Chocolate labrador: or not?

Chocolate Labrador - Many families with children think about getting pets, but may put the idea on the back burner trying to think about which type of pet would be safe and fun for children in play. Here’s a true story that may help you make your choice.

In my childhood, the pet beloved by all in the neighborhood was Benny the chocolate Labrador. Benny had a sweet disposition, absolutely loved children and provided hours of fun and entertainment with his love of water, usually in the form of sprinklers and a bunch of kids.

Benny came from a long line of water loving dogs, rejoicing in a lake where he could practice his swimming and diving abilities. Benny’s ancestry bred an instinct of compassion and protectiveness towards people. Benny was so smart and sensitive.

There was a blind lady who lived down the street, and Benny always seemed to know when she ventured out with her cane to make her way to the mailbox. He’d stand by her side, in all his chocolate Labrador beauty, tail fluffy and friendly, guiding her along her way. Benny was the angel of chocolate Labradors. Even the color of his coat was comforting and lovable.

You may not know that the Labrador is the most popular family pet in the United States. They have gentle dispositions, are easy to train, of an obedient nature, loving and friendly, with an intelligent and companionable personality. These dogs learn quickly and respond enthusiastically to praise for their good deeds. Perhaps because of my own memories, the chocolate Labrador is so especially appealing, with all these wonderful characteristics.

They are watchdogs, but not necessarily guard dogs. They’ll let you know when a stranger approaches, but these are not attack dogs.

There is that soft spot in the heart for the chocolate Labrador, that just doesn’t go away. In the world of dog shows, it’s still a matter of controversy as to the color of the chocolate Labrador. To attain “show” quality, the chocolate Labrador must be pure in the chocolate coloring, without tan spots or brindling, of the pure chocolate Labrador shade. It seems a bit silly to be literally “splitting hairs” in the assessment of a good family pet.

If you’re debating which animal might make a good companion for your family, look in to the Labrador. Who knows that you might find another Benny, the chocolate Labrador who makes the perfect addition to your family
