AMERICA’S DOG SHOW It’s Westminster Weekend and we welcome you to America’s Dog Show, the 137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show – with history-making changes for 2013. Whether you are joining us in person, on our website, via Facebook or Twitter, on our new free App for iphones or Androids, or on live television, we are delighted to have you with us. Our Group and Best In Show competition takes place in the evenings in Madison Square Garden once again, where we have been almost exclusively since 1877. This is televised live on CNBC on Monday night and on USA Network on Tuesday night. Our move to to Piers 92/94 for the daytime portion of our judging – the breed judging –allows us to return to the true benching of our dogs, something that makes us a bit unique in the dog show world. Even in the vast expanse of more than 200,000 square feet of exhibition space, you will now be able to easily find particular dogs, owners and handlers, and visit with them “up close and personal.” And this year, for the first time, the breed judging is streamed live to our website for every minute of judging in every breed and variety. If you’re here with us in person, you will see that the benching area is the heart and soul of Westminster, the chance to learn about the breeds and about responsible ownership from people who have devoted their lives to their dogs, in the show rings and in their homes. We hope you will take advantage of that opportunity. Our entry of more than 2,700 dogs, the largest entry in 15 years, makes the show more competitive – as if it wasn’t enough so already – and makes it more fun for more exhibitors and for the spectators, too. So welcome to Westminster 2013. No matter where you are, we results, are happy thatand you are, For more up-to-the-minute video inphoto some fashion,ofhere making history with us.and to coverage the show, visit www.akc.org receive daily updates and show results via Facebook, Enjoy the show! visit www.facebook.com/americankennelclub.

Editorial

SETTING AKC APART FROM OTHER DOG REGISTRIES Why should you register your dog with the AKC other than the fact it is a not-for-profit organization and the largest purebred dog registry in world? Well there are any number of legitimate reasons to so do including its devotion to assisting tens of thousands of volunteers and teachers across America to teach responsible dog ownership and safety around dogs. It of course also created and supports the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation, which funds research projects focusing on the genetics of disease, the canine genome map and clinical studies. AKC has donated over $20 to the 10 Dog News

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK The ‘MY DOG CAN DO THIS’ competition is probably the hottest new commodity at dog shows today. A perfect lure to capture the imagination of the dog owner in your geographic area this attraction sees hundreds of spectators with their dogs lined up throughout the day and increases attendance at shows immeasurably. What with so many people worrying about the cost of financing a dog show how about a little ingenuity-introduce this event, advertise the hell out of it and watch your attendance gate double or triple or do even more than that!

Judges Advancement Program

S

ome judgeS are queStioning the new advancing SyStem for judgeS by maintaining that it is unfair in that some judges are being asked to advance more quickly than others. This advancement is done via American Kennel Club approval for an entire group or a large number of breeds all at once to a few individuals instead of the customary handful of breeds other judges may apply for. A little history is in order: there was one time fifty plus years ago when one man decreed who would get what breeds. This man, AKC’s Len Brumby, who was in charge of judges, had the ultimate power in deciding on breeds/groups. In hindsight, it was not a bad system as long as you were on Len’s good side, but woe be those who crossed him! When he retired, others in charge of judges began to devise this system and that and then another in an attempt to establish a “fairer” playing field and make everyone equal. Thus, the entire judging process subsequently grew into the monumental, expensive albatross it is today. This newest system (which is a bit complicated to understand) is an attempt to cut through some of the requirements and advance those individuals who have proven themselves as successful breeders/exhibitors/handlers/ judges to be approved to adjudicate over more breeds than others who might not possess the same talents. Judging does require special talents – the proverbial “eye” for a dog is inherent and it does exist. In many ways, a judge must be an artist who has a canvas of the mental “perfect” dog in his/her head and the ability to mentally weigh the merits of that particular dog against that canvas and then against others in the ring on the day. This “eye for a dog” cannot be taught and not everyone has this unique talent. The mistake the AKC has made in the past is to treat everyone as equals when they are not. The more AKC tried to establish a “fair” system, the more mired it became in failing to look down the road and realize that it needed to fill a void of good judges to service the extensive number of dog shows around the country. Too many of our judges today are in over their heads because the system of just checking boxes had little to do with ability. For the truth of the matter is that we have some bad judges, too many mediocre ones, some good ones and a few really great ones. AKC needs to advance those who have already proven themselves in the ring at a faster pace to fill this void. It also needs to encourage potential judges who have been successful breeders/exhibitors/handlers by giving them enough breeds/group to begin a judging career. The current sad fact is that because of the high cost of travel and clustering, few clubs can afford to bring in judges with few breeds or even just one group without the judge absorbing the expense him/herself. Also, judges need the entries to sort through in order to feel comfortable in a breed. For as today’s judges are mediocre or fair at best, so too are the dogs being shown. A large entry, usually found at a multishow cluster where exhibitors are looking for points/majors,

gives a judge the opportunity to “sink their teeth” into a breed and separate the wheat from the chaff. Therefore, judges need this opportunity to prove their mettle. While on the subject of judges proving their worth, it is hard not to find fault with AKC’s requirement that Field Representatives are the ones to determine whether or not a judge did a good job in the ring. If Field Reps were so great with every breed, those who retire and go into judging should be automatically granted all-breeds! Instead, they have to labor like the rest of us, thereby being removed from the lofty position of knowing every breed to just knowing a few breeds. It makes no sense. Instead of watching judges and writing reports on their findings, Field Reps would be better utilized if they used their time to circulate around the show grounds, function as AKC’s “man on the scene” answering myriad questions and assisting show clubs and other officials when they encounter issues. This whole observation system is a joke when you watch a Field Rep giving a passing grade to a judge who you know is mediocre at best. When referencing sense – as in what is logical and thinking – it is impossible to not also reference “dollars-and-cents.” Everything about putting on a dog show is expensive today and everything about showing and judging dogs is expensive. Show giving clubs hope to have enough entries to cover their expenses and exhibitors enter their dogs expecting that their monies will be spent on fair, honest and acute knowledge and understanding of a breed. No one is looking for judges who just point at a familiar face, are bored with the dogs, short tempered with the exhibitors/handlers, and/or just drifting along in the ring. To go back to the theme of this column, not all judges are equal. Not everyone was born with that inherent and illusive “eye for a dog.” Not all judges should be treated the same. It is important to think in the context that not every artist is a Rembrandt or Picasso (to consider opposite spectrums in the art world) and not everyone can spot that unknown “gem.” It is about time that AKC recognizes the need to encourage those who are proven in the ring and let them advance at a quicker pace than others. Furthermore, while there are those who say judges need to attend seminars, memorize breed standards for interviews and pass written tests, it is important to note two things: someone can be the best student in the world, but still be unable to apply that knowledge when faced with a real, living situation; and no two people are the same with identical abilities. Judging is more of an art than a clear-cut, one-size fits all science.

IRVING’s ImpRessIoNs By Ronnie Irving

Two subjects this week in an attempt to clarify some of the things which are happening these days in the United Kingdom dog scene. The first looks at the recent criticism in the House of Commons of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), the UK equivalent of HSUS. The second looks at the immediate negative public reaction against the proposal that TKC should ‘legalise’ the use of hairspray on Poodles and chalk on West Highland White Terriers and Bull Terriers. RSPCA – SHOW DOGS ARE MUTANTS Just to remind readers – it was the RSPCA whose Chief vet said on the critical TV program in 2008 that purebred dogs were mutants and that Crufts was nothing more than a beauty pageant. It was the RSPCA which was the first to pull out of attending Crufts and which thereafter worked very hard to persuade the BBC and then more recently Channel 4 and its sister companies not to broadcast the show on TV. (It was successful with the BBC but Channel 4 which is another mainstream terrestrial TV channel will this year broadcast the event.) Though the language is now slightly less extreme it is still the RSPCA which is working hard to destroy dog shows by completely unreasonably putting out such messages as the following which appears on its website: “Nowadays, in order to enter dog shows such as Crufts, dogs have to: • be pedigree dogs, that are registered with TKC • conform to written breed standards “The RSPCA believes that both of these requirements lead to the serious 18 Dog News

health and welfare problems experienced by pedigree dogs. “For dogs to be registered as pedigree, both their parents must be registered members of the same single breed. This means that dogs of different breeds have been bred separately for many years and new genetic material cannot normally be introduced. “For each breed of dog it recognizes, TKC also sets a written ‘breed standard’ which describes what a ‘perfect’ example of that breed of dog should look like. At dog shows such as Crufts, the judge must compare each dog against the breed standard to identify a winner that best matches this standard. In general, we believe that current breed standards focus primarily on what dogs look like rather than their health, welfare and temperament. “In order to win dog shows, pedigree dogs have been bred to emphasise certain physical features. Some features have become so extreme that they can cause pain and suffering, some make dogs prone to particular disorders, and some prevent them from behaving normally. A recent study showed that all of the 50 most popular dog breeds have some aspect

of their body which can cause suffering. We believe that breeding for exaggerated physical features and the breeding of closely related dogs (for anything other than scientifically proven welfare reasons) is morally and ethically unjustifiable.” These messages, however unreasonable and distorted they may appear, are still being put out by the RSPCA. PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE What has happened recently in the House of Commons is that a Member of Parliament, Simon Hart, has tabled a Parliamentary debate on the role of the RSPCA as a private prosecutor. In England it is mainly the RSPCA, not the English equivalent of the District Attorney, that brings court cases for breaches of animal welfare legislation. The main message behind Mr. Hart’s attack on the RSPCA was that it targets vulnerable people, the elderly, the disabled and the mentally ill. He claims that the RSPCA’s prosecution policy is often determined more by politics and by commercial considerations with an eye to increasing its financial funds by getting the right PR from its activities - and not enough by real animal welfare needs.

Did You Watch The AENC On ABC On February 2, 2013 And If So What Did You Think Of The Airing? Joy S. BrewSter I was unable to watch due to other commitments, but I did hear from others that they thought it was one of the best coverages of the show to-date. Phil Booth Sorry to say didn’t watch. Sarah Perchick No, why watch when I know the ending?

1) Were you surprised to learn that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) shares less than 1 per cent of its donations with local pet shelters while this so-called animal rights group socked away over $2.5 million of Americans’ donations in its own pension plan while raising over $131 million from the public? (figures supplied by HUMANE WATCH.ORG and HUMANE FOR PETS.COM). 2) Should AKC get involved in passing this message on and if so, how should this be accomplished?

Question of the Week

Sally carr Surprised? No. If the AKC can legally, without risking a lawsuit, advertise to the general public of this sham they should go forward. Listing the “officers” and those receiving pensions AND the amounts they receive may be an eye opener. Most savvy readers of Dog News and other show publications realize the HSUS is squirrel-

22 Dog News

ing away funds which the public feels goes to shelters. Informing the average animal lover via the cheapest, quickest and most effective method (internet, Facebook, Twitter) would certainly be worthwhile.

chriStian ManeloPouloS No I am not surprised by these figures, it’s the business of Charity. Of course the AKC should communicate this message to the general public. This group (HSUS) and others like it have created a mindset with the general public that pure bred dogs and breeders are bad. If groups like HSUS lost their non-profit tax exemptions and their charitable funding, then perhaps they’d move on to another cause people would donate too i.e.: starving children in Africa or Europe. AKC should have a TV commercial during its own AKC Show broadcast last weekend attacking them, also one during the Westminster telecast next week. AKC utilizes the internet well sending me emails on an almost daily basis for Family Dog magazine, Pet Health insurance and asking for advertising in Weekly Wins Gallery. Perhaps they could email me and others about telling us about these figures for HSUS funds? Perhaps if more people are aware they wouldn’t give them their charitable monies.

babbling Westminster- An Addiction?

I thInk I have mentIoned my fIrst vIsIt to WestmInster and what a fantastic experience it was. Ever since it has been my ambition to attend the show every year. The same with Crufts- and recently The AKC/ Eukanuba show has been added to the list of addictions... Well, I have had to miss a few of all of them, and this year we had decided to not go to NY, but as the event was getting closer, the more we felt the Westminster urge- so we’re going. When we first started our trips to WKC, Crufts took place a week earlier- so we were flying to NY immediately after Crufts- then conveniently located in London. So coming from a show with 15-18,000 dogs (at the time) with well filled classes- and in some breeds huge entries- to a show with 2,500 dogs, mainly champions- really illustrated the difference between the 2 countries and actually even people’s attitudes and competitiveness. I recall some of my very British friends being appalled by the common behavior of the American public, who openly showed their feelings and support for the dogs by excessive clapping and cheering!!!! Disgusting!!!?? Initially even class dogs could be shown at Westminster- and I will forever remember a lady with a Westie, who with great pride showed her dog year after year, never won anything, but she was possibly “over the moon” being able to brag to her friends that her dog had actually been part of the show. I think you had to qualify to be able to enterand some dogs made you wonder… Later when limited to champions only, I personally thought the show lost a little charm, but on the other hand left more space for top quality dogs for us all to enjoy watching. Still you wonder at times how some of the dogs got there… Many years earlier when I made my first trip to Crufts, there was no qualification required and much of the excitement for exhibitors as well as

26 Dog News

visitors was watching “the Big Breeders” bringing out young, promising puppies. In some cases just to launch them at this show to show the world as stars of the future- but in many cases some of the more commercial breeders (no negative undertone!) entered promising puppies which were also offered for sale in the catalogue! And even older dogs were entered with a “for sale” following the name. Of course, for many of us the trip to the show in addition to watch, learn and update yourself on what happened over there, was to find something exciting to take home and add to your own show-or breeding team. (We made several purchases at Crufts ourselves- although my wife in true style during a trip to the showpurchased a cute little puppy at Harrods. Proved to be a PBGV from the first litter born in the UK: Named Hubbestad Harrods he was the first PBGV ever in Scandinavia- and after some research it was found out that he was bred by the well known Bassett breeders Seiffert & Wells-Meacham who I think was responsible for introducing a young Nick Frost to the breed! (Harry – as he was called- did quite a bit of winningalthough no judges knew anything about the breed!!!)) Crufts is still visited by enthusiasts and breeders from all over the world, but I think today there are proportionally more overseas visitors in NY than in Birmingham, UK for the show. In days gone by “the world” flocked to the UK for new exciting show dogs- and I still think the country has some of the best breeders in the world, but looking in a global perspective the American influence has only increased year after year. I am frequently asked which of the 3 shows is my favorite. Not an easy question to answer, as all 3 have a different set up and purpose. What makes Crufts so wonderful is of course the chance to watch dogs in nearly every breed in numbers and in big classes. Also the fact that despite having a handful of professional handlers in action, the “laymen” have as good a chance to do well! Which you will find is clearly obvious if you ever CoNtiNueD oN page 106

Ain’t Got Time For This

W

ednesday morning, with Man-bag over my left shoulder, a large grapefruit held in my left hand, and Murphy French, our French Bulldog, dancing at the end of the bright blue leash surrounding my right wrist, I open the front door to the Health Clinic with the keys held in my right hand, hoping not to fall flat on my face. “Murphy, Murphy, my Little Piggy, come to Aunt Barb!” Nurse Barb (NB) squeals from our joint office as we enter through the glass doors. I drop the bright blue leash, releasing Murphy French. He races to NB with his usual enthusiasm for those he adores. NB spends several minutes fawning over Murphy French, sending little spikes of blonde hair everywhere. “OMG, OMG!” NB boldly states while releasing Murphy French. “You must see this---it is so damned funny I can’t stand it---I hope I can download it as my new ring tone,” she exclaims while clicking away at her keyboard and bringing YouTube to life on the screen. NB slides the arrow with her cursor to the start button and pushes, revealing an evening news program featuring a story about a fire in an apartment building and a woman, named Sweet Brown, who is describing her version of what happened: “Well I woke up to go get me a cold pop, and then I thought somebody was barbacuin’ and I said, Oh Lord, Oh Jesus, it’s a fire. Then I ran out. I didn’t grab no shoes or nothin’. Jesus, I ran for my life, and then tha smoke got me. I got bronchitis. Ain’t nobody got time for that.” I buckle over, fall to the floor, and begin laughing so hard, that Murphy French spins in circles, wondering if I am having a seizure. Following the initial news broadcast and interview of Sweet Brown, a foot-tapping remix of the news clip appears, with her line, “I got bronchitis,” and “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” sending me into further fits of laughter. In love with my new You Tube sensation, Sweet Brown, I share her catchphrase, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” with everyone who comes into the clinic. I even rise the following morning---Thursday---at 2:30 AM to catch a 5:15 flight to Portland, Oregon for the Rose City Classic Cluster of Dog Shows singing, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” wonder-

ing why in hell I chose to depart so early in the morning. DROID---my trusty hand-held communication device--- informed me on Tuesday of my USAIR upgrade to First Class from Richmond, VA to Charlotte, NC, while also, in the same sentence, telling me that I was not upgraded for the flight from Charlotte to Portland. Jumping out of the shower, I wish, now they had never teased me with the upgrade for the forty-five minute flight, only to send my ass back to cattle-class for the five-hour flight to Portland. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” I say out loud, while aggressively drying my back with a large, green bath towel. I depart our rural Virginia home, “Holly Springs,” at 3:15 AM for the one-hour drive to the Richmond International Airport. I am excited about the upcoming assignment. Once again, I shall judge two of my favorite US dog shows (Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon and Tualatin Kennel Club), not to mention having the opportunity to see numerous West Coast friends and to spend time with my good friend, DOT (Daughter of Thor), who is flying in from Chicago to observe new breeds and to be mentored. The flight from Richmond to Charlotte departs on time and I sit in the First Class seat with cautious enthusiasm, knowing full well of my return to coach from Charlotte to Portland. We land in Charlotte. I gather my belongings and proceed directly to the departure gate in hopes of being the first one on the standby list for First Class. “I am sorry sir---First Class has checked in full. You will need to take your originally assigned seat,” USAIR ticket agent, Rolanda, informs me, as I mumble, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” under my breath. I locate a seat to the left of the gate entrance door and against the wall. Every so often, I look up at the electronic sign above Rolanda’s head hoping to read, “Boarding Flight 0090 to Portland,” but instead I read “Flight 0090 to Atlanta, Phoenix, Portland.” “There must be some mistake. Surely, I am not flying to Atlanta from Charlotte, then to Phoenix, and then to Portland. What the hell? Richmond to Charlotte, Charlotte to Atlanta, Atlanta to Phoenix, Phoenix to Portland? This cannot be so!” I say under my breath with frustration while re-approaching Rolanda at the gate counter. “Excuse me, CoNtiNueD oN page 110

THE Westminster TIMES

Issue #5

This is the fifth in a regular series of news and updates for the 137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show to be held February 11-12, 2013.

The Garden and The Piers

Best of both worlds for Westminster 137

F

or the first time in its history, the Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will stage its event in two spectacular venues. The 137th edition will once again, as it has in virtually every year of its existence since 1877, have competition in the Groups on Monday and Tuesday nights, February 11-12, 2013, and eventually crown the Best In Show winner on Tuesday evening at the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden. New in 2013 is the shift of the breed judging during those days to Piers 92/94 on the West side of Manhattan, a few blocks north of the Garden. The Piers offers over 200,000 square feet of column-free exhibition space and 20-foot high ceilings, and views of the Hudson River and New York City skyline. Here, Westminster and Show Superintendent MB-F will create a setting with 12 rings, lots of benching, and plenty of space for exhibitors, spectators and vendors. The Piers are just that, two long separate side-by-side piers jutting like fingers out into the Hudson River (separating New York and New Jersey). It is a beautiful setting for the home of many trade shows and special art, fashion and design events during the course of the year. Many dog fanciers remember back to the days in the 1990s when Pier 92 hosted what has become the Meadowlands Specialty Dog Shows in New Jersey in recent years, held the weekend before Westminster. The move to the Piers, and the resultant increase in space – in particular, benching space- allows Westminster to increase its entry limit for the first time since 1991. The resultant 2013 entry of 2,721 is the club’s highest since 1998, as America’s Dog Show extends its standing as the second-longest continuously-held sporting event in this country. There are entries in all of the 187 breeds and varieties eligible for this year’s shows, and entries from all 50 states, Washington D.C. and several foreign countries. Golden Retrievers lead the way with 61, followed by Labrador Retrievers (54), Rhodesian Ridgebacks (50), French Bulldogs (46), Australian Shepherds (43) and Chinese Cresteds (40). There are 73 total entries in three varieties of Dachshunds. Five breeds have single entries: Plott, Anatolian Shepherd Dog, Kuvasz, Norwegian Lundehund and Entlebucher Mountain Dog. There are two breeds newly-recognized by the American Kennel Club that are eligible for Westminster for the first time: Treeing Walker Coonhound (13 entries, Hound Group) and the Russell Terrier (15, Terrier Group). There are also 84 entries in Junior Showmanship. 40 Dog News

For 2013, entries have come from every state and Washington, D.C. For the third straight year, New York has the most with 287. California has 228, New Jersey 219 and Pennsylvania 210. There are 117 foreign entries, led by Canada with 104. Dogs are also entered from Brazil, Germany, Croatia, United Kingdom, France, Japan, and Mexico. Many other foreign-owned dogs are entered from U.S. addresses, and in the final compilation there will be additional foreign countries represented. Breeds and varieties in the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding Groups will be benched and judged at the Piers during the day on Monday, with Group competition that evening at the Garden. On Tuesday, breeds and varieties in the Sporting, Working and Terrier Groups will be benched and judged at the Piers and judging of those Groups will take place on Tuesday night, with judging of Best In Show, featuring all seven of the Group winners, to be held Tuesday evening at the Garden in the final event of the show. The complete judging schedule and entry is available on the Westminster website at www.westminsterkennelclub.org So, back will come the plywood benching and signs on the walls, allowing spectators to find a favorite breed or an individual dog that they want to see, up close and personal. The Westminster legacy of educating the public about purebred dogs and responsible ownership will come front and center once again. For driving directions, shuttle bus information, transportation options and parking, log on to the Westminster website.

WESTMINSTER TICKET INFORMATION

Two categories of tickets for the Show are available for purchase on The Westminster Kennel Club website (www. westminsterkennelclub.org). The Piers ticket is a full-day, general admission ticket priced at $25 that grants one day’s entrance to both Piers 92 and 94, including all benching and judging held at the venues. Tickets to The Piers may also be purchased at the door on the days of the Show. Madison Square Garden tickets, priced at $40 and $50 per evening, include reserved seating for the evening and access to the benching areas where daily Best of Breed winners will greet their fans.

A

gility hAs topped itself AgAin. The aKC National agility Championship has reached an all time high in entry of 1,385 dogs. This caused the staff to scramble and hire two more judges which brings the number to seven now, and expanded to six rings for the Tulsa, Oklahoma event on March 15-17, 2013. The facility can handle this size entry but not many other cities will be able to offer a good dirt surface to the exhibitors for this size entry. possibly the staff looked at the huge entry of this year when making the new requirements for next year. The new requirements are definitely more difficult to achieve. i can knowledgeably say that as i am trying to achieve those requirements with my Border Collie. i will have the privilege of being one of the

announcers for the second building during the Championships and look forward to seeing all the talented teams that will compete. in the past the 8� jumping class was smaller, but that is no longer the case now with over 240 entries. if i were to pin point a group that has improved the most, it is the small dog under the 11� shoulder height. The largest class is as usual, the 20� class at 440 and for the first time will cause them to be divided between two judges. This will be the third time that the Nationals will be held in Tulsa and the volunteer base is outstanding and it is very understandable for the return to Oklahoma. if had a wish granted it would be that the agility Nationals would once again be televised. it was filmed by animal planet for a number of years and then the funding for this was removed. i would think it would be advisable to bring agility back to the public eye based on the growth of CoNtiNueD oN page 122

Bite of the By Matthew H. Stander

NYC skyline photo by Damian Brandon/FreeDigitalPhotos.net

I

STARTED DOING THIS BITE OF THE APPLE way before social media and instant communication became de rigueur. It seems almost arrogant on my part to continue the BITE since today you can Google to your heart’s content and get more opinion about most everything from more people than at which one can shake a stick. Some of the opinions and blogs are good and some are downright awful and inaccurate. And since I really do not know that my opinion is any better or any worse than anyone else’s why I should continue on with this project I am not too certain. But for the fact that there are a hard core of you out there in the dog world who tell me that you really value and use some of these recommendations and thoughts so for those very few of you who have expressed such thoughts and those even fewer of you who have meant what you have told me here’s this year’s version of the BITE. Perhaps not as extensive, perhaps not as meaningful in this day and age but my thoughts anyways about what you might find interesting and good places to eat in the City of New York which I love and have adored lo these many years. And hopefully for those of you who have asked this 2013 BITE will be on our web site even before the issue goes to press thereby giving some of you the advantage of being able to make earlier reservations in those places which require them.

