Printing without images
YOU CAN PRINT WITHOUT ALL THE IMAGES doing this:
1) After doing a search for a dog, choose : [PEDIGREE w/o LINKS] and then click the PRINT button.
2) With Chrome Browser, you can download an apps called Print Friendly. Print Friendly is free and available now in the Chrome Web Store. It's been around for a while, but it works like a charm. Firefox users looking for a similar extension can try Print Edit, which gives you a similar interface where you can highlight test, remove images and ads, and pass the final product on to your printer. It is also available for Chrome.

Colour (Registry. MERLE for SZ)
Sex M=Male / F=Female + Health info OFA
Registration Numbers + Stud Book (Month-Year)
Date of Birth Year-Month-Day format
(MERLE): beside the colour, (MERLE) indicate the SZ registered cockers. Not all SZ registered cockers are necessary with Merle markings.|
STUD BOOK: the official record of registered dog breedings.
Stud Book documents the first time any registered dog (male or female) is used to breed a registered litter of purebred dogs.
COI, ALC and COR CALCULATED for 5 Generations. No guarantee (express or implied) is given.
COI is an acronym for "Coefficient of Inbreeding".
It is a mathematically computed percentage that describes the degree to which two animals are inbred, meaning that one or more ancestors appear more than once in the pedigree.
ALC: A related coefficient percentage is known as the Ancestor Loss Coefficient (ALC).
It describes the degree to which recessive traits from ancestor generations are lost. Another way to think of it is as how many unique ancestors an animal has. If there are no duplicate ancestors, then no unique ancestors are "lost", and the ALC = 0%. When there are duplicate ancestors, more and more unique ancestors are "lost", and the ALC percentage goes up. Sometimes in the literature, you may see ALC abbreviated as AVK, which stands for the German word AhnenVerlustKoeffizient.
COR: Another related coefficient percentage is known as the Coefficient of Relationship (COR).
It is only calculated for two animals being considered for a potential breeding, and it gives an indication of "how related" those two animals are. Sometimes in the literature, you may see COR abbreviated as RC.
