I lived with Teddy and Beth for a couple of years. True to the lovely nature of the Labrador, they got on just fine with my 3 hounds, although there was always competition for space on the bed. Four Labs, a Jack Russell and two sleeping humans just didn't fit!
Teddy was the scariest dog on the block and alerted us to would-be burglars one night - we knew not to open the door because he was doing his most ferocious I-WILL-EAT-YOU-IF-YOU-COME-THROUGH-THIS-DOOR routine.
Gentle and kind with the kids, they are best friends to Charlotte and Devon.
