Yes, my sister leaves hers bare (because she has so many cages) and tosses fleece blankets in for them to nest. Towels are good too but if you have chewers the strings might impact their guts. Lisa uses towels when she transports them though bc they soak up pee better :)

We're not talking about labs being "bad" or discussing them in the negative at all!! We're merely pointing out that under some circumstances, labs WILL become destructive because they're working dogs (and they LOVE water so swimming should be a significant activity in their lives) All the labs I met are incredible dogs, true idols for the breed. Yours is adorable, has a teddy bear face :) They look so rustic around here.
Also, the color of the coat does NOT matter and will not predetermine their excitability or adult behaviour. Genetics and training determine that, but labs are amazing good dogs, there's a reason they're one of the top service dogs.
So baby shrimp might be the cutest little things around.
