In Memory Of Midnight (Newfoundland/Lab Mix)

Midnight passed away when he was 10. He was a Newfoundland/Lab mix. We adopted him from the animal shelter on Valentines Day, 2003 when he was 2 years old. Midnight loved to chase balls and bring them back only to steal them when you tried to grab the ball to throw it again. Chewing on the balls was even more fun. He also loved to swim, go on walks, and just be with his family.

Midnight was an amazing dog. If I could describe him in one word it would be steadfast. He was solid in size, personality and devotion to his family. Every kid wanted to hug him where ever we went. He'd even let the kids climb all over him without complaint when they were young. He'd just huff and roll on his side when he was tired of them. He loved the kids and would "protect" them by standing between them and Grandma when they'd cry because she was leaving. He would be friendly but not let her near them until we said it was OK.

He was smart and learned to do many tricks - his favorite was to shake hands. He also knew that back-off meant take exactly three steps back (handy with such a large dog). He meant so much to us and really filled our lives with love. We were heartbroken when we had to put him to sleep.

My condolences to you and your family. Sounds like Midnight was the perfect dog, much like one I had as a child who was a pure bread black lab. I rencently lost my cat off 11 years, it's never easy to lose a friend. Midnight will always be in the heart of everyone he touched.

I know "how" it feels to loose a Puppy. I call them all Puppies. I have Seven All indoor Puppies. Bless your "Heart".

I know what your going to say once I say this. But get another one ast. Your not replacing him. You are healing your "heart".

The one Newfoundland and small number of Labs I've met were all wonderful beasties. And believe me, I know from experience how it grieves us to say goodbye. Even after several years, I still miss the American Pitbull hubby had when we began dating. You're in my prayers, friend. Take care.

My deepest, heartfelt condolences to you and your family :(. I've had so many doggies that I've had to put to sleep throughout my life. The last one in Dec. of 2010. It is a big hurt.

God bless you all.
