Back in the day, I adoped a yellow lab named Merlin. I got him at 5 weeks old (his mom had gotten hit by a car and died so the puppies were let go early) and he was my best friend.
He lived until 7 when he got lymphoma and we had to put him down. I just found these pics of me and him, wasn't he sooooooo cute???
He made me the dog lover I am today...he was so dear to me. He was severely dog aggressive though (but he wasn't a pitbull...so thats ok right?!?! lol)
