  1. This article’s is awesome, and informative, I have black Labrador age 1year and 5months, she’s so sweet and loveable her name is ZETA.

  2. In 1984 I got my first yellow lab, I named her after my sons favorite sport, so her name was hoops! 6 months later from the same breeder but a different mother I got myself a dog I named her Mysteek. We lost them 2 years ago but those 14 and a half to 15 years were the best!

  3. My yellow lab’s name was Dash. We used to call him “Dash the Crash”! I had him for 12 years, since he was a baby. His mother was my sister’s yellow lab’s only litter. He was one of the best things of my life!
