I adopted my lab-mix, Sarah 11 years ago, and my mixed breed dog, Maya a few months after that. They were best friends. And then, in May 2012 Maya died suddenly. Her death left us all terribly sad, Sarah included. And when I thought of the best thing I could to to honor Maya's life I thought that giving another dog a happy home was the best way to do that. We knew we would never have another Maya, but we set out to find another dog who we could love just like we loved Maya.
When Ruby came to the Orange County Sheriff's Office she was in great condition, due to the great care provied by her foster parent. Before being taken in by Lab Rescue she wasn't as lucky. Ruby was one day away from being put down and had a bad skin infection and had just dropped a litter of pups. To say it was hard to see picture of her in this state is an understatement.
We have 2 young children on the Autism spectrum, and had promised them a dog when our youngest turned 3, which came in March. We were hoping to find a dog that was calm, and big enough to handle them.
It has been 10 years since we adopted Sunshine from Lab Rescue of Florida. Sunshine was roughly one years old and at the pound. After a heartworm check, being spayed, and a few days, actually, from the first call, we interviewed and were able to bring Sunshine home.
I just wanted to let lab rescue know of the passing of Kirby.
Kirby was at a Tampa adoption day and I immediatly bonded ,he has been by my side ever since and as most people know that is a bond that will live forever even though he is not here .
