Meet Dexter

Dexter is a 7 month old Chocolate Lab, 61 lbs, which I rescued this weekend from DFW Lab Rescue:
Dallas / Fort Worth Labrador Retriever Rescue Club

He is my third lab from DFW Lab Rescue. I've been looking to adopt a third for a while now, and with Dexter finally found my perfect match.

Tyler is an 8 year old Black Lab
Molly is a 5 year old Yellow Lab
Dexter is a 7 month old Chocolate Lab

Dexter is very dark Chocolate, not the typical Chocolate color. His coat will improve now that I have him. He will grow to be slightly larger than Molly, my 85 pound yellow lab. Tyler has a bit of Chow mixed in him, so he is small at 68 pounds.

I've got some photos of my labs here:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks Mike...

your advocacy makes a difference and sets an example. Our last 4 are all rescue labs. We continue to foster and transport as well.

Maybe Dexter is Semi Sweet chocolate and not Milk chocolate. That's why he's so dark. They are all good looking dogs and very lucky to have a nice home and a good owner.
