That with how popular labs are people STILL seem to have this image of a perfectly calm dog that is very easy all of the time. Especially with Marley and Me and how popular that was. A friend is getting a dog and she texted me tonight about how they'd decided on a Labrador "because they're such a calm, easy, friendly dog" . Then I looked round my living room to see the German shepherd/ bc (soo high energy) entertaining himself with a bone, the springer ( are they not completely hyper?) cuddling my dad, the Jrt lying in front of the fire and the 3 labs wrestling with each other. Yep labs are always super calm lol Obviously this goes for most stereotypes but this one never ceases to amaze me that people still think labs are always super easy, calm dogs. Mine certainly can be but they are certainly full of life (even the 11 year old!).
