This past December 16, 2006, my brother and I had to make the decision to put (my parents and my) black labrador retriever to sleep at the age of 11. She had hip dysplaysia, cancer of the liver and her heart was slowing down. My parents were out of the country on a vacation when it happened. Sara (black lab) was a great compaion to us all. She used to fetch my dad's slippers, bring the paper to my mom, play with our other dog Hannah,loved to swim in our backyard pool. I still miss her in my heart and Hannah (my other dog age 8) and Stormy (cat age 2), miss her also. Five weeks ago tomorrow, my parents and I picked up a black lab puppy named Abigail (Abby)we call her. She is three months old and even though we have her to keep Hannah and Stormy company, there is that spot in my heart still missing Sara. Abby has learned to bring my dad his slippers, play with Hannah etc. She is going to be a GREAT dog.
