Double Ancestry

It is not uncommon for the same dog to appear a number of times in the same and/or different generations of ancestry – this is called "double ancestry" (for example, Linda's Champion is Troy's great‐great‐grandfather and his great‐great‐great‐grandfather in his sire line), or indeed on both sides of the family tree – called "cross‐double" or "X‐double ancestry" (for example, Sail On II is Troy's great‐grandfather in his dam line and his great‐great‐great‐grandfather in his sire line, and Sand Man is Troy's great‐great‐great‐grandfather three times over – twice in his sire line and once in his dam line).
