DEBUNKING THE MIXED-BREED HEALTH THEORY Within the last 10 or 15 years a canine revolution of sorts has occurred as American dog-lovers from “sea to shining sea” have been buying new cross-breeds of dogs spending frequently $2,000 or $3,000 to secure rare and bizarre mixes of breeds. Wooed by cute names of cross-breeds, celebrity endorsement and reinforced by the dangerous myth that crossbreeds are somehow healthier and more robust than the pure-bred dog this questionable industry has thrived. Some of the cross-breed popularity has been boosted further by the notion that they are ‘hypallergenic’ (which many of them are not) and won’t trigger reactions in people who are usually allergic to dogs (which they can frequently do). Only recently has the tragic truth about these cross-breed dogs begun to be raised and posing disturbing health questions about their very being! Instead of breeding problems out of these cross-breeds many of these socalled breeders are breeding them in as congenital defects including eye disorders and hip problems seem to run rampant in one of the most accepted of cross-breed types the labradoodle. The obvious heart of the problem lies in the false idea that by crossing breeds one gets a so-called hybrid vigor: that a greater genetic mix in fact produces a healthier dog. WRONG says these pages as the unscrupulous world of the puppy farmer and so-called “cross-breed” expert actually end up with unhealthier animals by breeding without the health checks long-term pedigree breeders have insisted upon for decades. AKC must get this message across to puppy buyers throughout America using every means available to that organization that when you cross-breed dogs which have their own genetic problems you end up with pups prone to the same genetic problems as their cross-bred parents. People have been sold a bill of goods that crossbreds are healthier than pedigree dogs both by animal rights organizations and shelter agencies anxious to push their own product or to eliminate totally the pure-bred breeder. The enterprising

breeder or money-hungry none caring breeder comes up with the idea of the giant schnoodle or the boodle or Dalmapoodle in an effort to target young families and the younger children to buy a “fun dog”. Not so funny however can be the results as these mixes end up abandoned throughout the land and become merely fodder for some unscrupulous shelter organizations to restock their inventory!

THE CONFLICTING SHOW DATE SOLUTION The Board voted to broaden even further the Staff proposal to modify the conflict distance policy requiring 200 miles between shows. In April it approved two Agility Trials within 100 miles of each other provided the club with the established corresponding date gave its written consent. Now in an 11 to 2 vote with Dr. Garvin and Ms. Cruz in the negative the Board approved the concept for conformation shows too that have a mileage conflict with another conformation show to hold the show within 200 miles of each other if the clubs come to a prior agreement to do so. Apparently there have been prior instances where two clubs were willing to sign a co-exist agreement but were unable to do so under the existing Rules. The agreements must be in writing and signed by officers of the representative clubs while it is the club’s responsibility to insure that the length of the commitment to the show location is consistent with the written permission they receive from the established club. On paper the idea read well but how practical it turns out to be remains somewhat of a mystery. What with the history of turn-over within clubs insofar as elected officers are concerned the long term value of these agreements may be worth little more than the paper they are written upon. Furthermore this certainly opens the door to a possible diminishment of the larger show but again practically why would another show so agree? The idea is in keeping with this Board’s majority, which apparently operates under the philosophy that the more shows the better!

ONE STEP EVEN FURTHER In the new realm of the more shows the better the Board has begun discussions about increasing the number of dogs to be adjudicated upon in a single day from 175 to 200 provided the adjudicator is not judging a Group or a Best on that day. Well here we go again--forget about the physical wear and tear on the judge practically it would appear this is the only way to get the job done to have two shows in one day.

Sure it’s going in the back door to accomplish this but one can be fairly certain this idea evolved from certain Show Supers who have been given the task of seeing that the two show a day concept is successfully implemented. It cannot be under the present Rules so just re-write the Rules as they see fit seems to be the prevailing philosophy of this Board. Too bad they don’t react in this manner to the governance rules under which AKC operates as well. This two shows a day idea has way too many holes in it to have been adopted with which to begin. Clearly those Board members running for re-election in March are standing strong in these judging and show areas, which could have a fatal affect upon one of them for sure and probably both were a fifth candidate clever enough to have run from the floor this past November. Question is whether one of the candidates will bite the bullet and if so which one.

READING TO DOGS TO BOOST LITERACY There is a growing movement among many authors here and abroad which supports children reading to dogs as a means to boost literacy and improve children’s self-confidence. This movement is to reach its height to coincide with national Story Telling Week. This program aims to promote storytelling in schools and to increase the number of children who read on their own time--only 25% admit to so doing and to decrease the number of children who admit to being embarrassed to be seen reading--one in five! The idea has been in existence in the UK now for two years and teachers have reported a tremendous success in getting children to read more by having them read to dogs. The Bark and Read Foundation and the benefits of the program which is funded by the Kennel Club Charitable Trust supports organizations that takes dogs into schools and libraries for children to read to. The reported interest in reading has increased both the reading levels of the children within the programs and well as generally promoted an interest in reading among children generally.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK Crufts will be televised three days on Channel Four instead of the Sunday only program as a result of a general increase in the interest about the show. Westminster’s live presentations both of Agility and for Conformation saw increased ratings for its shows as well. No sense in beating something to death but certainly one would hope that along with Live Streaming of the breeds in 2014 Eukanuba and AKC will reconsider the desirability of promoting the dog to John Q Public through TV as well.

BRACE YOURSELF FOR CRUFTS! It is

encouraging that 2014 Crufts entry suggests that the economic doom and gloom we have experienced for a few years may be turning around. More than 21,500 dogs are entered at Crufts this year, the highest since 2010 when the total was 21,947. This year’s entry of 21,564 dogs, including the Obedience Championships and gamekeepers’ classes – but not the Agility Championships which have another 50 dogs – is an increase of nearly five per cent on 2013’s figure of 20,566. From 2006 to ‘09 the number of dogs exceeded 22,000. Before that the only year with more than 22,000 was 1991, the centenary show which drew a world record 22,991 dogs. As ever, the event has a true international flavour with 2,663 dogs competing from overseas, compared to 2,131 in ‘13, an increase of 25 per cent. Dogs from a total of 48 overseas countries will take part in the show compared to 41 last year, including Bermuda, Japan, Taiwan and Israel plus of course many from the USA and Europe. Whilst there is to be more TV coverage this year (on Channel 4 and More4) than we have seen since the show was unceremoniously dropped by the BBC, it is a sign of the times that the many pre-Crufts TV programmes that have been screened to date have focussed on the other disciplines rather than the conformation aspect, which was the original raison d’etre for the show. If you are a first time Crufter there is lots you need to know about the show. The first time I visited Crufts Dog Show I was in my very early teens, obviously not old enough to drive, so I had taken the train to London – a big step for a lad from the Welsh Valleys! – and I can still recall the sense of wonderment I felt when I stepped through the doors at Olympia, its then home. The noise, the smell, the

Brace Yourself By ANDREW BRACE hustle and bustle, and the dogs … it eclipsed anything that Santa’s Grotto had ever evoked in me as an even younger child and almost instantly I felt that I had suddenly discovered “my” world. It is a world I have been happy to be part of for the past fifty-odd years. In those days the BIS ring was simply cordoned off by primitive ropes and there were a few rows of basic seating around the perimeter – how times have changed! I was the kid in the proverbial candy store and I have only missed one Crufts since – and that was down to my working in a job that necessitated my being overseas on a sales trip at the time; a job that was very short lived needless to say. Olympia had the most fabulous atmosphere … for all that it was dirty, crowded, noisy and somewhat disorganised by today’s

“The first time I visited Crufts Dog Show I was in my very early teens, obviously not old enough to drive, so I had taken the train to London – a big step for a lad from the Welsh Valleys!” 14 Dog News

standards it truly had a magic that was unique and, jaded though we may feel as we get older, I still get that same thrill every time I attend Crufts. After the show the hardened dog crowd retired to The Hand and Flower - the pub across the road - and put the world to rights. For a wideeyed youth who was sipping the first cups of dogdom, this was the place to stargaze and see the superstars, the movers and shakers close up! Having outgrown Olympia, Crufts moved to another London venue, Earls Court, a larger venue much more suited to Crufts’ ever increasing size. Inevitably the world’s most famous dog show (and its largest) outgrew its new home and when a suitable alternative venue could not be found in the capital city, London, there was the inevitable hue and cry. Crufts out of London was unthinkable. Despite the fact that parking was an absolute nightmare, hotels were vastly overpriced and the shows were congested, everyone expected Crufts to remain a London show, but nothing stays the same. Then the show moved to Birmingham and the vast National Exhibition Centre. The doubting Thomases said it would be a flop, that the foreigners wouldn’t come because they didn’t just want Crufts the dog show; they wanted Crufts with access to some of the best Continued on page 58

