Bummer, I was hoping the turnip guy had enough wind to keep this sucker sailing until our second split starts.

Just looked in on this thread .....

gonehuntin' ..... seriously CANADIAN labs???????????? :huh: If you lived up here you should know that breedings up here are just like south of the border, those with British based pedigrees and FIELD bred North American dogs.

Not in the 70's they weren't. I was in BC and the breedings were Canadian. They looked like bulldogs. Short and square. What you say I'm sure is true now, but back then that wasn't the case. Didn't take me long to import some American labs.

Very true now, GH, field trial competitors and their "North American" Labs are all but interchangeable on both sides of the border. And wasn't Lean Mac a Canadian Lab? :biggrin:

Also wanted to ask Rick if his troll detector radar was going off over our interloper - funny feeling Mr. Neeps and Tatties as he might be called across the pond (if he were across the pond) - goes by a different name (but same loco horsesh*t notions) elsewhere.

I checked the elsewhere that came to my mind and found no mention of the foray. But, then, I don't recall my best guess posting much, if at all, on his dad's board.

Nah, that was "BigBrit," not a bad lad, innocuous enough, just marketing for his Dad, wrongheaded or not.

Following the lead of my wife's basic philosophy ..... my British lab was more expensive than your American lab, therefore, it must be a better dog. Carry on...

Absolutely despise my American lab, if I was in the market would definitely get a Brit, but then again I don't sky bust so I have no need for a whiny creeper that can mark at 200 yards.











The second split is a ways off, got to keep this thread going.

All American labs are very large and very hyper. All British labs are smaller, very mellow and more trainable. (This might help keep it alive, Bucky).

Right ugly animals, those are. Looks like they've had ample couch time.

But their owners thought them world beaters...which, I suppose, is how it should be.

Have yall everr found yourself on a show lab dominated forum. They are full of pictures of those cuddle monsters with comment after comment on how theyre preserving original intent of breed. What I found most shocking was that theey claim that these dogs can perform just as well. I believe site i visited awhile back was the labrador forum. What I don't see is how anyone having experience with these bench labs would consider making them work remotely humane. I guess it comes back to dogs having the ability to be just right in their owners eyes.

Function in the field is the result of form. I really would like to see the AKC do something like the German's do and require build, coat, disposition and ability to all be tested in a dog before breeding is allowed. A dog with great ability needs the build to carry it and a dog with an ideal bone structure and coat needs the ability to go with that. Shame we can't combine them (and test them one on one :lol: ).

A couple of years ago , I worked as the gunner in the started level hunt test . This lady shows up with two bench labs who look pretty close too the picture above . The dogs wanted too do the work , but sadly couldn't due too not being able the pass the water test portion . They just gave out , just didn't have the stamina . I thought one of them was going too drown . On the land , they marked well , but were slow . They'll just not built for field work !
