Labradors are great breeds, but cross them and you get a super breed
Both our dogs were 'unwanted' dogs that we took in - they were too hyper as puppys - the small one is a Jack Russell X........well a mongrel really, but her original owner told us she was a 'full' Jack Russell....she has the attitude but certainly not the looks!!
I would love another Lab, Drew is like you say 'soft', he honestly wouldn't hurt a fly; in fact we have seen a frog jump from his mouth before today completely unharmed - we're positive that he must have thought it was a toy, and it was only the confused look on his face that made us realise he had something in his mouth!! He follows us everywere, he really believes we are his pack, and when we put him in the boot of the car he pops his head through the barrier and crys to be up front with us.

Sorry, I could talk about the dogs all day!

We have a 6 year old labradoodle we want to bring with us next year. Best get on with the requirements now. I don't think we need the rabies shot now I read?

Unless they have changed thinks, our dog needed it and he could only fly out on 19th Dec as he only had it in June...if you check the biosecurity website I think it's called it will tell you!

Friends have a labradoodle - love them and no moulting....like we will have with ours since he has Coe from winter in UK to summer here! Hopefully e will leave it all in quarantine

How are they finding the heat? We are looking for a cooling mat for ours as he will be in the house during the day whilst we are at work. In quarantine he was constantly panting and drinking water! If any one know where we can get a large cooling mat from....we would love to know...seem loads in UK but not here strangely....wouldn't have even crossed our minds in the uk!!

That sounds perfect if you are thinking may time as it will give you a few weeks when you are here to get sorted before your dog comes out!

We heard that too and at lot of agents turned us away without looking at anything, but when found good agent in browns bay and found somewhere very quick. Have a look back through the thread as you will read what worked for us.

Had my labradoodle vaccinated on Monday just in case we go this year. Vet recommended the Pet Travel Service in Fife for Scottish folk.

Great you have the vaccinations done!

We picked our dog up on Mon and he is fabulous, seems to have taken it all in his stride, though understandable following us round everywhere!!

Great to hear that it works out. Someone suggested we not take her and we were horrified!

Not surprised. I would be too.

She is part of your family.
