    He doesn't look much like the others.

    I think he is sooooo handsome! Maybe it is his color, you don't see the fox red as often as the lighter yellows, black and chocolate.

    He looks like a Lab to me. Most people aren't used to seeing fox red ones. Just goes to show how different Labs can look, huh?

    I get the same thing with Ivy and she's as yellow as they come. I think it's because she's got the chocolate nose and hazel eyes. I just say she's a yellow lab and move on. I know it's frustrating. He is beautiful!

    Have fun with people and tell them the other two are the oddities, as they are albinos!

    Tony is a gorgeous young man!!! When you put him side by side with Judy and Bruno....he does look different then them. He has a wider head. Also that unique color. Maybe that's why they ask. Even among Labs, looks can vary widely. Is he bigger then the other 2? He looks wider, is he taller? In the sitting pic's they look the same, but standing? You certainly have a great looking crew!

    I agree with Kathy. Looking at Tony's pics next to the others I sometimes have to take a second look myself!

    Here's kind of an aside to this thread. When Seamus was really young and lanky, just because of his size and shape, and especially just after swimming, I'd think, "Hey! Have you got some Flattie in you??"

    I've run into the same thing with Diesel a few times. Then I have to explain how yellow Labs can vary in color.
    My Lab is smarter than your honor student.

    Most people aren't used to seeing a conformation style lab either- when Baxter was younger most people assumed he was a mix- thought he had Rottie in him or something

    I adore Tony...he is absolutely gorgeous.
    And what a gorgeous color he is...but I'm sure it's the color that throws people off. His color resembles more of a Rhodesian Ridgeback than a typical yellow lab.
