The Cutest Chocolate Lab Names!

There are lots of extremely cute dogs breeds. The Lagotto Romagnolo, a Bichon Frise, and Cocker Spaniels are all contenders for the title of  ‘Cutest dog breed’ but seriously, can they beat the adorable Chocolate Labrador?

The chocolate labrador is probably one of the most universally adored family pets, and for good reason. Whilst they might not be as cool and collected at their golden and black cousins, they are most certainly more goofy, playful, and chubby!

It all starts when the majority of chocolate labs are born with stunning blue eyes… #toocuteforwords!
