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!

We have the same lifejacket for our standard poodle. When he had tail surgery, he wouldn't leave the wound alone, no matter how big of a collar he had. At wits' end, we put on his Outwardbound Life Jacket and it was just enough to limit his flexibility so that he couldn't get at his wound. So, in fact, it did save his life, just not in the water!

This is actually a life jacket. Terrific invention for dogs. I use a harness on my Lucy with the hook in the center of the back sort of how this handle is located. From the moment I put that on her she loved it and never pulled once. I feel ANY attachment involving the neck is 100% wrong. How would YOU like something around your throat all the time. Just because its always been around doesn't make it right. I tried the halti around her nose, she never hated anything so badly in her life. We would spend the entire walk with her trying to get it off. She never would adjust to it. Put the body harness on her, instant perfectly walking. They know what is right. If you're going to be putting your young pup in water, this is a must.

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.
