What qualities and virtues have been contributed
by key dogs in the stud's pedigree? Comment on
important breedings in the stud dog's pedigree.
He is doubled on Ch. Clouddawn's Grandeur Promise
which contributed to his eye and expression. We credit
Joker's Wild for the flat filled skull and Ch.
Marnus Gold Medalist for balance and sound movement.
Comment on successful outcrosses as represented
in the stud's pedigree.
Piper is basically a product of linebreeding. The
one outcross in his pedigree is Marnus Afterglow to
Gold Medalist. She contributed a very long lean head.
He added a flat skull along with body balance and
soundness. Breeding their daughter back into the family
solidified the virtues.
