I've been there jamz,
I bought my second Lab when my daughter was about 10. Great dog, We lost her, Millie, a couple years ago, she died in my daughters arms in the back yard.. Millie was a great dog but never matched up to Casey, my first. It didn't really bother me though, loved her just as much...
I want another really bad, every time a nice litter comes up, I go crazy trying to make up my mind.
I'm 62, live alone and really think another Lab would be a great partner,
I think you should go for it, once a Lab guy, always a Lab guy.
