"Without My Lab"
A Day w/o my Lab is a bummer.
A Week w/o my Lab is painful.
A Month w/o my Lab is stressful.
A Year w/o my Lab is depressing.
A Life w/o my Lab ain't worth squat.
Keep looking to the future, and think about that little pup that will be coming in the new year, at least you have something to look forwards to then. Memories of your old girl will last forever, there are a whole bunch of new memories just waiting to happen-
"some days you are the dog, some days you are the tree!"

I'm so sorry. Those words are so true. I can't imagine my life without Emma.

Keep thinking of the new furbaby to come, and treasure the wonderful memories that made you love Labs!

Sorry that you are hurting, Doug.
That is so true. But I know.....a new pup will just make your heart bigger with love. The lab that passed will always be in your heart.
Oh Doug, I'm so sorry.
I think thats beautiful. And so true, too.

We all handle the grief of the loss of a loved one differently. I know that in the loss of a family pet, bringing a new one into the family has always been the best therapy for me. Please note that I did not say replace, something that can't happen for me. But building a new relationship and new memories helps to occupy the mind most of the time. Occassionally of course, the new family member will do something that brings the memories straight to the front of the mind.
Hope yor new pup helps to fill the void and build a new future.

I am super excited. Sorry, I did not mean to give off the wrong sentiment. I am feeling better, and a great deal has to do w/ everyone here... and the anticipation of my new pup too!
I wrote this more as a poem, one based off what a lot of "Labbys" (Lab Owners), already know, and one that one day all of "Labbys" will know.
Hope this does not come off too morbid.
Wishing everyone here a wonderful day....
