I didn't want to start a new topic but I think because I didn't My questions are going unnoticed. Or maybe I'm just impatient lol. Original question located (here). I had expressed interest when we got our first EM Hank in breeding. Then forgot about it basically because for a while we just weren't in a position financially to do it properly. We still wanted to get another EM, so as a surprise my wife and neighbor found and surprised me with my 2nd EM Roxy. I have been doing some extensive reorganisation and found Roxy's paper to register and did that online last night. While doing so, I also found Hanks. That's when I noticed this. The one with blue border is Hank's pedigree, the no border is Roxy's litter pedigree. They both share Rumsey's Lord Marmaduke of V.V. as a great grandfather. I've learned a lot since I found this forum. The main thing being I basically don't know shit( even literally). I believe these two should not be paired now because of the relation. I feel slightly trailer trashy and back hills imbreddy now lol. They haven't mated, and they will not mate if they are to closely related. Being as I don't know shit, I wanted opinions from the smart people here on the forum. I also wanted to ask if there was a way to look up if any of the dogs in either pedigree were ACTUALLY health tested or not? I feel like I got thrown for a loop due to my own idiocy. Feel free to tell me I have no business breeding at all ever, that I'm a bad doggie parent, and/or I should be taken out back and beaten. lol Let me know if you need more info or w/e. I've posted a few things I found on the other thread (linked above).
