    Many, many, many years ago... the joke was "If you think you've seen a good yellow run... it's because you haven't watched enough blacks." I believe good breeders have brought forward a robust population of yellow labs and that rhubarb is no longer true. When I first started paying attention to FT's (before there were hunt tests) there were no chocolates of any repute. Look how that has changed!!!

    To the OP... just get a good lab with a working pedigree. Please do some study on the differences between the labs bred (predominantly) for conformation shows, and the ones who have (at least some) hunting retriever and/or field trial progenitors. (The world of labs is so polarized, they might as well be different breeds altogether.) If you want a hunting dog, don't go to an exclusively show breeder. There are some determined breeders trying to bridge the gap. But just study up on the pedigree of any litter you like.

    Interesting that pretty much all the dogs mentioned in the article are show bred.

    Thanks for taking the time to give all the input. I think I just had a predisposition on what a yellow lab should look like and at the time I wasn't seeing very many darker yellows. And tbh I didn't really know that pups grow a little darker which makes sense.

    In our pack we have EVERY shade of yellow from light cream to dark red ..... ALL YELLOW .... I like yellow dogs but I am not particular to any shade. As others have said... A GOOD DOG is a GOOD DOG. (We even have 1 black dog ha ha )

    The young pup picture above looks like it could be a picture of my new pup. Mom looks like the middle pic. Nice looking bunch above.

    I'm hoping for a 'Tartan' one to be produced But personally couldn't care what color it was ,as long as it does the business.
    This bundle is our last bunch and I'm more than happy with them
