We got Junior in 1994 after my now-husband and I were in a serious car accident. Jeremy was 16. My husband had a yellow lab when he was a little boy, and as the accident left him with permanent brain damage, he was starting over as a little boy again. We knew right away that Junior was the one for us because he was so adorable! He had the biggest paws, tongue and ears that it almost seemed like he would just trip over himself. He was such a joy to watch. He was constantly taking the gloves out of my father-in-law’s pockets, digging in the flower beds for attention, stealing whatever he could get his teeth into, chasing after everyone and getting into everything. Junior grew up with us and we grew up with him. He was 14 1/2 when he died, had diabetes and thyroid problems for many years and lung cancer for the last two and 1/2 years. He was very active until the last two weeks. We are thankful to have had so much time with him and he will always be in our hearts.
