    I will admit that I am partial to Labs. But my brother-in-law bought a Chessy and I will also admit that Chessy was easy to train. The dog was tough as nails and all it wanted to do was please his master. I watched my brother-in-law throw big river rocks into the fast running Sacramento River and that dog would swim out, dive down, and bring that rock back to him. I am not sure it was the same rock, but it was a rock. Took the dog duck hunting, and send the dog after a duck...and he would bring back a rock. Yep easy to train.

    Reminded me of a friend who names all of his Labs "Rock," because he had to throw rocks to show them where the birds fell.

    That's a great pic, but it so tempts me to post one of my current Chessie with a "fourple" in the spirit of breed one-upsmanship.

    Chocolate is the only acceptable answer.

    Silver should be avoided. It's amazing what we (hunters, backyard breeders, field trialers) have done to the breed. IMO, labs should have the stocky, block head as those of England and in the AKC. If we want greyhounds, bird dogs, etc. buy those breeds. I see so many sorry looking labs out on the marsh.

    So field bred British Labs look like field bred American Labs.
