    I have another Chocolate Lab, shes 10 years old, loves to play in the snow. I think this is her favorite time of the year. Dave.

    Cute pic!
    Our chocolate is Abby and we got her a year ago last fall, along with another that is a yellow, Cooper.
    When the snow started falling last year, they had a blast in it chasing,....uh, retrieving, small squeaky footballs. It's still one of their favorite things to do.
    Cooper LOVES the water, and Abby kinda likes it.

    I can't get my chocolate lab outside in the cold. She'd rather curl up infront of the stove. She hates the snow, doesn't swim, I think I got a lemon.

    You never know about them. My oldest loves the water and the snow, she loves rolling around in the snow. I think she has part otter in her. She will get up on the snow banks I make with my plow and slide on her back. Then again she loves being in the house by the fire. Dave.

    She is yellow! Big chicken and doesn't act like a Lab at all. She acts more like a house cat.

    She doesn't like the cold and she can't take the heat - stays inside for the A/C. She has alergies and her scent gland is awful. Always putting out a smell. $ 1100 to remove, she's not worth it.

    After she eats in the morning - she'll walk around the yard and eat rabbit pellets. Chews up everything she can swipe.

    You're pup is a cute one. Hope she's better then my mongrel dog!

    Dog's anal glands - bad smell - Answered by Dr. Slome

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These are likely anal gland substance that he is secreting monthly - it IS really putrid. Some dogs get infections of these glands and cause them to build up content more quickly. Other dogs just have it periodically and there is nothing wrong. This is a natural repellant which is also a unique smell to each dog ( that is why dog's smell each others behinds). Sometimes people have these glands surgically removed if there is a chronic reoccuring infection or they just can't stand the smell.

    Sorry. You can also try and get an animal odour eliminator from your veterinarian which at least will neutralise the smell within short time when sprayed on the anus area.

    nice dog. i used to have a black lab that loved to go for rides. i would jingle the keys to let her know what was about to happen. once, before i headed out on the cycle, i jingled the keys and she got ready to go for a ride. the bike was running and as i was on it ready to pull away, she looked so disappointed that the guilt laid in so i let go of the handle bars on one side and said "c'mon". the next thing i know, she jumped onto the seat, put her front paws on the gas tank and leaned back into me. well away we went with no problems at all. i didn't take her for too many rides like that but she sure enjoyed when i did! i have a dog lover now but her dog decided he lived long enough 3 years ago. i just can't convince her to get a lab so we are dogless...which isn't all that bad. sure frees you up during vacation time anyway. merry christmas, eh!

    I feed him, keep him warm, and safe. I let him sit on my side of couch and sleep on the bed, and this is how he responds when I say, "Bring me the ball". Mans best friend my A##!

    True. But I bet he's always glad to see you !! It could be worse, you could have a fox terrier that is mega tennis ball OCD. Walmart has them the cheapest :coolsmirk:

    Nice, another chocolate lab puppy, LOVE em.

    Duke loves the snow too, but so far we have barely even gotten a dusting this year. were both pissed off about that!

    Duke did not like swimming at first but now i cannot keep him out of the water.

    He does NOT like the truck at all on the other hand. hates the car with a passion, doesnt even matter if were going to the park or for a hike, he still hates it, gets anxious and drools and whines. poor guy.

    He is my shadow

    He works against me when it comes to the stacks though, thinks all the wood is sticks for me to throw for him.
