This is Molly, my 8 year old Labrador Retriever. I can't imagine my life without a Lab. Molly is my third Lab. First there was Teri, then Cash. Labs are extremely intelligent, intuitive dogs. She can talk with her eyes and she knows how to lift my spirits after a stressful day at work. She knows my routine throughout the day. In the morning she knows the first order of business is to let her out to go potty, then I feed her. I then get my coffee pot going. By this time she has finished eating and moves quickly to the room where my computer is located because she knows my next step is to check for e-mails! As soon as I get up from the computer, she runs to the living room - one of her favorite times of the day. While I am sitting with my coffee, she finds a way to "unobtrusively" get into my lap - all 55 pounds of her. Can you imagine drinking a cup of coffee with a big black Lab clamoring for your attention at the same time?
