To them, there is no such thing as bad food. Some of it, such as coins, flip-flops and letters, just tastes a little different, but in the end it’s all food and they will do anything for it. They’ll even sniff out cancer, like the medical detection dogs. One extraordinary Labrador, Hetty, who was trained by the charity Support Dogs, can even detect the signs of a seizure before her owner, Tony Brown-Griffin, who is registered blind and has intractable epilepsy, suffers one. She recognises the physiological changes that are invisible to the human eye and can give different signals to distinguish the severity of the oncoming attack.
7. She also taught me that although not evey dog likes me but they are never evil, every dog has a heart of gold even if they gaurd it like fort Knox so to speak and don’t openly share it with strangers.

In the 1830s, the 10th Earl of Home and his nephews the 5th Duke of Buccleuch and Lord John Scott, had imported progenitors of the breed from Newfoundland to Europe for use as gundogs. Another early advocate of these Newfoundland dogs, or Labrador Retrievers as they later became known, was the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury who bred them for their expertise in waterfowling.

9. Labradors look to their humans for help. Labradors derive comfort, security and motivation from their humans. Old Labradors deserve just as much love and attention as puppies. Everyone loves puppies, but senior dogs have spent many more years loving and being loyal to their humans.
The dogs’ swimming skills were much talked about. They feature in old stories as near-mythical water dogs, rescuers of sailors’ pots, lines and nets in icy waters and blustery gales, big-hearted, eminently trainable and intelligent.
I’ve owned black and chocolate labs. I’ve had many friends that have had Blacks, Chocolates, and Yellow Labs. I’ve hunted with all 3 of the Labs and some of each color have been better than others. Both have a lot of energy. Both are great family dogs. We’ve also many other breeds as well that were good dogs. To each dog his own. It depends on how you raise and train the dog. A lab is bred to make the owner proud. That is why I believe they are one of the most loyal dogs a human can own. Every dog is a good dog if raised right, but labs have always held a special place in my heart. I have a 13 year old female black lab and he has been an incredible pet. I like to hunt pheasant and unfortunately we could never break her from being gun shy. She was always the fastest dog at the dog park retrieving the dummies and had a drive that would never quite. It broke my heart because she would have been one of the best pheasant dogs ever, but she just didn’t like the sound of a gun that would freeze her up. She is still a wonderful family dog. Since she was gun shy it forced me to get another lab and this time I chose a Male Chocolate Lab. He was the biggest male of the liter and the most aggressive that I could see. I liked the way he would keep his nose to the ground and he definitely picked me. When all the puppies were running around playing he chased me across the yard and basically begged me to take him home. I have 4 kids now (8, 6, 4, 2) and he was by far the best family dog of my two labs. He would lay on the ground and all 4 could jump all over him and he enjoyed every minute of it. They would play fetch for hours with him in the yard. He was a very slow, but effective bird hunter with a great nose. My wife called him my shadow because he was always by my side where ever I would go in the house or the yard. I had to put him down a few days ago because he got liver cancer and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do to put him down. Both are great dogs, but in my case the Chocolate lab had the biggest hold on our families heart. We’ve already picked out the newest member of the family and can’t wait to pick up our new Male Chocolate Lab in a few weeks. You can’t go wrong with any lab as long as you take the time to train and exercise them. They have a lot of energy so make sure you take the time every day with them or do the dog a favor and don’t get one.
Puppy or adult, take your Labrador to your veterinarian soon after adoption. Your veterinarian will be able to spot problems, and will work with you to set up a preventive regimen that will help you avoid many health issues.
Labs love water, whether swimming, wading, boating, fishing or just splashing around. But even a Labrador may sometimes need help from friends. This black and yellow Labrador painting by Amy Reges, OtterTail Lab Art, was inspired by the various Labrador Retriever rescue organizations with which Amy Reges volunteers and donate artwork. 25% of profits will support Labs in need.

I love to make a connection with anyone who views my art by touching a shared sentiment. I hope it makes you smile. Pets bring us so much joy. That spirit is what I mean to share, celebrate and commemorate.
Raw feeding is quite a big topic, and it is both complicated and simple. Complicated because we tend to worry about the nutrients our dogs are getting and we can’t see a list of ingredients on a meaty bone.

So where did the Labrador actually come from? Their origins are complex, combining Portugal, Newfoundland and Britain in their ancestry. They were originally Canadian fishing dogs, whose ancestors were taken on to work on the Portuguese cod off the remote Canadian island of Newfoundland.

Remember that after you’ve taken a new puppy into your home, you have the power to protect him from two of the most common health problems: obesity (which makes joint problems even worse) and eating inappropriate objects. Keeping a Lab at an appropriate weight has been proven to add two additional years of life, and close supervision of what he’s chewing on can save you big bucks at the veterinary hospital. Make the most of your preventive abilities to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

I love my ellie so much. I’ve had her since she was a puppy and is now 14 years old. She has been my rock over the years I can always rely on her to make me smile and cheer me up when I’m feeling down. She just knows when something is wrong and within a minute makes you happy again. Ellie is my best friend she’s like a sister to me and a mum as I am unfortunate to not have contact with my mum. Ellie is a good listener, and she loves to give you sloppy kisses and follow you around the house. With out fail every morning she’s waiting at the bottom of the stairs to greet me she tries to climb the stairs to get close to you and ten as soon as I’m near her she jumps backgrounds onto her back legs I always say ellie be careful your not a puppy anymore you should be careful and taking it easy at your age haha. We have so many good memories and I make sure I take as many pictures and videos of her as possible like her opening her present on her 14th birthday and her playing outside in the sunshine. I could go on forever writing about my dog Ellie what a great breed labs are eh.

Love’s Labradors puppies strives for the best caring and most loving homes for their puppies. We seek adopted homes to have a fenced yard, be responsible home owners, be past Labrador Retriever owners or raised a puppy of some breed and the care they are going to give this new 4 legged Angel on Earth is beyond what others would call Heaven on Earth. I care for these kids and want the love and caring to continue to the level I would care and love them and even more. I have never pushed my Labrador Retriever Puppies to competitors, as I wish for them to be loved on more than anything. Love’s Labradors is not a breeder for the field trialer or the show ring.

The steady temperament of Labradors and their ability to learn make them an ideal breed for search and rescue, detection, and therapy work. They are a very intelligent breed. They are ranked No. 7 in Stanley Coren’s The Intelligence of Dogs. The AKC describes the breed as an ideal family and sporting dog. Their primary working role in the field continues to be that of a hunting retriever.

I grew up with black labs and I am currently owning my 3rd black lab. When I was 2 my 13 year old dog passed away, then we got another the following year. The 1st was named Remy, then we got Roscoe who passed away 2 years ago at 8. Our current dog is Riggs, and he is a 1 and and half old. All the labradors we have owned have been male black labs. I recommend black labradors because of my experience with them, but all lab types are great dogs and extremely loyal.
They can smell and hear anything, and woof when your car enters the street, long before you turn into the drive. So empathetic, so emotionally perceptive, is the labrador that, it’s said, he or she will mimic their owners’ quirks and neuroses.
I’m joking, of course – my dog is dead – but if you’re going to spend an enormous sum of money on a purebred dog when there are plenty of beautiful bitser-everythings in need of homes, you might as well get a flashy one that no one’s ever heard of.
