"If there is a place in heaven for Labrador Retrievers (and I trust there is or I won't go) it'll have to have a brook right smack in the middle - a brook with little thin shoals for wading and splashing; a brook with deep, still pools where they can throw themselves headlong from the bank; a brook with lots of small sticks floating that can be retrieved back to shore where they belong; a brook with muskrats and muskrat holes; a brook with green herons and wood ducks; a brook that is never twice the same with surprises that run and swim and fly; a brook that is cold enough to make the man with the dog run like the devil away from his shaking; a brook with a fine spot to get muddy and a sunny spot or two to get dry." - Gene HIll

That was beautiful. And what a wonderful place to think that our labs may end up there one day.
Thanks for contributing.

Gene Hill can surely put into words what it feels like to know a Labrador Retriever. Sounds like a great place to spend eternity...

What a lovely poem. It describes the place that appeared in your video, don't you think?