CLOSE TO THE GARDEN One presumes that most people will continue to stay in hotels closest to the Garden even with the shift of daytime judging to the Piers in the West ‘50’s. By far the most glamorous and perhaps grandest restaurant to open in the City is located just a short walk or cab ride from the Garden. I was so impressed with the food and atmosphere that I did a summer tiny BITE to recommend it. Located on Broadway and 28th Street at 1170 212-347-5660 ( our offices are 25th and Broadway 1115-so you know I hang out there when I can both afford it and have the time) I make THE NOMAD RESTAURANT in the NOMAD HOTEL to be THE PLACE to eat, enjoy and be seen at in New York City. Now then a few caveats--it is difficult to get a reservation in the evening but the bar is this glittering enticing structure held up by carved ma-

hogany elephants and a perfect place to dine. The restaurant is a series of rooms some large some small evoking a belle epoque house with the patrons reacting differently in each surrounding. The chef and co-owner is Daniel Humm of 11 MADISON a short five or so blocks away on Madison. To this day many consider 11 MADISON to have become one of the top restaurants in the City. But I’ll tell you something I like the food ever so much better at NOMAD than at 11 for a number of reasons. I find it and the atmosphere less precious and much less pretentious and Chef Humm has the food tasting more open with generous portions as opposed to those teeny tiny platters at 11. There are any number of eye catching courses but nothing compares to the Roast Chicken as eyes swivel for first time eaters there as it comes by.

And now about the Hotel itself-The 168-room property was designed in the ‘grand European tradition’. The check-in area is pictured here filled with rich materials like embroidered raw silk while the rooms have claw foot tubs pictured here next to antique writing tables. I easily picture Tori Steele staying here for one. Brand new and absolutely worth the visit and only steps from the Garden at 207 W. 36th Street bet 7th and 8th nearer to 7th is DELMONICO’S KITCHEN-212695-5220--An offshoot of the original Delmonico’s and a branch of the Delmonico’s on Beaver Street is this spanking new glamorous--perhaps a bit too glamorous-- steak house and restaurant open for lunch and dinner. If you get dumped at the Pier and want some solitude try here where the food is truly top notch. It’s restaurant week in NYC through Feb. 8 which means a 3 course luncheon is $25 and a three course dinner here only $35. Definitely the find of the area particularly if you’ve gotten a bit tired of the very prosaic but acceptable NICK & STEF’S Steakhouse which is very convenient for the Groups since it is so accessible. Not the kind of place to go to if you are not at the Garden but higher than average food in any event but given my druthers I’d go to Delmonico’s for the change of pace.

by Andrew Brace The Pros and Cons of Social Networking

There is no doubt that we are living in the age of social-networking and instant communication. The birth of Facebook and the like has given anyone who has access to a computer access to everyone similarly placed; invaluable in some eyes but intrusive in others.

I

n the run-up to our snowy Manchester weekend yet another dogrelated Facebook group appeared, set up by one Lisa Cowley, entitled “Dog Show Weather and Travel News UK”, certainly one of the most constructive groups which I have been invited to join. I was further most impressed by Lisa’s welcoming statement which simply said, “Welcome to Dog Show Weather and Travel News UK, a group for exactly what it says in the title so if you want to bitch, back stab, snipe, whine, moan and gossip this is NOT the group for you! If on the other hand you want to know what the weather and travel conditions are like going to and from shows in the UK then this IS the group for you. Remember it is up to YOU how you interpret the information in this group and only YOU can make the decision as to whether you travel or not :-)” I consulted the group page on an almost hourly basis when I was trying to work out whether a journey to Stafford was going to be feasible and found it extremely helpful. Amazingly, all group members seem to have diligently followed Lisa’s instructions and all comments and posts were restricted to weather and road conditions relevant to upcoming dog shows. All too often – especially it seems in the dog world – Facebook groups are set up with the best of intentions but very soon descend into an abyss of character assassinations and outrageous allegations when different opinions are forcibly expressed. I do hope that this group flourishes as it serves a very practical purpose, and that all members remain faithful to the cause. CoNtiNueD oN page 218 50 Dog News

Heelwork To

Music Teaching in Switzerland By Richard Curtis

A

t the end of lAst yeAr I flew to Switzerland to do some freestyle and heelwork to music teaching. I had been invited to teach by Claudia Moser, who is well known in dog dance as it is called over there. Claudia has set up a dog training hotel/retreat halfway up the side of a hill which has some beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. The venue was formerly a restaurant and hotel with various rooms within the main building as well as five chalets outside. The training room must have been the restaurant and although it’s not huge it has just enough space for five teams to work. From the day I arrived it didn’t stop snowing so it was very festive looking if a little cold. Luckily for me I was inside for all five days so the longest I was outside was when I had to walk from my chalet to the main building which took all of 30 seconds. To the Swiss the snow is nothing new and unlike people in the UK they get ready for it by changing their tires to winter ones plus the roads are cleared every CoNtiNueD oN page 222

aRe e coming! and the relaxation of many travel restrictions in Eastern Europe, not only has there been an influx of migrant workers into places like the UK from Poland and the former Soviet states but in more recent years the increase in dog exhibitors from such areas has become very noticeable. I mention this as a subject having had great experience in meeting Russian exhibitors at World and European shows from Paris to Denmark and from Slovenia to Stockholm and from Crufts to Croatia. These exhibitors are welcomed with open arms now by many European show organisers as the Russian entry can make the difference and turn a poor entry into a good one; such a thing happened at the European show in Bucharest, Romania last October, where a late influx of 1800 Russian exhibitors turned the show from a potential failure into a great success. Many of the Russians travel on buses, sometimes journeying long distances, sleeping en route on the bus and being away for a week or more. That’s dedication for you. In these days of globalisation and cross border social networking, people are of course generally

more aware of what is going on in other countries…the dog game is no exception. The great Crufts show to be held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham UK in March 2013 has just received a record entry of over 2000 dogs from beyond the shores of England, making up 10% of the overall total of 20,600; a far cry from the 5 that first came over in the mid nineties when quarantine was relaxed.

everal yearS ago I had the pleaSure of judgIng in a lovely area of Southern Brazil. Over the course of a long weekend two very attractive gentlemen added to the festivities. It is always an added pleasure in foreign lands if some of the other judges also speak English. It makes for a more interesting weekend when dogs can be discussed and the ideas on breeds from not just our viewpoint learned. I was fortunate to judge in Brazil with William Umanka and Werner Cepes from Costa Rica. These two gentlemen socially were great fun and very interesting to discuss all the different breeds with. About a year ago, I got an invitation to judge January 26th and 27th in San Jose and was so pleased I had the date available. I love judging and all Latin shows are a special treat for me. The shows can sometimes start late, end very late in the evening and dinners can last to the small hours of the morning, but the atmosphere is something rarely seen in the US today. Because of the shows being smaller, handlers usually only have to make it from one ring to the only other ring. It is also common if a handler is in one ring, the judge in the other ring waits until he can get in the ring. As a very young child, I remember when in the States judges could wait for a handler to arrive. In the States the vast majority leave a dog show as one of the losers. In so many Latin countries the majority of exhibitors go home as winners in some form. They have baby groups, puppy groups, junior groups and regular groups. With all the best in shows of different ages or nationality bred there could be five placements for each Best. Everyone stays for Best and they have enjoyed spending the long day or days at the dog show. Here in the States many exhibitors are leaving the show by 9 o’clock. Some do not even stay to see who wins the points or the breed. Benched shows did make people stay around and hopefully they learned more about their breed. Spending so much time leads to nice picnics

and a few alcoholic beverages being enjoyed with competitors. If you break lots of bread and consume quite a few bottles with a competitor you were sure to pick up why their dogs might be beating yours week after week. Even today at all the Latin shows successful breeders and exhibitors want to know the judge’s opinion of their dogs. Rankings in the rating systems have outpaced the American exhibitor showing for an opinion. When it came time to make arrangements for travel, I realized I did not know exactly where Costa Rica was located. Looking at the atlas I learned it was in Central America, south of Nicaragua and north of Panama. It is only 2,100 plus flying miles from New York. This actually makes it a shorter flight than flying from the East Coast to the West Coast. I departed from home early Thursday from zero temperatures and had felt like a prisoner for several days because of the frigid weather. What a sense of relief it was to arrive in San Jose to warm, balmy temperatures. A driver from the Radisson was awaiting my arrival with a very easy to spot sign with my name. In less than half an hour I was at the five star hotel situated in a very lovely, spacious room. After unpacking I enjoyed a lovely lunch in a very beautiful setting. Having only slept for two hours and some little sleep on the plane, I took a nap to be able to enjoy my first evening in San Jose. My hosts called to inform me that they would meet me and the other judge in the lobby at 8 o’clock. Shortly after eight my hosts and the lovely Ikuko Nagasako drove to a nearby Costa Rican restaurant. Ikuko Nagasako is a lovely Japanese lady, but has lived in Rio, Brazil for the last 30 years. It was an added bonus because of being educated in the States that English is a fluent language of Ikuko. At times it became helpful since she easily could translate Portuguese into English very quickly. A very relaxing meal was enjoyed by all. Friday morning a driver escorted us from the city to the rain forest of the mountains. Because of some traffic getting out of the city and rather provincial road, it was nearly a two hour ride. This gave us the opportunity to see the countryside of this beautiful country. Upon our arrival at the La Paz Waterfall Gardens, we enjoyed a zoo which was made up of all the birds and butterflies that were native to this area. It was interesting to learn that Hummingbirds can consume of to 6,000 calories per day and 50 pounds of sugar per month. All the different colors of the butterflies were so beautiful to see. After touring the zoo a very enjoyable lunch was available right there. After lunch a long walk through the forest gardens lead us into the famous water-

Remembering So many people know who she was. Many thought that they knew her well. Only a few of us knew the real JANE KAY.

JaneKay

By Margaret Curtis

B

ENEAth thE fEiStY gruff ExtEriOr was a heart of gold. her knowledge of dogs was without comparison. A conversation was an education and a lesson in history. She enjoyed sharing her experiences with others. She got such pleasure out of judging and would often give an exhibitor in her ring a handling tip to help the exhibit to be better presented. her Kayhill Dobermans established records, many of which are unbroken to this day. how she loved Kayhill’s Paint the town red. then there were her Chihuahuas who ruled the Doberman roost. then she got Bayard’s Yodytoo of Kayhill. She showed Yody to her championship and to several specialty wins including Best of Variety at the Chihuahua National Specialty in 2006. i didn’t understand her incredible elation with the win after her years of success. then came the reason. Yody was the first dog that she actually owned on which she earned these wins. how many of us thought that there was no possible new experience for Jane. Jane was neither a gourmet nor gourmand but she surely did like her peanut butter which she often ate with a spoon or out of an individual plastic packet. When the packets were being eliminated i (who loathe peanut butter) bought out four grocery stores and mailed 20+ cases of it to her in florida. She also enjoyed her gin and tonic (only with tanqueray) and taught bartenders around the world how to make them her way. No wonder that i named my top Clumber Spaniel bitch Clumbull tanqueray Jane. i have never had a more loyal friend. Over the past year+ i talked with her every day and each conversation ended with each of us saying, “i Love You”. Jane, i will always love you and never will a day go by that i don’t think of you.

I

retired from AT&T as President, Custom Manufacturing Services (CMS). I enjoyed a 27-year career with AT&T starting as an electrical engineer. I was promoted through a number of management positions in various locations culminating with being named President of one of only 23 business units in AT&T at the time. I founded this unit inside the Company and my team and I built CMS from initial sales of $15 million to over $200 million with 900 employees, two factories, and nationally known customers to become a profitable business unit of AT&T. As President I had responsibility for every part of the enterprise including finance, human resources, strategic planning, information systems, labor relations, sales and marketing, product management, logistics, product engineering, manufacturing, material management, process and test engineering, quality control, and public relations. In addition, I have had experience with mergers and acquisitions working closely with AT&T’s M&A organization to evaluate strategic alternatives for my business unit. I am currently President and majority owner of Ann Crittenden, Inc. Ann Crittenden, Inc owns and operates Hallmark Gold Crown Card Shops in Greensboro, Salisbury, Asheboro, Concord, and Charlotte, North Carolina. My partners and I have built this business from a single store into a 13 store chain recognized as one of the top chains in the country. In addition to my business experience I have always been committed to service to non-profits where I have served on 9 Boards of Directors and been the Chairperson of 6. My “dog” experience includes Treasurer of 4 Clubs, Show Chair for 3 Clubs, Cluster Chair, Delegate for 24 years representing the United States Kerry Blue Terrier Club and a founding member of the Carolina Terrier Association. I believe my diverse executive background in both large and small business, non-profit experience coupled with my academic credentials (BS in Electrical Engineering, Masters of Science in Business Administration, and Certificate in Strategic Planning from MIT) uniquely qualify me to be effective as a director of the American Kennel Club.

I

began my experience with pure-bred dogs in 1967 with an Old English Sheepdog. A few OES later, I came across a non-recognized breed – the Bearded Collie – in which I became very interested. I joined the then fledgling Bearded Collie Club of America (1969) and soon became very active, being elected as its Treasurer in 1970. I took over as President in 1972, and set about gaining AKC recognition for the breed. In those days, with Bill Stifel as Executive Secretary, breed recognition was a difficult and arduous task. I led the club through breed recognition and ultimately licensing for the first Specialty Show. In addition, I co-authored the current AKC Standard for the breed. I have since served the Club as a board member on and off through the years. I am an honorary lifetime member of the Bearded Collie Club of America and the Minuteman Bearded Collie Club. I served as Delegate for the Farmington Valley Kennel Club from 1974 and through 1976, when I became Delegate for the Springfield Kennel Club. I have served in that capacity since then. I was President of the Springfield Kennel Club from 1972 through 1976. I also served as Treasurer of the American Bouvier des Flandres Club for three years. I am currently a member of the Siberian Husky Club of America, the Bearded Collie Club of America, the Springfield Kennel Club, the Eaastern Dog Club, and the Connecticut River Working Group Association. I am an honorary Captain in the First Company Governor’s Foot Guard (of Connecticut) and serve as Chief Steward for their shows. CoNtiNueD oN page 268 Dog News 69


T

he long awaiTed Kennel Club worKing parTy, seT up to carry out a review of coat-testing,

has now recommended that some chalk, and hair spray should be allowed. The random selection of dogs was highly controversial amongst exhibitors. More so, in the fact that it seemed more ‘high profile’ exhibitors found themselves being taken away for samples to be taken. In our case we have been tested about 6 times now, random? I don’t think so!! In each case our samples were clear. Would we be stupid enough to use something, knowing full well the chances were quite high if we were to be selected?? Also the working party concluded that, on the basis of its review and the results of some initial scientific studies, that the procedure is ‘suitably robust and that there is a reliable basis upon which to rebut claims that the possibility of cross-contamination invalidates the procedure’. Well l am no scientist, but if you are standing next to a person, using huge amounts of hair spray, then the chances are that an awful lot of it will come onto your dog as well. Of course we are not told, what ‘amounts’ are needed to give a positive result. To my mind, this is a minefield, and as such, has caused an awful lot of bad feeling amongst exhibitors. Of course as usual the Kennel Club picks on the ‘white’ breeds first, because obviously if you are white you ‘must’ use something to get them white. The poor old Poodle exhibitor is picked on because everyone knows that the breed uses some spray to frame the top-knot. Maybe they should think about other ‘colored’ breeds as well, that seems to have not occurred to them, and that chalk does come in colors other than WHITE!!! As it stands at this moment in time, random coattesting remains suspended while further investigation takes place ahead of this year’s AGM. One of the most famous dogs to come to the UK in recent years is of course ‘Yogi’ the Hungarian Vizsla from Australia. l am sad to report that he has died just two weeks short of his tenth birthday. He was Britain’s top best in show winner of all time. To give him his full title, he is show Ch/ Australian Ch Hungargunn Bear It’n Mind. He was bred in New South Wales, by Naomi Cragg in 2002. On a judging trip to Oz in 2004, he was first seen by John Thirlwell, and the next day Moray Armstrong obviously agreed with John by awarding him the gundog group. After a lot of negotiations, and persuasion, Naomi allowed Yogi to come to the UK to be campaigned. In 2010 he secured his 17th best in show, smashing the previous record that had been held for 70 years by one of the famous Heather Scottish Terriers. His final show was at Crufts in the same year and he went all the way to best in show. I was delighted to have given him one of his best in shows which was at The Scottish Kennel Club in 2007. He was twice ‘Dog of the Year’, and has sired 18 UK titleholders. He was quite a boy!! So with Christmas very nearly with us it was the last general championship show of the year. The Ladies Kennel Club, better known as the LKA, has always had a great atmosphere. With just a

week to go before the celebrations, everyone was in a party mood. In days gone by, every breed would have its own party close to the benches. Tables full of all kinds of food and drinks and everyone would have a great time, win/draw or lose, it didn’t matter. But then the spoil-sports at the National Exhibition Centre, the same venue as Crufts, put a stop to it, as their own food concessions were not doing so well. But even so people still enjoy themselves and there is a lot of Christmas card swapping and celebrations, though a little muted. But it’s well liked by exhibitors as the entry testifies. For the last two years it has drawn, apart from obviously Crufts, the top entry of the year, quite something when you consider that not every breed has cc’s allocated to this show. Rather crazy in my view. This year there were 11,267 dogs, with Goldens having the top entry of 261 dogs. Intrepid travelers had also come from Czech Republic, Norway and Belgium. Gordon Setters are one of Britain’s oldest show breed-indeed a black and tan setter was one of the winners at the first ever recorded dog show in 1959. Yet amazingly no Gordon had ever won best in show at a UK all-breeds championship, that was until this show, where the judge was Ken Sinclair of the famous Araki Tibetan Terrier kennel and breeder of course of the famous Ch Araki Fabulous Willie, best in show at Crufts. Ken also co-bred the Beagle ‘Ada’ owned by co-writer Andrew Brace. The history-maker was Show Ch Hernwood Talladega Racer, handled by Claire Lewis and co-owned with his breeders Christine and Pete Sandford. He is a mixture of American, Canadian and UK lines. His sire is Hernwood Delaware Diamond whose dam, Sh Ch/ Am Ch Greenglen’s Glass Chime at Hernwood, was imported in whelp. Ken’s choice for reserve was The Tebbutt’s Irish Wolfhound Ch Caredig Delilah, her win at this level. Other group winners included the Smooth Ch Ch Copymear Celebration, the Westie Ch Peppabby Prank, the Akita Ch Dykebar Revenge Is Sweet, the Tervuren Hawkesflight Made in Style for Bellpins and from the Czech Republic the Alaskan Malamute International Ch Rasta-Man Shamanrock. As everyone left the show with Christmas wishes to everyone, some reflected on the year past, and what would 2013 bring to us all? CoNtiNueD oN page 244

Speaks

Let’s Set The Record Straight By Luis Aizcorbe

I

can be counted among a large group of poodle fanciers that were disappointed after reading the article about the PCA NATIONAL published in the 5/18/12 issue of Dog News, which was authored by Desi Murphy. As a report of this year’s PCA National, it missed the mark by a mile. Mr. Murphy takes us down memory lane selectively choosing some facts of Poodle history tied to his personal experience, while ignoring equal or greater accomplishments achieved by others during the last week of April, 2012. The article is incomplete, lacks objectivity and balance, and is unfair to several exhibitors. We are very aware of the accomplishments of our friends from abroad in our breed and the indelible mark they are leaving in PCA history. Last year I wrote an article for the AKC Gazette, which was later reprinted in Poodle Papers, on this subject. The success of dogs with foreign connections at this year’s PCA is unquestionable and deserves to be documented, but those achieved by home-bred and owned entries at this show deserve equal recognition. I would venture to say that with the exception of the Winners Dog in Standards, no award from Reserve Winners through Select garnered by any entry bred and owned in this country was mentioned in Mr. Murphy’s article. Given Mr. Murphy’s interest in the international show scene, I find the foreign slant given to his article less than surprising. After reading his report, I find it equally noteworthy how impressed Mr. Murphy appears to be with high profile people connected with this breed, as lesser wins by people in the “list” got the most ink. It was puzzling that several people that judged PCA fifty ,forty and thirty some years ago are mentioned in this article, but three of the four judges who adjudicated the 2012 show, on which the report is based, are ignored. It is outright disrespectful and brings to mind the report on the 2002 PCA National which omitted the name of the Best of Breed judge. The current report also contains information which is of no relevance to most Poodle people in the present day, such

74 Dog News

as references to Mrs. Quigley’s Pekes and the Mayfair Yorkies, among others. Standards is the only Variety substantially reported on in the article, but even here there are errors and misleading information. When Mr. Murphy mentions that Winners Bitch was between two exhibits owned by Zuleika Borges de Torrealba, one is led to believe that one went Winners and the other one Reserve. In reality Dennis awarded the Reserve to a bitch from Open shown by Kay Palade, and owned by Tanis Gardner. She was the only Standard Winner at this level that was not mentioned. Then, Mr. Murphy states that the “First” Award of Merit was given to CH. Alaman’s the Bees Knees “a sister” of the Best of Variety Winner. First, I was not aware that Awards of Merit were offered at PCA in order, such as First, Second, Third and so on. My understanding is that they are awarded in no specific order. Then Bees Knees is a “dog” not a bitch; a stallion of a dog at that. In another part of the article, Mr. Murphy goes on to state that Ch. Brighton Lakeridge Encore “has gone on to set the all-breed BIS record”. Two other Poodles owned by Mr. and Mrs. Sosnoff, Coleman and Yes, reached the 100 BIS milestone as have several others including four other Standards and another Toy, but at the time of this writing Ally has over 80 such wins so she has not set the BIS record for the breed; not yet, anyway. Mr. Murphy documents the unprecedented success that the Smash dogs have had in the PCA rings over the years, and rightly so, but the winners at this show are not individually recognized. I do not understand the logic behind mentioning by name a Toy that won the Variety ten years ago and not the one that earned a similar award at this show. Since Alexandra won three Varieties and a BIS at PCA Nationals in the late 90s, no dog of any variety has been equally recognized at this show except this year’s Miniature Variety winner, who won his third variety at a National after going BIS in 2009. Considering that in 2011, when he was not shown, his offspring won every major variety award, a case can be made that during the current century no other single dog of any variety has been equally honored at PCA Nationals. (There is no question that the great Mikimoto has had the greatest influence as a sire as he produced two BIS winners at PCA Nationals). What better opportunity could present itself to reference recent Poodle history in the making? Mr. Murphy chose not only to ignore history on this occasion, but also to ignore the actual win. The BOS from the classes this year was also awarded to an offspring of the Variety winner and the Winners Dog was also owned and co-bred by the co-owner of the Variety winner. All this is ignored in Mr. Murphy’s report. The only Miniature in this show mentioned by

him is the Best Puppy co-bred, co-owned and handled by Joseph Vergnetti; a prime example of biased reporting. By the tone of the article one has no alternative but to conclude that since the top Miniature winners come from well known American bloodlines with no foreign influences for generations, and neither their breeders nor owners have foreign connections nor are they high profile people, they fail to meet Mr. Murphy’s preferred criteria to qualify them for recognition in his article. Last year, when I was on the Board as Publicity Chairman, I wrote the PCA National Report as it fell within the scope of my responsibilities. I made a point of making the report objective, comprehensive and even handed regardless of my personal opinion about the judges’ decisions. I only regretted that after imposing on a number of club members to obtain information about the winners of all the performance events, they were left out of the published report, presumably due to lack of space. The article followed the mold of numerous reports of nationals of other breeds which I routinely read in the pages of DOG NEWS. In prior years the PCA National Report was written by Leslie Newing, and they were equally factual and well written. I do not know how the decision was made to allow the PCA National Report out of the club’s control, but this year’s article was nothing like others I have read in the same publication. It took the tone of a promotional, self serving article which failed to reflect the principles of dignity and fair competition that PCA is supposed to uphold. I trust that in the future, similar endeavors will be handled within the club in a factual, complete and accurate manner, regardless of who judges and who the winners are. If you want to read Desi Murphy’s article about the 2012 PCA National you can go to DOGNEWS.com. You’ll see the cover of their current issue, hit “complete issues on line”. Click “The Archives”. It may or may not show you ‘’The Archives” again. If it does, Click on “The Archives” again then go to the May 18th issue. It may take you directly to all the archive issues where you just Click on the May 18th issue. Once you go to the May 18th issue, Click expand and go to page 44. ED. NOTE: Certainly your stand is well stated and valid except you should be aware that Mr. Murphy was not asked to write an official report of PCA but merely his observations of the show. Normally someone from PCA is asked to and does submit an official report on behalf of the Club which for one reason or another did not occur this year.

