At the shelter we found a pitiful black Lab mix in a very small cage. We asked to see her and when she was taken out of the cage, she wouldn’t stand up. In the yard, still would not stand. Of course we took her home. Even had to carry her to the car! She was afraid of riding in the car, the TV, a leash, water, and just about everything. She would walk around puddles to avoid water! A Lab, afraid of water! After about 6 months, she stepped into a creek and my husband and I rejoiced! After that he would take her on the boat and she would jump in the lake. We called her Raeven the Magnificent. She was the absolute smartest and most grateful dog we’ve ever had. We had her for 13 wonderful years.
