Anybody bred those in a while? I've had the grand sum of 1 (lol). With all these posts about "not showable IRL", I thought about trying for anotherrazz :p Yeah, I just wanna do it to show off what I can do. I don't honestly care about DD.

This was the DD I had a LONG time ago (seems like ages anyway1) www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=12230441

BTW, I do have dapples...at least I hope I still do...yikes, I FHed that one..

Have you looked at old studs? I might make a list of old studs in the future...

Anemios has one, and she's leaving the game so I believe he's for sale!

Maybe we should have a "Noah's Ark" of colors...

Perhaps a forum topic to be sure we have at least one male and one female per color? Perhaps excluding frowned upon things like double dapples.
I'd be happy to make one and set up a sort of template if you think it would be useful.

I breed and show standard smooths and wires in real life and was, initially, very against double dapples on here. However, Showdog is just a sim game of "pixel pups," and there are no health risks for any living thing. Since this is just for fun, I don't have a problem with breeding for double dapples only on Showdog (it sickens me to see one in person), since it is merely just strategizing genetics to get the color you want and helps people learn dachshund genetics a bit more happy :) I know Alexandria is aware of the problems DDs are prone to in real life and these breedings wouldn't translate over to any real life breedings. I can see your concern, though! happy :)

This is a fairly awful article, factually. It IS true that double dappling is a serious issue in RL, but this article also got quite a few facts wrong.

Plenty of single dapples have 2 blue eyes, and the blue eyed- non-dapple gene does sometimes seem to occur in doxies.

And it is absolutely not true that the piebald gene always results in symmetrical markings.

And the description of how she supposes the genes overlap, made me cringe. It is not like one M starts at the tail and the other M starts elsewhere and "where they meet is white" I'm not sure it is known exactly what turns the merle gene in in a certain location, but that layman's description, is almost surely not it.

I didn't read the article since I've read plenty of material from DCA on this subject (huge controversy over piebalds being shown now and DDs are just unspeakable). However, now that I look, it really isn't factual at all.

If you are completely ignorant of genetics you shouldn't be breeding in RL.

And the whole coloration starting at one end of the dog and meeting thing...I hope that's a metaphor.

I don't have an issue wih breeding double dapples on SD, but in RL...awful.

I know it's bad in RL...I've studied genetics until I'm purple lol. But, in the game it has no side effects, so why not?

And that article is weird...

Did you know?
There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
Did you know?
Additional points may be awarded to the Best of Winners, or a class dog that goes Best of Breed or Best of Opposite Sex, again depending on the number of dogs competing
