I never dreamed I would ever own a black Lab or have my life changed for the better by Labradors.
Family had rung up about a black Lab and there were 2 girls left, but I didn't want one. It was a lovely Summer evening and Garry suggested we go and see it. O.k. I will go for a car ride and look. Just look.
All those little black puppies were adorable. The mother kept trying to kiss me and I fell in love, but still not sure I wanted one. Garry couldn't put down one he said "asked to come home with us." The breeder said she was most like her mother. I was about to write the cheque and thought I never spend this much on impulse what am I doing, when she licked me and the breeder said the pups are going in a few days so we could take her now. How could I resist.
Poor wee darling was crying and scared so I put her under my big flannel shirt,and she cuddled up to me shaking and crying. I stayed in the car with her cuddled up while we stopped at my SIL for bedding and at the supermarket for food. By the time we got home it was 10.30 and she was exhausted.
She loved that flannel shirt as much as I did and when she needed a cuddle would bring it to me and I would put it on and cuddle together while she sucked on it.
A year later we meet her litter mate Ernie at the pet barn. Soh Hoon told me she wanted Kassa and had asked the breeder if they could have her ( even several days before they picked up Ernie)and were told they were keeping her.
The night we bought her home.

To this in 3 years.
She always had a cushion under her head when she lay there.
This was taken a few days before she went.
edited to add a pic.
Oh I had never heard Kassa story before. Thanks for sharing it again. She was a beautiful dog.
What a sweet story. I'm so sorry she isn't with you anymore. :'( But I'm glad you met Soh Hoon and Ernie, it was meant to be.

Kassa's short life was full of love.
Thanks Kass for showing Chris how wonderful labs can be. What a wonderful memory of that first day.
Amazing how these sweet creatures steal our hearts, even when we try to fight it. What a sweet young lady Kassa was.
She chose you. She just knew.
Thanks for sharing. She was a beautiful lady!
I'd never heard Kassa's story either.
She definitely chose you.
Thanks for sharing Chris. I know how much you miss your sweet girl.
