    DefaultHello from Jules & I :)

    Hello from my Labbie and I, so excited to be here

    I am 21, and have literally always had Labs. My first was Whisper (yellow), when I was a toddler, next was Zoey (black) and then Summer (yellow) when I was 11. Summer still lives with my parents and is 10 years old

    I was the kennel agent for Windancing Labradors in high school, and did some showing, even got a 2nd place ribbon with a young chocolate stud at the Potomac Lab Specialty in Maryland, one of the highlights of my life thus far.

    The two Labradors that made the greatest impact on my life were Rail (black) & his daughter Julia (yellow). Rail was my best friend at Windancing. He meant everything to me, and when Julia was born, it was the same with her. I promised them they would be mine when they were retired. But sadly, Rail never got the chance. He passed away of cancer at only 3 years of age, and took a piece of me with him. After his death, Julia and I were inseparable.

    After moving away from home, I was told that Julia was rehomed. I was heartbroken, but determined that I would get her back one day. I recently found out she had been rehomed again about a year ago! This past week I got in touch with her new owner, and asked to adopt her when she retired. He blew me away by giving her to me this very morning! She is lying next to me as I type this, as if she knows she is finally home. My world is complete at last, and each time I look in her eyes, Rail is more alive in my heart than ever.

    Julia is 4 1/2 years old, the picture in my avatar is when she was about 1 1/2.

    I'm a happily married mommy of a little boy, and a full-time business student at Penn State University
    So happy to meet you all & your Labbies

    Thank you for your sympathies, cancer is so cruel :'(

    Unfortunately dogs get passed around considerably more than I'd like to see in the show and breeding world.They are generally well-taken care of so I suppose there are worse things to complain about, but when a dog is not beneficial to a breeding program anymore, they are passed to a different one or retired to a pet home (me!). Julia won't be going anywhere now

    And I am actually the 5th home for Jules, 6th if you count when she went back to her original breeder's for the second time. She is 5, I had it wrong in my original post
