COD in K9data

I just don't understand why breeders/owners don't fill in the COD on dogs in k9data......its invaluable information withheld, why? I assume cancer obviously....but wouldn't it be better if we knew what kind, and how to breed to improve longevity, by not combining dogs that have a history of a similar cancer.... I also think K9data should add a spot for a PU diagnoses...I sometimes see it on the "honorifics", but that isn't something someone wants to take down their dog won a BIS, for oh yeah he had PU at 8years(since the allowed characters are limited). It would encourage breeders and owners to be more forthcoming. Just my thoughts...anyone have input why someone wouldn't put the COD? (I know sometimes you don't know, but I have seen "unknown" filled in the area, that still gives more info than a blank spot. )

I have said it in the past, if the death date is there, but not COD, I always assume cancer and take note at how old the dog was when it died.

I completely agree. I have recently been helping a friend try to find a stud dog. When I go to see longevity or COD, it is frustrating as many are blank. I think it is even more essential when we're talking about "the big players" that were incredibly influential in our breed. How did they die?? It is something that needs to be known to make solid breeding choices.

I understand when the pain is still fresh in one's mind and you don't add anything for a few weeks or months... but I appreciate that. I appreciate it even more when those owners go back and add the info as they have healed.

And my first 2 goldens had a pretty definitive diagnosis of hemangio sarc, although no definitive aspirates were done. My last girl, had a clean thoracic and abdominal ultrasound... the specialists insisted it was anaplasmosis.. I believe it was spinal cancer, but never got the diagnosis. And some breeders are much more open about the eye issues. The problem is if everyone isn't open, then people point fingers at the ones who have it out in the open.

One dog I have bred to twice had a dad who died young from a car accident... but it's not on K9 data... just the death date.

well with the car accident, that just doesn't make sense...and as an optimistic person, I can't help but see the blank COD, and think "oh maybe it was something else"...but deep inside I know it was likely cancer. I think if we knew generally what was thought to be the type of cancer, it would still be helpful, if not in a scientific way, at least qualitatively so. Especially as more information is discovered, having a solid record of the past can only help us make breeding decisions.

I understand the idea that those who are open, and others aren't, it makes them look bad. But after getting more experienced, I'm worried when there isn't that information that is a little scary. Like if there are no failing results on OFA, or anything about PU/cancer/cataracts/ED/HD on K9 data, I assume, they aren't being open, vs. their line being far superior than other dogs of similar pedigrees.

I could be wrong, but isn't the COD line on k9data relatively new? Maybe people just aren't used to thinking about going in and adding it?
