    Ha! That's funny Bill.

    I do think there's a market for 7 yr old AFC's though! Solid # of litters left to be sired!

    Guys if we ever attain that/ those prefixs the pooch will probably own me . Me and countless others over the years have spent a lot more than these numbers being tossed around.

    As the ad somewhat goes an AFC FC would be priceless and very highly cherished at this home

    By changing just a few words ,this sounds like some hunters " why would anyone pay $500 for a dog " it also falls in line with " why would someone pay $60G for a new truck " .....these questions can be answered in one way ......cause they want to.

    You'd be surprised how few litters a FC AFC sires in his lifetime. They can't pay for the food they eat in most cases.

    Grady probably generates over $ 200,000.00 in stud fees per year... same goes for the popular Show studs... Those dogs are priceless, and you don't ever sell them.

    That may be a little over estimated as that would put him near 100 breedings yearly.......unless I'm really naive

    Somebody figured up on this site once that Lean Mac had sired enough to get close to a million bucks. That's 400 litters @$2500. Eight years of breeding plus frozen. It could have happened.
