Human Interest Articles & Stories
We welcome short stories from anyone with something

I have created a special section called the Partner's Corner where you will read about the
experiences of those that are part of our Labrador Retriever Community called the
Partners Program for the Betterment of the Breed.

About Labradors, Breed Standard
and Related Subjects


In true fashion to who I am, I present the following, telling like it is!!!
The opinions expressed in the following essays are solely those conjured from my 40 years of trials and tribulations with Labradors and all the frills that come with such an extensive relationship.

    the people that enter and show their dogs there
    and Cajun gumbo soup!

  • Chapter 2

    A quip-filled harangue to pass the time away!



  • Judging By The Pound by Sandy Herzon or maybe a better title would be
    "Fat Dogs Abound" 
    With the current trend of selecting breeder-judges to all-breed dog shows, we all need to fatten up our dogs to be considered for those elusive wins! Some dogs can just barely make it around the ring and their tongue will be working fulltime! The exhibitors handling some of these dogs make up all kinds of excuses as to why they move the dog so slowly.

  • You Be The Judge-    by Sandy Herzon is it luck or is it something else that makes some people winners, while others just don't get it? Is it luck or are there other forces involved?

  • Caveat Emptor by Sandy Herzon a must read for future puppy buyers. With the advent of the Internet and savvy websites we are now seeing a proliferation of more "breeders", to add to the already endless listing that may be found with a search for "Labrador Breeders".
