Chloe with a new bone!My husband and I have two lovely, and very silly, labs.  We consider them our furry children and take good care of them.  They are getting old and slowing down,  yet they still display all the lovely attributes dogs seem to have.  I was sent this list of  life lessons because I am a dog owner, however, they are valid for us all.  I hope at least one of these, help you in your life.  Cheers and enjoy life!
