Bernese Mountain Dog Example & Requirements

Below is a screenshot of the OFA database listing for one of my Bernese Mountain Dogs who has a CHIC number.  You can click on the photo to enlarge for detail.  You will note that Henley's dam also has her CHIC number.  Her sire Kuza has all the required tests to get his CHIC number - but his VetGen report for von Willebrands Disease was never submitted to OFA (it can be seen in Berner-Garde, he is Clear).  You can visit the actual link here:
