We are thinking of getting a Lab this Year sometime, we have a child due Aug. 10th. Does this matter? Also what are some things about Labs I should look for? I am NOT spending $600 on a pup :wink:, 1/2 that maybe. My best friends bought a black lab, and she was like the best dog ever, she got ran over the other day, 8 months old and smartest thing I ever saw. She didn't have a "block head" as folks call it. Is that something they "should" have? Anyway don't know where they got her, so anywho any help would be great!
