    Is that a doggie life jacket? :) They look to be having a great time. I love picture number two......

    Awwwwww... I love labs! Looks like they were having a blast! We have a life jacket for Tanner but he just doesn't like it! We ususally use it though when we go to the lake as the swells from the bigger boats get him when he begins to tire. Our guy LOVES the water...They are a blast aren't they!

    Here's a photo of Tanner in the creek behind our house.

    He was waiting for "dad" to throw the stick...

    Oh they had so much fun! They were to pooped to poop! They both passed out on the ride home, which is pretty unusual because they LOVE going bye-bye.

    The one has to wear a life jacket when she is out in deeper water, it's not that she can't swim, it's just that she thrashes around in the water so much that I think she gets confused, so I worry. It's almost like her hind legs don't go as fast as her front

    Shockingly enough, the younger pup is so smooth in the water. Swimming is such a good work out for him, he's only 18mos and has the early signs of hip dysplashia (sp). :( So in the summer time, we try to get them to the river 1-2 x a week.

    Labs are WONDERFUL pets, they are a part of our family for sure. My baby girl (the black one) knows when there is something wrong with me, she wouldn't leave my side when I had my tooth pulled, it was kind of annoying. Lol. And my go-go (the yellow) is SUPER mellow. He would make a great nursing home pet, any more mellow, that dog would be a door mat. I've had other dogs, but labs have always been my fav, well that and great danes (I'll have a dane one day).

    The only draw back that I've seen so far has been the eagerness to retrieve. For a hunter that's great, but my girl is fetch obsessed!!!! She has run herself into heat stroke a few times, so we need to watch her very closely. We can't even take her to the dog park anymore because there is always someone there throwing a ball. She will quickly disown me or my husband and buddy up with a complete stranger just to play fetch.. :roll: What a traitor, I tell ya! Lol

    LOL... Must be a lab thing! Tanner will disown us when he sees a tennis ball in someone's hands! He will play fetch for as long as you will throw the dang ball!

    LOL It gets so annoying! She makes me look like a fool. Over all she is a pretty well behaved pup, but once she see's someone throwing a ball or a kong, she gets obsessed. I've actually never seen another dog ignore other dogs as much or as well as she does.

    LOL She reminds me of the stuck-up athletic type girls I went to school with.
