You know you're a labrador owner when...... :D

You have a kid's paddling pool in the garden, but no kids!

You have baby gates permanently installed at strategic places around the house, but no babies.

The rubbish bin is more or less permanently installed in the kitchen sink, to keep your lab out of it while you're at work.

You can't see out the passenger side of the windshield because there are nose-prints all over the inside.

Poop has become a source of conversation for you and your significant other.

You refer to yourselves as Mummy and Daddy.

Your labrador sleeps with you.

You have 32 different names for your lab. Most make no sense, but they understand.

You have little songs that you sing to your lab, and they always wag their tails when you sing, even though you can't carry a tune.

Your lab eats cat poop, but you still let them kiss you (but not immediately afterwards, of course).

You like people who like your lab.

You carry dog biscuits in your bag or pocket at all times.

You talk about your lab the way other people talk about their kids.

You sign and send birthday/anniversary/Christmas cards from your lab.

You put an extra blanket on the bed so your lab can be comfortable.

You'd rather stay home on Saturday night and cuddle your lab than go to the cinema with your other half.


You go to the pet store every Saturday because it's one of the very few places that lets you bring your lab inside, and your lab loves to go with you.

You open your purse, and that big bunch of poobags you use for pick-ups pops out.

You get an extra-long hose on your shower-massage just so you can use it to wash your lab in the bath, without making your lab sit hip-deep in water.

You don't think it's the least bit strange to stand in the back garden chirping "Meg, pee!" over and over again, while Meg tends to play and forget what she's out there for (but what your neighbours think of your behaviour is yet another story).

You and your lab come down with something like flu on the same day. Your lab sees the vet while you settle for an over-the-counter remedy from the chemist.

Your number plate mentions your lab.

You match your furniture/carpet/clothes to your lab.

You have your lab's picture on your office desk (but no one else's).

You lecture people on responsible dog ownership every chance you get.

You hang around the dog section of your local bookstore.

You skip breakfast so you can walk your lab in the morning before work.

You are the only idiot out walking in the pouring rain, but your lab needs their walk.

You don't go to happy hours with co-workers any more because you need to go home and see your dog.

Your parents refer to your lab as their granddog, remember their birthday, and sending them greeting cards and gifts.

Your weekend activities are planned around taking your lab for a hike (both days).

You keep an extra water dish in your second-floor bedroom, in case your lab gets thirsty at night (after all, their other dish is way down on the first floor...).

Your freezer contains more dog bones than anything else.

You never completely finish a piece of steak or chicken (so your lab gets a taste, too).

You avoid vacuuming the house as long as possible because your lab is afraid of the vacuum cleaner.

You keep eating even after finding a dog hair in your pasta.

You make popcorn just to play catch with your lab.

You carry pictures of your lab in your wallet instead of pictures of your parents, siblings, significant other, or anyone else remotely human.

And the number one reason you know you're a dog person:

Your dog is the star of your World Wide Web site!


Hope you enjoy these!! :lol: :lol:

Excellent Julie - I bet everyone on the LabForums can relate to most of those, although, one was missing...
... You become a DIY god by learning to replace skirting boards, kitchen cupboards, etc, etc!

I sent a photo of Corbie to Graeme to have on his pc desktop at work, but he said he couldn't have a photo of his puppy on his work computer :lol: Think he was trying to get an F1 pit girl instead....Men! :roll:

Of course, Corbie has his own website :lol:

Not only do you buy clothes to match you labbie but furniture too.

Your entire house is the same colour (clothes, carpets, sofas, floors) due to layer of lab hair.

You have more dog towels than human towels hanging on your washing line

Would like to add that your garden looks like it has had weedkiller poured all over it,due to the lack of plants.
