"I believe in integrity. Dogs have it. Humans are sometimes lacking it."
Phineas, a lovable family lab is sentenced to die because he mouthed a neighbors child when she fell on top of the child he lives with and loves. No skin was broken. The Lexus Project has been brought on
to this case.
From owner of Phineas: “Our dog was on a tie out in our back yard when a neighbor’s child entered the yard. She fell and in so doing, knocked down our
daughter. Our dog went to the defense of our daughter and with open mouth, grabbed the side of the child, possibly to pull her off, but not in a vicious manner. The mouthing bruised the child but did not even break the skin. I saw it as soon as it happened. A mandated call by the hospital was filed with the city, our dog was confiscated on June 22, 2012 and has been held now for more than nine months.”
April 18, 2013 - From the Lexus Project
The fight to overturn the judgement is far more involved and time consuming than had we been involved from the beginning.
That said, our first efforts after making sure the dog is safe will be an attempt to settle instead of litigating which can cost thousands and keep Phineas locked away indefinitely while it makes it’s way through the court. We can almost guarantee that if any settlement is possible, it will require Phineas to leave the state.
The owner of Phineas feel that it would not be in Phineas’ best interest to return him back to the town he lives in. Their have been actual death threats regarding Phineas. Originally they had hoped to move him to a large farm out of town, however they have realized that the best place for Phineas is out of the state of MO.

"A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose."
If you are like me, you enjoy a good Labrador Nose picture. They are always fun to take and you have to position yourself just right. Now you need to be quick with the hand or you may end up with Labrador smudge on the lens. The Nose picture process is pretty much guaranteeing a good smile or two. Martin sent in a picture of the Lab with his tongue out and then he sent another and I had to get the ball rolling on a showcase.
It’s a Lab Thing LABfan, Martin says Photography is just a hobby. He is self taught on Nikon SLR’s but has done some pet photography for people when he used to be a veterinary assistant. I think he is well on his way to a new career path. You can tell that he enjoys his photography and if you can make a little coin doing the things you love… well then, it just does not get any better than that.
It’s a Lab Thing definitely wants to thank Mr. SnapHappy for sharing his awesome nosy pictures of Labradors. If you live in the East Midlands UK and would like to do a shoot for your furry family member either at your home or out on walks, Martin says you can contact him at email@example.com.

Tex the Muddy Yellow Labrador
Tex is a quirky mud lovin’ Yellow Labrador. It’s a Lab Thing LABfan, Kathy adopted him from Luvin’ Labs Rescue a little over two years ago. ”He has the funniest personality of any of the labs we have ever had and his quirkiness really comes out when he is around water.” says Kathy.
“He is a true Lab as his love of water is only exceeded by his love of tennis balls! I am landscaping a backyard and the ground was so dry that I had to fill the hole for the tree with water in order to shovel the dirt easier. Initially he was very well behaved but it didn’t last long before the lure of the water won. Tex was having so much fun I couldn’t tell him to get out of the mud!” – LABfan Kathy
