ok ok ok forgive my ignorance here but whats the difference?????
guy keeps remiding everyone these are" labringers" = labrador x springer.....????? am i right in this???
but guy keeps saying they are NOT "sprinagadors" = springer x labrador.....????? again am i right??
if so...whats the bloody difference???? i need this explained to me
also as pointed out umpteen times........"no idea what they will be like in the field" so not bred for field so for what??? show???
alot of this n that then totally contradicts himself.....mmmm
mongrel.....cross...... granted could still end up with a cracking working mongrel..oops sorry....cracking working cross!
doesnt mean its shite coz its not pedigree or pure strain...
1. Guy is Gal
2. The breed is my friends, she called them Labringers 20yrs ago. How would you like people to call your children by another name?
3. The Sprinadors I've actually seen all look more like labs and all have been fantastic workers.
These look more like spaniels with short tails.... not been tested in field yet coz I have only had them with me for 10wks. Since my friends accident. But equally you buy/sell a pedigree (which was origenally a cross bred) in the hope it will work. You have NO guarentee of this.
4. I have not contradicted myself. I truely believe they will make good beating dogs. The short tail is a bonus for this line of work.
5. I have at all times tried to be honest. I can not answer all the questions and as my friend is unconcious she can't help me on this at the moment. But as soon as she is able i will willingly get all these legitamate questions answered. I wont bother with the petty nit picking ones.
At the end of the day what will be will be. Labs have got serious health issues through the breeding so I don't think I will listen to any Lab breeders thanks. Springers don't need hips scoring at the moment but we get all ours done as a matter of course, so we do try to breed from good stock. Hopefully by doing this they wont end up in the same problem as the Labs. No offence intended.
