    I am sure the others who frequent this subforum will provide you with plenty.

    Here are a few that I think are exceptional in both type and structure - remember no dog is 100% perfect! A dog can have more type than structure and vice versa for example a dog with a lot of type and substance can have a straight rear or poor front end and conversely a dog with great angles fore and aft and a level topline can lack coat and head type.

    I first take in the whole dog - I want to see a lot of depth to the body, short coupled, level topline that ends with a tail right off the back, moderate rear angles, good shoulder layback and forechest, and a pretty head. I think these dogs have these qualities.

    First is a chocolate bitch and then black and yellow dogs.

    We sure have come a long way in the development of a breed!

    I guess I'm confused...to me, the "perfect labrador" is not necessarily one who is, him/herself perfect in every way, but rather one who can *produce* offspring who remain consistent in breed type, conformation, trainability, temperment, and athleticism (not necessarily in that order), and are even more "perfect" than the parents. I think that "perfect labrador" probably has a different meaning to each and every one of us. For instance, for me, the dog that I choose is perfect for what he/she produces, not necessarily for what he/she is.

    I know, I'm probably making myself about as clear as mud here, right?

    what about ch. aquarius centercourt delight? What about him made him a winner? By the way, when I searched for this picture, I found out that Buzz is going for his junior hunter title.

    Great point. The last dog in my thread sired 139 titled offspring and the number is growing each year; of those dogs 9 have 10 national wins at least and I am sure this number will grow as well; also two OTCH dogs and if I have anything to do with that number, it will grow as well
