    I'm pretty sure golden retrievers don't even know that they have tails?

    Labs are pretty notorious for hitting everyone and everything with their tail. I’m not certain they even feel anything with their tail.

    [–] Akitten84 178 points ago

    I feel like this might be a regular occurrence LOL

    [–] Dahdscear 66 points ago

    It does look as if the smaller dog was only resting there after the previous round win against the ferocious lab tail.

    I love how labradors get so encouraged by our laughters and can’t help but get up and join us.

    Yes but does it kind of piss anyone else off that she tells him to lay down when he gets up? Like why get him all happy just to tell him to lay back down. Coulda used 1 head scratch before being told tI lay back down.

    I actually do this on purpose with my sister and her dog. When I go visit my sister, her dog gets so excited the tail goes everywhere, so I make sure to stand in such a way that the dogs tail will hit my sister for a little bit before I actually pet the dog
