Booly Wooly was mated to D'jazzy des Grèves d'Armor.YES.
I had announced that a few weeks ago( without any details)...
Why am I talking about it now?
As many of you know ( most of you) I am 150% against mating with certain lines.
I was asked if my Booly Wooly could be used because he comes from a "working line"
and he has excellent character.
AS I coincidentally talked today about "working ability"...well....he has it and it comes from Thelma and the "old bloodlines". Thelma,his mother, who is the kindest best dog one could ever have.That natural working ability. it's built in.
Thelma's daughter, Dona is a Guide dog for the blind
in Paris and they are very happy with her. They are less happy with the "working ability" of other lines...so they needed some "working dog" blood added to start a line "FOR GUIDE DOGS ONLY
" and Booly Wooly was the one who could do it. They will not be show dogs, they may all have the tail over the back, but that was not the problem addressed.
So if you read about this mating elsewhere...it was to improve a line with my
line's blood, not to make another "family" bigger.
That is not a criteria when choosing a dog.
Trainabilty, character and intelligence are.
The mating went very well. It took 5 mns?! OK, 7.
