I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday who is a Spaniel trialler. I asked him a question and I will pose the same one here as I think it is relevent.
If you cross a Jack Russell Terrier to a Patterdale Terrier do you still end up with a terrier?
If you cross a springer spaniel to a cocker spaniel do you still end up with a spaniel?
If you cross a Hungarian Vizsla to a GWP do you still end up with a HPR dog?
Yes technically I know its 3 questions but it should create an interesting debate
