Well, since the other thread is closed i suppose i'll have to open a new one. This a response to Labreeder saying we were darn right rude in our e-mails to her, nothing can be further from the truth. If you wish i will post the e-mails that were sent, nothing rude. If you 3 colored breeders honestly think these silver labs look like weims you really have never genuinly seen one, my female is 80 lbs and looks nothing like a weim. Weims faces look to the point of being anorexic and trust me on this my female looks nothing like that. You all talk like these beautiful creatures should be killed upon birth because it doesn't conform to the "medival" color schemes of the AKC. Look at her picture and tell me she is chocolate. Your higher than though mentality is disgusting. Labreeder you say we are not bettering the looks of the breed, maybe in your opinion, but we are still breeding Labradors to better the health. Does it really matter what color she is?? I will not descriminate based on color because she doesn't conform to your standards, she has the same temperment as my yellow and chocolate, just because she is silver she shouldn't be put out to pasture. On my site i never claimed a rare breed, she is silver and that is what she is. Ironically you all point to labbies.com to discredit the silvers but it seems to be the only site that does amongst perhaps another 1 or 2. The positives for the silvers seem to only come from Silver Lab breeders, so....who is right??? it's up to the customer to decide if he/she wants a silver and does there research. It's up to us to make sure health is as important as color. So maybe in your eyes i'm not bettering the look, but in my opinion it does.
