Apart from my US import, I have not purchased a dog for 13 years.

I have 3 generations.

How many generations, have RTF posters owned?

Here are 3 generations: Grandmother Nugget - (Pregnant)Mother Dusty - Son Jive.

We have a picture some where of 4 generations. In that picture Jive is substituted with his Sister Sassy and her son, Sunny represents the 4th generation. We lost Nugget 2 years ago at 14.5. We could still have a 3 generation picture with Dusty - Jive and a sister's daughter, Fancy.
I love to keep the lines going.

Aussie, We bred our original Lab 12 Jan., 1982, kept two females out of her on that first litter and have gone on from there. We have bought only five females to bring into our line and of those only one has been the dogs we wanted to be able to breed and carry on our blood line. The one was a dog Cleo brought back from Germany and she is beautiful. The others, for one reason or another, did not measure up to what we were looking for.

Almost of all of our dogs go back to that original Lab female, William J.'s Queen of Cork (Corky). There are alot of generations represented in our Gator Point line and it has been an interesting ride where we have met a whole bunch of wonderful people, some of the members of RTF included. I believe 5 litters is the most we've ever had in a year and ONCE we had 3 litters on the ground at the same time, but never again.

We have had a lot of help from some of the most learned breeders in the nation and deeply appreciate it. The last 50 plus breeding's over the last 11 years have been frozen semen, surgically implanted by Greene and Assoc. in Folsom, LA and have only missed one breeding with R O C 'n" Moon Pie, she had a uterine infection, was cleared up and the next cycle she presented us with 12 pups, all good. It's been fun! Bill

My current is 5 generations and 4 decades removed from my first. Unfortunately in CBRs that is not hard to do.

Thanks for the replies so far, there is a reason my posting this particular question. ie. knowing your lines.

Enjoying the photos too.

Bill, you imported a dog from Germany which could not be registered by your AKC? I had no idea, Germany had more than one registry.

I currently have 3 generations, with the first of this line having crossed the rainbow bridge 9 years ago. So I actually have the second, third and fourth generation in the yard right now. Second generation will be not around for much longer so I have some pics of the 3 generations together.
In the 4th generation I have 2 half sisters out of my 3rd generation dog and it is very iteresting to see the differences between the two. My youngest is only 8 months old so too youg for close comparison, but the differences up to this point is interesting.

Neat idea for a thread.

We have three generations:

Grandma 13 yrs young next week
Mom 7.5 years
Granddaughter 18 months

I also have another 3rd generation pup (same grandma). I don't own her sire or dam, but I bred the sire. Does that count? :wink: :D

Let me see if I got this right...
So you have a pair of siblings who are cousins to your other pair of siblings.
