Wire N News Staff

,

AKC has a new Chairman, Jim Smith. I hate to get my hopes up too high, but this guy sounds good . He is holding several open meetings at dog shows around the country, and you won't believe this part, .. , . i·.·--.:::'::::!!!:!!!!!:!!::;;::;::::,::!:iiijEI.ll •••• :lilll:llllil:::l·.ilil:.·i:· ................. he is actually inviting us, the people who show, and breed dogs to attend and give him our opinion of ................................. ... .......... ................................. ... ............. .. ......... -----things. I hope to attend one of these meetings and I ...... ----... -..••............................. --.-. -. .. will let you know how it goes. The second item Mr. Smith is advocating is the .,"""."""""""""', !ii:!.:.:~:',·i::·!::::'.:' .. ,--"--"""",." •• ',.'.', 1,,',',',',',','·',-",',','" .','.' ' ,,' ' ' practice of show judges giving an oral critique of their placements. Right then and there, in the ring. Apparently the AKC has had a policy that pennits independent specialty judges to do just this. But few clubs have taken advantage of it. In order for a club to provide tlns service to it's exhibitors, they must publish it in their prenrium list. That's it, that's all. Oh yea, one other thing, they must find a judge willing to do it. I personally would love to see tIllSmade mandatory at AKC dog shows, just as it is in many other countries. As an exhibitor, just think of the knowledge you could gain by listelllng to a critique. For the "old hands" they would learn what is important to a particular judge, for thesomeone new to a breed they could learn what judges in general are looking for. For all of us, we would be forced to open our eyes and look at our dogs in realistic temlS, and accept their faults and as well as their good points. Another advantage would be that judges would actually have to read the standards for the breeds they are judging and would have to speak knowledgeably regarding their placements. What a novel idea! And just think, we could take this even further. How about field judges critiquing their placements. The show people are not the only ones who walk away from a competition scratching their heads, wondering what they missed. Many judges at both hunting tests and field trials forget to read the rule book as well.An explanation of their placements would take some of tIle mystery off of why so and so got first and you got a third. Well, there's my opinion. If you agree and you belong to an All Breed Oub, the door has been opened. Bring it up at a meeting see what happens. Clubs giving field trials and hunting tests can ask tIleir judges to give their comments before or after the ribbons have been handed out. We may end up with some hurt feelings, but we will all know where we stand and why. It's almost time to get on tIle plane, get in the van, hook up the horse trailer and head to California. On October 17th, Yuba City, California will become the German Wirehaired Pointer capitol of the world. By this time all of you have recieved your premium lists for this exciting event. If not contact Mildred Revel (707) 795-4797 or Aloysia Hard (707) 795-1846 and they will send you all of the information. I have been warned to expect a really good time and be prepared to see some really great dogs. I have also been told to expect a Margarita and Salsa bar. Mmmmmmmm - sounmds good to me. According to Aloysia everything is going as scheduled and they are expecting a large entry. The Awards Banquet and GWPCA Annual Meeting will be held Sunday evening at the host hotel. As per tradition a lively auction will be held during dinner, so don't forget your checkbooks. This auction helps defray the cost of putting on the "Nationals" and is a lot of fun. The rotating G\VPCA Duck Print will be there for all of you to see and bid on. You may be fue next lucky member to own this print, even if only for 1 year, your name will go down in GWPCA history as being an owner. Thats all for now, see you in sunny California.' . ..................... ..... ..... ...... ................. . . ........ ........................ ......... .. ....... -- "' •••. h •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ••••••. ....... ...••.••.. .......•.•........ ... -.-. ...•••.....••..••.•.........•••...•...... .... ••••• _ •-•••••• h ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• .... ...... .. ...

From the Members To the Editor; TO COLLAR, OR NOT TO COLLAR, THAT IS THE QUESTION: WHETHER 'TIS NOBLER IN THE MIND TO GIVE COMMAND, AND HOPE HE FOLLOWS, OR BY COLLARING, KNOW HE FOLLOWS.

