History of Merri Lon The Blue Tail Fly ROM

The only breeding that will reliably produce more than 50% merles is tricolor to homozygous merle, the latter being the often blind, deaf, and/or sterile whites sometimes produced by merle-to-merle breedings. The rare healthy homozygous merles are thus potentially useful for producing merles, though the majority are destroyed at birth. Merri Lon the Blue Tail Fly ROM was one of the first, if not the first, homozygous merles advertised at stud nationally, and certainly the first to sire 10 Champions.

"Fly" was bred by the Petersons (Merri Lon) from Ch Freedobev Apache Blue ex their Ch Merri Lon Night Shadows. He was whelped April 29, 1970, and while he could not be shown, he was often on display at specialty show sites. He sired 10 Champions. He is Line CHE Part IIb and Family 12 Part II.
