It's been 4 years since we adopted breeder release rescue Lorelei Lab. She was given up when she quit having puppies and Chicagoland Lab Rescue made sure they coordinated with everyone to get her a good home. She'd had good medical care and nutrition but in looking at the photos, at age 11 now, she's happier and healthier, living a good life. She rides the doggie escalator my engineer husband built to get into the Bungalow due to bad hips but otherwise loves her yellow ball just as much.
Adopting her was one of the best things we can do, and though it doesn't take away our missing Barkley and Abby Lab - she has healed our hearts.
