Off topic, Rachael- we have wildblue satellite. I has done us good. We dont have the fastest connection and we pay around $60 a month. It wasnt terribly expensive to get the dish installed. We got a special, maybe you can too. It has only gone down on me once for a lengthy time. I am perfectly happy with it, especially compared to next to nothing in other options.

Hey, y'all remember that, just like breeders aren't all the same, pet homes aren't all the same. I'd wager that Cannon gets as much mental and physical challenge as many working dogs, and I make darned sure his prey drive gets exercised. If I don't, then he gets bored, and we all know what happens when a Lacy gets bored. Not pretty! To me, if a dog isn't going to be bred, the important thing is that it gets all the things it needs. That can be working, or it can be in a pet home that provides similar challenges. And a pet owner is far less likely to violate a contract and breed a dog. As has been said, the important thing is knowing your buyer, what they will do with the dog, and of course making sure the buyer understands all aspects of the breed.

You know I am in the mortgage industry and the is a saying that realtors and lenders say. Maybe true in other areas as well but here it goes....
Buyers are liars!
Not all of them will lie, but some are going to tell you what you want to hear no matter how good of questions you ask. Unless you have been doing this for years you will not know what key words to pick up on. We want to believe there is good in all. So if you are uncomfortable with selling your pups out of this litter without a contract to have them fixed at a specific age then don't. We have some people on this bored who have a tremendous amount of experience and they would know when to pick up on the key words and know the person on the other end is not telling the truth. I say do what makes you comfortable. If you don't feel these puppies should be breed you know best about your dogs. If they meet the standards as best as you can tell right now and you think they will when they are 18 months ol then stipulate that in a contract, if they don't meet at said date then they need to be fixed with out breeding. The only thing you can do is pray they honor your wishes, because even if they do breed you may never know. All the papers mean is they have the lineage and they can be registered with said registry.

Sorry I am off my soap box, I just feel I got lied to on several aspects of the last litter I had and no matter how many questions I asked before breeding and when selling the puppies I think people tell you what you want to hear so they can get what they want.

I.M.O. if the pups donot meet breed standard then cull them or spay or neuter them. If more people had done this in the past we would not have as much of a problem as we have today with dogs that donot meet breed standards and are still Reg. J.M.O.

Rach I did get to see the vid of the pups..and I have to say WOOT WOOT!!

Send them to working homes and let them work their asses off..THAT is really more important than anything else that could be said which goes hand in hand with Know Your Buyer ;)

As breeders we all want to uphold and meet standards and strive to better the breed all around. One of the weakest areas in that equation is the work ethic..Lacy Dogs became pets and started loosing that drive, they also lost their reputation as a hard working ranch dog along the way.
ANY Lacy Dog working hard improves that reputation...the aesthetic things, those get worked out with each breeding journey, and are far easier to correct than the prey drive or lack there of.

It is ironic that in the beginning there were concerns about Levi being to big to breed..and in the end the size is right on the pups (thus far) but the colors were screwy..just goes to show there is no EXACT science and that ANYTHING can happen when we manipulate Mother Nature (which is basically what domesticating & then breeding dogs is) And it happens to ALL of us ;)

Keep me posted on where your little ones go and how they are doing!! Oh and that Strike dog of yours in your back yard that use to be mine..did some research on lines and such..I bet him & Chula would make badass babies.. :ymdaydream: we will talk about that later though.. :))

Well, I am happy with the pups for now. The size seems right, the white on the cream pups totally went away, and I was able to place the white-faced red male and blue female in working homes. So far I've only seen one pup from the litter that doesn't meet my expectations with drive. This little red female that I have is so unattentive and annoying... She's sweet, but's she is always that last one to start baying, never follows blood, and is quick to loose attention when she finally does start working. She never shuts up when she sees cattle, though. lol. I think she'll make a good pet, but she's definately a cull. The cream female that I have, though, is really awesome! She's the one who almost always gets the others started and is super gritty. I'd keep her, but I really don't want anymore females to deal with in my curret situation... The two males I'm keeping hate pigs, too. ;) I have a funny video of us playing piggy-pinata with a dead pig, but this computer won't load it. I can tell that Diesel is going to be an exact replica of Levi (minus a few inches) and Midas is going to be a little more small and wiry-built and looking like Chula. They both think they're bulldogs on these little pigs. Anyways, just wanted to update. I can't wait to get see these pups really get working when they grow up! :-BD

Hehe, I'll keep it a secret. ;) Here's my most recent pictures of her:

Here's the videos of us playing with that dead piggy:

We tied him to a tree at the end of a blood trail / drag and they bayed at the end. Then we grabbed the piggy on the rope and took off with it and tied him to another tree where they bayed and tried to catch. I was happy with all of them except the red female... You can see her in one video zipping around in the background... They hate pigs! Needless to say, we need to get a little bigger one. They need to learn some respect.
