I was walking Willow through my neighborhood yesterday, when a guy that was working at my neighbor's house stopped us. He said what a beautiful dog she was and that he had a lab once. Then he proceeded to say "you don't see too many like this - black mixed with chocolate." I was a bit confused, so I asked him what he meant... he actually thought that she had some black hair and some chocolate hair. As in, her Mom was chocolate and dad was black.
I explained that no, her parents and grandparents and great-grandparents are all chocolate.
I don't think he believed me, so I just told him that she's dark chocolate and we went on our way.

Half the time people think Cord is black half the time chocolate... but he's a "dark chocolate" too. Funny!!
Some people are geniuses!
One of my pet peeves is when someone calls a yellow a "golden lab" UGH!!
Too funny,at least he did'nt try and convince you that you had a chesepeake bay retriver.
