    I don't know anything about any of either of my dogs relatives. =P

    And I don't really care to, either. I used to kind of keep in touch with Juno's breeder, but I stopped that a while ago. It might just make me sad if their littermates turned out to be more awesome than my dogs. :p

    I suppose it would be nice to know the health of Lucy's littermates. She's from a BYB and is fine, but any heads up of potential problems would be nice.

    I sooo wish I knew if there were other Wilson's out there--can you imagine?
    I did know of Baxter's brother--but lost track.

    Well Kim's siblings all died in the weeks before the local folks called the rescue people to tell them a litter of puppies had been dumped...she was the only one who made it out alive. The rest disappeared one by one, presumably due to predators.

    I have no way of knowing if Webster even had siblings or where he's originally from since he was a year old when I met him.

    Mira on the other hand...I am lucky enough to see updates/photos of her littermates...occasionally for some, pretty regularly for others. She has one (not two but the second are only a few weeks old) litter of half-siblings as well that I have fun keeping up on as their owners post updates about their lives :). As well as keeping up with her parents, grandparents, uncle, etc. :)

    I wish I had contact with them.

    By chance Duke's littermate came to my daycare when I worked there.

    They looked nothing alike.

    It'd be cool to see the rest of his fam. I'm really curious to see what his parents are like. His previous owner said his dad was very large and stocky. Which is the opposite of what he is.

    Stalk 'em all the time. Well, Keeva's littermates. Macky was probably born under somebody's porch, LOL. But yeah, I'm FB friends with Keeva's breeder, and two of the owners of her brothers. Another one of her brother's owners I'm not FB friends with but I see updates through her breeder.

    I've seen some of my Chows' half siblings showing. I know some of their full siblings show, but I don't think they're local.

    Since I'm friends with Auggie's breeder, I know tons. One of my agility friends has a half-bro. I know two other half-bros. A Pepper/Payton uncle I think he is. Sooooo many. And of course the relatives to Payton on that side, I know several of them, including his grandma. (His great granny is Auggie's granny of course.)

    I get e-mails from Payton's breeder with updates (and sometimes pics) of his sister that she still has. His brother lives in California now and the other sister is a pet in the same town breeder lives in IIRC. And of course Pepper and her sister (with Auggie's breeder) are half-siblings. =P

    It would be a small nightmare trying to track down half-siblings on Payton's dad's side though. I think he's been stud dog for a fair chunk of litters at this point. Another agility person I know told me she was considering using the same dog as a stud for one of her litters, which made me feel pretty good. I did see a few dogs pop up online while researching that line of the family but I don't know any of them and have certainly never met them. I did see ONE dog on his dad's side of the family has some performance titles... but otherwise, well, I think I just don't run in the same circles as most of the folks who would have Payton relatives. It's bad enough that his breeder sends me photos of his sister all pretty and fluffed out and I send back photos of Payton in the leaves with grass sticking out of his mouth and dirt all the way up to his elbows... XD

    I know one of Hobies littermates and knew his "breeder". The littermate was a brother and he recently died at 12 years.

    I knew a lot of Reds relatives and her littermates...they were all put to sleep due to aggression issues. I kept on loose contact with her breeder.

    I am in close contact with Judges breeder and kknow many half siblings and all of his littermates. I see many of them on a regular basis. I helped place 3 littermates..vouched for one home that turned out not so good as I thought it would be for the dog. Vouched for another home that is wonderful and the dog is doing well! The other one I helped place is with a very good friend of mine doing Schutzhund! Then the breeder sent one to CO state police and kept a male thay was injured as a Puppy and I have Judge. That's the 6 pack. I should post pics of them all. I geek out on hos siblings and half siblings a lot. Most of his half siblings are in some sort of K9 job. His dad was recently put to sleep at the age of 13. His mom is a well loved pet that is going strong at 10 years.

    LoLa ....well...I know of her parents met her dad in person and saw pics of mom. I don't know any littermates though.

    Umm... Aeri's (and other mals on here!) breeder added me on Facebook a few days after I met stardogs and Aeri. So I see/hear about Chazzer's dogs breeders? LOL cause that doesn't sound creepy at all...

    ETA: I don't actually know for sure it's Aeri's breeder, tbh. I just know the first name of her breeder, and this person has mal pictures... so I'm assuming it is, or else I'm REALLY confused as to why I was added :lol-sign:

    Eve's breeder has May and Moss, two of Eve's littermates. I also occasionally keep in touch with the gal who owns Sky, her other littermate. Sky is also a service dog. :)

    Yup quite often. I see regular pictures of some of Ivans littermates, 1/2 siblings and other family members. Ivans breeder set up a FB group for all of her puppy people. So not only do I get to see pictures of the "family" but I get updates on them as well.

    I consider Bukra's breeder to be family! So I get to see his aunts and cousins a lot. I am friends with three people who own full siblings of his (all sisters), and know several half siblings as well. There is also another breeder who is in our circle who has relatives of his. We're just one big happy family! LOL

    I don't know anyone with relatives of Jolene. Her breeder owns her sire and dam, but I don't know anyone with littermates.

    I don't know anyone with relatives of Ruger. I did meet a littermate to Bindah once at the feed store. Their sire and dam are both dead.

    I am friends with Peshamba's breeder, who has her sire and brother, and also friends with the couple who has the 3rd puppy from her litter (another bitch). Aside from her dam, those are the only dogs she is related to in the states (her sire and dam were imported).

    I've got a guy on my Facebook who has one of Zealand's siblings, and I used to have his breeder on there. I have a gal on there who has a bitch from the first breeding of Ze's sire and dam, and a puppy out of one of those dogs from the first breeding.

    Bear was listed as being between 4-10 when I brought him home :doh:
    So no siblings to speak of. Pig came to the shelter with a sister. I've been tempted to call her owners, but that would probably get me fired. So I've settled for occasionally checking the computer to make sure she hasn't been returned. She hasn't. I would love to see how she turned out though. It would be interesting to see if she's part crack monkey as well.

    Meg was about a year/year and a half when she was transferred from the south, so obviously no known littermates. She did give birth not long before I got her, and I would *love* to see her babies. Wee little baby Meggles!

    Gusto was part of a litter of four (well, at least four were still alive when they were rescued), and since I know the person who rescued them, I get updates occasionally. One other went to an agility home in the state, and I'm friends with them on Facebook, so I get to see pictures and such :D The other two are in pet homes and send notes once in a while to the rescuer.

    I am a huge internet dog nerd and creeper. I have Pan's siblings owners on FB, as well as owners from past litters, Mal owners in general, etc. From Pan's litter, it's pretty much only me and Stardogs who regularly post fun dog stuff though.

    I have zero idea where Aija's ended up. I wish I did though.

    I know of..two of Nellie's littermates floating around my area, and then one that is her sister but from a separate litter.
