Phylis and her husband Lenny live in New
Orleans, Louisiana with their three yellow Labs, Zoe. Dudley, and
Deezel, one chocolate Lab, Sammie, and their Rottweiller, Zena. Phylis
and Lenny also are parents to several reptiles, and an African Grey
Parrot, Obie who helps call all the fur children in the morning to
go outside. The oldest member of the family is a tabby cat named
Stripes who is 15 years old. He loves when the Labs are at rest so
he can curl up with them and have a nap.
When Phylis’ shadow, Reba, a 5 year old
Rottweiller, went to Rainbow Bridge in the early part of 2002, Lenny
knew Phylis would miss such a loyal companion and the hunt was on
for a new best friend. Phylis and Lenny found 3 wonderful Labs and
they have become the very spoiled. Not that she would have it any
other way. Recently, they have adopted Sammie, who is very demanding
for all the attention she can get. Sammie has been a wonderful
addition to the Lab group. All of their fur children love to help
prepare meals since they are the “clean up crew” for anything that
hits the floor.
Phylis loves spending time with her family and
the Lab Gang when she is not at work. She also likes sewing,
cooking, gardening, and walks with the pups. Phylis loves
volunteering for LABMED. She realizes she can not adopt all Labs but
feels this is the perfect way to help as many rescued Labs as
possible in hopes of finding a second chance.
