    QuestionIf Labradors didn't exist, what would you choose?

    This is mostly a exercise in curiousity, since I have a black lab pup and wouldn't have made any other choice.

    A friend wanted to know what some of the other "friendly" breeds were good choices without entering into the tiny dog categories. Feel free to add to the list if you have suggestions.

    Most often Labs are compared, personality wise, to Golden Retrievers. Personally, if Labs did not exist, I would probably have a German Shorthaired Pointer or a Black and Tan Coonhound

    Well, considering Ken & I have a soft spot for Golden Retrievers and Siberian Huskys, it's safe to say it would be one of them.

    I'd probably have a few more beagles.

    Of the breeds you listed, probably a boxer or a poodle. My uncle has a standard poodle, and I swear that dog has a higher IQ than most humans! And boxers are just cute, if not gassy.

    Weims are cute, but they are very, very needy.

    If not a Lab then a golden or a Newfie.

    I voted for Weim, but have never had one. Am curious what needy means, since Lily is kind of needy so far, as well. Sometimes needy is cute or adorable, sometimes its a PITA.

    I agree on the Chessie. I actually considered rescuing a Chessie, but the nearest Chessie rescue to me is in New Hampshire.

    If not a Chessie, then it would be a boxer. Slobbery devils, but very lovable.

    Would never, ever pick some little "wanna-be"!

    A golden retriever would be my first choice.
