Mr. Eko — named after a character on the hit TV show “Lost” — was adopted seven years ago from a rescue league by the Pierce family on Candlewood Drive. While he weighs in at 100 pounds, this English black Lab is really a gentle giant who loves attention. He’s known for entertaining the neighborhood by howling on demand, with “Werewolves of London” among his favorite songs to howl along to. In lieu of retrieving balls and bones, Mr. Eko would rather hunt rabbits and chipmunks that dare enter his property. He also enjoys carrying Kevin, Chrissy and Violet Pierce’s shoes to them in exchange for a treat as well as laying on their feet to keep them warm.
