Our Labrador, Lola, is a gentle and genial dog, who tolerates the younger dogs well when they clamber over her. She is an affectionate dog who is very partial to having her chest scratched, and is still keen to sit on one's lap no matter how often we tell her that she's getting a bit big for this really. She loves a long walk and having a bit of a dig when no-one's looking, or at least shouting, at her. She is the least vocal of the Labradors, although she does her best to join in when the bell ringers in the church next door are having their weekly practice, though she hasn't yet made the team.
Lola's first litter was 9 gorgeous F1 Labradoodles. We kept one of the litter, a girl called Donner. Just to clarify, as the double "n" indicates, she is named, slightly more classily, after Santa's Reindeer, not the kebab, although she would be happy to eat either. Donner is lively and fun, and has the rangy build most Labradoodles seems to possess, in contrast to our own middle aged figures. She is a very playful dog, who loves running around and gambolling into her pack mates, even if they sometimes seem less keen on this when she sends them flying.
