Mr. Brown as... Brad The Lab

Located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador is Brad The Lab – dog breeder extraordinaire. Brad’s great, great, great Granddad invented the Labrador dog, designing it with flippers (OK – webbed paws) for fetching fishing nets lost out in the North Atlantic Ocean. Whether fisherman’s friend or gun-dog on a shoot – the Labrador has been good for snaffling things ever since. After conquering the hunt on land and at sea, crazy as it sounds, Labrador’s are making the move online. In an astounding evolutionary feat, Brad’s bred a dog capable of sniffing stuff out electronically – on Ebay. Great for people who’re particular about their vintage Parkas.
