Our sire Bentley....It has been recently discovered that he is not only a charcoal silver male, but
he is also the carrier of the original Bolo lines and when paired with a female carrying the bolo lines produces pups with
this throw back to the orginal labrador lines.
In 1916 the Labrador Club
was formed in England with support from Lord Knutsford (Munden Kennel line) and Lady Lorna, Countess Howe (Banchory Labradors).
Some chocolate labs are said to trace back to FC Banchory Night Light from the Banchory Kennel. He was a black dog born in
1932 in England. Night Light comes from the line of Dual Ch. Banchory Bolo (1915) who appears to be a carrier of the chocolate
gene from Buccleuch Avon. Sh. Ch. Banchory Bolo was also known for carrying a trait of white hairs under the feet (Bolo pads).
In the late 1930's Chocolate Labradors were known to be at two kennels: Tibshelfs & Cookridge. Some of these lines
connect down to NFC-AFC Storm's Riptide Star from Buccleuch Avon and Banchory Bolo.
This is called a "Bolo spot" or bolo mark. Its named after CH. Banchory Bolo one of the early Labs who had these
spots and passed them on to his get and future generations. Bolo spots are found on the back of the leg above the pad. This
is NOT considered a mismark
