    There are good labs in all colors ( black, yellow, chocolate ), so get a good lab with the characteristics you want and the color you enjoy.....

    Uh, because they aren't really supposed to be YELLOW? They are really more brownish.

    Mine favorite yellow Lab started out light, ended up much darker and is getting light again as all dogs do in their golden years. I would give anything to have him young again regardless of his color. Enjoy your dog while he or she is with you regardless of their shade of their coat within the three colors for the breed.

    What he said.
    My first lab was black and he was a great dog for what I wanted, but I live in south Texas and mostly hunt dove. The heat during early dove season was really hard on him. My next two, including my current knucklehead have been yellows. Still suffer in the heat, but perhaps not as much and they have the added advantage of being the color of the dried grass in which we often hunt.

    When I rode horses there was a saying "A good horse is never a bad color". This can easily be applied to Labradors. Given that, most of us still have an initial preference. I love a dark chocolate coat, but if I was given a well bred "white" yellow Lab, I wouldn't turn it down !

    X2!!!! The best color lab is the one that brings back the duck.... Black, Yellow, Chocolate, Purple, Blue, or Pink enjoy your dog and enjoy the sport.