A tlAntic O ce Winter Shows in Wildwood, New Jersey:

Bitter cold wind swept across the beach at Wildwood, New Jersey, in the last days of January. Galloping across the beach with it was a Welsh Springer Spaniel, her ears flapping, coat flying, and a big grin on her face. She swooped in close to the boardwalk where we were walking, paused, spotted some seagulls bravely navigating the gale, and charged off again, a beautiful red and white dog crossing the sand at full speed.

This year, the weather was not prohibitive. It snowed two nights, but not a lot, and the city officials were pretty good about clearing the parking lot and the streets. Harry Miller and his crew checked on all the motorhomes, making sure everything was working. There was just one mishap caused by the wind, when Corinne Witt lost power in her motorhome, which would be terrible at night with these below freezing temperatures. She’s showing a Great Dane and while it’s warm cuddling up with a big dog, Danes don’t have a lot of coat. After 44 years of breeding Great Danes, I can say that. But Doug Kish and Barbara Waldkirch gave her extra extension cords to make sure she and the dogs stayed warm. Great Dane people are good about helping each other out. We had a Great Dane Best in Show on Thursday when the black bitch, Scout, won. Doug Kish had a Best in Show on his Dane, Seamus, two weeks ago in Maryland but this weekend was Best Opposite. That’s the way it goes in dog shows. Great Dane people cheer each other on. Great Dane Bests in Show are not all that common. The first night, all the judges and a lot of dog show people hit the Lobster House Restaurant in Cape May. This restaurant is one of the big benefits of showing in Wildwood. It’s the best restaurant that’s open in the off-season. It’s right on the dock and the commercial fishing fleet pulls up and unloads right there.

But the building was battered during Superstorm Sandy. They got hit hard and the restaurant was closed for months for renovations. It wasn’t crowded because not many people knew it had reopened. We ate at the Lobster House two nights. Thursday, the five stewards had our own table, Priscilla Gabosch, Mary Lou Parrish, Audrey Wright, Joan Church and me. There were dog show people all around us.

F

riday night, I made plans to take Corinne Witt and Doug Kish there. Barbara Waldkirch said she and Ken Rayner would be going out with some clients. Then, at the last minute, Barbara asked me to add all of them to my table! This is the kind of thing that happens all the time, you start with two people and all of a sudden there are 10! I don’t know how to invite just one person. I had tons of people around all the years my kids were growing up and now there are always tons of dog show people around. I worked on the Lobster House people and got them to accommodate us. They always take my reservations. Not because they know me; because I pressure them. I lay guilt trips on them. It’s the ‘Jewish mother’ thing to do. They would rather give me what I want than listen to me harangue them on the phone. That’s my secret. We had a great time. And we’re great tippers, so I’m sure they didn’t mind. This year we stayed at a hotel called the Blue Palms. We couldn’t get back into our usual hotels, the Starlux and the Esplanade, because both of them are still completely booked with people whose houses were destroyed in Sandy. That brings you up against reality. We would really like to have those hotel rooms, but these people lost their homes and everything they owned. The Blue Palms were accommodating. We don’t need luxury living. We only go there to sleep and bathe. But one of the biggest problems was -- bunk beds! We’re a bunch of old broads. To get us up into bunk beds is a problem.

Modern Canaan Dogs retain many of the traits that helped them survive for over four millennia

By Richard Vulliet DVM

C

anaan Dogs are one of the few pure breD Dogs designed exclusively by Nature. Their size and physical appearance, as well as behavior, have been proven for survival in real-life field trials. Each trait was carefully tested by natural selection for benefit and the Canaan Dog is the pinnacle of this selection. The durability of their genetic make-up is proven by the fact that free ranging Canaan Dogs have retained their appearance as a Spitz-type dog for millennia. It is likely that any dog designed by nature for desert living will look like a Canaan Dog. In the 2,000+ years that Canaan Dogs roamed the deserts of the middle-east, multiple genetic traits entered the Canaan Dog gene pool from

migrating African, Asian and European dogs and were tested for survival advantages. If one compares the body of a CD with other desert surviving dogs, such as a Basenji or an Australian Dingo dog, there is much similarity. This is true even in cases where there was probably no exchange of genetic information. The reason for the similarity in body type and size is they were optimized for survival under similar environmental conditions. Canaan Dog owners did not get to pick how we wanted our dogs to look; yet we appreciate and enjoy them for who they are. These Spitz-type dogs have survived countless wars, the Crusades and the birth of the three major religions. They have enjoyed an on again/off again association with man since prebiblical times. In the Torah, the Bible, or the Koran, when Moses or Jesus hears the sound of a barking dog, the dog was probably a Canaan Dog. Their main function in historic times was to serve either as a guard or herding dog. Historical artifacts from the middle-east picture dogs that appear very much like modern day Canaan Dogs. The tombs of Ben Hassan (approximately 2000-2200 BC) contain drawings that look like the Canaan Dogs of today. In Ashkelon, near modern day Tel Aviv, a graveyard was discovered that contained the bodies of 700 dogs dating back to the middle of the fifth century BC. These dogs were carefully positioned on their sides with their legs flexed and tails curled around their hind legs, suggesting that they were interred with a great deal of care and affection. This suggests that these dogs were held in high regard. These dogs also had a strong similarity to the modern day Canaan Dog. Prior to 1930’s, CDs primarily survived in the Negev desert and surrounding areas as feral dogs after the diaspora. The modern Canaan Dog was not selectively bred until CoNtiNueD oN page 250

(Strong & Free) A Canadian Year In Review

Ah, the True North, definitely a winter wonderland this year. Mother Nature has not forgotten us. After several years of mild winters and smaller accumulations of snow than average the majority of Canada has been hit with a true blast of winter.

February: But what a difference a month makes. With all of Canada’s best from across the country making the yearly migration to New York City for Westminster KC things begin to heat up. The death of Whitney Houston shocks us all. At the Garden the shocks continue as the #1 Dog of All breeds in the US as well as the AKC/Eukanuba winner from 2011 both fall in the breed rings to Canadian canines. Things heat up in the North as well as the top dog race begins to take shape. Indeed 5 of the top dogs by the end of February would remain top dogs by the end of 2012. as we light the fires and batten down our homes it is time to reflect on 2012 and the year that it was. January: January starts with a small number of shows spread out amongst several provinces in the second largest country in the world. This accounts for the top dogs being a mixed lot that by year’s end are not in the running. By the end of 2012 only 2 dogs that were in the top 10 of all breeds at the end of January remain.

March: March comes in like a lamb with the launch of the new Apple Ipad 3 and goes out like a lion as the new board of the Canadian Kennel Club holds the annual general meeting to record attendance in Sudbury, Ontario. We lose long time Canadian dog ladies Meghan Nutbeem and Catheryn Debruyne, both of whom had served on the board of the CKC in past years.

Walking The Straight Line

I

n today’s dog world, partIcularly In our current political environment, it’s sometimes hard to walk that straight line. Especially when you see those subpar registry breeders placing the same value on their pups, as do the more prestigious registries’ breeders, such as the AKC. When you see so-called not for profit dog activist organizations placing a priority on revenue over the dog care. Or, when you see a person, group, or organization attempting to influence legislators in favor of one particular interest or issue. Have you ever attempted to walk in a straight line while looking at your feet? Try this on the beach sometime so you can look back at your footprints. You’ll probably be surprised at how crooked the path is. But fix your eyes upon something far away, and each step will point in the desired direction—toward that distant focal point. Is your life like this, in today’s dog world? Yes, frustrations can come at you from all sides from disgruntled customers and breeders, to misguided governmental laws, to dog activist groups. However, if we set the right sensible goals then our decisions, actions, and thoughts will lead to the desired end. On the other hand, if we bumble along in a “dog’s life” with no specific aims, we will wander and waste much precious time and energy. You probably know the feeling well, that noisy co-owner of yours driving you nuts with all that constant bickering. Or perhaps it’s a kennel helper who can never get it right. Or maybe it’s just that added demand from an unreasonable puppy buyer. So, all of a sudden you lose it and explode in anger and frustration, in front of that innocent bystander.

All In The Family by Charles C. Robey

We’ve all been there and done that, at some time in our life. And, tension seems to be running high in the dog world these days. Especially in the administration and management positions, of the various kennel clubs, the delegate circles, and even up to and including the Board of Directors’ activities, as fewer people take on more responsibility, often with less pay. However, please remember, more dog related friendships have been damaged from negative emotion than any other single factor. Especially in the co-ownership relationships. For example, how many times have you heard this in the dog world, “If you and I don’t settle on this dog contract, you will not be able to communicate with me, and I won’t be able to communicate with you.” Simply put, we must learn to control our emotions and not let these negative feelings “hijack” our reasoning. Here are a few points to ponder to help walk that dog world straight line: • DON’T OVERREACT- Catching yourself before you reach the breaking point is the best way to avoid a meltdown. The first thing you say may very likely be the worst thing you could have said. And, you will never be able to take the remarks back. This suggestion works very well in the show ring, if you know what I mean. • DON’T IGNORE THE SIGNS- The worst thing to do, when you start feeling furious, is try to put a lid on it. Controlling anger isn’t releasing it. One expert once said, “It’s like a tea pot”. Psychologically, what happens is if you’re really upset with someone, and don’t express it in a way that helps let it out, it will grow until you really get upset over the least trivial matter. So, politely let those frustrations out when your dog buying customer tries your patience, as will happen sooner or later. • GET OUT OF DODGE- One way to prevent an absolute meltdown is to temporarily move away from the stressful situation. It’s OK to tell the person, who has caused the problem, that you both need time to cool off. If your kennel help has frustrated you, then go to your house and have a nice cup of hot “Long Island tea”. You may choose to exercise that favorite dog, CoNtiNueD oN page 266

Off LEASH

elcome to NeW York, home of Dog NeWs, the Westminster Kennel Club, the American Kennel Club and its increasingly important Government Relations Department. While fanciers descend upon the Big Apple with intentions of party hopping and availing themselves of every imaginable type of entertainment and cuisine at all hours of the day and night between shuttling back and forth from the specialties across the Hudson River to the breed judging at the Piers to group judging at Madison Square Garden, the World’s Most Famous Arena, they can rest assured knowing that the AKC’s GR Department will be tracking legislation that threatens to impede their ability to breed, own and show dogs responsibly. Then again, ‘rest’ may not be the best word. Fanciers need to remain vigilant despite the exhaustion that’s sure to set in during the worldwind week of Westminster related activities. Whether it’s due to it being a new year with new legislative sessions, or perhaps it’s been timed to coincide when dog fanciers may be distracted by all the goings-on surrounding the Big ‘W’, there has been a flurry of canine legislation activity all across the nation on a whole range of issues that may impede the ability to carry on dog shows and breeding programs. It makes one wonder what type of opposition the founding fathers of Westminster encountered lo those many years ago when they were meeting in a midtown hotel in 1876 planning the inaugural show in 1877. Since dog breeders have been assembling to compare stock there has been a faction of the public that has sought to prevent them from doing so. It speaks volumes to the strength, convictions and unity of fanciers that they have managed to prevail and protect their rights to own, breed and show dogs. To wit, the Westminster Kennel Club is the second oldest continuously running sporting event in the United States, second only to the Kentucky Derby, and dog ownership in the U.S. is at an all-time high, with over 70 million households in the country owning dogs. Despite the fact that there is power in numbers and a long, prestigious history of purebred dog breeding not only in the States but worldwide, and a greater understanding of the human-canine bond, there is a large number of individuals and some large, well-funded organizations that want to put an end to the practice. Those opposed to the thought of breeding purebred dogs fail to recognize the important role that the dog has played throughout history and its ever-changing role in an ever-changing society. From helping children to read to comforting soldiers suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to detecting everything from bombs to drugs to early stage cancer to predicting seizures in patients to being the eyes for the blind and the ears for the deaf and a companion to so many in need, can the importance of the role of the dog in society ever be denied? Simply put, the world is a better place with the dog in it and we must do all we can to ensure that the dog remains a part of it. We all must remain united in the fight to protect our rights to own, breed and show dogs and it’s a responsibility we cannot take lightly or pas-

sively. The Westminster spectacle should serve as an opportune moment to bring fellow ‘champions of the dog’ onboard in our mission. There are multiple issues fellow dog lovers around the country are up against this very week while their comrades are priming and primping their dogs for the Westminster spotlights. On a positive note, the Pennsylvania Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee heard a bill this week that would protect the rights of the sellers of purebred dogs while also providing recourse for purchasers if there are any significant health issues with the puppies involved in transactions. The changes include moving the timeline from 10 days to 14 days for a dog to be determined to be clinically ill or to have died from an illness that renders the dog unfit for purchase and changing the timeline from 30 days to 90 days for a dog to have died from a congenital or hereditary defect that renders it unfit for purchase. There are other reasonable clarifications on how a dog should be determined ‘unfit for purchase’ that will protect sellers from being subjected to lawsuits involving restitution for minor, treatable health issues or for situations disclosed in writing prior to the purchase, and also allows recourse for buyers who purchase a puppy that is severely ill or dies from an illness or defect that the puppy had prior to sale. It’s a commonsensical approach that deserves the support of all committee members, as well as sellers and purchasers of dogs.

ell certainly the members of the Kennel club voted Without one negative vote to accept the 12 Million pounds plus get a new, purpose built building to boot by selling the existing plot of land to British Land plc. for another spot lower down on Clarges Street. There were two or three abstentions I am told but I can tell you one thing as one of the few foreign members of TKC I happily voted to accept the basics of the offer along with 500 or more other Members who were there or who voted by absentee ballot. Now that the trustees have been given the authority to proceed the hardcore negotiations can begin. Candidly I was a bit concerned that some of the so-called hot heads within the KC Membership were going to cause trouble and oppose the proposal but fortunately that never did materialize which is totally confirmed by the lop-sided near unanimous vote of the Members. Pictured to the right is an artist’s proposal of the new KC building. Roz Kramer’s 2013 Director’s Questionnaire is printed in this week’s issue and I must say I thought Roz accomplished a great job both in what she asked and in getting the candidates to reply so frankly to her. But that’s a two-way street for sure since these Questionnaires depend upon the full cooperation of all the people running to be successful and without exception all seven candidates were acting in the best interests of the sport in answering her questions and appeared genuinely interested in being fully cooperative. I read the so-called Bios of the seven people and found that to my mind the most impressive were Messrs. Arnold and Wooding. The reason I say that is that in each of the other Bios (and this is based strictly upon my own knowledge or lack of same of the backgrounds of each person) important and critical pieces of information were missing, not-stated due to lack of

As to the answers themselves one person was particularly and unnecessarily verbose and another came off to me at any rate as not having the depth of knowledge nor the passion for the job that the others had. I did not necessarily overly agree or disagree with anyone person and I was disappointed with the candidate who decided not to answer the last question. Up to that point I thought he was one of the people who gave above ordinary answers. I think that based upon the answers CoNtiNueD oN page 258

IRVING’s ImpRessIoNs CoNtiNueD FRoM page 18

Many people in the dog fancy believe the same thing about the RSPCA’s very visible and very noisy campaign against pedigree dogs. They say that the main reason that they have caused a fuss about dog breeding and dog showing, is because they are interested in stirring up the general public so as to increase their funds from donations and that comments such as those reprinted above, will get the general public on its side and ready to give money. (Is this perhaps an accusation that could be leveled against HSUS as well?) During the House of Commons debate it became clear that views were polarised. Those in favour of the RSPCA and its causes were also mostly of an anti-hunting persuasion. They argued that the debate had been called by the pro foxhunting lobby who were angry at the work being done by the RSPCA firstly to get foxhunting banned and more recently to prevent the many hunts which still exist, from nowadays allegedly breaching the law. One MP even went as far as to say that the debate had been introduced because of the ‘malice and spite’ of the pro-hunting lobby. ANIMAL RIGHTS VERSUS ANIMAL WELFARE Some of those Members of Parliament who were against the RSPCA said that they thought that what had “previously been an animal welfare body had now turned into an animal rights body”. One even said that this was why he and many people who care about animal welfare could no longer support the RSPCA. He said that he previously supported the organization but now “wanted his RSPCA back”. Others said: “we must not turn a respected charity into a weapon of political campaigning”. That ‘animal rights’ and ‘political’ view of the RSPCA is also shared by a number of people in the dog fancy. By the end of the debate, which was like several debates in parliament, the discussion did not conclude with any action being taken. However there is no doubt that this was yet another step whereby the RSPCA’s ‘halo’ in the eyes of many of the British general public was tarnished just a little more by exposing yet more of its activities to closer public scrutiny. Many donors are asking themselves whether they are right to continue supporting the RSPCA until it concentrates more on its core objective - the welfare of animals – and less on its political and lobbying ambitions. HAIRSPRAY - ADVERSE PUBLIC REACTION The other subject for discussion this week is the degree of public reaction which has been caused by some national UK newspapers’ recent coverage of TKC’s announcement a few weeks ago that it is considering the possibility of allowing the “light use of hair spray to frame top knots in Poodles” and the permitting of “usage of block white chalk at shows.” Two national newspapers published fairly accurate and unbiased articles explaining the history of the ‘coat testing’ issue and mentioning the fuss that was created by the exhibitors of some breeds at the Kennel Club AGM in 2011 after regular coat testing for coat enhancing substances was extended to Crufts that year. The newspapers said such things as “Crufts is now changing its rules to allow dogs to be treated with ‘performance-enhancing’ items, such as hairspray. The break with tradition at the competition means that owners may use chalk to enhance the appearance of breeds which have white fur. Poodle hair can at last legitimately be tamed with hairspray.” They made some references to the fact that the UK was about to become a bit more like the USA in that respect. One of the papers the Mail newspaper went on to say: “TKC eventually agreed to suspend tests and promised to look at the 102 Dog News

aggrieved competitors’ arguments. It has now reported back and has sided with the revolutionaries, agreeing to allow the use of ‘block white chalk’ to brush dirt out of white dogs’ coats and the ‘light use of hairspray’ around a dog’s head and face. Chalk can be applied before the contest but must be brushed out before the dog is judged. Powder will, however, remain banned.” The report goes on to say “Traditionalists are angry, saying rules banning grooming products should not be changed and that competing dogs should be judged in as natural a state as possible.” All of that may seem to be a bit of a storm in a teacup in the eyes of American dog fanciers. ANTI– DOG SHOW PUBLIC REACTION However it is the almost universally negative reaction of the British general public to the rumoured relaxation of the rules which I believe American readers need to see. Hopefully this will help them to put into context some of the things that have gone on in the UK show scene recently. Hopefully they will help to clarify why TKC needs to be so careful if it is to succeed in maintaining dog showing in the UK as a positive force for good in the interests of dog welfare. Here are the first few comments that appeared on the papers’ websites: “Aren’t they supposed to be breeding dogs, not troweling makeup on them to cover their defects?” “If the general public stopped attending these shows, leaving it only to the sad pathetic owners and judges, it would soon close. A country of supposedly ‘dog lovers’.......those dog owners are doing it for themselves. Sad, sad people.” “The whole concept of Crufts is animal cruelty. They are preened, prodded, poked and made to look ridiculous. They are dogs not objects of vanity for their owners. I would not watch a Crufts show if it was the last one on earth. What I will watch is a dog in my local park, wet and muddy running around enjoying itself with its mates.” “The big difference is - the women who enter the Miss world competition do so by choice. These poor dogs have no choice but to be pampered and paraded before thousands just so their owners can boast and live out their ridiculous fantasies. All wrong. All of it.” “Crufts epitomises everything that is wrong with dog breeders. They care about winning, not the dogs. We know that because they don’t love imperfect or non-winning dogs. Dogs should be dogs - their hair doesn’t need spray, tin foil, dye or anything else. Let them run free and be real dogs.” “I once saw a three legged dog rounding sheep at a farm, it looked a lot happier than any of these dogs.” “Sad people....POOR dogs!” “How pathetic is this then?” “Given any thought about what that spray is doing to it’s EYES? Animal lovers? Mmmmm, really?” “So very wrong.” TREADING A FINE LINE Faced with such universally adverse reactions as these and with strong adversaries such as the RSPCA, TKC has to tread a very fine line here in the UK if it is to succeed in maintaining the argument that dog showing can be used as a lever for positive progress in dog welfare. And, even worse, some people would argue that to succeed it is not just a fine line that the KC’s General Committee (Board) has to negotiate – but rather a tight rope! We genuinely wish it well.

Dinner With The Lunch With PART 2

David Alexander & his ring steward

T

hat night we stayed in the Chimanimani area, at a rustic bed and breakfast called the Frog and Fern. The owners work with the RSPCA to foster and rehabilitate abandoned dogs. A beautiful German Shorthair bitch and a young Collie decided to hang out with us through most of the evening. Once again, we were glad to be in before dark. They do not admit people after the sun goes down. It is not safe for them to even go out to the gate. The roads are horrific! As in most places in Zimbabwe, they have to pay for water and services they do not get. Power is more off than on. If they do not haul water in daily, they do not have it. We were very conservative in showering and washing dishes. Our evenings were candle lit. It was cold at night, so we had a fire in the fire place and covered up with heavy quilts. Zimbabwe produces some excellent coffee, though that industry is troubled also. We had some great coffee in the morning, said goodbye to our good hearted hosts and their dogs, and drove off through the car-swallowing ruts toward Harare.

104 Dog News

As we got on the toll/show roads leading to the capitol of Harare (originally known as Salisbury) we encountered frequent police stops, but we could make somewhat more progress. In Harare, we stayed with a wonderful woman named Shirley Suter (Border Collies). Much of the time we were there, we had no electricity or water. Like everyone in Zimbabwe, Shirley lost everything including the land her house sits on, but is permitted to live in her home. She very kindly took care of us and 2 judges from South Africa. Another judge stayed nearby. We were lucky because Shirley had a reservoir tank so we had a tiny bit of water. The first night, I washed my hair and bathed in about 2� of water. Each morning, Shirley was generous with a good breakfast and her charming company. Each evening, we had dinner courtesy of Jean, Jennifer and Sheila (Pembroke Corgis). What few outside the country understand is that all these people and everyone else in the country had their life savings and all property taken overnight by the government. People who were comfortable or even rather well off woke up one morning and were totally destitute. There is no public money for pipes or roads (except in Barrow where the government officials are building homes the size of Hyatt hotels and the grace of prison complexes). Lunch with the Elephants Since David and I were not judging the first day, the club sent us off with Shirley to Imire (http://www.imire.org/). The good people at Imire are trying to preserve endangered animals and are working particularly to save the black rhino. They offer a wonderful B&B and tours of the preserve. We were able to get very close to elephant herds, giraffe, and black rhino. Even keeping them in herds and protected by guards with automatic weapons doesn’t always fully protect them from poachers, who kill the rare black rhino for their horns. A


Archbishop, The Elephants few years ago, after a devastating killing spree by poachers, one baby rhino survived by hiding in a hay stack. He is the source of Imire’s effort in regenerating the species. We stopped for a really nice lunch at a watering hole. A small herd of elephants came across the lake and joined us for lunch. Before they left to play and swim across the river, we were permitted to hand feed and pat them. We were thrilled. The Elephant Who Thinks She is a Buffalo We also met Nzou, an elephant, who was orphaned and raised by a Buffalo herd. She believes she is a Buffalo and she knows she is their leader.

