    Americans still love their trusty Labrador retrievers

    Like a puppy with a slobbery, old tennis ball, the Labrador retriever is refusing to give up its hold on America’s heart.
    The loyal, lovable Lab was named the nation’s most popular breed by the American Kennel Club Monday — taking the title for the 25th year in a row.
    Close on its wagging tail were the German shepherd, golden retriever, bulldog and beagle. The top five breeds, as measured by 2015 AKC registrations, remained unchanged from 2014.
    The French bulldog, Yorkshire terrier, poodle, Rottweiler and boxer rounded out the Top 10.
    The French bulldog took the top spot in New York City for the second year in a row, followed by the bulldog, Lab, golden retriever and Yorkshire terrier.
    Big personality and compact size make the Frenchie a good fit for Gotham, said Alfred Knowles, 70, an Upper East Sider who has owned three of the breed.
    “Tons of personality wrapped in just the right size,” he said while out with his 4-year-old Frenchie, Bobby. “Just don’t tell him he’s a small dog. He thinks he’s the biggest, toughest dog on the block.”
    Completing the city’s Top 10 were the German shepherd, poodle, Havanese, Rottweiler and Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
    Colleen Kelly, a dog walker in Gramercy Park, said poodles are all the rage.
    “Around here, poodle hybrids are most popular. It’s because they are hypoallergenic. They have hair, not fur,” she said while walking Maddie, an 8-year-old standard poodle.

    I trained my lab (and other dogs) from weeks old and to this day she's better behaved than most humans I meet.

    You wire their brains when young and you are good to go.

    Bad dogs usually = lazy owners

    Had a Lab Rot mix. That dog was the smartest dog ever. He was our kids before kids.

    I had him trained to turn lights on and off, play a little kids toy piano (couldnt carry a tune for shit), hand signals
    He rocked !
