There they are! Darling babies!
I can't get over all those females! (poor boy!)
I've had a litter of all males and that was the toughest bunch of hombres! All but one wanted to be top dog. I always wondered if they need some girl in there to tell them to knock it off!
Love the girls and their sassy ways...
Congratulations!!!

Is this the 3rd time this breeding has been done? Why repeat it?

Your web site says that Sadie and Rojo are tested but I don't see complete/updated testing for them listed on OFA. Sadie for example, has not had a CERF since 2007. SA punches? Since Sadie's dam tested equivocal, I would think that routine SA punches would be very important.

And looking at Poodle Pedigree, I gotta ask... did you breed Rojo to Sadie for the 1st time when he was 11 months old?

Actually Rojo did that breeding :)
As I stated before many many many times before the first breeding was an accident..They do happen .. He is a quick study Thank god all is well with him.. We do not do SA,,sorry :( her mother test was a false positive I am very good friends with her breeder.. Mom never was affected and neither was dad both of whom are still alive and doing quite well I might add I will not SA punch ANY my dogs for a test that is not quantifiable end of story . I was hoping for a boy this time.. It was not to be...All my testing is up to date Sorry OFA has not caught up with it.. Busy busy ...Thanks for the interest cbrand :)

Oh, sorry. I missed that previous discussion. Did he also breed Lucy by accident then?

SA skin punches look at skin samples on a cellular level. With an SA test, there are 4 possible diagnosis: Normal, Equivocal, Subclinical, Affected. An Equivocal means that something about the skin sample is not normal. Equivocal does not mean that a dog has SA or will get SA, but it means that things need to be watched sort of like when the doc finds a pre-cancerous polyp during a colonoscopy. Most breeders who get back Equivocal results retest their dogs later to see if the skin samples come back normal. I think this dog is a good example of diligent monitoring:
http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=1136147#animal

Because SA is something that starts out at the cellular level, a breeder can't just determine that the test presented a "false positive". She would need to retest to prove that the skin was normal. Although the SA test is invasive and it only tests skin in a certain area on a certain day, it is still an important diagnostic tool. Plenty of people have SA punched otherwise healthy looking Poodles only to find that their dogs were Subclinical. I plan to continue SA punching my breeding dogs. If nothing else, it shows due diligence as a breeder.

All my testing is up to date Sorry OFA has not caught up with it..
OFA hasn't caught up with a CERF test that expired in May 2008?
