    Yellow lab with a liver colored nose, lips and eyerims.

    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

    If you're not going to show the dog (and I'm assuming you're not), why do you care what color his nose is?

    IMO we make to much of the colour......a Lab is a Lab, no mater Y, B or C......they all rock!
    Labrador Retriever, a 20g & grouse...is there a better combination?

    disclaimer: i am not now a breeder. i have no plans to become a breeder.....but if i ever do become a breeder, it will all happen in the back yard!


    how about this answer. i wouldn't breed a chocolate or a yellow, much less a chocolate to a yellow. my second favorite dog of all time was chocolate(black x black) and i have a nice yellow dog now(black x black)

    Now now if you do your chocolate-yellow breeding chances are most likely they all come out black, and nature rights itself (LOL)
