If this has been asked recently, forgive me. I couldn't find it on a quick search. I have a yellow Lab. Over 100 pounds, dumb as the day is long...I mean DUMB as the day is long, very loyal, very friendly. Starting to get territorial. Just curious what kinds of dogs other folks have. The Lab was hubby's idea. When I was growing up, we always had mutts around (Bassett Hound/Doberman mix, Chow/Sheepdog/Something mix, you get the idea). They seemed to live longer and had less problems than the purebreds. Most folks around here have mutts too. Although I"m noticing a big increase in Australian Shepherds and Cattle Dogs and the like.