Carolyn and David feeding Elephants

She has refused all advances by male elephants and she will kill any animal who challenges her authority to lead her herd. National Geographic has produced several programs about Imire, including one on Nzou. Elephants are amazing. Others have similarly joined other species adapting to their life style. Shirley drove us 2.5 hours each way to Imire and kept us enthralled with her stories of life in Africa and her diplomatic travels around the world. We loved it! One of the true bright spots of our trip! The Kennel Club of Harare shows were held in a pretty compound of reasonably well-kept grassy grounds surrounded by red brick buildings. Beautiful lavender flowers have grown over parts of the buildings, reaching to the roof tops. Toy specialties as well as the all-round show were held. There were a few Terriers, Hounds, Sporting and Herding dogs, but most were Toys. Most of the dogs are older and the dog people care less about winning than they do about getting together and talking with other dog people. We had beautiful warm weather. One of the few active breeders in the area produces some very good quality Labradors. A young Black Lab bitch was my Reserve BIS. My choice for Kennel Club of Harare Grounds and some of the Labs

For some reason I think it is rather charming and in a way, attractive, that a place in a group is available to anybody…and even if your dog is rather “amateurishly” presented and handled. Well, in the old days, there were more handlers dominating the scene, but they mainly operated in the Terrier Group. Another positive regarding Crufts is of course that you meet so many “old” friends from all over the world, many of them you got to know at that showand is still the only place you ever see them. Although keeping in touch by mail-or today- e mail. One of the negatives is of course the size of the venue, the number of spectators who normally pack the arena- so normally you will only be able to watch a small portion of what you had intended! What to me made Westminster special was the fact that this was the only show in America that would bring together the top dogs from the entire country- and that the size of the entire entry plus the rather strict time table enabled you to make a plan and move from ring to ring and watch most of what you were hoping for. The fact that all those middle of the road dogs are mostly eliminated doesn’t really bother me- even if you need the whole specter to really appreciate how good the good ones are! I am still seduced by the atmosphere of the show and that we get a chance to see all those beautiful dogs, so well trained and presented, handled by well dressed (in the majority of cases) people. To me this show represents an “upgrade” of all other events attended during the year, we’re all better dressed, we all behave better – and there is a festive atmosphere prevailing all the week, with all those events and award dinners included in the program. And again the thrill of seeing again friends from different parts of the world. I personally think that the Toy & Dachshund Specialties across the road at Pennsylvania are so enjoyable. The intimacy and lack of space reminds me of shows in days gone by. Just the sawdust on the floor missing! The third show in this category- is by no means third. The AKC show has a rather different profile, but what I personally, possibly due to my “mixed background”, appreciate is the International flavor and competitions involved. It is fascinating to watch dogs from different countries- in some cases with different standards- compete in the same ring. And also witness how small the world has become- the dog world even smaller.

The influence and success of people we hardly knew existed some years ago, from behind the old Iron Curtain, is certainly interesting and adding to the flavor. Both regarding presentation, handling and the quality of their exhibits... I have only attended the AKC /Eukanuba shows a handful of times, but I think it is great that the dogs coming over for the International Finals also have a chance to compete at “regular” shows during the weekend. It must be a huge task to organize this show, but whoever is in charge are doing a fantastic job. Judging at any of these events is a great honor and privilege for anybody, but for some reason- and maybe based on personal experiences: The toughest show to judge is Westminster. If you are in the center of the ring and look around- you will find hundreds of critical eyes belonging to experienced and reputable judges and breeders. Many of course of the opinion that they- not you- would have been a more qualified and deserving choice to officiate at this show… And if you’re lucky- you will have many, many opportunities and chances to explain- and in some cases, even defend, why you did whatever you did….. Maybe even for years to come…. This year we are all looking forward to Westminster in a different way: How is this “decentralized” set-up gonna work? Knowing the people in charge, I have no doubt: They will have done anything in their power to make it run smoothly. For us “grassroots” people the main problem seems to be getting taxis between the two venues… Norwegians like to walk, but this is probably a little too far? It is exciting that we this year again, for the first time in many years, might see a class dog winning Best in Show at Westminster! Even the fact that they have a chance to compete is in my book great! I still think it would add to the Westminster Buzz, if there were a chance for dogs from Europe, or any other part of the world, to compete without having qualified in the US. It has definitely made Crufts more exciting and interesting that TKC decided that breed winners at major shows in most countries were qualified for the show. So why not open the door and at least let the top dogs from each country compete for an entry?? If anybody 20 years ago had told me that it would ever be possible for dogs from outside the UK to enter the country without quarantine- and even compete at CruftsI would have put money on: It was never going to happen! If you had told me that the Iron Curtain would be eliminated and that for instance Russian dogs could compete at the show- I would have laughed in your face… So anything is possible! Or is it?

does this flight go to Atlanta, Phoenix, and then to Portland?” I politely ask. “Yes, that’s what the sign says and we are just about ready to start boarding,” Rolanda exclaims with clipped undertones of rudeness. As a result of my valued Gold flying-status, I am invited to board after First Class--- Zone One---and quickly locate my aisle, bulkhead seat, 4A. Having accidentally destroyed my E-book, recently, while on vacation, I quickly retrieve a hardcopy copy of Jeffery Deaver’s latest paperback novel, The XO, purchased while waiting to board. I reclaim it from my Man-bag before placing the bag in the overhead compartment. I do not buckle my seatbelt right away in anticipation of the arrival of the two other passengers seated in seats B and C. Within a minute or two a couple in their late-thirties, early-forties, board the plane, stopping next to my seat. I rise to let the two sit when the man says, “Hey, we are husband (Husband) and wife (Wife) and they did not seat us together. My seat is actually across the aisle, center seat. Would you mind giving your seat up so my wife can sit with me?” He asks in a rough, loud voice. Sweet Brown begins to surface and I suppress the urge to say, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”…but settle for…“Actually, due to the length of the flight, I would prefer to keep my aisle seat and not get crammed into the center seat. I’m sorry,” I say while pushing my nose into chapter one of The XO, not wanting any further discussion. Husband wastes no time in engaging the gentleman seated in seat 4C (window) as he boards, offering three cocktails in exchange for his seat. “Hell, I might have considered the move, if I had known we were negotiating $24.00 worth of soothing, mind-altering beverages. Husband and Wife take their seats. Wife sits in the middle and Husband takes the window seat. “I know why you did not want to give up your seat,” Husband remarks. Choosing not to reply, I simply peer from the top of XO in anticipation of Husband’s response. “It’s because you find Wife so good looking.” I say nothing. I raise the corners of my mouth, exhibiting the slightest grin and continue to read as the plane fills with the remaining passengers. The plane finally takes off, reaches cruising altitude, lands in Atlanta and Husband does not shut his mouth the entire time. I am forced to listen to Husband’s constant chatter: “We all need to run out and buy our guns while they are still available! Can you believe all this crap about gay marriage? I really think Obama is a queer! Our economy is going to hell and we are being run by a bunch of Communists, who are taking over our healthcare system. You know, I have completed a marathon and isn’t Wife beautiful? We used to live in Michigan and now we live in Louisville, Kentucky. Can you believe we have to travel from Louisville to Charlotte to Atlanta to Phoenix, and then to Portland?” I break my silence, “Actually, I can. And, by the way are you currently on medication for your high energy and need to talk all the time?” I politely ask, hoping this will shut him up. “You are so perceptive! Are you a doctor? I can’t believe you asked me that! Honey, can you believe it? I actually just started applying testosterone cream under my armpits and it is making my life so much better.” “That explains it,” I say and finish with---“Ain’t nobody got time for that!” under my breath. The flight from Atlanta to Phoenix is an intensified repeat of the one from Charlotte to Atlanta, and I silently pray Sweet Brown gives me the strength to survive the entire distance to Portland. We are offered the opportunity to deplane in Phoenix and Sweet Brown comes to my rescue sending Husband and Wife off the plane. I rise, stretch, and walk the distance of the plane while the cleaning crew boards, prepping the plane for yet an-

other---and hopefully last--- departure before arriving in Portland. After thirty minutes, passengers begin to board and I am relieved not see Husband and Wife, silently praying they have been detained by security. A gentleman, appearing to be in his early to mid-fifties, attempts to enter my row and take his window seat, formerly occupied by Husband. “Sir, I am going to warn you that Husband and Wife will be boarding shortly and they have been sitting in these two seats for the past twelve hours. They were not originally booked together, but Husband has negotiated with two other passengers to switch their seat with his center seat, 4E. He is buying them drinks as an incentive.” “The gentleman, looking a bit perplexed, replies, “OK, how many drinks did he offer?” “Three, but I am sure you could shoot for four and throw in a snack-box,” I offer. Husband and Wife appear loaded with bags of MacDonald’s food. Gentleman negotiates four drink tickets and takes his new seat 4E, while a tall, thick, muscular, black man (Big Man), following directly behind Husband, takes the seat directly behind me. I take comfort in the possibility that Sweet Brown actually may have strategically positioned Big Man close to my seat in an attempt to buffer the loathsome, reactionary hate that continues to spew from Husband’s mouth. Other than the ten minutes or so while Husband and Wife noisily inhaled their Big Macs and fries, I do everything I can to maintain control during the last flight. I half expect Big Man to rise to the occasion and take Husband OUT, but then realize that his Bose earphones are providing sweet sounds of comfort, while I endure pain and suffering.

W

e land in Portland and Proceed to our arrival gate after a fourteen-hour and twenty minute trip from hell. “Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to Portland where the local time is 5:26 PM. Please stay in your seat while we taxi. It is now safe to use your cellular phones. We know you have a choice and we thank you for choosing USAIR,” a female voice announces through the PA system. I am not able to activate DROID and let DOT know of my arrival, as it remains in my Man-bag in the overhead storage bin. There is a flurry of activity as those surrounding me eagerly activate their hand-held communication devices. Big Man’s phone rings from behind my head with the sounds of (I swear this happened!)--- Sweet Brown. “Ain’t nobody got time for that! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Ain’t nobody got time for that!” OMG! I laugh hysterically while collecting my belongings, comforted by the fact Sweet Brown was with me the entire flight, leaving Husband and Wife totally perplexed. While walking to baggage claim, DROID signals I have three new text messages. I check and all three are from DOT. “Please call when you arrive. I am still at the airport and I will give you a ride to the hotel. No need to take the shuttle.” DOT and I meet outside one of the many coffee shops, go downstairs, collect my black-ballistic-nylon-rolling-garment-bag and proceed to the host hotel in DOT’s rental car. Once checked in, DOT and I locate our room. DOT unloads two nice bottles of cabernet, cheese, crackers and her infamous CPAP machine for her breathing pleasure. “DOT you take the bed closest to the window as there is an outlet for your machine next to the bed,” I say. “Also, we need to phone JVegas, make dinner arrangements, and plan on an early night, as I am fried.” I phone JVegas and within in minutes he arrives at our hotel room door. The three of us enjoy a glass of wine before going to Top Thai Kitchen restaurant CoNtiNueD oN page 114

for dinner. It’s a small place located on North Marine Drive. DOT and I discovered it two years ago when I was judging at the same location. There are only two tables for dining and the bulk of their business is for carryout. From the road, Top Thai Kitchen looks like a shack that no one dare enter….like an abandoned 1950’s Dairy Queen, as it were. Once inside, you are pleasantly greeted and even more pleasantly served the best Thai food I have ever eaten. The three of us spend two hours laughing, sharing dog show stories, eating great food, all while sipping on Thai Iced Tea. We are the last customers of the evening. Owner/chef, Paul, quietly begins late-night cleaning, signaling it is time for us to retreat and get a good night’s rest before tomorrow’s judging.

B

ack in the hotel, i use the Bathroom first and prepare for bed. DOT organizes her CPAP machine, her materials for tomorrow’s ring observations and enters the bathroom. I turn out the lights on my side of the room, flip on my stomach and cover my head with the pillow, giving DOT her needed privacy, while she crawls under the covers and places the Silence-of-the-Lamb’s-looking device over her head and onto her face. I am conditioned by the low humming sound of the machine by now and find comfort in the white noise. I toss and turn to CPAP’s rhythmic noise. At 1:45 AM the noise intensifies and for the next two and one-half hours DOT’s breathing labors, sounding more like the suction from my new Dyson Ball for Animals vacuum than a medical device. I attempt to remain calm. I cover my head with two pillows---nothing works. At 4:15, I cannot take it anymore. “DOT! DOT!” I shout. “What is it…what is it?” DOT blurts out from a deep sleep, springing from the bed with CPAP dangling from her neck in nothing more than a simple sleep shirt and skimpy panties---barely covering her rather large, Rubenesque derrière. Still half asleep and completely unaware that her massive buttocks are pointed directly into my face, she bends over and frees herself from the entangled CPAP machine, securing it back onto her head. I, on the other hand, very much awake, cannot shake the forced vision from my head, finding little comfort in knowing that DOT is back sleeping soundly. I exit from the far left side of my bed, use the bathroom, brush my teeth, take a low-dose aspirin and mumble in the mirror, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!!!” At 5:30 AM, I brew a small pot of coffee, make DOT a cup of hot tea and directly deliver it to her in bed (fearful that she may attempt to crawl out from under the covers), iron my clothes and dress in anticipation of boarding the 7:00 AM shuttle to the dog show. DOT and I exit the hotel room and gather in the Main Lobby area of the hotel, along with an array of quality colleagues (JP, PBM, DR.GM-J, DR.BI, RandyG, DB, DR.JR-N and others). It is clear that Patti Strand, Joan Savage, Jim and Kathy Corbett, John Rowton, Lisa Dupre and many other members of the Rose City Classic Dog Shows have, once again, excelled in putting together a great team of judges and, from what I have already experienced, a five-star dog show weekend. We enter the massive exhibition hall. Ms. JA, recruited by club

members, greets us upon our arrival with a streak of bright purple in her hair (very Portland) and escorts us to hospitality for breakfast. I quickly change my new favorite catchphrase from, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” to “I got time for that!” and sit down to the best dog show judges’ breakfast I have ever eaten. My dog judging morning begins in ring two with a wonderful entry of assorted breeds-everything from the Pug to the Rough Collie. The day is remarkable. I normally only require one, or maybe even a .5 memorable hands-on judging-experience to make the weekend. On the first day of the Rose City Classic Dog Show Weekend, I experience no fewer than five pure magical moments. I thank my ring steward, and begin the short journey to the Superintendent’s station, to return my judge’s book. Along the way positive energy flows in every direction. The AKC booth is filled with quality information and items for sale and I find it extremely hard to resist the smiling faces of MBO and BARBO. I wave and quicken my pace, blowing a kiss in the direction of KC who is sending announcements through the building over the PA system. Directly next door to KC’s announcing station sits the wonderful Onofrio team. I hand over my judge’s book, and proceed to the Take the Lead booth to buy raffle tickets. I purchase $50.00 worth of tickets, distributing those tickets between three bags hanging underneath a Kindle Fire, a large bottle of Argyle Pinot Noir, and a basket filled with assorted chocolate items. I walk away from the Take the Lead booth savoring the taste of wine, while reading from my new Kindle Fire and find myself at the main ring for Friday’s Group and Best in Show judging. The Rose City Classic hospitality team, once again, does not disappoint, offering an array of culinary delights for the judges and spectators during the day’s final competition--“I got time for that!” I finish evaluating the Sporting Group breed winners, feeling good with the top four placements, and immediately move to the staging area for official photographs. Having become less shy and concerned with photographs in my old age, I hold each rosette with pride (directly in front of my ever-growing waistline) and smile with childish pride, for all to see. DOT meets me afterward and together we catch the shuttle back to the hotel. I prepare for the judges’ dinner and DOT chooses an alternative path, leaving me to my own devices. “Well I walked down those steps to the judges’ dinner to get me a cold beer, and then I thought somebody was barbacuin’ and I said Lord, Oh Jeee…zus, it’s one helluva nice time. I ran in, I didn’t grab no beer or nuthin’, Jesus. I ran for the bar, and ordered me sum fine wine. I got ‘cited and I had me the bestest time. I got time for that.” No, this is not your typical dog show judges’ dinner. The Rose City Classic Cluster goes all out, offering a full bar service, reserved seating in an elegant setting, and an endless array of food choices for my dining pleasure---“I got time for that.” And, the special evening finishes with a wonderful, creative, thought-provoking, dog-centered, mission-focused conversation with my friend PS. With the exception of early morning ice on the road, and the fear of DOT taking me down ass-end over teacups while escorting her into the show building with her arm entwined in mine, the second day of judging proves to be just as--- if not more---rewarding than the first. Early afternoon, I am informed that I am the winner of the Take the Lead Chocolate Basket. DOT and I collect the winnings and we are greeted by none other than PS. “Do you like chocolate?” I ask. “Are you joking? Of course I like chocolate,” PS responds. “Great--- this basket is for you. I have never been a real chocolate lover and you can share it with your fellow club members,” I add. “Perfect! How would the two of you like a tour of our show?” asks PS with quiet pride and enthusiasm. “I would love it,” I immediately say. “That sounds just wonderful,” follows DOT.

TAPS

MEMORAL MOMENTS WITH DAN ROSS, AKA “THE MAJOR”.

By M.J. Nelson

T

hree of us sTood aT aTTenTion as The lasT echoes of the third rifle volley reverberated through the bleak, snow-covered national cemetery and the bugler began to sound the first sad notes of the 24 that constitute “Taps.” We were there, two old sailors and one old marine in our dress blue uniforms, as representatives of the sea services to say good-bye to an old friend, fellow bird hunter and dog lover, hunt test judge, and former U.S. Marine Corps major who had not only served his country both honorably and well as a chopper pilot in Vietnam but had also been a guardian of wildlife as a conservation officer. As the weak January sun glinted off brass on shoulders, gold braid on sleeves and white gloves touching hat brims in salute, it took all the discipline instilled so long ago to hold that rigid pose without tearing up and recalling the many memories of Dan Ross, also known as “The Major,” with whom I had shared so many waterfowl hunts as well as a few pheasant hunts and quite a number of hunt test judging assignments. I have often said that it would be easy to fill an entire book with Ross and Code after a successful hunt. (Allen Heidebrink, photo)

Ross stories. Indeed, I have frequently written about this wild man who never appeared to take much of anything about hunting or dogs or dog training or judging dogs very seriously and seemed determined to extract every possible drop of fun out of every moment of every day. A superb raconteur, Ross—that’s what everyone called him except possibly his immediate family—also had an unsurpassed talent for misadventure and a flair for the dramatic whether it was afield or as a judge. As one example of his story-telling prowess, here is his description of a retrieve of a snow goose by Chief, one of my Chesapeakes. It was a beautiful retrieve of a crippled goose, brought about by the fact that in making a long and difficult shot, I had only managed to wing the bird. It was Ross’ contention that I hadn’t hit the goose at all. He said what actually happened was that its wingbone had snapped as a result of “bone fatigue.” Anyway, here is Ross’ description of the retrieve: “I’m going to request a name change for Chief to Tincan because when he spotted the goose, it was like a destroyer chasing a sub. ‘Radar to bridge’ ‘Bridge, aye’ ‘Target in sight’ ‘Bridge to paws, all ahead Ross, Code and frequent hunting partner and fellow conservation officer Allen Heidebrink following a Saskatchewan goose hunt.

flank.’ Just about the time he closed in on the target goose, it must have had its own set of orders which were probably something like ‘dive, dive, dive.’ This cat and mouse game of chase-and-dive went on for ten minutes. Tincan approaching and just about the time he got into position to make capture, no bird in sight. finally, he managed to sneak up on the goose to the point where when the bird recognized that Tincan was practically on top of him and dove, the dog demonstrated that in addition to being a destroyer, he was also part submarine, diving after the goose and catching it underwater. If you had been scoring the movie as Tincan came swimming back with his catch, you would have had the full symphonic brass and percussion sections playing Victory at Sea. Instead, all poor Tincan got was some crazy person jumping up and down screaming ‘Get in here.’ (for the record, while I will not try to deny the “crazy” part because when you look at who I was hunting with, it probably constitutes prima facia evidence of lunacy, I was not jumping up and down and I was telling Chief that he was the most wonderful dog ever. In fact, I was doing everything but strewing rose petals in his path.) But the Tincan did get his moment of triumph. When he got back to shore, it was just like the scene in Top Gun. ‘Chief to boss, permission to make a low pass.’ ‘Negative, Chief, permission denied. Get in...’ Vaarroooooom!!!!!!!!!!” During the years when I hunted with two pilots, Ross being one of them, it slowly began to dawn on me that these folks do not have a normal person’s view of the world. Standing on the edge of a dike in Saskatchewan with Ross, we watched a massive flock of snow geese come across the lake about 150 yards up. The formation was absolutely flawless and showed no signs of break-up until Ross solemnly intoned, “Snow goose lead, this is GCA (goose control approach?). Start descent lake zero four niner.” At precisely that moment, the perfect formation began to bear an astonishing resemblance to the Naval Air Training Command’s Saufley field when the base has issued a general recall because a thunderstorm blundered into the pattern. All ten thousand snow geese were trying to land at once while five thousand ducks that had taken off when they were disturbed by the arriving snow geese also attempted to land turning mere madness into a Chinese fire drill with near mid-air collisions and violent evasive actions the order of the day. Ross viewed the resulting chaos with a satisfied smirk and said, “See what happens when you don’t have proper clearance.” As for his talent for misadventure, Ross seemed to attract these situations like iron filings to a magnet. One time, judging a junior level hunt test for pointing breeds, the

horse assigned to him managed to do something that the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army had failed to do in his two tours as a MEDEVAC pilot during that war—make him eligible for a medal that had the word “purple” in its name. The wrangler, having gotten a look at Ross’ six foot, four inch frame, selected his largest horse and dropped both stirrups to their maximum. When Ross went to mount the horse, he asked the sour-faced wrangler what the horse’s name was. The wrangler’s reply, “Don’t got no name. Jes’ calls’m horse,” should have been a clue. If that wasn’t enough of an indication that this was not going to be a pleasant experience, when the wrangler said, “Horse,” Horse turned his head and gave both Ross and the wrangler the kind of baleful stare usually reserved for homicidal maniacs in Alfred Hitchcock movies. All was peaceful for about sixty seconds or until Ross discovered that the wrangler had vastly overestimated the length of one of his legs. The test secretary, recognizing Ross’ plight and wanting to move the start of the test along quickly, offered to shorten the stirrup without first having Ross dismount. When Ross removed his boot from the stirrup and the test secretary began to make the needed adjustment, all hell broke loose. Horse commenced rearing and plunging around the parking lot like a bronc too wild and mean to be included in “rank pen” at the National finals Rodeo. His wild gyrations took both horse and rider closer and closer to a small marsh area near the parking lot. finally, when they were deep in the marsh, Horse stopped and apparently gave up. Just about the time Ross was beginning to heave a sigh of relief that he’d managed to remain aboard, Horse drew out the final weapon in his bucking arsenal. He reared straight up and tumbled over backwards

causing Ross to, in his words, “Slide aft off the fantail.” Momentarily stunned he was unable to affect escape and evasion before Horse rolled over on him. The only thing that saved him from greater injury than having the wind seriously knocked out of him and the appearance of a vast number of rainbow-hued bruises covering a significant portion of his body was that Horse chose to perform his last trick in the muckiest part of the marsh. Ross was finally able to breathe, regain his feet and limp painfully out of the marsh covered in muck from head to toe. While a trip to the hospital emergency room was warranted because he was in a world of hurt and merely breathing was an agonizing experience, x-rays revealed nothing was broken. But, he still required considerable therapy in the form of a number of internal applications of single-malt scotch to soothe his aches and pains. At the local dog club’s annual banquet later that year, he was awarded the purple horseshoe in recognition of wounds sustained in support of the hunt test program. On a hunting trip, Code, one of Ross’ Chesapeakes, reminded him that it was not just ornery horses that were troublesome. Improperly restrained dogs could also create misadventures. Hunting along a creek, Ross sought both comfort and the ability to quickly get to his feet should the need to take a shot arise. To achieve these objectives, he set up a canvas director’s chair on the creek bank and since Code was an intense hunter who was not always steady to wing and shot, tethered the dog to the chair. At least two of his hunting partners commented that might not be the best way to restrain the dog but Ross pooh-poohed their concerns. for awhile all was calm and quiet on the duck front and it was reCoNtiNueD oN page 254

tail the various components of the spectacular Rose City Classic Cluster of Dog Shows. The details and events are truly impressive: My Dog Can Do That, Conformation, Puppy Competition, Breeders Veterinary Services, AKC Obedience and Rally, Agility– US Team Qualifier, Vendor Mall, Meet-The-Breeds, Purina Main Booth, AKC Booth, Non-Profit Booths, Take the Lead Booth, RCC Junior Handler of the Year, and my favorite---The RCC Annual Student Art Contest. I marvel at the student artwork from Oregon and Washington, ranging through various ages and categories. The theme for this year is, “If I were a dog, what breed would I be?” “Easy for me---a Golden Retriever,” I say to myself while watching an art teacher, with one of his winning students, share the joy and pride of having work displayed for all to see. Our tour finishes. DOT departs to observe a few more breeds, and I find one of many favorite AKC Representatives (AKCMD) hanging around the Group Ring. Instantly our conversation centers on the sport, various breeds of dogs, my weekend of judging, and exciting young dogs. I also take the opportunity to ask numerous questions about her own breed, focusing on the subtle breed specifics that I so seldom have the opportunity to discuss. “I got time for that!” Our conversation ends with a discussion of my breed---Golden Retrievers--- and I admire her willingness to ask, to clarify, and to confirm her already deep understanding. “Listen – I am judging Goldens tomorrow. Please, come over and watch. Ask any questions you would like and afterward, I would love to have a further discussion,” I share, feeling deep satisfaction that this is what the sport is all about. “Yes, indeed--- another great day thanks to RCC.”

