Re: Linebreeding question(s)
I know I've seen people makes notes on when they line breed on a litter but usually it's a quality consistent litter (like the Wannaer Hoehen "W" litter). I guess it's a question on genetics. Can siblings produce the same progeny? I don't know.
Thinking out loud here...
If you assume that siblings might as well be the same dog because of their genetics, you can also make the further assumption that siblings are breed worthy based on the achievements of one. I know I read somewhere on here that the best dog in the litter has the same genetics as the worst dog in the litter...as an argument for looking at consistency in the litter when choosing a possible breeding dog...but you still pick the best dog. And if you had a choice between a puppy from a BSP competitor and his untitled brother...which would you choose? I would probably want the one from the BSP competitor. It's hard but when I think of me and my siblings...well we're not the same. Sure it's the same parents and genetic potential, but I think some things can be inherited more strongly in some progeny than in the others.
So, the conclusion I am going to draw here is No. It's not the same. Instead you have a 3-3 line breeding on Buddy and Bobo's parents.
