Re: Kumho

His kennel name is J&J Moon River, but Ryph knows more about his lineage than I do. :) Also I don't know if Jethro failed his hip scores or not, I think the BVA just wouldn't read them because his microchip # wasn't on the x-rays. Shame too because we know Jethro had some pups with great hips! (Mr. ...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Well put, I very much agree! Same here! :D I'm sorry I missed your post yesterday, let me answer a few questions before work. Or is mtDNA always inherited as an exact copy of the mothers? The y-chromosome would be an exact copy of the father's, too wouldn't it (outside of mutation)? If pups from th...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Nice! So for breeders, pups could be declared "wolf-free" by parentage just like they can be declared "DM negative" by parentage making it unnecessary to test a litters produced by wolf-free dogs. This could really cut down on the ammount of testing necessary to get a clear picture of how widesprea...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Thanks Angie for linking those articles. I think that you're right, either way, if the rest of the country is using it especially in prosecution, we can't just ignore it or dismiss it. I still would love to find out more about the test, but you're right, I don't think whether or not it's valid is go...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

There are several published articles on canine hybrids and DNA analysis of them available. This is very common "every day" stuff in conservation ecology etc. Just a few I have read before: Thanks for your response! I've got to get to work so I won't be able to reply until this evening, but I wanted...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Awesome post and it was wonderful to finally meet you and Lorianne! I do have a question about the above information. Is it possible that fewer genes (as few as 38) *could* be sufficient when searching for genetic contributions from a much less similar organisim? I mean, to tell one white lab mouse...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Thanks for the kind welcome folks. :) Wouldn't reverse engineering entail capturing both behavior and aesthetics? If so, that would mean breeding out 'dog-like' qualities and breeding in 'wolf-like' qualities. Then again, I know next to nothing about breeding or genetics. Just wondering! :) Not nece...

Re: WOLF CONTENT

Hi All. This is my first post here. Since my fiance and me have owned our tamaskan (Kumho, aka J&J Moon River from Jethro and Ruby), she's been the one to keep up with the forums and the online stuff, but since this is up my alley I thought I would chime in. :) Some background: I work for a company ...
