long-coated breeds?

That's a huge suprise. One never would have guessed that, say, Shelties

were

used in breeding those Windsprites.

Shocking! :-)
It's an interesting thing from another point. This is a classic example of where opening a gene pool brought in a negative.

Yes, that's something the proponents of outcrossing ignore or are igorant of - outcrossing doesn't eliminate undesireable genetic material, it merely hides to better spread it around.

Did you see that the gene for ivermectin sensitivity is found inlong-coated whippets and silken windsprites, as well as a collection of herdingbreeds?

Heh. Now THAT doesn't surprise me at all.
then they would have loong snipey noses instead of big square mal heads!

...and is there something wrong with loong snipey noses? Hmm? Hmmm? :-)

Not if you are a collie or a belgian breed. If you are a malemute..

It would, indeed, be a funny look on a Mal, which I realize is much more related to the OP. I just wanted to contribute my little bit to Thread Drift today.

Yeah. According to the story, Lombard registered the dogs that looked like Siberian Huskies and didn't register the ones with the long, pointy noses. I'm away from home at the moment and so don't have access to it, but the entire story appears in the ISHC Siberian Husky anthology.

As retrievers go, FCR's have the snipiest noses, don't they?

Interesting..so this is pretty much accepted as a fact and not an anecdote!! Can't wait to share with all the other "wooly" novices who spent a great deal of time and effort arguing about the dog this weekend.
