Where puppies fall from Heaven and land in Iowa

"Thank you for taking a peek at my beautiful females.  We love them all dearly and give them a  wonderful life here at Kimberlee's Kennels.  They are fed high quality dog food, groomed regularly and whelp inside my home where I always tend to their every need."

Meet my four standard poodles:

1.) "Stella's Flower."

AKC registered standard poodle.

 Flower is as gentle and loving as a lamb.   She is a sweet, precious girl.   Love, love, love her temperament. She will be bred by Kerchenko for standard English-goldendoodles.  She can be a bit of a guardian over me at times and she does believe she is my only girl.   I do have a special spot in my heart for her.  She quickly made me fall in love with the standard poodle.  Sweetness in the eyes, polite and loving makes her a top runner.  She stands 25 1/2 inches to the withers and is OFA good in both hips and elbows.

AKC Registered Bernese Mountain Dog

2.) "Faith"

AKC Registered Bernese Mountain Dog 

 Faith is a little more reserved than her sister, Hope, but loves affection once held.  She tends to give hugs back with her whole body and leans into you and moans just a bit to absorb all you have to give.    She is my most shy dog, but she is an excellent mother.  She is one of the best out of all my berner females!  She can be protective, but she takes care of her babies that is for sure!   You may need to keep your distance due to her protective nature, but that is OK, it means she is a good mother.

3.) "Hope"

AKC Registered Bernese Mountain Dog 

  This silly girl loves people and believes she is part human.  She is very loyal and crazy sweet.   Always with a smile on her face.  She is a sure winner that brings delight to all that she meets.   She is a good mother.  In her spare time, she likes to hunt baby rabbits in the ditch and she loves to grab her sister, Faith, and head off to the creek.   She gets along well with other dogs, no aggression or timidity.  Her pups are a good pick.  She stands very nicely for artificial insemination  and is currently the only berner that produces the miniature F1 bernedoodles. However, she does have an umbilical hernia and that could pass down to her offspring.  To me, that is a very minor defect and not a big deal. It's basically an "outy" belly-button.

Interpreting Results:  

If a dog passes hips and fails elbows, the dog can still be bred because there is not enough research that supports that elbow dysplasia is genetic, it could be from accident or injury in the dog's life.   If a dog fails hips, the dog should not be bred, but should be retired and spayed or nuetered.  

  • Genetic Panel:  For each test, you have the possibility of receiving the following results: normal, carrier, or at-risk (affected).  Normal means that your dog has two copies of the "wildtype" or normal DNA sequence for the gene being tested.  Carrier means that your dog carries one copy of the "wildtype" sequence (normal) and one copy of the mutation.  For most diseases, your dog will not be affected with the disease, but simply a carrier.  Carriers can pass this mutated copy of the gene to half of their offspring and depending on the genetics of their mate, may produce at-risk or affected puppies.  If you breed a dog that is a carrier, you simply do not give out breeding rights on the offspring as you can't ensure the breeder won't breed with a carrier or an affected dog.  Most of my customers are looking for a pet and are not concerned if the dog is just a carrier, because they are not at risk and they are not planning on breeding.  An at-risk result means that your dog has two copies of the mutation and is at-risk for developing the disease.  In this case, these dogs carry two copies of the mutation so that all offspring will inherit at least one copy of the mutation and depending on its mate, is at high-risk of producing affected puppies.  IF an at-risk dog is bred to an ALL-CLEAR mate, pups will be carriers and not affected.  IF you see that one of my dames or studs is at-risk, I will only breed them to all-clear mates.   The end result will produce carriers, with no risk to develop the disease.
