I grew up with labs and my mom always loved the yellows the best, saying they were more mellow. I got my black lab Alice when I graduated high school, who is now 7, and she is the sweetest and friendliest, most beautiful dog! She is always so happy and she does have a lot of energy, so we go to the park to throw her frisbee discs as often as possible. She just has such a wonderful personality and it makes me really love the blacks. I would recommend them, or yellows, for a home family pet because they do so well with children and prove to be very loyal and protective.
Labrador Retrievers are very muscular and strong. They are very independent which means that sometimes Labs want to do things their own way. You will need to be strong and consistent when you work with your dog.
I’m not sure when I first met Labradors but I think it was Poppy and Oscar, who belonged to a dear late friend of mine, Alice Benkert. It was breed love at first sight. The snout and the ears. The body shape and that personality.
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.
The Lab has a double coat — a soft, insulating undercoat topped with a short, hard, protective outer layer. Labs shed heavily, and brushing them once or twice a week will help keep the fur from flying.

Lucky and Flo, twin Black Labrador counterfeit-detection who became famous in 2007 for “sniffing out nearly 2 million counterfeit DVDs” on a six-month secondment to Malaysia in 2007.

I fed raw to my dogs for many years, but I did not do this and could not have done this, when my kids were little. Nowadays, I sometimes feed kibble, if circumstances demand it, but prefer to feed raw whenever I can

Labrador Retrievers are registered in three colours: black (a solid black colour), yellow (considered from cream to fox-red), and chocolate (medium to dark brown). Some dogs are sold as silver pure-bred Labradors, but purity of those bloodlines is currently disputed by breed experts including breed clubs and breed councils. Some major kennel clubs around the world allow silver Labradors to be registered, but not as silver. The Kennel Club (England) requires that they be registered as “Non-recognised.” Occasionally, Labradors will exhibit small amounts of white fur on their chest, paws, or tail, and rarely a purebred Lab will exhibit brindling stripes or tan points similar to a Rottweiler. These markings are a disqualification for show dogs but do not have any bearing on the dog’s temperament or ability to be a good working or pet dog.
Uncle Joe was the gamekeeper on the local estate. After his wife Pat, he had two abiding loves in his life. Ethel, his series two Land Rover and Prince, his Black Labrador. The three of them were inseparable. As a young lad, they were a big part of my life. Inevitably, it couldn’t last……… Nigel Hemming
As a brief summary, the primary well documented benefits of raw feeding are great dental health (with self-cleaning teeth), small quantities of virtually odourless poop, and (important for dogs with allergies) a diet free from grains.
