    I walked home from the park tonight with another bloke and his dogs, and he told a story about how his son is getting a chocolate lab puppy and his son's gf doesn't like dogs...

    I said - first choice of dog for a not-dog fan would be a cavalier king Charles - or maybe a pug... it's going to be interesting.

    But after reading this thread again... and the updates... maybe the gf can come to love a choc lab. Not sure that I could. Well maybe if I trained it. Haven't met many well trained ones.

    Sean I actually think Hyacinth has given you some excellent advice on how to convince your wife... Which you conveniently overlooked... : take up vacuming. Or cleaning. Best you take up both. I reckon she was spot on with that

    I'm yet to meet anyone who could dislike a little Labrador puppy. I bet that girl caves in to the cuteness straight away.

    The success with a lab puppy depends on the experience of the owners. My non knowledge 30 or so years ago with a lab puppy and a toddler was a dismal failure. I had no idea and had to rehome the dog with my sister.

    My son made the same mistake as I did and his was also rehomed to a better one and he got guinea pigs for the kids.
    He wishes he had talked to me before getting the puppy for his kids.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Well if she really does not like dogs it could become a battle of priorities. A friend of mine told me this story about one of his friends. This guy was engaged to this girl overseas. They had planned a very fancy wedding in a very fancy and romantic city in Europe. He went overseas to help with the preparations and one week later my friend got a txt from him: 'I'm on my way home Wedding is off.'
    As it turned out fiance hat a large dog. And would like groom - very sure of himself - said to her: "Honey I'm not going to have such a big dog in the house, it's either me or the dog...' My friend said when his mate arrived at home he was still very confused and did not really understand what had actually happened.

    LOL at "the wedding is off"...

    I guess I shouldn't but something similar happened to some friends of mine. They were happily shacked up for a while and then decided "why not get married" (worst reason ever). They had some fundamental differences eg he did not like her German Shepherd and her GSD did not like him. And of course - asking her to get rid of the dog, would be like asking her to get rid of her child.

    Other things went wrong and they were split up within 3 weeks of getting married.

    Both Bruno and Serena sleep in the house. They are free to have the run of the house day and night. Bruno, however, is in chew everything mode and is tearing the place apart. Michelle, my wife, wants them both to sleep outside together come spring/summer and warmer temperatures. They will still be allowed inside with us until they have to go to bed. The problem is that they are soooooo comfortable inside that I am loath to transition them to outside living. I did forget to let them in one night and they happily slept outside together in the kennel and didn't seem worse for wear, although they bolted straight in soon as I opened the door to the house.
    we'll see come summer.

    OMG there is no way i could have one dog inside and one outside, I would feel so guilty everytime the outside dog looked at me! I can't play favourites. But then when its cold and wet outside I start feeling sorry for all the kangaroos out there and want to go outside offering warm blankets and tell them to sleep under the porch. I'm hopeless
