The Plight of a Labrador Owner
Labrador owners, especially yellow lab owners, go through three different stages of ownership.
Stage One: Stock up on every brand of de-fuzzing agent known to man. From rolls of extra strength duct tape to Costco packs of Lint rollers and everything in between.
Stage Two: Buy clothes in colors that will compliment your labradors hair color so it doesn’t stand out when it gets rooted into the fabrics of everything you own. Black is most definitely OUT, you should see my Northface fleece – it’s now looks gray thanks to all the hair interwoven into it.
And I’ve tried everything including taking a Furminator to it… no joy.
Stage Three: Accept that no matter what you do, you labrador will commandeer anything you let lay on the floor for more than five minutes.
“It smellz like Mom, must cuddles with it.”
Step Four (Cause who’s really counting?) : Love that squishy face no matter what, cause after three years this habit of his isn’t going to change. That blue fleece jacket he’s laying on is officially his…

Hound dog owners go through the same thing – too bad we have a black and tan hound and an orange cat – EVERYTHING we own shows fur!
But those doggies are 100% love! 🙂
It's the same problem as having two cats that (1) between them cover whites, blacks, browns, and orange and (2) their favorite napping spot is on clean clothes – that were JUST defurred.
All for the love of furry little kids!
PS: I have lint rollers in the bedroom, by the front door, in my car, and at work.
Got a blonde lab, a black lab/blue heeler mix, and a red lab/chow mix. No out fit without dog fur is complete at my house.
growing up we had a black lab. she was the best dog ever. so devoted and protective. it was sad when she passed away when i was in college.
Aw, what a sweet pooch! We have a wonderful yellow lab, too…they are the BEST! But you're so right about the black clothes!
Megan he is absolutely adorable! Sooooooo cute!
I need more Huck in my life. That pupper is adorable.
Oh, my, you sure do have it right. We got our yellow lab pup in Washington last spring – our first lab – we had basset hounds for years. Everything you said is true — the shedding – Chucky just about makes a new dog every week — the clothes – I bought slippers and fleece jackets the color of Chucky. At Christmas we took my Mom a new outfit to wear while Chucky was visiting her home! But the love and companionship are so worth it all!! Long live our labs…
