    Hi All!

    My black female lab and yellow male lab have just recently had their first litter! They are now 5 weeks now today and I’ve noticed a few of the puppies are extremely “fluffy”. Their coats do not resemble their parents shirt coats. I have done some research and have found there is a recessive gene which if found in both parents can produce “flat coated Labradors”. Has anyone else had a pup so fluffy that later changes into a traditional Labrador coat? Any help will be appreciated! [​IMG]
