the 4th of July weekend. Our

by Michele


ne of the most exciting aspects of having a litter is watching the pups grow into young adulthood. We study them at 7 or 8 weeks, evaluate structure and stack rank the pups in terms of quality. We make bold predictions of how we think they will grow up, their future success and the ribbons and awards to come. For some the journey to their championship is straightforward and for others there is an interesting tale that accompanies crossing the finish line.

Wrath One of the things you learn when showing a dog is that many of life’s lessons can be applied to the show ring. We learned the true meaning of “when you least expect it” with our first show dog. This dog got off to a normal enough start considering he was in the hands of earnest, but very novice owners. He picked up points at a steady pace, one or two at a time, and singled out. The first show that drew majors required this dog to go Best of Winners. He did, and the first major was achieved. “Piece of cake” we naively thought. We entered him in a series of shows over

hopes soared – there were majors every day. We set off on our long weekend of showing, confident that we would be returning home with a Champion. We did return home with a champion, but it was six months and many shows later. Between that weekend and the crowning moment when that final major was achieved there were several major reserves, wins that needed to cross over but didn’t, and shows where the entry fell just short of the count needed for those elusive three points. And once we stopped expecting it to happen it finally did and the setting could not have been better. Our first Champion finished in front of the home town crowd, to the applause of our friends and his breeder, at a benched show, where for two solid days we could bask in the glory of that win. It is a memory I will have forever. And then there’s the dog that just needs that last single point to finish. We’ve had a few of these, both with varying degrees of big and important wins. This particular bitch, my first show dog, had both majors and was slowing working down the last 5 single points. We had one final point to go. After a series of single point shows where we went reserve or worse, we entered the ring at a large show on a specialty weekend. We were in a very large open class – the entry in this class alone constituted a major. Once all of the dogs had been examined, the judge immediately walked over to us, placed my bitch at the front of the line and we were awarded first place. It was the biggest class of the day. Filled with anticipation, we walked into the ring for winners, confident we’d be coming out with a ribbon. We did – reserve. The American Bred entry – a class of one was Winner’s Bitch. It is the only time I walked out of the ring and wanted to cry. One month later we found ourselves in a similar situation, and after winning the largest class of the day I stood in the ring for winner’s, looked down at my bitch, and said “Honey, stay with me on

this”. On the first go round the judge pointed to us. So I ended up with that big specialty weekend win, just not on the day I thought it would happen! It’s not just the first show dogs, or the novice handlers who have tales to tell. Experience does not always matter, but attention to detail does. It is not good enough to arrive at the dog show with a dog in the crate. You need to have the right dog. On this particular day, a wellintended spouse thoughtfully helped out his wife by packing the car for her. Imagine her surprise when she opened the crate door to find her dog – unfortunately not the one that was entered. Even worse was the husband and wife team that thought the other one had put the dog in the car – and you guessed it – arrived at the dog show only to find that they had transported an empty crate. These are the things that keep us humble.

point in dogs each day, and on the first day this dog was awarded Winner’s Dog and Best of Opposite Sex over a male special. With one point safely retired, we took the picture and crossed our fingers that Sunday would be “The Day”. Shortly after the picture was taken, our friends came over and congratulated us on finishing our boy. We thanked them but told them he still needed a single point. They asked us if we had added the male special to the point count. We had not. A quick check of the catalog confirmed they were right. We found the photographer and the judge and retook the picture – this time with New Champion proudly displayed.

Imagine her surprise when she opened the crate door to find her dog – unfortunately not the one that was entered.

The ability to perform simple math and to keep accurate records is another skill worth developing. How many people do you know who have thought they had a finished champion, only to find later out that they were one point short. Usually this is discovered several weeks later, when a quick check of the AKC website reveals that the total is not quite 15. As in horseshoes, close doesn’t count. A few years ago we erred in the opposite direction. We had a dog that needed two single points. The entry was a single

E Dalmatians |

And then there are those dogs, who have amassed impressive wins, that you are certain will finish at the next show. And then in the blink of an eye, your plans are changed. We had one of these too. This young male was awarded Best of Winners at our National Specialty. In need of a final major to finish, we planned to take him to our regional specialty shows the following month. It was a Saturday morning and I was running on the treadmill when my husband came racing into the house with a bloody-mouthed dog in tow. “Danny’s been kicked and I need you to look at his mouth while I catch the horse”. I looked down at the dog, wondering what I would find when I opened his mouth. Amazingly, there was no obvious damage. All of his teeth were accounted for, he had not bitten his tongue, and after carefully cleaning him up, this dog went over to his housemates, tail wagging and curled up on the floor

