His arrival story can be found here. His previous home had called him "Biggie," and the rescue knew him as "Big Georgie". I never called him Biggie, feeling it was just a little insulting to him. I did of course call him Georgie as a nickname. But to me, he was simply George.

It's now two days later and I'm realizing that his loss is going to take some time to get over. Maybe it's because it's coming so close to the loss of my precious Sheba. Maybe it's because he was our first Black Lab. Maybe it's because of his extra-large size and personality that had a way of grabbing your heart. Maybe it's all of those things and many more. But I think that it probably comes down to just one simple thing... He was just simply George and I simply loved him.
