Re: Online Show Results - October 2013

Well...yes and no, I figured (just like Paka, Fable, and Kalla) they are technically Tamaskans so I've left them. Aydin wishes to still be in look-alike according to Rahne so I've left him. By that logic, any new Blustag/Blufawn puppy can also "compete" against registered (TDR) Tamaskans... :? IMHO...
