[RC] Puppies - Ridecamp Guest

I take exception to the remark that one should avoid breeders who have both 
parents on the grounds.  I bred and showed Salukis for better than 25 years and 
had both parents on the grounds.  The bitches were champions, the stud was 
American and Canadian champion and National Top Ten. I once or twice used his 
full brother, major pointed but injured before he could be finished, the only 
reason he wasn't a champion as well.  The deciding factor is the quality and 
disposition of the dogs and the way they are raised, not whether the stud dog 
is also on premises.  Serious breeders/showers like me, who make a commitment 
to the history and quality of the breed, will have breeding stock of both 
sexes. Would you prefer a pet bitch owner who uses the neighbor's dog as a stud 
because he's a male of the same breed, irregardless of pedigree, conformation 
or quality?