BAbbling THE BEST WAY TO LEARN... By Geir Flyckt-Pedersen

A

bout dogs in general as well as specific breeds will forever be subject for discussions. Just during the last year we have heard of so many new changes and ideas regarding the judges approval system. Some are already in operation while other ideas are still “under investigation”! My hope is that some of them remain in that category forever and ever! The fact that the judges approval system has been revised and names of all applicants masked has been the cause of many a discussion and has seriously upset many of the most established and respected dog people and judges in the country. The rotation of members in the committee appointed to assess such applications is also interesting- as the idea of “treating us all the same” is surely not possible. But of course the rotation is good from the point of view that it does not “monopolize” the job which could give a few people too much influence- and the chance to live out their personal preferences as well as favor certain individuals or groups. Then of course you would expect anybody selected for this job to be of a caliber to rise above that and have personal strength and integrity to objectively assess these applications. Based on the masking of potential judges I wonder if the selection for these jobs was done by numbersin other word masked?? It has always been my opinion that this country has a uniquely well qualified group of people to recruit new judges from: The ranks of professional handlers as well as their assistants. Not to mention the Field Reps. Nowhere else in this world will you find people who have been able to live, work with and show dogs the way we see over here. If you spend 4 days a week at dog shows, in many cases 24 hours a day, with dogs and a variety of handlers

as well as breeders with “expert status“ you would be pretty dull-minded if you did not absorb a lot of wisdom and knowledge. These guys know the ins and outs of the game as well as the procedure and etiquette. I know that in days gone by, many of the most prominent all breed handlers upon retirement were “given” a couple of groups and I have been told that some people were given all groups. I see nothing wrong with any of that, as long as the “aftercare” is in operation and that their job is supervised by qualified people. As in all other areas of life, there will always be exceptions. We have witnessed individuals with lifelong involvement in the sport who when elevated to the sphere of judges have clearly indicated that how we as human beings absorb knowledge, wisdom and common sense can vary greatly! How to act and interact with people is just as important as being able to interact with dogs in the show ring. For some people it all comes naturally while for others, not at all... Back to the learning process: If the people you are listening to are people with lots of experience and for whom you have loads of respect, the occasion might prove to be very special and memorable. One of my “moments” took place at the Worlds Largest Porch, at the Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island. Must by now be some 20 years ago. Dog Days at Grand Hotel was still a tradition and well known breeders, judges and handlers flocked to the island for a few days golf, relaxationand lots and lots of dog talk: This moment involved English Springer Spaniels ,an afternoon on the porch- I had the pleasure of – silently for once- listening to a conversation between the Great Julia Gasow (who although no longer with us hopefully needs no further presentation), Judy & Dick Cooper, Joanie & Clint Harris, Andrea & Tommy Glassford and if my

memory serves me right, a very young Kellie Fitzgerald, plus a number of “celebrities” from other breeds with names like Chashoudian, Ward, Green, Rood, Forsyth, Grivas, and many, many morebut I concentrated on the conversation between the Springer enthusiasts and their comparison of dogs present and past. And for me coming from Europe- a little about the transformation and difference in the breed on the 2 continents and theories on how it all happened. I still believe there are some untold secrets which through Mrs. Gasow’s death will forever remain anything but just that: Secrets! Very, very interesting- and it would be like an impossible dream to put together a team consisting of Gasow, Cooper, Harris and Glassford for a seminar on the breed. If you don’t remember their involvement in the breed, take a look at the background and experience represented by them and I think you will be impressed. Well, by now it’s too late anywaybut not until recently did I really fully comprehend what a unique experience that had been. And again proof that all great minds don’t think alike! Which in itself gives things a different perspective- and to repeat myself- makes this hobby so interesting. The fact that we spent time with this group of people over several days and had lengthy Springer discussions is as far as I can understand of no importance, while an hour or so at the ringside with some newly appointed educator from a breed club would be considered a more worthwhile experience. What I am trying to say is that there is so much experience earned in so many different ways for which there is no room to highlight and of consideration during the application process. Having been part of this world for 50+ years I have been lucky to meet and spend time with so many top breeders from so many breeds and a variety of countries- and been involved in puppy selection, following them growing up Continued on page 70

The Board at its last meeting discussed without taking any action the idea of increasing the number of dogs a judge may adjudicate upon per day from 175 to 200 provided the judge is not assigned a Best or Show or a Group on that day. What do you think of this idea?

h on Of T Questi

Joan Zielinski What time could groups possibly begin while the judges are busily finishing up their 200 dog assignments? It would seem to me to be a collision of times with breed judging and groups overlapping. Just one more example of Ready, Fire, Aim I should think. Winnie Stout I think that most judges who could attract an entry of that size could also handle it. However, some judges might prefer to have a group or BIS assignment. Beverly Capstick My question would be why? The superintendents have enough problems with scheduling groups. Adding another hour of judging for some individuals would extend downtime for others. On the other hand, if you judge 175 dogs and then do 3 groups, that is more than 200 dogs judged! Their idea that the judge can only do this IF not assigned BIS or a Group, sounds good, but what about those other groups that must wait for him/her to finish the assignment. Once again good idea on paper but not thought out. Ruth Zimmerman Personally, I find the idea to increase the number to 200 absurd. It might be ok for one day, but many times, we have 3 even 4 days of judging, and depending on conditions, i.e.. weather, ground conditions, etc., the increase would be physically exhausting for many of our senior judges, including myself!

Ken McDermott It seems the ultimate ironic situation when we have weekend after weekend after weekend of falling numbers of entries that this should EVER have become a topic of interest! Gretchen Schultz Seriously? Do they want the show to go on and on 1 judge @ 25 dogs per hour with a break for lunch 200 dogs is about 8-9 hours! Not expedient nor a viable solution! Florence A Males Those last 25 are getting a very tired judge. Thought processes as well as physical stamina. I don’t think it’s fair to the exhibitor!!!

Lisa Warren Doing a Group of 20+ dogs might seem to be equivalent to doing another 25 breed dogs, but there is a difference. When completing an assignment of 175 dogs and then doing a group or two, (or even three, as was recently related to me,) there is a big, hopefully energizing, change-of-pace factor: the judge changes rings and mind-sets and switches to a different ring procedure. And, with any luck at all, that judge gets to sit down for 15 or 20 minutes before judging the group. The end of a 175-dog day has the best of us, I suspect, being grateful when the last breed hits the ring and perhaps sometimes not doing it full justice because of weariness beginning to set in. (Doesn’t a packed day of judging always seem to fall either at the end of the cluster or on the day after a poor night’s sleep?) Another hour of breed judging could find the last breeds not getting the full focus judges want to bring to the job. I realize that there could be some savings to clubs coming from such a change, but without further knowledge as to why such a change is being considered, this falls into my “If it ain’t broke….” category. Wayne Ferguson Why overwork our Judges? Ask the ones who judge 200 dogs in one day at Specialties and they will tell you that it’s long and exhausting, especially standing on concrete or having an inexperienced Steward. There are over 3,400 AKC licensed conformation judges and most would welcome more assignments, so why not use them instead? This could also delay group judging by as much as one hour. Tracy Favre I think that would be ok. Thanks for getting input. Todd Clyde I think this would be a bad idea. As for some Judges doing 200 dogs a day would be no problem for some other Judges doing 150 dogs is an impossibility. To blanketly raise the limit on all Judges adding extra stress and time consideration on their discussion making process will only hurt the people asking for an honest evaluation of their dogs. How would you like to be the owner handler showing in the open dog class under somebody who has judged 195 dogs in 95 degree heat?

The Lighter Side of Judging By Michael H. Faulkner

Trains, Planes and Dogs A s airlines continue to cut services and continue to create hassles, I turn to the railroad as a viable means to get to the dog show, when possible. Granted, trains in the United States are not noted for their efficiency, as in Europe, but when it is convenient to travel by train from Tidewater, Virginia to my destination, it is the best travel option. Just thinking of taking off my shoes, separating my electronics, limiting my carry-on luggage, being charged for my checked luggage, putting liquids in 3.4 oz. containers, subjecting myself to body scans, undergoing physical pat downs (Well, actually…depending on who is doing these, I really don’t mind.), testing for explosives, being restrained in non-reclining seats, and having to remain strapped in my seat for the majority of the trip, can bring sweat to my brow. Yes, trains are designed for long-distance, comfortable travel with fully reclining seats. They encourage you to get up and walk around, visit the dining and lounge car, and if I you are a smoker (God forbid), you can hop off the train during certain stops for a brief nicotine fix. Each year, when planning my travel to New York City for the Westminster Kennel Club and all the pre-event activities, I choose AMTRAK, and this year was no exception. I booked my ticket through the AMTRAK online reservation site---Richmond to Penn Station aboard The Silver Meteor (the first diesel-powered streamliner between NY and FL) for my departure and from Penn Station to Richmond aboard the Silver Star for my return trip, early Monday morning. Due to professional obligations back

