No Jinx!

Postby Calypso » Fri May 10, 2013 12:19 pm

Ok, I did it. I told the breeder that I definitely want a puppy. And then I bought a tiny little puppy toy when I was at Marshall's. I was the same way with my pregnancies. Once it was confirmed, I couldn't resist just buying one itty bitty baby thing, even though things were only 90% certain.

squeeee!

squeeeee! again!

End of June. So there should be a lot of time for fun socialization trips with the kids and just with the puppy and I together.

I remember now! Fun all summer whereas the SF puppy would have been later in the year. I finally looked up the description of the DSFDs and they do sound like a really nice all around dogs. I hope she'll turn out to be everything you want in your next dog. :)

They are adorable. I thought the dog would be larger - how much will she weigh full grown.

Congrats!

He'll be 15-20 lbs full sized. That's something that appealed to me. A small, short haired non-terrier dog. Not that there is anything wrong with terriers, but I'm not the best match to own one.

Isn't there a lot of terrier in the breed? They sure look like terriers.

I suspect that there is some terrier, some herding dog, some pinscher. It is classified as a pinscher and they do go to ground, but they don't get fixated to the extent that terriers generally do. And they have intelligence like a terrier, but more of a willingness to work with a human, rather than away from them and solving their own problems. So I'll be trading barkiness for hunting small animals and digging, but Paul is ok with that. Otherwise they seem to be quite like collies in versatility and general temperament. I've been talking to a lot of people who have had aussies, smooth collies, and/or border collies who have either completely defected to the Farmdog side or swear that they need both breeds in their life to have balance.

Talking to people who have siblings of Ingi's mom or puppies from Ingi's dad, the dogs generally have the temperament to be confident going about life and to do things like flyball or agility. There is a Farmdog in the group who logged 240 hours reading with children as a therapy dog, although he isn't directly related to Ingi. And that makes sense based on a Swedish trainer who was reading a post on another group who said that in Scandinavia, Farmdogs are quite often suggested as an excellent family dog, probably like Beagles or Golden retrievers here. Not perfect for everyone, but tends to be right enough for families.

The farm Dogs remind me a lot of a similar breed in Germany, the Kromfohrländer.

oooh congrats! I had looked up the breed when you mentioned it a while ago, but for some reason I was picturing something that looked more like an english shepherd. Then I clicked and I saw something that looked more like a terrier and got totally confused. haha
now, time for travel plans...

Aren't they cute? A little bigger than the DSFD, but the idea behind the breed was much the same. Kromfohrländer are an excellent example for a breed developed correctly, the foundation began only as recently as 1955. Lots of careful work, no quick-scheme "designer" crosses like we mostly see today.

I don't understand why things like this are considered "serious faults" (from the Krom page)
"SERIOUS FAULTS: Brown markings too pale. Black patches without brown undercoat. Absence of markings on back. Uneven markings on head giving wrong expression. Light eyes."

Emily, those are "cosmetic" things that are undesirable. The founder of the breed had a clear vision what the dogs should look like. Faults or serious faults will not disqualify a dog from the conformation ring, but everything else being equal, a dog with darker brown markings, proper patches, and desired markings would be placed above one that has one or more of these faults. Disqualifying faults will eliminate a dog from being shown, and thus from offspring being registerable. (ETA: in countries where a formal conformation score like "excellent", "very good", or at least "good" must be earned before the dog can even be bred.)

One additional disqualifying fault in the German standard is physical abnormalities and shy/aggressive behavior. This is common in German standards though, for many breeds. And I wish it was something taken more seriously here in the US.
