Around 15 years ago someone dropped off a pregnant Lab here.

She had 8 pups and was a good mama dog. Six of them were various mutts but two looked to be all or nearly all Lab. When they were old enough, I put up a sign and gave away all of them within a few days. Every time I would give one away mama dog would try to follow the vehicle. Finally gave her and a pup away together.

The one I kept was a really sweet dog. He was also a useful dog out in the country where I live.

I never could understand why anyone would just throw away such a good dog.

In my lifetime, I’ve had numbers one, two and three in that list. I’ve also had a mutt (combo of two and three) and now have a Labradoodle (combo of three and eight, standard poodle.)

All GREAT dogs, magnificent in their own ways, highly intelligent, family friendly and easily trainable, though the German Shepherds take the most work.

Their names were Jeepers (German Shepherd) Sanford (Golden Retriever, nicknamed Bonehead) Jerry (Shepherd Golden Retriever mix) and now Teddy, a Labradoodle.

Each one was an example of mans best friend.

I think the survey was on all dogs, not just female dogs...

I think Hillary is more of a beast than a dog.

Now Chelsea....

OMG, how could I forget my first dog, “Licker.” Named such because he gave everyone a lick “kisses.” Family already had him when I was born, he died when I was six or seven. What a great dog for a young boy.

And they come in three color choices.

HINT: choose Lab color to match the color of your carpeting and pants/furniture

Best dogs in the world are muts. Every one I’ve had has been a stray. The best of all was a Siberian Husky mix. Smartest and most polite dog ever. I don’t cry over people as much as I do her all these years after she went over the rainbow. Screen is getting blurry now...

I've had several breeds of dog, including beagles, but I like boxers best (excluding that rabid b!tch from CA).

They can be refined:

or silly:

But almost all the time, happy;

I think dogs are just about the best of all of God’s creations...that’s probably why god spelled backwards is dog.

My yellow Lab is named Hoover like the vacuum. We got him at 13 weeks and the breeder already named him. It fits perfectly. His nose is to the ground after every one of our meals. He starts at my sons spot because he’s the messiest. My kids love that dog more than us I think....

In my house,it would be the Nova Scotia Duck Toller.

Enough personality for any 3 or 4 dogs.
