Name: Janet L. in Mi. owned by a shiny black 80 lb. Lab named Satin (bl.& shiny) for 14 yrs. now she waits at the "rainbow bridge". :'( I'm older now & thought a Lab might be too much to handle so I now have a 9 mo. old black Cocker Spaniel that I luv to pieces but, I miss my friend still after 2yrs. Might still have to have another Lab too. Sooo, now you know I'm just nuts. :P I thought maybe dropping in here might be my Lab fix. Or not, but at least i'll know. Janet
Welcome. You'll at least get to see plenty of pictures of all sorts of cute labbies - although the puppy pictures have been known to cause "puppy fever"
Do you have pics of Satin and your Cocker Spaniel? I always love pictures.
If this board doesn't quite cut it as a lab fix, you could consider adopting a lab that is abit older and laid back. There are plenty of rescues who foster labs and could find the right one for you
I adopted Rocky when he was 1.5. I knew I had limitations as i live in a basement of a house (it's an apt) and have no yard. He was the perfect fit, happy go lucky, laid back and doesn't bark. he's an easy lab to have
Charlie (foster) and Rocky
Tanya had the same thought as I did.
Being "older" (65) myself, I am seriously considering fostering/adopting a senior lab after our dear Auggie (almost 12 and living with hepatocellular carcinoma) departs for "The Bridge".

Welcome aboard !! I agree, if you need more than a Lab fix , you can adopt a senior Lab !! So sorry you lost your Satin...... hope to see you around.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Welcome, from Gene in Chicagoland
