I'm sorry for your loss -- it's always sad to lose a dog. And it never gets any easier.
I know you probably want a lab again, but there are lots of older dogs available at Max's Pet Connection.
That's where I adopted my Baxter. They are on the sidewalk at Petsmart on Saturday mornings.

We were only allowed to have her because she did not have all her teeth and would not have been able to be bred in Europe because she was not perfect. Well, she was perfect enough for us and we miss her every day. We have tried to find an English female lab that is past her breeding years, but older dogs are highly prized and unless you know someone who knows someone they are almost impossible to find. My sons still live in NH and there are some great English Labs being bred there, but I don't want a puppy.

Again, thanks for your information.
So sorry for your loss I truly know how you feel. We moved here in 2012 with 3 Polish Lowland Sheepdogs. Unfortunately, Zorro passed less then 2 years after we moved. I understood I could not get another dog because we still had 2. We made an agreement no more dogs and no way ever a puppy. Zeta crossed the bridge last November and we were down to Zuni. It did not take 2 weeks I wanted a dog. My husband agreed as long as it was not a puppy. Short story Ziggy Stardust, an Irish Red Pied Brindle joined our family in December at 3 months old!
I still have a lot of connections in the dog world. Do you want me to put out feelers for an adult English Lab?

I would really appreciate you doing that for us but it has to be a female. Although if you found a male dog desperate for a home we probably would love it just as much as a female. As to age .... if you can do it we would prefer no younger than four, but we have no problems with a much older dog.

I have just remembered something. Several years ago I was in the Walmart parking lot off 466 when a big pick up pulled in with two of the best English Labs I have ever seen in the bed of the truck. The driver was a very pleasant man who told me he lived in Quail Hollow and the dogs were from a Lab Breeder in Williston. I have done everything to find this breeder but have had no luck, would you happen to know of this person?

I do not know that breeder. I just posted on FB what you are looking for. Hopefully, I will receive some responses.

Hi Madelaine,
I have been contacted by a well known Lab breeder who came to my Camp. She lives in VA and would like to know howfar you would be willing to travel to pickup the right dog.

Madelaine, I can only speak for myself, but I'd love to know if you got a lab.
