Ok.....I'm still on my quest for a Weimaraner or Chocolate Lab....but still seek out info on the Silver Labs. A great forum I use for info is justlabradors.com Well......I think it is a great forum.....not too sure after seeing this post: http://www.justlabradors.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=39062 These people are posting up-close pics of their male labs 'genitals' and bragging about how furry they are!!!!! Evidently one even talks about giving her dog a 'pleasing hand' in order to collect sperm.!!!!! (see 2nd page, post number 10) I have NEVER heard of this type of bragging and 'collecting' before!!! These people are serious too! Is this strange to anyone else?????? Gross maybe??????
Well, I just went and read those posts. STRANGE!!! I have a feeling those people love their dogs a LITTLE too much. What was the point of them posting that stuff? I can't imagine going on my Great Dane forum and posting pics of my Danes' "special areas". The whole thing is kind of scary. Fin
okay well i just went and read only the first page of posts. i found it rather amusing. i can certainly see humor in most of those posts. if they want to see a really furry one then they should see thunders when he's in full coat. being a chow mix he'd put all them to shame lol.
actually i've heard of the "collecting"; mocha's (my pug) father actually died 2 years before he was whelped. the breeders had a really great male, and they "collected" him and froze the sperm before he died to have him live on since he was such an outstanding pug in temperament, health, and looks.
am i the only one here that sees that these people were just goofing around ? its so obvious they were having a laugh at the expense of their dogs privates. i read the other pages and was laughing my butt off. i cannot possibly be the only one who saw their humor.
Okay, THAT'S disturbing and hysterical at the same time. I wonder what the people who developed those photos were thinking :D ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
Most Labs in my circles are being bred w/ artficial insemination these days. It cuts down on life threatening problems. I don't know that any of us talk much about it, although there was a scandal many years ago...
I thought it was funny and could tell they were joking around...but at the same time, it's one of those things that you want to read and see what's going on, but you feel almost embarressed..lol does that make sense? They have a lot of balls to post those...ok maybe not them, but their dogs did!
That's weird. If you are looking at the silver Labs, I know a website that breeds all color labs. You can ask questions and maybe get one. Hollie is very nice. http://www.redrockranch.net The silver labs are very beautiful.
I thought the "parka" thread was hilarious, actually, and I just about spewed tea on my monitor when I saw the "Conga" pic, lol.
And I bet the "parka" on a Chow mix would put a lot of dogs to shame ROFL.
My male dog just lies around on his back, showing his business to the whole world without a second thought. If those dogs are like mine, all you'd need would be a digital camera nearby. I mean, dogs are shameless - they hump each other in public, eat garbage, sniff each other's butts... what do you expect? LOL

Just keep in mind the AKC does not recognise "silver" as a legitimate color of a Labrador retriever. Google a search on Silver Labradors and you will find several articles written by respected breeders and genetic experts. Siver Labs are controversal to say the least.
Personally I group Silver Labs and Labradoodles into the catagory designer dogs- cross breeds- mutts actually, that people are willing to pay big bucks for. You can get a lot of pure bred Labrador or Weim from a reputable, responsible breeder for less money than what some people are paying for these cross breeds.

*Those people* are breeders. Reputabable breeders whose dogs have been judged as champions and excellant examples of what the Labrador retriever is supposed to be. Their dogs do stuff: agility, obedience, hunt trials and conformation. Their dogs are good at it. If you want Labrador puppies, breeders got to do what breeders do.
JustLabradors has been around for several years. The site is much like an extended family. A little disfunctional at times but family just the same. Some members there have a sense of humor that some visitors apparently find offensive. If you are offended by some, don't read them. Especially the ones about snow snakes.
In the paraphrased words of an obscure playwright, maybe a quote:
Lady, doze are goot feesh. If you no like dah feesh, poot dem bach in dah bare-ell, and doan poke out dah eyes. Ho-kay? Ho-KAY.
