Labradors and Golden Retrievers are the most popular dogs in so many countries across the world, and it’s easy to see why. They are loads of fun, people-oriented, obedient yet curious and have a sharp intelligence that still shines through beneath their hilariously goofy nature.

Originating in Newfoundland, where they were first bred to help fishermen and hunters to retrieve their nets and catch, Labradors are now commonly used as guide-dogs and comfort animals for the disabled. Golden Retrievers are very similar to Labs, with slight differences between British, American and Canadian types. They are all high-energy dogs, so they need plenty of exercise! They do love a cuddle as well though, and are always eager to please their humans. That why we love them so much!

Scroll down to see some of the cutest Labs and Golden Retrievers, compiled into a list by Bored Panda, and let us know what you think in the comments. Do you have a Labrador or Golden Retriever yourself? Feel free to share pics and stories too!

That white kitten looks sick. Look at its eyes.

I can't even see it that clearly (could just be its markings), but I'm sure whoever was caring for them was aware... kittens sometimes get sick, you take them to the vet, and they hopefully get better. So I'm not sure what your point is?

We have had two sets of Golden’s, each, a male and female. I believe they should always have a companion so when not home they have each other. They are smart, gentle with small children, loving them, and fun ! We raise and train with gentleness and everyone who meets them think they are great and fun M.

On occasion, when I drive to work, there is a guy who walks 5 Goldens that have beautiful coats and are amazingly kept. He must be the handler for this little pack. This picture reminds me of them. They just want to play! play! play! .... With the ball or a kitten will do just fine, too!

I have four dogs who are lab mix. Since we’ve had them, we’ve gotten a few kittens. Every time we bring in a new kitten, they go nuts - in a good way - grooming it, following it around, basically bringing it into the pack. It really is the cutest thing ever.

Good human. Suggestion: take him for casual walks and waits in the vet clinic waiting room. Get him used to the places. so when he has to go it will be familiar already = less stress on you and him.

This dog and me are probably brother at some level, coz his and mine relationship with food seems to be same. Always looking out for more, no matter what other things are going around.
