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 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.
They are territorial, have very big woofs and, so, are good watchdogs. But they don’t like to bite and are great with kids. True, one thing – food (term used loosely) – unites them. They are the InSinkErators of doggy-dom – their only shortcoming. But hey, who among us wouldn’t eat a 17.5 kilogram bag of salty treats in one sitting if we thought no-one would find out?

The predominate canine selected by the US Military during the Vietnam War was the German Shepherd Dog, which was used in the roles of Scout Dogs, Sentry Dogs, Mine Detection Dogs, and the US Navy used Water Dogs to detect enemy under water divers in South Vietnam. The Labrador Retriever was the military’s choice for their Combat Tracker Teams (CTTs). Combat Tracker Teams consisted of one Labrador and four or five men: the handler, an observer, one or two cover men, and the team leader. Labradors were selected by the military for tracking because of their distinct smelling qualities, and were used to locate wounded US servicemen, enemy patrols, and downed allied airmen in Vietnam. The US Army Labrador Retrievers received their combat training at the British Army’s Jungle Warfare School in Malaysia.

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, but 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.

Puppies of all colours can potentially occur in the same litter. Colour is determined primarily by three genes. The first gene (the B locus) determines the density of the coat’s eumelanin pigment granules, if that pigment is allowed: dense granules result in a black coat, sparse ones give a chocolate coat. The second (E) locus determines whether the eumelanin is produced at all. A dog with the recessive e allele will produce only phaeomelanin pigment and will be yellow regardless of its genotype at the B locus. The genes known about previously have had their number increased by the introduction of the K locus, where the dominant “black” allele KB is now known to reside. Black or chocolate Labradors therefore must have the KB allele. Yellow Labradors are determined at the E locus, so the K locus is irrelevant in determining their colour. Variations in numerous other genes control the subtler details of the coat’s colouration, which in yellow Labradors varies from white to light gold to a fox red. Chocolate and black Labradors’ noses will match the coat colour.

By the early 1880s the original Buccleuch strain had all but died out, just six decades on from those original purchases on the Clyde. This could well have signalled the end of the Scottish lineage of the Labrador, were it not for the third Earl of Malmesbury, who ‘gave the duke a pair, descended from our own imported dogs’ and the bloodline was continued when they were mated with the duke’s dogs.
Labrador retrievers have a short double coat to help keep them warm and waterproof. They do shed—some more than others—so it’s important to give your Lab a good brushing once a month or as often as necessary. Labs also like to roll around in dust and dirt, so keep a hose handy!

Bloat and Gastric Volvulus– Large deep-chested breeds are prone to bloat, which is where the stomach rapidly expands with gas and fluid. Bloat can often then lead to torsion or twisting of the stomach, which is rapidly fatal if not treated immediately.
I’m looking for a family who spends lots of time outdoors, whether it’s the park, beach or backyard. I’m smart, so don’t expect me to always amuse myself, I flourish with training and being kept busy. If you love to run, take me with you. If you like dog parks, I do too.
Breeders should sell puppies with a written contract guaranteeing they’ll take back the dog at any time during his life if you become unable to keep him, and with written documentation that both the puppy’s parents (and if possible, his other close relatives) have had their hips, eyes and elbows examined and certified by the appropriate health organizations. Seek out a breeder whose dogs are active in field trials, hunt tests, agility, obedience and other sports that require athleticism and good health, and not just ribbons from the show ring.
