Hi I’m a dog lover and my new lab pup is the 4th dog I’ve had in my life. My family adopted a senior poodle when I was 15. He lived well into my early 20’s, then I adopted my own dog when I was 26, a 5 yr lab mix from a pet hoarding situation, she passed from cancer 2 years later. It would be a few years before I adopted another dog. When I did adopt again it was a 10 month old black lab mix who changed my life. He was absolutely amazing, great with people, other dogs and a wonderful companion for running, boating, hiking and snuggling on the sofa. Sadly he passed at 8 years old in February of 2020 from liver cancer. Fast forward to July and I decided to love (adopt) again. I rescued an 8 week old lab puppy mix, I’ve had the little guy in my home for a week now and whew it has been interesting and there’s been A LOT to learn. Looking forward to this forum and meeting everyone.
