The Markovo Period: 1969 - 1975 (Part 3)

I  SUPPOSE GENETIC WASTAGE and attrition are par for the course among purebred dogs, along with the other side of the coin, represented by the over-breeding of inferior stock. The December 1971 N-litter, by the American Bryar-line male MIKIUK TUKTU TORNYAK out of LYL OF SEPSEQUEL, followed a similar pattern. NUTOK OF MARKOVO carried on the line with only a small assist from one sister, NERA (again, a breeding done by me). NUTOK'S's excellent brother, NORKA OF MARKOVO, sold along with half a dozen other Markovo Seppalas to Barbara Bailey (who moved from Winnipeg to Quebec and immediately sold half of them), unfortunately sired no pure Seppalas.

THE N-LITTER, the H-litter, LYL OF SEPSEQUEL and SHANGO OF SEPPALA produced several litters over the period 1973 through early 1975. Some of the progeny are familiar names today, many others found only oblivion.
