Quarterly Puppy Registrations

Recent Kennel Club statistics show 28 registrations in the first quarter of 2009, and only 17 registrations in the second quarter.  If and when Dr Lohi's research gives us a DNA test for genetic predisposition to glaucoma it will take a lot of the 'risk' out of Dandie breeding - but at this rate, will we still have enough breeding stock to keep the breed viable?

Yesterday I met a lady whose family had owned Dandies for three generations - and about 140 years.  Her grandfather was a founder member of our Club in 1875.  I wonder if there will be any Dandies left for my grandchildren.