home, I was not able to attend the show. “Someday I will be rich and retired and this conversation will not occur,” I repeated to myself several times, while simultaneously restraining my fingers from adjusting the return date to Wednesday morning. “Oh well, at the very least, I will be able to curl up on the couch with Murphy French (French Bulldog), watch the wonderful Purina Pro Plan commercials, and not have to struggle with my desire for a great Cabernet,” I added to the mental conversation. So, this particular trip was to, once again emcee, along with Dr.JRN, the 2013 BowTie---Show Dogs of the Year Awards and to spend a couple of nights in NYC with BIGMICHAEL. BIGMICHAEL, returning from business in Atlanta, flew back to DC, boarded a different train and met me at Penn Station, before walking across the street and checking into the hotel. However, I am getting ahead of myself and this story needs to return to the Staples Mills Road Train Station in Richmond, Virginia, the morning of my departure. I arrive at the station at 4:00 AM, forty-five minutes before my departure. Other than a young girl, who is stretched out on one of the long, brown vinyl covered benches, listening to her boyfriend, who is shouting at her through her hand held device, I am the only person in the station. “Dang! I ain’t seen you for a minute, girl! Where you been?” A male voice screeches through the smart-phone. “Why you all up in my biznezz?” The young girl replies with copious attitude. “Yo, you don’t need to be all up in my grill unless you want me to put that smack-a-lack on ya!” he offers tartly in response. “What in the hell! 4:10 in the morning---turn off the damn speaker on your phone!” I internally shriek. “You be trippin’ with me, nah-mean? You be my nasty bee---atch. You know I never e’en looked at yo’ sista-girl--she be pretty

and all, but she got the seed,” he continues. Holding back the urge to grab her phone and sling it against the concrete wall, I choose more wisely, in dread of her gangsta boyfriend showing up at the train station in a testy mood. In the meantime, several other passengers enter the stark lobby and I become less transfixed by nasty BEE---ATCH’s conversation with her boo. I do, however, become fixated on not knowing what “she got the seed” means. In a quick effort to settle my wondering mind, I activate my own personal smart phone DROID for a possible answer. I lightly press the screen with my right index finger: s..h..e…g..o..t…t..h..e…s..e..e.d. “Oh, I see. Translated, that means the other girl in question is pretty and all, but she be with child.” Oh my, this is just too complicated without coffee.

he schedule board clicks, informing waiting passengers that The Silver Meteor will be arriving late, thus causing a fortyfive minute delay in our departure. The waiting area quickly fills with warm bodies anxious for train travel. A young, female, AMTRAK employee, opens the ticket-counter for business and announces, “Good morning my name is LORI, if you need to check your bags, please see me at the counter. Make sure you weigh your bag first before passing it to me.” I jump at the chance, quickly weighing and sliding my black-ballistic-nylonrolling-garment-bag through the large opening under the counter. “Your ticket please…” “Oh, right. I’m going to Penn Station,” I quickly declare. “There you go, you’re all set. The train in currently in Petersburg and we should be boarding in around twenty minutes.” I offer thanks and with Manbag over my left shoulder, I maneuver myself through the crowd, lean against Continued on page 74

Is Your Breed “Vulnerable”? By Carlotta Cooper

T

he Kennel Club in Britain recently released its 2013 registration information, including breed figures. For those of us with breeds with smaller registration numbers, even in the U.S., it’s refreshing to see this kind of information. I have a breed (English Setters) that’s been hovering around the “vulnerable” mark in Britain – that is, a native British breed with fewer than 300 individuals registered per year. English Setters grew from 312 puppies registered in 2012 to 326 registered in 2013. Pop the champagne! It’s certainly too soon to celebrate but just a couple of years ago the breed only registered 234 puppies after a decade of decline. And the English Setter is by no means as bad off as some of the other native breeds. You can see registration numbers for the breeds registered in the UK here, along with their 2012 numbers: http://www.dogworld. co.uk/shopimages/products/normal/ mainsite/tables7.pdf Total Kennel Club registration figures for 2013 were 223,770. That’s 5,460 fewer than in 2012, which represents a 2 percent drop, though Kennel Club officials note that the last quarter of the year showed a slight recovery in numbers. The three most popular breeds in Britain remain the same as in 2012, though with slightly reduced numbers: Labrador Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels (English, to us), and the English Springer Spaniel. You should keep in mind that the United Kingdom is a nation of some 63 million people when looking at their numbers – about one-fifth the population of the United States at 313 million people. Vulnerable breeds, overall, increased their registrations by about 2 percent. However, some vulnerable breeds continue to struggle. Registrations for the Skye Terrier, for example, fell by 59 percent last year with the breed registering only 17 puppies. Unfortunately, we currently have little idea what the individual breed figures are for our breeds here in the U.S. Per Alan Kalter’s recent Chairman’s Report, the AKC registered 479,404 dogs in 2013, but I

haven’t seen an individual breakdown of the breeds. I think we all know that there are plenty of pressures on breeders and buyers today that are responsible for the drop in registrations. We have a heavy push from animal shelters for people to get a mixed breed dog instead of buying a purebred puppy. Animal rights people talk trash about dog breeders and purebred dogs at every opportunity. It’s more expensive to breed and show dogs today. New laws make it harder and harder to keep and raise dogs. There is lots of social pressure on dog owners to spay and neuter puppies as soon as possible instead of thinking about breeding a litter at some point. We’re living in a different world than the one that existed in 1992 when AKC registered 1.5 million dogs. Since we are living in a different world today, we need to get rid of the old playbook, especially those of us who have “vulnerable” breeds. We may not have the same kennel club-sanctioned program here in the U.S. that exists in Britain, but there are certainly breeds here which have to be cognizant of the fact that we don’t register many dogs each year and we have a small gene pool. That’s why it would be so helpful if AKC would once again start posting the breed registration statistics – both the litters and individual dogs registered. If the AKC is now registering one-third of the dogs that it registered in 1992, it means that the individual breed numbers are also down. We need to know what those numbers are so we can take action. There are many people in each breed who won’t take these issues seriously until they see how low the numbers in their breed have gotten in the last few years. Your Flat-Coated Flugelhound may still be ranked 54th in the registration rankings but that tells you nothing about how many litters are born or how many dogs are registered. Your breed might be on the verge of extinction and you wouldn’t know it. Continued on page 82

How did you decide on your kennel name?

My original kennel name was Henlen after my family’s Dobermans. When Rob and I bought our place 14 years ago, we renamed our program Sweetbriar to honor the memory of Peg and Haworth Hoch, who lived here for years and called it Sweetbriar. They were breeders of Shetland Sheepdogs and both were judgesMrs. Hoch judged obedience and Mr. Hoch a multi-group judge who was at one time chairman of the AKC Board.

What was your most disappointing dog show loss?

Who is/was your mentor in dogs? My father and Jack Funk.

My first BIS (and hers) on my Doberman Pinscher bitch Ch. Kyger’s Second Hand Rose.

Mostly local when I am at home.

Can you forgive and forget? I can forgive, forgetting not so easy.

Which two people would you have face off on “Survivor”? Doug and Barry.

Questions ASKED OF:

The last book you read?

You get your news from CNN, Fox News, PBS, local or none?

hen Westminster Kennel Club Best In Show Judge Betty Regina Leininger walked into her ring on Tuesday evening, Feb. 11, she most certainly had the same reaction as did the crowd in Madison Square Garden and the live audience on national television. Wow. Never before had such a lineup been assembled for the moment of truth in America’s Dog Show.

When it was over, as most of the civilized world knows by now, Ms. Leininger had pointed to Sky as the winner of Best In Show at the Westminster Kennel Club’s 138th Annual All Breed Dog Show. The win provided a fitting conclusion to a career that had included her #1 standing in all breed competition for 2013, and the unofficial triple crown, with wins in the National Dog Show presented by Purina in 2012, the AKC Eukanuba National Championship in 2012, and now, the 138th Annual Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show. The win marked the 14th Best In Show award for a Wire Fox Terrier and the 46th win for a Terrier at Westminster in the 107 years of the award, by far the leading number for both a breed and a Group. The last time that a Wire had won at Westminster was in 1992 (Ch. Registry’s Lonesome Dove). In winning his second BIS win in five years as a handler (he won with Sadie the Scottish Terrier in 2010), Gabriel Rangel

Consider:

