Was Lana Lou Lane of Circle L Kennels the originator of the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog?
No, though she was the first Secretary of the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog Association (ABBA) the founding organization which duly named the breed in 1979. For so long, she proclaimed that she was the originator of the breed to the general public through her Dog World & Dog Fancy ads whilst the truth was hidden amongst a handful of ranchers/breeders who cared more about their livestock than puppy milling some new ‘Exotic’ rare breed! Thus, the real history of the breed was never told because as the so-called ‘originator’ she couldn’t have purchased dogs from someone else (i.e. William Chester, Kathy Waldron & Kenny Houston to name a few)!
