I had a pair of Labs as puppies. They chewed the bottoms off of all my kitchen drawers... But they were the best dog, in two bodies. Lady B lived to fetch, and her sister, Nightcap, was the prototypical fireplace dog. She had no interest in chasing anything unless it was alive. She chased a squirrel 9 feet up a tree, once. That was an interesting rescue. Both, though, loved cats.

My son just adopted an albino pit bull terrier. She's absolutely adorable, but SO MUCH ENERGY! She's the Belle of the Dog Park. Loves EVERYBODY, and everybody loves her... Except she'd be illegal to own in several local communities and many apartment complexes. It complicated his search for a new home.