• All of the top three show dogs from 2013, four of the top five, had made their spotlighted entrance into the ring to await her appearance, and five of the seven were the #1 dogs in their Groups for 2013. • Four of the finalists had collected more than 100 career Bests In Show, nothing less than amazing considering that only 37 dogs in history had achieved that number. • There were 522 Bests In Show standing out there in the center of PHOTO BY Ida Mae Astute/ABC

became the 17th multi-BIS handler at Westminster (Percy Roberts and Peter Green won four times, Donald Munro and Anne Hone Rogers three each, and 12 others twice, the most recent being Scott Sommer in 2001 and 2009). For Ms. Leininger, a breederowner-handler, professional handler, teacher and author, it was her sixth Westminster judging assignment. “She’s in superb condition and was expertly presented,” she said, “as were all of my dogs in the ring. “But it was more than that for her. There’s something magical that happens, and it’s hard to put into words,” Leininger said. “But it’s unmistakable. It’s the ‘it’ factor. I’ve seen her before, but she was really on tonight, she owned this night. “She just said, ‘Pick me.’” And Ms. Leininger did just that. “She’s a perfect little dog,” Rangel said. “When you put her on the table, she’s ready to be brushed. When you put on the leash, she’s happy and ready to be walked.” Torie Steele, one of Sky’s owners, said, “It’s like winning an Oscar, one of those things you hope for.” “I’m used to winning, but not like this,” said owner Victor Malzoni Jr. “This is something very incredible to me.” Ally, the Standard Poodle, was selected as Reserve Best In Show. On Wednesday and Thursday, Sky went on the famous Westminster World Media Tour and visited at Fox & Friends, Good Morning America, WCBS On The Couch, Fox5 Good Day New York, Today, The View, Shepard Smith on FOX News, and Keith Olbermann on ESPN. She drew a media crowd at Wednesday’s annual stop at Sardi’s, the world-famous restaurant in New York’s theater district. There, to the delight of photographers and reporters, Sardi’s owner Max Klimavicius served her chicken paillard (chopped) on a silver platter. The chicken promptly disappeared. One of her surprise


guests at Sardi’s was Michael Kors, who was there celebrating the conclusion of the famous Fashion Week in New York. After that, Sky made a stop at the Empire State Building, where she and Gabriel posed for the same picture posed for by many champions and celebrities on the 86th floor observatory (note: for the 11th year, the tower lights in the world’s most famous building had been lit in Westminster colors of purple and gold on the Monday evening of the show). On Thursday night, Sky had a walk-on in Broadway’s biggest hit show, “Kinky Boots,” where she needed no introduction, the crowd cheering her wildly the moment she appeared on stage. Her stage will be much larger now as the world’s newest single-name celebrity, America’s Dog for the next year. BORDER COLLIE WINS FIRST WESTMINSTER MASTERS AGILITY CHAMPIONSHIP

I

t’s become an all too familiar refrain. Each year, American Kennel Club (AKC) registrations further decline. Just how much have they declined in all? Registrations for 2012 fell to one-third of what they were at their peak in 1992. The general public’s interest in purebred dog ownership has been seriously eroded by the efforts of animal rights extremist organizations during the last 30 years.

By Sharon Pflaumer

Patti Strand had the foresight to recognize the potential for this to happen as early as 1993 when purebred registrations first began to slide. She is a long time Dalmatian breeder, an AKC Judge and a 16-year member of the AKC Board of Directors. Since then, Strand led the fight to preserve Americans’ right to own and use animals in a variety of humane, responsible contexts by fighting restrictive animal rights legislation. She, along with her husband Rod, also wrote The Hijacking of the Humane Movement: Animal Extremism, which is an examination of extremist elements in the animal rights movement. Despite these efforts, more action was needed. In the early 1990s, it became apparent to Strand that animal rights extremists were beginning to dominate the conversation about animals. Because the information they provided was highly distorted and destructive of

Patti Strand’s NAIA

everything she and other responsible, humane animal owners and users care about, she decided to found an organization that would counter this by providing the general public with factual information about animalrelated issues. To that end, Strand cofounded and became the National Director of The National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA) in 1991. It’s an organization dedicated to promoting animal welfare, with animal welfare being defined as the belief that it is appropriate for people to utilize animals as long as they do so humanly and responsibly. Her cofounders included members of the pet industry, research scientists, academics, ranchers, breeders, dog owners involved in dog sports, pet owners, hunters, etc. The nonprofit organization’s mission was threefold: first, to educate the general public about the critical difference between animal rights and animal welfare; second, to promote the welfare of animals; and third, to support responsible animal owners and users who had been harmed by animal rights extremism, i.e., the careers of some researchers were destroyed by the propaganda distributed about their scientific endeavors.

The Animal Rights Movement

The modern animal rights movement originated in Great Britain following the Vietnam War. In 1975, Peter Singer provided a philosophical rationale for the movement in his book, Animal Liberation. At the movement’s core, is the philosophical belief that animals are sentient beings with rights equal to those of humans. As such, animals should not be used by people in any way, i.e., bred, sold, eaten, owned, worked, hunted, kept as pets, etc. In the case of dogs in particular, animal rights contends they should not be bred and sold nor should they be trained and used in dog sports, hunting game or worked in any context, i.e., therapy, police, war, service dogs, etc. Pet ownership is viewed as another form of exploitation. If all forms of “exploitation” as defined by animal rights extremists were stopped, dogs couldn’t be turned loose in the wild because habitat is unavailable and most would likely die anyway if left to survive on their own. Thus, the ultimate goal of the most extreme members of the animal rights movement is to force the species into extinction, along with all Continued on page 102

The

weather may still be frigid in many parts of the country but the canine legislation calendar has been heating up everywhere. Some bills and proposals have been pursued and tracked for months if not years and more have suddenly appeared as if overnight on dockets and agendas while yet others amazingly contain some strange combination of both old standards and quick hits, making it difficult to keep abreast of laws that can have deleterious effects on dogs, their breeders and owners. A Senate Bill in Tennessee was slipped into the calendar of the Senate Energy, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee this week (for Thursday, Feb. 26th) that, if enacted, will wipe out a “sunset clause” that was placed on The Tennessee Commercial Breeder Act (TCBA) bill that was passed in 2009 and went into effect on January 1, 2010. The intent of the bill was to license and regulate commercial breeders that kept more than 20 intact adult female cats and dogs. Proponents of the bill projected that the licensing, regulating and inspecting of these estimated 500 commercial breeders would result in a $1 million annual windfall for the state. However, the AKC reports that the actual number of licensed commercial breeders for fiscal year 2011-2012 was only 20 and that licensing revenue netted just $70,200, while the cost to administer the program was $365,600. That’s the kind of expense that would normally have taxpayers up in arms and railing against their legislators and elected officials. The sunset clause provision in the bill was inserted as protection in the event the projected incomes never materialized and stated, “The provisions of this act will terminate and expire on June 30, 2014.” So, in essence, the ‘trial basis’ of the TCBA would be terminated if it weren’t successful. Yet despite the evidence that the TCBA failed in its intentions and ignoring that the APHIS rules enacted in 2013 federally regulate those who sell pets over the Internet and transact pet sales sight unseen, making state regulation unnecessary and redundant, Tennessee State Bill 2468 would delete the sunset clause and the TCBA will remain in

full effect rather than terminating on June 30, 2014. A companion bill, House Bill 2385, has been assigned to the Tennessee House Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittee. If this motion has people around the country scratching their heads, Tennessee taxpayers must be pulling the hair out of theirs. Also on the fast track is a bill in the Iowa Senate that could greatly impact hobby breeders and fanciers and prevent them from participating in rescue operations. Current Iowa law defines a commercial breeder as one who sells, exchanges or leases dogs in return for “consideration”. The ambiguous term consideration, however, is not clearly defined, which is troublesome, as is the inclusion in the commercial breeder definition of “anyone who offers” to sell, exchange or lease a dog. (So, if the sale is never completed, only “offered”, does that make one a commercial breeder?) Exemptions to the definition of commercial breeder include those who keep dogs and cats for exhibition at shows, field or obedience trials, hunting or practice training. However, anyone who has four or more intact dogs and receives any kind of “consideration” for breeding would be considered a commercial breeder and must comply with commercial breeder regulations. This includes those who offer a stud dog for any compensation or “consideration” from the resulting litter. Iowans are urged to contact their State Senators to politely ask them to reconsider this extensive bill that will have far-reaching consequences. Also included in this bill is a provision that would prohibit commercial breeders from owning, operating, or maintaining a controlling interest in an animal shelter, which is defined as “an organization operated by a local humane society, animal welfare society or other nonprofit organization devoted to the welfare, protection, and humane treatment of animals that is used to receive, rescue, house and transfer animals.” This could greatly affect those who fall under the commercial breeder definition from serving as a foster home or getting involved in any rescue activities, and could also hinder the ability of parent club rescues to serve in this capacity if they are registered as a non-profit organization. This provision would seem to lessen the chances of healthy dogs being placed with responsible owners. As breeders have become accustomed to anytime a bill is drafted to license or regulate them, the Iowa bill also includes new regulations and requirements, many of which would be costly. Commercial breeders would have to pay a registration fee of $175, which then requires that they open their homes/ kennels to a mandatory inspection once a year. Any dog that happens to be on the property during an inspection will require another fee, starting at $100 per intact dog, and increasing to $2,500 depending on the number of dogs. The monies collected would be deposited into a fund to reimburse local authorities for expenses incurred

