    My lab died about a month ago. I still get tears some time. Bj was a yellow lab that weighed in at about 120 in his prime. He spent 3 years with me on a sail boat and had more sea miles than most of the boat crew members I work with. I know he made a good run of it because he lived to be 13 but I really miss my best friend. At least my dad has his son and the next time we stud him out I will get a new pup but I also know there will be no replacement for the one and only BJ.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you two had a great relationship. It's so awesome that you and your dog werw able to share the sea together.

    If I may offer one word of advice though..

    Just make sure that when you get another dog that your ready to let go of BJ and start building a relationship with a new dog. Only you can know how long that will take. Too many times have I seen an owner try to replace their old dog and end up with problems when the new dog isn't exactly like the old one.

    Good luck to you, I know that this is a hard time for you.

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your good friend. There's nothing like the companionship of a yellow lab. :sadangel:
