I was just wondering if anyone else's labs had curly hair. Lucky Dog has curly hair that runs down the center of her back. Other labs I've seen have straight hair. My trainer said that it's just a quirk with some labs.
A one to three inch wide strip down the back of courser wavy fur is quite common and within the breed standard. Youused the term curly, when does a wave become a curl? What I read sayd the curly is not within the standard. So, I guess if the hair does not loop back on itself, it is wavy?????
Ernie has the wave down the back. Our friend came over on 4th of July and insisted that he is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever! I just walked away b/c she was so right there was no point in trying to tell her otherwise : Yesterday we were in Petsmart and a guy said the same thing. Stupid AKC---they will register any old mutt I guess
