The American Kennel Club says the Labrador retriever is the nation's most popular dog for the 22nd straight year - for attributes that range from family-friendly pet to search-and-rescue nose.

I love weiner dogs, got one at home who’s half chihuahua, I guess they call it a chihweenie. He’s friggin hilarious although he can be a jerk sometimes.

How can a person not adore
The aspect of a Labrador?
The otter tail, the silly grin,
The open heart to take you in.
Wonderful love from earnest eyes
Heart-warming truth, a friend so wise.
At play, at work, at rest, at ease,
The Labrador was born to please.

The best dogs I ever had were always Lab-Shepherd crosses.

Although, I loved my black lab, Shadow. She was the best friend and the name fit her perfectly...always beside me, always with me. Miss that dog...sniff sniff

My three would agree with you. Eddie, Harry, and Phillip. All named after royalty, as they should be.

Based on the number I see (including mine), I would say the most popular dog is the Mutt!

We have a lunatic. A lunatic is a Labrador. Ours is 18 this year sometime. He just had a stroke a few weeks ago, and Mrs. RQSR has nursed him back to the point he is running, and playing again albeit torqued, and unable to stand straight, and erect. He obviously feels good, and tries to leap, and run about as though he was a puppy whenever we come into the fenced front patio where we keep him for his security. His functions are impaired, but not to the point he needs to be euthanized by any means. We will keep him comfortable as we can to the end. He’s a good boy, and always has been although typical of the breed he’s nuts.

One of the first words our young daugheter taught our dog was “vacuum”. We use it when we drop a bit of food in the kitchen and he comes running.

Either you couldn’t pick a color OR you couldn’t pick just one from the litter. Which one is it?! LOL!

We love labs (this is the beautiful Bella), and we love our border-collie/lab mix (Addy!) too. Dogs are not only cool, but necessary! (at least in our household).

Bulldogs Rule!!

No, seriously, she herds us where she wants us to go. She is in charge. She has us trained.

She fits her name, Duchess. A lady of royal bearing.

How can you not love that face!!

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

Boy, that is certainly true.

Because of shedding, when we went shelter shopping for a pooch in 2009, I specifically wanted a dog with short dark fur.

At the time, I was unaware that our yellow lab — AKA Super Shedding Machine — was about to choose us.

Best dog ever when I was a kid was our boxer Rex. He thought he was one of us kids.
