Default Like mother like son.


Bean's mother.


Steve's mother:

Bonus Steve's mother because hilarious:

Steve and his Uncle:

Does anybody else get to see their dogs' relatives on a regular basis? I love it. I just get such a kick out of it. I look at Steve's mom and I so see my dog in her face, in her expressions. Bean has his mother's head as well. And her big mouth.

Those are some cool comparison shots! Bean and his momma sure do look alike!

I've never met a single one of Buzz's relatives.
I know/knew two of Bailey's half sisters. One is now deceased and we used to track with the other, but not anymore.
I haven't the faintest idea where Gabby's family is.

I love Steve and his mom! Those are great shots.

When Kaia's breeder first met me and Strider about 30 seconds after seeing him she asked if he was out of Leicro. I was like, how on earth could you tell so fast?!? She just told me to go look at their website.


His great great grandpa. That sadface is genetic. lol

Kaia looks identical to her mom. They just flat out look like the same dog.

Great pictures! And Steve looks so much like his mom, I love it!

I get to see my dogs' family members pretty frequently, especially their siblings - it's fun to see the similarities between them.

And Newton is pretty much the male version of his mother:

I love those comparison shots elegy. I can definitely see the family resemblance.

I don't get to see close relatives often, but I do get to see Cohen's nephew every once in a while.

They're pretty different when it comes to their personalities, but both are still distinctly Aussie.

I see Watson's mom at shows on a fairly regular basis, along with plenty of other relatives. He doesn't look or act much like his mom and I think he takes after his dad's side. I've never met his dad but I see his uncle (dad's littermate) and cousin regularly and they are so so much like him. His cousin Max has the same crazy confident "look at me!" personality. And like Watson, he has to be walked around the show for at least an hour so he can keep it together in the ring. Haha

Keira and Ripley's sire and dam are both deceased now, so I don't get to see them of course (although I used to see their dam, Shelby, all the time). I do see most of their siblings and other relatives (half siblings, aunts, uncles) regularly though and it's fun to compare.

Dance's sire lives in the Netherlands now and her dam went to a new home never to be heard from again. I don't see any of her siblings either. I wish I could. I did get to spend some time with one of her sisters a few years ago, but not since.

I wish I could spend time with Journey's relatives. Based on what I got to know of both of her parents last year when I spent time with them, she seems a very nice blend of both temperament and personality wise. Appearance wise she reminds me a lot of one of her grand dams and she resembles her sire a lot as well. Hearing what I've heard of her siblings, there seem to be a lot of similarities between all of them too temperamentally (and one sister really reminds me a lot appearance wise of Journey too - just a different colour) and I'd love to spend time with every one of them one day if possible. I love doggy family reunions.

Bear is like his mother, very laid back and easy to work with. But he looks like his father, same tri patch on his eye ... Only on opposite eyes
If there are any typos, it means I am on my phone LOL
