What can I say. He's 15. That must be 100 in dog years.
On the weekend I read a review of a book that sounds like a must read.
Prince, the hero of Matt Haig's first novel, The Last Family in England, is a black Labrador devoted to protecting his Family from the dangers inherent in the modern world...
Prince has sworn allegiance to the Labrador Pact, which demands that Labradors devote their lives to the happiness, preservation and protection of not just their masters but of all Families everywhere...
The Labrador Pact can be viewed at the author's site....
It is our duty, as Labradors, to be prepared for change at any time. We must realise that it is our presence, and its suggestion that some things will always stay the same, which can help to return humans back to normality.
Let your senses guide you, and you will find that the future is under your nose.
What can I say as he snores away softly... His presence has certainly returned me to normality many times in 15 years. And temporary insanity. All those bouts of boisterous clumsy joy that revive the spirit on darker, blackdog days.
Comments: d day
I've passed this on to an owner of a Black Lab. You've made someone very happy.

Nothing like a Black Lab - except a Yellow one.
(I was once half-thinking of starting a ring - or a least a category on the sidebar- of Labrador bloggers - I kept running into them without looking)
