he is just like a chocolate coated shamus and watching this very old and wrecked dog waiting in the freezing pond for someone to please throw him another stick, just melts you into a pile of goo. gosh he is sweet. he had THREE field runs today and he keeps going to the back gate hoping for more. he has a large malignant mass on his hip so he is not with us for long but boy are we gonna spoil him rotten for every second that we can! Dex is a doll, he lets me wrap him up in fleecy's and he really likes deb's banana bread too. my kind of guy, i love labs, they live right up until the very last moment.
