Black Labrador Retriever Dog Cookie

This cake was for a mom s 40th

A solid, muscular dog, slightly longer than tall, with a short, hard, easy-care, water-resistant double coat. Comes in solid black, yellow, or chocolate. The head is broad and the muzzle fairly wide. The medium-sized ears are pendant. The nose should be black on black dogs and yellow dogs, brown on chocolate dogs. A scissors bite is preferred. The eyes should have a kindly expression. The chest should extend down to the elbows, but not farther. The otter tail is strong, thick near the body then tapering, and completely covered with hair. The webbed feet aid in swimming.

History:

The Labrador Retriever is the most popular breed in the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, Canada, the Labrador was trained to jump overboard into the icy waters and haul fisherman's nets to shore. Specimens were brought to England where the Labrador's fine retrieving instincts were honed and developed. One of the best family dogs and canine companions because of his gentle, loving disposition, the highly trainable Labrador also excels in drug detection, as a guide for the blind, and a service dog for the disabled. The breed is also an outstanding obedience and field trial competitor.

Notes:

The Labrador is a generally healthy and robust breed. Beware of hip dysplasia, PRA, and eye disorders. Buy only from stock with OFA, PennHIP or another national hip dysplasia clearance and current CERF or OFA eye clearance. Can become destructive if left too much to his own devices. A big eater, the Labrador needs regular exercise and moderate rations to avoid a tendency to become overweight. Train Labradors early not to pull on the leash, as they have very strong necks. Show lines are generally heavier and more easygoing than field lines. Field lines tend to be very energetic. Often the best pets are from combination show/field stock. Loves to swim. Labrador Retrievers are very popular, leading to the sale of many poorly bred animals. Buy only from a reputable breeder.

Don't know about the dandruff, but

No, not all purebred labs have a white patch on their chest. It is, in fact, not desireable. From the breed standard (AKC):
The Labrador Retriever coat colors are black, yellow and chocolate. Any other color or a combination of colors is a disqualification. A small white spot on the chest is permissible, but not desirable. White hairs from aging or scarring are not to be misinterpreted as brindling. Black--Blacks are all black. A black with brindle markings or a black with tan markings is a disqualification. Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog
