...and perhaps the breeder's knowledge of pedigrees has a little something to do with her talent!! :roll:
My "good dog" comment was referring more to this comment by goldenboy2:
You put a golden bitch on the derby list and people will start thinking you and Andy know something about training dogs!
To take the breeder comment a step further, putting good bloodlines together that "nick" well is an art
, to be sure.....but at the end of the day, it's up to the dog
to do the work. Some of the best talent ever bred has ended up ruined by bad training. John and Andy have obviously played a role in the dog's success as well.
If it were all
about the breeding, we'd have more litters out there producing like the Maxx/Hattie breeding did (I know....pesky Labs
....but aren't 100% of the dogs in that litter TITLED? :shock: ).
And then there's that "luck" thing....which one can never have enough of. Now, when the day comes that we can breed for that
, look out! :wink: !
Again, congrats John and Andy! I look forward to seeing her run here in Chattanooga, but I hope you're not expecting too much from your "pinch handler!" :lol: !
