Our two daughters are definitely his best buddies. Cooper's favorite game is "Cooper Tag". The girls run around the yard calling him and he happily chases after them. They all have a blast.
When he's not playing with us he enjoys basking in the sun, trying to steal one of the girls' stuffed animals or chewing on one of his bones. And he still hasn't given up hope that our 9 pound cat will someday become his playmate! I mean, what's not to love?
We lost our last Lab, Millie, last fall. Her death left quite a void in our lives. Cooper has brought us so much happiness. It's hard not to smile when he rolls over to show his belly with what looks like a big goofy grin on his face!
Thanks, LOLIN, for allowing us to adopt Cooper! He is so deserving of his new life. We love him!

We were foster failures.
But we can't imagine life without Bentley. He immediately got obedience training & settled into a routine with us. He is full of energy & goes to the dog park or on a jog with us every day. He has never met a stranger, he sometimes thinks he is a lap dog, & he now weighs almost 80 lbs! He's such a smart boy, never misses a beat, & gets compliments on how good looking he is everywhere he goes. He likes to be the center of attention!
We know Bentley would have gone to a great home, but we are so happy to have him in our home. Thank you Love of Labs!

We where approved to adopt, and set up a appointment to travel to Indiana to see the puppies. My husband and I picked out a yellow female, her name was Daisy Mae. A sign she was meant to be ours, I had had a Basset Hound named Daisy Mae for 16 years! We renamed her Zoey, and had to wait a few more weeks to get her after she was spayed.
Zoey will be a 1 year old on May 11th. She is a 66 pound lovebug, who thinks she is a lap dog like her 3 fur siblings, LuLu, Auggie, and Oscar. She has been to obeidence school, and passed. She loves playing ball with Oscar, they can play for hours, before getting tuckered out! She also loves playing with our son Christopher, going on walks, and car rides. She still loves to chew holes in socks, blankets, and dog beds, and if there is a newspaper laying around she will shred it to pieces in a matter of seconds!
Since adopting Zoey, my husband and I have started to help with transporting for different Rescues. So far we have helped four Labs on their journey to their new homes. We hope to help Lolin when a transport is needed through Central Illinois. Thank you to all the Lolin volunteers for all your hard work, and dedication! We love Zoey!
Jennifer, Charles, Christopher, LuLu, Auggie, Oscar, and Zoey

Again, thank your Love of Labs for the opportunity to adopt Maverick. He is wonderful! We are very excited for him to graduate from his obedience class Monday night! He is such a good boy!

She offers headbutts when she doesn't feel she's getting enough attention. She also has a unique ability to make sounds similar to Chubaca from Star Wars. It's rather amusing. Lucy is the first Lab I've had who is truly a lap dog. Nothing like 60 lbs of love on top of you.
We've already been through a lot of fun together and I know Lucy is happy in her forever home!! She frustrates me regularly but I wouldn't trade her for the world. Lucy is the love of my life and we will be together for as long as she will have me. Some have dogs where you're in charge and they are part of your life. With Lucy she's in charge and I'm part of her life. But with Lucy I wouldn't have it any other way. Well occasionally when I want to sleep in. I love you my Lucy and thank Sherry, caring for my little lady until she could come home. It would have been nice if you had warned me how crazy she is...ha ha

Georgie continues to do a most awesome job in training his people. Georgie chose us to be his family in May 2010 and we are now complete. The after and the before photographs below tells it all. Please fosters know that you are fairy godparents to those of us who benefit from your love and care! Thank you Foster Godmother Linda Acup who saved Georgie! Georgie still has not gotten that the memo that he is missing his right back leg - yup a tripod who is an experienced athlete and hurdles fences. Georgie is indeed senior but he prefers experienced! Gotta love LOLIN! Melissa, Sean and Georgie
