    Default The advantage of owning a pedigree dog

    I got bored.... I dunno if anyone will find this interesting... but I do, so I thought I might share it!

    I was looking at the dogs listed on Koda's papers (3 generations back). One thing led to another, and I ended up going way back into Koda's family history. The power of the internet

    This dog is as far back as I could find in the line I was following... Koda's Great X 12 Grandfather, born in the USA in 1964.

    I found this dog too, thought his colour was pretty awesome and different from what you typically see in Aussies now days. Koda's Great X 7 Grandfather, born in the USA in 1973.

    I think its awesome being able to look back into the history of my dog like this! Wish I could do this with Dodge!

    I can do that with my human ancestors - but not with my dog's.

    I did that with my working Border collie, he is registered with a working sheep dog association. Quite a few of his great great great grandparents were International Supreme herding champions and Welsh farmers champions back in the UK. I googled their names and registration numbers and was able to get some information on them. It was really cool.

    I always chuckle that he is not considered a real Border collie by the ANKC despite his very long pedigree containing some very highly regarded old Australian and Scottish working lines. I have to nominate his breed as "sporting register" when I enter agility trials and ANKC herding trials LOL.

    I love doing the research on mine too...i even know the lines of my rescues as they were chipped and traced back to the breeders.
