Well, I had Dougie and Bruno for five days. Both brilliant dogs and gave you the best welcome every time you walked in the room.
Taking them both for a walk was hard work, not in the sense that they played up, but just that I felt like I would have arms like Popeye by the the end of the week.
I was sad to see Dougie go, but it was nice to still have Bruno albeit only for a couple more days.
I dropped him off at his home before dashing to the Blue Cross to cover. He was so pleased to see his family, he could barely contain himself.
I now have a real soft spot for black labs and would seriously consider one for myself if I ever got a dog.
