I don't know if this is true, I was just wondering.

So now you have a BYB puppy that has a CH grandparent - and those puppies are "CH lined". Titles aren't everything - but they say a lot IMO.


Oh yeah "Champion Bloodlines". Love it. While "technically" it is true, it means NOTHING when the champions are SOOO many generations back. My "favorite" MI "breeder", She Who's Name Must Not Be Uttered", advertises that " Our lines are the best with ch. Goldrush, ch. Asterling's, ch. Gold Coast, ch. Birnam Woods, ch. Sandy Hills, and ch. Cummings as our foundation." At least one of those kennels requested that she cease and desist using their kennel name in her ads.
