(Leander-Colonia & Leo Harlequin, unregistered x Elvira-Colonia, unregistered)
Born October 22, 1903.
Owner: Heinrich Esser, Cologne in the Rhineland.
Originally, Ador’s pedigree was submitted (by Herr Esser) with just Leander as the sire. Leander-Colonia x Elvira-Colonia was a father/daughter breeding. However it was “corrected” (with documentation and sworn affirmations) by the DDC on August 13, 1910 at Cassel to add Leo as a sire.
At that time, genetics was thought to be inherited solely through the blood, and it is speculated that they thought Ador could carry the “blended blood” of both sires. However, the DDC also also said that because the old pedigree for Ador had gone out into the world through himself and his thousandfold children and grandchildren – that changing it was not practicable. Could this have meant that Ador’s actual sire was Leo and instead of changing the established pedigree, they just added Leo’s name? At this point, everything is speculation.
