“On February 13, 2004, my husband and I got our sweet chocolate lab from Chip’s Labs. He was born to My Baby Chip Chip, and My Baby Dakota on November 22, 2003.  He was the sweetest and best thing that could have happened to two newlyweds, living far from home.  I never believed in love at first sight until I saw Charlie.

He was my best friend for the next 12 years, always sweet, beautiful, and gentle.  Always the first one to greet me in the morning or when I came home, always there when I was sad, or scared.  Always waiting for one of us to turn our back, so that he could steal our food, always up for a car ride, or a long nap.  He was there when we brought home our three children, and then he became their best friend and stealer of their food too.

Charlie took his last sleep on Sunday, March 13, 2016.  I’m not really sure why I am writing this email, I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to start our family with such a sweet boy.  Thank you for placing the ad in the paper that I just happened to see. Please know how much one of your dogs was loved, and what an impact he had on our life, we will miss him everyday.”
