Breed of the Week: Sadie Shen the English Labrador Retriever!

Welcome to This 'N That Thursday! 

It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…





Hosted by 2 brown dawgs & Ruckus the Eskie. Please hop on and join the fun!

Here's to another week of B.O.W.! Today we're featuring Sadie Shen the Yellow English Labrador Retriever...or as i'm going to dub now: young YELR!

She's a canine Mother Teresa!
Sadie Shen resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and she loves long walks (on the beach perhaps!), fetching sticks, and has found a current new hobby in swimming endlessly! Friend her here: Sadie Shen. She is the first female canine featured on my B.O.W.!

Labrador Retrievers (Labs for short) seem to be one of the most pupular breeds in America. I have two other PawPals, Boomer and Rocky, and we rumble in the backyard all the time!

This breed is extremely well-built and very playful. They have a great sense of smell and will track something down until no end when they get a sense. Labs are also very friendly and great with the family. Their generally have a gentle mind about their mouth, as they were bred to assist in catching waterfowl in hunting. I am initially very intimidated by Labs. They are bigger than me, and their bark is much louder! But, I think I am much faster and love the thrill of the chase!

Labs are generally healthy and will be loyal to their sapien for about 10-12 years. They are known to have an uncontrollable appetite, so their sapien must be cautious to feed them at set times and allow lots of exercise. As I mentioned before, Sadie Shen loves to swim in the water, and here's a little video of us at Point Isabel, CA.

  5. My Toby has the insatiable appetite you speak of, but he tends to forget the gentle mouth thing when a favorite tug toy is involved. :-)

  6. Sadie is beautiful, and your other pals are cute too, Ruckus. I love labs! Our next dog will probably be a lab or a lab mix.

  9. Hi there! I've read many posts about dog, and I can tell that yours is very valuable. Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. Besides serving as pets, these dogs are used for various other purposes in many countries. It is said about them that they are gentle, intelligent, full of energy and recommended for people of any age. Also known as St. John’s descendant, the Labrador Retriever originates from Canada where it was first used for catching fish. http://dogsaholic.com/breeds/profiles/labrador-retriever.html

  10. We still usually go for the same amount of over all time, and on the way there and the way back I have air-conditioning in my car. And we go early in the morning, but I make sure we do a lot less walking. We usually cut our two laps down to one, and take many water stops, and if I am going to allow them to play, it is in the shade usually.

  15. cat carrier owners across North America love to dote on their dogs and cats, often referring to their furry companions as 'best friends' or 'family members'. Did you know that more than half of all U.S. dog owners say they are more attached to their pets than to at least one other human being, and from 4-13 million say they are as attached to their dogs as they are to their best friend, children, or spouse? Whether you can relate, or you think these indulging pet owners are a bit fanatical, recent studies show having a strong relationship with pets is good for pet owners, improving their physical and mental health and even keeping their waist lines slim. Read on to find out why, including tips from The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan.
