    Interesting thread, awesome topic............ already giving myself a headache, pondering!

    Large breeding colonies from around the world have spent a lot of $$$, trying to save $$$ and time (resources!), in puppy testing, breeding studies, and then the effect of training/environment, in choosing the best dog for requirements.

    Lotsa PHD students have been kept busy and no doubt in the future as genetic markers/tests which we probably only dream of, will be reality.

    We need a few PHDs students in study retrieving/field requirements. I mean why is marking so poorly inherited...or can seem to be???

    Polygenic mode of inheritance...multifactorial?

    Why why why are whole litter from excellent pedigrees not making the grade...heck even if US field breedings.

    How is CCL disease inherited. In Newfoundlands research is pointing to autosomal recessive.

    Ramble ramble ramble me!
    Field trial labradors, the wind beneath my wings,

    sometimes poop under my boots.
