Not that my opinion matters but Labs are my favorite, especially chocolate or black. Yellow is the crazy color as we say around here. I love my crazy Prozac popping little boy but every yellow one I have had has been neurotic. Had a Rottie/lab mix that was amazing too!
Our last dog was a chocolate lab.... friggin 4 legged stoach! She was a sweet heart and great with kids but, man, she could eat!
For lunch yesterday I diced up half of a pumpkin and half of a butternut squash for roasting.... it filled up a good sized plastic container, so I roasted some, put the rest in the fridge to cook later. The stuff I roasted yesterday I spiced with a little salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger... man it were delish.... Tonight for breakfast, I put some in a skillet and made a "hash", of sorts with the squash, mushrooms and diced chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, fried with bacon fat.... oh my tongue had a ball!! It was very tasty, and the fat and chicken left me feeling very satisfied.... I will be doing that one again!
On the dog front, the wife showed me a website for mastiff rescues..... the closest one is about 4 or 5 hours away..... looks I may me doing some traveling.... she "jokingly" mentioned we need 2 dogs..... a mastiff and a great dane.... my response was something along the line of "You really don't want any furniture in the house do you!?"
I did a dog-sitting for a friend of mine one time. They had a dauchshund and an akita, both knew me pretty well, and one day I went to feed them and after I let them out to go potty and back in to feed them, the akita got way to aggressive for my cofort level. The next day she wouldn't even let me in the house..... so my experince with akitas hasn't been the most possitive to be had.. Gorgeous dog though!
Yeah, some can be a worry. Mine are fantastic with people, but unfortunately not great with other animals, especially cats and small yappy dogs. My fault really, didn't socialise them well enough when they were young.
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
When I was a kid we had a lab x golden retriever. It ate everything from socks to the legs off our kitchen table to a strip of the carpet right up the middle of our stairs
lol.... sounds familiar! though ours never ate the carpet... When she was a pup, she chewed incessantly.... she went through 3 or 4 of those cow thigh bones they sell at pet stores... and she LOVED rawhide....
Me sister got a chocolate lab, lovely dog, softest thing I know, mind you the miniature yorky is a little basket....
Looks like your weekend is planned....
yeah, but the wife doesn't know that I am on call t work and we have a big gubmint inspection that starts next week, so I ain't going nowhere but work! Hell, I probably won't get any farm chores done either...
