I just bred a really nice collie bitch. The problem is she's a double dilute merle and I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with breeding/showing them. www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=16013587

Showing won't be affected all at on SD, there is no correlation between colour and showing in the game. If you breed her to a Tricolor, she will only produce blue merles, if bred to a pure for sable she'll produce merles still either mahogany or sable.

She's very pretty! You'll have fun showing her happy :) If you dont want to keep her,send her my way wink ;)

Wow nice Bitch! You should have no problem showing that girl. My DM stud www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=15937407 I was able to get points on him, with your bitch having better gait and coat she’ll Ch out fast.

Thanks for the info! I was squeamish about keeping her and breeding her because I wasn't sure if we still had defects that might show up later as part of the game. I remember being horrified when one of my puppies would suddenly develop a genetic condition.

The genetic conditions were taken out of SD a while back. I don't think there's any plans to reintroduce that aspect of the game or to make colour affect anything else. I think you'll be find with her happy :)

Did you know?
A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.