from the rescuing and maintaining of animals that have been abused, despite the fact that current law already allows for courts to require those accused of cruelty to post a bond for the care of the animals seized during the hearing. In addition to the egregious fees that breeders would be saddled with, they would also be susceptible to outrageous requirements for primary enclosures twice the size required by the USDA - by the end of 2015, and by January 1, 2016, all enclosures must be three times the current USDA requirement. If a breeder has more than 10 dogs, permanent, unfettered access to an attached outdoor run would also be mandated. These unnecessary, overly expensive requirements would surely cause breeders to reconsider their avocations. Dog lovers in the Hawkeye State should contact their State Senators immediately to voice their concerns over this bill. It’s not all bad news on the canine legislative front. In the Cornhusker State of Nebraska there is a bill pending that would put forth a much more reasonable and clearer definition of a commercial breeder. The current definition for a commercial dog breeder in Nebraska is anyone in the business of selling dogs who: • Owns or harbors four or more intact dogs or cats, • Sells/transfers at least 31 dogs and cats per year, • Owns dogs/cats that produce four or more litters per year, OR • Knowingly sells or leases dogs/cats for later retail sale or brokered trade. Legislative Bill 288 would change that definition to someone who in addition to owning four or more intact dogs and who must also at a minimum: • Sell/transfer at least 31 dogs a year AND • Produce four or more litters per year or • Knowingly sell dogs for later retail sale before being subject to commercial breeder laws. In contrast to the Iowa bill, the Nebraska bill involves a reasonable compromise and continues to protect the rights of hobby breeders, sportsmen and owners of intact dogs. Distinctions must be made between truly commercial operations and responsible hobby breeders and Nebraska Bill 288 recognizes that. It’s hoped not only that the bill will pass in Nebraska but that Iowa’s State Senators will come to the same sort of realization as well.

Most

of us know when and where our best friends were born. We remember their birthdays, their anniversaries and frequently exchange presents at Christmas. Yet, little is known about the origin of our true “best friends”. We neither know where it happened or when it occurred, although it is the subject of much speculation. However, we do know that dogs have been around for a very long time and were probably first domesticated somewhere between 30,000 and a hundred thousand years ago, either in Europe, the Middle East or China, depending on which group of scientists one believes. There is much interest in this important question and a lot of activity in this area. In contrast, the emergence of breeds was a more recent event that occurred around 5,000 years ago. Most owners of ancient breed dogs recognize the big leap between the “original dogs” and the development of specific dog breeds. Certainly, there are many ancient breeds. Notably, from the mid-east are Pharaoh Hounds, Salukis, Basenjis and Canaan Dogs. Which one of these breeds is the direct descendents of the “original dog” is not known. However, all of the aforementioned breeds have substantiated claims going back many thousands of years. The Pharaoh hounds have pictures on the walls of ancient Egyptian pyramids that date back at least 5,000 years. The first presence of 54 Dog News

Basenjis is documented in cave paintings in Libya that may date back as long as 6000 years ago. Canaan Dogs are thought to be the direct descendants of dog remains that were found in Ashkelon, Israel, an archeological site dating back about 5000 years. The dog bones were found among artifacts from 2,500 years ago, so it is likely that Canaan Dogs were already man’s companion at this time. The dog remains were carefully interred, suggesting that these dogs were held in high regard by the early Phoenician traders, as shown in the photo to the right. A relationship between the dog skeleton to the modern Canaan Dog is suspected based on the size of the dog. Furthermore, the size of the individual bones and the ratios of length to width are similar to those of Canaan Continued on page 110

A Report from the Hockey Capital of the World, Canada

TRUE North By Allison Foley

The 138th

Westminster Kennel Club dog show is in the books. The worldwide dog fancy, including those of us from the True North, made it to New York City and back with nary a scratch. Having attended the WKC show for many years, one can’t help notice that things are changing, not just the Piers but the culture of the show and how it is received by the public. Dog shows have hit the mainstream culture in recent years, articles in magazines about “Big Name Backers”, TV coverage and even CNN getting in on the act. This means for more publicity and more attention to our sport. It also means more unwanted attention from things like PETA (which the Madison Square Garden security did a great job of keeping away, as one security guard said as she was wanding me, “if they get out here this year it means one of us didn’t do our job!”). With everything that is going on can those of us in the True North be on a level playing field when it comes to big name events like WKC? And another question, do we want to? The culture of Canadian dog shows is actually much different than that of American dog shows. Yes, we have our versions of dog show royalty here. And indeed many Canadian dogs and Canadian people make a huge impact on the scene in the US, yet on another level will things ever be equal? And do we really want them to be? 56 Dog News

“The culture of Canadian dog shows is actually much different than that of American dog shows.”


As of February 26, 2014 the Top Dogs According to Canuck Dogs are:

1 AFGHAN HOUND I am sure that many people here think that we would want to be on a level playing field, especially when it comes to events like Westminster Kennel Club, but when you crunch the numbers, you may be just a little surprised! With an entry of 115 Canadian dogs out of the 2809 total entry, this is approximately 4% of the total entry coming (this is actually the total amount of dogs entered that had a Canadian Postal code on their entries, there are of course many of those dogs that were bred in the US or elsewhere, just as there were many Canadian Bred dogs that are now owned/co-owned in the US, including the Portuguese Water dog, Matisse, which won the working group). With 3 of the 39 judges at WKC being Canadian born, that is 7.6% of the total judges. I could only do handlers from the handlers that had multi breed benching but if we use that number as a whole then approximately 9.5% of handlers there were Canadian born. That is actually quite a small percentage so lets see how things ended up. As we said earlier, the winner of the working group was indeed a Canadian bred and co-owned dog. The Best in Show judge, Ms. Betty Leininger, is a Canadian born girl (we are going to take credit for her whenever we can!) and the Handler of the Reserve Best In Show Poodle, Ally, is also Canadian born!

S

o lets compare. Canadian entered dogs equal 4% of the total entry, Canadian Judges equal 7.6% of the total judges officiating at WKC. Canadian handlers equal 9.5% of the total handlers. If we say that there are 9 MAJOR wins (7 group firsts, Best In Show and Reserve Best In Show), then out of the major wins 2 of the major wins (working group and RBIS ) were won by a dog or handler that were Canadian born. This is a whopping 22%!!! BIS was judged by a Canadian so again 22% (2 of the major awards BIS and RBIS)!! So from these numbers we must proudly say that we do not want to be on a level playing field! Whew, that was a lot of math! On another note dog shows here have finally begun. That’s it from the True North!

restaurants, shops and theatres in the world. But of course they were proved wrong and Crufts prospered at its new Midlands home where a go-ahead team have continued to market the show like no other. Today many overseas visitors are happy to stay in London and take the easy train-ride to the NEC (less than 2 hours) so they get the best of both worlds, or combine four days in Birmingham with a few days in London at either end of the show. In recent years, since foreign dogs have been able to compete, the indefatigable and charming Sue Sampson has been promoting Crufts overseas and the results are clear to see. This year alone there will be more than 2,500 dogs from other countries competing. Speak to most Brits and they have a love-hate relationship with the only show that is directly run by The Kennel Club. We all moan about it (and as an exhibitor it was always my least favourite show) but everyone wants to be there and every year thousands of exhibitors spend thousands of pounds just to ensure that their dogs qualify for this show of shows. The show has, in many ways, become a victim of its own popularity. It is now to all intents and purposes a trade show with dogs. Some first time visitors claim they have been at the show for half an hour before they spot a dog, the judging rings seemingly secreted behind a seething mass of trade stands, each more lavish than the last. At Crufts there are “concessions” galore – I often wonder how many squeeze mops someone has to sell just to get back the stand rental, but at Crufts you will find all manner of merchandise, and not all of it dogrelated believe me. The first thing that hits the first time visitor to Crufts is the sheer magnitude of it. We often joke in our sainted isle that “everything’s bigger in America” but this certainly doesn’t apply to dog shows. For many years there was the inevitable comparison between Crufts and Westminster. In reality of course they were as similar as chalk and cheese. Indeed I smiled when I heard

Brace Yourself an American friend saying earlier this year, “Westminster isn’t a dog show – it’s a parade of last year’s winners”! Westminster is a show of the elite, a dog show and nothing but a dog show ... but a dog show that centres on the crème-de-la-crème. However, in recent years the AKC has developed its National Championship event very much along Crufts lines, and this all-encompassing promotional vehicle for the dog in all its guises can be much more realistically likened to Crufts than Westminster ever has or will be. When you come to Crufts you have to plan your strategy. If you are coming as a dog person interested in all breeds you will want to spend four days at the show. Of course you will, why wouldn’t you? And you will walk more miles than you do in the average month so the first priority is comfortable shoes. The show is set out in five halls that are laid out in a horseshoe arrangement around the piazza. Most people have been at the show for days before they realise they can actually shortcut through the piazza to get from Hall 1 to Hall 5 rather than trek through the entire maze. At the show you will see Agility, Junior Showmanship, Good Citizen Displays, Discover Dogs, Flyball, Dancing with Dogs, Gundog demonstrations and Obedience competition of the highest possible level. If you search hard you will also find breed-judging rings.

