    jax,

    The problem is when the placenta separates from the uterus, thus interrupting the transfer of oxygen from the mother's blood to the fetus. I don't think you'll be able to tell anything about...

    jax,

    I don't claim to be an expert, but from my perspective this would have been caused by uterine contractions. So, the question should be "what would cause premature uterine contractions". ...

    NateB,

    Silver is a disqualification. The following is from the Labrador Standard approved by the LRC.

    Color
    The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color...

    I saw the dog on local TV and he isn't a full-blooded Lab IMHO. I think they said he was a rescue dog.

    The tail isn't Lab, but maybe the other end with the brains and nose is!

    jeffstally,

    Many British field Labs are wired a little differently than their American counterparts. In my experience they seem to mature a little later and don't have the same resilience...

    I'd like to stress that this silver/dilute issue is about so much more than color and the effect of a single gene on our Labs. I believe that with the dilute gene came a host of other genes from a...

    Karen,

    I'm saddened to hear of your loss of your special dog Mickie. Cherish the memories and the descendants she produced for you to love.

    Sounds like you won't be having a restful vacation, but I'm sure you'll have a bunch of fun as will the pups. I'll bet the owners of your pups will benefit in many ways from the experiences you're...

    Sue,

    I agree with all you said. I do the eye exams as well and won't send a pup home before then. Last year I kept a pup for myself, started a pup for a Dr. that didn't have the time, and then...

    Thanks for the "informative" link. That may be the most twisted history on the origins of the Labrador retriever I've ever read and an even more twisted explanation of the "long and vaunted history"...

    He probably wouldn't have been worth a hoot if he'd been picked up a couple of weeks later . . . just saying.

    I agree as well, Jerry.

    I'd also like to say that it isn't just that we object to a non-standard coat color. It's that we strongly believe there's a Weimaraner behind those dilute genes and...

    Newf,

    I'll bet you it's not the water that's making your dog itchy (even though I get in trouble when I ask to wager with you! ;) ). I'll bet it's the food. My first dog years ago was fed...

    Thanks for sharing Glenda. I can't believe where this seems to be going.

    Billie, I don't need AKC. I run UKC HT's, but I still dual register my dogs. Or at least I have up to now. If money...

    Claire,

    Thanks for the excellent quotes from the texts you cited. They help to set us straight on the facts. I wasn't of the opinion there were hormonal benefits to the bitch from ingesting the...

    Nancy,

    I understand how you could have misunderstood what I said and I'm glad I was able to state it in a way that made more sense. I've never had a mother dog heave a belly full of goo onto a...

    Nancy,

    I won't argue with your depth of experience. Maybe I made it sound like I'm not feeding the bitch for a day or more after whelping. That's not the case. Typically in a night-time...

    Claire,

    I agree with your assessment of the source of the hormones and the wide range of opinions from authors. After reading several books, what's your take on the topic of letting a bitch eat...

    Thanks for the vote of confidence from you and jnelson as well.

    I understand that our domestic dogs don't need to leave the litter to hunt for food. I was using the example of...

    You may think polmaise was just a drive-by poster, but I think I know what he was saying. A vet who claims there is no real nutritional value in placentas doesn't understand canine reproduction...

    PHRGold,

    If the dog got a number they passed the exam. No pass = No number.

    bakbay is correct that a dog can pass the eye exam and have an abnormality that is minor and not considered...
