We have had Zeke, our Chocolate Lab, for four years and he is definitely a member of our family. Growing up we always had animals. Never had to buy them as they just seemed to appear at our house. Perhaps because of all the eleven kids plus all the neighborhood children seem to stay at our house. But, to the point, dogs were never allowed in the house.
Anyway, my very first dog was Geo was a Tibetan Terrier, black and white, and was adorable. We were lucky enough to adopt Geo from the Arlington, VA pound. Geo was the first dog ever allowed in my house. As I was known as a clean freak, my family was surprised that I allowed a dog to stay inside. Well, we had Geo for seven years and he died of cancer.... broke my heart!
Years later, I retired from the Federal Government and we moved to Lewisburg, WV, and I started my real estate career again with Coldwell Banker. September 2009, I listed one of my neighbors house and they had a chocolate lab...Zeke!
One day Mr. Seller says to me, "Rebecca do you want a dog". He said, “I go to work very early and work late every night and my wife has bad knees and can not walk Zeke”. Although they had a dog fence, and had a doggie dog in the garage .... Zeke was eating the roots of their bushes and trees. He was lonely and wanted to be walked. I immediately said no because I did not want a BIG dog in my newly built home.
When I got home that evening I told my my husband, Claude, about Zeke. Goodness he was so excited and said, “Rebecca, call the sellers and say yes we want the chocolate lab.” He has always wanted a chocolate lab. So, I called and they were so delighted and knew Zeke would be well cared for and have a good home.
Mr. seller brings Zeke the next day, his cage, dog leash, toys, food, and papers. At first, we kept Zeke in his cage and walked him every day and played “catch” in our big yard. As time went on, Zeke stayed in the house more and more with us..... as he is just a joy to have around.
Jump to December, the winter was so cold and we did not want to leave Zeke in the garage. Well, Zeke was an inside dog from then on. We have a bed inside the house and out in the garage as well. Zeke is always following me around the house....my husband just laughs at him. But, I love it. Zeke is an incredible dog, and has a gentle and affectionate nature. He is intelligent, keen, friendly and biddable with a strong will to please.
At the time we got Zeke, I didn’t know that Labrador Retrievers are the most popular dog breeds. The Labrador has a need to please, which indicates why this dog breed can be regarded as the ultimate family dog. The face of a Labrador evokes the most adoration, perhaps more specifically his ability to express his love of life, understanding and affection through a gentle look or delicate movement.
So that is how we got our beloved chocolate lab, Zeke!
If you are thinking about getting a dog, here is what you should know about Labrador Retrievers:
Makes a wonderful family pet and excellent with children;
A good choice for novice owners;
Acclimates well to most climates;
Does not require trimming;
Very little grooming required ( although we brush Zeke weekly),
Easy to train,
almost forgot.... they are just darn lovable!