s

unday, my last day of judging arrives, and yes… I am looking forward to judging my breed. It is a nice entry and knowing the numerous, dedicated breeders who live in the Pacific Northwest, I hope to find just the perfect match for my personal palette. AKCMD arrives at ringside and I am thrilled to see her. I work through the dog classes. There is a striking Open Dog, who is very much my style, oozing breed type and easy to point the finger to. The bitch classes are very nice with the Bred by Exhibitor Bitch and the Open Class winner taking my eye. They are very similar in style, not unlike my Winners Dog. I take my time in comparing the two, fully aware that they are from the same kennel and handled by lifelong partners. I choose the Open Bitch, for various reasons, to the disappointment of the partner showing the Bred by Bitch. “Wow--- how happy I would be if my partner and I won both Winners and Reserve at the same show, major entry, under a breeder judge.” Not! Bred By handler stoops, drops his head, and leaves the ring. “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” The Breed competition enters the ring and a young dog champion grabs my attention. Every inch my cup of tea. Style, beautiful proportions, strong outline, good on the move, gorgeous head and moderate---“Yes, my kind of dog.” I finish by giving him the Breed, the Winners Bitch Best of Winners and a lovely Bitch Best of Opposite Sex. Before heading to the podium for photos, AKCMD 118 Dog News

waits at the entrance of ring. We discuss the entry, share our thoughts and the rich experience, that I so dearly crave at dog shows, continues. With efficiency, I move through the photos quickly and return to the club table to pay my respects before departing for the airport. KC calls from the announcer’s platform to my right. “Michael, come here. What happened in Golden Retrievers? Everyone is talking about how AKCMD was at your ring going after you when you finished judging. They even came up to me wondering what was going on.” In an attempt to keep myself from falling to the floor in amazement, combined with wanting to knock a few heads together, I reply. “Well, actually it’s called ‘two dedicated individuals who respect one another having an animated and rewarding professional conversation about the breed standard, breed type and my life-long participation in the breed’. Perception vs. Reality and---“Ain’t nobody got time for that.” DOT returns, I gather my personal belongings. I say my goodbyes and head to the airport for my long journey from Portland to Phoenix to Philadelphia to Richmond. I activate DROID in the rental car as DOT drives. “Eleven new messages,” I say to myself. I click on the message from USAIR. “Upgrade Status---We are happy to inform you that your First Class Upgrade has been confirmed for Portland to Phoenix and Phoenix to Philly.” “I got time for that!” I say farewell to DOT, who is staying over an additional day. I check my luggage, I pass through security, and I wait patiently at the gate for the flight to depart. I watch the sign above the gate agent’s head read, “Portland, Phoenix, Philadelphia” and I cringe at the thought of sitting next to another Husband and Wife. “First Class. Only one extra seat next to me. How bad can it be?” The flight boards full. The gentleman sitting next to me is pleasant, respectful, and one of little conversation. “Perfect!” I think while adjusting my seatbelt, pillow, and blanket. But, in a matter of minutes, a loud, obnoxious, arrogant man enters the plane. “WOO HOO – YES, MY TEAM WON. It’s the best day of my life. I need a drink,” he announces to the entire First Class Cabin. “Oh, please!!!” I say to myself, in fear that he is going to take the seat directly behind mine. Sure enough, he grabs the back of my seat, sending my head springing forward, summons the flight attendant, and orders a glass of wine. Prior to takeoff, he informs the lady sitting next to him, in a voice the entire plane can hear, of his wonderful weekend---the best day of his life--- his purchase of two major companies---his father’s connection to the Roosevelt family, and his royal relatives--- all before takeoff. I try to place the pillow over my head in an attempt to muffle the noise, but nothing works. We reach altitude. The young man next to me rolls his eyes, taking comfort in placing headphones over his ears. I, on the other hand, continue to experience the pain. The man behind me has not shut his mouth for one second. It continues, “Yes, I only wish my wife would not be so frigid. I think she was raped as a child and that is why our sex life is so boring. Really, I am a man with needs. You understand don’t you?” he says to the woman sitting next to him, who seems to be enjoying his intoxicated attention. He continues, “My father was the CEO for Cunard Cruise Lines---Do you want to know how big my house is?--Can you believe I actually was at a party with a famous rock star (can’t mention his name) with a hooker and the house caught on fire!---I ran out without any clothes on and my wallet was burned in the fire.” “It’s a damned shame tha smoke did’nt get ya and give ya bronchitis. ain’t nobody got time for that,” I say, channeling Sweet Brown and taking comfort in knowing no one is going to spoil my trip home and tarnish my experience at one of, if not the most impressive dog show in the United States---The Rose City Classic Cluster of Dog Shows.

The Upside Of The Seesaw

CoNtiNueD FRoM page 42

the sport and the proven statistics that it is bringing in new dogs and definitely younger handlers into the realm of aKC. This also would be a good will fit to fight peTa and restrictive legislation since all the different breeds perform in the sport. it would be wonderful to have the same buzz about an agility televised program from aKC as the invitational or westminster. The agility Field Rep. meeting held in January made many decisions for the sport that should enhance it and clarify items that needed cleaning up. The reps meeting sets up the next important meeting for the sport which is the agility advisory Committee meeting in august. These are held every four years and this is the year. it surely will produce more classes and titles i would guess. it is interesting to note that agility has 56 different titles and that does not take into the consideration the multiples such as MaCh 2,3, etc. as chairman of the world Team Tryouts held on May 3-5, 2013 in Minnesota, i am working on a new format to accommodate the changes that are necessary for this year’s world agility Championship team selection. One of the changes is that now the tryouts are called the international Team Tryouts. The championships will be held in Johannesburg, south africa which will prevent an aKC sponsored team from being sent due to the high cost and risk of shipping a dog to africa. The number of inoculations required for africa will increase the vet costs to as much as $1,000.00 per dog. Transferring your dog on planes possibly three times becomes very questionable in the safety and health of a dog and that cost will equal what it would be for three dogs normally. individuals will have the option to go on their own dime, and there are already a number of handlers that are expressing interest in flying to the competition. They must qualify at the iTT. solutions are trying to be found for the fact that normally small dogs are not allowed on the planes

122 Dog News

to africa (understandable when the flight is so long). all dogs are to be shipped as cargo and would not be out of their crate for many hours. possibly some other solution will be found but none at this time. The south african agility team has been sponsored by Coca-Cola for several years and the competition will be held in the Coca-Cola dome. They are working jointly with the Kennel Union of south africa, a longtime FCi club. The answer to the problem of the Championships being held in africa is that aKC will change its sponsorship to a team for the summer version of world Championship. This will be held in Neeroeteren, Belgium, July 25-28, 2013 and is called the european Open. The 12 dogs will be aKC sponsored and handlers that make the team will have time for only one team practice at the end of June and it will be a fast sizing and ordering of uniforms for the team and booking of flights. Belgium is one of the easiest flights for dogs and handlers and much easier vet restrictions. The interesting side note for the european Open is that there will be spaces for another 20 dogs from the Usa to compete as we are allowed 30 teams. Those 20 handlers are on their own dime. This should prove either a help or a big distraction for the coach who has to keep all of these different factions either separate and/or work to make the 12 handlers a team with additional possibilities. Coach Nancy Gyes is the one that can handle it but i don’t envy the task ahead of her. For further information on the european Open competition go to: www.european-open-2013.jimdo.com; it is worth it to check out the site just to look at the pictures of the organizing committee running their dogs. Next year the world agility Championship will be held in Luxemburg. This small country was slated to host previously several years ago and opted out of the commitment very last minute. One can only hope that does not happen again. Germany graciously picked up the gauntlet and hosted that event. Luxemburg is a beautiful small country that would be a great trip for the supporters as they are right next to Germany and have many options for sightseeing.

WINE AND DINE STEAKHOUSE located on 10th Avenue between 37th and 38th Street in Hell’s Kitchen--485 10th Avenue to be exact-- where the iconic basketball player can be seen whilst they serve up some pretty good steaks in an up-to-date atmosphere. Worth a trip but me I’ll take SPARKS over it for sure to say nothing of my Brooklyn favorite PETER LUGER, which out classes anything to my mind for steaks. I would also suggest GAONNURI located on the 39th floor of an office building at 1250 Broadway (corner of 32nd street) for some of the best Korean barbecue and overall delicious food-212-971-9045--if you are an adventurous diner and want to experience incredibly good food with a great view try this newie only a block or two from the Garden and opened virtually 24/7. CLOSE BUT NOT QUITE AS CLOSE Also close to the MSG area is the ACE HOTEL and both the BRESLIN Bar and Restaurant on 26th and Broadway, where the JOHN DORY OYSTER BAR sits as well. This complex basically takes no reservations and appeals to a with-it--not necessarily youngish but certainly cool crowd. Food at both is delicious-Breslin leans to heavy pork dishes of all varieties whereas John Dory to seafood of the highest quality. Breslin has a Chef’s table of roasted suckling pig which must be ordered in advance for 10 or so people and if you try it I promise you will not be sorryspeaking of suckling pig the NOMAD prepares it as you will never forget it--something you will remember for a long time and for smaller parties it works just as well. Also a series of smaller boutique hotels have developed along Broadway in the mid 20’s with jazz bars and restaurants worth exploring. In our office building is the 40/40 Club owned by Jay Z which housed one of the Obama money raisers and is popular with the late crowd. Just two blocks further down at 200 5th is the extremely popular and busy EATALY

which is a restaurant food court melange of all sorts of places to go and do all day and all night too! Very active, beautiful people from all over the world and a good time had by all. Not to go there is to do the City and yourself a major disservice. SOME NEW HOT SPOTS The restaurant scene has changed considerably in the last year or so with the tendency being towards the smaller less grand places to eat-NOMAD the exception to the rule as is DELMONICO’S KITCHEN and a few other places to which I hope to report upon. Indeed the favorite places are oft time in smaller venues in what may be less attractive neighborhoods with major exceptions of course. Probably one of the most talked about places to eat and go to and be seen at and to relish the food is called MISSION CHINA FOOD at 154 Orchard St (near Rivington the street my mother was born on) on the Lower East Side 212-5298800. The chef is Danny Bowien originally from San Fran and while his recipes may start out as a basic Chinese dish it somehow turns into one of the most exhilarating food experiences you’ll ever have. What I love is that nothing ever turns out twice tasting the same and one way is more delicious than the other. These prices are so low even Denny Kodner would have approved of them and if you have to wait to get served, which lord knows I have done on more than one occasion, there’s a small free keg of beer to tap whilst waiting. Lunchtime maybe the time to go here as the wait for dinner can be intolerable. Very possibly the most sought after seat in any restaurant in Manhattan today is at IL BUCO ALIMENTARI e VINERIA at 53 Great Jones Street 212-837-2622. This extremely tight space of a rusticated market-and-restaurant, an offshoot of IL BUCO, serves some of the most unusual and best homemade pasta in town with incredibly aged salamis and hams to both eat there and take home but the roasted short ribs of beef on CoNtiNueD oN page 138

a cold winter’s night will I promise you be the best you have ever tasted-even better than the ones I make at home for which I have my own following I hasten to add!! I warn you though it is terribly crowded and noisy and so I go sometimes for lunch when it is less crowded and basically much of the same food is served on sandwiches for a lesser price as well. And on the subject of sandwiches that is the new comfort food du jour. But back to Italian food-I like PERLA too (and no Linda Low this is not the La Perla which rivals Victoria’s Secret you love so much) another small space at 24 Minetta Lane (6th Ave) whose chef started at Eataly with Manzo meat restaurant and moved on. Again a hard place to get a table but if you are a carnivore person as am I the wait, the noise, the crowd--they are well worth it. On the upper East Side is the larger, older both crowd and time in existence favorite of mine CAMPAGNOLA 1382 1st Avenue near 74th St 212-861-1102--sort of country rustic in design the clientele is city country club. Basically well dressed crowd willing to pay for really substantial good food-the veal chops are unbeatable but I usually let one of the maitre d’s order for me-expensive it is but the attitude is fun, waiters sort of like in a Jewish deli if you get the picture-ask for Salvatore-one of the owners--he’s the best! THE REBIRTH OF THE UPPER EAST SIDE-ITALIAN AND SUSHI TOO AROUND TOWN That the Upper East side has been reborn with new restaurants cannot be denied. But keep in mind this is where the really well-heeled live and the prices at many of these places reflect what the clientele is willing and able to pay. Take the CROWN on East 81st-24 E81 646-559-4880-it is elaborately refurnished as a renovated speakeasy with prices to match. There’s a $55 Delmonico steak and the like-the check when it comes requires the black card preferably someone else’s but the food is grand and the noise level easy to take. And then of course there is SIRIO RISTORANTE in the HOTEL

138 Dog News

PIERRE at 795 5th Avenue which intimidates most from the start but this brasserie type eating hole has some of the best pasta and an rendition of vitello alla Milanese which is unbeatable. It’s a truly posh place at which to eat if you are in the mood and can afford such a place. I am not a fan of tasting menus so will not even go there but I do adore sushi and sashumi so let me introduce you or re-introduce you to two or three of my favorite spots-First of all there is a counter called ICHIMURI located in BRUSHSTROKE at 30 Hudson Street which has the town talking! Difficult as hell to get in because once you are seated you never want to leave! Then of course there is NETA which can easily tear a hole in your pocket without even ordering the omakese menu (chef’s choice) which you know will be done if you are with the Vogels-Cindy and David. An a la dish these cocktail glasses filled with toro tartare and caviar--$48--well worth it you say but after the second or even 3rd one is anything that well worth it? Well I suppose you could name something! The restaurant is a plain typical sushi bar-nothing elaborate at all except for the food, vegetables sushi roll and duck served unbelievable and believe it or not solicitous are the servers and sushi bar people to the extreme. Located at 61 W. 8th St-6th Ave-212-505-2610. And then I would suggest TANOSHI at 1372 York Ave at 73rd street where all meals are omakese although you may express choices-- no reservations but the omakese runs $50 as opposed to Neta’s high-end of $148-they have a less expensive one at $98!!! Tanoshi also let’s you choose additional sushi and appetizers-variety varies and often I go there and there is no Uni which depresses me as I love Uni--nonetheless this is a good sushi spot where you are encouraged to eat with your fingers and urged to refrain from using soy sauce which I never do anyways. Closed on Sundays and Mondays is that new gem of a combination retail-restaurant combo specializing in Japanese food and sushi as well as some rare some utilitarian teapots, glasses and dishes.

people at well-spaced tables in the Flatiron district and is a quiet haven for those seeking inner peace of mind and marvelous fusion and regular food from Japan. Called Mihoko’s 21 Grams at 16 West 22nd street 212-741-0021 it is named for the owner, a former Japanese ballerina, and has some kind of mysterious meaning in a Japanese legend I really don’t understand at all. Nonetheless definitely worth a trip for the food and decor! I cannot deny being a sushi groupie and looking for new and more places at which to park my carcass. My last recommendation is on East 7th Street and First Avenue below street level at the bottom of an iron stair case which merely says “Open”. I usually meet people first before descending else you can wait hours for them to find the place! The address is 94 East 7th Street and the phone number is 212-982-4140 which you will need in case someone gets lost. Is this sanctuary worth the trouble of finding itMihoko’s 21 Grams -YES, YES AND DOUBLE YES is my answer. Both atmosphere in this all wood restaurant (even the toilet seats are wood) and the attitude of the owners and servers who greet you are overwhelmingly friendly. Mr. Sono uses ingredients which are innovative and almost forgivable and may not be to every one’s taste but there are traditional dishes to fall back upon if you have to and a pressed sushi almost unheard of in the city. A sweet potato tempura to collapse for shiokara-a fermented seafood and a pork belly incredible. New favorites are found at every visit-I strongly advise a trip here and if you don’t turn into an habituate you should not be eating Japanese food with which to begin. One of the great finds for the year 2012 will be opened a

full year in April of 2013. There is some sake served along with Japanese wines but the real surprise and delight are the teas which are extraordinary!!! Oops I almost forgot to give you the name of the place I got so excited describing it--KYO YA and oh yes reservations are advised for a la carte dining and at least a day ahead for kaiseki menus. By the way kaiseki is the way to go here you can always add additions as you see fit. POWER LUNCHES AND BREAKFASTS Of course there is MICHAEL’s the midtown magnet for the last 25 years near the corner of 5th and 55th which caters to the so-called “media” crowd at lunchtime. And two blocks south on 51st is THE FOUR SEASONS Restaurant which has its own star studded appeal for media and the arts alike on any given day for lunch and dinner too. You want to sit in the front bar section for lunch that’s for sure there. Michaels they say is changing its menu to appeal to a less starchy crowd but I say why change success except these guys usually know what they are doing. Or for a more modestly priced lunch you may want to try AMALI OFF PARK ON 60TH. For power breakfasts there is still BALTHAZAR at 80 Spring Street--after 10am come the out of towners and skinny movie stars and models--before 10 is the New York working crowd. Breslin and Nomad both have really good breakfasts as does the BLARNEY ROCK which caters to a totally different kind of crowd as you can imagine. If it’s a Mexican breakfast you yearn for none better than EMPELLON COCINA at 105 1st Avenue at 6th street on the Lower East Side. But not only are the breakfasts great the serious commitment to tastes of Mexico are carried out here to near perfection. NYC has never been a hot spot for Mexican food but this restaurant may turn things around for those who indulge in those flavors-I love Mexican food and this is just top notch all day and all night too-212-367-0999. I would add to this list a room which only recently has come into its own although I do recall bumping into both Ellen Charles and Karen LeFrak here CoNtiNueD oN page 146

on more than one occasion. It is NOUGATINE AT JEAN GEORGES at One Central Park West 60th Street 212299-3900. A sleek modern bistro type room running the gamut from breakfast to lunch to tea to dinner. Established over 15 years ago but it has been redesigned and has emerged Nougatine as a lively force on the NY dining scene. Right next to the more imposing JEAN GEORGES restaurant I sort of feel about this place the way I feel about 11 Mad and Nomadless pretentious, more basic and not as imposing a place to dare I say this “grab a bite”!!! I think you will be pleasantly surprised by both the food and the atmosphere even if the name is impossible to pronounce!! GRAND CENTRAL IS 100 YEARS OLD On February 2nd, 1913 one hundred years ago, the doors to Grand Central Station were officially opened to the public. It took 10 years to build at a cost of $2 billion in today’s dollars. The terminal was a product of local politics, bold architecture, brutal flexing of corporate muscle and visionary engineering. No other building embodied the ascent of the City itself than Grand Central than possibly that of the grand Public Library Building on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street. A visit to Grand Central is not only fun but a great historical experience. Not only are there daily various entertainment events going on but through the middle of March special events will take place. It certainly would be wise for you to check the calendar of planned events. The food halls are some of the best in the world. Indeed ELI ZABAR produce stands at both ends of the Grand Central Market are gardens of delight well worth perusing. Anna Katherine Nicholas’s father owned the original fruit stand in GC-how many of you knew that 146 Dog News

one or will admit to knowing it? THE OYSTER BAR, long one of the best fish houses in the City, originates from the days when oysters were considered one of the main foods of our region. New Yorkers of that day consumed oysters on a daily basis the way we drink milk today! It’s always fun to go there although the noise level can be disturbing in the Oyster Bar so those in the know ask to be seated in the back bar room which admittedly takes some of the excitement out of eating there but the food is the same and candidly without the noise the fish tastes better to me anyways. Some people will no doubt criticize my writing the following but you should keep in mind that without the assistance of Jacqueline Kennedy and a hard crew of historically dedicated people Grand Central would probably have fallen the victim of real estate interests in the City more interested in making a buck than in preserving the site as an historical reclamation. In 1975 this New York beauty was threatened with demolishment just as old Penn Station had been in the ‘60’s. There was a major dispute going on between those attempting save GSC and the real estate power brokers here and it looked as though the real estate powers were winning the battle since the City had neither the money CoNtiNueD oN page 150

nor the heart to fight them. Enter Mrs. Kennedy and her colleagues who helped finance the lawsuit which ensued. Indeed it is said this suit changed how America thought about historic preservation as many major American cities joined the suit as amicus curiae so the victory wasn’t New York’s alone but an urban victory to preserve historic sites. STILL THE WINNER LE BERNARDIN is one of the few restaurants in New York City to earn year after year the coveted four star review from THE NEW YORK TIMES. It is a unique space recently redecorated which has to my mind improved tremendously the atmosphere created as it is more intimate and romantic than before. Prices remain as steep as ever and the service a little less daunting than before as the servers seem more human and not as intimidating as they once may have been. Alternatively I have learned how to react to them or they to me with a little less of an authoritative attitude. Gone is the feeling that you were entering a corporate board room which is replaced by a more personal welcoming feel. Additionally the bar was changed from a tiny uninteresting drink stop to a sleek leather-and steel lounge where indeed the full menu is available although I must admit eating on the bar stools here is not the same as at Nomad so I would strongly suggest Le Bernardin dining in the main dining room. What the new bar does is to give a comfort feel to the customer with a lounge enter effect which permeates the entire establishment rather than the go-away effect of the old decor. It is a lively and intimate and almost playful approach although I must admit the new music is not me at all-but that’s mean. And now for 150 Dog News

the food which is the main reason one comes here with which to begin-it is just the greatest!!! There is just no better place to eat fish of every variety and preparation in NYC or the USA than here--possibly in the world and the sauces stand out like nowhere else. Reservations are essential you can try the bar-lounge but I wouldn’t and if you are looking to treat someone for that extra special occasion such as an anniversary or Valentine’s Day which in some instances are the same (hint, hint Martin Sosnoff) this is the place to go for sure located at 155 West 55th St. 212-554-1515. SERVICES AND OTHER MISCELLANY CAR SERVICE-U.S. LIMO- (800-962-2877)-Extremely reliable service with any kind of vehicle you may need--we have used them for years now. UP TO ICE SKATING?--I’d try BRYANT PARK at nearby 43rd Street-BENJAMIN’S STEAK HOUSE right nearby at 50 W. 41 Street which some people swear by-not totally for me although I will admit the atmosphere is great fun and down to earth. The owners have opened very recently a fish house too called the SEA FIRE GRILL at 158 East 48th Street which has excellently priced lunch and dinner meals with fresh, fresh fish-can be very noisy but a good new place to try for sure and if it’s a cold day or night ask to be seated near the fireplace!

AI FIORI Restaurant located in the SETAI BUILDING HOTEL/ RESIDENCE at 400 5th Avenue-dining here at night one of the better and grander hotel food establishments you’ll find anywheres 212-613-8660-lunch is equally as good I may add and of course not quite as dear. If it ice skating in Central Park you have to go to the PLAZA HOTEL’S food court which are fascinating just across the Street.

MAMMALS. What a tribute to President Roosevelt who is buried very close to our home on Long Island as some $40 million was spent restoring the Central park entrance, the rotunda within and the memorial hall. No food company dinner again there is there? What was the name of that Company? I cannot seem to remember--wonder why! It’s a great and exhilarating exhibit Theodore Roosevelt Museum Central Park entrance which does all proud-a visit here is well worth it and in a sense you are closer than ever with the Piers JUST TO SWEAT-There is of course and has been there not too far away. A very short walk on CPW to 67th Street would since 1892 the RUSSIAN & TURKISH BATHS at 268 East take you to the LEOPARD DES ARTISTES at numero uno W.67th for 10th Street 212-674-9250 in the East Village.

MENS BESPOKE-ALTON LANE 11 W. 25th Street where there is a complete line of men’s clothing from ties to what have you. LA PROMENADE des ANGELES is a short walk away at 461 W. 23rd Street 212-255-7400 Great Provencal dinners on the ground floor of the London Terrace in Chelsea. Very popular and being almost like in Nice. I find everything on the menu to be good and not too badly priced either-comfort French Mediterranean food for sure with a coq-au vin to collapse for and a soup de poisson which evoked memories of Marseilles. I would tell you this is a really good find. GREAT VIEWS AND GREATER COCKTAILS-THE SALON de NING, the rooftop bar at the Peninsula Hotel 700 5th Ave. can’t be heat and the terrace can be opened in winter as well with heat lamps of course-depends upon how frigid things may be-caveat-very pricey--well with that address what did you expect and the service can be slow--prepare yourself-still worth the views however--After or before I would go to GRENOUILLE right up the block provided of course you still have cash in the wallet or money in the card-this would be a very expensive but particularly special evening. Grenouille is a very special place with very special people and the most beautiful floral arrangements you’ll find in any restaurant anywheres! Another rooftop place is downtown at THE JAMES HOTEL where THE DAVID BURKE GARDEN is located. 23 Grand Street (Ave of Americas) for views and pretty good food to boot-there is a chef’s table for 6 to 156 which makes for a fun party crowd but check in advance for sure--on Sunday night is suckling pig dinners if that’s for you. Heavy on the singles scene can this place be so be prepared!