If you are the typical one-breed person who plans to spend one day watching your breed, one day shopping, and - if you haven’t expired one day queuing in the vague hope of securing a Stand ticket to watch Best in Show, get there early on your breed day. Usually it’s standing room only around the most popular breeds, and watching one breed will in many cases take up your whole day if you want to study the dogs from Puppy Dog through Open Bitch. Despite many people claiming that Crufts isn’t a “proper” dog show, and endless foreigners preferring to attend Windsor or the Welsh Kennel Club in the summer as a typical no-frills dog show, the Crufts breed entries prove categorically that it IS special and that the exhibitors all want to be there. This year two new breeds are scheduled for the first time at Crufts; Eurasiers have 41 dogs entered on their debut with breed classes, and Catalan Sheepdogs 29. To many Americans, the size of the Crufts breed entries can only be likened to their major breed specialities at home. Just study some of these figures in breeds where more than a hundred dogs have been entered … 179 Alaskan Malamutes, 211 Bernese Mountain Dogs, 222 Boxers, 151 Bullmastiffs, 197 Dobermanns, 163 Great Danes, 113 Leonbergers, 181 Newfoundlands, 204 Rottweilers and 186 Siberian Huskies in the Working Group alone … but be prepared for some culture shocks as regards type in some breeds. Americans often have difficulty recognising our Siberians as being the same breed! Incredible is the entry of 164 Dogues de Bordeaux, a breed that does not as yet have Challenge Certificate status and moreover is on the controversial “High Profile Breed” list. In our Pastoral Group – Herding to you – you will also find some staggering entries. Here we have 161 Australian Shepherds, 316 Bearded Collies, 107 Belgian Tervuerens, 301 Continued on page 62

Border Collies, 231 Rough Collies, 123 German Shepherd Dogs, 111 Old English Sheepdogs, 159 Samoyeds, 278 Shetland Sheepdogs and 129 Pembroke Welsh Corgis. That bastion of British dogdom – the Terrier group – has been very much depleted at home in recent years. The 2006 Crufts made a huge statement to the world when we had four foreign dogs placing 1-4 in the Terrier Group. We still have a handful of excellent dogs in the terrier breeds but few of the trimmed terrier breeds seem to contain great depth in numbers. Compare this with Montgomery and it is clear to understand why these days many Brits are turning to the US to find a potential winner … and many have done so with great results. Some of our Terrier entries at Crufts this year will be viewed by foreigners as disappointing, but we can still manage respectable numbers in some breeds in the group – 303 Borders (this breed has just one judge so Melanie Lewis has a marathon day ahead of her), 128 Cairns, 110 Parson Russells, 105 Scottish Terriers, 109 Soft Coated Wheatens – if not necessarily presented “internationally” - an amazing 367 Staffordshire Bulls and 137 West Highland Whites are enough to guarantee heaving ringsides. Then we come to the Hounds – 252 Afghan Hounds, 116 Basset Hounds, 222 Beagles (13s and 15s being shown together remember, though be prepared to see plenty of “16s”!), 104 Borzoi, 110 (Scottish) Deerhounds, 143 Irish Wolfhounds, 221 Rhodesian Ridgebacks, 140 Salukis and a daunting no less than 417 Whippets (an exact repeat of the 2009 entry). Remember that here in the UK we show Dachshunds in six varieties (two sizes, three coats) – unlike FCI countries which have three sizes and three coats and a group devoted to the Dachshund breed. Miniature Longs have 119 dogs entered, Mini Smooths 156 and Mini Wires 119.

Brace Yourself It remains sad that the breed that inspired the statue that once stood outside the Kennel Club building – the English Foxhound – has only managed six entries, but the breed is not awarded CCs, is not an “everyman” dog and there has been a reluctance on the part of the hunting packs to release dogs for possible KC registration, lest the “show” people should ruin the breed! One of the strange anomalies that arise out of the differences in international classification of our breeds is that we can have a top winning Non Sporting dog in the USA becoming Britain’s Top Toy dog and later Top Dog of all breeds as has happened in the past. I speak of course of a Bichon Frisé, in which breed there are 136 entered. The Bichon’s more rustic cousin, the Bolognese, has not yet charmed the US and in this country the breed does not yet have CCs available, but there are still 53 entered at Crufts. Somehow I doubt whether they will catch on in the States – far too many itchy fingers there to show dogs with such a natural looking coat! As for the rest of the Toy breeds the 335 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels will prove a heavy day for some breed-watchers. Then we have 260 Longcoat Chihuahuas and 167 Smooths, 208 Chinese Cresteds, 126 Japanese Chins, 131 King Charles (an incred-

ible entry for “English Toy Spaniels”), 246 Papillons, 152 Pomeranians, 256 Pugs and 102 Yorkshire Terriers. We don’t as yet give Havanese CCs but there are still 88 entered. Don’t think you’ll find any corded though! Our Utility Group more or less corresponds with your Non Sporting though there are some differences – we include your “terrier”, the Miniature Schnauzer and as I said, we classify the Bichon as a Toy. We have 123 “American” Akitas entered – but just 48 of the Japanese Akita Inu. Then there are 247 Bulldogs, 200 Dalmatians, 202 French Bulldogs, 102 Japanese Shiba Inu, 159 Lhasa Apsos, 157 Miniature Schnauzers (not Terriers in the UK remember) and in the Poodles we have 143 Standards, the other two sizes of Poodle failing to reach the hundred mark. Then there are 179 Shih Tzu (most of which will be presented in a far less exaggerated fashion than you are used to), 146 Tibetan Spaniels and 215 Tibetan Terriers. Gundogs – or Sporting Dogs in American parlance - have as always produced some of the hugest entries at the show, and you may be pleased or otherwise to see so many correctly balanced animals, with correct outlines and typical and functional angulation. As yet the British gundogs have not become too handicapped by the apparent American love of ski-slope toplines and almost kneeling rear angulation ... but give it time, God forbid! English Setters have drawn 204 dogs whereas there are 102 German Shorthaired Pointers, 193 Gordon Setters, 159 Hungarian Vizslas, 376 Irish Setters (most of whom will actually have heads that do look like Irish Setters!), 138 Italian Spinoni, 237 Pointers, 374 Flat Coats, no less than 599 Golden Retrievers (we still have great type even if so many of them can’t move!), 548 Labradors, 118 Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers (this breed only recently achieving CC status), 130 American Cockers (when in Rome – and let me warn you now … anyone heard around our COCKER ring referring to Cocker Spaniels as “Engies” will be taken out and publicly flogged!) but 366 Cockers – Cocker Spaniels that is, NOT English Cockers!

and you have one hell of a day for “Sporting” people. Obviously with these numbers, some of the breeds have two judges – one for dogs and one for bitches. BOB is judged by both judges and if they can’t agree the scheduled referee is called in to decide, this ordinarily being the relevant group judge. Well, you may as well have the dog you prefer in your group! And talking of judges, remember that the vast majority of the judges at this show will be breeder-judges. It is generally assumed that Crufts honours judges who have served their time and to many judges a Crufts appointment is considered to be the pinnacle of their career, but any perceived “policy” does seem to fall down when there are occasional glaring omissions, both at breed and group level. For many years conservative Little Britain was both insulated and isolated by its island status and rigid quarantine laws. Since the advent of the pet passport and freer travel for suitably protected dogs, Crufts has opened its doors to most of the world and has actively encouraged overseas qualification. Personally I am delighted that our Kennel Club was so keen to dispel any myths about the major spoils in British dogdom being jealously guarded and kept for our own. When Crufts brought in the qualifier for our own dogs, the show lost much of its excitement, as all the dogs will have been seen before. In the good old days many clever breeders held back a potential star so that it could debut at Crufts, and many stories are told of unseen great ones making their first appearance at the big show, flying through the classes and winning the breed. When foreign dogs were allowed to enter Crufts, an element of surprise was reintroduced to the show as now hardened Brits could see dogs for the very first time. Many of the foreign challengers met with great success, whilst others failed to make their expected impact. It has to be said that British reserve is such that as a nation we do not take kindly to brash pre-show publicity announcing in not such a subtle fashion that