next to his mom. With the horse safely back in his stall, my husband inspected the dog. He found a small cut on his upper lip and we decided to take him to the vet to have it stitched. We dropped the dog off with the instruction to return in about an hour. We were not expecting what came next. Because of how sensitive the dog’s muzzle was, the vet decided to do an x-ray. The x-ray showed that the dog’s jaw had been fractured. He ended up at the local veterinary hospital the following week to have a splint glued to the roof of his mouth to set his jaw. Six weeks later, after spending most of that time in a crate and eating meals of pureed dog food, the splint was removed and we had confirmation that the jaw had healed properly, no issues with teeth or bite. Our dog would be fine! He finished his championship about 2 months later. Thankfully, there is not always this much drama associated with finishing a dog’s championship. Some of them even make it look easy, and for all of them it should be cause for celebration. We are at that stage with our most recent litter – the wins are mounting and one by one the championships are being awarded – each pup at their own pace and in their own good time. We love every phone call we receive reporting the latest win. The joy is in the journey and being able to share it with others. Good luck and good showing to all those young pups and their owners. May you enjoy each and every stop on your way – to crossing the finish line!

LUA Registration


he DCA was required to hold a vote in June 2011 as to whether or not the members of DCA wanted the LUA dogs registered with AKC. When the votes were counted more members were in favor and the proposal passed. The vote whether Yea or Nay was never going to be the definitive reason that the dogs in question would or wouldn’t be registered. AKC found themselves in a difficult position because while they promote healthy pure bred dogs and the LUA eventually could produce Dalmatians free of the stone forming gene, DCA did not want to register these dogs. The information below was not easy to find on the AKC website. You have to find the Chairman’s Report for October and then drill down to board minutes and about halfway through the minutes there was the information that the AKC was opening the Stud book to all LUA dogs if they meet the criteria. EXECUTIVE SECRETARY’S REPORT Dalmatian Registration Procedures Following

it was VOTED (unanimously) to adopt the following procedures to be used for registration of Dalmatians descended from “Stocklore Stipples” known as LUA (low uric acid) Dalmatians, a motion by Dr. Davies, seconded by Dr. Battaglia, it was VOTED (unanimously) to adopt the following procedures to be used for registration of Dalmatians descended from “Stocklore Stipples” known as LUA (low uric acid) Dalmatians, effective November 1, 2011. REGISTRATION PROCEDURES 1) An Open Registration application is required: a) Include pedigree for the dog. While application only calls for a three- generation pedigree, the pedigree in this case must go back to and to document that the dog in questions is a descendent of Stocklore

Stipples,Final Bd. Pg. 4 October 10 – 11, 2011 NS 601000. All dogs in the pedigree must be AKC registered or AKC registrable. b) Include photographs of the dog, as required as part of the Open Registration process. 2) Application is reviewed and pedigree researched by AKC staff. 3) The dog must be tested for the normal SLC2A9 gene. 4) Only dogs tested as homozygous or heterozygous for the normal SLC2A9 gene will be registered under this program (see 6 below). The test results will be recorded

by OFA, with OFA covering the cost of this recording for one year, and the DCA covering the next two years. The results must accompany the Open Registration application. 5) Applicants that qualify will be registered with an “NY” prefix. The same “NY” would also appear as a registration prefix for all of their descendants. 6) Any descendants of Stocklore Stipples that do not test as homozygous or heterozygous for the normal SLC2A9 gene would not be eligible under this program to receive the “NY” prefix directly as the whole purpose of the Open Registration was to introduce the normal gene into breeding programs at the option of the breeders. Such dogs, which only carry the same mutated gene as in presently registered Dalmatians, would be eligible to apply for AKC registration, which would include the NY designation, provided both parents are AKC registered dogs, at least one of which carries the NY designation. Such registration of these dogs during the Open Registration period can only be accomplished as a member of a registrable

litter. 7) If it comes to AKC’s attention that any imported dog is a descendent of Stocklore Stipples, that dog would receive the “NY” prefix. Each application is researched and handled on a caseby-case basis. 8) The Open Registration period will be for three years (November 1, 2011 through November 1, 2014). However, the policy on imported dog will remain in effect indefinitely. 9) Frozen Semen may be registered only if the dog that produced it is deceased, and if it meets the requirements above. Any living dog must meet the Open Registration procedure, after which its frozen semen may be used to produce an AKC registrable litter. 10) Once a dog is registered under this procedure, any descendants may be registered under regular AKC registration procedures. This would include any litter whelped prior to the dog’s registration. As prior registrations of such litters was previously prohibited by AKC, any late penalty would be waived. reprinted directly from the AKC website
