That means a lot coming from you as you have been successful in herding with your dogs. This is a venue that I am new to so I have a more humble attitude because so many here know more than I do and I'm trying to learn. I speak on what I know and listen when I'm in forum that I haven't actively participated in. She is really loved by the instructor and is bringing her out of retirement in terms of competeing....good for me!!
She was starting to lose focus after being out there for about twenty minutes, and was looking for Daddy...lol
Dura is a DDR dog out of East lines. She is linebred on Sven v Grafental. I have her to compliment my West and Czech lines. She has great hunt drive and that is an important trait to me. She also goes back to old DDR herding lines, which were strong in functional conformation and working intelligence.
Ah, interesting Cliff! I would not have guessed that she was your DDR girl! Although the pics are far away, she's doing look as "stacked" as most DDR dogs seem to be. I'm glad I'm getting to see the pics of all your puppers now! I was wondering what they all looked like!