To the Editor, I'ye been checking my mail box for months now I Alas and alack I It seems that the 1990-92 yearbook promised sooooo long ago has become like the proverbial "The Check is in the mail ". Oh, where oh where can it be? The initial deadline for listings in the yearbook was August 15,1993. That was extended until October 15, 1993. It is now July, 1, 1994 and still no yearbooks. By the time they are received, the information will be "ancient history" as many of the dogs included will most probably have gone on to additional titles and fields of glory. Are there any other members out there who feel as I do? How about an answer from the executive committee? Better yet... How about tlle yearbooks themsel ves'J Regards Karen Nelson, Lomita, CA

At least (with apologies to the Bard) that seems to be the question. Rhonda Haukoos addressed it in the April issue.Ray Calkins answered in the July issue. Both make valid points. Ray points out that training would be a lot easier if you collar, and not have to teach the dog to heel after bird work. I don't think that anyone would disagree with that statement. Trainability and good marmers do indeed separate a "truly" finished dog from the rest. And certainly, lessening the requirements of a Field Championship does not make a better dog. But does collaring indicate a lack of mmmers? Does collaring lessen the requirements? Is collaring all that bad? Or does it, as Rhonda states, allow the handler to say a word or two of praise for a job well done? I think so. That in itself might be worili considering collaring. Think about it. Your dog has just done everything you asked of it, (and done it wiili style) mld you can't even touch him or her and say "thaI1ks". No, I don't think collaring is all that bad. What is bad, is the abuse it is subjected to. To allow a handler to "drag" the dog thirty or forty yards from the point of bird contact, then hand off the dog to a scout to be dragged another 20 or so yards happens more often thmlnot. Talk about abuse of a nue.

Dear Edi tor, I have not received the last two copies of tlle Wire-News. Just wondered if my name was left off of your mailing list, could you check this out for me? Thank You, Jean Griggs

Should tlle judges allow this to happen? Of course not, but some do, and iliere in lies the mb. But that is another essay. 01UY two breeds do not allowing collaring after birdwork, German Shorthairs and us. The GSPCA just last year rejected collaring. I don't know the vote count, but shorthair trialers I have talked to indicated that it was close. I also understand, the GSPCA's board of directors approved collaring for their championship stakes. (???) Now the shOlthair folks can collar at their Championships ..... but not at a weekend trial. like ilie song begs "Tell Me Why?" Two, three years down the road when we wirehair trialers are ilie last of the "Breed", ilien what? Do we care what ilie oilier breeds do? What if we throw a trial and nobody comes? Farfetched? Maybe, and then again, maybe not. Fran Sakiey, Columbus NJ

Dear Jean, Checked it out for you. The mailing address we had for you was Cherry Hill, NJ. Thats where your newsletters probably are. This is why it is so important to contact the Treasurer of the GWPCA and give them your change of address. But not to worry, your July issue has been remailed. Editor

Dear Fran, Thank you for your comments. The collaring issue has supporters for and against and it's something we may very well have to vote on in the coming years. As club members we all have a voice in this issue concerning the GWP and any other issue conceming the betterment and welfare of the breed. This newsletter is open to any and all other comments conceming the collm'ing issue or anything else you would like discussed. Please, feel free to send in your thoughts. Ed.

Q20eal Reporter; Barb Rein

School has started - time for fall activities to get tmder way! If the shortage of news is any indicator, G\VP's have been having a vacation this summer along with their owners. That is good - our dogs benefit from a break from their work just as we do ... Only the following few clubs have reported any activities.

DELA W ARE VALLEY GWP CLUB Congratulations to Bernee Brawn. Her Dual Ch. DUNKEE'S TOP FLITE, JH is the only GWP to make both the Top Show Dogs and Top Ten Gun Dogs lists for 1993!! Continuing his winning way, TOPPER recently won a Sporting Group 1 at Twin Brooks K.c. all-breed show ... June 18 Bemee hostessed the 4th annual DVGWPC Fun Day at her home. The program includcd fun for all, good food, ganles for the dogs, a puppy match and their annual kill-yourself softball game. A good time was had by all despite the high temperatures and hmnidity .. Winners of DVGWPC's 1993 Achievement Awards are: CH. SHADRA'S WEST WIND FRITZ, JH, CGC (Mike Mullineaux)-Senior Hunter CH. SCHNELLBERG'S GRETTA, JH (Walt & Maureen Tait)-Championship JERELIN'S TORNADO TESS, JH (Ger-ald& Linda Krepak)-Junior Hunter CH/NAFC JUSTA TEQUILA SUNSET (Fran Sakiey & /Bernee Brawn)-Top Field Dog FOX HILLS MR. BADGER, UD, JH, Can CD (Stephanie & Jeffrey Shafer) -Utility Dog and Top Obedience Dog '" Coming up for Del Valley are a specialty show September 18 and hunting test October 2.

