I'd love for anyone and everyone to take a look at this 5 generation test breeding off of K9data.com (love that site!) and give an opinion on the combination of these 2 dogs. I don't know a lot about pedigrees or some of these lines of goldens.
This is the prettiest little bitch, heartbreaking structure, movement to die for, and a performance dog. I love the way she works, and think that with Tito's good working temperament and hers, they would have some awesome puppies. Of course, I have to sneak in a brag that Tito got his U-CD, his U-CDX, his CD, and his CDX is 3 shows for each, all before he was 20 months old! IMO, it's interesting that neither of these two dogs is from strong hunt or field lines, but both are fantastic working dogs. So many of the professional obedience people say that only the field dogs are good for advanced obedience work but a lot of those dogs, from what I see, are just hyper, off-the-wall nuts. Now in the hands of a professional trainer, that's one thing, but not something I want to deal with. Sorry, I digress. (Oh, and Promise was born on valentine's day!)
Tito is as laid back as a dog can get, whereas Promise has more energy and drive, although nowhere near bordering on "hyper" or even what people like to refer to as "busy" these days (!).
Structurally, they are quite similar. Neither one is excessive in any way; both have nice front ends and toplines. Pretty headgear on each, similar in type. Promise seems stronger in the back end than Tito is, and has a little more coat but again they're both young dogs.
Now before anyone gets ruffled, this is a very, very loose idea as neither dog is old enough to breed and we've not gotten clearances on either one yet. It's just kind of a fun thing to look at on a cold Chicago night.
I'd love to hear opinions, believe it or not especially if anyone has something negative to say about the combined pedigrees. It's easy for me to see the good things, but the not so good might not be apparent thru my rose colored glasses.
