I enjoyed reading all the beautiful stories. My heart was broken Nov.29,2018 when my best Buddy passed suddenly at age 8 1/2. He helped me through some very dark times. Was there for me always. It is 3 months and I cry even writing this. One morning we woke and he didn’t want to stand. I’m handicap and spend most of my day in a recliner or scooter. I can walk some. I mention this because it took every ounce I had to put a towel under him to try & raise him. No can do. I rolled him on a rug and pulled him into a room that I could get down close to him. While I tried for 2 hours to call people I knew to help me. For some reason noone was there. I tried to get the attention of garbage truck drivers, fed ex drivers. But noone. He laid in my arms took deep breaths and passed away. Buddy was my everything. He would get me up when I fell, lay next to me when I was sad or to calm me. Gently kiss my tears away. Steady my when needed. Bring me things I needed (and sometimes things I didn’t need lol) My shadow in being and heart. My niece trained him for me. He was not purchased knowing I would need him for therapy needs. But, when my life took a dramatic change he was there always. Don’t know how to heal from this. He had a strange quirck that we never understood. He could hear/see the white streaks very high in the sky that airplanes left. He would bark at them obsessively. He saw/heard them before we could. We could never hear them & barely see the white steak. Buddy was my everyday companion for my 12+ hours I was aloan everyday & through the rest of the night. Don’t know if color made any difference. Buddy was a red fox color. Loved kids, cats, dogs LIFE. Saved me & my 1 year old grand daughterfrom a person coming into our home by barking a bark I had never heard before until police got there. He was the perfect sweet boy. I lay here today reading all what has been said and my husband wants to take me to look at puppies. My family is worried that I’m so sad without him. But, no new lab regardless the type ‘English or American’ ‘Red fox, black, yellow, chocolate or silver’ will be my ‘Buddy’ But maybe in time it he or she will become a buddy to me. Not sure I’m ready but will look. In any case, in my opinion after owning many dogs in my 60 years. You can’t go won’t with the most beautiful breed as the Labrador.
Excitable. Labradors are a fun-loving breed. They love to play and are high energy dogs that rely on getting lots of exercise and mental stimulation. They are often very boisterous dogs if not given limits and love people and other dogs.
While individual dogs may vary, in general show-bred Labradors are heavier built, slightly shorter-bodied, and have a thicker coat and tail. Field Labradors are generally longer-legged, lighter, and more lithe in build, making them agile. In the head, show Labradors tend to have broader heads, better defined stops, and more powerful necks, while field Labradors have lighter and slightly narrower heads with longer muzzles. Field-bred Labradors are commonly higher energy and more high-strung compared to the Labrador bred for conformation showing while conformation breeds are calmer in energy, and as a consequence may be more suited to working relationships than being a “family pet”. Some breeders, especially those specialising in the field type, feel that breed shows do not adequately recognise their type of dog, leading to occasional debate regarding officially splitting the breed into subtypes.
I breed AKC and HRC Labrador Retriever puppies and as well, offer stud service in yellow, chocolate and black colors. The goal of Love’s Labradors is to produce genetically clean health tested labrador puppies that are superior in good looks, intelligent puppies that have a strong keen sense of smell for the bird, antler sheds, cancer, have strong desire to retrieve, have a built that is structurally sound and balanced, be agile and quick to handle any agility event, flyball or dock dog jumping, have a wonderful disposition that are cuddly, warm and have a sensitive temperment that makes the best family companions at home, RV or traveling.

We became inseparable. Our relationship was made stronger through isolation and the pressures of life on that Outer Hebridean island. When it all became too much for me, Inca and I would retreat together. When, a year later I emerged into the real world, we were a team.
If you have inadvertently bought a puppy that is too young to leave its mother (less than seven weeks old), do phone your vet for advice on proper care and feeding, and take the pup for a check up without delay.
Before the age of two or three, many Labradors can be extremely active and destructive despite their breed reputation for calm dispositions. It’s in their extended adolescence that many Labradors find appeal in swallowing rocks, socks and Barbie dolls, all of which — and more — have been surgically removed from these dogs.
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.

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.
Many reputable breeders have websites, so how can you tell who’s good and who’s not? Red flags include puppies always being available, multiple litters on the premises, having your choice of any puppy, and the ability to pay online with a credit card. Those things are convenient, but they are almost never associated with reputable breeders.
Let your dog stand up and place your dogs paw on a blank piece of paper. For length mark from the longest toenail to the back of the paw. For width mark the widest of the paw left to right. Measure paw’s width for the best fit.

Totally agree. I have a two year old named Dudley, a crazy as hell chocolate Lab. he is so giddy and fun packed he makes me cry with laughter some days. So smuch so that I have started blogging about him regularly at http://www.stareofthedog.co.uk
The best way to find your size is to measure your favorite tee about an inch below the arm hole, lying flat. If you double that measurement, you will come up with the bust measurement of the tee. Compare your measurement with those provided in the product descriptions above to get an estimate of the best size to order.
That’s another thing about labradors. When they look in the mirror they see another dog. And when they see another dog in the park, they see another dog. But when they think of themselves, they see you. It’s the perfect recipe for empathy.
The transition back to city life was tough for both of us but together we resettled. She accompanied me on photo shoots and TV shows but her greatest coup came when she helped find me a wife. It was 2004 and we were walking together in Hyde Park when I spotted a beautiful blonde girl running with her Labrador Maggi. It was fate, and Marina and I married with marzipan figurines of the two Labradors on our wedding cake. The dogs even came on our honeymoon.

I’ve since had three Labradors in my life, and what attracts me most is that happy-go-lucky, bouncy, tail-wagging demeanour. They project a euphoria I find contagious. It’s a refreshing antithesis to the cold modern world, and part of the reason I decided to write a book about these magnificent creatures.

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.
