    Default If your only goal was FC/AFC...

    If nothing else mattered, which stud (that still has straws or is still breeding) would you go with? EIC carrier/clear doesn't matter, color doesn't matter. Not talking about what the female brings to the table. Only talking about studs. Don't care about size, don't care about speed, don't care about on/off switch. Who's your top three?

    Your "straws" comment opens up a whole can of worms. I'd go with FC-AFC Fen Wizzard for dogs that are still living. He has 16 dogs that are old enough/active enough to be in the OFA database. 3 of them are FC and/or AFC's, and I figure at least 2 or 3 more of those will title.

    Forget the sire, select a good bitch who has produced well

    If all I wanted was the title, I'd buy the dog that already had it! That is not my cuppa!

    You have said an awful lot with that statement. Got any hate mail yet?

    As for the original question, I guess maybe Lean Mac ( if thgere's any left ) or maybe Cosmo. I however, could not agree with EdA more, if it were me trying to shoot for the best. Good thing is, exceptional bitches are almost always bred to really good males. The reverse is not always the case.

    C'mon y'all play fair. Very few people get in on the really nice bitches. More often than not we mere average Joes have to start with the stud.

    Code Blue and a female carrying Qweezy's bitch line and about $50-60K to back it.
