    Default Famous Labs with White Spots on Their Chests?

    RTF'ers,

    I've recently whelped a litter of puppies and intend to keep a female as a hunting companion and potential future brood bitch. Of the four females in the litter three of them have a small white spot on their chest. Ideally, I'd rather not keep a pontential breeding bitch with a white spot, but there are a lot more important things to consider when evaluating the pups.

    So, I thought it might help me put things in perspective if you folks could tell me about famous Labs who had white spots on their chests. Do you have any candidates for the list?

    Didnt Timex have a spot on his chest?
    (NFC Vinwoods Take a Lick'in) hope i didnt get that wrong.

    Probably would depend on the size of the spot. Keeping in mind the puppy grows and the spot doesnt usually.

    .
    Yes you got it wrong, no white spot but only one descended testicle which is the reason he wasn't bred.

    Hard to say which was worst when one wasn't needed and the other was needed badly?

    I think you may be fishing in a pond devoid of fish. I can recall two with large white blazes on their chest who were moderately successful field trial dogs but far from famous.

    Depending on the size, most small spots aren't visible in adult dogs. If the dog had correct type, bone, coat, movement, angles, temperament, retrieving ability, passes all their clearances, etc (not in that particular order mind you), a bit of white on the chest (which is allowable in the standard!) would be the LAST thing I'd worry about.

    75 % with a blaze??? I think you already have issues with your "Breeding Stock"

    All the threads lately on what a Lab should look like "Bench vs Field" none suggested that a Lab should be spotted.

    Jeff, being the historian and purest that you are I'm surprised you'd even ask that question.....Let alone consider reproducing that trait.

    Flame on......I'll crawl back under my rock now

    May you pin all the marks and line the blinds!!

    Got a pup for my kids for Christmas that had a large white blaze. He is now 7 months old and it is almost totally gone. VERY well bred pup with a black father and yellow mother.
