Want to Learn About Puppy's Pedigree!

As Puppy grows older, I'm able to appreciate more her personality than when she was a needy little baby. I wanted to learn more about her personality, and other dogs that have contributed to her personality. This is my first time really looking at pedigrees, so please phrase your responses in "dumb newbie" speak. I'm interested in seeing the variation in how common genetic backgrounds express themselves in different dogs.

1. Have you met any of the dogs in her pedigree? What are your impressions of them? What kind of situation did you meet them in, formal or relaxed social setting?

2. Do you have a dog that has a common pedigree? What are some highlights and weaknesses you see in the expression of their temperament. Is your dog easy to live with? Biddable? Velcro, etc?

3. Even if you haven't personally met, please share knowledge/resources of dogs in her pedigree!

Here is her brother on PDB.

Absolut Von Huerta Hof

Thanks everyone! I look forward to the responses, which will no doubt make a great read!

Wouldn't Robin be the best person to chat with about this?

I would be calling her up and having a nice cup of tea and just chat with her for hours!

Haha yes she is Elisabeth. But I'm also curious about what people have seen and lived with. There are many dogs in my pedigree, so I'm curious about how these dogs have expressed themselves in different combinations and different offspring and how they've translated to companions as they've grown.

To be honest though, even if I sat Robin down for a nice long chat, I won't know where to begin asking questions! Last time I sat Robin down for a phone chat, she went on for an hour, and all I did was nod and listen since I was so new to it all!! SHe is wonderful, patient, and knowledgeable...but I need to do some homework of my own! You can see from my post, I'm asking very broad questions...so I hope to start here, and gain some knowledge.
