Obviously someone in the legislature has way to much time on his hands. Or maybe he thinks that law enforcement in the state is so underworked that they need a new project. A project which would involve reading thousands of dog pedigrees.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, take a look at HB2986.
Prohibits inbreeding of dogs by breeder. Makes first violation
subject to maximum fine of $360. Makes second or subsequent
violation subject to maximum fine of $720.
Requires breeder to keep records showing parentage and
grandparentage of dogs and puppies. Makes violation subject to
maximum fine of $720.
We all keep pedigrees on our dogs. Of course we do. But not because the state police are going to come check and make sure we do. Give me a break!
While I’ve only done one half-brother, half-sister cross breeding a common grandparent is quite frequent. Eek: doggy incest!!
