I was sitting on a train the other day, and it occurred to me that I spend half of my life singing the praises of Labradors. Nothing wrong with that of course but I don’t think I’ve ever stopped to think exactly why I love them so much. Okay, so we all know Labs are the best dogs ever but I decided it was time to make a list. My top 5 reasons for loving Labradors. I had 25 minutes to kill and nothing to read but my train ticket and I’d already read most of that, waiting on the platform for my train.
With the rising costs of fuel and other expenses we are having to limit the distance we travel for our adoptions. Since we bring our dogs to meet their new families we typically will not travel more than 2 hours outside of the Sacramento/Lincoln area and we may add an additional amount (most likely $50.00) to the adoption fee on behalf of the rescue, depending on where you are located. If you haven’t already PLEASE READ THROUGH OUR “ADOPT PAGE” BEFORE YOU CONTACT US (WE RECENTY RAISED OUR ADULT DOG ADOPTION FEE). We are a very small dedicated rescue, we only have two volunteer homes where our dogs live (we prefer to keep it that way). At times there is high demand for our dogs and we try to choose the best fit for our dogs and their adopters.
Zanjeer (“Chain”, or “Shackles”), a detection dog who detected arms and ammunition used in 1993 Mumbai (Bombay) serial explosions. During his service, he helped recover 57 country-made bombs, 175 patrol bombs, 11 military grade armaments, 242 grenades and 600 detonators. His biggest contribution to the police force and the city was the detection of 3,329 kg of RDX. He also helped detect 18 Type 56 rifles and five 9mm pistols.
Newfoundland And Labrador is the umbrella name given to two distinct land masses that make up the vast easternmost province of Canada, but the short-coated Labrador is actually from Newfoundland while the shaggy-haired Newfoundland emerged around the same time in Labrador.

Many of the Labradors we are asked to re-home come to us because of changed family circumstances and most are well cared for and in good health. Some however, are old and infirm and need a good retirement. Others DO HAVE PROBLEMS, but in the right home can blossom into happy dogs again. As Labradors are sociable animals and enjoy company we will not usually home a dog where it will be left alone for more than 3 or 4 hours a day.
One of the reasons the Labrador Retriever is so popular is their excellent temperament. They are friendly, loving and non-aggressive. These outgoing dogs are playful and always eager to please. As someone once said “A Lab never has a bad day”. Due to their easy-going, non-aggressive nature, Labs do not make good guard dogs. They may bark protectively but unlikely to take things further.
12. Labradors always refuse to leave their human’s side. There are countless reports of loyal Labradors who stayed beside their humans when they were sick, injured and even deceased. Remember this when it’s time for your dog to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

You know that friend who’s happiest in the kitchen (most likely with his Lab underfoot)? He’ll be sure to put this sturdy cookie cutter to good use. It can be used for human or dog treats! Of course, if he decides he wants to use it to make you a little thank you gift, all the better.
Inca, who died in 2012 having accompanied me to the island of Taransay when I was a contestant on the BBC’s Castaway programme, my wife’s dog, Maggi, and our new family puppy, Storm, have turned me into a barking crazy labrophile. Kind, loyal, diligent, hardworking, biddable, gentle and faithful: I may be biased, but it’s no surprise that the Labrador is by far the most popular breed in the UK and indeed the world. One estimate puts the population in this country at more than 500,000. Jack Russell terriers, the second favourite, number 376,000.
I have a black lab named Samson Hudson Sanders…or Sam for short. Such a distinguished name for such an amazing boy. I am mid 30’s and have no children….he is my child. When I work a 12 hr day there is nothing better than coming home to that wagging body! I get slobbered on but it is worth it. They are such loving, loyal creatures. He is 4 and a half now but I remember the day I went to the breeder and of all the dogs (9 of them) to choose from, he chose me and it was love at first eye exchange. He has helped me through so many rough times since that day and I will be forever grateful for him being by my side no matter what. I just wish he didn’t weigh more than me now lol
i love my lab jz because i put loads in to her and i get so much back from her pure love she is 12 yr old and stil makes me laugh even tho she got athritis but we manage it with herbal medication love her to much my little angel means the worldto me forever x
There is no global registry of Labradors, nor is there detailed information on numbers of Labradors living in each country. The countries with the five largest numbers of Labrador registrations as of 2005 are: 1: United Kingdom 2: France and United States (approximately equal), 4: Sweden, 5: Finland. Sweden and Finland have far lower populations than the other three countries, suggesting that as of 2005 these two countries have the highest proportion of Labradors per million people: As there is no global registry for Labradors, it is difficult to ascertain whether there is simply a smaller percentage of people formally registering their animals in countries like the United States, or whether the number of animals per capita is actually smaller.
It’s still not clear how particular breeds start to gain ground. Herzog acknowledges that some of the ebb and flow can be driven by cultural artifacts or current events. Every time 101 Dalmatians is re-released, there’s an attendant spike in Dalmatian registrations, even though the breed is very tough to train. In the 1980s, a series of Rottweiler attacks squelched that breed’s popularity, after what had been a meteoric rise. But these effects are temporary and not terribly powerful; Paris Hilton’s affection for her Chihuahua Tinkerbell, for example, has not yet helped—or harmed—the Mexican pooch’s standing.

