It is not known if the young mum, Lucy’s golden labrador, had to blush and make excuses as to whether the babies are hers. This is usually the prerogative of fathers. But this is a unique case here, it’s strictly the other way round — the mum is blonde, but the little ones are all as one night colour!
It looks a little bit unusual, like staging — gold colour mother and black cubs
The owner, Catherine Smith, was confused. Lucy is a young dog, her first delivery, so she was expecting five, seven puppies at the most. So when the tenth one arrived, the owner was rather worried. And when the delivery was over and a pile of radical black puppies swarmed around the blond dog, the question arose by itself: could it be like that?
However, no miracle happened. Daddy’s genes were simply stronger than Mummy’s, and in this case, the daddy was the neighbour’s purebred Labrador, Bastion. Black, black, and not the first time he had fathered puppies of the same adorable colour. It must have hurt Lucy’s feelings, but there’s nothing she can do about it.
The story made the pups famous and the Blackies were quickly sold out — the pups quickly found new families!
