If you like long coats, get a flat coated retriever. They look like labs with long hair!!

My mom is more OK then, she likes the look and size. I saw one, Vanna, at a shelter near my home. She was SOOOO hyper. She was barking, and whining, and just wanted to play so badly. Eventually she calmed down, and my dad and I had tog o so we couldn't take her out, but while we were leaving we saw a family take her out to go to a play pen, and the volunteer was on her heels digging into the concrete to keep her from running off with the leash. And even with the high green fence of the playpen I saw her head jumping up and down! They are SOO energetic!
