it over from time to time. Our pack leader was Juno but she died earlier this year aged 15, I'll put a bit about her on the Rainbow Bridge thread (see I've been rummaging). My girls are all of working stock and even if I don't have time to work them I train them as they were. We're fortunate enough to live in the middle of the North York Moors - thus the Moorlands tag. OK enough rambling.
