Cute, two natural enemies, the Lab and the fawn playing together. Look carefully and you can see a couple of kitties taking in the show.:) One perhaps troubling thing though. If the fawn is conditioned to accept all canines as friends it could cost it its life. Unknown is where the film was taken, but is it in Canada where there are wolves, if not, coyotes are widespread, and there are always hostile large dogs.

If only people could learn to act more like animals!

That's the problem -- too many already do.

Animals are simple, natural, true to their nature, there isn't a phony bone in their body! Humans are liars, manipulative, cruel and vindictive. Like I said:
if only humans could act more like animals!!!

Labs, to borrow a line, just wanna have fun.

Mine was happy go lucky, happy to be where ever I took her. Well behaved in all situations. I found her to have a great balance, energy wise, quiet while in doors but then very active once outside. Beach or moutains, she liked it all.

I got her as an adult dog that was a come back to the original breeder. She was very well acustomed to being around both cats and lots of other dog. She did not chase or bark at cats. And believe it or not, she cohabitated with a domesticated feral cat.

The only problem I had was when I first got her and put her on a lead. She pulled terribly. After taking a training class (which is mainly for training the people, not the dog), she became much easier to have on a leash when it was needed.

If you do get a lab, they need regular exercise. Living in San Diego, there are lots and lots of opportunities for hiking even within the urban areas. A favorite was dog beach in Del Mar. It never ceased to amaze me the large number of dogs that can run and play, either in a pack or just with their owner, and there's never a fight. Dog beach was far and away her favorite. You could tell by the smile on her face.

A last note about the breed: they are used quiet often as companion or aid dogs. There's a certain intelligence that labs have that I believe sets them apart.

As far as your potential 4 year old lab from the shelter, spend a lot of time with the dog. Let your feelings guide you if it would be a good match or not. And don't be surprised, if you do take the dog, how quickly you will bond.

I would have to agree with that. I had two black labs growing up and they were awesome. They have to be one of the best breeds of dog.

Even though that deer is but a babe, I'm thinking those rapid-fire kicks pack quite a wallop...that dog is lucky he didn't lose an eye or something...

Depending on the situation and your location, get some advice about training your new friend to avoid rattlesnakes.

i never let any of my dogs get in danger when i'm prospecting...i'm as careful with them as i am with myself..
this dog is magical though..he went to sleep last night in his bed and woke up in mine..

The fawn was just sparring and was not trying to strike the dog. But yes, an adult deers hooves can be deadly. A 200 pound buck can kill a dog the size of a Lab with those lightning fast strong kicks.