NEAR THE PIERS-Well there is the entire LINCOLN CENTER COMPLEX headed by THE HUDSON HOTEL at 356 West 58th Street with a PJ CLARK’s Bar and Restaurant next to it. Those hamburgers are not what they used to be when the place started out on 55th and 3rd where the original still stands but still an acceptable place to eat. The stand out of the area without a doubt is BOULUD SUD Brasserie at 20 W. 64th Street. Perfect for pre and apres theatre or for any time of the day or evening for that matter is his new take on Mediterranean food--very, very good is all I can say but very, very noisy as well. Good prices so that should keep you happy if you find yourself drowning your sorrows or celebrating your wins at the very conveniently located Piers a few blocks away. TWO BOITES--ONE IN SOHO--THE OTHER THE LOWER EAST SIDE-One of the real hot night spots in the City toady is THE DALLOWAY at 25 Broome Street 212-966-9620 and if the name doesn’t hit you in the face try and recall Virginia Woolf! It is situated near CoNtiNueD oN page 162

the Holland Tunnel--no doubt you may find the McCarthy’s there after they have visited Locanda Verde for dinner as it is the new meeting place for some of the most with-it people in the City. The fact that it caters to lesbians is secondary to the fact that gays and straight couples are usually found in equal numbers absolutely having the time of their lives. There is a restaurant for food on the main floor and a cozier action bar for some in the basement. The action starts after 11 pm but it’s a good place to eat at if you want to miss the dancing which is both upstairs and down. Then there is THE SLIPPER ROOM at 167 Orchard Street 212-253-7246 which opens at 8 pm and closes at 4 am. It is a return to wild and wacky NY burlesque where dollar bills are sometimes not picked up by the dancers’ hands if you get the picture. It occupies the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building-the restaurant TINY FORK is not associated with it so don’t get too confused. If you watch from the stage level you maybe tickled, licked or mocked so the meeker among you are better off staying in the mezzanine-guess where you’ll find me!! Gays and heteros alike with the latter in the majority the music is really good but so are the dancers. There is a macaroon shop down the street for those of you more easily offended. OMG thank heavens Giuliani is not the Mayor--he would close this place down immediately but not before sneaking in for a peek I would imagine. In ending I would be remiss in not mentioning two places-one a somewhat old time favorite--at 377 Greenwich Street called LOCANDA VERDE which is near Moore and about which I have written for a number of years now. Much more than an Italian place to eat in a very short time this eatery has es-

The Slipper Room

tablished itself as a major meeting and eating place for all New Yorkers where you have a truly good time with excellent food to help pass this time. Try it out 212-935-3797--very casual and very with it!!! In a new and beautiful space Danny Meyer has opened THE NORTH END GRILL at 104 North End near Murray 646-1600--It evokes memories of Union Square Cafe which was his original restaurant as I recall. He is one of the great masters and this new Battery Park operation is casually beautiful and one of the best packages I have seen in years. Featuring Continental dishes a spot in the dining room is where you want to be although the front room accepts walk-ins. Still the package is not complete unless you are in the dining room-trust Matthew on that one for sure! HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS BITE--SEE YOU AT THE PIERS, THE GARDEN AND THE SPECIALTIES IN NEW JERSEY AND ROUND THE HOTELS FOR SURE--GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN

The Dutch settler Jan van riebeck and his 90 men arrived at the Cape of Good hope, and were received by the Kohekohes. the animosity between the two groups resulted in bloody fights, and the beginning of the slavery. the Kohekohes started losing ground, in addition to being pressed by difficult circumstances into service for the colonists. Later governors of the Cape Colony encouraged immigration, and in the early 1700s independent farmers called trekboers began to spread all over the land. the descendants of some of the slaves, and white colonists formed the basis of the mixed-race group now known as “colored”.

Having been snowbound for more than a week – it’s been a long while since I’ve not left the house in three days – I have spent more time than usual on the laptop and more specifically Facebook. Of course one of the nature-of-the-beast side effects of the phenomenon is that it is all too easy to get sidetracked, which is fine if you have time on your hands and can prove most enlightening. Whether or not they themselves subscribe, everyone now accepts that Facebook is a valuable tool that can be extremely helpful or intensely damaging. It is a hugely powerful vehicle inasmuch as – rather like newspapers used to be; these days I’m not so sure – when someone sees something written in the public domain it tends to be taken as gospel. This in itself is very dangerous as all too often downright lies appear, to be taken as fact, giving the victim the herculean task of disproving them and repairing the damage. Facebook has of course infiltrated every aspect of the dog world as daily new groups and pages appear dealing with specific breeds as well as every general topic imaginable. The whole concept is completely international. Yet all too often these pages provide a vehicle for comments that in the main are negative. For every one poster that makes the effort to tell Facebook that they have just had a pleasant day showing under a judge who understood the breed totally, there will be twenty postings saying that the same judge was a crook and felon with questionable eyesight! Although I have to say I have not been targeted to the same extent as some judges seem to have been, it is exceedingly irritating to be “tagged” in a photograph of a dog that you are about to judge in the near future. If only the owners realised it, they are actually handicapping their dog with many judges. There is a growing number of people in the sport that believe in promoting their own dogs, and as soon as possible. Possibly the most tasteless example of 218 Dog News

this is the recent photograph of a clearly uncomfortable bitch, hugely pregnant, taken the day before she began to whelp. Then the puppy pictures start ... baby puppies being stacked from as young as three weeks, presumably hoping for a sycophantic flood of “Likes”. And so it continues but the intelligence of some owners mystifies me. Do they not realise that publicising photographs of growing puppies (frequently photographed in unflattering poses) give those who only see others’ dogs through critical eyes to seek out every visible fault and damn the poor creature before it ever sees a Minor Puppy class. Where has the old fashioned excitement gone of bringing out a headturning baby that no one has seen before at its first show? One of the negative aspects of Facebook that does bother me hugely is the influence it has over young up and coming judges. As an example, my eye was distracted the other day by a photograph that appeared on the news feed. It featured a mature specimen of a Sporting breed (in neither the UK nor the USA let me stress) which was so alien to my eye I found it quite offensive. It had an untypical head, the straightest of shoulders, a topline that sloped to almost 45 degrees (the relevant breed standard requiring a level topline) and over angulated hindquarters that seemed to extend into the next county. It was also dripping in coat. However, it was not the photograph that caused me the greatest distress – it was the comments that appeared underneath. Not only was there a huge flurry of “Likes”, I read in disbelief as the dog was being praised for excelling in the very points that rendered it untypical. Some of the comments had been made by experienced people which suggests that they will be given credence by newer people who are eager to learn. I could imagine many people thinking, “well if so-and-so says it’s wonderful, then it must be”, and so the perception of a breed gets changed and classic type becomes lost.

Heelwork To MUSIC CoNtiNueD FRoM page 54

morning even in the small village where the venue was located. The first workshop was for six handlers and would last two and a half days. All the handlers were experienced trainers with some from Germany as well as Switzerland. There was a mix of breeds with a Cavalier, Papillon, Lagotto as well as some Border collies. Some of the teams had worked at the competition so I had an idea of things we would work on. To make sure that the workshop covered the needs of all the handlers I started by asking them if there were any topics that they would like me to deal with. Having such a small group was nice as I could focus down on the minute bits that are important for creating a good routine. Many of the handlers were good at teaching the individual moves and some I could see were creative in their training. I set them a number of tasks which dealt with keeping the flow of moves and making sure that transitions were clean. When I say clean I mean not taking unnecessary steps out of one move to get into the next. One thing I had noticed at the Axel with his stancompetition was that a lot of the han- dard poodlers were using hand targets. I have dle working nothing against hand targets and I use on getting the dog them for certain moves but what I don’t to hold its like to see is an obvious hand target. paw up for When handlers tend to hold their hand longer out for the dog to touch it will be flat with their fingers together which is not exactly a natural pose. So one of the exercises was for the handlers to get their dogs to target their hand while they held their hand in a more natural manner. Also some dogs needed to have their nose on the handler’s hand so the dogs also needed to be taught that they could follow the hand but just by looking at it. There was a little Papillon on this first workshop that had brilliant drive and attitude, it was like watching a Border collie in miniature. His handler is an experienced trainer and had taught him to target with his nose anything she pointed at. Unlike a lot of dogs who touch the target with their nose then quickly spin around looking for the food, this little guy would hold his nose on the object until he was released. The only trouble with a high drive dog like this is that when you come to trying to do sequences with the dog it can be doing things before you have asked, so it can be difficult to get them to flow smoothly from one move to another. With such a small group on this first workshop I allocated each handler a individual session where we could deal with anything they required. Some of them had 222 Dog News

pieces of music that they wanted me to listen to and give some ideas for. Others wanted more ideas of moves that they could do for their existing routines. On the Thursday morning I woke to more snow but luckily everyone who had booked on the second two-day workshop had made it to the venue. Most of the handlers I had seen at the competition, so I had an idea of exercises we could work on. Again there was a real mix of breeds and for the first time I had an Italian Spinone on a workshop. This Spinone Amy was not exactly quick, so the handler must have been exhausted by the end of the two days as I had her running around trying to get Amy to drive out and give a little bit more. One handler was in a wheelchair and she had a very nice attentive black Labrador. I have worked with a couple of wheelchair handlers and always find it interesting devising ways in which they can teach moves. Each wheelchair handler has different manoeuvrability; this handler was able to scoot along with her one leg which meant she could do things with her arms while still moving. The dogs appeared to be quite hand focused which maybe due to the frequent treats the handlers would give them. This meant the first exercise I started with was getting the dog to focus upwards towards the face and ignore the hands. We then moved onto other areas such as the flow of moves, expanding content, using accents in the music, etc. One task I often give handlers is to go from one end of the hall to the other without doing any heelwork positions or basic moves. At first the handlers always look at you in horror as they think that all the moves I have said they cannot do are the only moves their dog can do. When the handlers think about it they soon realise that there are many moves which you can use that allow you to move along. Many of the handlers did really well with this exercise even though they didn’t think it was possible at the start. Both groups I could see had trained moves well but when working the dog in a routine it must be able to keep going for a good few minutes and not just get a reward after every move. So to help them I got them to work their dogs for four minutes rewarding the dog randomly during that time. I also encouraged them to use different forms of motivation and rewards in order to keep the dog going. I call this endurance training and with the lower drive dog it can be exhausting from the handler’s point of view as they have to put so much into it. Many of the handlers got halfway through and looked tired themselves so perhaps it might help both dog and handler in this case. I had a great time in Switzerland and thank you to all the handlers for being such good sports and throwing themselves into the workshop.

thrilled to take them for their special riders.” Sue then started thinking that perhaps local facilities weren’t the only ones that might want ribbons. So the former HORSE & RIDER Magazine editor (and current contributing editor) used her personal column, “This Horse Life,” in that national publication to float the idea to her readers in 2009. That’s when Ribbon Recycling took seed. “The response was big and positive,” she recalls. “I encouraged readers to do what I was doing on a local level (collect and donate). But over time, and via word of mouth on the Internet, the concept went viral. I’ve since become a national collection and donation center for ribbons and other types of awards.” Then the dog show people kicked in. “I have a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, ‘Gus’ (GCh. Derby’s Toast With Gusto), whom we started showing with AKC handler, Scott Sommer, last year,” Sue says. “I’ve learned that there’s a huge intersect between the horse- and dog- show worlds. “I mentioned Ribbon Recycling to dog-show friends,” she continues. “The word spread like wildfire. It’s been great; dog-show folks are so generous with their ribbons! And now Gus is Ribbon Recycling’s CCO: Chief Canine Officer,” she adds with a smile. handS-on Initially all ribbons went to therapeutic riding programs, first locally, then nationally. Sue worked with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH), based in Denver, Colorado, to spread the word about Ribbon Recycling; their members were some of the first to receive ribbons and continue to be recipients. “I’ve since branched out and have sent ribbons to 230 Dog News

some therapeutic programs that don’t use horses,” says Sue. “One is Surfers Healing (www.surfershealing.org), which provides therapeutic help to autistic children via surfing and the ocean. Ironically, I met one of its founders, Danielle Paskowitz (whose husband is a former pro surfer, and whose son is autistic), while on a photo shoot in California for HORSE & RIDER.” At the upcoming Pin Oak Charity Horse Show (www.pinoak.org) in Katy, Texas, which donates its proceeds to the world-renowned Texas Children’s Hospital, the show and competitors will not only be donating ribbons to Ribbon Recycling, but Sue will also be handing out ribbons to the many school children from around the Houston area who visit the show each year via organized field trips. “I foresee a valuable second life for horse and CoNtiNueD oN page 237

Dog Show Ribbons... Recycled CoNtiNueD FRoM page 230

dog ribbons as tools in education,” she says. “The ribbons provide a great intro to animals, and especially to dog breeds. Plus, you get a fantastic geography lesson! I’ve gotten ribbons from locations such as Fairbanks, Alaska, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and most states in between. “I’ve also supplied ribbons to Texas Children’s Hospital, and have sent them to groups that use them for fundraisers,” she continues. “One group in Kentucky cuts the streamers off dog- and horse-show rosettes, then decorates Christmas trees, using the rosettes as ‘ornaments.’ They then auction off the trees to benefit a kidney foundation. “Other groups make crafts they can sell, such as wreaths to raise money. Some use ribbons for adults with disabilities in art and dance programs (they dance with the long, flat dog-show ribbons). Dog-rescue groups use ribbons on adoption days, to help highlight dogs in need of homes. As word has spread, their use has diversified.” Pat Roddy, managing director of SIRE (the umbrella title for Houston’s Therapeutic Equestrian Centers), has received ribbons from Ribbon Recycling. They “customize” theirs by trimming the streamers of any existing wording (the name of a horse show, etc.) and placing a SIRE logo at the center of the rosettes. (Instructions for how to customize ribbons are available on Ribbon Recycling’s web site: www.ribbonrecycling.com.) “Sue is wonderful,” Roddy declared. “It’s very generous of her to take the time and effort to collect these ribbons and distribute them. The kids and adults just love the ribbons, and they don’t care what color they are.” Roddy suggests that people contact their local therapeutic riding programs before shipping the ribbons to Sue. That way, they can help out in their own community, and save postage. That’s a notion wholeheartedly endorsed by Ms. Copeland. help WanTed “Ribbon donors have been so generous that I now need help to keep up,” says Sue. “I’ve recruited a friend and co-worker, Julie Beaulieu, Promotions Director for Trafalgar Square Books, to help manage the growth. I’m also recruiting ‘Ribbon Wranglers,’ students who want to earn service hours by handing out ribbons, which I’ll supply, to their own local organizations in need. I have high-school kids helping on a local level, but would like to take that concept nationally. Local Girl Scout troops looking to earn service badges, plus FFA and 4-H clubs have also expressed interest; I’d think that could go national, as well. “Anyone, of any age, could be a Ribbon Wrangler!” she continues. “Ribbon customizing would be a great project for senior centers,

for instance. If you’re interested, please contact me via the Ribbon Recycling website, or its Facebook page.” In the meantime, Sue will continue her role as “Chief Ribbon Wrangler.” “Generally I sort incoming ribbons into ‘horse,’’dog,’ and ‘other’. When a request comes in through the Ribbon Recycling website or Facebook page from a facility in need, I’ll pack a box or boxes full of ribbons (depending on the specific request), and mail them out. Rosettes are more in demand than flat ribbons; I have a lot of flats in inventory, so no longer need them for now.” Are there any ribbons that Sue will not use? “Stained, ripped, or damaged ribbons won’t be usable for a therapeutic facility, or anyone else,” she explains. “My rule of thumb is this: Would you be proud to hand out this ribbon as an award? If the answer is ‘No,’ then chances are a therapeutic program wouldn’t want to hand it out, either. “I also can’t use ones that have a pin or sharp hook fastener for a hanger,” she says. “Such awards wouldn’t be safe for developmentally challenged individuals.” Ribbons that are packed such that they aren’t wrinkled are a plus. “I, and the organizations to which I send ribbons, lack the resources to iron each one. Plus, when ribbons arrive unwrinkled and wellpacked, I can often put a shipping label on the box, and send it out as is rather than having to repack it,” Sue says, “As a volunteer, ‘spare time’ operation, that is a good thing!” Spare time is something of a premium for Sue, who could never have envisioned the growth Ribbon Recycling has seen. “Thanks to all of you who have donated ribbons. I know from showing horses and Gus (who lives at home with Sue and her husband, Rick, and meets up with Scott at shows) just how much it takes to earn each one. I also know that it takes time and money to box them up and send them to Ribbon Recycling. That makes each ribbon very special,” she says. “I love going through the boxes, sorting the ribbons, and imagining the joy each one has brought (and will bring),” she continues. “Often the donor will include a note, and even pictures, talking about a special dog or horse with whom he or she won the ribbons.” One note in particular has stuck with Sue. “It was from the friend of a woman who was passionate about her show dogs,” she recalls. “The woman was killed in an automobile accident. Her friends found Ribbon Recycling via the Internet. They shipped me all of her ribbons. They wanted something positive to come from the tragedy. That note made me cry. “There are a lot of memories packed into each box a person sends,” she says. “I’ll never cease to be amazed that people will part with their cherished, hard-earned awards for my charity. It’s humbling. I wish each donor could see the smiles their ribbons will bring when they reach their new recipients. Hopefully, with the help of an army of Ribbon Wranglers nation-wide, we’ll be able to get even more ribbons out to people in need. That is my dream.”

fall of Lapas. It was a very winding walk through the lush forest, but it was nearly all downhill. I was very relieved to find out we would be shuttled back to the lodge, since going better than half an hour uphill would have been very strenuous. Returning back to the hotel around five gave us the luxury of napping or just relaxing for several hours after a day of a great deal of walking. Friday evening we dined in a wonderful Thai restaurant. While driving Friday to the rain forest they informed us that Saturday we would do the city tour. This came as a pleasant surprise since I thought we were judging both Saturday and Sunday. Since there were less than 200 dogs two shows could be done in one day. At 10:30 we drove to downtown, which was very close to our hotel. Our first attraction to visit was the museum. It was fascinating to learn the history of Costa Rica. The revolution took place in 1948, the year I was born. The new President abolished the army. By not having the large expense of an army this money could be used for education. Can you imagine how we could improve our education system if we had army funds going to education? Our army is not used for protecting us from our southern or northern borders. After the museum we moved on to the National Theatre which was going to be built by the coffee growers. The government said it would cost 200,000 and the coffee growers said they would be willing to pay up to 400,000. When the final estimate of costs came in the figure had reached 3 million gold pesos. The coffee growers were not willing to pay this kind of money, so the funds were raised from taxes coming from the poor people. It consists mainly of art from Italy and it reminds me of a smaller version of the Paris Opera House. It only seats over one thousand people, but San Jose is small compared to the large cities of the world. Having an English speaking tour guide made the tour very detailed and informative. Returning from the city tour by 5 o’clock gave us three hours to relax before leaving for dinner. The choice of cuisine for Saturday night was French. The caliber of the lovely restaurant was up to par with some of the restaurants I dined in Paris at the time of the World Show. Sunday morning we promptly departed the hotel to arrive at the venue for 9 o’clock judging. Half way to the grounds we encountered a marathon and the club delayed judging until 9:30. This gave the exhibitors extra time to arrive and have their dogs prepared. The venue was a lovely building that very comfortably had two rings, officials area and premium grooming space if one wanted to pay for spots ringside. The others were able to groom very nearby and parking was very accessible. After the lovely opening ceremony judging started in the two rings. Dogs present were about 170 and it actually was two shows in one day. One show entirely judged by me and the other by Ikuko. The scheduling was perfect and there was only one short time I had to wait for dogs to arrive from the other ring. Ikuko and I were able to judge quite quickly due to wonderful stewards. In six hours, with a short lunch break, we each judged close to 170 dogs and all the different age groups of the ten different groups and the different

BIS. I have to admit I was even surprised that judging was totally finished by 3:30. Like all foreign countries all of the pictures are taken when the show is over. However, here we seemed to be able to move this process at a quicker pace than usual. Being back in the hotel by 4:30 gave us three and a half hours of time before dinner. Plenty of time to shower, check emails, look at Facebook and a quick nap was a real treat. Sunday dinner was another feast of Peruvian cuisine. I did not know what to expect, but had always heard Peru had wonderful food. The meal was far above my expectations. This was the fourth evening of truly memorable meals and gracious company. Each evening a young gentlemen, Alberto from the club, was our driver and co-host. The fabulous meals and wonderful sightseeing made my trip to Costa Rica very special. But it is because of the dogs that affords us these wonderful experiences of life. Myself and many others could not afford to travel to foreign lands as much as we do otherwise. Most people know my passion for the Bullie breeds. I invented the initial Bullyganza competition at Santa Barbara this past year, which will be even more spectacular this year. My two assignments so far this year included getting to judge ROM shows for Bull Terriers. You can imagine my delight and surprise when I learned a large part of the show would be made of Bull Terries, Bulldogs and Frenchies. It was as if they had organized a special “Bullyganza” just for me. When arriving on the grounds and seeing many Bull Terriers moving around my adrenaline started to pump. Even though Costa Rica is not that far from us, we do not see a lot about their dog activities in our publications. I had no idea as to what the quality of the dogs might be like. I was so pleasantly surprised to see such good overall quality in so many breeds. There were very few Sporting dogs, actually only a total of six. Hounds also only had a dozen. The Bully breeds really dominated the show, with about thirty plus Bulldogs, close to twenty Bull Terriers and about fifteen Frenchies. All of these breeds had some top quality exhibits. It was so strange to have no Dobermans and only two Goldens. The Bulldog

breeders have to be very proud of the quality they have produced. The vast majority had wonderful tails, which were also set on nicely. Some might have been a tad larger than I prefer. Most of them could finish here in the States. There were several Frenchies of top quality. The BOB winner could be a big winner anywhere in the world today. The Bull Terriers were on a par with ours. My BIS winner was a fawn male Great Dane. He is one of the best male Danes I have seen recently. I learned he is of “Ro-Jon” and “Alpine” breeding and has a lot of “Gambe” behind him. The same owners had a wonderful young male puppy, like the adult, was perfectly square, with a very pleasing head and wonderful movement. These two Danes were owned by Dr. Fernando Arce y Carlos Campos. This same gentleman also had a beautiful young Bulldog bitch that won the breed over the champions. My second BIS was a beautiful Beagle of “Lanbur” breeding. My third BIS and also Best Puppy in Show was a five and a half month Bull Terrier. This young red and white male greatly excited me. He has it all. Super head and expression, great balance, movement and the icing on the cake is he is a great showman. He truly brought back memories of Rufus. I am hoping to someday see him with maturity. I understand he is bred in Belgium and is of world class breeding. This young dog has great potential to offer the breed. My trip to San Jose was filled with wonderful sightseeing, memorable meals and great company, but it was judging some very memorable dogs that truly made the experience so great. All of the exhibitors and handlers were so gracious and it was the feeling of being at a wonderful garden party. I hope in the future many other fanciers will be able to share the offerings of the sport in Costa Rica.

