Sam brought some albums in today he was sorting out the garage among the many memories looking through them I found a faded photo of Vicky my first Labrador ( no camera phones then ) She was three when I got her she was given in exchange for some work My Ex had done for a not very nice place
I was shocked when I went for her as she was black and I had only ever seen yellows on the telly she looked lost in among a lot of guarding bred dogs kept there so she came home with me and that day my love for Labradors started and why this rescue eventually happened years later without that Labrador coming into my life who knows ....but she did and here we are ...the year was 1982 .
Memories came flooding back today and tears as well because this was the dog who saw me through some tough times as if she picked up on every emotion happy and sad sometimes dark times .
Life changed soon after she came then there was just me ,Vicky Sam brought some albums in today he was sorting out the garage among the many memories looking through them I found a faded photo of Vicky my first Labrador She was three when I got her she was given in exchange for some work My Ex had done for for a not very nice person.

I credit her with bringing Sam and I together casual chat about dogs etc ,I was so worried as Vicky developed Glaucoma I noticed on this photo you can see her eye had changed Sams Dog had lost her eye in an accident and it took a while but eventually we clicked through our love of dogs we married in 1988.
When Vicky died it was like losing a part of me the grieving period lasted a very long time a very special girl who came into our life and changed it and still changing it for many Labradors over many years and hopefully years to come.

Friend

Love and affection,all the days
wonderful company, always
Not from our side for very long
Was easy to teach her right from wrong
She never asked for very much
Love to cuddle and heaven to touch
Her love was there for the taking
On going to sleep and awaking
A love that was loyal and so true
How did I deserve a freind like you
Who was the freind I held in such awe
She is here in my heart My Labrador.
