OK then, you own a beautifully bred GVX, Select, Champion, ROM or just a 
darn good looking, well bred specimen of the breed and she comes in 
season.  The usual question..........who do you breed her to?  So you've 
been watching the career of this gorgeous hunk of a dog who you think 
would produce marvelous puppies with your girl.  He doesn't live too far 
away, so getting to him won't be a problem.  His stud fee is in the 
"normal" range, so you won't be breaking the bank.   He's available for 
public stud to approved bitches......no problem there.   Everything says 
"GO" except for one BIG problem...............you dislike his owner.  
Now what do you do?  Do you swallow your pride and pick up that phone 
hoping the kennel help answers so you can make arrangements through 
him?  Or do you forget about breeding to this dog who you love because 
of who owns him?  Now on the opposite side of the coin, lets pretend you 
are the stud dog owner of a great dog.  Someone wants to breed to him 
and is bringing you a top bitch..............only problem is, you 
dislike her owner.  Do you set up the breeding anyway or lie and say 
he's all booked up for the time she's due to be bred?  Do we let 
personal feelings get in the way of potential good breedings or do we 
look the other way knowing the puppies will get the best show homes 
possible?  What would you do?  Barbara
