Which I also said to you in my PM, Dovey, this pictured pup does look like a black, (but just might still turn out bi-colour) and it is possible for two black&gold adults to produce black pups occasionally (plus there is always the consideration that a different stud dog may have sneaked in !). Perhaps I should also elaborate on what Q Man says: if you surf around PDB a bit, you can find various threds on the fact that more and more 'all black' dogs these days start to develop what we often refer to as "break through" colour markings as they grow up: some brown agouti-like marks on their legs, and sometimes bellies or heads. The jury seems to be still out on exactly what this means genetically. This is completely separate from the fact that a lot of black dogs have a small white chest spot, and / or a few white toes - which may or may not be present from birth. And may, or may not, stay with that dog into adulthood.
