THE NAME OF THE GAME IS GENETICS

by Megan Capon



INFORMAL RESEARCH PROJECT
Since there is no available research or statistics on the Catahoula breed,
we don't know with certainty if the merle gene is expressed the same
way in Catahoulas as in other breeds.
Would everyone who breeds double or partial blue/glass eyed merle Catahoulas
to double or partial blue/glass eyed merle Catahoulas be willing to participate
in recording information on the results of these breedings?
(Results = #solid pups, #merles, #excessive whites)
The object in gathering information would be to make these statistics available
to the veterinary community and breeders for the benefit of all.
A running count would be posted here in the EZINE after
10 or more litters were recorded.
No names or addresses to be published.