T

he Top dog all breeds in The uK for 2012 will be no great surprise to anyone. She has led the field for the whole year and is the first of her breed to take this award. Of course l am speaking of ‘Jilly’, the PBGV. To give her her full details, she is Ch Soletrader Peek A Book. Bred by Gavin & Sara Robertson in 2009, co-owned by Sara and Canadian Wendy Doherty, usually handled by Gavin, Sara has also handled her too. She is sired by the Dutch import Ch/Dutch Ch Cappucino v Tum-Tums Vriedjes, who Gavin campaigned in the UK for a while and who has two Soletrader parents. Her dam is Cappuccino’s dam’s sister, the breed CC record holder Ch Soletrader My Aphrodisiac. ‘Jilly’ won her first cc when a puppy in 2010 but it wasn’t until Crufts, the following March, that she sprang to wider fame. Though still a junior, she won her second cc and best of breed, going on to top the hound group and ending up reserve best in show under Paolo Dondina. She won the title by a considerable margin, her 185 points were the highest since ‘Yogi’ the Vizsla in 2006. Runner-up to ‘Jilly’ has been her closest rival on many occasions and that is ‘Graham’ the black Toy Poodle owned by Lee Cox and Tom Isherwood of Vanitonia fame. They had had a remarkable few years in this competition, as in 2010 their homebred Chinese Crested Ch Vanitonia Unwrapped was Top Dog, taking a record eight best in shows during a single show season. ‘Graham is sired by the Japanese import, Jap Ch Smash JP Best Beart at Vanitonia, who actually only sired two puppies in the UK, the other was a big winner in Russia. His dam is the lovely Ch Vanitonia Gloria May. For the second year running the gundog group is headed by the US imported Irish Water Spaniel Show Ch/Am Ch Whistle Stop’s Elements of Magic CD RN. Last year’s win was the first time the breed had achieved this status in the UK and has ended up in third place this year. ‘Merlin’ was bred in the USA by Stacy Duncan and Colleen McDaniel and is jointly owned by Colleen with Judith Carruthers who handles him in the UK. He is sired by the big American winner Am Gr Ch Poole’s Ide Got Water, a son of Judith’s multi-titles Sh Ch Fynder Freethinker, ex Am Ch Whistle Stop’s The Wind Moriah. Several of ‘Merlin’s’ litter-mates have had top wins in both the USA and Scandinavia. In fourth place and the top toy is the Pekingese Ch Yakee Ooh Aah Cantona bred by Bert Easdon and Philip Martin and usually handled by Bert. ‘Eric’s’ victory is even sweeter as of course he is one of the high profile breeds that have been under fire this year. Because of his placing he is by far the most ‘veterinary checked’ of any breed. He is sired by the successful Ch Livanda Santana ex Ch Yakee of Noble Birth, a daughter of Ch Yakee A Dangerous Liaison, who was top dog all breeds and BIS at Crufts. The Ragus is a kennel well known the world over for its Norwich terriers and Lesley Crawley has now won the top terrier four times, three of her own Norwich and one of her late husband’s. Her latest winner is the red male, Ch Ragus Merry gentleman, home-bred and co-owned by Mathew Oddie. ‘Paris’ is by Jill Stevenson’s Ch Brickin Ready To Rumble ex Ch/American Ch Ragus Got The Look. He took a general championship best in show during the year and he is the fifth Norwich BIS winner, each one campaigned by Lesley. We had another toy dog in sixth place and it was David Reece’s homebred Smooth Coat Chihuahua Ch Copymear Celebration. She is sired by Stanghurst Blue Heaven ex Arrendene Dizzy Dreamer at Copymear. She won a best in show award during the year, and though several males have done so over the years , she is the first Smooth bitch to win a general ch show BIS award. We had an American visitor in seventh place and one that 244 Dog News

made quite an impact during his stay in the UK. A Westminster BOB winner and multiple BIS and group winner back home, seven year old Sh Ch/Am,/Can Ch Salty Dog of Tampa Bay is owned and bred by Linda Hess. Sire by Am/Can Ch Aquarius Centercourt Delight ex Belquest Splash of Covergirl. He arrived here in 2011 and has been campaigned by Anthony Allen. He left these shores just in time to compete at the National Championship in Florida just in time to take BOB!! Two dogs share eighth place and one of them is another American import, this time it’s a bitch. Ch Fleet St Fire and Ice the Irish Terrier. This follows on from the 2011 success of her half-brother Ch/Am Ch Fleet St Fenway Fan who was sixth overall and top terrier, and who rounded off his UK career by taking group 3 at Crufts and BIS at National Terrier. She was bred in the US by RC Carusi, Shari Carusi Boyd and Stan Wojewodski, sired by Am Ch Galeway’s Harbor Master ex Am Ch Fleet St Firebird, who is also the dam of Fenway Fan. In the UK she is owned by Tony & Jean Barker and John Averis and handled by the latter. With the same number of points is the Dalmatian Ch Offordale Chevalier bred and owned by Jenny Alexander, who took her Ch Offordale White lady to Norway to be mated to Ch/Int/Dan/Norw/Fin/Sw/Pol/Cro/Bos Ch Bell-A-Mir’s Elegant Envoy, this litter also included his group winning sister Ch Offordale Sapphire. In tenth and yet another toy-dog, is the King Charles Spaniel Ch Maibee Theo, a remarkable achievement for this breed which relatively seldom features at group level in the UK. It is also a poignant one, as Shealagh Waters, who bred and owned him jointly with Joyce Robbins, died sadly young in 2011. He is now campaigned in the joint names of Joyce and Shealagh’s husband Bill Moffatt and handled by Tanya Ireland. The top pastoral is the Australian Shepherd bitch Ch Allmark Fifth Avenue. Owned Neil Allan and Robert Harlow, she was bred by them as well as Neil’s wife Angie who handles her. Her dam is the group winning Ch Allmark Careless Whisper, who spent a month in the US where she was mated to Am/ Braaz Ch Dazzles Bill A Bing Bill A Bong. The resulting litter, only two years old, included two other cc winners as well as ‘Tiffany’. They had previously campaigned another Aussie to this award, Ch/Am Heatherhill Shock N Awe. Top working for the year is the imported Bouvier des Flandres Ch/Dutch Ch I’m Special Inessence Movado at Kanix, bred by Pat Murray and jointly owned with her by UK breeders Fiona Lambert and Janet Hughes. He is sired by Am Ch I’m Special Every Move I M ex Norwegian-bred Am Ch Praxters Jennie. He has been handled by Dave Killilea who has campaigned so many Redwitch Akitas to top wins. As he was docked in the US, under UK ministry rules, there are some shows, including Crufts and Windsor, that he cannot attend.

contact with complex law enforcement, medical and child welfare agencies that could frighten and bewilder them. “Police, who aren’t trained in child psychology, were left to do the interviews in the cold, sterile environment of a police station before the center’s existence,” Glasgow says. With its brightly colored walls covered with decals of cartoon characters, the Children’s advocacy Center is indeed a child friendly environment. the room where the children wait to be interviewed has an assortment of toys, stuffed animals and drawing materials. even the interview room itself is set up to look like a living room in a family’s home and has a comfortable sofa where the children may sit. this warm, inviting environment helps put the children at ease. the added presence of a therapy dog like Jackson further increases the calming effect. JaCKsOn’s tale Jackson is owned and handled by Cheri Johnson, who worked for Glasgow for the past five years as his executive assistant. During her free time, she and her husband, Kurt Johnson, participate in the leader Dogs for the Blind, Inc. Volunteer Puppy raiser Program. “We got Jackson from leader Dogs when he was a 7-week-old puppy. During the first year of his life, we socialized him and taught him basic commands,” Johnson says. “at one year of age, we returned him to the service dog organization so he could begin formal training to become a guide dog. three months later, we were contacted by the trainers there. they said Jackson was too easily distracted by squirrels to be a guide dog and was being discharged from the training program. they asked me if I wanted him. Of course, I said yes.” after Jackson was returned to Johnson, she decided to pursue therapy dog work with him because he is so good with people. after Jackson passed the therapy Dogs International Inc. evaluation and became a certified therapy dog, he and Johnson began participating in the hospital therapy dog program at Provena st. Joseph’s Medical Center in Joliet, Il. In addition to the stress relieving benefits already mentioned, interacting with a therapy dog puts hospital patients in a more positive frame of mind. It allows them to, at least momentarily, forget about their health concerns and focus on the warm, furry comfort provided by the dog instead. as a life long dog lover and current owner of a Great Dane named hobbs, the state’s attorney knew firsthand how much happiness and comfort dogs can bring to people’s lives. after he learned of Jackson’s participation in the therapy dog program at Provena st. Joseph’s hospital, he was eager to implement a therapy dog program at the Children’s advocacy Center. 246 Dog News

hOW the PrOGraM WOrKs the Paws 4 Kids Program at the center is modeled after similarly successful therapy dog programs. In addition to the pet therapy program at Provena saint Joseph Medical Center, the therapy dog program at edward hospital in naperville, Il also was reviewed. Johnson, who makes Jackson available at no cost to the taxpayer, is present at all times when the lab interacts with children. she and Jackson greet the children when they arrive at the center. she also sits with Jackson and the children before and after the interviews. “Petting, hugging and playing with Jackson really seems to help the children calm down and relax,” she says. the children interviewed at the center, many of whom are the suspected victims of incest by a family member or rape by a third party such as a guardian, family friend, or child pornographer, range between 3 and 17 years of age; with most being between 5 and 12. “One little girl, who was only 5-years-old, immediately went over to Jackson after she arrived at the center,” Johnson says. “she wrapped her little arms around his neck and began talking to him. her mother, who was surprised by her daughter’s behavior, later told me that her little girl hadn’t uttered a word for five days—not since the suspected abuse took place. the child’s mother said talking to Jackson seemed to help her daughter open up and come out of her shell.” While Jackson’s calming effect before and after the interviews makes the experience less traumatic for the children, neither he nor Johnson are present during interviews as already stated. a police detective and assistant state’s attorney, who are present, listen to the interviews as they are conducted and recorded. the children aren’t aware of their presence, however, because they’re behind a two-way mirror in the room. although it’s possible that Jackson’s presence during interviews might speed the children’s response and further lessen the trauma they experience, the implementation of such a procedure must be taken slowly according to Glasgow. “Before we could do that, we’d need to see a legal precedent set where the practice was challenged somewhere else and affirmed in Court,” he says. “We don’t want to do anything to damage the information obtained during the interviews that might cause the children’s testimony to be impeached.” the MOst harD-nOseD PrOseCutOr Of course, it’s not just the children who are traumatized when sexual or physical abuse is suspected. Parents are equally shaken when they arrive at the center. after the children leave

the room to be interviewed, sometimes their parents talk about what happened. stroking and petting Jackson seems to make that easier for them to do. Interestingly, Jackson naturally individualizes his interaction with each child and parent. he seems to sense what each one needs most. “For some, it might be just sitting by them or lying at their feet. For others, a little nuzzle or some gentle snuggling is in order,” Johnson says. repeatedly dealing with children who suffer such horrible abuse--child after child, day after day—also takes an incredible toll on the center’s staff. Jackson provides some much-needed release from each day’s cares for them as well. “after his ‘shift’ is over, Jackson often comes upstairs to my office or goes to the office of one of the other prosecutors,” Glasgow says. “no matter how busy we all are, we always stop and greet him. Often, I hear the other prosecutors asking him, ‘how ya doing buddy?’ while they scratch behind his ears. Jackson can make the most hardnosed prosecutor smile.” JaCKsOn InsPIreD tWO DruG rehaB PrOGraMs Jackson’s presence at the Children’s advocacy Center has met with such success; it inspired Glasgow to implement two therapy dog based rehabilitation programs. “We now have a dog in residence at our Men’s recovery home, which is a rehabilitation program operated in conjunction with our Drug Court. the ten to twelve men in residence there, at any given time, have a problem with drug addiction and usually face felony drug charges. not only has the presence of a dog gone a long way towards making the recovery home feel like a real home to them, the responsibility of caring for a dog is a rehabilitation tool. When these men graduate from the program and go back into society, they’ll have to assume responsibility for their own care. Caring for a dog is the first step in teaching them how to do that,” Glasgow says. there also is a dog in residence at the newly opened Women’s treatment home, which is part of the Drug Court rehabilitation Program as well.

t is with great sadness that i say farewell to my grandmother and best friend, Janice ‘rampage’ ramel, after a lengthy battle with cancer. the woman who ‘wasn’t ready to be a grandma’ has left some hefty shoes to fill; i’ve been told countless times that she produced quite a strong bitch line! gramma, carol (garmaker), and sean (O’connor) had me grooming dogs when i could barely walk. they told me that when i could get a schnauzer up onto a tall terrier table i could take one in the ring. i’ll never forget that day at the waukesha dog shows, i was 4 and i went best of winners! gramma was thrilled. i cannot even begin to say just how grateful i am for everything she has taught me—both in and out of the ring. she helped mold me

into the person i am today. although i have branched out into other breeds, schnauzers will always be my heart dogs. Her influence can be seen in more than just me, but in our breed the miniature schnauzer. One of her many outstanding traits was an excellent eye for dogs. she picked many top dogs at eight-weeks old by studying them in an ex-pen with carol. among those was her beloved ‘rep’ ch. rampage’s representative. He would go on to be the no. 1 schnauzer in 1990 and 1991 and is the breed’s no. 1 producing dog in history. Keeping with the family tradition, rep’s daughter ‘Z’ ch. rampage’s awesome Z was no. 1 in 1992 and 1993. One of a kind in every aspect, especially when it came to grooming, her eye-

brows were absolutely amazing. you could always pick out a rampage dog from afar. gramma’s motto was always ‘if you’re not having a good time, you shouldn’t be doing this.’ that’s something i hope everyone takes to heart. For those of you who didn’t get the honor of knowing my gramma, she took her age very seriously. she was 29 years old throughout my entire life and if you dared question her, you’d get an earful. although things will never be the same, i know you’ll be looking down on us from the best bred-by in show ring in heaven, reunited with all the other ‘greats’ we’ve lost. i cherish the times we had together and the memories i will keep forever. to the best grandmother anyone could ever ask for—i love you. --Kaileigh

I pulled out the couch and slept there. You do what you have to do. It was fine. One night, Audrey Wright invited us to her motorhome for a big lasagna dinner. The wind was whipping around outside, but we were comfy inside with two Irish Wolfhounds and a Great Dane. We had two handsome stewards added to our team, John Constantine and Lloyd Amodei. John’s the president of the Miniature Schnauzer Club and Lloyd is in Boston Terriers. They were helping me organize the group rings. One person would change the sign, one would check all the armbands, and one would get out the ribbons and trophies. It worked very well until the day Ken Kauffman was judging. They are all such good friends that they sat and talked to each other and forgot to do things. No one changed the sign or got out the ribbons. I came back from checking the armbands and I had to do everything. I shot them a lot of nasty looks. That’s the Jewish mother in me, too. I made them feel really guilty. Or maybe not. They never stopped laughing enough for me to find out. Hey, if you don’t have fun stewarding, what’s the point? This show site is really exceptional. The ocean is just so beautiful. It was so bitter cold that not many people could run their dogs. But it’s the kind of place you want to be when you can run the dogs, walk on the boardwalk, and just look at the ocean. The whole wall of the convention center is one big picture window, so all day, you have that view. It’s very calming. They have big rings. But I don’t think I’ll ever be at a dog show where I think the rings are big enough for Great Danes. A Great Dane needs a big ring to move. The group ring is big enough. I’d like to see the ring for the big dogs be as big as the group ring. I don’t know whether any facility can do that. Even outside in nice weather, rarely do you see a big enough ring. One good thing about the rings was that they were totally matted. Not just for the dogs – it’s good for the judges. It’s tough to be standing on cement for five days. Five days on cement will kill you! The day always began with the national anthem. It was a live presentation, beautifully done. A great way to start. One thing I didn’t like, MBF no longer has its staff do the clean up. They are under contract with the people who normally clean the convention center. And they don’t start when we do. The show would start at 8, but there was no sign of the clean up crew until about 10. I like the group ring swept before the dogs come in, but the first three days I couldn’t find anyone to do it. That got remedied for Saturday and Sunday, they had a sweeper machine that you sit in and ride. Two people came in and did it. Good thing because there was sawdust from the ex-pens all over the place. Somebody

else must have complained. It wasn’t me. For a change. The food provided by the clubs was excellent. Marvelous soup! At the stewards’ tables, we had everything that was needed. They were very conscientious about coming around to see if you needed coffee or something. I wanted to be sure to mention this in the article to give them credit. They worked very hard. They did a good job. The trophies for the first three days were hand painted beach scenes in wooden frames. They were just beautiful. Each one was different. That artist deserves credit. (Artist Debbie Miller, cousin of the club’s treasurer.) Terry DePietro and Tom Feneis do a great job. A handler I didn’t recognize came in the Sporting ring. When I looked closer, it was Peter Kubacz, who I’ve known since he was a kid. I’ve known his parents forever. He was collecting a Group 2 on Sunday with a beautiful Irish Setter. I told him, “Stop losing weight. I didn’t recognize you. You look like you’re going for the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ title.” He said, “That’s exactly the look I’m aiming for.” I’m a retired English teacher so I told him not to end his sentence with a preposition.

O

n Sunday, the grOupS Started at One-fOrty-five, so we were out of there by 4:30. That was a nice thing. I had a five-hour drive to get home. But it’s a drive I’m used to because my old beach house is very close, on Pierce’s Point. It was sold to a friend, but Sandy ruined it. The wind and sand came underneath the house and forced water through the floorboards. I don’t know what the new owner is going to do. The first night, we had dinner with Victoria Stephen, a Malinois exhibitor who lives right next door to my old house. Her beach house is on high pilings, so it did not get severe damage. I can’t complain about anything at the Wildwood shows. Everybody tried to be helpful. For three days, we had to be very careful of ice. But Doug Kish made sure they had salt down right after it snowed. You had to be careful walking, but I didn’t hear of anybody falling or hurting themselves. If there was one sad note, I missed my old friend Mackie Rader, who died last year. She would always be at these shows with her Hush Puppies Grooming Products Booth. Her birthday always came up during this circuit. She always ate a twopound lobster for her birthday dinner. She was sadly missed. Thank you, Dottie, for that excellent report. Terry DePietro reported that entries were up; 734 is a terrific number for Wednesday. And spectators were up; the residents of Wildwood came pouring in on Saturday to spend time away from the cold weather with our beautiful dogs. Terry said, “We’re pleased with whole thing. As long as there are no complaints, we’re happy.”

Dr. rudolphfina Menzel recognized their value as guard dogs in 1930’s. Dr. Menzel immigrated to Israel (then Palestine) to see if she could domesticate the semi-feral CDs and train these naturally alert dogs for use as guard and sentinel duty. She was able to successfully capture several breeding pairs, thus performing the first selective breeding in thousands of years. While domesticating these dogs, Drs. rudolf and rudolphina Menzel wrote the classic description of this breed in their natural habitat (“Pariahunde” or Pariah Dogs). They were also able to obtain breeding pairs, so that CDs could be raised by man-the first steps toward domestication. Much of the Menzel’s early work has been continued by Myrna Shibboleth of the Shar Haggai Kennels in Israel. While domesticated, these proud dogs still retain vestiges of their independent living and have unique personalities. This is most manifest by their alertness and reactivity. That the Canaan dog was designed by nature is very clear when one examines their physical appearance. The first thing that one notices is their moderate design and balance. Moderation is the key feature of the Canaan Dog. This balance is essential for survival in a desert environment. The CD’s body is of moderate size with longer legs reminiscent of a North American coyote, who independently adapted to a similar environment. This body shape allows for a near effortless gait that can cover vast territories with minimal expenditure of energy. Desert survival traits are evident in the picture of GCh. Pleasant Hill Magnum of Samara as exhibited at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. If you look closely, none of his feet are touching the green carpet because of a nearly effortless gait. The relatively long legs are perfect for maintaining the effortless gait necessary foraging in a desert ecosystem. The Canaan Dog’s moderate size is perfect for foraging over long ranges. A desert environment would not support an extremely large dog because of scarcity of food. A small dog would not survive in this ecosystem because of a reduced ability to forage, survive predators or defend himself against hyenas, jackals and other niche competitors. CDs have an extremely alert attitude, very keen vision and an excellent sense of smell. As shown in the picture below, Canaan Dogs have a characteristic wedgeshaped head with wide set eyes and low

250 Dog News

mounted ears. The wedge head and wide set eyes allow for better depth perception;this facilitates prey capture in a natural environment. The eyes appear smaller than that one might expect on a dog of this size. Part of this smaller appearance is due to the pigmentation of the eyelids. However, the eye opening is just slightly smaller than other dogs of this size. These features protect against the glaring sun and dust from frequent desert wind storms. The naturally erect ears provide extremely sensitive hearing and they can be rotated extensively for better directional hearing. The tail is used for communication. You can tell what a Canaan Dog is thinking or feeling just by observing the tail. Canaan Dogs are very healthy in general and have few breed associated diseases. CD’s are very clean and have no “doggy odors”. Their life expectancy is not known for certain, but CD’s living 12 to 14 years is common. Life with a Canaan Dog is very interesting. Because of their drive for survival, the Canaan Dog is very territorial. CDs are extremely aware of their environment and can detect even the slightest change-an essential trait necessary for survival in a hostile desert environment. Coupled with their high intelligence, this sometimes can be problematic. For example, Magnum can hear the FedEx truck from about a block away. When it approaches, he puts on his “guard dog hat”, and barks ferociously. When the driver stops and approaches the door with packages, the volume increases dramatically. Magnum has learned that if he barks loud enough, the driver will drop the packages (as happens nearly every time) and flee in his van-thus reinforcing Magnum’s natural instincts to protect his environment from intruders by loud barking. The CD is an excellent guard dog and extremely sensitive to even the slightest changes in his environment. The Canaan Dog’s effortless movement, keen eyesight, sensitive hearing, sense of smell, loyalty and alertness were essential for the dog’s survival under harsh desert conditions.

april: Canadian Junior Showmanship finds a new sponsor in Royal Canin. At Poodle Club of America a Canadian owned and handled poodle, Ch Alaman’s It’s All About Me, wins Best in show! The top 10 holds strong as 6 of the dogs are still tops by year’s end. May: As spring is in full swing so are dog shows all over the True North. In Ontario where there are often multiple ways you can go there are several different dog shows on each weekend. There were 28 different all breed dog show to choose from in 8 different venues in Ontario alone. While the strength of the clubs is nice to see there was the problem of dwindling numbers at each show. Making harder to finish class dogs and the race for top dog more like a war of attrition. Entered at 12 all breed dog shows in the month of May the American Cocker Spaniel Ch Mario n Beechwoods Expressing It Best wins 7 all breed best in shows. By this point of 2012 he has been leading in the stats since February and will remain unchallenged throughout the year. June: June sees the trend of more dog shows is better once again as there are 42 all breed shows in a single province this month. Entries are suffering at every show as the decline is sharp; some clubs seeing a decrease of 70% of their previous year’s total. July: Gangham Style hits YouTube and the world. The Olympics start in London and the world is impressed. The Alberta Kennel Club shows are held at the world famous equestrian center “Spruce Meadows” to a record entry which is good news for the CKC and conformation shows in general.

ported by observers that Ross’ bearing and attitude astride the chair was that of an admiral on the bridge of his flagship. But, this picture of immense dignity and authority disintegrated in seconds into something worthy of Stan Laurel or Buster Keaton when Ross stood to take a shot at a passing duck. At exactly the same instant as Ross rose from his perch, Code also spotted the duck. The dog blew off the creek bank like a fighter jet launched by catapult from the deck of an aircraft carrier, trailing the canvas chair like an improperly deployed parachute. But, in this case, the “streamer” was burping binoculars, a thermos, numerous shotgun shells and other assorted hunting paraphernalia into its wake. Roughly five yards behind the chair came Ross bellowing every naughty word he’d learned in his time in the Marine Corps and his lengthy service as a game warden. Witnesses to the performance later testified that it took a full day with a strong wind to clear the air of the smoke generated from his hot and heated pursuit of the dog. Ross had an unfortunate tendency to shoot a sandhill crane or two during the week-long goose hunts we did in Saskatchewan. Not only did this subject him to considerable derision from his hunting partners but Code probably should have been flagged for piling on for the way he expressed his total contempt at being asked to retrieve this strange bird. All legs and neck, sandhills do not look or smell like any other game bird. Nor do they taste like anything you’d ever want to eat. The only time I’ve ever known sandhill to be even remotely edible was once when the cooked sandhill breast meat was

ground up in a cracker spread with so many onions, pickles, garlic, country mustard and dill weed and held together with so much mayonnaise and sour cream that it was impossible to discern or taste what meat was in the concoction. In any case, Code determined from the first whiff of crane when he was sent to retrieve one of these avian aberrations that it was not something Ross really wanted and since he considered it part of his sworn duty to protect Ross from his own follies, he was not about to bring this thing out of the water where it had dropped. But Ross kept insisting that he fetch the crane and although it was clear to everyone watching that Code considered Ross’ commands to be unlawful orders, he finally picked it up by the neck—the human equivalent of grasping something between thumb and forefinger and holding it as far away as possible while simultaneously holding your nose with the other hand—dragged it to the edge of the water and deposited it in the mud. Then, he stalked off into the surrounding wheat field, sat down and turned his back on Ross. His actions said, “You want this thing, you pick it up yourself!” And, it was obvious to everyone that this was not something that was open to discussion. To the delighted hoots of laughter from his hunting partners, Ross resignedly slogged out through the mud, picked up the crane and carried it back to his blind. Code, meanwhile, refused to be coaxed into returning to Ross’ blind and carefully kept his distance from someone he clearly considered to have taken leave of his senses. It was only much later that he grudgingly agreed to return to Ross’ side. While during his military career and later in law enforcement, Ross had been subjected to various kinds of discipline, he later admitted it was the first time he’d ever received an official reprimand from a dog. Sadly, it didn’t completely

Sprucegrove’s Chief Justice CCD CD SH CWCX WDQ, and just incidentally Code’s full brother, who was re-christened “Tincan” by Ross after his difficult retrieve on a Saskatchewan lake, with the fugitive snow goose in his mouth and the lake where the battle occurred in the background.

cure him of the desire to shoot cranes but he then confined his crane shooting to those that he said had taunted him and he never again asked Code to retrieve one. friends of Ross have conjectured that his talents for misadventure may have started when, for reasons known only to Ross, he chose to ride his Harley-Davidson into Trader Jon’s ramshackle waterfront saloon in Pensacola, florida. He proceeded to roar around the horseshoe bar in the joint and then skidded the bike out the door, an act that caused him to be banished for life from an establishment where all sorts of goof-offs including more than a few who were intimately acquainted with the Naval Air Station’s brig were welcome. Others suspected this propensity may have stemmed from the time during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the early 1960s when the crew chief in Ross’ Marine Corps helicopter attempted to sink a U.S. Navy submarine with the chopper’s door gun. Two things saved Ross from court martial in that incident. The first is that when a sub surfaces, there is a lot of noise in the boat. It has been likened to the sound of a thousand toilets flushing simultaneously. In view of the normal racket inside a surfacing sub, it is unlikely anyone inside heard a few slugs hitting the hull. The second saving grace was that the instant Ross realized the sub his crew chief had sprayed was one of ours, he executed that famous military maneuver known as get the hell out of here! This meant by the time the sub was fully surfaced and the hatches opened, the only thing anyone aboard the sub could see was a lot of empty sky. If life was fair, someone like Ross would have departed for that great waterfowl marsh and upland bird covert in the hereafter when he was nearing or at triple digits, having hunted and told stories and loved and trained his dogs until his final moment. But, life is not always fair and frequently those most deserving of a long life are denied. So it was with Ross when about three and a half years ago, the neurologists at the Mayo Clinic delivered the dreadful diagnosis of Alzheimers Disease. In the ensuing years, his friends and family could only sadly watch as this terrible disease robbed him of everything that was the essence of Dan Ross. So, we held the salute as the last mournful notes of “Taps” drifted across the cemetery and then in the slow manner the military dictates for these solemn occasions, returned to order, arms as the honor guard carefully executed precise folds of the flag that had covered his coffin. With the flag folding nearing completion, it was hard not to reflect on how the few really special people in this world seem to be getting fewer. Major Daniel Colburn Ross USMC (ret.) dog lover, bird hunter, hunt test judge, defender of the nation, rescuer of wounded American military personnel and all around good guy was one of those few really special people. Semper fidelis, requiescat in pace.

