About this deal

Pets create a wider family unit, and a Lab adds distinctive personality and an extra emotional dynamic. We weighed up the pros and cons of adopting and re-homing a dog but we decided with very young children we would take a dog from a puppy,' he said. They are doing that Labrador thing where they stare at you unblinkingly, dribbling in Pavlovian anticipation.

She accompanied me on photo shoots and TV shows but her greatest coup came when she helped find me a wife. Growing up above my father's veterinary surgery in central London we shared our flat with dogs, cats, parrots, veterinary nurses and an assortment of patients that would often spend the night. When we got married, the dogs took pride of place on top of the wedding cake (marzipan versions, not the ACTUAL dogs, that would have been interesting).

Ben visits Canada, discovers hair-raising stories of early Labrador exploits and uncovers stories of RNIB Labradors and Labradors at war, Labradors as working dogs and every other manifestation of the Labrador's character.The corgis may be the public face of the Queen’s canine companions but the Labrador is the private love of her life. So the Labrador has gone from being a fisherman's companion to a specialist wildfowl retriever to the world's most popular domestic dog. The son of a vet, I was surrounded by creatures great and small – parrots, rabbits, guinea-pigs, cats and, of course, plenty of dogs.

That would be literally the least help a dog could give if you were trying to get dressed and it kept removing items of clothing. So it is perhaps of little surprise to learn that Ben Fogle thinks Labradors make the most 'perfect' family pets. When Lady Carnarvon, owner of Highclere Castle (used in the series) invited me to tea, her own Labradors were marching around the house. People are said to look like their pets but perhaps that’s because we choose pets that look like us.Of course, this isn’t unique to the breed, but unlike bloodhounds, say, the Labrador has the distinction of following a scent for its own benefit. The anecdotes about the war dogs were, on the whole, not especially interesting, partially because they were just listed one after the other, with little unique about each one. It is probably fair to say that a chance meeting between the third Earl of Malmesbury (at the age of 75) with the sixth Duke of Buccleuch (1831–1914) and the 12th Earl of Home (1834–1918) saved the labrador from extinction. Love Island All Stars viewers praise Sophie Piper for 'snitching' on scheming Georgia Steel during secret flirty chat with Tom Clare: 'He's gonna tell the villa! They are like hairy ambassadors for the people we would like to be and this must be one reason families choose the Labrador as a role model for their children.
