Sure, there are lots of serious points that Labradors have in their favor. They’ve been the number one dog breed in America for the last 26 years, after all! But we think it’s time to take a look at the sillier reasons we love these big, goofy dogs.

Labradors combine trainability and intelligence with a great sense of humor, clumsiness, playful attitude, and a heart full of love for their families.
