Well, they're both within the standard for weight. In fact, Sadie was on the smaller side for a female (weight range for a female in working condition is 55-70 pounds). Even tho Blackie was closer to the top end of the weight range (65-80 pounds), I bet "Joe Q Public" would have said he was small. LOL
I don't know, I still don't think you could go wrong with a Lab.

I agree....a lab fits the bill!!!
You could look for a litter from a smaller sire/dam...or even look at field bred labs. Alot of the females that are field bred are on the smaller side.
