    If you haven't done it, talk to the owners about what the dogs were like in basic training and what they consider the strengths and weaknesses of their dogs. You are fortunate to be able to see them so often. Take advantage of it.

    As a note- both my bitch and Eddie are very high dogs. I am slightly concerned that these pups would be too hot to handle. Thoughts???
    IMO - I would go with sire 2, all other things being equal - Sire 1 has too much Lean Mac in the pedigree - I saw chopper train as a young dog - did not see the high some describe - what I did see was a dog that performed at a very high level, much beyond his years -

    Kali sure has a nice pedigree. Don't forget you can add the ninth Master National on to Sugar's title, LAB'S UNLIMITED LIVE WIRE MH MNH9.

    Yes. Since Pete and Eddie are the 2 choices, I'd pick Eddie.

    Otherwise, Attar has suggested I have a whole string of Ruckus pups. (and a couple of Honor's just to keep it interesting). Eddie is a half brother to Ruckus since Chopper is the sire.

    Eddie,

    I feel he has the stronger bitch lines on his pedigree especially with Keila up close. How are his previous litters doing and what bitch lines have worked best with him?

    I like Eddie's pedigree better; but I would definitely ask Dennis
