Hank's 8 Month Update

Last Update: July 19, 2019

Greetings Success Engineers!

On January 14, 2019, I wrote a post titled,"My Name is Hank". That was four days after our youngest son bought Hank, the yellow male Labrador Retriever. Hank was the off spring of the sister of our other black lab, Penny.In that post I promised to give an update on Hank. At Hank's first veterinarian visit the Doctor advised he thought when Hank is fully grown he should weigh between 90 and 100 pounds. Well, he was right. At 8 months old he is now around 75 pounds and has outgrown his "sister aunt", Penny.

Hank has proven to be a very loving puppy and is very loyal to all of us in the Harris family. The only thing he has problems with is eating absolutely everything he finds on the ground. I"m afraid one day that habit may cause some real issues.
Penny and Hank are pretty much attached at the hip and are inseparable. I guess one day neither will be living with my wife and me since both boys own them individually.

Thanks for reading this short update about Hank. If you have time, drop a comment and let the community know what kind of dog(s) you have and let's see how many different breeds everyone own.

By the way my friend, I used to have a lab his name was little Warlock. He was the one of the best dogs I have ever owned. So very very smart, we let him out in the backyard and when he was ready to come in he will hop the fence, come to the front door and knock on the door with his paw. We could leave him on the front porch go away for the whole day warlock would be there when we came back. He only bark if he failed he was threatened or we were threatened. I miss worlock so much.

Hi Cal - Your buddies are both lovely. Hank is a big beauty and looks loved which is key to a balanced and happy dog.

My dog is called Bertie, he is a cocker spaniel, he will be 2 at the end of Oct.

Just like Hank Bertie eats ANY item of food he finds when out on a walk, his latest attempt at foraging was a chocolate coated waffle. It took me ages to get the gunk out of his clamped teeth, the waffle removal happened next to a queue of rush hour traffic.

On the plus side the look on the queuing drivers faces as they watched me wrestle brown gunk from my dogs mouth was priceless, especially when I wiped the brown on my old dirty dog walking jeans!

Dogs = Love = Happy days.

Funny story about Bertie Mike. Hank tends to eat anything on the ground, sticks, plastic, leaves, and especially bugs. I don't know how many bees he's eaten.

What a big handsome boy! Labs are great dogs. Bigger than mom? Gene

Hi Gene, not sure about his mom, however, since she is the sister to our black lab I would say he's towering over his mother. I have not met the father, but, I hear they are very similar.

Nice to hear the update in Hank! We are dogless at this time after our little Shih Tzu Bella passed away. We will get another dog someday when we are settled. They’re great!

Sorry for your loss Jeff, we go attached to these animals. You will know when it's the right time to get another pooch.
