lab party at the dog park

a great afternoon at the dog park. look who has joined the lab party: two black labs, one chocolate lab, one silver* lab, and one bassador!

* i had never seen a silver lab before. at first i thought he was some kind of weimaraner-mastiff mix, but he was just too big for a weimaraner. it turned out that he was simply a huge lab with a rare coat color. according to a breeder's website, until 1987 the american kennel club recognized "silver" as a registered lab color, but after some breeders protested, the silver color is now listed as "a shade of chocolate". ah well. what's in a name?
