First, forgive me I am posting this in the wrong forum. Both Smili's mommy and daddy are CKC registered. The mommy is also ACK Registered. The daddy never got around to registering with the AKC.\n \nI have read much of the negative things that are said about the CKC. I am not planning on breeding either (They will be spayed at 4 months).\n \nThey are indeed purebred Bassets with pure Basset attitude, just not sure if there is any advantage to register other than to make my wallet a little lighter.
