I love the retreiver breeds. I've had both Labs and Chesapeakes. Gi Gi and I have an African Grey parrot named Shadow. He also loves the water :) X.
I've had retrievers for years including the best dog I've ever had- a lab Chessie mix. Bailey is the first one to love the water to the point of being a pain. You have to watch her like a hawk on the day we leave or you end up riding home with a wet dog.
such fun .. i wanna dog!!!!!!!
Daryl, Have I got the dog for you...take Buddy. Please.