.EORI DETROIT GWP CLUB My apologies to Mike Braddock for not reporting in the last Local Barks that his SPEEDWAY'S COMEr took an Open Derby 4th in Ft. Detroit's April 9 field trial ... A May 28 allwalking stake field trial was Fort Detroit's spring field finale. Wirehair placements went to: OPEN DERBY 2ND: SGR DIRTY LAUNDRY (Bill Richardson) OPEN GUN DOG 2ND): AFTERHOUR SWEET MAGGIE MAY (Tom & Christine Kopfstein/H -Bob Wilson) ... Fort Detroit's annual summer Triple Header is a relaxing, educational and flID event. Newer members are encouraged to bring their Wires and participate. To introduce these newcomers to the various activities in which they can participate with their

dogs, a brief explanation and demonstration of field, showring and obedience procedure precedes each activity. Talk is kept to a minimum so there is maximum time for working with the dogs. Development of the GWP as an all-purpose dog is stressed throughout. As expected, the majority of new owners are most interested in their Wire's field potential. But even those that are reluctant can usually be talked into participating in the v31ious other areas. The basic program of field, show and obedience is constant, and new features are added each year to keep the Triple Header fresh. This year Gail Richardson gave a grooming demonstration - then spent several hours grooming young dogs for their inexperienced owners. Kathleen A. K. Yates, DVM talked about emergency first aid for dogs and gave a helpful list of items the consciencious owner should have on hand for traveling and emergencies. New member Mark Sargent, a Michigan D.N.R. staff member, described good wild bird habitat and talked about the Dept. of Natural Resources program to assist owners in the development of their grounds for maximum benefit to wild life. Highlight of the day every year has to be the potluck picnic. Fort Detroit ladies are excellent cooks, and the picnic is always a feast. Everyone eats too much. A blief business meeting completes the agenda ...Results of Ft. Detroit's' 94 specialty: WD/BW: Fr..D.CH UODIBAR'S BUSH MAN (J. & J. Pratt & H. Shelley) WE: JAMARS' WALTZ TIME (E.M.Ingram & M. Powell) BOB: CH. RIPSNORTER'S THUNDERHART (L. & J. George) BOS:CH. AFTERHOURS PRIVATE NUMBER (F. Neuwirth & c. Whitmore) Fort Detroit's fall dog activities get under way August 28 with a flIDhtmting test, followed by a licensed hunting test on Sept 10. Our October field trial dates conflict with the Nationals, so the trial has been cancelled. A Nov. 10-11 trial will conclude the 1994 events ... Congratulations to Kathleen Yates on her JIMKATH' S ALLURE's #1 status in the National Puppy/Derby standings!

GWP CLUB OF NORTHERN OHIO The club's July/August DralIthaar Dispatch announced that the July issue of DOG NEWS shows CH. THORNWOOD'S TRUE GRIT #1 and CH. AFTERHOURS WYR' N BO JEST #3 on the list of the top 5 dogs in contention for the Pedigree award. Congratulations to owners Barry & Patty Diehl (Grit) and Jean Renner (Bo) ...

OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Timely and informative information on Lyme Disease from the Univ. of lllinois School of Veterinary Medicine was published in the summer issue of the club's newsletter The Inquisitive Wire. In part it stated, "Signs of Lyme disease in dogs are fever, unwillingness to eat, sore joints, a stiff gait or lameness that may shift from one leg to another. The lameness may be sudden in onset." Further, since many diseases exhibit these signs, a trip to your veterinarian is recommended for diagnosis and treatment." ...

The GWPCSC has voted in some progressive innovations.

