Also, I think it's a good way to bring in a line that's absolutely not related to your dog, like many in your area might be.
I am stating my opinion on the subject of the thread, I don't see how you got out of that that I was targeting anyone - which I am not. Why would I?This comment did not appear general to me. It seemed like a target at SC.
Thats good. And I stated mine - appreciate it.I am stating my opinion on the subject of the thread, I don't see how you got out of that that I was targeting anyone - which I am not. Why would I?
Much. If you say your not then your not sorry- but if you re-read I think you can see where it was implied as I read it. Mistake.Here, let me rephrase my comment to stop your confusion...
"Also, I think it's a good way to bring in a line that's absolutely not related to the local dogs, like many in the area might be."
Is that better? I am not targetting anyone.. So stop accusing me of it.
Well yeah, saying "HEY, WE SHIP SEMEN " on a site is off putting.. I agree, and I think, as an earlier poster said, that saying to contact them personally, minus that phrase and the bragging about how many times they've done it, would be a lot more professional.BUT to advertise on a website Semen shipped and with the amount of litters they had is STUPID to me. AND what good breeder would accept that. Someone that would out this on their site is money hungry.
Well, I think that depends.I cannot help but love these two colors. I might REALLY like to have a silver standard someday.
I have been searching around looking on sites and stumbled across a site that had LOTS of colors (poodles, mini, standard...) and puppies, grant it was looking real bad already but I thought I would put my knowledge I have gained reading posts on here and there it was in bold letters........ahh pretty purple font: WE SHIP SEMEN, seriously - IMO I think some people go way to far!
I can see that. I love the Silver and cannot seem to find anyone to do some research on. I would like to have one in the future but running upon things like that website sours me:scared:Well, I think that depends.
I know a few breeders that ship semen internationally, and I kinda understand if they are trying to improve their line that this might be a good method to use. Especially if you are breeding a rare breed of dog.
For instance, in my home country there is only one breeder for pharoah hounds... and to improve her line she would either have to inbreed or import dogs from other countries... so I think importing semen would probably be more efficient for her than importing a bunch of dogs from different lines. But that's just my opinion.
Well, I think you really need to talk to the breeders about that. I can understand your concern. I mean I wouldn't buy to people who ship semen as a commodity... so that is why I always ask how much semen they ship and where too? Do they have a screening process as far as who they ship semen too? or do they ship to anyone who pays? How many offspring have been created by their shipments (that is if they even keep a record of it).I can see that. I love the Silver and cannot seem to find anyone to do some research on. I would like to have one in the future but running upon things like that website sours me:scared:
The dogs name is Ch. Randenn Tristar Affirmation, call name is YES. The sire's name was Ch. Eaton Affirmed, call name Snapper. A very typey and (poodley) male. I copied and pasted an article about it below.. this is the website http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2009/02/yes-was-top-poodle-at-westminster-this.htmlI understand what you mean. It's not the practice but the advertisement. I don't have an issue w/ AI, but it can go too far. I believe the Spoo at Westiminster last year was sired by a dog that's been dead 20yrs (or close to it). That's a little to Sci Fi for me, JMO.
I hear ya But sometimes breeders will go back in the line to keep that winning type It is the dog show world.. Different in alot of waysYou don't know why they would do that breeding?
Have you seen Yes and her record?
I pray her health to continue to be well and that of her puppies, but it is a huge concern.
Across country I can understand. And I am sure her advertisement is more subtile than the site I seen. I am working with a wonderful person now I am so excited too, but the information is great to have thank you! I love your dogs too by the way. I look at your pictures all the timeI have a friend who lives in a country very far away, who is wantijng to introduce reds to her area and is wishing to purchase a red to show. If she does she will be the first person in the entire continent to own and show and breed a red. So, it makes sense to ship semen, and makes sense for people to advertise to that kind of audience.
Olie, have you ever looked into Bibelot for a silver... Susan Fraser has been one of the premier breeders of silvers for years. Just a thought.
Why on earth would they resurrect a dog whose COI is so incredibly high.. Just asking for trouble, I would think. The tale may not be told for some time, but eventually the ugly truth will surface in this males grandchildren. What a mess! Thank you for sharing this piece on Eaton Affirmed.
