    Must be a staged pic (or photoshopped). Since I’ve never seen a dog retrieve four ducks at once, it’s impossible for it to happen.

    Stop being obtuse. You know what the breed is supposed to look like.

    Don't know how to be any less obtuse than "field bred British Labs look like field bred American Labs".

    reads a little like you want yours to look like either country's show stock:

    I need not know that dogs country of origin, nor it’s breeding, to know that I am looking at a turd of a specimen right there.

    Where in my original post did I say field bred? But yes, that pic isn’t show stock, that’s what the breed looked like before we destroyed it.

    So Labs were originally bred to look like a Duroc hog? Sorry but I'm not buyin it.

    Foundation breed for most of our retrievers Labs included was the St Johns Dog (now extinct). It looked like this:

    You left out that they were bred from Newfoundlands. Show me a pic of those.
