Central Indiana Lab Rescue & Adoption

Lab Puppy

Tator

We sadly said goodbye to our Tator on November 8. We adopted him from CILRA and he stole our hearts! Here is the tribute we posted on Facebook about our boy:
“Goodbye sweet Tator!😢 10 things we loved about you:
1. Tator, birds fought over the soft fur you shed ( yes, the same fur we picked off our clothes and out of our coffee😉);
2. Your “lab lean” was priceless;
3. You never complained about the heel of the bread ( truth be told, you’d eat the whole loaf if it was within your reach on the counter😳);
4. You were a wonderful companion on the boat and at the Michigan lakehouse ;
5. Walking with you was the best- you walked when we did, you stopped when we stopped and you didn’t pull on the leash;
6. You obediently followed commands- sit, stay, free! even when the grandchildren wanted you to give their stuffed animals a ride;
7. Your enormous Lab/Pyrenees paws could dig to China! If only you dug where new plants were going to go;
8. You alerted us to unsuspecting guests who knocked on our door or rang the doorbell (even though you were sometimes fooled by doorbell sounds on tv🤣);
9. You always finished your vegetables- sweet potatoes, squash without a single complaint;
10. Your love and devotion to us ( knocking over pet gates to sleep on the floor next to the bed, even when cancer had crippled your back legs) was matched by our LOVE for you! 💕
