    I've been taught you shouldn't be able to see your Labrador's ribs but be able to feel them (ours is a field Lab..)

    Guess it's perhaps who you ask. Book I bought from the vets reckons just visible. I weigh Lemmy's food and adjust the portion down slightly if he's had a treat or stolen human food, and I can just see a hint of them sometimes as he moves so I think I'm pretty close. He's not the biggest dog in the World, 71lbs. 109618.image0.jpg

    Just a few random images!.

    She's 9 months old now and doing great!.

    Weighed in at 25kg recently and she's more than likely at full size now.

    Spent last 3 months on loose lead walking training but finally getting there.

    Met her body double a few weeks back on a walk, had a mad half hour together..

    Been out on the fields every morning this holiday, good excuse to get out in some fresh air!.

    She is utterly adorable, as all Labradors are. Best dogs in the World.

    Living as we do in a 1-bedroom flat, a dog is out of the question. But friends from our previous village of Brentor let us dog and house sit so we get away from the hutch and have a dog as well, however temporarily.
    Sanity-saving stuff, I tells ya...

    Labradors have 2 goals in life - lady doggies, and human food!

    Not forgetting the never-know-when-to-stop chasing of balls.

    Are you going to get her spayed, or are you going to breed from her?

    Not decided on either yet, even if we don't breed we might keep her intact.

    So much conflicting information when you read into it all.

    Just waiting for any stray food while I cook tea..

    depends on neighbouring dogs, if you can sleep with 4 or 5 dogs sitting outside your front door howling all night long then go for it. (its only for a week at a time)
