    I get this question about Lexi frequently. Since she is a rescue, I obviously don't know if she has dash of pit or another breed in her or not.

    When I posted that question here, most replies were she is definitely lab. Regardless of what they are or aren't.... WE STILL LOVE'M!!!!
    Yup!!!

    Okay! I am going to defend the strangers. Here we go.

    Question: Is you dog a Lab?
    Answer: Yes, purebred.
    Comment: He is beautiful. I didn't know they could be brown.
    Answer: Yep! She is a beautiful Chocolate. Labs can be Black, Yellow, or Chocolate.
    Comment: Black too?

    We are Lab people, or at least I am trying to be. I have learned so much in the past 11 months.
    Think about the head shape variations of our furkids! Some of the blockier heads do look like there could be some pit in those heads.
    Body shapes (Field verses Bench, or whatever term you prefer)
    Coats from smooth through some pretty thick curly fur.
    And tails, that hang low or wave high like a flag pole.

    Anyway, I can see why people that don't know much about Labs can ask a lot of questions.

    I have been asked some strange quetions. I think some people have a set idea of what a lab looks like. Someone once asked me if Abby is a mini lab because she is 62 pounds & small boned. Another time a man asked if Molly was a Rottie.

    I just answer & smile.

    I'm guilty of putting the color before the breed. In conversations w/o my dogs present,I will say I have two BLACK labs. My daughter has a YELLOW lab and my brother has a BLACK lab etc. I never just say Lab.

    I could very well say that to someone who obviously has a black lab. Please don't laugh, it a habit thats hard to break after 27 years of lab stewardship.

    If you are going to say you painted Tal, don't say he was pink!!! He's too manly for that! Say he was blue or something! ;D

    Talking about questions you wish you had thought more about. I guess this is a hijack but I have twins. A boy and a girl. This is the question I got.

    Are they twins?
    Yes, they are.
    What are they?
    A boy and a girl.
    Are they identical?

    At first I thought they were kidding, but no, very serious.

    I've never been asked that about my dogs although Bailey is very small, too, 65 pounds and very small boned.

    It's surprizing isn't it? I've seen this happen with a friend who has twins. It's just nice that people make the effort to talk to strangers these days.
