The Labrador personality is one that knows no bounds; it continues to suffer long after the need is fulfilled. And why does it do this? It does this because it knows no other way to live. It is encouraged to do, as it does, by an overwhelming urge within its being. This urge cannot be removed because this is its purpose in this experience; to do more than is required.
However, for the human population, thankfully, this condition (of doing too much) is generally a temporary condition. The individual placed in such a situation is not required to go all the way forever and ever amen. No, the human experiencing such a condition ultimately finds the answer and brings about a solution; thus ending the condition.
When we find ourselves attracted to the Labrador we need to ask ourselves why. Why is it that this is so? Are we contemplating going overboard for a cause? Are we giving too much of ourselves? Are we taking on board way too much? This is the energy of the much loved and respected Lab. He is deliciously delightful. He is intensely devoted. He is much revered. He is a dog. We are human. We need to take the lesson and resolve it.
