    It's certainly sweeter. I don't care much for licorice though. Maybe it could be the white choc, milk choc, and dark choc collection. Yum yum.

    Don't take this the wrong way... but how is this guy any different that some guy with a lab "with papers" getting his dog together with his hunting buddy's dog "with papers" and making puppies....

    There will always be people concerned with the "integrity of the breed" (but is it show or field???).. and those who breed whatever they want.

    Ok, the reason I posted this was the following...............
    I have been getting allll kinds of e-mails with regards to the government trying to put control on breeding. You all know what I'm talking about.
    I have trained or tried to train some of these "rare colored labs and the doodles " and have boarded many more.(many are on meds. from seizures to thyroid to you name it) I am still active in rescue work for Labs. and Goldens in my local area. It's a volunteer job that sometimes leaves me so dam angry
    Ask yourself , What purpose is he breeding a noname nothing Lab. to his boy BooBoo(and you know that the titles are meaningless to Johnny B. Public, BUT you can learn soooooooooo much more from that pedigree than the dog's accomplishments Right? (whatever his name is??)To better the breed? Are you nuts? To keep a puppy for himself??Nope! So he IS a marketing genius. WhoopEEEEEEE
    "Leddyman" have that bitch spayed!!!
    Just think about it that's all
    And yes it happens in allot of breeds.I have a sweet lady in town here the has "adopted" 2 retired Yorkie brood bitches. God what a mess they are. poor things!!!!!!!!!
    Where DOES it end??? Quality vs. Quantity.
    Hmmmmmmmmmmm?

    Mike, No I do not think this guy is any different than most people breeding labs, except he has a pretty clear agenda, breeding for color.

    Saw that. the 2 things that sttod out to me was the comment about breeding to the "flavor of the day" (popular stud) and the trouble it causes for the breed and the other was the 1 in 4 purebred dogs has a genetic "problem" (non-specific).
