I am still working on this page but here is just a little for now . I have a lot on information its just getting it typed up. I will have a lot of facts on here it is just going to take some time 
Many people ask me are they pure Lab ... YES they are mine are AKC 
the most common color of Lab's are Black Yellow Chocolate 

The Dilute factor 
Everyone has one
Black,Yellow ,Chocolate

are you looking for something just a little different
But with the same great personalty , the great family pet

If you like to have people stop in there tracks and take a double look 
then the Dilute factor is for you

The Base color in a Silver is Chocolate ,
you can tell the difference between a Chocolate and a Silver from both near and far. Many people sometime mistake a Silver Lab with a weim  when i have pups being delivered I am make many LONG trips out of state and every 4 hours or less I try stop to give them a break and let them run and play/eat, people will  stop and ask me it looks like a lab but the color of a weim..  
 The Base color in a Charcoal is BLACK  Also known as a DARK SILVER if you take a black lab and a charcoal lab and put them 100 yards away you could not tell them apart ( color) till they were side by side right beside you .. then you would see the difference .

I love the Charcoal it is just the little bit of difference from the normal Black . they still have a difference in there coat because of the tip of the shafts on the hair.
the shafts of the tips shine in the sun.  

The reason the dilute coat ( looks/changes) color in different light is because of absorption and reflection.
