In Watson's case we are friendly with his breeder and get to see some of his family at least a couple of times a year. We went hiking with Laura (the breeder) just a couple of days ago and I got to visit with his dam Amy and brother Hooligan.

In Menchi's case I send her breeder updates and am in touch that way. We are also friendly with the couple that has one of her litter sisters and exchange emails and gifts for the girls with them (they live in Seattle). I met them by chance on the Shar Pei forum after we got Menchi

Classic's littermates fell off the face of the planet. So no contact there.

Zuma doesn't have siblings because she's actually an alien from another planet sent here to rule the world.

Zinga has a sibling here in the states but I try not to contact her owner too much as I don't want her realizing the full extent of my dog geekiness... oh wait, she's a bigger dog geek than I am. Nevermind.

Actual littermates, I only keep in touch with one, a lady that owns Boone's brother, Samson.

I'm also friends with someone who has a half-sibling. And all six of the 'houlas on my SAR team are from the same breeder, so they're all cousins of a sort. lol

Bwahahahahaha I love Zuma.

we have said before it's very possible Sloan slaughtered her own littermates in an early game of battle royale.... (but I still follow 4 of them online )

I would love to find and steal all the Bailey littermates. Or at least keep up with them.

I actually find Grace's relatives to be intimidating. LOL. Anyway, her breeder does a good job of keeping track of everyone and there are a lot of communications among the owners. We're going to a reunion/field workshop this weekend and Grace will get to see her mom (and grandma, who I adore) and several of her littermates. It'll be interesting to see if they appear to remember each other.

I met Dante's sister. She was put down due to liability not long after that though. She was pretty crazy, and not in the good way.

I've stalked Macie's family online...pretty easy to find since she's from a puppymill. Plenty of stories online.

Never been able to find Zander or Gustav siblings. The girls were bottle fosters out of six. I don't know if the other four ever survived or anything. It would be super interesting to see how they turned out though.

Like I said when Megan and I were talking yesterday, I want to know if Frodo was the only dog like him produced in his litter.
So far the information that I have is:

-Sire now lives in Minnesota, I've asked to meet him and been told no.
-Never met Dam, "breeder" had aunt out with them when I met them (uh, hello you moronic 16 year old, red flag is smacking you in the face!)
-None of his siblings are in any of the databases that Megan helped me check.
-I had his littermate Izzy for 3 years, she could be stressy sometimes and didn't much care for other dogs (but was able to be in class off-leash around other strange dogs as long as she had work to focus on). She LOVED every person she ever met, definitely wasn't a "Frodo".

So I *want* to geek out, but I can't

I run into a lot of Ripley and Keira's siblings and other relatives at their breeder's house when we visit. Usually other people are there too with their dogs. Just this past Saturday we saw four of Keira's littermates (one brother, three sisters) and two of Ripley's littermates (two brothers). And Ripley and Keira are full siblings too (repeat breeding), so all of the other littermates we run into regularly are full siblings to both of them. But I tend to differentiate between the two litters and half the time forget that my two are siblings. The second litter, eventhough it's a repeat breeding, is so much different than the first litter for some reason. Temperamentally I suppose they're all similar, but all in all, the repeat litter is better looking. I've seen all of their littermates at one time or another though with the exception of two (one doesn't visit often and the other lives elsewhere). I used to see both their sire and dam a lot as well but both have died now unfortunately.

And I don't know any of Dance's siblings. I met one sister and her dam, but aside from that, nobody else. Dance is also out of a repeat breeding though and I've seen one of the females from the first litter from a distance, and I've heard a lot about her, but I've never actually met her. I did meet an older brother from that litter, though. But I wish I knew her actual littermates. I wonder what they're like temperamentally and also wonder what they grew up to look like. The one sister I did meet is nothing like Dance at all. But I don't really hang out with Dance's breeder much and haven't seen her or talked to her really in a couple of years. I did ask if she ever heard from Dance's siblings but it sounded like she hadn't.

Do you, by chance, have a Gaylan's puppy?!
