I bought this book two weeks after I got my first lab - it made me laugh and cry all at the same time. The photographs are wonderful and the story line from puppyhood to mature adult is beautifully written. My lab is almost two years old now and every time I read the book again I learn more about what he'll be doing next and it still makes me cry when I get to the final chapter. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has owned, currently owns or is considering buying a lab. Great book!
