I can't "hurk" at any dog, no matter what it is. It's not their fault. :( I love them all.

did the dogs resemble wiems? just curious because i think they are beautiful. i seriously considered one before i got jinx.
Maybe in the chest. The faces were very Labish, with the sharp trianglular ear rather than the Weim's more rounded triangle. The eyes were a cool color, though, like a combination of a Lab's dark brown with a Weim's greenish tint. Very expressive.

But god, the coat. BLGHGHGHGHG. The color is not uniform. It's not brindled, but more... marbled with very subtle hi-lites of gradations (think angel wings on a yellow, but swirled throughout). And the wishy-washy consistency just really turned me off.

heh.. i just googled them and noticed the britons call them Springadors =)
S'pose the Springador sounds a little better than a Labradinger. I'd feel like a bit of a pratt introducing my dog as a Labradinger.

Although it makes me wonder what happened to the use of the word cross breed. Or mutt. Even mutts (mixes of 3 breeds or more) get funky names nowdays.

My first "lab" was actually a lab-springer mix (back when they were just a mix). I thought that she would stay small since the mom was about 40 lbs. Should have known better since the dad (lab) had somehow climbed a six foot fence to get to the mom in heat. Anyhow, Lady was 85 pounds, and was a jumper until she turned six. Nothing but time could break her of that habit. I chalked it up to the springer in her.

Btw, we called her a splabrador, lol.
