    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.

    If you insist on re-starting this . . . well, you get what you get. You've given your opinion, and you're entitled to your opinion, but don't expect any great conversions without presenting more than just opinions.

    Renee, that is all we both have are opinions, there is no proof one way or another. Everyone can argue till there blue in the face, there is no scientific proof that proves or disproves the silvers, so why not just live with it instead of bashing these beautiful animals.

    What is the purpose of re-starting a thread that has just been closed? You don't think that it was closed for a reason? I don't get it. Did you join just to cause trouble?

    Thank you Saje for the words of wisdom. Apparently you can only come on here to bash Silvers and not defend yourself in any shape or form. Labreeder gave false information and i felt the need to correct her, i apologize if that causes you discomfort. I'm not here to cause a rucus but to defend the breed, last time i checked it was an open forum to the public to voice any concerns.

    Boy they moved their website quick. If you aren't doing something your ashamed of why move your site?

    Edit: Must have been my computers error, it's back now!

    I don't really have anything to add. I don't understand however why you bother to defend yourself. If you know what you are doing is right and good for the breed why should it matter what we all think?

    What are you talking about??? The website never moved. I think you're refering to someone else. Please get your facts straight before you post.

    Look. I dont breed for color period. Even if I got a silver lab out of it that pup would be the same price as the other pups. I breed based on talents and how each dog compliments the other in many aspects. Such as Lineage, clearances not just the parents but at least 3 generations behind them, the talents of the dogs and the areas where the dogs struggle, temperments, and I look at the looks of the dogs since so many field bred dogs can look a bit off.
    I see in you post that you breed for clearances only? How are you bettering the breed? Breeding is for the love of the breed not the love of what you get out of it. JMO

    Are your dogs field bred? Show/bench? Niether? Just curious
    also could you post a link to your site?

    Also this is correct information on Silvers. Btw I have a dark yellow also known as a Fox Red. I dont breed for color he just happen to be that color and I like it.

    i had suuuuch a long argument with someone about this, apparently they are classed as a shade of chocolate by the AKC, if that is true i have no problem with them, its just people breeding them for money (not mentioning any names) that disgust me,

    lol u didnt spell it right

    The dogs are not only bred for clearance...they obviously cannot be bred for show as they would be disqualified on color alone. I am in the process of training her in tracking, and i must say she is doing quite well. Our Yellow as well has been trained in tracking. Until she gets a championship there is no point in advertising the tracking part so we left it off the site. Anyways, the site is www.silvercountrylabs.com

    I cant say labs werent meant for tracking as they can track down birds and make good drug, bomb sniffin dogs.
    Are there any titles in your dogs pedigrees? How about clearances other then that particular dog its self. Also what are the registered names of your dogs if you dont mind.

    What's "dames?" Doesn't that mean an elderly woman?

    Why do you feel your puppies should be different prices? Crappy imo.

    Its another name for bitch only more polite LOL

    I didnt see anywhere on her site that suggests her pups are priced different.
    I suppose though she prices them on which pup got the silver color and what ones didnt. Thats breeding for color.

    Good grief...this is Yuckaduck's buddy. Birds of a feather...same argument as breeding out-of-standard, untitled German shepherds. In fact, substitute blue or liver shepherd for silver lab and charge more for the "rare colour" and you have the same controversy.

    just my opinion but i would never buy off anyone that was charging different prices for different coloured dogs of the same breed.
