My intention was not to review Dallas's direct or indirect contributions - I am 
very aware of what they are. But rather to ask the question of whether any 
other dog(s) with similar strengths would have accomplished the same or perhaps 
even more. 
by benefiting from the formula that he did. 
I don't deny the success, I analyze it honestly to determine its value to me as 
a breeder and how it came to be 

Additionally I wanted to give particular credit to those breeders with fabulous 
bitches who produced those sons that are better then the father in all aspects, 
since the original poster had omitted their contribution completely 
Kudo's to the momma's who I think contributed far more then you think, 
particularly to those at the top of the heap. 

regards, 

M

I agree that some very nice bitches were bred to Dallas. We had some problems 
in our breed; lack of bone and substance, over all soundness mentally and 
physically. Dallas was able to balance this out. The owners were smart enough 
to go out and find the right bitches. More power to them! What is lacking in 
some posts is recognizing the fact that the dog obviously passed on some great 
genetic traits through his sons/grandsons. You can't deny this when you go to 
highly competitive shows and see the winners. 



Successful breeders also know they need to go into another gene pool to build 
on the good. I agree with you 100%. We certainly have some lovely animals out 
there from the Dallas lines to build a future on. Hopefully, the over all 
soundness will stick from the progeny and and hopefully breeders will take the 
progeny and utilize other lines. One only needs to look at our recent 
publication of ROM's stud dogs in the review to see a trend. 



What I object to is some hurtful bashing and the lack of respect for our fellow 
dog friends and neighbors. 



Respectfully and no bomb threats - lol

I guess we can continue on, and push these issues or discussions back into the 
shadows and not allow them to see the light of day, I for one feel it is just 
this type of levity that is needed to help us move forward as a breed. 
Certainly we can learn from the SV in this regard, If we can not get our 
problems out in the open under the scrutiny of our own community - we will fail 
to others who will, and we will be relegated to those very same shadows where 
we belong. 

I stand by my earlier comments Dallas was breed to some fantastic bitches... 
the results speak for themselves(both good and bad). Who will the next great 
dog be, I guess we wait for the passing of the torch and apply the formula 
again, and again 

Let me know when you all are willing to have an HONEST and OPEN discussion and 
let it all hang out. 

Rumor has it a hit was put out on me, for speaking my mind and putting pen to 
paper where many wouldn't dare to go but secretly agree. 

Gotta go build a bomb shelter, 

cya.
