    Take a minute and wish Brad well with his new female Lab puppy he
    took possession of this weekend.

    This has been a little bit of a challenge for him. His long time female Lab, "Ashley" had to be put down last year and Brad loved her dearly.
    Getting another Lab has been something he has wanted to do, but
    with some trepidation.

    I want to see a picture! Congrats Brad!

    Hi Brad,

    Congratulations on your new puppy! Speaking as a guy who has had a lifetime of dogs - I think making a place in your home for a new puppy after the passing of a loved pet, is the best thing you could do - both for yourself and for your beloved pet's memory! I hope the new puppy gives you many years of joy, laughs and happiness.

    Dogs are great pets and friends, Labs especially. She will come to read your emotions and give you just the type of attention you need at that moment. I hope you have many years of fun and love with your new puppy

    Thank you all for the good wishes! My Golden is so cute. After having my last one for 13 years, it was so hard to have her put down. She was my baby!!!

    Tessa is a little darker than Ashley but just as cute!!! She has needle teeth and toe-nails. She is so cute.

    Thank you all for your well wishes, I know she will never take Ashlets place but she is so dam cute.

    Congrats and good luck. Puppies are so much work -- particularly after you've had a well trained mature dog, so I'd also definitely have some trepidation.

    But good luck with her, and while she won't replace the lost pet, they are their own individuals who come with their own characters and soon you don't know how you lived without them.
