A Chip Off the Old Block

I found a photo of Cabana's dad, Bosworth, on the Utah County Puppy Raising Group site. He's a handsome fellow, and I can see why he's the papa of so many GDB litters. Cabana must have gotten her coloring from her mom, Darlene--but I laughed when I saw Bosworth's knock-kneed sit. It's exactly the same as Cabana's!!

Previously, I had blogged about my concern for Cabana's sloppy sit. But if Bosworth made it as a prolific breeder with his knees turned in, I think it's safe to say Cabana's are healthy, too.

If anyone has a photo of Darlene or knows where I can find one, I'd love to see it!

Aww, so cute! I love seeing my puppies parents, Franklin is the spitting image of his momma! And Pilaf acts just like her mom. =]

That's hilarious! I love it! He is a handsome fellow though :)

Don's a BOSWORTH PUPPY TOO- I swear, he looks JUST like his father. I think I've seen this photo before- a big thanks to Utah County for their great website. Don hasn't started doing the "frog sit" yet but if he ever does, I'll know who he got it from :) As for Cabana's mother, I haven't seen any pics of her yet, but I'll keep my eyes open.

thepuppyraiser--thank you, thank you!! I'm shocked by 2 things. First, how did Cabana turn out so light colored when her parents are both so dark and red?! Second, how do you have all those photos of breeders?! It's like finding a gold mine!

We never met either of the parents of the two Guides my wife has gotten from GDB, but the sister of her active Guide was raised by the local 4-H Guide puppy club that we are now raising a Guide pup for. It gave us a kind of "connection" and is allowing us to "give back" a little when others have "given in" so much so that my wife could be more independent.

Mariahleadme, it's so awesome that you are "giving back" in this way. And your family has so much to offer, since you know what the "end result" should be. I wish I knew more about how the dogs "work" so I could be a better informed puppy raiser.
