A Puppy for Life
Often referred to as the Peter Pan dog because he may be slow to mature, the Flat-Coated Retriever retains his youthful exuberance longer than other retrievers, says Malinda M., a Flat-Coat fancier in Texas. Their playful zest for life continues well into their adult years, as her 9-year-old Flat-Coat recently demonstrated.

“The other night, I heard something in the kitchen,” she says. “I walked in there, and my older dog, Spirit, was up on the counter trying to get bread crumbs out of the toaster. There he was, 9 years old and counter surfing! So even into their old age, Flat-Coats act like puppies, chasing each other around, rolling on the ground, and playing.”
