but the general concensus seems to be that anyone who would breed or support someone who bred a dilute is irresponsible.
Where did someone say that?
I cant say much on "other bitches" but there are lot of documented titles on BOTH SIDES of my dogs ancestry. And just because a dog wasnt tested doesnt mean they carry anything. All of my dogs have checked out healthy, maybe i got lucky. But none the less, i have healthy dogs with good temperaments, that show potential for confirmatiion and IPO (not tthe same dog) but but the third one could possibly title in both venues, we'll see...
Those titles should be on the dogs you are breeding, not just in the pedigree.
And it's conformation. If you really think your dogs have show potential it seems like you could at least spell that word correctly.
