Our “Sweet Girl”
The loss of a loved one is never easy and once you announce it to the world it becomes real. We loved our “Sweet Girl” so very much. She was more than a pet, she was a unique being who enriched our lives and the lives of all who met her.
We will meet you one day on the other side of the rainbow, our dear Cleopatra. Love You!!
Cleopatra passed away February 2014 – posted Dec 22, 2015
We would like to introduce you to our new love bug, Fanny Brice, “the Funny Girl”. She arrived in the world on August 9th, 2013. Fanny has helped us overcome a great loss. She was being raised to be a therapy dog, and decided to become our therapy instead. What a blessing to have such a gentle love puppy.
Things we can learn from our dogs:
• Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride
• Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy
• When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
• When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience
• Let other know when they’ve invaded your territory
• Take naps and stretch before rising
• Run, romp and play daily
• Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
• Be loyal
• Never pretend to be something you’re not
• If what you want lies buried, dig for it
• When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently
• Thrive on attention and let people hug you
• Avoid biting when a simple growl will do
• On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree
• When your happy dance around and wag your entire body
• No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout – run right back and make friends
• Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
Lab Fact: What makes a Lab unique? Many retrievers have Newfoundland and spaniels in their backgrounds, and all were bred to aid hunters in retrieving game. Labrador Retrievers, however, are unique in that they were first discovered in Newfoundland, a chillier and icier climate than the British Isles, where most other retrievers were probably developed. Labs have a shorter coat than some other retrievers, which prevents ice from clinging to the coat when the dog exits the water.
