    Troy, you have put up some very good pictures of labs out in the field. What camera lens combination do you use?

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Thanks Howard, I shoot a Nikon D5100 body with a 55-300mm Nikon lens. It was a christmas present to myself last year. I bought both items through Best Buy. The camera is much smarter than I am, LOL, I have been using it in the basic action setting which gives 3 pictures per second. I have been fortunate to capture some nice photo's of Pearl and also of my daughter's sporting events which was the real reason for me getting it. It also takes nice video too. Has been a real treat and a great addition to all I do outdoors and for family.

    I wasn't sure whether to post more pictures or not, I have been a hunter for years, a trainer for months and I know through reading the posts that many here are heavy into training, hence my joining so that I can learn more on that end. Hopefully I can contribute some with my photos and bring some enjoyment and pleasure that way.

    Thanks again, Have a great Holiday Season.

    Your idea of what a lab should like is spot on. Great Pics by the way especially like the one with the dog in the water and the duck laying over the eyes. While looks are important, the trainability and function of the dog are just as important in my world.

    I always liked the looks of FC AFC Cuda's Blue Ryder and his pa, Barracuda Blue. Here is Ryder's pix:

    I also like the dogs that came out of FC AFC Dotty's Cruisen Mach Three (Razor) and FC AFC Machthree's Edge (Edge). This breeding produced very nice looking pups with some field ability. This is a pix of Ollie at one year:

Were we to actually try this it would have to be more than a flash in the pan, but week after week at the shows, realizing that it is like throwing money away as the chances are not high of winning. But under the right non-breeder judge I think they would put up a true moderate lab that fit the standard if there were enough entering and not going away. Could very well save our breed from the chasm of type that seem to continue to widen year in and year out.
    I think it would work. With correct moderate labs. Judges get used to what they see, and the more people do nothing the more heavy the breed will get. I have a nice correct male almost 6 months, but I don't keep him fat, and won't. He has some show and some field in him, but he doesn't really care about his pedigree... I would LOVE to gather some folks with dogs with good form and go "Storm" some shows. I enjoy showing, and it would be fun to see what would happen at a small show with some nice labs and just a few fat labs. The only sad part is that if the fat ones still get chosen the rest of use would just bump up the points for them But I think if true muscle showed up into the ring the fat would show for what it was. I was at a show once and there were 5 brittanies, but 1 was white enough to make the others look a bit yellow. Guess who won (edited here and can not believe I just made that error... *blush*). white looked white until it stood next to real white.... The same could happen with fat and muscle.
