Dawn,

The article that Kathleen linked to does list the longevity difference. Yellow and black labs lived, on average, 12.1 years (combined), compared with 10.7 years for chocolate labs – a difference of 1.4 years. Not huge, but statistically significant (i.e., unlikely to be due to chance alone).
