I was exceptionally happy when this litter was born because these are the first pups of this bloodline we've had around our place in years. Their momma is of the same breeding as many of our others, but their sire is of a line that was started by a female I had when I was 7 or 8, named Jan. She was notorious for throwing the really loud colored pups and almost always had at least one in her litters that was fully white with just a few black spots.
I had forgotten how much I loved the ones with a lot of white...most of our others have minimal white markings.
Kait, I agree. I love to see them showing that much style at such a young age. I can't wait for next summer to get them on cattle and watch them really start creeping.
That's awesome!! I bet its incredible to see the line continue!! I've thought about the possibility of breeding our little Pit Puppy in the future BUT a lot of things for one have to happen, and things just have to fall into the right place. Want to get into showing him, just because I think it would be a lot of fun, but with Rodeo, and everything else going on, that doesnt look very likely, and also, there isnt really a reason to breed him. For you, I think it makes perfect sense because they are doing what they are bred to do, Id be terribly upset if one of his pups got into the hands of the wrong person! Any dog for that matter!
I've never had the chance to work with a BC, but they seem incredibly smart, athletic, trusting, and loyal!
