3 Labs

Walkies with La La

La La Land ~ a fanciful state or dreamworld ♥

La La Loves her Labs
{she sure does}
This past September marked 10 years of blogging for me!!!
Anyone who has followed me through these years will remember Bentley ~ our first Labrador retriever... and the beginning of a love affair for black Labrador retrievers ♥ And then Ernest, who we adopted when he was 11 years old.  And now, our Archer.
So often we will say how we wished we could have had all 3 together.
Each one had their own distinct personalities {and looks}
Bentley was tall and lean and adored catching a ball at the park.
Ernest was our walker. He loved nothing more than to walk. 
Archer is our Velcro dog... our shadow ... he just wants to be with us.

A scrapbook page all about Ben.
 Sweet Bentley xo
Ernest enjoying the sun and leaves from our Maple tree.
Sweet Ernie xo
and our Archer.
Sweet Archer xo
He is your friend
Your partner
Your defender
Your dog
You are his life
His love
His leader
He will be yours
faithful
and true
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him
to be worthy.

I just love this post with the pictures of your so loved pups. I saw the painting on IG and I thought it spoke volumes. Anyone who rescues a pet is a hero in my eyes. And pets truly can be our best friends. To capture them like this is so endearing, Deb.
