Michelle, I just *LOVE* the dog. It reminds me so much of my black Lab puppy, Indy. His mum is black and his dad is a chocolate and so when he stand in the sunlight, I can see the brown in his undercoat. The tail on your dog even looks like his. Labs have a short otter-like tail, as they are water dogs.

You can see my sweet boy here:

He just turned a year old last week.
