Hank had been in the house only 24 hours when Edward nicknamed him the "hot chocolate leg bumper!" Here they are in the backseat of Mommy's car ready for Hank's first trip to Dr. Olson. Hank was still suffering the effects of parasites for the first few weeks he was with us but we're hopeful that an excellent diet and a life indoors will aleviate those problems. Hank has the traditional stocky labrador head and feet but his neck and torso are long and lean - this proportionality combined with the slightly wirey texture of his coat leads Dr. Olson to speculate that there may be some German Shorthaired Pointer DNA in Hank's mix. He is a bit clumsy and frequently falls off the bed and the couch but he's tough as a tank!
