Having been sent overboard in a heavy sea to fetch the cap of one of the crew, the young dog spent two hours in the water before he could be picked up again, by which point he was so exhausted the sailors had to revive him with brandy. Again, this kind of thing happens repeatedly, sometimes as blatantly as that, and sometimes across chapters - the almost never-ending explanation of the differences between working and show Labradors was a real treat. Kind, loyal, diligent, hardworking, biddable, gentle and faithful: I may be biased, but it’s no surprise that the Labrador is by far the most popular breed in the UK and indeed the world.

So in recognition of the world’s favourite dog, Ben Fogle celebrates the loyal, companionable, honest and ever-hungry lab we all know and love. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. 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. Not only great family companions, they also excel at hunting, tracking, retrieving, guiding and rescuing. Marcus Rashford 'went on a 12-hour tequila bender in Belfast' as he was spotted in nightclub last week.

The fact that they'll eat anything, even my flip-flops, and that they shed a tsunami of moulted fur that clogs up the house like tumbleweed each spring and autumn only endears them to me further.

They were originally fishing dogs, whose ancestors came from the Portuguese cod trawlers that worked the Grand Banks off Newfoundland in Canada (despite the name, they do not actually originate from Labrador, Canada’s northerly mainland region). A Labrador wouldn’t dream of missing the opportunity to say hello and will always give strangers the benefit of the doubt. This could well have signalled the end of the Scottish lineage of the labrador retriever were it not for the sixth Earl of Malmesbury who “gave them a pair, descended from our own imported dogs”. He campaigns tirelessly for conservation, the environment and animal welfare, is an ambassador for WWF, Medecins Sans Frontier and Tusk, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the President of the Campaign for National Parks.I have always taken a keen interest in dogs and their health and as a dog owner we have a responsibility.

In keeping with the need for historical accuracy, a Lab, Roly, was cast as Lord Grantham’s dog Pharoah in Downton Abbey. Decent mix of interesting early breed history, more recent history and wonderful achievements of the breed, and Ben Fogle's own Lab stories and passion. For me they're the complete package, and it's no surprise that they're by far the most popular breed of dog in the UK, and indeed the world. It still seems amazing to me that some of the world’s most prolific swimming dogs came from some of the world’s coldest water. A god book that could have been so much better with some stricter editing and rewriting here and there.Ben has written a wonderful book of beautiful Labrador anecdotes through history, with some actual history thrown in… but I would dearly like to attack this book with a red editing pen.

Indeed, the problems with Percy, the Carnarvons’ Labrador, meant that Roly was ‘killed off’ between series one and two. The number of Labradors worldwide is estimated to be in the millions and they have overwhelmingly topped the most popular breed list in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia for decades.However, I had troubles with the text now and then, had to reread sentences to really understand what Fogle meant. This could well have signalled the end of the Scottish lineage of the Labrador, were it not for the third Earl of Malmesbury, who 'gave the duke a pair, descended from our own imported dogs' and the bloodline was continued when they were mated with the duke's dogs. Five bitter rows EVERY couple has - but can easily solve: The world's top relationship therapists (who've.
