We brought Austin, a beautiful chocolate lab, home when he was 7 weeks old. He could fit in the palm of your hand.

As Austin grew and secured his place in our hearts, I realized what a special friend we had. He was so considerate.

One of his loves was "the ball." Over the past 12 years, I can't count how many soccer balls we went through. Every day there was at least an hour of ball throwing. A fair trade off, for that kept him out of the garden.

We just lost Austin 3 days ago, so it is extremely hard to put all of these heavy feelings into words.

So I leave you dog lovers with a picture of one my best friends.

Brown Dog
by: John

While I was at the park yesterday with my 9 year old, "best dog there ever was" Birdie the Bassett Hound, I met a fellow who was walking his 14 month old Chocolate Lab. I've always loved Labs. His name is Buddy.

We talked for a while as Birdie and Buddy became acquainted and then they went on their way. As they rounded the corner of the little pond Buddy's owner let him off leash so could take a little swim, which he did, to the delight of about 20 little kids learning how to fish.

One day, I'll bet at least two of those kids will have a dog like Buddy, Birdie or your "best dog there ever was" Brown Dog. Check out www.godanddog.org if you aren't familiar with it.

What a wonderful photo of Austin, and how fortunate he was to have someone who loved him so much and cared for him so well. He was a blessed dog and you are a kind soul.

Peace and comfort, Patty
