I will email you this, also. Has your friend checked on Craigslist, Petfinder, FidoFinder, to see if someone posted her as lost?

Also, I know there is a Lab Rescue in Illinois that she should contact.
I'm assuming that the friend that found her lives in Illinois.
The AKC Parent Club of the Labrador Retriever
American Kennel Club - Breed Rescue

**If they do take her to a shelter, please tell them to make sure it is a No Kill Shelter.

What a heartwarming Christmas story

I love rescue stories when dogs get wonderful forever homes like Tucker did with Karen and Ken and Tonka.

Merry Christmas Everyone

I was checking email and noticed an update from the GR forum. Fortunately I am still subscribed to this thread. I always love hearing about Tucker and Tonka so I dropped in for the latest. Karen. I hope this message finds you well and that you and the family are enjoying a wonderful holiday. Please keep in touch with Nell and I. We think of Tucker often and love to hear from you.

Nell is still having surgeries and rehabbing old ones to correct injuries from the accident. Although her hips have improved quite a lot but her hands and tailbone still require treatment. We take for granted the gift that is our thumb and what a blessing it is to live each day without disabling pain. One a brighter note, one year ago we decided to adopt a new family member. We never recovered from the heartbreak of parting with Tucker and needed to fill the need for canine companionship. We searched carefully for the right breed and breeder then chose a newfoundland. I have trained Coco to be a therapy dog. She is a devoted and loyal family member who loves us so much. She has done wonders to help my wife through dark days and adores my daughter. She is 13 months old now and I am continuing her training as a service animal. She is very intelligent and so eager to help. Its a perfect job for her. She will soon receieve her CGC and helps Nell by providing balance/support, carrying packages/mail/grocery bags and picking up things that have dropped.

I have guests on the way, cooking and cleaning to do and the only picture I can access quickly are on Nells Facebook page. I cant stand Facebook, so when I have a few free I will post some picture of our beloved Coco

So wonderful to hear from you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Give my love to Nell!!

I emld. you a few times, but didn't hear back.
Just sent you two emails and one has some pictures of Ken, I, Tucker and Tonka. We just adore Tucker and he and Tonka are best buds.
So glad to hear that Nell is doing better, but sad to hear she is still having surgeries. I am very excited that you adopted a Newfie-they are wonderful dogs, and it's so wonderful that Coco is being trained to help your wife and daughter! Please post a pic when you have time!!
