    The nukes dropped on Japan resulted in 100,000 contaminated surviors. Of that number, 500 will die prematurely for that exposure.

    The question was regarding silvers and a dilute black is not a silver. I haven't seen anything from AKC saying to register a dilute black as a chocolate. Do you have a reference?

    This issue is settled. The parent club has decided that the dilute gene does not belong in labs. They will allow them to be registered but they do not and will not recognize the color.
