Color Certification:

We certify  our foundation dogs as to color type. 

Mickey is a Silver Lab, and although the certification says chocolate is the DNA coat color, its all a question of semantics.
Since the AKC doesn't recognize the Silver as a color type to its own, but as a variation of the chocolate coat, it
will show the color as Chocolate..

NEW DILUTION GENE TEST BY THIS COMPANY


 

    Distribution of color in the individual hairs of the dog are the primary reason we see coat colors
as they appear on the dog.  Below is a chart showing photomicrographs of individual hairs from the
different colors of Lab's.  

    Note: The hair shafts of both the charcoal and silver are very similar to each other, even while
showing characteristics of the other colors such as the yellow and chocolate Labs.
