  1. Will try my best. As she is b/w she will always test one of these combinations - But the lab can't tell if she carries brindle too (Kbr) or Kky, so that's why they list all the options. Kb is dominant black, Kbr is brindle, and Kky is allowing tanmarkings defined by the A locus to show when they have to copies of the gene. And here is the fun part, her father is known to carrie Kbr because some of her siblings is brindle. So that confused me a bit. But - Her mum is tri, and gave her one copy of Kky we know that! So she would have shown some brindle markings if she carried the brindle gene. And she doesn't. That means she got the dominant black Kb from her father. So she's Kb/Ky = Black and white. The "hidden" things in her colors is, she carries tri, and she has one copy of Kky and tan markings defined on the A locus (at/at) (but no surprise as mum is tri) So she is likely to produce b/w pups and tricolor pups with a male carrying or being tricolor. But she won't pass on any brindle. The E locus is a melanistic mask, which defines she's likely to have a dark face. Haven't really figured it out yet, as her face is not all dark. But we have had debates, as her markings is not well defined in her face and she has like a grey smudgy line between the black and white that looks quite fun. So some thinks those two things might be related. But really have no clue myself Aaaand, this is what all that genetics look like
  2. Thanks, think i might have translated it into something i understand So expecting tri color and B/W puppies, some mottled and not any brindle. As she is exactly what she looks like - B/W, carrying tri
  3. My dogs just got DNA tested and in the test was color testing - And since i breed working dogs and really only know the very basic color genetics that can cause health problems, i have no idea how to translate this. So.. Any color experts here who can translate? I know what colors it looks like my dog has, but what should she look like based on these results? K locus: KB/ky || KB/kbr || kbr/ky|| kbr/kbr Colour Locus A - Agouti: at/at Saddle tan: dup/dup Locus E: Em/E No merle, dillute, brown or otherwise interessesting colors. So... What colors should she have, based on these results? And what to expect when mated to a tricolor mottled male (her mother is mottled too and she has very little ticking on her legs herself)?
  4. The waiting game is over - My dogs test results just came in this morning. Both Clear on EAOD, so thankfully won't have to worry about neither the dogs nor their offspring. Haven't ordered a test for my EOD dog, thought it was waste of money as we know he's deaf But will be interesting to see the carrier/affected rate when more is tested.
  5. Latest news is, that the test should be available... Now! Only confirmed by an E-mail from the lab. So, since nothing is out on the website or really official yet, i'm waiting till it's confirmed to order the test. But sounds like the waiting is almost over. Really do hope so, since i have a mating planned within a month or two, and really would like the test done before
  6. Just read on facebook that they say june now - Surprice But.... We'll see, kinda lost my trust in their ability to stick to their own time scheduel
  7. Think it's really great value for money at genoscoper and really cheap egen compared to so many other Companys. So think a lot will test anyway because so much more is add'ed at the genoscoper test than anywere else. I probably Would have run the test in my breeding dogs anyway now i know how they use the data and how much is tested for. But might take som marketing and telling people exactly what they get from genoscoper - testing 3-4 dogs is after all a bit of money for most people. Otherwise people will just have to wait a bit longer to the article is published and other companys offers the test. Actually making people know there is a dissease making out dogs go deaf still seems like the biggest problem at the moment - until my own dog godt deaf nearly no one in the country knew about EAOD and most still don't. And they need to know to do any test in the first place.
  8. Thanks Eileen. Didn't know genoscoper was so research minded, have used Labogens test before, but makes so good sense the way genoscoper does it.
  9. Thanks so much, hopefully their work pays off mid May
  10. Nope, nothing yet... Let's hope May will be the month our patience is rewarded.
  11. Thanks a lot Eileen! Practicing my patience skills in the meantime
  12. Any news about a release date for the test yet? Waiting (not so patiently) to spend my savings on testing my dogs
  13. As a owner of a EOD dog (4/5 out of 7 siblings in the litter is affected at age 6) - And a breeder too - this news is one of the best news in ages. Would be such a relief to be able to do a test for it in the future before breeding!
