It depends on the lines. Field lines tend to be smaller and slimmer, so they don't overheat while running around in the grass, and you don't put your back out trying to get them in the boat. Show lines are big and THICK.seen two different labradors yesterday and they were so much smaller fully grown (i asked their owners if they were) than my old yellow lab was in height and body size did the breed shrink?
thanks my lab was a good 120 pounds or soIt depends on the lines. Field lines tend to be smaller and slimmer, so they don't overheat while running around in the grass, and you don't put your back out trying to get them in the boat. Show lines are big and THICK.
But also, the breed standard is (and always has been) 55-80 pounds, and I think for a while the pet breeders were breeding for a much larger dog, maybe people preferred larger dogs at that point. I keep hearing from people who say their Lab they had when they were a kid was something like 150 pounds, and, dude, that was no Lab, that was a Newfie! Lol. And now most people tend to prefer smaller dogs, it seems.
My Lab was from hunting lines and weighed 55 pounds, 60 at a certain age when she got a bit matronly.
Yes, that's what I meant. My neighber had problems with her legsProbably she means a physical device that sprung up when someone opened the box. I've seen a lot of different versions. Informed Delivery just tells you what's coming; it doesn't tell you when it gets delivered.
They make it seem as if she keeps Hobbit from them when it is really just that they rarely want to see him and go months without wanting to see him or even calling/texting to check on him. She has a CPO against Hobbit's father (I will call him Jay) because he beat her up and then threatened to "shoot up" her apartment with her and Hobbit in it. He is only permitted to contact her if it has to do with Hobbit. For the first year of Hobbit's life, she would call/text Jay asking him if he wanted to see Hobbit. The 1 time out of 100 that he actually took Hobbit, he has never taken him on his own. He has always gone to his sister's house or his mother's. (His sister has seen Hobbit the most out of any of them, but Jay has only gone to see him there a couple of times.)Three-fourths of the time that any of them has actually taken Hobbit, they have called her and told her she needed to come and get him. Even with all of that, Jay has constantly threatened to take Hobbit from her and run off. One minute they are calling her and telling her she has to get him because he is "too much" for them. The next, they are sending texts saying they are not returning him and she will have to go through the court to get him. (She has sole custody.)The worst of it happened last Christmas when, after telling her that she had to get Hobbit, they stopped replying to her texts and phone calls for three hours. The last thing she got was a text from Jay saying, "Good luck getting him back." (Jay does not want him. He only meant to scare her.) She got the police involved.Omg! Definitely get a court order!!! I'm livid just reading that. Car seat safety is a huge one for me, and a BAR?????
I hope your daughter doesn't cave! Hobbit's father has the right to see him, but that doesn't extend to grandparents, especially ones that won't respect your daughter's authority as mom and put him in unsafe situations.
This is what I was thinking, maybe even for the grandparents. They can't do a ton of damage with a court supervisor right there. And that's easier to get than trying to keep them from having no contact, and makes your side look reasonable in court. Plus it's annoying enough that they probably won't bother.he needs to take her to court for visitation. She knows that if he does he will likely get supervised visitation.
