30 – Why Are You a Labrador Retriever?

That’s right, we finally did it; the most popular dog in the world! Or at least the United States (for 27 consecutive years) and Canada. As the most popular dog in the US, there’s a lot of information out there which means this is our longest episode yet. This is one of the uniquely all around (North) American dogs around. By that, I mean it wasn’t brought over from Europe or anywhere else.

The lab has had many jobs, and some of them may surprise you. Did you know they’re excellent dog tug boats? I bet you didn’t. There’s also two types of labs. Which is confusing, because why not make it two different dogs? There are two different types of corgis, but only one Labrador? Buckle up and get ready for the fascinating history of the Lab.
