All in the Family
Hannah Clarice Lucy


Labrador Retriever

Diego was our perfect old man. He loved to go exploring and would eat anything that closely resembled food. You could always find him at your heels, or not far behind...unless he found an interesting smell to follow. He lived a good 14/15 years we think. I got him at around 7/8 years old and had him since. I miss my old boy greeting me at the door (Hannah our GSD - greets when she is ready). He had a passion for tennis balls but really wasnt into other toys at his old age. Diego got really sick the last week of January and at the recommendation of our vet, a lot of personal thought and with great hesitation, we put him to sleep. He went very peacefully the morning of January 30th. See you soon my old buddy boy!

The same thing happened to my labby, too! He looks a lot like your Diego. I'm sure you miss him, I really miss my Mojo. They are great friends and leave a nice paw pring in your heart.
Sorry you lost your special friend!! I hope your loving memories of beautiful Diego brings you comfort until ya'll meet again!! It is said that when a pet dies it takes a piece of their owner's heart with them...this piece is returned to the owner when they meet again! Take care!!

Thanks everyone. A year later and I still miss my buddy boy. However....we acutally just got another Blk Lab...oddly she has so many of Diego's little idiosyncrasies - it is actually kind of spooky - I know some of them are just lab traits but some are Diego all his own. She will have her own page here shortly.

High 5 to black labs! My German, unfortunately died, before I got him, but he's in good company as well. :)
