    I love Parker with all my heart. But this guy was certainly special, too...

    Awww! There are a lot of special ones in our lives, and they should be remembered often and fondly.

    Any picture of any of our labs, past or present, with their sleepy head on a soft toy just melts me. This is no exception.

    I was thinking more this morning about their differences, Parker and Wesley. Wes was definitely the product of a byb; I know that now. As much as our breeder tried, she fell short in a number of areas, especially with socialization. I believe Wes' health issues (TVD, cancer) were probably beyond her ability to screen (TVD is pretty much, as far as I know, beyond ANYONE's ability to screen), but his temperament issues I can probably lay squarely at her feet.

    The true depths of which probably only came to light with crystal clarity in seeing what the Kelrobin kennel does for its dogs.

    But all that aside, Wes and I had a very special bond. I had to EARN his respect, and he mine. But once we did, it was magical.

    None of this means I love Parker any less. But I do love him differently.

    Parker is Tom Hanks. He's immediately everyone's best friend. He'll walk up to you and in ten seconds, you'll know his full history. He's a warm handshake at a cocktail party full of strangers. He'll help you pack and move your stuff -- without complaint -- when you switch apartments. He's Doug from the movie "UP": "Hi there. I have just met you. And I love you."

    Wes was Walter Matthau. A little curmudgeonly, especially with adults (he had a soft spot for kids, though). A little aloof. He did not suffer fools gladly. He was the non-BS guy you wanted to go with you when you bought a used car. He was the corner bartender you turned to for advice: You may not necessarily like the answer he gave, but you knew it was both wise and practical.

    I am lucky to have both in my life.
