A story from Gwyn Hackett about My Yellow Lab, Ty
Well I have just finished your book. A friend let me read it after I had to put my 9 year old yellow lab down. Ty was bought for my 3 year old son Ryan. Ryan told us he wanted a dog if he would learn to go to the potty. We we brought Ty home when he was about 6 weeks old and he was part of our Family. Ty like Marley did not like storms. He would jump on my back door until you let him in and then he would go to our bedroom and sit and shake until it was all over. January or 2008 he began to lip on one of his back legs and when I took him to the vet he said it was a bone inffection or CANCER. Well it was a very had time from January to July. But we keep him going until one day we could see the pain in his eyes and on his face. July 21 2008 was the hardest day I had every been throught. We as a family took Ty to the Vet and we all were in tears. Ryan was so hurt but he knew we had done the right thing. To say as much we had to have another dog in our life. We have a friend that shows labs and he happen to have a yellow lab who could not be a show dog because he was too big. She gave us this dog who is 4 years old and a 105 lbs. His name is Tomahawk. Who we just love to death. He did not take Ty's place but I now see the difference in the two and I can see both dogs in your book. I can not wait to see the movie this Dec. I just wanted to share some of my story with you and let you know this was the best book I have ever read.
