It's not the animals themselves that people take such exception to . . . they had nothing to do with how they were bred and brought into the world, or for what reason. The animals are always the real victims and they are the ones who pay the heaviest price. And that is what makes people so angry.

Color
The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable. White hairs from aging or scarring are not to be misinterpreted as brindling. Black--Blacks are all black. A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog. Chocolate--Chocolates can vary in shade from light to dark chocolate. Chocolate with brindle or tan markings is a disqualification.

Similar, yes, though some of the white shepherd breeders do health testing, conformation showing as a rare breed, and I've heard of some that are involved in herding. But there is a lot of criticism aimed the practice of breeding for one colour, particular when it's not part of the standard. If you're not doing the health testing, testing the dog in some venue (whether OB, herding, etc.) and working towards betterment of the breed, then IMO you're breeding for money. Consider someone who puts a couple of shepherds together and hopes for a white puppy because someone will pay more for that colour. That's what I would call a BYB.
By the way, in Canada you can't sell a dog as a purebred unless it's registered by the Canadian Kennel Club. Neither of these "breeders" say that their pups come registered by the CKC. Forget this APR stuff - if you're not going to register the pups (and that means microchipping or tattooing each puppy with a CKC registration number before it goes to its new home), then you're not selling purebred dogs. Pretty simple.

But dame is never used in the French language to describe a female dog, chienne is.

Hi there Pete


I just wanted to say I am actually very good friends with these people.
I own a beautiful silver lab of whom makes my life complete.


I see no reason for people not to breed them, as long as they are healthy and find appropriate homes. I personally do not breed, but that is because I have no interest in breeding. I cannot understand this desperate need for all dogs to be titled, and to be the perfect colour. Who cares?

As long as you are producing healthy happy pups and pups that find good homes...really what else matters?

I guess it is my inexperience that makes me ignorant to all this controversy.

I do know at Country Labs
they do health testing, their dogs are drop dead gorgous, and they have no troubles selling the pups. I also know there seems to be alot of silver breeders around, they all seem to feel what they are doing is correct.
Who am I to argue with that?

Silver Labs are CKC registered...who cares if they are considered chocolate..just look at them. It is obvious they are silver...

You forget this is Quebec french we are talking about. French Canadian language is not anything like that of France.

It is more of a slang french here in Canada..something I do not speak.

I do think dames is being referred to as ladies. I do often see on websites...queens...that is a female cat not a dog. Never the less it is used.
