Easter 2000 when DD was Sophomore in college she brought home a precious black lab puppy. She kept him at college, spent summers and holidays with us. Fall of 2001 he came home with us when we went to visit her. He stuck by my side, was my shadow. He was my shadow as a puppy so I would protect him from our elderly Black Lab Beau who liked to put Legend in his place.
When Beau suddenly became worse around Christmas 2000 Legend would take him treats and lay beside him. When Beau became paralyzed from a spur on Dec. 23 and I had to take him to the vet to be sent to heaven Legend would come and comforted me. On July 31 I had to make the awful decision to send Legend to join Beau. Legend will always be in my heart as all of the other dogs and cats who I have had as my best friend. Until we all meet at the rainbow bridge...
