Hello lab owners and lovers out there!! Bowie and I just recently joined this forum and have felt nothing but love, support and warm welcomes. I thought I'd share an excerpt from my blog post - things you'll only understand when you have a labrador! and celebrate the beautiful - sometimes amusing, annoying and baffling - relationship with your lab! Here are my ten favourites: 1. The biting - How could this cute, soft little thing suddenly turn into a crocopup? 2. The constant shedding ... 24/7, all year around! 3. They will do anything for FOOD - even selling their soul From the 'big eyes' stare (aka 'Puss in Boots') to dribbling in anticipation and devising such a devious plan to get that mouth-watering piece of chicken from the kitchen bench. 4. What's the fascination with shoes?! ... and chewing in general really but shoes are the only thing we don't seem to get Bowie to stay away from, ohh... and kangaroo/wombat's poo! 5. His hair haunts me everywhere ... even when he's never been to the place. I even get paranoid of drinking tea - I almost swallowed his hair a few times! 6. Can I have my privacy please? It's so cute to see Bowie follows me everywhere but now it's getting borderline stalking He'll even wait for me outside the bathroom and sometimes he'll be like a ninja - you turn around and there he is! 7. Zoomies one minute and snores the next We still marvel at how Bowie can be so playful and having endless energy one minute and on his back snoring the next. 8. Will chase anything that's around and moving 9. Love water ... and rolling around in wet soils and muddy puddles arghhh... 10. Last but not least, his smile just melts my heart ... and the love he's shown me through his many licks through my ups and down. What's yours? If you'd like to read the full post, go here.