Brace Yourself a big winning dog is planning to take Crufts in as part of its campaign. Far from helping the dog’s chances, I know full well that some of our judges would be put off rather than impressed. Certainly the bid by some overseas giants to take on the might of a Crufts entry helps create the most electric of atmospheres around the breed rings. If you’ve not been to a British dog show before you are in for some surprises – you will see dogs handled in a very lackadaisical fashion, some will not be presented to within an inch of their life and some of the judges may give the impression of going for a walk in the park with all the time in the world. Lots of handlers will be dressed rather casually (you should have seen them twenty years ago!) You will see a lot of judging where type would appear to be all that matters, and movement is a small consideration. You will see lots of dogs winning top honours that do not display extrovert showmanship but may be excellent examples of their breed nonetheless. When you watch breed judging you will usually only hear raucous applause when a big winner gets dumped – it’s the British way – we love to see those high-flyers get their comeuppance. A great dog who has had it all its own way for the past year and who wins the breed in sparkling form is likely to get only a muted reception from the ringside – Westminster this isn’t! We love the underdog, and

no matter how unworthy the recipient may be, a rank outsider of indifferent merit who rises to the top is guaranteed to get the crowds clapping their hands raw. Once the groups get underway, British reserve is taxed to the limit. This show produces applause like no other – mainly from the public who are rooting for “their” breed, but as with the breed judging it’s not usually the great winners that get the crowd batting for them. Just like the days of the guillotine the majority of group-watchers are secretly longing for the top dogs to take a tumble, as they so often do at this show. Heaven forbid that a judge should do something that could ever be construed as predictable. The seating in the tiered stands for group judging is both open and free but on BIS night tickets are like hens’ teeth so if you haven’t booked in advance pray that you know someone who knows someone … otherwise you will have to settle for one of the wide-screen displays dotted around the venue. Be sure to visit the Overseas Visitors’ Lounge. The ladies there manage to smile for four days despite the most inane requests from foreigners. They will give you a coffee and somewhere to sit and let your feet get a second wind. You will find it all frustrating, riveting, exhausting and exasperating, yet thrilling. You will be blown away with the enormity of it all, and all I can wish you is just one fraction of the sense of excitement that I still feel every time I set foot in this incredible show. The world’s biggest, possibly. The world’s most famous, yes. The world’s best? … I will leave you to decide. Of course the cursed vet checks of the BOB winners in a handful of “High Profile” breeds will continue this year and the newshounds will be keen to see which, if any, of these will be deemed fit enough to proceed to the group. Another controversial aspect of the show is that legally docked dogs cannot be entered as the public pays for admission. Just don’t ask me to explain the logic of this as the law of the land is such that, were admission free, they could compete. Well, this is Britain … we are expected to be eccentric!

The Staffordshire

Bull Terrier and its Ancestors

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier as we know it is a ‘new’ breed but its ancestors are among some of the oldest. Paintings I have seen of the pied bitch Rose and her brindle daughter Nettle are examples from the first quarter of the 19th century that have a striking resemblance to today’s Stafford. Their claim to fame is that they were two of three dogs that took part in the infamous ‘Warwick Lion Fight’ in 1825 against a virtually tame Lion named Wallace.

BY NICK WATERS

I

t was a well reported fight, even ‘The Times’ of the day reported it in all its brutality. It heralded the end of such cruel sports for the general public became so outraged at the promotion of such baiting spectacles the matter was raised in Parliament. Eventually in 1835, the baiting of animals in Britain was abolished by an Act of Parliament. ‘The Staffordshire Bull Terrier and its Ancestors’ is the title of the current exhibition at the Kennel Club in London which runs until the 20th June. It is in effect an exhibition in three parts; the early years of baiting and fighting dogs; the dogs and characters, many from the Black Country around Wolverhapton, who helped mould the breed in the early 20th century, and the Stafford of the show ring from the middle years of the 20th century. 68 Dog News

Some of the exhibits from the early years would fit comfortably into an exhibition on the ancestors of the Bulldog, Bull Terrier, the extinct White English Terrier, the American Stafford and even the Manchester Terrier and its diminutive cousin. Many of these are well-known images; Henry Alken’s engraving of Crab; Tom and Jerry in the Westminster Pit; Henry Bernard Chalon’s Wasp, Child and Billy; Abraham Cooper’s Crib and Rosa and a version of The Bull Broke


Loose which could well represent the once popular sports of bull-running or bull-baiting in open ground. There are though some early images that most visiting the exhibition will be seeing for the first time; among them a canvas of a white dog in a stable from the school of Samuel Raven and a Continental oil on board of two puppies and their tethered mother who is wearing a badger hair collar one normally associates with the French Bulldog. Two of the three dimensional exhibits from this period are the well-known bronze by Charles Valton of a fighting dog with its front paws on a fence and tucked away in the library, away from the exhibition but worth searching for, a silver model on a plinth of ‘Dog Bob’ who allegedly killed 50 rats in three minutes 11 seconds in August 1860. The photographs, carte de visites and cabinet cards from the early years of the 20th century and the closing years of the 18th century, small as this section is, make the exhibition for me. They form a great social record of the time and the characters who owned these dogs, mostly from poor, working-class backgrounds in some of the rough areas of middle England. They treasured and looked after their dogs, some probably for reasons that would be anathema to most of us today.

M

oving on well into the 20th century and there is no shortage of art and collectables on this now universally popular breed. Prints and pictures by some of Britain’s most popular published artists including Vic Granger, Pollyanna Pickering, Paul Doyle and Maria Heskins. Sculpture in various forms feature a dog riding a motorbike by Alison Lingley, and models by Beswick, Patsi Ann, North Light, John Stanbridge and Jane Howse. Jane Howse is a little known and in my opinion a very underrated sculptress who owned the breed and lived in Wolverhampton, the area from where the breed came. She exhibited in a very limited way, mostly in the 1960s and her artistic output was virtually confined to the Stafford. She knew the breed well and captured its character like few other artists. The number of pieces by Mrs. Howse in the exhibition is virtually a definitive exhibition of her work and was a pleasure to see. The versatility of the modern Stafford is exemplified in a portrait by Liz Board of Beraka Hurricane of Copyhold. ‘Busby’ qualified in Working Trials and Obedience, competed in a tracking match against Bloodhounds, demonstrated obedience at Crufts and in 2007 his photograph was used as the main feature on the BBC Crufts website.

er- and if you already were approved to judge a few breeds you could add the breeds concerned to your CV. No provisional status involved. I think that makes sense. If you already judge one or several groups and are found to do it well, you have in my opinion proved that you are able to digest information, read breed standards and absorb the finer points of dogs in general. In all groups there are huge diversities of breeds and if you for instance have proved yourself as a good judge of the Non Sporting Group, I think you have proved that you “have an eye” and can be advanced in the system without major risks. Maybe the provisional system could still be in operation to keep you on the straight and narrow during your time “on Probation”. Since moving over here I have attended a few seminars and it is nearly amusing that our Canadian friends go back home and with a certificate of attending these seminars immediately can add the breeds concerned to their list- and a few weeks later judge them in the USA! But for some reason I don’t think it is necessarily a bad thing. In any company or organization there will be people who achieve promotion and are considered more “upwardly mobile” than others- even colleagues with more impressive formal education. At the AKC show in Orlando standing with a group of people we watched a young American guy on the “fast forward” list doing an outstanding job. (He must have done as we all agreed!) While next door a more seasoned and experienced judge consistently missed the obvious winners. According to our taste that is. In my opinion no doubt: One of them would be moved even faster forward and the other recommended to take early retirement. But now that we are all just incognito and the quality of work you do probably doesn’t matter. I must finish by stating that in many ways I understand that people suspected there was an amount of favoritism or nepotism at times in the old system. Maybe at times there were, we are all human beings, but I think that every single person involved in the previous system still did their best to be neutral and objective. Well, there will never be a perfect world wouldn’t it just be boring if we all agreed about everything all the time? But what about just COMMON SENSE?

Two girls with their mom talking about Broadway shows and shopping---no. BEE--ATCH---definitely no. Two young college girls---no. Middle-aged man reading Asian comic book--no. NERVOUS-LOOKING OLDER LADY (NOLIF) dressed in a fur coat--maybe. “Passengers traveling on 98 The Silver Meteor to Penn Station, you may proceed to the Track. Please have your tickets out and ready for viewing. Thank you and have a pleasant journey,” LORI politely informs from behind the ticket counter. Man-bag, DROID, and I move forward alongside of NOLIF. “Well, she certainly looks like she could be a dog show person---the one that only goes to the Big Apple and wears the creature once a year. I am sure there are no restrictions to wearing fur in NYC, unless it is made out of endangered species such as leopard, and personally, I have no problem with people wearing fur, and, Honey, your fur looks regal and glamorous, but you really need to work on the anxiety-ridden expression,” I attempt to clairvoyantly express in her direction. Reaching with my right hand, I display the computer-generated ticket from the screen of my DROID for the conductor. Using a handheld scanner, he moves the laser across DROID and scans the barcode that is displayed on the screen. “Amazing, however I surely do miss the sound of the handheld-paper-hole punch,” the Conductor expresses. One less level of stimulation caused by the use of technology, if only technology provided the same results for BEE--ATCH, who continues to converse with her BOO directly behind me. I enter the train car, hoping to hell that BEE---ATCH sits nowhere near my assigned seat. My seat is six rows up and to the left. I stop, take off my coat, and lower myself into my comfortable seat. BEE---ATCH continues past me and enters the next car. “Thank God! Hallelujah!” NOLIF sits directly across from me. Raising the corners of my mouth slightly upward, I nod my

head in her direction as she lowers herself in her seat. She remains enshrouded in the fur coat. I can tell from her expression that she is living in fear of me leaping forward and covering her precious garment with florescent spray paint. “Good morning! Your coat is just beautiful.” I greet with hopes of calming the poor soul. “Thank you,” she replies. NOLIF relaxes, drops her shoulders, unties the scarf from around her neck and begins rummaging through her handbag. She retrieves a gold, vintage compact with blossoms and butterflies on the lid. NOLIF spends several minutes examining her face in the small, round mirror, while at the same time caressing her cheeks, her forehead, her chin and neck areas with the small round pad. I am aware of my inability to stop staring, but I cannot seem to pull myself away from watching the performance and her personal transformation. I watch NOLIF and cannot help reflect on the era between the wars when personal items were artistically made and the style of the accessory was just as important as th face powder and lipstick that she liberally applies, making a great show for my personal entertainment on the train.

