I am really torn about this. She does have all the qualities that a good dog should have particularly in her train ability and desire. A friend keeps pushing but I don't want to bring any more carriers into world. Two of the studs I considered were both carriers so that ruled them out. I could have gone back to one I used before but his pups are slow to mature. We will have a male from that litter swab to see if he is a carrier. I am not just sure where the EIC comes in. Have never had it in my line before so was really disappointed. Guess that's life I may change my mind by the next heat cycle. Who knows. Thanks for asking. The only up side of this is I will be able to run lots of Amateurs this spring.
