Flip is yellow male Labrador whelped at Amber Sky Labradors on November 1, 2005.
He was sired by Rudy and whelped by
Bailey. Flip was a special puppy in that he was born with
only half an ear at birth. It never finished developing, however it was not really noticeable
until he was about two weeks old. It was at this time that we affectionately called him 'Flip'
for his ear, sometimes we would call him 'Flipper' as well. We should not have been surprised as
Flip's grandmother is Lumpy named for the bump that was on her
head when she was whelped, which would eventually have to be surgically removed.
Here is what Flip's owners have to say,
On January 3, 2005 we purchased the best addition to our family! The pup
you named "flipper" is still known as our precious "flip." He is now 10
months old and about 75lbs. We couldn't have asked for a better labrador.
He has come to love and protect us and our two cats. He also has a blast
at all of our weekend trips to the lake. He is very happy and spoiled to
say the least.
