    Interesting. Who would have thought the chocolate color came from pointers. I can see the field lines having some greyhound but the foxhound and flat coat were unexpected. My dogs stubborn nature is surely from some foxhound.

    This was a very interesting article into the history of some of the color origins.

    I knew that flatcoats were used, actually quite frequently if you go back far enough in a dogs pedigree, but did not realize that they were using foxhounds and greyhounds or pointers for that matter. Funny, because I have 3-4 different "types" of labs out of our 10 dogs. They range from the really old style of lab to the greyhound looking ones! But we love them all the same.

    Thanks for the link. Foxhounds? Are they a recognised breed by your AKC.

    Off for some computer surfing.
