As you know if you've read my blogs, I am an animal lover. This weekend marks the end of an era in my life. I used to raise pure bred chocolate labs - loved the puppies, but got to the point that I couldn't bare to sell them for fear they would be mistreated. I kept a pup out of the last litter and named him Doc Edward's Hot Chocolate, Doc for short. He was a big (150#) loveable guy that loved to fetch and was deathly afraid of thunder. His mom had to be put down just about a month ago and I had the horrible decision of having to put him down, too, on Saturday. This is the first time in 20 years that I don't have a lab under foot or begging to go outside to play fetch. Life will be different now...
R I P, Doc. Run and fetch and enjoy!
