Jag and Rover Double My Pleasure!

When I think about Jag, a pleasantly plump black lab,

and his tennis ball obsessed yellow lab brother, Rover, a huge smile comes across my face because they are the most enthusiastic dogs I have ever met. They simply overflow with excitement from the moment I close my car door and make my journey up the steps to their front door; the dogs are not only squealing, they are yelping with pure joy at the thought of charging past me to run into the yard.

You would think that a greeting from two labs who weigh at least 80 pounds each would intimidate a wiry 100-something pound dog walker but instead I welcome the sloppy wet kisses and the huge front paws that find their way to my shoulders with intense delight.

I am fully aware that many dog trainers and dog owners would reprimand me for allowing Jag and Rover to be so rambunctious but since their owners are on a desert island far, far away, these pups need all the love and attention they can get! Don't you agree?


  1. I'm thinkin' that it is just fine for those big guys to be all excited and happy when they get some attention. They are prolly just lettin' you know how happy thay are to see you.

  2. I have 2 bullmastiffs. Talk about a lot of dog around the house!

    New follower in the house here! Hope to hear back from you soon.

    Lots of yummy love,

  3. Hi there.
    Stopping by from Tuesday Tag-a-long to say hello.
    My lab is sleeping on my feet right now :)

    Have a great day!

  4. I think some enthusiasm is okay, but as a person who had to train some very bad behaviors out of my dog after they were taught to her by others, I can see the flip side, too. As long as they don't get out of control, I'm okay with it!

  5. Jag and Rover looks like fun puppys! I wishes I could play with thems.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  10. We wish our human was on an island far, far away so we could cause some trouble!

  11. Well, just don't know bouts all this traaining stuff, I thinks it's kinda weird. I don't know why hoomans want to waste their time training....or waste mine fur that fact...hehehe! If my pawrents left me fur a deserted island I'd be happy to see somebuddy too. Then again, if they went to a deserted island it was prolly to gets away from me...hehehe

  12. The bigger the dog the better, that's what I say....
