Hello, I came upon this site while researching the average life span of a lab. We adopted Nico when he was 4, and he will be turning 9 this summer. He is still just as energetic, and I was relieved to see all the posts about older labs! My daughter is 12, and very attached to him. He has slept in her bed since we got him, and he took away her fear of dogs. She used to be afraid of dogs, especially ones that would jump. Nico does not jump, and is always so patient. Well, unless someone says "out" or "walk" or "poop" or "car ride!" Nico is a bundle of energy and quite neurotic, but he has a heart of gold!
Welcome! Where are you located! Nico is a handsome boy! I am glad he is healthy and I hope you have many years left with him.

Hi am welcome! I am new here too, but seems like there are new people almost daily! Nico is gorgeous!
Enjoy every day that you have Nico. He is a beautiful dog. I love his face. The time goes so fast. I cannot believe that Jack is 4 now. He was a puppy just a short time ago. Welcome to the forum.
