    Thank you Lala, Will do then as soon as time allows, also in conjunction with two other kennels have been working at bringing back the Toy Bulldog, this time in a far healthier format than in the 1800s when he was very popular, one reason we are all so up on what is available test wise.
    And yes, plenty of Bulldogs about I know, but many do have problems we feel we can do better by starting from sctratch with all exustively tested parents andof course choosing for sensible conformation and general vigour also.

    To be fair Minibulls, I think that Crested Love might be taking exception to the fact that you have a code of ethics by which to abide by as an ANKC breeder and you deliberately flout that code.

    I must confess that this also irks me. I am not a fan of the ANKC by any means, but if you choose to belong to an organisation then you choose to sign up to their CofE.

    Breeders who choose to go against codes of ethics only make it harder for the public to be able to distinguish between a good ethical breeder and a bad one.

    It all comes down to values, morals and ethics.

    That is true Anne, but you and CL are putting your own interpretation on the code of ethics, I have in fact NOT broken it at all.
    She will find this out when she puts in her complaint.
    I am quite entitled to have and breed whatever I like as long as the two are separate

    Do you mate your ANKC registered dogs of one breed with another breed of dog?

    If so, you are breaking the CofE;
    15. A member shall not permit any of that member’s pure bred dogs to be mated to a dog of a different breed, to a cross bred dog, to an unregistered dog of the same breed, or to a dog not on the Main Register without the prior approval of the member’s Member Body

    And the CCQ CofE;
    l. I shall not permit any of my purebred dogs to be mated:
    i to a dog of a different breed;
    ii to a crossbred dog;
    iii to an unregistered dog of the same breed or;
    iv to a purebred registered dog of the same breed that is not the property of a current financial CCC(Q)
    member and in the case of a bitch, where that aforementioned member does not hold a valid breeders prefix.
    Perhaps I have missed something though? I am happy to hear what this is. It all seems pretty self-explanatory to me though, but I am happy to be corrected.

    That was my point Anne, if MB is using any registered Neos in her program then it is against the CofE.
    I don't know if that is what she is doing or not but you only get so many outstanding dogs in your lifetime, I can't see someone choosing one program over the other when it would be so easy to interchange dogs.
    If you want exceptional bandogs you would use only outstanding stock... but then the outstanding stock you would want in the show ring where people can see it...

    It's a fine line and one that can be crossed easily without anyone ever knowing.

    That was my point with CD having her cake and eating it too.

    I noticed that Minibulls was reading the thread, and I assume (although it is an assumption only) that he/she read my quotes. I am left to ponder why they didn't respond and if I am honest I can only come to one conclusion.

    Their mistake may simply be a mistake. If you do not realise you are doing wrong, is it still wrong?

    All my dogs have been DNA profiled for years, so if you think I have used registered dogs over unregistered or cross breds you are quite welcome to pay for and get proof of what has been bred to what.
    Outstanding is in the eye of the beholder, I would not use one of the dogs (Neos) Jemima has put on her dog blog one of which won at CRUFTS, even to cross it!

    I look for the smaller plainer Neos, not what you are likey to see in the show ring.

    Do you use registered dogs of one breed over registered dogs (or any dog) of another breed though?

    How do you 'create' your Bandogs?