Off LEASH CoNtiNueD FRoM page 94

Indian Affairs Committee unanimously and now advances to the House Judiciary Committee. The bill would prohibit counties and municipalities from enacting breedspecific legislation. This is very welcome news, especially after last week’s bombshell alert that saw a motion in Boston, Massachusetts to allow for BSL to be instituted across the state even though a law was passed there in 2012 that prevented a dog from being declared dangerous based solely on its breed. Legislators everywhere are urged to take note of all the ‘bully’ breeds on display at Westminster this week, or even better, attend a ‘Meet the Breeds’ event and see for themselves what gentle, loving companions these dogs make. Unfortunately, there are irresponsible owners out there that do these dogs a grave disservice, just as there are irresponsible legislators that do a disservice to those who elect them. Owning a dog is a huge responsibility but so is enacting legislation that unfairly targets those dog owners who that take responsibility seriously. In a similar vein, the Maryland Senate Finance Committee was to consider legislation this week that would prohibit insurance companies from refusing to issue or renew homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policies solely because someone owns a dog, regardless of breed. All Maryland residents are encouraged to support this bill, which will protect dog owners from being discriminated against by insurance companies and ensure that dog owners cannot be denied liability coverage. Hopefully, Maryland’s residents won’t be suffering from any Super Bowl hangovers since their Baltimore Ravens just won the Lombardi Trophy because they are facing a full load of canine legislation this week. House Bills 178 and 618 seek to address numerous problems that arose in the wake of the Tracey v. Solesky court of appeals ruling in 2012, which determined that all “pit bulls” were inherently dangerous regardless of their actions, and that landlords should be held liable for allowing tenants to keep these dogs on their property. These bills would overturn this ruling and were to be considered by the House Judiciary Committee on February 5th. A worrisome trend seems to be emerging on the canine legislation front of late as well. Variations of animal seizure bills seem to be gaining traction. One such bill unanimously passed the Wyoming Senate last week, which provides peace officers, animal control officers and local governments with the ability to take animals if they witness what they believe to be animal cruelty. Should the animals be taken, owners must cover the costs of care, and the local government may have a lien against the animals if they choose. What’s problematic about this bill in particular of those of its kind in general is that owners may be forced to relinquish their animals if they

256 Dog News

are accused of cruelty, even if the charges are eventually dismissed or the owners are found not guilty! Animal cruelty of any kind mustn’t be tolerated and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law but such a measure can potentially violate dog owners’ due process rights as well as their property rights. Concerned dog owners in Wyoming should contact the members of the Wyoming House of Representatives to express their concerns with Senate File 137 before it’s too late. Here’s wishing all a winning Westminster in 2013 and beyond. May some wild, wacky and wonderful Westminster memories be made this year that will last a lifetime. Some fanciers were kind enough to share some of theirs from Westminsters past: cherie Virden Oh my, over 40 years of going, too, too many to choose from!! But this comes to mind right away. A friend and I were in our 20’s and walking out of the Garden after BIS to go to the Penn, and got flashed for the first time! Classic: Raincoat over nothing but long socks and shoes. It was a very cold and snowy night …. /wink lol Vince hogan Going to Mass in an 8-foot snowdrift one year and helping the priest to clear the sidewalk before going to the show was an experience…and then having to pray for Matthew and Gene at the same time! Jay hyman In the early days we stayed at the Taft Hotel, they had a master key stolen and there were over 100 rooms where valuables were taken. My wife had put her jewelry under the cushion in the Ridgebacks’ crate; it was not touched. Joe Walton “The Waltons” - ‘Good Night John Boy, Good Night Mary Ellen, Good Night Grand Pa’ Years ago, after a beer and a hot dog, I was wandering through the benching area at the Garden, when I ran into Richard (John Boy Walton) Thomas. I approached him, with a serious look on my face, wagging my finger and saying: “Because of you and your TV show, we had to change our phone number. Because of your TV show, we’ve had late night prank calls saying “Good Night John boy, Good Night Mary Ellen, Good Night Grand Pa”. Smiling then, I told him I was indeed named Walton, that I did have an uncle John Walton, and that I had seen him and his bulldogs at the Pasadena KC shows. Also, that I knew his father Richard Thomas, Sr., Eng. Toy Spaniel breeder/judge. We had a good laugh, chatted a bit, and went our ways. By the way, we did change to an unlisted number because of these calls.

ONLY I could consider supporting Arnold, Davies (who was the person I most disagreed with on an overall basis but who has proven in my opinion to be an outstanding Board member in the past), Kalter (about whom I have some serious reservations), Wooding and Daniels. I know how passionate Carl Ashby is about the sport but his answers just go on forever and very candidly I was the most disappointed in Mrs. LaBerge’s answers, which I found tepid and anything but innovative. That does not mean I would not vote for either of them. I am just referring to an overall reaction to the answers in the Questionnaire. As to the people running overall and without really knowing the man at all the only one of the seven I can freely support based upon what I have seen, read and heard is Wooding. La Berge, who I had thought was my number 1 or 2 pick, comes across as rather milk toasty to me, which probably she

258 Dog News

is not at all. Judi of course has to overcome her past-some of her answers were outstanding. However somehow she must get people to trust her again which many are not willing to do nor able to do based on past performances. Alan Kalter from whom I expected great things as a Director and the Board Chair has been an overall disappointment to me. He reads incredibly well but when it comes to action where and when and what is it? Nonetheless he must be supported and re-elected as Board Chair one would presume. Ashby’s inability or refusal to stay out of the day to day running of the corporation are known throughout Raleigh and unless he can be steered in or stopped in this area it is very difficult to vote for him as far as I am concerned. Davies’ tie-in with the Springfield Cluster shows has never made me a happy camper and I believe that operation goes a long ways in diluting AKC’s abilities to function as it should. Whether that’s enough reason to not support him I am not convinced about but once you get beyond that he makes for a pretty solid Board man. As to Lee is there a nicer guy-I do not think so but whether or not niceness evolves into support is questionable although I must say when compared to the people running he is probably as strong and as with it as any of them. The Garden and the Piers are here for sure. Along with the rest of you I am nervous about the logistics of having the show in two locations. Nonetheless if the weather gods hold out all should be grand. If not we’ll just have to live with the problems as there is absolutely no denying the fact that the Westminster crew led by McCarthy and Bradley and of course mother Foti have worked their proverbial you know what off to assure a successful, grand and marvelous transition. Have fun and hopefully take home a Purple and Gold for sure!

BIS was a handsome Scottie. Instead of trophies or ribbons, the prizes were practical items like dog food, treats, and rather amusingly - toilet tissue. Afterwards talking with the elderly couple who owned the Scottie, we were told that they had moved to South Africa when the government seized their land and savings. However in SA, they suffered several robberies and beatings (one that almost killed them). They moved back to Zim, where they manage as best they can. That night we had a relaxed, cordial judges’ dinner at Jean, Jennifer and Sheila’s home. They gave me a small statue of their national symbol, a bird called a Bateleur, which is supposed to be a protective spirit. The gift was very sweet and appropriate for our journey.

EN ROuTE TO ZAMBIA, WE STOPPED for several days in Mana Pools, camping next to the Zambezi River. While we did see some wild life (elephants, hippos, and wild dogs), it was another rip-off. Roads are bone shattering and truly dangerous. We paid $275 for a little piece of ground to camp on for 2 nights. The toilet and a shower (water heated by a wood fire) were about 2 blocks away. Moving on, we stopped in the Kariba area for two nights, staying at a nice lodge, where elephants came up to the fence and hippos wandered the grounds. The only problem was bed bugs. Then the cooler door fell on David - another head wound. Trying to leave, we were told that our paperwork was not in order and we could go, but our vehicle would stay with a Zimbabwe border agent. After much running around town to various offices and negotiating the bribes, we were able to leave, but our frustration and paranoia were growing. Once over the border, we began to breathe more easily. Then we started the 3-hour long procedure and paying of $158 in fees and taxes to enter Zambia, but there were no bribery attempts. Believe it or not, there are positives about all this. We loved Imire and hope their efforts on behalf of African animals survive. Dog people are struggling to maintain dog shows and these people are amazingly positive, friendly and caring! There are two outstanding places to visit in the country, Imire and Great Zimbabwe. While we had had a good time and met some wonderful people, we were glad to be out and although, we had paid extra for a multi entry visit to make our visit to Victoria Falls nicer, we opted not to go back.

Zambia: A national election was coming. Everyone anticipated rioting and were prepared to lock down and stay inside for days or weeks, as needed. The club changed the show dates, to be sure we could be out of the country before the voting. Initially, we were traveling through the industrial Copper Belt. The roads are generally narrow and in poor condition. We stopped for directions and information at a Wildlife Management HQ. Typical of ineffectual management we had heard about, they had almost no information on preserves and parks. We also began to see that the government has given over control of the parks to private contractors, who manage them to suit their $600 a day clientele, to the detriment of citizens and independent visitors. In Ndola, we stayed one night with friends of the guide. The Allins were generous with a lovely dinner and breakfast. It was a pleasure to share an evening and morning with their family and Rottweilers. We went on to Kitwe, staying the next several nights with club members Eric and Lyn Routledge in their lovely colonial home/ compound. Lyn told us about their home invasion, their dogs scared away by the intruders’ use of lion blood. While not as dangerous as South Africa or Zimbabwe, everyone is behind gates, and it pays to be careful. The Routledge family had several large dogs, one of whom was the biggest Ridgeback we’d ever seen. His personality was amazingly human. He came and sat at the dinner table with us ... in a chair. He was polite and civilized, actually a very charming, affectionate dinner companion. The Routledges rescue tortoise. People find turtles and tortoise at risk and bring them to this lovely couple. In an afternoon walk, Lyn introduced us to a few dozen of the rescues they protect. Judging Zambia: The shows were held on the grounds of the kennel club area, which seemed to be part of a rather decaying fairgrounds. Once apparently the site of many dog shows, it was complete with benches and small buildings for cooking, grooming, the announcer, etc. Once again we had a number of Sporting dogs, several Working breeds, and Toys. Once again, most dogs were older, but there were several younger imported dogs. The weather was warm and sunny. I judged the first morning show and was then able to watch the other judges and meet some of the exhibitors. One club member is a particularly lovely woman, who is a judge and a steeplejack. Elizabet, her parents and brothers own factories and she climbs smoke stacks for repairs, cleaning, etc. She is frankly amazing. Lunch was delicious samosas. After the show we attended a lively reception at Alex & Pat McKinlay’s home. Originally from Scotland, Pat and Alex are also judges. They have several toy breeds, but are especially known for their Affenpinchers. In addition to some very spicy food, we were treated to wine, beer and time in their kennels, talking over their dogs. That day, when it became apparent that our guide did not really have exact plans or directions for the next few weeks, CoNtiNueD oN page 262

Lyn and Eric called friends to try to help us with information on the next legs of our trip. Travel in Africa is not easy and concerns about our guide’s lack of real preparedness were starting to prey on us. After leaving Kitwe, we spent the next few days getting lost, bypassing things we had hoped to see because we ran out of daylight or the roads were virtually impassable. One night, we found a mission that rents rooms and had dinner with Aids workers in the mission dining room. Eventually, we made it to Kafue National Park. The situation was unfriendly and difficult with neither maps nor signs, and contract concessionaires who want it that way so that travel by individuals is difficult, dangerous, frustrating and expensive. The rangers charge camping fees even if we didn’t camp in the park. If we crossed a road to go from one part of the park to another, we had to pay the entry fee again! They had car fees, camping fees, entry fees, viewing fees and after paying $75 plus each day, we gave up and left. Worse of all, there was little to see. We were later told that most concessionaires set up kills for their high paying customers so they have something to see and keep customers well oiled with liquor so they won’t realize how dull and uninteresting the place is. Moving on to colonial Livingstone, we stayed with friends of the guide. Through a really good dinner of boerwurst, we heard about hazards of their life, and talked about Bull Terriers, their Dachshund (sweet Chippie - the fattest Dachie we had ever seen) and their Russell Terrier. We had to be very careful going from the main house to our room across a courtyard/ drive, because of deadly snakes known to occasionally show up in the area. Our host walked us to our room with a flashlight and checked under the bed, in the shower, etc. It was comfortable, but a little nerve wracking. The next day, we went to see Victoria Falls. The following morning, we left Zambia, waiting through a line of vehicles and wading through customs and exit procedures and fees... where they wouldn’t accept their own Zambian currency, which we also discovered later is worthless outside the country. Botswana is safer, but much of the driving ranged between boring and terrifying. We were charged to drive on toll roads, which were more like deep sand paths. At one point (after getting stuck 3 times in one morning), David said he was going to get out and walk to the Ranger station for help. I told him that under no circumstances was he walking anywhere... we were sticking together. Subsequently, we learned that the same had happened to another couple the day before. The husband got out to walk to the nearby station. He never made it. The lions got him. Africa is not Disneyland. At one point, we ran out of road... to continue our trip, we had get across a river, via small pontoon boat. The boat wasn’t exactly meant to carry a camper and their overall reliability was obviously lacking. The first boat had some kind of engine problem, so we backed off and boarded a backup boat. Then the backup boat stalled. Eventually, we reached

262 Dog News

the other bank. As we continued, we crossed stick and rope bridges that were below water level. Driving a large vehicle into a swamp, complete with crocs and snakes, trusting that a few twigs and some old rope will hold to get us to the other side, is a truly petrifying experience.

CAMPING AT CHOBE, WE WERE AWARE OF fires on the opposite shore and had been warned about Angolan bandits who sometimes came over in boats to rob and maim. We were utterly alone, except for the monkeys who stole everything not locked up. Through the night, camp police cruised by every few hours apparently to see if we were still alive. Chobe Park had some better game viewing. The high point was watching a dozen lions lazing on the beach. As the weather got hotter and hotter, we ran out of refrigerant propane, largely because our guide insisted on keeping his beer at near-freezing temperature. Food spoiled. Heat affects David more than me and he has trouble sleeping when very warm. I was having trouble sleeping because I was worried about just about everything. We learned later that some of my anxiety may have been a side-effect of the anti-malarial medication, but opportunities for concern seemed very apparent. The next night camping at the south gate of Moremi Park, we had to be extremely cautious because of the deadly hyena packs. A few days before, a pack had killed a boy and seriously injured an adult man by dragging him from his tent. In the night, we could hear them circle around the camper. The next day, Moremi turned into a nightmare of repeatedly getting stuck in the sand. It was hot and miserable! We were in desert and there was a lion kill nearby. Little to see, but plenty of danger and discomfort. Our guide seemed to have an alternate personality that was proving to be perilous to our safety. He started to threaten us. His angry outbursts were becoming more frequent and his frustration seemed to be turning against us. We were having problems with the vehicle brakes and tires, and the refrigeration. As caravans of safari parties found us, they would pull us out of the sand and we would move on until we got stuck again. The strain was becoming soul destroying. At the next town, we struggled into yet another Toyota dealership. They would only help with the engine issues, not anything camper related. Spending a vacation in car repair shops was not part of the plan, but dying in the Kalahari wasn’t either. CoNtiNueD oN page 264

The Adventure was becoming too trying... Travel was difficult, partly because our guide didn’t really seem to know where he was going much of the time. His outbursts and rather irrational behavior became more and more concerning. He became officious telling me that I was not to talk to “Blacks” and that we were to be happy with whatever he thought we should do. He told me that all I was qualified to do was “dishes”. Of course we were qualified to pay all the bills, cook and clean up. Essentially we had become his cabin boys, putting up the tents, fixing meals and cleaning up. He claimed a knee problem which appeared and disappeared with some obvious convenience. He also kept losing his dentures, which might have been rather amusing, if we hadn’t been dealing with the mood swings from manipulative bravado to explosions of anger. Camping neighbors witnessed his threatening us and told us they were very concerned for our safety. They gave us bottled water and helped with directions. It was time to cut the trip short. The guide was insistent that we make a trip into the Kalahari. Other travelers who had indicated we were crazy to be out without a caravan of at least two other vehicles, told us stories of being stuck in the Kalahari for days. We needed to get out. We told the guide, we were going home and turned back toward Johannesburg, but we still had a trek.

WE SKIRTED THE KALAHARI

and stayed a night at Planet Baobab. David went on an early morning visit into the Makgadikgadi Pans to see ancient Baobab trees and a meerkat colony. That night we couldn’t find a place to stay, so we paid a motel (that actually had a red light in front) to camp behind and down the side, overnight. The area had seemingly once been very nice, but was in obvious decline. I was awake most of the night listening to cars come and go, wondering if we’d be robbed. In the morning, we found we had a flat tire. David was able to pump it up enough so that we could struggle to a tire repair place to get it fixed. We crossed back into South Africa, camping one night at Kruger. We did a couple game drives, but little was to be seen, and it was a school holiday, so the park was full of families on vacation. The next night we camped at Klaserie Dam in the Limpopo region. It was pretty, but I was truly tired of dirty communal showers and the stress. The final full day on the road, we visited the Jock of the Bushveld Monument, which turned out to be mostly a circle of flowers. Our drive was pretty and reminded David of the Scottish Highlands. Our last night out, we stopped at a private holiday reserve near Pilgrim’s

Rest. Lots of kids, but pleasant with a large spa area, and a feeling of security. In Joburg, as we tried to change our reservations, South African Air totally screwed up my flights, essentially telling me I’d already left and would have to buy a new ticket if I wanted to leave SA. They refused to correct their error and we have since read that this has happened to others in dealing with that airline. Thanks to a friend in Chicago, who stayed on email with me while he talked with an airline agent in the uS for almost 3 hours, we got our flights rearranged. We packed quickly, checked in the 4x4, and went to the airport. Returning, we flew to Frankfurt. Although an overnight flight, I was still so rattled, I found it impossible to sleep. In FRA, we had a 5-hour layover in our favorite Lufthansa first class lounge. They gave us a large bathroom with a huge tub (complete with a variety of bath salts) and a shower. Afterwards, we had lunch, and tasted a few champagnes. Then David boarded a flight to Edinburgh to visit family, friends and home in Scotland. About an hour later, I boarded a flight for DC. Once again first on Lufthansa and it was very comfortable. From DC to Denver and onward, I was on uA. united First Class is pretty ordinary compared to many others, but I was so glad to be en route home, I didn’t care. Bottom Line: African visits are for those who have a lot of stamina and who don’t mind having to take a lot of expensive, preliminary vaccines for serious diseases like yellow fever and oral prophylactics for malaria, typhoid and hepatitis B. Due caution and friends or club people who know the ropes are important. Risks in some places are amplified by police. Tourism may come back, but there’s very little in the way of help or information for travelers in many of these countries. unless you are fully fostered by a club, if something goes wrong, real help may not be available. Independent visitors need good maps and they don’t seem to be readily available for many areas. Transportation is a real issue. Much of the driving was surprisingly boring and roads were generally dreadful. Whether driving or flying, be prepared for frustrating delays and bribery problems. Most major airlines have pulled out of Zimbabwe. The two South African judges who flew into Harare, reported officials over charging for entry, which was similar to what we experienced at the driving border. In traveling all over the world, including North Africa, Russia, Korea, China, Yap, Palau, etc. etc. I have never felt the sense of risk that we experienced on this trip. We enjoyed meeting some wonderful people and saw some wild life. There is great beauty and many good people in Africa and real hazard. We would love to go back to Africa sometime, but under safer circumstances. Our hearts go out to the dog families who try to keep the sport and interest in pure bred dogs alive while dealing with all their daily struggles just to survive with grace and dignity.

Walking The Straight Line CoNtiNueD FRoM page 90

with a long walk, or just turn out the lights and meditate. Of course, walking away may not be a solution. Especially, if you are in the middle of a “Kennel Club” or a “Delegate” meeting. • DON’T TOTALLY LOSE CONTROL- It’s not uncommon to retain anger, which may flair up later. Steve Jobs, the famous Apple chief executive, is a prime example. He was said to be notorious for angry work outbursts. So, apparently, according to Jobs, it’s OK to have an occasional work tantrum, if in fact you move on with your dog fancy goals, as releasing anger doesn’t require a major blowout. As soon as you feel frustrated, try replacing negative thoughts with constructive ones. Use this time to plan that new kennel or work on your kennel club presentation. Some people say they pray while others simply count to 10. • AVOID EMAIL, FACEBOOK AND TWITTER- It’s too easy to just fire off a sarcastic or hostile remark, when upset. Once the send button is pushed, the message is out of your control, and you can’t deny having made the harmful remarks. Boy, does this happen frequently in the dog world. I have seen some emails so hot, it’s a wonder they didn’t melt the PCs. • ALWAYS BE SELF-CONFIDENT- You don’t always have the time for your anger to quiet down. So, try being proactive, as opposed to being reactive. In other words, be assertive rather than being aggressive. This is especially true when you have a contract breeding that goes bad and the pups don’t turn out as you would have liked. When you calmly explain and rationalize your frustrations, it won’t dampen your reputation in the dog world, as much as an outward expressing of anger. Remember, consider what you say as well as how you say it. • ALWAYS CONSIDER YOUR REPUTATION- Regardless of the object of your blowout, word travels fast. Especially, in the dog world “grapevine”. You may be right, and you may get your point across, but if you damage a relationship, you will lose in the long run. • SLEEP ON IT- How about the 24-hour rule? Write down your feelings, wait the 24 hours, then make your decision. Especially, when dealing with other dog fanciers or good customers. Often times,

when you’re angry, upset, sad or emotional you’re probably experiencing emotions you may not want to make public. So, sleep or dream on it over night. • CENTER THE ACTUAL PROBLEM- When you are fuming mad and ready to unleash, always first consider the main cause of the problem. Don’t falsely take your anger out on that trusted breeder or loyal co-owner. Were there specific contract rules that weren’t followed or was the problem caused
