    The AKC or the parent breed club which writes the standard published by the AKC?

    Don't let the word pointers fool you. They breed "retrievers"

    Don't let the words Flat Coat fool anyone either, these breeders are an abomination. When word got out on the FCR grapevine about their activities there was a whole lot of effort made to find out who supplied them with intact dogs or bitches.

    For what it's worth; while Yellow was always present from the earliest days of the breed, so too had it been excluded from the standard. There was no equivocation in the breed standard, it called for yellow to be "ruthlessly condemned". No reputable breeder is to sell a yellow FCR without a Spay/Neuter clause.

    It's unbelieveable what the public will purchase and believe. To top it off, according to another online classified ad, they are asking $1600 per pup for something that is no more than a mixed breed.

    Everyone would be much better of if they went around to the local shelters and collected the pups and came up with some good labels and hefty price tags to go with them.

    JMHO..... Is it possible that the dilute gene might have been present in the purebred lab gene pool based on cheeses and Newfoundlands both having it..... Yes.


    Is it likely that once the market for silvers exploded questionable breeding practices, either breeding solely for color or perhaps enhancing the frequency of the gene in certain lines by adding a chessie dilute or a weim dilute to the "line". Yes

    Ah, the famous AKC statement by Robert Young of the AKC.

    Copy and paste this lie into a google search, and see who keeps repeating it.
    In 1987 we conducted an inquiry into the breeding of the litters that contained the dogs that were registered as silver and one of our representatives was sent to observe several of the dogs that had been registered as silver. Color photographs of these dogs were forwarded to the office of the American Kennel Club where the staff of the AKC and the representative of the Labrador Retriever Club of America examined them. Both parties were satisfied that there was no reason to doubt that the dogs were purebred Labrador Retrievers, however both parties felt that the dogs were incorrectly registered as silver. Since the breed standard describes chocolate as ranging in shade from Sedge to Chocolate, it was felt that the dogs could more accurately be described as chocolate than as silver."

    Written by Robert Young of the AKC 3/27/00


    And then tell me who "Robert Young of the AKC" is, and what position he holds, or once held, with the AKC.
