    Not how I do it- we just give the puppies a theme name while they are here (instead of Mr. Blue or puppy 1 they get a theme call name)- people are free to change it to whatever and pick their own...

    Exactly :)

    Without actually seeing the pedigree, the percentage in pedigree does not provide enough info. A line bred dog bred to an unrelated dog can look similar %age-wise to a breeding where...

    I am curious too, I have a pile of his DVD's and they are all good. One of my puppy buyers also attended a seminar with him recently (maybe the same one as you Tanya) and was telling me about his new...
