My Mac(s): 3 Macs, two 27 inchers running Yosemite 10.10.5, and one 24 inch 10.6.8.



Took Lilly in for a checkup and got a phone call from her vet right away.
The tech said 2, beautiful Black Labs, brothers/litter-mates who are 9 years old, were desperately looking for a new home.
Was a very elderly couple who ran into problems and had to move from California to Boston and stay with their son, in an apartment with a no dog rule.
So I jumped into the car and zipped right over there, took a lot of pictures, met the owners who were obviously very sad.
But got home, put the best picture on our local village Facebook page and got an immediate response from some friends of my husband. Their Chocolate Lab had passed away last year and they didn't want to get a puppy. So I swapped phone numbers for them, they got together Sunday morning, and they fell in love with them. They will take the dogs the first of March. And another good thing is that they live about 1/4 mile from us and within sight of the beach.
Here is a picture of them,

It's great to get some good news thumbup.gif

Many years ago we had a lab x something-or-other which we got from rescue kennels. She was about five years old but settled in very quickly. And very quickly accepted that the 12yo toy poodle was the leader of their pack biggrin.gif

Thank you! Ive been asked many times to work at our local shelter, where we adopted Muffin years ago. But I know we would have a house full of dogs, if I accepted. And one dog is enuf at our age.
