hostile and aggressive.

I never think of Labradors as hostile or aggressive.

However, I have seen them aggressively defend

themselves from other dogs, and…


And dear old Maggie became quite hostile towards

a belligerent neighbour a few years back.

She sat, with her back to the wall, and bared all her teeth

while he ranted to me about her crossing into his backyard

to collect one of the many bones left lying around.

The following evening we thought she was over there again

only to see the offending yellow body being hauled off

in the opposite direction.

No apologies and said neighbour has continued

to annoy our dogs and consequently

they have and intense dislike of him.
