But again, when you are using the words "extreme" and redefining this breed so it is more like (God forbid) Chessies and field labs, that's when people have to object. Breeders should not be breeding for EXTREMES. They should be looking for moderation. And they should be making sure they are keeping the breed together (physically and mentally).
