Is an occasional mismark that bad in labs? Honestly, it seems to me that if both parents are healthy, structurally sound, and of good temperament, it shouldn't be that big a deal. Most sources say that only a few pups in any litter are worth showing anyway. Any black and tans can be sold as pets with a neuter contract. If there was some sort of genetic health problem associated with the black and tans (like double merles), I could see the point, but there doesn't seem to be any.
I fear I'm of the "genetic diversity is good" camp.
