When wildlife photographer Villager Jim first set eyes on a litter of nine chocolate labradors, one in particular caught his eye. Despite having two black labradors at home already, Jim knew he had to have one more--Barnaby. In his hilltop farm in the beautiful Peak District area of Derbyshire, in the north of England, Jim and his wife have long since given up any hope of having first option on the sofa, while Barnaby and sisters Dilly and Bumble make full use of the farm's facilities. There are chickens to chase, vegetables to be uprooted, and plenty of opportunities to sunbathe on conveniently-placed benches-or even in the flowerbeds. In between walks and playtime, there is lots of snoozing to be done, and no amount of awkward positions or insufficiently large laps will deter them. The labrador retriever is the most popular dog breed in both the UK and the US. They are known for their intelligence, loyalty, and gentleness, and also (perhaps unfairly) for their greed. It's no wonder that they make such wonderful pets, and such wonderful models for photography!

This colorful book aims to answer all of the questions Lab owners wonder about their breed, including: Why do Labs come in three colors? Why do Labs eat grass? Why do Labs look like they’re smiling? Why do they love to play, and why do they make such good service dogs? These are just a few of the over forty interesting Lab behaviors that are lightheartedly and thoroughly explained in this fun and insightful volume.

L.B. Johnson knew how to get things done. She had been immersed in a world of complex puzzles, and tangled story lines of physical and governmental laws. She was quite sure she was up to the task of raising a black Labrador retriever puppy. His name was Barkley, and in being himself, he led his owner down a path of joyful discovery, loving frustration, and self-sacrifice. Their journey together will speak volumes to anyone who has ever had a beloved animal as a heart’s companion…from the gentle nuzzles that healed in moments of crisis, to the saintly patience needed to deal with a small pink ball with feet, named “Mr. Squeaky,” who interrupted many hours of sleep. It is the story of rambunctious trespasses such as “the bacon incident,” and the loving trust that bound a woman and her dog together in unspoken understanding. The Book of Barkley is a tribute and memoir that will resonate with everyone who has reached out unthinking to pet a beloved animal…only to remember that a beloved friend is no longer present. Honest, transcendent, and beautifully written, The Book of Barkley is a love story that will enrich every animal lover’s library.

A social history of Labradors, and how they have become the world s most beloved dogs, by writer, presenter and long-time dog lover Ben Fogle, whose beloved black Labrador, Inca, famously accompanied him on numerous journeys and adventures. Native to Newfoundland, where they worked side-by-side with fishermen, then brought to England in the 1800s by English ships, Labradors are not only popular as a family companion but also excel in hunting, tracking, retrieving, guiding and rescuing. In this unique first social history of the Labrador, Ben Fogle investigates what makes Labradors so beloved and why they are considered so trustworthy 30 per cent of dogs used as guide dogs in the UK by The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association are Labradors, for instance. They have an extraordinary capacity for companionship, intelligence, work ethic, and loyalty. With stories of RNIB Labradors and Labradors at war, Labradors as working dogs and every other manifestation of Labrador/human interaction, Ben writes engagingly and passionately about our lasting love for one of man s best friends and companions. Exploring their origin, early characteristics, their use as gun dogs, as therapy dogs, as police dogs, as search and rescue dogs and last and absolutely not least as family pets, Ben draws on the extraordinary experiences we have encountered with Labradors to tell the story of a dog breed which has captured our imagination and love for hundreds of years."

From wonderful wild deer to breathtaking buzzards and other birds of prey, Jim allows us a glimpse of his daily moorland travels with all the abundant wildlife that lives in that part of the world. Jim often concedes that it is his most favorite place on earth, being out alone with his camera within this unforgiving landscape, watching the sun rise on the horizon, whilst at the same time, seeing stags wander, grazing on the moorland. It is here also that many of his favorite birds of prey abound. And, of course, he is there to capture the beautiful landscape shots rolling in mists or washed in the golden light of dawn.

First there are Dilly and Bumble, his labrador “sisters†, then there’s Bobbin the Robin who visits the bird table every day. The friendly donkeys he meets on his walk are always interested in what he has to say, but the deer steer clear of him, even though he’s on the leash. The Highland cows that belong to dad’s friend are just a little bit scary—those long horns, all that hair—but the chickens are always up for a game of “chase me†.

Offers new perspective and guidance for women who wish to maintain their marriage or relationship Men in their middle years, like well-fed Labradors, are the very essence of calm and predictability.

This simplistic treatise is intended as a useful guide to women (or those assuming the role thereof) who, for one reason or another, wish to maintain a marriage or a relationship with someone of the male sex after the initial bloom has gone off the rose. This book is perfect for the man of the house, as he can suggest (but never recommend) that the wife might enjoy reading it.
