That's right! You must have an even number or your pack will list to one side when it walks...

I think Penny looks more like the American (field) lab than the English (show) lab.

Thanks for those interesting links rainbow .

I had this idea earlier...if she's only a mix of two breeds, I was wondering if there was a breeder(s) in the area she was found. So I did a bit of research and found only one in the town right next to it (she recently moved out of that area). She breeds Labs and Goldens . Has 4 males and 7females that she breeds. I'm wondering what the chances are that Penny belonged to an 'accidental' litter.

I never would have guessed it either. Definately a nice breed mix though. She is a beautiful dog.

An interesting idea. I know a setter that bays... Turns out the breeder that produced her breeds both setters and hounds. So is the baying a learned behavior or the product of an accidental exchange of genetic material in an unsanctioned liaison, so to speak? I wish her owner would run one of the DNA analyses on her! Might be very interesting...

Yep, I'm guessing that both these breeders didn't keep a very close eye on their dogs. :sad:

Might not have been accidental at all There is a "kennel" in BC that produces 4 different purebreds plus they also use some of those to cross breed for desiger mutts for a total of 8 different "breeds" produced



Penny is just adorable I would've thought Lab x Flat Coated Retriever since she looks much more the flat coat type than a golden
