One year ago I finally convinced DH that Maya needed a "brother" THANK YOU PETFINDER! He was a skinny boy, but his eyes got me. HAPPY GOTCHA DAY COLBY!

His Petfinder Picture then, Colby now, and playing with sister Maya.

CONGRATS! And thanks for adopting :thumbs up isn't it amazing, the difference a year can make? I love seeing before and after pics!! :lovestruck:

He only weighed 49 lbs when we brought him home, he's now a chubby 75. I was amazed how quickly he took to us, he was Maya's best buddy within a day or two, and about a week at home, he quietly snuck onto the couch while I was napping, and fell asleep next to me. At that moment I knew I was his "mommy". He is such a cuddlebug. We were definately blessed.

I actually got my two babies to sit for a picture! (Maya's eyes are drippy right now, had to start eye drops yesterday, its allergy season again:yell:)

aww poor Maya, I can sympathize, I am an allergy sufferer myself! I love the way she's sitting, she looks so laid back! :laughing:

Now is the time to start bugging the hubby for a chocolate to round out the pack...:laughing: If only our house wasn't so small...I keep leaving "bookmarks" on his computer of choc labs on petfinder. I don't think he'll fall for it, he says our bed is too small for 3 labs, and he's not moving to the couch to sleep. I could always trade HIM in for a dwarf hubby :D

Kahne9, congrats!
He's a lucky boy to have found his perfect home.

We have a small house and we've got 8. :o Just tell hubby that labs come in sets of 3 and without the chocolab, they'll feel incomplete. :D You'll just need to get a bigger bed! :laughing:

Those pictures of him, from when you got him to now are like night and day. He was so thin and his coat dull, and now look at him! He's a handsome boy!

I hope Maya's eyes get better soon.:fingerscr

Colby looks so happy and obviously likes the camera :D
