  1. Can't remember how many they killed, it was a one off. My mate had a terrier pup off him and at about 12 months it showed very little interest so Plummer invited him to get the pup going.
  2. No photos, all he really said about it was, that the routine was to sneak up, swing open the doors and rush in! He also said Plummer was like a sgt major. Plummer did catch him a rat by hand, and drop it into a sack, to take home for a pup.
  3. Your half right, there is no way of telling in any generation after a first cross , whether a gene is recessive or absent, unless it shows up in later generations.
  4. It is easy to eliminate an unwanted gene if you know what it is dominant to. All you need to do is test mate each animal to something that is recessive to the gene you want to eliminate, to see if it is carrying the unwanted gene . Not very practical with dogs I must admit and only works for visible traits. ..
  5. No! obviously not! well i don't know what your saying,i said the collie gene is still there but dormant, you where saying it could virtually disappear in one generation.now i don't know what your saying I'll explain in simple terms. All genes are in pairs, each pair made up of one from each parent. there is a pair of genes to control just about every aspect , eye colour , coat type , coat colour etc. some genes are dominant to others . If you take the genes for eye colour in humans for example, the brown gene is dominant to blue, therefore with a blue gene from one parent and brown gene from the other parent, all offspring will have brown eyes. Now these offspring will have one blue gene and one brown. Two parents of this type will produce offspring that can have two brown genes, two blue genes or one of each. Now the ones with the two brown genes have lost the blue gene in one generation. Back to the dogs in question having 75% greyhound genes on both sides, it's easy to see that these genes passed at random to make up pairs can throw pups with very few collie genes. Add to that, that some of the collie genes past may well be recessive genes . Hence some of the pups could be virtually greyhounds.
  6. pure greyhound are you havn a laugh f**k me! can you not f*****g read! no but thanks for the offer..an yes i can read Then you'll see that I never mentioned pure Greyhound.
  7. pure greyhound are you havn a laugh f**k me! can you not f***ing read!
  8. I'll take it from that, that you don't know how genes work then!
  9. Your the one saying I'm incorrect, yet your now asking me questions , explain how genetics work and prove me wrong!
  10. No your incorrect mate, do your homework..............Or better still , explain to me how the genetics work!
