    I believe this OP did not have the education to back up his breeding and we all feel bad about the possibility that some of those pups may be affected by EIC and that some un-knowing homes will buy them, fall in love with those pups, and possibly have to deal with this a few months down the road...

    I also believe that we at RTF will most likely never see this OP again and that we are all (those of us who DO understand the mode of inheritance) On the same page.

    No need for further sarcasm or comments truly. I suppose a few of us clearly got a bit fred up by this “advertisement” of breeding practice..

    The classified has been removed (thank you moderators).

    I know Wes, and I don't understand why you started this thread that way and then moved to this crap. What does Wes have to do with it in the first place?

    Wes is a very nice guy that I have known for a few years.

    My two cents may be worth less than that... But here it is.

    What if the OP was a well meaning (but uninformed ) young person who may have been able to learn something about retrievers from this forum? Seems the first instinct here is to blast a newbie for doing something that we find dumb... Thirty years ago that OP could have been me... I didn't know an AFC from an OFA (don't think we had them 30 years ago).

    Instead of trying to explain to them what the problem was, we blast them into last week... Never to be heard from again. Who knows, could have turned out to be a good dog person with some encouragement... There are plenty of us here that express some "out there" opinions from time to time as well. I know this person did it with a breeding, but it won't be the last back yard breeding happening anytime soon... The fact that he took the time to come here in the first place shows that he may have been willing to learn something...

    Personally, I thought that the responses were balanced, informative and emanated from a place of passion for these dogs. I'm sick of namby-pamby people who need to be coddled with their every ignorant, irresponsible and stupid thought validated. Had it up to my eyeballs.

    Their website says they have been breeding since 1976.
