    So many paps! I want to lay on the floor and let them run all over me.

    Bandit looks very similar to his brother but that is where it ends. Total different personalities.

    Keira and Ripley's sire and dam are both deceased now, so I don't get to see them of course (although I used to see their dam, Shelby, all the time). I do see most of their siblings and other relatives (half siblings, aunts, uncles) regularly though and it's fun to compare.

    Dance's sire lives in the Netherlands now and her dam went to a new home never to be heard from again. I don't see any of her siblings either. I wish I could. I did get to spend some time with one of her sisters a few years ago, but not since.

    I wish I could spend time with Journey's relatives. Based on what I got to know of both of her parents last year when I spent time with them, she seems a very nice blend of both temperament and personality wise. Appearance wise she reminds me a lot of one of her grand dams and she resembles her sire a lot as well. Hearing what I've heard of her siblings, there seem to be a lot of similarities between all of them too temperamentally (and one sister really reminds me a lot appearance wise of Journey too - just a different colour) and I'd love to spend time with every one of them one day if possible. I love doggy family reunions.

    Bear is like his mother, very laid back and easy to work with. But he looks like his father, same tri patch on his eye ... Only on opposite eyes :)

    I think Elsie looks more mature.

    My mums Koolie, Poppy is full sister to Traveler from another litter. Temperament wise they sound similar. But looks wise, I barely see it.

    For a start - she's tiny. Would be lucky to hit 18" at the shoulder.


    Was looking for a full body pic but I don't have one on this computer.

    Build-wise, I think Hudson favors his dad. Leaner, lighter

    Mira has a lot of traits from both of her parents, both physical and mental.

    These first photos were not taken by me, but have been publicly posted in other forums so I think sharing is okay.

    I won't add Mira pics but anyone who has seen her pics through the years is going to see a lot of common themes ;)
