If any of you (in the East Tennessee or Knoxville area) are interested, please contact the email listed in this message or let me know and I'll put you in touch with the person who sent this to me. I feel really bad for anyone who is losing a home and is having to give up their family pets.

Thanks for your help spreading the word. Read their story below.

The story...
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------
------------ ----
This family has lost their home and the apartment does not allow dogs.
They are looking for a home for the two Labs. See below.

As many of you know, we are moving in just 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have
still not been able to find a good home for Cookie and Coco .
We're not able to take our beloved doggies with us and I've been
desperately trying to find a home for both of them 'together'. They
were raised together and pine without each other. The Lab rescue have already
said that they would probably separate them, so this is my last resort.

Recently I tried to take Coco out in my car alone and she TOTALLY
refused to even get into the car without Cookie.....! !!! She absolutely
pulled back on her haunches until Cookie was by her side.Both doggies
are in great health, have been spayed and have ID chips implanted under
the skin.

Cookie turned 3 December 10th and Coco will be 3 April 1st. Cookie is
my mellow-yellow, and just loves her tummy rubbed. Coco is adorably
funny and lives for her "ball". She also loves the water..... Cookie
loves lots of attention. Both doggies are loyal and love to walk. They
have been raised with my 3 kids running around all over the place, and
have survived Sammy's constant hugging and love of 'dress-up', so
are fantastic family dogs. This is by far one of the most difficult
decisions I have ever had to make, but under the circumstances I have no

Please, Please forward these pics to all you know and help me find a
great home for these fabulous doggies. They are just adorable and it's
heartbreaking to let them go. In a perfect world, I hope that we could
find someone local so that we can still keep in touch and visit them.
I pray that someone, somewhere can help us keep Cookie and Coco
together, and love them just as much as we do. Thank you all from the
bottom of my heart.

What a sad situation for this family. Losing your homes and your obviously loved pets as well. I hope they find a great home for them together.

Melissa -- I was told that they found a very good, loving home almost immediately after they started "advertising" around. Someone who is a former lab owner/lover had a great place for them...and was thrilled to take them as a "package deal." Sometimes, things do work out in life, right? :-D

Holly I am so glad to hear that the labs got a great home together. I still feel terrible for the family but at least they did't have the added trauma of splitting up the dogs on top of not being able to keep them.
