Arrival Story:
Daddy was working on a house in Wilmette Il. And this baby black Labrador kept running around. Her name was Scout (from To Kill A Mockingbird) Daddy asked if there were any more for sale and there were,...He drove 2 hours to where my brothers and sisters were and he picked me,....Ohhhhhhhhh I had a private lake in my back yard and didn’t know that as we were driving off that I never would see that lake again,. But anyway on the way home I peed all over mommy and threw up (first car ride,...I came home to an older dog who became my dog mommy and we now had a big lake to swim in ,..Lake Michigan and boy did we have fun I looked like a black pearl so my daddy named me Pearl,...we became regulars at the beach and around Chicago,.GURL and PEARL,...well the sad day came when Gurl started having seizures here and there,. It finally got to where we were at the beach one day and Gurl fell over again,...daddy took her home and made her comfortable,...well after daddy decided he wanted her to stay with us we had a few more months of fun and ,...then,.......Ohhhhhhhhh sob. Gurl was laying at the foot of the bed and decided it was time in her sleep and while we all slept she left for the bridge. We all were very sad. Any way Daddy wanted to capture her spirit so he found a yellow Lab puppy the next day now I was a mommy,...and I remembered how it was when I was brought home. I’ve been good to Maggie and she is 6 years old now, I'm 11 years old and everything was great Maggie and Me,....and what’s daddy do ? He brings home a 6week old Chocolate Labrador, Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I’m too old for this, this dog named Molly was a terror chewing up the world, but she is 2 now and is finally working out. Whew but she is always giving Maggie hell, Maggie is good about it though. Molly doesn't mess with me the way she does Maggie. I don’t put up with it. I'm getting a little achy now...gotta conserve my hips and energy. But life is good, as I know it.
