Alright so there's another chocolate lab pup that lives down the road, and it's 5 mos old. I seen her at the park next to Quest and the dog is HUGE! The pup is the same size as Quest but a lot thicker!!! (Quest is 11 mos now)
I spoke to one of the owners before, explaining that Quest is a field lab and hers had to be from a show line and she replied "She's an english lab that's why she's so big".... I was left a little puzzled by this, and again today at the park I said 'wow has she ever grown' the teenage son says 'it's because she's an English lab'.... That's when I knew I had to come home and research this stuff.
I've read quite a bit already, but I'm curious to hear what you guys classify english & American labs or show/bench & field labs.
