    One of 8 puppies fathered by Sir Lancelot Encore is held on July 24, 2012 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Edgar and Nina Otto paid $155,000 for Sir Lancelot Encore who is a clone of their former golden Labrador retriever Sir Lancelot

    Don't know what they got for their money. I know what a Golden Retriever is. I know what a yellow Lab is. I don't know what a Golden Lab is. Sorry to sound snobby but a "pet" peeve. Is that a pun?

    I always think I'm being a little elitist when I correct people for that one to...but it's my pet peeve as well. And nice signature!!

    The only thing "golden" about that lab was his price unless the original was a cross. Another snob heard from. "Golden" lab is right up there with the doodles.

    I guess if they've got the resources and want a "clone" of their dog, why not. Hope they weren't disappointed that he wasn't born already trained, LOL. He might look like the original and have a similar temperament, but there's no guarantee he'll act like the original.

    I understand the pet peeve, but I assumed that it was a pun because of the money involved.
