For those of us that wanted a picture.

I’ve smoked a Black and Tan (extremely cheap rot gut cigar) but I’ve never seen a black and tan lab.

I’d never heard of them until the other day when I saw an ad for a litter in the local paper. I laughed because they listed the Labs as purebred, but then said their coloring was black and tan. Apparently, though, it does happen… hmpf. I also saw a lab listed as “silver with tan markings”. Thought that was a bit interesting. Who knows now with people listing puppy litters as “purebred Puggles” and the such.

A friend of mine has one. He’s adorable.

I have not seen one and known it, however they are suppose to be great dogs, and fantastic hunting companions from what I understand.

Never seen one in person and if I had, definitely wouldn’t have recognized it as a Lab. But apparently both of the parents have to carry the specific gene for them to get that coloring. I looked them up and they’re adorable.

I have seen only one before.

Even more rare is the Labrador Dudley.

It is a yellow lab with a yellow nose and yellow eyes. I had one for twelve years, she had two litters and the pups were all black.

I’ll post a picture of her, if I can figure out how

I have, but I show dogs, so rare varieties are par for the course there.
