AKC Registration Question
I finally received Eli's AKC registration forms from the breeder. I have a question that I can't quite figure out. Eli was born June 2010. His Dam appears on the form with a registeration date of 07-11 date and his Sire with a 04-11 date. According to what I've read, these dates mean:
"This is the month and year of the issue of the Stud Book Register in which the particulars of the dog's first breeding experience are recorded. It should not be confused with the dog's date of birth. The Stud Book Register, published monthly, contains the pedigree (sire and dam) of a dog that has been used at stud or a bitch that has whelped a litter for the first time. The Register also contains the names of the owners of all dogs and bitches published as well as the names of the breeders. In addition, registration numbers, dates of whelping, and colors are listed."
Can someone explain how Eli can be born on in 2010 but his Sire and Dam are registered as first whelping a litter in 2011? I'm pretty confused so if anyone could clarify I would appreciate it.
