    Best book ever

    Lisa Wiess is indeed a great writer and dog shower. I personally know her and would like to take a moment to say what a nice person she is. Tons of the dogs in that book belong to great dog breeders named Ann McCall and Gloria Ennis. They are also Lisa's close and personal friends. We all know each other through the dog show world. This is a must have book for anyone who has a labrador or likes the breed. Emily and Lisa talk about breed standards and precausins and everything. P.S. The dog on the front cover is Bleu. He is a westminster champion.

    The best lab book we've found!

    This is a book any lab owner ought to have. Covers so much of what you need to know, or would want to know about labrador retrievers and the breed in general. The book includes pedigrees and photos of some of the all-time great champion labradors too.
