Narrated by Elise Franco Like most healthy Labrador retrievers, Beo loves water and loves to fetch. The four-year-old black lab barrels toward the lake at his temporary home and leaps into the water after a stick thrown by a visitor. Once he grabs it, he paddles to the shore, jumps out, drops the stick, shakes off and waits for the next throw. Beo’s temporary home is with Paula and Dom Carella of Northeast Ohio Labrador Retriever Rescue, where he’s one of 19 labs and lab mixes. Beo’s owner, Private First Class Michelle Delvillan, and her husband, Robin Rodrigues, are stationed in South Korea with the Army. Delvillan left the dog with a family before she left last September, but that family could no longer care for the dog.
