In 2013 i.e. recently, I found a local pariah [street] dog puppy playing in the roadside and I brought it home. My wicked old grandmother told me to throw him outside but I did not listen to her.  For 8 to 9 months he stayed with me. But one problem was there and it was that he excretes in the home and therefore one day my grandmother secretly sent him somewhere with the help of my uncle. When I came to know about it I cried bitterly. Till today she didn't tell me where she left him. I miss my dog very much. Now I had decided to buy a yellow lab and I can gurantee one thing that no one can separate him from me.

    See I have owned 3 black labs, one still lives with me and 2 I gave to my 2 friends as they wanted dogs and their parents were not willing to pay keeping them. Was ok I daily meet them you won't have any problem with them  and try leaving your grandmother 2 days at old age home and then she will understand her mistake and even tell you where your dog is ;)

    It depends on the type of dog food and how much your pup weighs. There should be directions on the bag of food. Also depends on how much toast and treats you are giving. A treat now and then is OK but too much detroys a nutritional diet.

    Try the basics first.  Switch foods in case she is allergic.  Think about dog collars (do you have a pest control collar on her) and would she be allergic to that.  Do you spray her with anything - what do you bathe her with.  Think about anything that she can be around that is making her itch and change that.  Did you recently change her shampoo for instanse?  For some relief with itchy skin - for no reason I ever found out, I was told to use AVON Skin So Soft - I would bathe my dog and then use the AVON Skin So Soft and it did stop the itching - or at least she stopped scratching.

    It sure is a cute Chocolate Labrador! As you can see by the credits, the picture originated from Wiki Commons as a public domain photo. Perhaps they can help you find the owner. Good luck!

I have a 14-yr-old Black Lab, Noelle, that I love with my life. She has much gray on her muzzle (& elsewhere) now, but she is just as beautiful as the day we brought her home. She is very loving, affectionate, always striving to please & keeps the household in order reminding the other 3 pets of their place within. She often reminds them that she's 'the boss'. Many years ago my family had a female Black Lab, Misty, that lived almost 13 yrs. She came to live with me while I was on maternity leave until her death. We also had a beautiful, gorgeous female Golden Retriever, Amberlinn, who we lost at 4-1/2 yrs. old when my son was in 5th grade. A year or so after Amberlinn's death, we were so lucky to find the breeder who had Noelle's parents. I missed Amberlinn so desperately; I couldn't believe we had another beautiful little girl Labbie. I am an animal person having been raised with a combination of dogs, birds & fish & I feel that the Labbies truly fill your heart. While I would be very happily in love with many different breeds, there's just something that Labbies do to grab your heart; they are truly my top choice. I cannot imagine never living with a Retriever.

    It could be that she has a short coat. Since Goldens aren't like Poodles or Bichons, whose hair needs to be cut every 4 weeks because it keeps gnwoirg they do not shed their coats there isn't anything you can give her to encourage hair growth. However ..Thyroid disease is very common in Goldens and one of the side effects is a very poor coat. It will be dry and short and sometimes thin. Of course there are other symptoms but this is usually the first one owners don't usually associate it with anything 'medical' so it goes undiagnosed until other problems develop it is detected with a blood test. Dogs with thyroid disease are put on medication and once regulated their coat fills in and thickens up becoming shiny and healthy.

    Your lab is most likely passing gas due to what he is fed. Make sure you are feeding them a high quality dog food and not much (if any) people food. People food in general is not good for dogs. Lots of carbohydrates including starches and fibers can cause them to not digest their food all that well and cause gas. Also, if they swallow too much air while gulping down food, this can also cause gas.

    My dobie did this quite a bit and it was the food. Big Time. I called the breeder and she recommended Eukanuba and said that is what she fed. I fed Euknuba to all my dogs after that and no problem.

    Thanks Karen for the great tips and reminders. I've nocetid a huge difference in the dogs I was caring for when I cut down on their dog food and added a mixture of rice, veggies and other leftovers such as beef juices when I made a roast. The dogs that had skin issues cleared up and the older ones seemed to be more energetic. Just like with us, too much junk food isn't good for them.
