    Not yet, but Robert you need to calm down and please watch the language (acronyms).

    And please everyone else watch what you post, it is obvious this is a touchy subject for many. It is obvious that someone's comment was taken personally, please think before you hit submit.

    And lastly, please don't take the bait...sometimes it's best to let things be.

    I am really very curious Robert, do you have a 5 or 6 generation pedigree you might share? Do your dogs come from field breedings or show breedings?

    why can't the LAB have a dilute gene? IS not the LAB from the st john's dog or the Newfoundland like the Chesapeake Bay retriever? Chesapeakes have had ASH or the dilute brown historically for a long period of time. Newfoundland also have had dilute browns.

    It doesn't matter what breeds made up the foundation dogs for the Labrador Retriever breed.

    That's completely, and utterly irrelevant.

    The Labrador Retriever, is it's OWN breed today. And it's a breed that is not SUPPOSED TO have any recessive d's, anywhere in any of the dogs being registered with the AKC.
    They are supposed to ALL be gone.

    Just like there is not supposed to be any non-dilute Weimaraners, there are not supposed to be any dilute Labs.

    The Weimaraner breed got rid of all the big D's. The Labrador breed got rid of all the little d's.

    That was really hard to do.
    Harder in Labs, because dilution is the recessive expression of what's in the D locus.

    These "Silver Lab" breeders are doing the exact opposite of what they are SUPPOSED TO do, when their lines express dilution.
    Instead of striving to stop it's spread, they are INTENTIONALLY reproducing it.

    If the foundations of our breed are "utterly irrelevant" than so too is the breed. The breed is only as good as its foundation, it is what defines a breed!

    One could say these "field Lab" breeders are doing the exact opposite of what they are SUPPOSED TO do, when their lines express out of standard traits.
    Instead of striving to stop it's spread, they are INTENTIONALLY reproducing it.
    I don't know how many times I have read excuses here as to why it is just fine for field breeders to breed completely out of standard dogs because they love to retrieve more than breathe. It seems to me the kettle is calling the pot black....which some here claim is the only true Labrador color. I suppose that clears it up! We should all breed for and run fire-breathing, carnivorous black gazelles with a killer drive for retrieving.
