You may recall many posts from last year and such when I mentioned Hutch. Hutch was the yellow lab that I helped raise. I met him when he was 3 months old and I was his mommy. He definitely became my child. I firmly believe that dogs have a keen sense when something is wrong. I remember the night everything happened and I had to tell Hutch goodbye. I walked down the hall to where his play area is and he was just sitting there on the couch looking at me. He was as calm as could be and I think he could sense something was not right. I hugged him and held him tight and told him I loved him and to be a good boy. It was heartbreaking to say the least. That dog became part of me.
Reason I am writing this is because I have been bombarded by yellow labs lately. I see them everywhere and it just reminds me of how much I miss sweet Hutch. I always thought I would be a little dog-type person, but after seeing how sweet and loving labs can be, I have been smitten ever since.
I can't wait until I can purchase a yellow lab puppy of my own one day. And I won't have to tell him goodbye!
