How did you just find out he's a Nick son?
Good luck in the ring!
Well last year I had plans to breed breed my Ch. Cha Cha to my Ch. Stunner. But an oops happened while I was away and Strike bred her instead. That story is on this list someplace. Anyways, Cha is red Strike is black and we 'should" have had red and black puppies. Instead we had an all black BEAUTIFUL litter. Cant wait for some of those kids to hit the ring this year.
I got to talking to his breeder whom I TOTALLY ADORE
about the babies when they were born and long story short Strike was DNA tested and ended up being a black 2 ( carries dilution) not a black 3 ( does not carry dilution).
With that info it was questioned who his sire was as it was said that Lance Ch. Cambria's Xcalibar ( who is was thought to be the sire of the litter Strike is from) did not carry dilution. But..........Nick Ch. Cambria's Out for Justice did.
So then DNA testing was started on Strike and his siblings. Thus far results on the tested dogs from the litter are they are all Nick kids. Not Lance.
Regardless Strike and his litter mates are STUNNING!! He has a finished owner handled sister, his other sister has a 5 point major and a few singles, a brother was also pointed and another sister is pointed. Not to shabby for 1 litter so far and they will be showing this year still. I see other champions from this litter is the future.
I love my goofy, happy, dorky, slap you with his paw every chance he gets doodle bug with all my heart. I don't care who is sire is (even though Nick is quite lovely
Strike is still Strike in the end and I would not change him for all the tea in China.