Marshall Simonds PO Box 828 Carlisle, MA 01741 July 12, 1994 Secretaries and Delegates AKC Sporting and Hound Breed Clubs Dear Secretary and Delegate: I write on behalf of the recently formed AKC Delegates' Standing Committee on Field Trial Clubs to report on the existence and activities of our committee and to request the assistance of your club in providing our committee with information to help us achieve the goals for which our committee was organized. By way of background, the Standing Conunittee on Field Trial Clubs was organized in September of 1993, and held its first working meeting on December 14, 1993. At this meeting we discussed the goals and objectives of our committee and developed a statement of goals as follows: 1. To make more effective at the Delegate level tlle representation and communication of the interests of clubs that conduct licensed and sanctioned field trials and hunting tests. 2. To identify and support efforts in the sporting and hound breeds to improve communications and performance enthusiasts.

between conformation

3. To share information and procedures useful to clubs who conduct field trials and hunting tests. 4. To identify ways of maintaining and enhancing relationships between clubs who conduct field trials and hunting tests and their communities. At our two subsequent meetings in March and June of 1994, we devoted our efforts to developing a questionnaire soliciting information and guidance from the parent clubs representing the Sporting breeds and the Hound breeds. A copy of the questionnaire is enclosed with this letter. We request that you share this questiomlaire with your board of Directors and if practicable, with your interested members. We will look for your written answers to the questions asked after your club has had a chance to give the issues due consideration. While we would like to receive answers in time for the next committee meeting which will occur on September 13, 1994, we recognize that this may be too short a time table given the difficulties of communicating during the SUlllillermonths. Obviously, we encourage the widest possible distribution of the questionnaire. Perhaps it can be reprinted and included in any club newsletter that may be available. We think it is important that response we receive should fairly reflect the views of the club rather than the view of one or two individuals. Our committee can be useful to field trial giving clubs only if we understand their concerns, problems and views about current procedures. We need your help if we hope to be of help to you. As noted ill the questionnaire, your written response should be sent to our committee secretary: Catherine M. Murphy, Secretary AKC Field Trial Clubs Committee American Brittany Club 100 Sanderling Walk Yorktown, VA 23692 We look forward to your response to the enclosed questionnaire. if there are other issues that you believe are important for our committee to consider, please include those other issues and your views in your reply. Sincerely, Marshall Simonds, Chairman AKC Field Trial Clubs Committee

(please read and respond to the questionnaire on the following page)

To: Sporting and Hound Breed Parent Clubs From: AKC Delegates' Standing committee on Field Trial Clubs RE: Initial Questionnaire Date July 12, 1994 1.

Are the current efforts of the A KC to provide education for judges working to your satisfaction? If not, what changes do you suggest? Are you concerned with the issue of the accountahility of judges for their decisions? Should there he new or additional procedures put in place to evaluate the performance of judges? If so, what approaches to this prohlem do YOIl believe would be constructive? ',-Vhat problems or risks do you foresee if greater efforts are made in this area of concern? 3.

Why does my relatively young dog have stained teeth and what can I do to prevent it? It is well-known that feeding SOfl, moist foods and table foods can promote the fonnation of denwl plaque more rapidly than if the dog is fed dry foods. Tins is due to particles in the mouth that serve as a matrix for oactelial growth and to the sugars

present in many of our own processed table foods. Obviously habits such as rock chewing and log-canying can also lead 10 wear and fracturing of teeth out of proportion to the dog's age. Putting these factors aside, what about the Incisors average hunting dog that is fed a balanced dry food diet and still has stained teeth at the age of two years') This problem seems to exist in all breeds of dogs at tlns time. We choose the best feeds Lmdstill have this problem. Most of the yellow-brown plaque accumulates on the upper camas sial teeth(premolars) and the lower eamassial teeth (molars) as well as on the neck of the eye teeth or canine teeth. vVhat begins as a soft slimy stain tums into hard calculus that needs to be cracked off with an ultrasonic scaler or a dental tool. How can this be prevented? Feeding hard biscuits and rawhides seems to help a little but botll can bling problems with tllem. Rawlnde in particular, since it is fairly indigestible, can cause vomiting in eager over-eaters. The abrasive action of bones eaten in the wild

.

