Ummm, those are labs, not Goldens

Most Popular Dog in America is... - weather.com

I was looking at our weather forecast at the weather.com page and saw a link to an article on the 10 most popular breeds. I clicked and looked and saw Goldens were third. Then I looked at the photo grouping underneath the Golden Retriever. Go look at the one shot-a group of dogs on sand (it is the 3rd group from the left in the mini-pics under the big Golden pic). Those are labs, not Goldens.

They got 7 out of 8 pictures right. They probably have a better average there than the weathermen have perdicting the weather.

I once dated a guy who opined that Goldens are just Labs that need a haircut. Obviously we weren't together for long.

So they list Labs as being #1 in popularity... and show predominantly black labs in the photos. Aren't the darker colored labs the ones that rescues have the hardest time finding forever homes for?

I've read that too. However it seems really strange to me because everyone I know likes the black ones the best. That was my other choice for a dog, DH's first choice.
