Not none? - Page 1

When I put in site it says father not know but when I do a pedigree search it comes up with pedigree how do I correct?

Maddmacc,  Is this the dog you are trying to add the sire to?  Who is his sire?

Maddmacc was probably entering the dog's name with spelling mistakes.

Honestly, how can someone be looking at a page which says "Not known" and still render it as 'not none ?' (topic title) and 'not know' (OP text) ???

Before anyone jumps on me, I doubt this is dyslexia ! Every dyslexic person I ever knew always goes to great lengths to NOT do things like this post.

Hund maybe they don't have a native grasp of the language, maybe they are trying to learn/speak English.

Waiting to hear back from the member to help them. I do not believe it is a language problem as many times duplicates are created
by a dog's name not showing up that is spelled correctly. The system does not always recognize the name for some reason when you type it into
forum to enter sire of dam. At least this member checked before entering a duplicate.

Yeah, I guess. Just that this sort of mistake seems SO unnecessary. I have sometimes tried to write things in languages other than my native English; I do not do this sort of thing, in particular, though: if I have words in front of me to copy, I COPY them !

Suppose I got out of bed with my impatient head on, this morning ...

Hund I am around many who speak like this, they try so hard to fit in and really try to use the English language, there are some who won't try because they feel shame when critiqued.

Not discussing 'speaking', though, are we ? Where it's entirely excusable.  We are talking about writing in a foreign language, you know:  where you have some time to think, and copy, and edit ...


Nobody really notices (or shouldn't, much) if you SAY 'know' rather than 'no', or 'none' rather than 'known' when you speak to them in an accent. But we do not write in foreign accents - I can excuse all sorts of spelling and grammatical errors in posts when the author is going 'stream of consciousness' and developing their argument on something. There they have no 'right' version to refer to. But this example ??? Not trying real hard, in my opinion.  (But, yes, it is JMHO ....)

How about we get back to the original subject of this post. I deleted the dog because there was no sire, but Heritage has reinstated the dog along with the sire,and so as far as I am concerned, this subject is closed.
