Sorry for your loss, happy for your new pup.
I went through this last year with my lab Waylon, and soon again with my 16 year old lab cross Lucy.
Good luck with the new pup, dogs are awesome. Just got a new Schnauser pup with my GF too, unconditional love and attention, better than the GF most of the time (lol,,,kind of,lol).
Great looking pup!
