Default Geeking Out

How many of you know and/or have kept in contact with your dogs' littermates or other relatives?

Lauren and I were talking about this today as we drove around and I'm such a nerd that I want to collect Buzz's siblings. A dog I swear was his littermate brother showed up on the local ESRA rescue page and I tried to get him but the owners never emailed me back.

I've kept in contact with two of Bailey's half sisters but no full siblings, and I don't talk to her breeder anymore. Bailey's oldest half sister we kept in contact with died just a couple months ago. She was 16 years old! Her other half sister is younger and still doing competitive obedience and agility!

I do know that none of their littermates were ever shown in AKC events, because I geek out on things like that and can figure it out...

Not so much contact (I do know a few of Sloans half and full from a repeat litter siblings) but I do like to track them on I look at their titlings and see if they're being bred, etc.

Backup has a sister I totally geek out on.

Aww, I wish I knew if there were Lucy siblings around! That's one of the downsides of having a pound puppy, I suppose.

I know of a few of Mia's siblings and follow them on her breeder's website. I've seen pics and gotten a message from her only littermate's owner also.

I haven't seen Summer's littermates except for as pups. The other two were pet quality. Of course I keep track of Summer's little half sister though (who happens to be the same as Beau's little half sister). That's the nice thing about having siblings.

I'm pretty good friends with Rage's breeders, so I keep up on the majority of her family (as they owned both the sire and dam of her litter), and I know the owner of one of Liz's full sisters, so I keep up with her a bit. I knew where one of her other full sisters was, but sadly she died in the last few years when he got started selling off most of his dogs, I actually called to see if I could get my hands on Angel, and that's when he told me the bad news...

I'd keep up with Daisy's breeders, but they're friends of my ex, so I have no way of getting their contact info but to go through him, which I can't do... heh.

Traveler's sister and brother from his litter I've not been able to keep up with. I got one picture of his sister when she was about 5-6 months and that's it. BUT the repeat breeding of his parents I'm friends with four of the people that got puppies so I've been able to watch them grow up and it's been great.

Kaylee's littermates owner actually joined chaz around the same time I did when he got Kaylee's brother (Completely and utterly by chance might I add). I kept in contact with him for a little bit but haven't kept up with it.

And Didgie....well Hi Sara and Zinga!

I don't know anything about Gavorche's past or relatives.

I know about Logan's parents and his sister Gala (I love her to bits!), and then there's a couple half siblings I know the whereabouts of. I also know someone else that has a young collie that is fairly closely related to Logan, but from a different breeder (I want to say they're cousins or something, but I always forget).

I would snatch up one of Logan's nieces in a heartbeat <3

Going by AKC registrations, I know the schnauzers and poodles have littermates somewhere out there. Tsuki has a sister, just by name alone I think is at another mill.

Charlie was transferred up from down south and was in at least a litter of 3, there was a brown pup with them though the other two pups were spotted like Charlie. I'm always halfway tempted to post an ad on CL and see if anyone local adopted her littermates.

I only keep track of one of Steve's littermates, but I see half-sibs, aunts, uncles, and more distant relatives all the time.

I am excited because I will get to see three of Bean's littermates on a regular basis. One is staying with the breeder, one is going to a friend of mine from a local training club, and another is going to someone who runs on another flyball team in our region.

I'm friends on fb with Aeri's littermates' owners and I talk regularly with her breeder.
