: : I would love to breed mine, but since she doesn't have papers I think it would be hard to find someone that wants to breed with her. Even though I know her dispostion and look is what every black lab lover would want. I will tell ya black lab puppies are CUTE!! I Would be afriad that if I did find someone to breed her I wouldn't be able to get rid of the puppies! LOL MY dh would kill me! LOL. May I ask where you are located? I live in western NY.

: Hi Jenn!

: I know what you mean about not wanting to get rid of the puppies. I don't think I would be able to either. I have thought about it and I think I may breed her just once. I would love to see the puppies. Would it be difficult for you to get papers or register your Lab if you went to the owner whom you purchased it from and have them all registered. I don't know much about papers but I just received mine in the mail (AKC papers). The owner had told me that it would take a couple months to receive them from the day I purchased her. These have her name and the parents names on them. Also, do you know exactly what show dog is? I asked the breeder and she had said that means champion/show quality. Is this true? I am going to purchase some books because I still need to know more about Labs, especially if I end up breeding her.

: I am from California, not too far from Disneyland.

I thought I would reply down here so we don't get confused! ok just so I don't get confused! LOL I got my lab from a rescue group, she was found wondering around a few towns over pregnant with puppies. So there is no way to know if she is AKC registered or not. But papers don't really matter to me. I am thinking of breeding way down the road when the kids are older and we have more time and such. "Show Quality" means that they meet they AKC standards for showing, such as back, legs, coloring and such. I don't even think that a dog has to be AKC registered to show, just as long as they meet the standards. Yes I would suggest buying books, or heck even searching online, I bet you can find a lot of info without having to buy books. Not far form Disneyland huh? Can I come live with you!? LOL
