    Fox reds are either eeBBDD, eeBbDD or eebbDD

    C'mon, Eug, you were a pseudo-American, surely during your encampment here you were introduced to



    Art Vandelay, importer/exporter and, left almost unsaid, architect of Labrador retrievers

    The other joker, "Vanderwyk," reads like a Lab cover story as created by Graham Greene and Graham Chapman in collaboration with "the Colonel" (and not Col. Mustard either).

    Thanks, I think NFC FC AFC works and sounds better to me. If I am looking for a pup the pedigree must contain these for me and the color BLACK when I look at the dog! This makes getting a pup simple for me. I like things simple

    the problem with allowing silver dogs to be registered is that in a few years they will be throughout the gene pool . Well meaning breeders , who have NO interest in producing silvers will have silvers appearing in their lines. Maybe we should go back to culling puppies that don't meet the standard.

    I was not being serious..... BUT what happens in a few years when they start popping up in litters, because they are wrapped into the gene pool. Do you give them away, like you might a birth defect? People WILL be having surprises in a few years, because the dogs are listed as chocolate you might never know there is silver behind what you are breeding. What would you do as a breeder? THIS is why they must be stopped from being allowed to registered. In my humble opinion

    There are plenty of dark yellows/fox reds throughout Labrador history, and, unlike silvers, there are multiple with titles. NFC Dewey's Drake of Moon River, FC AFC CFC CAFC Money Talks II, FC AFC Gunstock's Topshelf Snap Decision, FC AFC Hunting Hills Coriander, and on and on. You can go back in the history as far as there are photos and see the fox red shade in yellows. Can't do that with silvers.

    I Dunno…I've seen lots of early photos of supposed "yellow" and/or fox red Labradors and they all look silver to me
