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!

What an adorable "family" . I have been SERIOUSLY considering one of the white blond goldens for my next golden. They are SO beautiful. I'm torn. I have never liked the reddish goldens. That's NOT golden. And I've heard they're trying to breed this out of the breed. I'm a little torn about the white ones, while they're beautiful, they're not golden. So I'm in a quandry. This goes to show goldens can love anyone, even cats. I've had a few people, VERY few, not like my Lucy. If you can't at least like, don't have to love them but at least like the friendliest golden on earth, a 12 year old senior, there is something seriously wrong with you. Also, any human Lucy ever growled at, I never trusted. Its serious when a golden doesn't like you as they love everyone.

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.
