Coo. Glad neither you nor I had to pay for it.

There's stuff in there I've never heard of, and stuff I have heard of but didn't know that a genetic test was available for; I need to mug up on the cataract business for a start.

I'm sure Long Hair Gene played opposite Jay Silverheels in some of the Lone Ranger movies, and 'Phosphofructokinase Deficiency' doesn't strike me as one to be discussed after a good night in the pub. "Hark, I hear a pistol shot ..." and so on.:) So I chuckled too, but there's a nugget or two to be picked up as well.

That's list is the full monte. So it is possible to have a merle, lemon/brown, long haired, dwarf Labrador with a natural bobtail. Don't let the silver lab-labradoodle folks in on this.
