    DefaultCurious...color popularity??

    I think my chocolate is as cute as can be ;D, but... what is the most popular color? After looking at all your lab fest pics, etc. , it seems that yellow is the most popular? I don't mean, what is the chance according to genetics, but rather what do breeders try to deliver, so to speak.

    Around here it seems to be black labs. TangerineFizz (she literally lives right down the street from me) has two yellows and I've seen a few others. And we have two chocolates on our street. But mostly I see blacks.

    I see mostly blacks down here too. Angus is the only yellow Lab at our club. There are several blacks. No chocolates.

    In fact, now that I think about it, I'm not sure I've ever seen a chocolate in person!

    I prefer chocolates.

    Connie!!! no way!!!!!!! At all the dog functions youve been to? Never a choc? wow!

    I think it is 1- Black 2- Yellow 3- Choc

    Back in the day, in the show rings, some judges actually snubbed yellows (this was before choc were even accepted).
    Someone here posted last year that they ran into a judge like this. Who only ever chose black labs...maybe it was Laura? not sure...

    When we first got our Bess (BF, AKC bench line, 55 lbs., 1967-81) NONE of the books about Labs I read at that time mentioned the possibility of Chocolate or Yellow Labs.

    Labs -- at that time -- were considered as being universally BLACK.
