And here's another choc lab joke....

A lady woke up one morning and discovered her favorite pet, her chocolate labrador, wasn't moving.
Totally distraught, she called her vet who asked her to bring the dog in to the surgery. After a brief examination, the vet pronounced the labrador dead.
"Are you sure?", the distraught woman asked. "My choclate lab is such a great pet, he's the family favorite. Isn't there anything else you can do?"
The vet paused for a moment and said, "Well, there is one more thing we can do." He left the room for a moment and came back carrying a large cage with a siamese cat in it. The vet opened the cage door and the cat sauntered over to the chocolate labrador. The cat slowly sniffed the dog from head to toe and sauntered back to the cage.
"Well, that confirms it." the vet announced. "Your chocolate labrador is dead."
Satisfied that the vet had done everything he possibly could, the woman sighed, "Ok, so how much do I owe you?"
"That will be $330." the vet replied.
"What?!!", screamed the woman. "What did you do that cost $330??"
"Well", the vet replied, "it's $30 for the office visit and $300 for the cat scan."

Three Labrador chocolate, one yellow & one black...

Three Labrador retrievers, chocolate, yellow, and black, are sitting in the waiting room at the vet's when they strike up a conversation. The black lab turns to the chocolate lab and says, "So why are you here?"

The chocolate lab replies, "I'm a pisser. I piss on everything - the sofa, the curtains, the carpet, the cat, the kids. But the final straw was last night, when I pissed in the middle of my owner's bed." The black lab says, "So what is the vet going to do?" "Gonna give me Prozac," came the reply from the chocolate lab. "All the vets are prescribing it. It works for everything."

The black lab then turns to the yellow lab and asks, "Why are you here?" The yellow lab says, "I'm a digger. I dig under fences, dig up flowers and trees, I dig just for the hell of it. When I'm inside, I dig up the carpets. But I went over the line last night when I dug a great big hole in my owner's couch." "So what are they going to do to you?" the black lab inquired. "Looks like Prozac for me too," the dejected yellow lab said.

Then the yellow lab turns to the black lab and asks what he's at the vet's office for. I'm a humper," the black lab says. "I'll hump anything. I'll hump the cat, a pillow, the table, the sofa,whatever. I want to hump everything I see. Yesterday, my owner had just got out of the shower and was bending down to dry her toes, and I just couldn't help myself I hopped on her back and started humping away."

The yellow and chocolate labs exchange a sad glance and say, "So, Prozac for you too, huh?" The black lab says, "No, I'm here to get my nails clipped."

The Chocolate Labrador Retriever is a retriever in the class of Sporting dogs. Chocolate Labradors have come to be one of the favorite family house pets today due to their wonderful personality, gentle disposition and loyalty.

Chocolate Labradors are descended from St John's dogs (now extinct) from Newfoundland which was settled by English fisherman as early as the 1500's. The English fisherman in Newfoundland used the chocolate labrador's predecessor, the St. John's dog, to retrieve fish that had fallen off their hooks as well to help haul in fishing lines through the water. The St. John's dogs were considered "workaholics" and enjoyed the retrieving tasks given in the fishing environment.

The Chocolate Labrador has a dense, short coat that repels water and provides great resistance to the cold and water. Labradors come in 3 colors; black, yellow and chocolate. Black is the most well known color and it is dominant in Labradors. Black was also the Labrador color commonly preferred and bred for up until more recent times. It should be noted that the colors chocolate and yellow have been noted in the original St. John's dogs from the Newfoundland. They are recessive genes and were referred to as the colour 'liver' or sometimes 'golden'.

As recessive colors the yellow and chocolate labrador pups would occasionally appear in litters throughout time. During the earlier breeding programs these 'off colors' of yellow & chocolate were often 'culled' until they were finally accepted by the British and the American Kennel Clubs and registered.

Chocolate labradors are still the rarest of the 3 labrador colours, but chocolate labradors are my personal favourite!
