The dog thread is better than the cat thread, because it features dogs.

    Rubying is *never* gratuitous twentythreedom. For she is the best and finest looking dog in the world. That's a Trabfact(TM). Can't believe it's been only a year since she was first on here looking like a tiny wise Yoda-dumpling pup ... or how fit and gorgeous and grownup she is now.

    My dog likes banana...I eat one with breakfast most days so of course the dog has to have some...
    In fact the couple of other Bull terriers types I've had also liked bananas. but I also give her the green leaves off strawberries and carrot, peas and broccoli ... haven't tried the big crunchy bits though

    We're meeting them next week, but... broadly correct. We have first dibs on the chocolate girl, I believe.

    And my wife dislikes black dogs, which rayt narrows it down.

    Thanks, Sprocket, that gives me an idea. I know a dog who would probably benefit from having a coconut to roll and befriend.

    We enquired after which, specifically, is the chocolate girl.

    If I’m honest... she doesn’t look like the most confident of the pack.

    We might make further enquiries wrt the others. (Idk. Does confidence matter? We have had advice from other lab owners that the bounciest / most confident lab is a good starting point for sociable labs :hmm: )

    Personally I'm a fan of black labs over chocolates - I've no idea why, but I have a gut feeling that chocolates have a greater propensity to turn to fat. That said, coming from a mixed litter, if there is a genetic predisposition among chocolates, it's likely to be much reduced compared to a purely chocolate litter.

    I doubt you'll have a problem with the pups temperament regardless of how confident or not it appears to be in the litter - I must have met a thousand labs and I've not met one I had concerns about.

    Likewise! Unfortunately, my other half doesn’t do black dogs.

    She is gorgeous! Look at those eyes :) and that steady expression.
    Confidence is nice but in the words of Cesar Milan you want a calm submissive energy puppy.

    That’s how my wife’s family chose their (subsequently untrained, 200% catastrophic) jack Russell.

    Turned out he’d just stolen, like, five pies *and* was gorged on milk that he’d bullied his peers out of, so was literally wallowing in his own crapulence and unable to move.

    They confused this for “a relaxed dog.”

    If I forward this to my wife, she’ll literally refuse to accept any hound at all :lol:

    Let me rephrase that.

    I have rarely met worse dog owners than my in-laws.

    That they chose an already batshit jack Russell did not help.

    Jack Russells are very high energy dogs...I had one and she was hilarious...full of energy and very much her own little character...tough as nails though and strong. She pulled a cast iron garden seat across the garden once just to get at the coalman. She lived to 17 and 3/4s and was a great companion for all that time
    ...missing her now...

    Yep...some sellers feed the pups a lot of food before you get to see them. So you see a quiet calm pup.
    It's best to see the pup lots of times...and ask about seeing them playing etc.

    I'd love to get another dog...maybe in 2018
