Hi there. I am new and wanted to introduce my 6 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever, Belgian. Belgian is of the show lines/ english variety. I will admit he didn't come from the best breeder but I was young and naive when I got him and so far he has been the best dog out there for me and I treasure every minute with him. I love training dogs and Belgian is such a great example of what the Labrador should be. He loves children and would die to be with him. He has taught me so much about the Labrador Retriever and has established a forever interest in them for me. He lives for water too and loves to hike which has been a newly discovered thing for him. He has his CGC amd I hope to eventually get him to be a therapy dog as he has grown up with senior citizens and children of all ages throughout his life. He doesn't care about wheelchairs or walkers as long as he gets to spend time with the person who is using it. He is extremley gentle and loves everyone. However he is also suprisingly a great guard dog. I actually had someone jump over my fence ( friend who wanted to scare me > ) and Belgian went outside and pulled him off the fence and dragged him across the yard growling and refused to let go until I told him to. He is my best friend and is much more then I could ever ask for in a dog. Something had happened in my past which left me literally traumatized where I could never be alone and was literally afriad of my own shadow. Once I got him he helped me overcome those fears and without him I would of never been able to do the things I do today.
So I just wanted to say hi and I am sure you will see alot of Belgian and I around. I love to take pictures so I am sure you will get to see alot of him too.
Yes I am a photoholic.
