So, if you had to choose between these two breedings, which would you go with?
Taylor ( Tangleloft Double Play) ex Nautilus Just a Gigilo
Sonnet ( Tangleloft Grand Slam) ex Hooch (Tangleloft The Heat is On OS) ( and, what does OS mean??)
They are all really nice looking dogs. I wonder if the Sonnet ex Hooch litter would be more red, since they are both more red?
I looked through some of the offspring where I could find pictures on k9data and all were attractive and nicely built dogs.
Taylor and Jag are not very big dogs, though they supposed to be "standard" size.
Don't know about Hooch and Sonnet.
I had questions about clearances I couldn't find online, but have been assured that they all exist for all dogs in question, and that sometimes breeders don't send them in or post them all on k9data. Also, have been told that elbow clearances were not standard in 2003 when one stud had hips checked. ( ?)
Missing clearances makes me a little nervous, but since they are offered to whoever wants to view them, that helps.
WAY Better than a few years ago when I was looking at breeders and without knowing any better, I sent a deposit to a breeder in upstate NY on a litter. When I started reading and learning a little, I asked about their dogs clearances, and they wrote me an angry email saying if I was so dissatisfied and had so many questions, I couldn't have a puppy from them...and they kept my deposit.
It was a lesson well learned, and I would rather spend $100 to learn it that way, than spend thousands to learn the hard way. ;-)
But, I digress....
So...what do you all think?
I am kind of excited about the possibility of a pup, for the first time in a long time!
