Hi my name is Lerato,I’m 15 years old and I got my first labrador last October on the 19th to be exact,I’ve never spent a night away from my lab,Milkshake,seems like a lost cuddle whenever I think about leaving him….he recently turned 5 months and is growing super well!!!He is a gentle giant,and he’s a white lab with brown tipped ears,who enjoys swimming,jogging and stealing treats right from the box!!I love him so much that I talk about him 12 hours out of the day..I fear this may be too long,so I’m gonna stop.#labs4life#
Start talking with all the pet pros in your area about your desire for a Labrador. That includes vets, dog walkers, and groomers. When someone has to make the tough decision to give up a dog, that person will often ask her own trusted network for recommendations.
Fortunately for folks afraid of canines, Labrador retriever apparel researchers are growing a machine to do the sniffing. The canines are costly to coach, and might solely scent a sure variety of samples a day, so automating the method can be best. An digital nostril is at the moment in manufacturing to chop out the price of canine coaching.

The world’s best dog can’t be defined by a breed; it is any dog that, when you come home tired and flop onto the couch, will walk backwards and forwards under you so that your overhanging hand can stroke it without you even moving a muscle.

Our 16 year old black lab has dwindled from 65-70 lbs down to barely 30lbs and has switched to grazing instead of gobbling his bowl. His eyes and ears are overly productive requiring cleaning every 2 days. I know it’s irritating him because he shakes his head a lot, however because of his decreased muscles he falls down when he shakes his head, as well as randomly when walking. He can’t fetch ball anymore without falling. He’s blind in one eye, and definitely going deaf. His gas smells of death, his breath horrible. He holds his bm until he has an accident inside. All this and his mind is still that of a pup. He’s been my friend for 12 years and I think we are saying goodbye this week.
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.

In the United States, the breed gained wider recognition following a 1928 American Kennel Gazette article, “Meet the Labrador Retriever”. Before this time, the AKC had only registered 23 Labradors in the country, in part because US and UK hunting styles had different requirements. Labradors acquired popularity as hunting dogs during the 1920s and especially after World War II, as they gained recognition as combining some of the best traits of the two favourite United States breeds as both game finders and water dogs.
Personally I think Labradors in general are amazing dogs! Personally I’ve had a black lab cross (which was rescued) we had her for 14 years, an amazing dog well behaved and obedient an absolute pleasure to have her!! Me and my husband got a Labrador puppy (black), (please note we think he is from a puppy farm) he is the most lovely dog you could meet! However if you are a stranger he will go ‘mad’ but will do nothing except bark!!! I love my baby so much, we have 2 very young children and he is so amazing with them, my kids have literally ridden him, pulled his ears, you name it they’ve done it! I woke up today and he had a necklace on, my daughter had been ‘talking’ to him and apparently he wanted it on! He also wanted to watch the iPad haha! Labrador’s WHATEVER colour is irrelevant it really is the upbringing of the dog! Xx
I have had three Labradors in my life. Two of them are currently at my feet, willing me to drop a piece of my Hobnob biscuit. They are doing that Labrador thing where they stare at you unblinkingly, dribbling in Pavlovian anticipation. Hunger, as any owner quickly discovers, is the key to the Labrador’s magnificence.
Generally, Labrador retrievers are a healthy breed. Typical issues can include hip and knee dysplasia, and eye problems, which are all unfortunately common in most dog breeds as they age. You can expect to share 10-12 wonderful years with your Lab.

IMPECCABLE MANNERS. My girl has the manners of a Victorian gentleman. Some have developed with training but some seem to have been innate; she has never pushed on the stairs, rarely at the door. She waits to have her feet wiped when we come in. She’ll flirt with passers by but she waits for an invitation to say hello. When treats are being given out other dogs snatch and push but she waits patiently at the back with that sweet smile on her face. She has never tried to steal from my plate and won’t steal another dog’s ball. Once she jumped on the sofa to fuss my now ex and when I joked where was I going to sit she actually scooched over to make room!

Some Labs like to get to know new people before becoming their friend. So as your dog grows up, be sure to take him lots of places. Socializing your pup from an early age will help him become comfortable wherever he goes.
The modern Labrador Retriever is an easy-going, easy-to-train dog who comes in three colors: black, yellow and chocolate. He also comes in three different body types, depending on his background and purpose.
Labradors abilities as sniffer dogs, guide dogs and assistance dogs attest to their high level of intelligence and ease of training. They are very food motivated and love to play, so to them training is a great game and something they love to do.
Labrador colouration is controlled by multiple genes. It is possible for recessive genes to re-emerge in later generations. Also, there can sometimes be unexpected pigmentation effects to different parts of the body. Pigmentation effects appear in regard to yellow Labradors, and sometimes chocolate, and hence the majority of this section covers pigmentation within the yellow Labrador. The most common places where pigmentation is visible are the nose, lips, gums, feet, tail, and the rims of the eyes, which may be black, brown, light yellow-brown (“liver”, caused by having two genes for chocolate), or several other colours. A Labrador can carry genes for a different colour, for example a black Labrador can carry recessive chocolate and yellow genes, and a yellow Labrador can carry recessive genes for the other two colours. DNA testing can reveal some aspects of these. Less common pigmentations (other than pink) are a fault, not a disqualification, and hence such dogs are still permitted to be shown.
Art prints, giclee prints and canvas prints from an original painting by Kevin Daniel. Kevin Daniel depicts mainly remote, undisturbed scenes of bears, deer and wolves as though viewed by a fellow creature. Daniel grew up in Minnesota, first painting portraits, then devoting himself to realistic depictions of the varieties and complexities of the wildlife that shaped his childhood. Inspired by Renoir, Rembrandt and Monet, Daniel strives to impart his works with panoramic scenery, meticulous detail and expert use of color. Daniel has amassed many honors, including Minnesota Wildlife Heritage Foundation Artist of the Year and induction into the U.S. Art Hall of Fame.
