How "Remedy" came about as a kennel name. 
My husband had a boat when I met him, it was named Remedy.  The boat was sold to build his hospital and the 1973 corvette that we drove was given the license plate,  "Remedy".  After our first litter in 1986, we moved to the country and the fiberglass corvette could not withstand the then dirt road so the corvette was sold and we got a Ford Bronco to be able to take the Labradors with us and our  property where we live was named Remedy.
Thus, the kennel name of Remedy.
