Labrador Retriever Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 7/30/2004
of the labrador retriever? I have purchased a wonderful female, who is now 1 1/2 years old. I've spent a lot of time training her and she has already proven to me that her duck retrieving skills are only going to get better. I have had a lot of compliments on both her appearance and how well behaved she is. With that, I have been considering breeding her, but am curious to what the desired confirmation of labs are. I have seen the short blocky type, and the taller leaner type. My female is the latter, is there any preferred type and why?? Thank you!
