    QuestionWhy is it "chocolate" ? Why not "brown" ?

    Why are there yellow & black labs, but the brown ones are called chocolate? Why not lemon & umm.. blackberry in lieu of yellow & black?

    I don't really expect a completely logical answer to this question. It's just a thing that makes me go "hmmm" now & then. Sorry, I'm tired

    LOL, I sometimes wonder as well! especially as in other breeds a similar color is referd to as liver! so it could be brown, chocolat or liver and all really be the same color.

    You think I am brown? If I were brown they would have named me Miss Little Shit. But they named me Hershey Kisses because I am Chocolate. And I am soooo sweet.

    Diesel Dawg, I've actually wondered a very similar thing. If the "brown" ones are "chocolates", then why aren't the yellows referred to a "vanillas" and the blacks called "licorce".

    I do like the explanation that they are chocolates because they are the sweetest.