by September B. Morn, Pam Tanzey (Illustrator). Virtually every aspect of training is covered, including housebreaking and paper training, basic obedience, teaching the animal to obey both verbal commands and hand signals, retrieving, and walking on a leash. Also covered are humane methods of breaking a dog’s bad habits, such as begging, jumping on people, unnecessary barking, and biting or showing other forms of aggressive behavior. The typical Labrador Retriever is relatively easy to train. The author takes readers step-by-step through her method, which emphasizes positive reinforcement. Filled with instructive full-color photos. Paperback, 176 pages.
I used to have a female golden Labrador retreiever called freeway as my beloved soul-mate and true love, I hadn’t had much luck in looking for love until I found her and she was the best thing that ever happened to me in my life, sadly she died almost 11 years ago at the age of 13 & a quarter years.
Labs typically have litters of six to eight puppies. Most breeders like to keep puppies until they are at least eight weeks old. This gives the puppies time to learn how to behave toward other dogs and gives the breeder time to evaluate the puppies’ personalities so she can place each one in just the right home. A bonus is that puppies of this age are more mature and more easily housetrained.

Labrador Retrievers, more commonly known as Labradors or ‘Labs’, love to be with their family. They are high energy dogs that need lots of exercise and training, particularly when they are young. Being one of the most popular breeds Labradors wear many ‘hats’ from working dog to companion animal. As a breed they are fun-loving, even-tempered and ideal for families that consider their dog to be part of every day life.

Coat: The Labrador Retriever’s coat should be short and dense, but not wiry. The coat is water-resistant, so the dog does not get cold when taking to water in the winter. That means that the dog naturally has a slightly dry, oily coat. Acceptable colours are black, yellow, and chocolate.
Nothing any good comes out on top of a popularity contest. My next dog will either be rescued from a shelter – and probably fall outside of the AKC’s elitist scope – or enormously expensive, with the health problems embedded over centuries of in-breeding to boot. I’ve already starting saving for my Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever.
Lucas you must. I have been an owner now for two years and it is simply the best. Already today, I have had the pleasure of attempting to wash my car as Dudley, my chocolate Labrador ran frenetic and crazy circles around the front lawn with the hosepipe dangling from his mouth. Check out my blog page for more such crazy stuff from him too.
It is late August and the heather bloom tinges the grouse moor purple and blue. Three wonderful Black Labs wait eagerly at their masters Land Rover. The two younger dogs pant in excitement and anticipation while their older companion – more experienced, having been there many times before – lies and waits more patiently. Nigel Hemming
We knew with a unique name like Over Under, we would have some questions about what our name has to do with fine clothing and our retriever logo. Well, it all started with a shotgun. Over 100 years ago, a shotgun was introduced that has since become widely known as one of the finest styled sporting firearms to date. Built with only the choicest woods and metals and crafted with smooth lines and detailed hand engraving, the Over Under shotgun became not only a tool for wing-shooting, also a work of art. At Over Under, we have created apparel and accessories that embody the detailed work of the classic firearm that captivated the attention of the sporting world. Our hand selected American cotton provides durability and softness and our guaranteed bridle leather comes from only the highest quality USA steer hides. Much like a fine firearm, our apparel displays eye-catching detail. We guarantee that each article fits and feels as great as it looks. All of our apparel and accessories have been hand chosen and crafted especially for you. Just like the elite Over Under Shotguns from the days of old, we at Over Under Clothing feel that the quality and timelessness of our products make each piece of clothing an exceptional hand crafted work of art.

I love my Lab! She’s the sweetest girl ever, love kids, gentle, patient, kind, sweet as can be. We use to have a black lab before April came along but he was hit by a car, he has a special spot under a big tree in our yard, because of him we instantly fell in love with labs. I tell ya, once you get a lab in your life, no other breed will surpass your desire. They become part of your family and you grow to love them as such. God bless them labs.
