She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food. John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store. <BR> <BR> Visualizing the family...

My name's Nancy, and I'm currently between Labs. My wonderful 13-year-old yellow Lab, Emma, lost her battle with cancer in March. I just submitted my adoption application to our region's Lab Rescue organization, and am hoping to be able to find a new furry friend next month. I found several contenders on their website, but I'm curious at who their adoption coordinators suggest. They were spot-on when they introduced me to my Emma all those years ago. I'm so excited!!

So far,he's just resting and we just tell him "no" when he tries to lick it. So far so good. Poor little guy, but I know it's for the best.

He was 13 but until a few weeks ago acted like a pup. Unknown to me, he had kidney and liver problems, probably cancer. He was in pain and had stopped eating and drinking. He could no longer walk, probably because of pain. I wanted only the best for him. I tried to stay with him in the end, but it was too much, for both of us.

Have been on sparkpeople for a few years, but I've never been active in a "team" yet. I have a 4 YO black Lab who walks with me 2 miles a day - a mile every morning and again every evening. I adopted him (Clyde...he came with that name!) a year ago from the humane society after losing my 11 YO black Lab to bone cancer. :( Saddest time of my life! Anyway, I'm looking forward to being a part of this team and chatting with other Lab lovers who are with me on the fitness journey!

I have a picture of my hubby with a Chimp on my spark page. For those of you who don't know the story: My husband is in Africa, the Republic of Congo to be specific. Since he has been there he has seen many disturbing things. I won't go into the whole story but things there are very bad. <BR> When he first got there he met a woman who has a sanctuary for gorillas and chimps. They are quickly become extinct. There used to be over 80...

I have lost 5 # but unfortunately it is due to the flu. just hope it does not come back. <BR> I have one beautiful yellow lab named Daisy Mae. She is 20 months old and so stubborn. We just had to move from our city house with a fenced in yard to a townhouse out in the more rural area and not a fenced in yard. She has more room to play in our yard, but she wants to roam and run. She does not u... Wed, 20 Aug 2008 23:26:38 EST Sadness http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x12576x17827034 My BIL called last night to tell us that they had to put their yellow lab down. She's Molly's sister. (Molly is my dog.) She was only 8. She was diagnosed with diabetes about a month ago. They gave her insulin but it made her hypoglycemic. So they let her off it for a bit and she got worse. So they took her back to the doctor and they tried a different type of insulin. Well, she got sicker still and started peeing blood. So since her quality of life had deteriorated so badly, they to...

She's my best friend and follows me everywhere. Heck the cat follows me and so does my 3 year old son. My dh commented on it one day. Each room I move to the whole entourage comes along with me.
