She was a pure bred lab used only for breeding. The owners decided to dispose of her in 2005 when her litters got so small they could no longer make money. She had problems then and we knew it but took her in anyway and gave her the best possible life possible.
I have no idea how to tell Amanda when she gets back from camp tomorrow. She will be crushed for sure.
