Super Dog

We have two Labrador Retrievers one chocolate (Harley age 10 ) and one black (Bo age 9) They are spoiled rotten and loyal to the bitter end. They are such people dogs, preferring to be at our side 24/7. Harley is extremely intelligent, gentleman-ly and athletic. Bo is the "bo-dozer", pretends to be the alpha dog, needs a baby in his mouth at all times and prefers to lay at our feet rather than retrieve. BUT when it comes to swimming They know they are Water Dogs. This sketch is Harley (almost black when wet) he will retrieve anything until he drops from exhaustion.
