Sorry to hear the news Bob. :( I had a black lab too, her name was Lucy.. They are a wonderful dog. She was a gentle giant. I remember a couple occasions she got porcupine quills in her face and mouth. I pinned her down, actually straddled her then covered her eyes with one hand while I grabbed a quill with a pair of pliers. She would flinch and yank the quill out as I held onto it. But She never bit me. How impressive is that?? Almost like she knew I was helping her. She was a sweet dog.. :)

Sorry about your loss HB but you did get a gift by not having to pull the trigger yourself. I had to put one down in Feb of 13 and then one in December. It was the right decision in both cases but damn did that ever hurt. Maybe yours and mine are having some fun in Heaven right now but I am sure of one thing, my Quincy has taken over and shown everyone who is boss and just how things are gonna be around here now!!! HEHEHE, it does get easier but there is always that empty spot. Be well, NWB
