View Full Version : Any Labrador retriever stories/service labs

12-15-2006, 08:29 PM
Hi All--I have just been made the "In Their Debt," for Just Labs magazine. I have written for the column in the past on the subjects of: Psychiatric Service Dogs, READ therapy dogs, Autism Assistance Dogs and traditional working dog titles. If anyone at the forum has a great lead/story idea, I would love to hear from you.

Congrats, Shelley! I hope you get lots of wonderful story ideas. :)

Thanks Anne! I already have several article ideas in mind, labs as you know are the most popular breed in America.

I've written for Just Labs! I wrote "Time for a Trim" for the October / September edition, and I just pitched another idea. ;)

I have a pair of rescued Labs myself. What about Labs who are rescue dogs themselves? I used to know some people from CESAR (Children's Emergency Search And Rescue). You might check out the CESAR people.

Feel free to peruse my blog for any ideas.... http://bunkiestory.blogspot.com/ . Labs are the best.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will follow up on them, right away!

I wish I could've written "Marley and Me." I'd be in the Bahamas now, away from all this freakin' snow.

Same. That was a great book.

At the very least, Just Labs bought my latest dog story. It's a step! Even if the cheque will go to ramen and kraft dinner instead of rum and cokes on the beach!

Gosh, can't remember the name of this place, but they place rescue dogs with vets from the Iraq war--there was a piece on it in the Chicago Tribune recently--a guy with an amputation had a labbie....

Some 17 year old kid around here is working to raise money for the cause....

Hope that helps!

Cate, that sounds perfect. I'll try to find out what I can about that group. In the meantime, just read that Jenna had her baby--congratulations!

Good luck--sorry I can't remember more details!

Thanks for the contact. I just received notice an article of mine will be published in September 2007 in Just Labs magazine

Here's a good story for you. Our neighbors at the lake have 2 labe. One blonde one named Koda and an old black one named Gus. They are both great dogs.

My little grand daughter who was probably four at the time stood in the middle of the yard watching Gus walk toward her. He sniffed her and wagged his tail. He was such a friendly guy. After about 30 seconds, he lifted his leg, peed on her and walked away as if nothing was wrong.