"dental toys" assume that the dogs will gnaw on pear shaped soft nylon or ridged mbber cylinders filled with dog toothpaste. There is even a flossing toy who's nylon strands supposedly clean between the dog's teeth. I am a great fan of dog toys and games but don't think I've ever seen a dog consistently keep the teeth clean with one of these devices. 'When it comes to dental care, there is really no replacement for tlle hands on tooth bmshing approach. Start with the young dog and accustom tlle dog to having the finger tip mbbed along the gum line. Later wrap a gauze pad around the finger or use a soft toofubmsh to gently massage the gum line and remove plaque. The yellow stain on fue gauze pad shows how effective this C<1l1 be. An ingestible dog toothpaste can be used, or baking soda or just plain warm water. Dentrifice solutions containing chlorhexidene or zinc sulfate aTe also available. In the older dog with gun disease tllese can be very helpful in preventing mouth odor. If the teeth are too bad, a thorough dental scaling and polishing under sedation should be done before using preventative measures. The constant

bacterial shower to the blood stream from infected gums can leas to kidney problems. Why are we seeing so much dental staining in young dogs is not understood. The food may be affecting body chemistry. Regular tooth care is the only sensible prevention.

probably helped the wild dog avoid dental problems but our domestic dogs suffer from stomach initation, painful constipation and obstmctions when fed bones. A number of products have appeared on the market to prevent and remove plaque and tartar on canine teeth. These

GERMAN WIREHAIRED POINTER CLUB OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GWPSC SPECIALTY & SWEEPSTAKES Earthquakes, floods, brush fires and heat waves not withstanding, The Southern California German Wirehaired Pointer Qub's Spring Sweepstakes and Specialty was held under bright blue skies and balmy breezes on June 5 at Brookside Park in Pasadena. Ticked sales at the Rose Bowl for the next days start of W orId cup soccer were hotter than the temperatures at the Park, which is adjacent to the famed Bowl. The ring was set up under a copse of tall shady trees and the breeze was enough to keep dogs and handlers calm, cool and collected. We were also blessed with an 8:30 AM ring time for the five puppies entered in the Sweepstakes. the only one missing was .... the judge. Chairman Usa Jaffe, unflappable as usual, found a substitute judge in Usa McMillan, who judges our sweeps last year. Things got underway about twenty minutes later. Many thanks to Usa McMillan (Shadowfox Siberians) for her willingness to help and for her support in sponsoring the Best of Breed award. Here's the lineup of puppies entered in the Sweepstakes as well as the results. The winners were presented with unique planters which were hand painted with a Wirehair motif by Usa Jaffe.

the appropriate class on them. All of the trophies were assembled, decorated and painted by usa Jaffe, After all the winners were announced the Club held a Pot Luck late breakfast/early lunch under the shade of the trees. Everything from quiche (a must in California, you know) to fresh fruit salad, no one went away hungry. Following is a list of aU entries and the eventual winners. congratulations to all and a sincere and grateful "than you" to organizer, Usa Jaffe. POINTERS 8:50 AM

Action is pending for House Bill 1423 and Senate Bill 340, better known as the Extra Label Drug Use bills. This bill would allow veterinarians to legally administer dmgs to animals, even though these dmgs are only labeled for human use. Many common veterinary medicines fall into this category. Opposition from animal agriculture interests and a few dmg manufactures could prevent passage if otlIer groups do not come forward with support for these bills. You can help by contacting your federal representative and ask them to contact Charles W. Stenholm of Texan and Representative Hemy A. Waxman of California and tell them that you continue to support HR 142.1.

