    If there is a place in heaven for Labrador retrievers (and I trust there is or I won't go) it'll have to have a brook right smack in the middle - a brook with little thin shoals for wading and splashing; a brook with deep, still pools where they can throw themselves headlong from the bank; a brook with lots of small sticks floating that can be retrieved back to shore where they belong; a brook with muskrats and muskrat holes; a brook with green herons and wood ducks; a brook that is never twice the same with surprises that run and swim and fly; a brook that is cold enough to make the man with the dog run like the devil away from his shaking; a brook with a fine spot to get muddy and a sunny spot or two to get dry.

    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
    (John Dewey)

    Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.

    HPL, so sorry. Each one takes a piece of our hearts each time. Fortunately the next one adds more back than is taken.
    Puppy breath to you.

    HPL, thinking of you. He was a very handsome dog, and sorry he couldn't be here longer. He was fortunate to have been your dog as it is obvious how much you loved him.

    Any man with money to make the purchase may become a dog's owner. But no man --spend he ever so much coin and food and tact in the effort-- may become a dog's Master without consent of the dog. Do you get the difference? And he whom a dog once unreservedly accepts as Master is forever that dog's God.

    Read Albert Payson Terhune as a child and it helped create a lifelong love affair and I think it’s especially germane to this sport.
