We lost Dugan 27 Aug, 2015. He was a rescue and became my best friend and was quite the character! I miss him every day as does his best friend, Wrecks, the Chocolate Lab.
We are now getting another rescue - 9 year old Black Lab female. It took awhile to get to this point.
He'll always be my boy.
(I had to re-register - formally BEM)
Everybody had to reregister after a crash a couple of years ago.
I'm so sorry for your loss of Dugan...he looks like he was a really neat dog.
Good luck to you and Wrecks (love it!) with your new addition...hope you'll stay on and share her and Wrecks with us.

Barb (ID formerly "Baffle")
So sorry about your loss of Dugan. You honor him by getting another and giving him the home he always deserved.
Welcome back! Many of us have felt that sorrow when one of our dogs die and can still be brought to tears just thinking of them. That it took you so long to be ready for another dog is a testament to Dugan, as is now opening your hearts to this girl who needs to be loved. Please stay and let us know how things go.
So sorry of your loss of Dugan. He had to be an extra special dog, as are all rescues. Hope your new addition has your heart before you know it. Please shower us with pictures and stories of her and Wrecks.
Dugan= He is playing, running and swimming across the Bridge with our pups that are there also.

I'm so sorry.....looks like he had a wonderful life...
A beautiful boy...may he rest gently now.
Good luck with your new rescue...and thank you for rescuing.
Thanks for the support and comments.
We picked Raven up on Saturday from Rescue Me in Utica NY. She is the sweetest 8 or 9 year old and recovering from some minor surgery. Affectionate, calm, good with children/dogs/cats and loves the water. We are bonding and she appears to be different from that snot-nosed, extremely confident and adventurous Dugan. She hasn't replaced him but has a place in our hearts.
Wrecks, the Chocolate Lab is my daughters and I "stole" him whenever I could.
Raven looks like a very sweet pup, she looks like my Cracker that I lost 6 years AGO - I love her.
That you so much for rescuing her and giving her a wonderful life in her remaining years. Crying tears of joy for both of you!
I am sorry for your loss of Dugan. So happy though that you have opened your heart and home to love again, Raven is a beautiful girl. Congratulations to both of you.
