    1. I have a 16 year old..so I feel really blessed! And an 11 year old too!

    2. I just lost my yellow lab. He was almost 10 but he was the most reliable and loyal dog I ever loved. He was a rescue and I never regretted getting him. I loved him so much and I am lost without him. I got him at 7 months old and had the best 9yrs with him. A great dog that just loved everyone especially kids. He would just sit and let them do whatever they wanted to him. If I ever get another companion dog it will be another Lab they are the sweetest and most loving breed.

    3. I have a 13 year old black lab, and 11 year old chocolate, and the chocolate lab puppy will be 1 year old next month.

    4. Jeb is our Great LabraDane Retriever (lab and Great Dane mix). He has us wrapped around his paws – love, love, love this dog.

    5. I have an 8 year old white lab and she is my baby! I love this high-energy dog so much! She is the sweetest and funniest dog I’ve ever had! Loyal and loving….she brightens up every day of my life!

    6. I have had 3 labs. My male (black)lived to 14 1/2 and our female (chocolate) lived to 13 1/2. I have their son (black) who just turned 10. He is the love of my life. Been cuddling him since the minute he took his first breath. I will never have another breed. Love all animals but labradors have my heart.

    7. I have two female black lab/ bloodhound mix children! They are a year old and they are both the best thing that happened to me and my wife in a long time. They are so loyal,smart and loveable. We have small grandchildren and both our girls LOVE the children to no end,and they WATCH the kids while at play and play along with them. There is not a mean bone in their bodies, I am blessed truly blessed to have gotten them.We got them at 7 weeks and hope to have many more years of love and happiness with them. So if your thinking of adopting, don’t hesitate you won’t be sorry.

    8. I just lost my 11.5 year old yellow, Duke. He was my constant companion and shadow. My heart still isn’t over losing him. Thankfully his sister, a chocolate who will be 9 in November, was here with me when we had to let him go. She has taken over his spot and is now my shadow. The new chocolate we just got is 9 months old and is more my husband’s puppy. She loves him. I will never own another breed, Labs are the best dogs ever.
