Lessons from the Dog

I had to put Floyd the newest member of the Newcomb family down this week. Floyd joined us from Quebec last fall and was a black lab with a ton of personality and spirit.

So, while he was only with us a short seven months I learned a lot:

  • Play hard even when your lungs are filled with cancer as there is always time for a nap after
  • You are never too sick to make new friends
  • Positive attitude goes a long way towards one’s quality of life
  • There is always time for belly rubs and nuzzles
  • Your friends will show up to walk around the block with you even on bitterly cold New England days
  • Life is better when you get dirty
  • Love is unconditional
