  1. That was a glorious day for you both! It truly is amazing at how much joy & love a dog can bring to a home. Looking at these pictures brings tears because Melvin reminds me so much of Harley, my chocolate lab, who we lost to lymphoma, just a couple of months ago. I said “no more big dogs” after losing him, but seeing Melvin makes me think twice about that decision. There’s nothing like hugging a big dog! Here’s to many more wonderful years with each other!

    • Aw, Beth — I’m sorry about Harley. I wrote a post some time back, I can find it for you if you want about getting Melvin for all the wrong and right reasons. My previous lab, Max, was short on time for this world and I knew if he left me before i had another dog that I’d delay. So while I was sure about Melvin, there was a fire that led me to him. Melvin and Max only had two months together but without Melvin, that grief would have been unbearable. I know what you’re saying about ‘another big dog’, it can feel impossible to consider. Melvin was one of the best decision I ever made!
