If a kennel asks for help with bloodlines and someone steps up to help, but original kennel refuses to help anyone; how ironic is that?

Happens all the time. I helped someone in my breed many years ago, they turned around after I had taken a break and wouldn't share dogs that went back to my lines. The game needs new people who want to help each other.

Me too!

If you want into any breed I have, just ask! I can usually spare at least one or two, or half a dozen.

And . . .
Anyone who knows they are going to be gone for a while, please name and put at stud any boys.

Unless you are sure you will be back, put some or all the girls for sale without approval!

This is especially important if you have a less popular/recovering breed. I recently started to help with an almost extinct breed - there were 4 or 5 old, old studs available with high SOP. An old player came back briefly and placed some old girls up for sale and one player bought them all. They breed each once or twice. They did not seem to be willing to share the pups (FH'd a number of them), then went Basic leaving a new generation of high SOP's in limbo and unavailable to the rest of us. It was very disappointing.

I will help out anyone too. Kerry Blue Terriers need new FRIENDLY, SHARING breeders. There are 3 or 4 of us now that will share. There are some nice pups for sale right now. Also Scottish Deerhounds and Irish Wolfhounds welcome new people. Most of us are friendly and helpful too.

I vary how much time I spend on here (some months I only breed, others I'll actually show too LOL) but your post reminded me that I hadn't put my boys up for stud for a bit. When I went back and looked, it had been over a month, so thanks for the "sportmanship" reminder!

So, I recently added Dachshunds to my group. It's kind of a two pronged project. There are a number of traditional colours that have all but disappeared and the short haired variety seems to consist of one male that I now have, SOP about 19.

Anyone out there have any SH Dachsies they can get their hands on that have higher SOP and/or are of traditional colours (non dapple, none dilute)? They can be old as long as they are breedable . . .

Thanks

Studs - Yes. If there are few working on a breed it's easy to forget to put them up but doubly important to do so - especially if you are leaving for whatever reason or length.

Oh, and I had noticed that the Kerry breed has opened it's doors! Good show! If we want the game to survive we must make it welcoming to new, and returning players.

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.
