Another year has come to a close and we are at the doorstep of 2015.
For me, 2015 marks 30 consecutive years of owning a Labrador Retriever! And later this year, I plan to bring home another Lab puppy. Since Molly died in March, I really miss the craziness of having two dogs in the house.
First there was Teri. She was a very loving dog. I had other dogs in past years, most were mixed breeds and one was a purebred from champion lines. With Teri, I knew that a Labrador Retriever was the only dog for me. When she was about 5 years old, I got Cash, a yellow Lab from the same breeder that Teri came from, Gladys Rodgers over in central New York. Cash had a mind of her own and there was never a dull moment with her around.
Next came Molly. Cash was getting on in age and by this time, I knew my life was not complete without a Labrador Retriever in the house. And most recently, Morgan came into my life in 2012.
I really feel sorry for people that don't know the joy of owning a Lab. Yes, they are hyperactive, rambunctious puppies that can test your stamina. But somewhere about the two year mark, they turn into wonderful, loving members of the household.
Morgan and I look forward to bringing home a new yellow Lab puppy sometime in late summer to early fall this year. I found a very good breeder in Cobleskill, NY, Four Seasons Labradors, where Lab #5 will come from! Still tossing around names for the puppy, but that is normal for me!
