Labrador Retriever News Archive
Will no one dethrone this champion of all things CUTEz?!!
The Labrador Retriever has been named the American Kennel Club's Most Popular
girl in school Breed for the 22nd time in a row!
We wonder who the Lab is going to take to prom??? LOLz!
The breed beat out
Now this is the sort of national pride we can get behind!!!
Dogs native to the British Isles are seeing a resurgence in popularity as more and more dog owners are switching back to the breeds.
Recently, dog owners had shunned native breeds for more exotic pets, like a Siberian husky or a chihuahua.
Now, English setters, English toy terriers, and Sussex spaniels have all seen significant increases in registration!
Unfortunately, the bump has not been seen in all of Britain's native pooches. The otterhound and Skye terrier are still in decline and these two breeds are even at risk for extinction!
NOOOOOO…that won't do at all!!!!
Currently, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular breed in England.
Let's get the otterhound and Skye terrier breeds up there too!
What could possibly be any CUTERRR than an ADORBZ child with a COOL dog together, forever?
Which is why some very considerate folks put together a list of the most CHILD FRIENDLY DOG BREEDS!!!
To which we say, Scooby Dooby Doo!!!
Check out the list right here:
The “King of the Terriers” is hugely versatile, performing successfully as a hunter, guide dog for the blind, livestock herder, elegant show dog, and loving family pet. Airedale Terriers are smart, sensitive, and playful, making them fabulous companions for children.
Australian Shepherds are active, intelligent “people dogs” who want nothing more than to be a part of the family. Happy to travel to kids’ baseball games, join in on fun outings like trips to the beach, and herd the kids around the yard, Aussies make wonderful companions for respectful children who are taught to behave properly around the dog.
Described as bouncy and exuberant—ideal for keeping happy kids active and moving— the Bearded Collie lives to be around children. With its long, easycare, unkempt coat and athletic build, the Beardie loves to participate in fun activities and sports, like jogging, running alongside a bicycle, hiking, and chasing sheep (get some!). The Bearded Collie’s strong sheepdog instincts can lead to its gathering (herding) young people or even nipping at their Nikes: parents must train the dog to know the difference between kids and ewes and supervise so that the dog’s nanny instincts are properly channeled."
And that's just a VERY small sample of ALL the kid-friendly dog breeds there are!
Check out the rest of the list right here… AFTER THE JUMP!
Have you ever seen a dog cross his or her eyes before?
How about doing so…on COMMAND!!!
Olive is an 11 month old yellow Lab that can cross her eyes,
dot her t's, speak, kiss, shake and all sorts of doggie goodness…
By crossing her eyes by FAR, is blowing our minds!
Watch (above) and feast your eyes on CUTENESS!!!
So CUTEz! We just can't handle it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A patient dog and his human friend are simply divine as the pooch slowly approaches his friend.
Just a paw, just a pat…then the canine decides he wants to cuddle and smooch too!
Watch (above) as these cuties get close and comfortable…and CUTEZZZZ!
Sherri Shepherd may be busy cracking jokes on The View, but that ain't stopping her from rescuing an ADORBz lab right in time for the holidays!!!
Ashley, which the comedienne plans to rename Chloe, was transferred to New York City by Pooches on the Move from the Baker Bridge Rescue of Charleston, Tenn.
And after being a stray over a year ago that was UNFORTUNATELY found covered in green paint along with her little puppy, the starlet found her on Petfinder.com and picked her up on Saturday.
