Best in Show's November Dog of the Month - Raven the Labrador Collie

This month is all about Labradors at Best in Show. Along with Wisp and Rachel, we've chatted to Sam - loving owner of adopted Labrador Collie cross, Raven.

She is 7 years old and also goes by the names of Ravey Pops and Teethy.


1. Tell us about your Bestie?

I adopted Raven almost 5 years ago from a charity called Paws 4 Thought. She wasn’t very well socialised so we spent a lot of time at training classes and meeting new dogs. She’s now a great addition to the family and makes everyone laugh wherever she goes.

I love taking pictures of her and she even has her own Instagram raven.smiles. Her favourite hobbies include distributing toys all over the house and singing the song of her people at half 6 in the morning.

2. Best trait?

Her smile and lovely big brown eyes.

3. Worst trait? 

Sometimes she will burp in your face…not the best smell!

4. Favourite thing to eat

Cheese (just like me!)

5. Favourite thing to play with 

Tennis ball. 

6. Where can she be found sleeping? 

On our bed…with her own lovely blanket of course…

7. Where can she be found exploring?

Tynemouth Beach.

8. Pet peeves 

She hates fireworks.

9. Party trick

I wrap her towel around her and say shake and she will shake in the towel so I capture all the mud!

10. If your pet had a job, what would it be? 

Security guard.

11. And finally, what do you love most about your Bestie? 

She’s a great mix of an energetic and intelligent Collie as well as a loyal and relaxed Labrador.
