In the Rules and Regulations of every respectable Labrador Retriever Club in the world, you will find similar objects: “The object(ive)s for which the Club are established are:
(a) to promote and encourage the well-being and interests of the Labrador Retriever and the breeding, improvement, and type of the Labrador Retriever as laid down by The Kennel Club Breed Standards.”
Accepting that the Kennel Clubs are registering dilutes as purebred Labradors, “silvers” as chocolates, “charcoals” as black, and “champagnes” as yellow, is a violation of these objects, a violation of the rules and regulations.
In the near future Labrador Retriever Clubs will need to explain themselves. What have they done against the dilute problem? And was it really all they could do?
