Remembering our lab Gretchen: May 25, 1995 to Nov. 21, 2008

Last year at this time we lost our beloved lab Gretchen. We are remembering her this weekend.

“We will miss your companionship, your thumping tail, our walks in the woods together, swimming and sailing with you at the lake, and napping next to you in front of the fireplace. You were a fixture at the foot of our bed for more than 13 years, friendly to all, and definitely weren’t a picky eater. You were our first ‘child,’ a ‘counselor’ to us on occasion, and a constant reminder why a dog is a man’s best friend.”

  1. I have experience only with black labs. Where did you come up with a white lab? She looks like a real sweetheart! Labs are great, so loyal and kind. The best for kids. So sorry for your loss, Jeff and family.
