Default Okay, I found my puppy (for real this time!)

I contacted the breeder I got Sophie from, because as most of you know, the breeder I was dealing with turned out to be very weird. I am glad I didn't drive the 4 hours to meet her. Anyway, Sophie's breeder is very nice, and we have been in contact ever since I got her. The reason I was looking for another breeder is that her dogs are only CKC, and I was looking for AKC. But after all the looney breeders I have been meeting lately, I just don't care so much about papers anymore, lol! When it comes down to it, I would much rather buy from someone I trust than from someone who has AKC dogs. Anyway, she has a litter due next week, and 3 more due next month. One of the pregnant dogs is Sophie's mother, so I could get her a "Real" sister! Well, I told her I was looking for a small female that does not look like Sophie, and I basically have my choice of any puppies I want (aside from the ones she keeps). I am so excited for them to be born!!!

Whats the differnce between AKC & CKC ?

Do you know if the AKC 'reconizes' the CKC?

AKC does not recognize CKC. CKC is just a cheaper registry and does not do DNA testing on the dogs so you never know for sure if the parents are who the breeder says they are.

I think you made the right choice.
There's nothing wrong with CKC if you only want a pet quality pup. You can still get a pedigree from them. I got the 5 generation pedigree for Koke.

Girls, don forget that in Canada...CKC also stands for CANADIAN KENNEL CLUB..the equivalent of the AKC..and not the Continental one.

I agree papers aren't everything. Boss is able to AKC registered and Lina can be CKC but neither one are and I don't plan on doing it.

I can't wait to see pics of the pups I hope you find one you can't live without. I'm glad I've never had to go and see a litter of pups lol. I'd never make it out of the house without all of them lol
