I don't know anything about any of either of my dogs relatives. =P

And I don't really care to, either. I used to kind of keep in touch with Juno's breeder, but I stopped that a while ago. It might just make me sad if their littermates turned out to be more awesome than my dogs.

I suppose it would be nice to know the health of Lucy's littermates. She's from a BYB and is fine, but any heads up of potential problems would be nice.

I sooo wish I knew if there were other Wilson's out there--can you imagine?
I did know of Baxter's brother--but lost track.

Well Kim's siblings all died in the weeks before the local folks called the rescue people to tell them a litter of puppies had been dumped...she was the only one who made it out alive. The rest disappeared one by one, presumably due to predators.

I have no way of knowing if Webster even had siblings or where he's originally from since he was a year old when I met him.

Mira on the other hand...I am lucky enough to see updates/photos of her littermates...occasionally for some, pretty regularly for others. She has one (not two but the second are only a few weeks old) litter of half-siblings as well that I have fun keeping up on as their owners post updates about their lives . As well as keeping up with her parents, grandparents, uncle, etc.

I wish I had contact with them.

By chance Duke's littermate came to my daycare when I worked there.

They looked nothing alike.

...



It'd be cool to see the rest of his fam. I'm really curious to see what his parents are like. His previous owner said his dad was very large and stocky. Which is the opposite of what he is.

Stalk 'em all the time. Well, Keeva's littermates. Macky was probably born under somebody's porch, LOL. But yeah, I'm FB friends with Keeva's breeder, and two of the owners of her brothers. Another one of her brother's owners I'm not FB friends with but I see updates through her breeder.

I've seen some of my Chows' half siblings showing. I know some of their full siblings show, but I don't think they're local.

Since I'm friends with Auggie's breeder, I know tons. One of my agility friends has a half-bro. I know two other half-bros. A Pepper/Payton uncle I think he is. Sooooo many. And of course the relatives to Payton on that side, I know several of them, including his grandma. (His great granny is Auggie's granny of course.)

I get e-mails from Payton's breeder with updates (and sometimes pics) of his sister that she still has. His brother lives in California now and the other sister is a pet in the same town breeder lives in IIRC. And of course Pepper and her sister (with Auggie's breeder) are half-siblings. =P

It would be a small nightmare trying to track down half-siblings on Payton's dad's side though. I think he's been stud dog for a fair chunk of litters at this point. Another agility person I know told me she was considering using the same dog as a stud for one of her litters, which made me feel pretty good. I did see a few dogs pop up online while researching that line of the family but I don't know any of them and have certainly never met them. I did see ONE dog on his dad's side of the family has some performance titles... but otherwise, well, I think I just don't run in the same circles as most of the folks who would have Payton relatives. It's bad enough that his breeder sends me photos of his sister all pretty and fluffed out and I send back photos of Payton in the leaves with grass sticking out of his mouth and dirt all the way up to his elbows... XD

I know one of Hobies littermates and knew his "breeder". The littermate was a brother and he recently died at 12 years.

I knew a lot of Reds relatives and her littermates...they were all put to sleep due to aggression issues. I kept on loose contact with her breeder.

I am in close contact with Judges breeder and kknow many half siblings and all of his littermates. I see many of them on a regular basis. I helped place 3 littermates..vouched for one home that turned out not so good as I thought it would be for the dog. Vouched for another home that is wonderful and the dog is doing well! The other one I helped place is with a very good friend of mine doing Schutzhund! Then the breeder sent one to CO state police and kept a male thay was injured as a Puppy and I have Judge. That's the 6 pack. I should post pics of them all. I geek out on hos siblings and half siblings a lot. Most of his half siblings are in some sort of K9 job. His dad was recently put to sleep at the age of 13. His mom is a well loved pet that is going strong at 10 years.

LoLa ....well...I know of her parents met her dad in person and saw pics of mom. I don't know any littermates though.