Delaware Valley GWP Field Trial The Del-Val Club hosted a one day all walking trial at the York Pointer & Setter Club in Rossville, PA. The all waIking venue has gained a lot of interest here in the east, it's bringing in people new to the sport, while at the same time the "old hands" come out to support and to have some fml. TIle Scuykill Valley GSP Gub hosts a trial on Saturday on the same grounds, with both clubs working together to put on a great event. Many Thanks to the Schuykill VaIley members who hung around to lend a helping hand for our trial. Without willing members to help out, running a trial can be a headache. Luckily Del Val has some "newer" members who worked hard for the club. Bill Koeber filled in when we needed a gunner, Jan Fast took over fIlling in paperwork and was the official line marshall. Jerry Clark becan1e the "shopper" when we needed something from the store and as always Fran Sakiey, Mal Decker and Rich Bucca did whatever needed to be done. The Wires did pretty good this weekend. We had a brother and sister act with Fran Sakiey's and Bemee Brawn's Ch. Justa Tequila Sunset JH winning the 21 dog Amateur Gun Dog stake, thus finishing her Amateur Field Championship. Ch. Dunkees Justa Top Aite JH completed his long awaited Water Test to become an official Dual and Amateur Field Champion. Hellbenders Laser Two (owner/handler Bill Koeber) was the winner of the 14 dog Open Derby held by Schuykill Valley on Saturday. A GSP owned by Dot & Dick Kern, Timberdoodles Bee Line finished her FC/ AFC on Saturday by winning the 20 dog Amateur Gun Dog stake. Although the temperatures were well into the 80' s both days, the dogs seemed to fare better then their handlers. We saw a lot of red faces, which tells us all it's time to get back into shape. Del -V als faIl trial will be held November 5 & 6 at the English Setter Club in Medford NJ. For more information contact Maureen Tait (609) 261-3271.

Finickey Eater? Do you have a dog that just won't eat? It doesn't seem to matter what kind of dog food you put in front of him, or what time of the year it is, or how hard he works? I do and it drove me crazy. Everyone from my vet to judges at shows would remark on the dogs thinness. This particular dog's mother wasn't a great eater either. Oh yes, she would eat enough to keep the humane shelter away from the door, and she could go all day and never tire out, but it was annoying. I tried everything fOIDlthe "give her the food and take it away in ten minutes" routine to not feeding her for a whole day. These actions would work for a day or so, and then right back to ho-hum. When you buy expensive dog food, it is even more annoying. You feel as though you have just paid off the National Debt at your local feed store, rip open the bag just waiting for those doggy looks of joy you normally associate with dinner time, pour the stuff in a bowl and watch them yawn and walk away. You want to scream. If you own a dog like this, I may have found a solution, if even for just those long show or trial weekends. Cat food. Yup, those little, tiny, smelly cans of mashed fish or chichen or beef or whatever it may be. Mix in just a wee bit, (I use half a can) and watch thenl suck up fue chow. I don't know if it will work forever, but for now it is doing the job. It must be the disgusting smell that draws the dog to it, it can't be the taste. I have a cat who has been fed Science Diet all of her life and I gave her a can as a special treat. This cat took one little bite, looked at me with a look that would kill (if you own a cat you know the look) and strolled away. Now as a word of caution, you can't feed your dog a steady ration of cat food. It was made for the feline digestive tract not a canines. But for special occasions, it does tlle trick. One other word of warning, you won't want to be sitting face level with your Wire after he eats this stuff. Cat food really smells bad, and when it gets in those whiskers, watch out. My husband swore there was something dead under his chair one night, he kept getting down on fue floor and looking for where tIns disgusting smell was coming from Then tlle dogs came up and gave him a big Wire kiss. I've never heard such language before.

think every time a dog licks your face. I feel that there are four main reasons why dogs acquire this habit: confinement, hunger in between feedings, boredom, and the female's matemal instinct to clean the nest. There are

ways to curb this habit. The Alpar Laboratories has developed a "highly purified crystalline" edible protien fraction dalled FOR-I3ID. Simply sprinkle the powder on your dog's food (follow the directions). It causes an unpalatable taste in the feces. Also, there are a few home remedies. Mix a tablespoon of meat tenderizer for a large dog and a teaspoon for a small dog in the food for 5 to 7 days, or purchase alfalfa tablets from your local health food store. Give them straight or crush and sprinkle over the dogs food. Both remedies have the sanle effect on the dog's stool. Keep in mind every dog that your dog comes in contact with on a daily basis must also be treated for tills method to be effective. Switching your dog to a self feeder filled with dry dog food will help the boredom and hunger urges. Also, giving your dog chew toys seems to help. A combinatin of the previous methods and more attention and exercise will aid in breaking or reducing tIlls undersirab1e habit

.Rescue Nevvs . Leslie & Irv Eagle of Sautee Georgia report that they are in pocession of a male Wirehair rescued after being Illt by a car.
