The Labrador Retriever originates from Newfoundland in Canada and was originally known as the St John’s Dog, after the capital city of the province.

Shaving a Lab for routine maintenance is just WRONG. As you can see, I feel very strongly about this issue. Some people feel they must shave their Lab because all that hair must make the dog hot.
