This morning on NPR (National Public Radio) I heard the owner describing how his relationship with his Lab changed his life.
Great story and I believe it.
You can either hear it or read it (or both) here:
Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]
Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":
Very sweet. And very true.
There is no doubt that Angus changed our lives. Dramatically. I used to curse the day we met. For many months, in fact. Now I sometimes wonder if we were led to him. Maybe God knew what we needed better than we did.
When I think of how many things are different because of Angus, it's really amazing. I couldn't list them all.
Connie and "The Boys":
Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD
Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever
Oona has taught me to enjoy the moment.
I have no doubt Kassa the black Lab I didn't really want changed my life for the better. As for Ernie. I will never be the same again. I never wish to be either.
Thanks for sharing this Bob.
Cute story. I'm the first to admit Buddy changed my life. The number of good friends I've made since having him is overwhelming. Seems everywhere I go, people ask about him even before greeting me with so much as a "Hi, how are you?"
I could bore you to death if I keep going so I'll leave it at that!
Great story! Thanks for sharing. I can also honestly say that Brigetta has changed my life. People tell me that she is so lucky that I adopted her...but they have no idea...I am with a doubt the lucky one.
Teresa, mom to Brigetta and Prudence
What a great way to put it.
Billie saved my sanity. No doubt about it. And she helped me create friendships with my neighbors that might not have been there the way they are now.
I love my human family but it's my dog that taught me how to get over myself and just accept that someone loves me back.
Great story and so very true. Tal as taught me many of those same things and it is nice to know he and Midnight know they can depend on me. I also like how Tal lives in the moment. He is a happy go lucky boy...
