I do think it's funny that a lot of non-FCR people prefer liver...like overwhelmingly so. Just an observation.

Mira's Bb...her Dad's liver and half her sibs are liver as well. I prefer black but a *dark* rich liver can be pretty...liver dogs' coats tend to be more prone to fading though. With all the swimming and such we do, if Mira was liver, no matter how dark, by the end of summer she would probably have blonde highlights lol

Really? I love a rich black. I have noticed a lot of dogs here, the flat coats, have brown highlights and sometimes thicker less even coats than Mira. She's stunning in her deep color, light weight and evenly grown coat.

Really? I would have thought that black would be the preference for most people. I think I just tend to prefer brown dogs over all, regardless of breed. If I have a choice in colour, I always choose brown. Not sure why. Red Dobes, liver Dals, liver Flat Coats, etc.

Black is the preference for FCR people historically which is one reason livers are in such the minority Just seems like a lot of folks who don't own them go gaga for the livers. Not at all a criticism, just an observation. I don't know if it's a case of the human tendency to prefer the unusual or if it's just that black dogs don't pop as much or what. I just find it interesting. I find the flat blacks with fringe to be as classy-looking as they come but that's just me.

I love black dogs too, except for how annoying it is to photograph them. Mira is by far the prettiest Flat coat I've seen. When I show people what a flat coat looks like I try and pull up her pictures because I think she is perfect.

They're different than a lab, I'd say in my experience. It's hard for me to explain though.

I like that a FCR can be total doofus during down time but as soon as they're working it's serious business (and by working i mean hunting, OB, Agility, whatever you throw at them really). They're all heart too, ask a FCR to do something and they put everything into it for you.

Of course I don't live with one and Shai would be better able to tell you more specifically, I only hang out with them and run K in agility occasionally.

Are they sweeter and more biddable like a golden verses a lab?

I have only trained a bit with a baby flat coat, the rest of my experience has been from watching them at trials.
