I'm sure he was equally glad he found you. We plant a tree with our pet's ashes on our property. Each tree represents the qualities of that particular dog or cat. Each season as I do yard work, the memories of those beloved family members come back to join me as I putter around the yard. We especially love labs.
Sorry for your lost. We got our family first puppy last summer from our WWF member Gary...Golden Retriever. He has been a blast after month 5, first 5 were very trying. Turned out to be an awesome pup/dog at 11 months old now. My fear is the 10 years from now, i do not look forward to it.
