Seeing Red

See how my furs glows bright red there when the sun hits it.  Mom said I am a Lab Mix, not purebred.  Since I was dumped at a shelter she is not sure  mixed with what. I'm only about 70 pounds and my legs, though long, aren't as long as other Labs.  My furs is also a little bit longer than normal, and it's REALLY super soft and the furs on my tail is also fluffier than Barkley's was (he was purebred).

Then there's the red undercoat.

What do you think Blogville?

Flat Coated Retriever?
Irish Setter?
Angry Bird?

  1. Wow, that is really red! We thought at furst you were wounded! We are going to go with Angry Bird cuz the color match is so close.

  2. Our cousin Gypsy is a black lab and she has a lot of red in her furs too, especially when the sun shines. Even Angel Phantom had some red glows in his fur when he napped in a sunpuddle. No matter what else is in your genes, Abby, you are one very pretty girl!!! :-)

    Bit of spaniel maybe? Whatever, it means you and mums are true sisters of different mothers!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. LOL! Angry bird maybe?

    I did a google search, just because I was curious, and it says the red tint is not uncommon in black labs. It can be caused by shedding fur, sun bleaching, etc. My bet is that Barkley is a fluffy lab. :)

  6. I've got to go with Angry Bird. Whatever you are, you're YOU and that makes you perfect!

  7. Thanks everyone. Mom and Dad traveled to visit a friend of Dad's from college and his wife (also a college friend) who just had a baby. I had some company and lots of walks but Mom's tired and will check back with everyone tomorrow.

  8. you are beautiful in red or black :o) but to have some angry berd genes is not bad... some... not 99% then you would be my mama lol
