Shiner Fortune Childress
I tossed and turned all night long because this little guy was in a kennel in our utility room. Kyle and I have tossed around the idea of adding a dog to our 2 cat mix and were considering a $575.00 chocolate lab from Conroe, TX however we didn't think that Dave Ramsey and his Total Money Makeover would allow it :) So we were walking around Petsmart one night and just happened to ask a dog trainer if she knew of any breeders in the Austin area with chocolate labs. She replied that she knew of a breeder who had one little male black lab left. She told us that he was AKC registered and cannot find a home because of a little scratch above his right eye. She also told us that he was FREE!!! We rushed out to the car with the little piece of paper with the breeders name and number on it, called her, and she brought him to meet us 30 minutes later. We fell in love with this little guy and brought him home with us on Saturday. We named him "Shiner" because of his scratch on his eye and I just love him! I hope that he likes to run. Maybe I have finally found my running partner.
