    Well it has been about 9 mos. since I had to put my boy down due to cancer. I had him for just over 13 years, best buddy I ever had and still really miss him. He was a black lab mix (got him from the humane society).
    Have been thinking about getting a pup but just was not ready until this week. So I went to humane society the other day at lunch and found a chocolate lab mix. I hung out with him for about 20 mins to try to get a feel for his demeanor, he seemed pretty cool and I think he will get along with our other dog (she is about 9 now). So I put him on hold so my wife could check him out, she went and saw him last night and when she came home she gave me his paper work and told me "I got your dog for you" :) She filled out all the paper work and paid for him.
    Now I just have to wait for them to neuter him and go pick him up. They said probably next week, but since we paid for him and filled all paper work out they said if they get a chance to slip him in somewhere they will. Cant wait to get him home and see how he likes his new place. :D

    Gratz on the new pup! I have a black lab mix that I got from the Fremont Humane Society. Always happy to hear of someone adopting a shelter dog.

  6. Congratulations on the new member of the family, I sure love my little guy, he is just a mut but he is literally one of the family, sleeps with us everynight, gets birthday and christmas presents(sounds a bit extreme I know) but he is the best bud I have.

    Thats a real nice looking dog
  12. Tubuzz2, Nice looking dog. Congrats Stretch. I've got 3. A collie that is 12. He propably won't be with us much longer. Either has arthritis in his hind legs or hip displatia. A black lab that adopted us, may be mixed. Gets seperation angziety when I go away. And a Jack-A-Poo. (Jack Russel/Puddle cross) Got him from a neigher that couldn't handle him. She got it as a present from one of her daughters. Dog was to hyper for an older lady. Was rough at first as he wasn't house broken. He sleeps at our head and the lab sleeps at my feet. All 3 are spoiled rotten.
