First, I love Labs but I have also owned other breeds of dogs. When the book and movie "Marley & Me" came out everyone I knew would tell me I'd have to read or go see the movie and my reply was always "not funny when it happens to you". So why would I get another lab or recommend one (especially to a family with kids) - because they are very loyal, very loving and very protective dogs. I always knew if my husband was home or if the FedEx guy was coming to the door because my Lab had a different bark for each person. I never felt alone or scared with him around. However, like most dogs they do need a lot of attention otherwise you will find them chewing on your shrubs or running through your tomato plants.
