If you are able to, ask Elizabeth to print you off the AKC awards record for Panda's dam and sire, as well as any other family possible. Sheila got me the details of every show Nino's dam, sire, granddam, half-sister, and aunt have been in, including the judges and how they placed, as a "Christmas gift". Very interesting stuff.
Panda's Dam never showed, and while her farther-back family tree is mostly champions, they aren't shown more than that. Which is what MANY breeders do.. They finish them, but if you won't put your dog out with a handler, which I support, specializing them really isn't possible when you are also breeding puppies at home.
Panda's sire's sire is Kenny, GCH CH Yup's Malibu Dream, 2013 Best Havanese Dog. (Top Havanese that year was a bitch, so he was #2 in the breed) In 5 generations back, Panda only has 5 dogs who were not champions on the top. On the bottom, her Dam's dam's line is all champions. He dam's sire's line is imported Pillowtalk dogs. He was finished after she was imported, but the dogs further back on the top don't show up on AKC papers or searches because any wins they had would have been in FCI, not AKC. (and heaven forbid AKC should report titles from any other organization!
I really don't have the band width to go through it all dog by dog or show by show. Elizabeth knows ALL the judges, and will tell me if one is a bad fit for Panda. (I'm in charge with planning performance stuff, she's in charge of the conformation end) Generally, if they like Cab, they like her. Unfortunately, it means she's usually against her dad (who has an adult coat) in the breed ring.
The funny thing is that there is a lot of Panda's breeding that I wouldn't choose if I were looking for my "dream pedigree". But she is one of those individuals who is DEFINITELY an improvement on her dam. In some ways I like her better than her sire, in other ways he's better. And she will NEVER be campaigned the way he has, so she will never have the conformation career he has had, even were she capable of it. (so we'll never know on that front
BTW, it feels like other "rites of passage" for my girl, she has passed her cardiac, Cerf and patella tests! Hips she's too young for, and we'll do thyroid when she has her annual stick for titers. I don't KNOW that we will ever breed her, (and that decision is solely mine) but I promised Elizabeth that we'd do all her testing as if that was the intention.
