Default I have a story...

I lost my beloved yellow lab, Yogi, a year ago December to lymphoma. I wasn't wanting to get another dog right away -- of course there's no way to replace the loved one you lost. And I still had Eli, my golden. But Eli is no spring chicken and loves having a brother and was so lonely without a brother. So, I started doing some searching. Mind you, I'm in LAB RESCUE and everything. I started sprouting out to look into neighborhood lab rescue groups, too. Just to see who may be out there. That's when I found Petfinders and found out there was a yellow lab at my local humane society... no picture or anything. He had been in there for awhile and was picked up as a stray. Needless to say I called our Lab Rescue coordinator and told her about him. Said I would even foster him. She just said "oh, they never call us because they know a purebred will be placed". So, I didn't think anything about it. UNTIL, I noticed the next day he was no longer listed on the Petfinder site. And I was on the phone with yet another lab rescue group and happened to mention this yellow lab I saw on Petfinder at the humane society. The girl goes "oh my god, he's GOT to get out of there! He's been taken off the adoption floor because he's so stressed out!". Needless to say, that's my Hunter. I got him, I love him. He's a great dog. I was just going to foster, but he's my forever dog and he's in his forever home. So, my first acclimation to Petfinder.com was quite interesting! Talk about a window of opportunity that was opened up to me and Hunter by Him above!!!!
