I think Brian's comment about having a bit of golden in him was a jab about the bandana, for some reason Golden owners are psychologically programmed to put bandana's on their dogs for some reason!His Dad was a black lab and his mother a chocolate. Mom had papers but dad didnt. But when you looked at the father you immediately thought..."lab". So i cant be sure because he has no papers but I dont think there is a problem. Good to no other dogs have mohawks too!
