The banner ought to be changed. It's a good example of a commercial enterprise not knowing what we do or what our concerns are. To them it's just a dog.

If we are going to do this properly, they need to remove the Weimaraner, and include a Golden, a Chesapeake, a Toller, a Flat Coat and any other Breed that is recognized by the AKC to compete at Retriever Events

Hey, Bon, bet you didn't know, Silver Labs can compete at AKC retriever events (hunt tests) if they are registered as Weimaraners - as can about a dozen other European/continental breeds, including the one in my avatar even if she ain't a "White Lab"...

Why is it wrong to have this Weimaraner on the banner?

“A rhetorical question is one for which the questioner does not expect a direct answer: in many cases it may be intended to start a discourse, or as a means of putting across the speaker's or author's opinion on a topic.”

When silver retrievers are designated as a separate breed with their own set of breed standards and stud book, they should be allowed to enter/title in akc/ukc/nahra retriever tests and trials. They should not be considered purebred labradors.

I have not logged in lately so I just saw the new banner. It is trash. I hope I wasn't unclear.

The new banner is a slap in the face to Labrador Retriever breeders who aim to produce the best of the breed. The silver lab isn’t even a full bred lab, it is a cross. My vote is change it, it is offensive to the current database of customers
