My faithful friend. Since I retired he has hardly ever left my side. If I move from one room to another or go outside he follows me.

Oh... how lovely. I thought that he was your shadow when I read the title.. How about when you go shopping? Please don't leave him outside, the dog I saw yesterday broke my heart...There is a black labrador in the town where I live, she always 'Woof's when her owner goes to the shop, I try to talk to her, but her whole mind is always the lady in the shop..You have a wonderful friend..Smile

shadow? thought his name was white cloudSmile
well done, I know how difficult it is to get black fur and golden eyes right, you have made him look shiny but not tooo shiny.

Why do labs always look sad when they are happy and content? My Penny does too. She only laughs when she sees our son Nick and I mean laughs...her mouth curls into a smile Smile and she rolls on to her back. Probably because he was her No. 1 before he left home.
You have a beautiful friend.
