    Default Dog of the day: Labrador

    My favourite breed today!

    Labrador Retrievers are sporting dogs.
    They were originally bred to retrieve birds, like pheasants.
    With Labs helping them, people long ago could find food to eat.

    These days Labs can work as assistance dogs for people
    with disabilities, as search and rescue dogs,
    as drug detection dogs with the police, and more.
    They are good companions and sensitive therapy dogs.They enjoy fun activities like flyball and agility.

    Labrador Retrievers can grow up to 24 inches tall and weigh between 55-80 pounds. Males are bigger than females.
    A Labrador Retriever's tail looks very similar to the tail of an otter! Did you know that?



    Which color is your favorite?
    Labradors come in three colors:
    black,
    yellow (light cream to reddish),
    and chocolate (light to dark brown)

    Labrador Retriever have really cool personalities. They are friendly, loving, and very patient. They are almost never aggressive (mean). Labs love to be with people and they especially like children.


    Labradors need exercise often.

    It would be a good thing to walk your Labrador everyday even if he has a large yard. Labs are energetic and enjoy being active, playing games, and participating in activities like flyball, agility, swimming, tracking, and obedience. They especially enjoy ball and retrieving games like fetch.

    Labradors are easy to train and they are very social. That means they like people and other animals. Labs are happy to hang out with you and do whatever you are doing. They love to play! Spending as much time as you can with your Labrador will make him the happiest dog on earth. A Lab can truly be your best friend.

    Labs are not shy or nervous dogs, which means they are usually not afraid of things. They are usually very good watchdogs and will bark when they hear or see something unusual. When they are not being a watchdog, Labs are friendly, reliable, and trustworthy.

    Know Your Breed
    Labs love to put things in their mouths! They have to be watched very carefully when they are young so they don't eat anything that could be dangerous. They can also eat your mom's dining room table, so keep an eye on your growing puppy! There's one thing that almost all Labs want you to know about them - they love to play fetch. Throw a ball and watch them run!

    Labs have vey good appetites. They will be happy to eat almost anytime, so lots of exercise and regular meals without too many snacks will help keep him from becoming overweight.


    It is important that your Lab start learning his manners when he is young. Spend lots of time with him from an early age so he is comfortable with you. Roll him over, touch his feet, look at his teeth, and brush him gently. This will help him get used to being handled and he will be a better companion when he is older.

    This is one of the last pictures taken of Duke, our lab that passed 2 years ago. I picked him out when I was 10 yrs old and he was just a baby. I will forever love Labs because of Duke!
    P.S. That grey muzzle means he's distinguished, not old! (haha, inside family joke)

    Awwww, she looks like our houseguest the other night! We had a big black lab lost in our neighborhood and it was going to get down to 20 that night, so since his tags were up to date (And his vet and animal control were closed for the night) we had him spend the night. What a little hippo! He and Saki had so much fun and when we found the owner the next morning through the vet she was soooo happy to see him
