Someone started this post on a lab forum...I really liked it so here are mine:


Born: Jan 1, 2003, Slovakia
Brought home/adopted: at approx 1 year

Likes: Fetching and Swimming are tied for number one. Driving in the car is a close second.

Dislikes: being crowded, going out in the rain

Least endearing quality: sometimes he gets whiny (the poor dog groomer has to listen to him whine the whole time he is there)

Most endearing quality:
Kaper doesn't get excited much, but it is so worth it when he does. He is extremely smart and very loving

CHATHAM (non-GSD but have to be fair)
Labrador Retriever, chocolate

Born: August 14, 2006; Nova Scotia
Brought home: at 8 weeks

Likes: eating, lying right on top of me, drives in the car, swimming and tormenting his big brother, Kaper (Kaper LOVES to fetch, Chatham just loves to get the ball or stick and have Kaper chase him for it. Poor Kape just wants to get the ball back so he can bring it to me to be thrown again)...not necessarily in that order

Dislikes: Not being paid attention to and not being allowed to sleep in the bed.

Least endearing quality: his gas...although I can't help but laugh when he walks up the stairs or puts his two paws up on your lap and some slips out

Most endearing quality:
If I cry (not that I do alot or anything), he does this really cute look with a head tilt and wags his tail when I look at him. If I hide my face, he will hit me with his paw to get my attention
He is ALWAYS happy, the tail never stops.
He loves being with me

Travis Barker [Travis]

Born: March 28, 2005
Brought home/adopted: 7 weeks

Likes: Being with me, playing any kind of game that allows him to run around at top speed, eating, barking, fetch [though he rarely gives the ball back so its more like 'Chase' ] , performing tricks for treats [it's hilarious to watch how excited he gets to do the tricks], bugging his brother and sister.

Dislikes: being ignored, not being allowed to play, water that is anywhere other than his water dish or pool, being scolded by anyone other than me [if someone else scolds him he'll come lay in my lap and pout]

Least endearing quality: he's very vocal. Especially out in public. and sometimes he is the BIGGEST baby ever. I 've definitely babyed him a little too much.

Most endearing quality: He is such a goofball. He makes me laugh everyday and there is never a dull moment with Trav around. His big sloppy kisses that he loves to give. His smarts. and loyalty.
