It was very good though. I read it very quickly on a weekend away (it was my sister's book and I was sneaking a read when she wasn't looking) I must get a copy and read it again at a more leisurely pace, but newish baby is hampering my leisure time at the moment.

I loved it to.

We had to put our golden lab down earlier this year. She was dp's faithful companion through thick and thin, and I only knew her for her last few years. This book brought back lovely memories of her, and has made me think about getting another dog.

I suggested to dp that he should read it, but he couldn't face it sad

I believe they are making a film of it. Owen Wilson was going to be in it, but had to pull out of it.

Sound of penny dropping.......this is the one about the naughty golden lab in the US isn't it!?

As the owner of a choclate lab & goldie retriever I shall look forward to empathising with some of the situations!!

My first dog growing up was a yellow lab called Bruce. He used to escape regular to walk alongside mums with prmas and be all protective. He was like a bear.

We had a lab/GSD cross called Toby who used to lie protectively round the pram when the DD's were small. If ANYONE he didn't know came near he used to growl fiercely &yet he was a soppy date with us all. He died of cancer at 10. We now have a choccy lab called BoCo & a goldie called Milie, both daft as brushes but very good family pets.

Sorry Awen this has turned into a lab appreciation thread!! grin
