If you were to be looking for a Lab that would be the perfect example of what the lab should be, what would he/she look like? (Include picture or link of your idea of the perfect looking lab.)

Considering function, health and aesthetics what do you think is the perfect looking Lab?

and her name is Heshey Kisses.

She is my perfect Lab. Not likely to win any competition anywhere but in my house, but that is the one that counts.

I'm with Ed on this one -- Puff's the one I love.

I had a previous black ♀, Bess, from a competitive bench line breeder. She was blocky, stocky, with a straight otter-like tail and I came to believe she was the best looking Lab in the world.

But Puff is from a competitive HT & FT breeder and has a longer snout, leggier, leaner, and with a sickle-shaped tail. Now I've come to believe she's the best looking Lab in the world.

Honestly, as much as I adore Caleb, and think he's gorgeous, he is in no way an example of the perfect Lab. Size wise, he's OK, but his coat is thin, and he doesn't have the best pigment.

Hmmmmmm......Ok how about the best looking lab for form, function and health that you have never owned.
I knew what you were meant, but I can't pick just one. Laura/labby's dogs come to mind right away (http://www.kelrobin.com/main.html ) . Then there's Corey Anger's Bravo (can't find a pic of him on line, but I met him in person years ago) and Garry (Ch Langshott Gale Force From Kimvalley) http://kayolabs.tripod.com/Garry.htm

eta- this is the only picture I can find of Bravo online. http://www.woodhulllabs.com/

I LOVE Clark's babies (at least the ones I've seen), and I like him too, though I've never seen him in person.

He's a Dickendall boy.

The look I like is somewhere between bench and field. I don't have a picture handy, but I have a mental image of it. Muscular, trim, alert, somewhat blocky head. Taller than bench with longer legs, but not gangly.

I guess it's pretty close to Angus, actually. :) It's funny because when we got him he was such a tiny puppy, and I remember worrying that I wouldn't think he was handsome when he grew up - he seemed so small. Isn't that hilarious? As if you could live with a dog for years and not end up thinking they are the most beautiful creature to ever walk the earth.
