    I used to know a couple who had flat coated retrievers. I had never heard of them and got QUITE the education when I asked what sort of lab mix they had.

    I was gonna post a new picture of Eva, but she is in the doghouse. She has started to play the game of, "I am looking for a new owner" when I call her inside. INtolerable!! I imagine a day in her crate, 30 minutes at a time on the outside leash and NO outside freedom should make an impression.

    My Eva is wishing she was small enough to get in my pocket. She is NOT a fan of cold, wet weather.
    Time to set up the hayring so she can just park in one spot and munch all day.

    Spelled very wrong, pronounced Lou-Ellen. It’s a strain of English setters that have dark small spots vs traditional hunting English setters are beige/white with large patches. They are also slightly smaller. (Use to breed them back in the old days)

    @seedcorn he points. He has a real strong point and will lock up very tight. Now we're working on him holding till given a verbal command to move once he goes on point. Want him to stay put so he stays safe.

    Nope no llewellin in him. @baymule there are a few different "strains" of English setter out there. Llewllin, and Ryman are 2 that come to mind. The Llewllin tends to be smaller and lighter framed. The Ryman is a big heavier bodied.

    Llewllin type:

    Ryman type:

    Confirmation type:

    Field trial type:

    Just a few different varieties within the breed. Each has their strong suits.

    @Nyboy I often get "what is he?" I've started telling people he's a longhaired dalmatian, or I get "what else is he mixed with along with dalmatian?" Ive started telling people he's a longhaired dalmatian just to mess with them. Still struggle to do it with a straight face but I'm getting there.

    I'm sorry to hear that the Goldens popularity has dropped off. I'd have another one no questions asked. Absolutely fantastic breed and I'll have another 1. Losing mine so suddenly to hemangiosarcoma made it just too difficult to look at Golden puppies. I had just started to wrap my head around looking at kennels for a puppy and he was gone.

    The Doodle craze I just don't get. How often are they overlooking temperament, workability, or health (PennHip, EIC, to name a few) to focus on coat type or color. You have to build a house before you paint it. Until there is a genetic marker for the coat type they want and the dogs are being checked for it, how many doodle crosses don't have the doodle coat?

    Don't even get me started on silver labs :somad

    @canesisters I've trained with a few Flatcoats. They are definitely not a mutt and the owners will definitely give you an earful over that.
