Disadvantages: Can be quite greedy and put weight on easily
Ever since I was young I wanted a dog and when I moved out my partners dog came to live with us, Henrys a very sociable dog who does love company either from another dog or people. My youngest Labrador Bella, entered our lives 5 years ago and boy did she change things. We already had a German Shephard and our male Labrador but we didn't realise Bella came from working lines, this basically means shes a sleek, speedy girl who needs to use her brain to tire her out as not amount of exercise seems to (we did a 12 mile walk and she was still bombing around like no tomorrow). We have completed the good citizen scheme, bronze, silver and gold and started competing in agility about 2 years ago. She might not be as quick as a collie but she'll give them a good run for their money and enjoys barking at me the whole way around. My other Labrador Henry is 11 and a half but seems to think hes still 2, his eyes and hearing might be starting to fade and has a bit of athritus but for a dog his age hes still going strong. The key for long life in this breed is to ensure they don't put on too much weight as they are terribly greedy (they chewed through a cupboard door to get into the sack of food!!) The best thing to sum up a lab is fun loving with a great zest for life who fit into a family very well.
