We stuck faithfully to the dog breeding rules and traditions. We listened carefully to those who had the experience and the knowledge. We studied the international genealogy charts (pedigrees). We visited morphology exhibitions and breeding kennels. We decided upon specific types of Labradors and Goldens and got hold of suitable specimens so as to obtain the best possible results.
And this was the very height of stress but also that of expectation, of doubt, as well as the culmination of hope.
