    The truth about silver labs. That just says it all SLAB....

    No such thing.

    Gee, and here I was thinking that facts to consider before purchasing a lab would be more along the lines of finding a reputable breeder that health tests, socializes the pups well, 'proves' the breeding stock through performance and/or conformation, accepts pups back at any time in its life, etc.. But I guess it's no surprise that the diluters once again focus solely on their DQ colors.

    I was going to read it but considering it's about silvers, I'll save my effort. If it were printed, it would be good for picking up poop.

    They really enjoy that Jertom. They enjoy putting people down putting labs down based on colors. It gets kinda of entertaining at times when they really get on the high horse.

    Hey, this is a Labrador board...for Labradors....not mixed breeds that don't meet the standard. I loved my friends' pound dogs, but lets call a spade a spade.

    A spade is as is a spade. Labradors with the dilute gene are here to stay I know that doesn't make the old timer's happy but the reality is this is a breed of dog, that is evolving and changing. Just like Chocolate was once a taboo in the breed so the dilute gene is to some now, but is gaining wider acceptance with each passing year. You might want to re-consider how to live with the reality rather than dig in your heals, stick your heads in the sand, call a bunch of names like mutt mixed breed, mongral, yadda yadda yadda, and really deal with the reality of the breed that has changed, and is changing.

    Dilutes are taboo to "some"?? It is not allowed in any breed standard in the world; nor is it accepted by any reputable breeder in the world. Anyone willfully breeding against the standard does not have the best interest of the breed in mind.
    Serious question: What do dilutes have to offer the breed that would make it better? There are already countless healthy labradors with the soundness, structure, drive, and temperament that make them labrador, the most well-loved breed in the world. What does adding dilutes do for that? Color aside, I have yet to see one that has the superior structure, soundness, drive, AND temperament that a labrador should possess before one even considers breeding it.
