RULES FOR LABRADORS!



1. The dustbin contains no biscuits!

2. Your head does not belong in the fridge.

3. The bin men are not stealing are things.

4. Shake your coat before going into the house.

5. Don't eat the cat's food, not before they have had a chance to eat it, and especially not when they have and thrown up.

6. Do not search for the last piece of clean carpet when you feel sick.

7. No rolling over dead animals, just because they smell good.

8. No stealing of underwear and running around the garden with it.

9. The sofa is not a towel, neither are trousers.

10. The cat is not a squeaking toy.




YOU KNOW YOU OWN A LABRADOR WHEN.....


1. Every piece of clothing you own, the sofa , your bed and anything that feels soft is covered in dog hair.

2. There are always paw prints on the kitchen worktops.

3. All squeaky toys have no squeak and all stuffed toys have no stuffing.

4. Your dustbin has to be moved on the kitchen worktops.

5. You brought an estate car to take the dog out.

6. Your kids never have dirty hands or faces.

7. You never find a pair of shoes in one place.

8. You don't own an alarm clock as your lab wakes you up every morning.

9. Everything you ever painted has dog hair included.

10. The space around the water bowl is wetter than the bowl itself.

11. Lost things are usually found in the dogs bed or outside in the garden!

These are great, totally accurate summing up of life with a lab. We have just bought an estate car to take the dog out in :lol:

Paul - speaking of fires, we have had to stop using the calor gas heater in the kitchen as Brady singed his fur sitting so close to it :shock: :eek:nfire:

Hi Kezza, I know what you mean - We used to have a Mondeo estate for just me and my wife and Shadow. You could tell people would think "Why do they need such a big car"!

Hi Kezza & Paul,

I know what you mean we had a Escort, but with a bit of arm twisting and having to drag the other half to the show room we've ended up with a new Ford Galaxy! :lol: Nothing like air con to keep doggies cool!! :D

Hi Cristina - know what you mean about air con. The mondeo estate was the first car that we had with it and i wouldn't be without it now. We changed 2 years ago to a Focus hatch, which is fine for Shadow now (with the parcel shelf removed, obviously!) but with him not getting any younger, we're thinking about either a Volvo V40 or V70 - more space and a lower lip for him to get up to_Oh yes, it must have air con too 8)

My other half - Rich - has made the ultimate sacrifice for Harvey! He has sold his beloved Golf VR6 and one of his motorbikes for a lovely Vectra estate :D
Bless him - he must love him!

Wow Fay, you're other half must be keen, to sell his bike!

Cristina - I hadn't thought of cutting a hole - who needs a nodding churchill dog on the parcel shelf?! Are the ramps any good - I've seen them advertised in different publications and wondered if Shadow would use it?

Hi Paul,

Yes the ramps are really good, it took a while for him to get used to it but now he sits there waiting untill I put the ramp down for him and won't move until it is there! 8O :lol: I can just see the nodding labrador now!! :lol:

Hi Fay,

You poor other half! :twisted: At least now if he puts his foot down harvey won't look like a garfield stuck to the back window! :lol: We had a Vectra for a while, it was a nice car.

Men! they just can't quite make that step to a normal car, they have to have it that little bit faster!!! Mine is just the same had to have a turbo diesel galaxy!

Harvey will still look like a garfield stuck to the window then! 8O :lol: And I'm sorry to say it Fay, I don't think I would have switched either!! :lol:

OH NO! Ben has just farted!!! :fart:

Hi Everyone!

I've just read the rules and had to reply.

Alarm clock - I haven't set one since Rufus came!

Bigger car - Yeap we are looking at changing ours and the Clio is far to small for him and he will have out grown the Golf soon!

Squeaky Toys - The squeak has gone out of them all. Except the really annoying high pitched chicken leg! I HATE THAT ONE AND HE KNOWS!

Missing items outside - I found one of my slippers outside yesterday. Covered in mud and doggy slobber!

I could go on and on but i won't. So i've sent it to Steve (my other half) for a giggle.

Rach & Rufus :D
