In Celebration of the Black Labrador
Hunters use Labrador’s as a ‘flushing’ dog that will retrieve the game once down. Both upland game birds and waterfowl and generally hunted using Labradors. Labradors have come to be one of the favorite family house pets in Britain today due to its wonderful personality, gentle disposition and loyalty.
The Kennel Club recognised Labrador Retrievers as a breed in 1903. Labradors were originally called a St. John’s Dog or lesser Newfoundland dog. The breed was in Newfoundland in the 1700’s and imported to England beginning the early 1800’s. The Labrador’s exact origin unknown but some speculate the Greater Newfoundland dog or the French St. Hubert’s dog is part of the cross that made the St. John’s dog.
In 1887 the Earl of Malmesbury first coined the name Labrador in a letter he wrote referring the them as his Labrador Dogs. The Territory of Labrador is just Northwest of Newfoundland geographically. Richard Wolters in his book the “Labrador Retriever” writes that the 19th century Brits lumped that area together as the same land mass, so it could have referred to dogs from that area.
Today the Black Labrador is a much loved dog, being the UK’s number one favourite.
