What is the difference between a Golden and Yellow Labrador Retriever?

Labrador Retriever Name: Bounty

Reader's E-mail - Marrisa Writes:

Hello Miss Fay,

My family and I love both of your blogs. We have ourself a chocolate Labrador Retriever, 3 years who goes by the name of Bounty. He is the best dog in the world and we love him so much.

We want to add another Labrador Retriever to our house. We have decided on a yellow Lab!

My father keeps saying we are getting a Golden Retriever but I tell him wrong, it's a yellow Labrador Retriever. I know I am wright but he also thinks he is wright. Please let me know the correct answer.

Thank you,

All About Labradors Answer:

Hello Marrisa,

The information given here is to help you learn more about your Labrador Retriever and not to replace your veterinarian's advice. Disclaimer:

Thank you for your e-mail and the nice words about both blogs. Congratulations on your choice to get another Labrador Retriever (notice how I state Labrador Retriever).

Yes Marrisa, you are correct. Yellow Labrador Retrievers are often mistakenly called "Golden Labradors" or "Golden Retrievers"."

Labrador Retrievers come in three colors, with those colors being chocolate, black and yellow. Although there are similarities, The Golden Retriever is a separate breed from the Labrador Retriever.

Sorry Dad, Marrisa is right on this one (good girl Marrisa)! Please keep me up to date when you do get your new yellow Labrador Retriever and tell Dad not to take it so hard.

Takes care of yourself,

My next dog is going to be a black lab. Golden Retrievers are beautiful but seem to have been over-bread; I have met some not so smart ones the last few years.