T

he Silver Meteor reaches top speed. NOLIF transitions from Hollywood makeover to Suduko, and I determine it is time to head to the dining car for a hot cup of coffee and freshly prepared breakfast. I make my way through to the back of the train, through four additional coaches, full of passengers, to the dining car. The décor in the dining room instantly evokes an image of Starlight Express, the rock musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber that follows a child’s dream in which his toy train comes to life. Little lights sparkle everywhere, including the ceiling and I am greeted by a pastel colored wall and a burly steward by the name of Earl. “Are you alone?” Pondering his question, I look behind me to make sure NOLIF and BEE---ATCH have not followed me to the dining car. “Yes, I am alone---seating for one,” I offer. “Go sit at the second table on the right with the other single gentleman,” Earl instructs. “Sh#$) (*^%#$(&---so much for my quiet, relaxing breakfast. I will keep to myself and pray my dining companion chooses to keep his mouth shut.” I slide into the booth. No sooner do I sit down, does an arm reach across

the table. “Hello, my name is Hal, I am from Florida---originally from Jersey. Nice to meet you. I just love train travel and the opportunity to meet knew, interesting people.” “OMG--get the gun and shoot me now---one big bullet directly into my skull,” I ask of anyone in the ethosphere who might assist in putting me out of my misery. I raise my head and make eye contact with Hal. Short, glasses, male-patterned baldness, early to mid- seventies, retired, lonely, never meets a stranger and from his accent is either originally from New York or New Jersey. “I am sorry I did not get your name,” Hal remarks. “My apologies, my name is Michael. Good morning.” “Where you headed?” Hal asks. “I am going to New York City for a couple of days.” “Oh, me too--I’ve been on the train overnight from Florida. I’m originally from Jersey, I’m Italian---moved to the sunshine state twenty-two years ago and I love it. I’m retired but I still dabble in real estate development. I’m single, my son lives near me. He’s not married and he lives with his dogs.” Hal continues to string words and thoughts together. I half listen, taking comfort in the fresh cup of hot coffee that Earl slides across the table to my eager, waiting fingertips. “The coffee is very good. Do you know what you are going to order? I am having two eggs, bacon and toast.” “Actually Hal, I haven’t decided yet,” I reply, wondering if I should order a Hemlock cocktail. I continue to peruse the menu: Omelet Selection ....$11.25 Freshly made three egg omelet served plain, topped with cheddar or Swiss cheese, filled with today’s fresh vegetable filling or with both. Served with roasted potatoes or grits, whole wheat biscuit, croissant or cinnamon raisin bread. (731 cal.) (Egg substitute available upon request) (551 cal.) “Hey Earl---my friend Michael here is ready to order. It would be nice if we would could eat together.” Hal champions my breakfast order, facilitating the process with Earl. “I would like the Omelet, Swiss cheese, with the fresh vegetables and roasted potatoes. No bread,” I order. “Earl, bring us both fresh coffee, too--You’re the man,” Hal adds to my order and continues to talk. “OK, enough about me. Why are you going to New York?” I immediately sense the need to make up some wild-ass story about pig farming, or better yet… tell Hal Continued on page 78

that I am traveling with NOLIF in an attempt to market “castorino”, which is made from the fur of a noxious non-native pest that is multiplying without restraint and destroying thousands of acres of US wetlands… but settle on the truth. “I am going to NY to emcee the Purina Pro Plan, Show Dogs of the Year Award Dinner.” “WOW! Will it be on TV? That’s right the Westminster Dog Show is this week. OMG – like I said before you never know who you are going to meet on the train. Are you a judge? Do you breed? What kind of dogs do you have?” Hal cannot help himself and he cannot shut up. “I am a judge, but I am not judging at Westminster. I will only be spending the weekend in NY as I have to get back to work on Monday. Tell me Hal why are you going to NY?” I humbly ask in order to distract Hal away from the dog judging conversation. “I am meeting my girlfriend. We are going to enjoy several nights in the city and we are going to see Phantom of the Opera.” “Hal, that is wonderful – how long have you and your girlfriend been dating?” I continue to drive the conversation away from my dog judging. “Well, actually we have never met. I met her online, she’s from Russia. This will be our first date.” In response, I choke on the small piece of onion that dangles on the back of my tongue, quickly snatching the glass of water for relief. “We have been corresponding for over nine months,” he continues. “Her name is Ludmila, she’s thirty years younger and I sure hope I can keep up with her, if you know what I mean---nothing the little blue pill can’t take care of. Here, look at her picture.” Hal produces his I-Phone and proudly shares a female image, dressed in red, full-figured, strong features, smiling, wearing plenty of makeup. “Lovely!” I offer, not knowing what else to say and not knowing where to go next with the conversation. I divert an awkward situation, by driving our little morning chat back to me and the dog show. “So, Hal maybe you and Ludmila will have time to go to the dog show while you’re in town.” “Hell, I hope not, if we have any spare time, it’s not going to be spent looking at dogs.” Hal’s little bald head bobs up and down with joy at the thought of private time with Ludmila. He continues, “If my son was here he would pass up five good-looking Russian girls for an opportunity to look at dogs. He is a real dog lover. He and his male friend breed registered Chihweenies. As a 78 Dog News

Trains, Planes and Dogs matter of fact – they have a waiting list of people trying to buy them.” I had spent the majority of the morning keeping any and all OBE outof-body-experiences at bay and I can tell you BEE---ATCH and NOLIF have not made it easy. But, Hal, his Russian girlfriend, and his son who breeds registered Chihweenies throw me over the deep edge. I am speechless. I try to pull myself together. I sit facing a halfeaten Swiss cheese omelet, visualizing what in the hell a Chihweenie might be. I frame, in the back of mind, a visual image of Hal’s son and his male friend, together with a house full of Chihweenies jumping all over the place. “It all started when my son, Tony, met Eduardo. They moved in together, along with my son’s female Miniature Dachshund named Della and Eduardo’s male Chihuahua named Commando. The next thing you know--- Commando nails Della. Della has five puppies and the rest is history. I gotta say at $500.00 each they have a good thing going for the two of them. I really think they need to get some of the younger ones in the show ring.” Hal says, trying to lure me back into the conversation. At a total loss for word, I signal EARL to bring me my check. “Listen if you are ever in Florida judging, please come stay at my house. I know Tony would love the opportunity to meet a genuine Dog Judge.” Hal hands me his business card. I slide the card into the front pocket of my shirt. Hal continues to verbalize any and all mental thoughts. I sign the credit card slip, rise from the booth and slowly exit the Starlight Express. While approaching my seat and I cannot help notice NOLIF. She is asleep, drooped in her seat, resembling a powdered Vienna sausage stuffed in a fur blanket. There is a distinct line of caked facial powder where skin meets hairline. I am half-tempted to pull her gold butterfly compact case from the purse between her legs and assist with a smoother transition lines. I choose the path of least resistance, sit down and read for the duration of the train trip.

O

ur arrival in New York, despite a late departure, is only fifteen minutes behind schedule. “Welcome to New York---Penn Station. Please be careful exiting the train. Checked baggage can be collected up the escalator and to your left. BEE--ATCH wastes no time pushing and shoving her way through the various cars to our exit point. I wait patiently for NOLIF to collect her belongings. I offer to assist her with her carry-on, while she exits onto the platform. No sooner do her front feet hit cold concrete, then she pulls her cell phone from her handbag

and activates a call, leaving me to hold her bag while standing on the platform. “Be a dear and just wait for a minute, and if you don’t mind, would you help me with my bag up the stairs?” NOLIF holds her phone towards her mouth as if speaking into a walkie-talkie. “Honey, I am here at Penn Station.” The reply is immediate, “Momma – you just go up the stairs and walk across the street to the Hotel Pennsylvania. I will meet you in the lobby.” NOLIF, like BEE----ATCH, does not bother to silence her call; everyone around us is welcomed to the conversation. “I will see you soon. Oh…and what time to the dogs go in the ring tomorrow? (Zounds! I was right…she is a dog show person.) I hope I have a little time to rest my tired body from this long trip – it was exhausting.” NOLIF turns and looks up. “Sir – thank you for helping me with my bag, it is so kind of you to offer.” “I offered to get your furryself off the train not to the hotel.” I mutter under my breath through tightly clenched teeth. “I’m meeting my daughter for the Westminster Dog Show. She is showing her Yorkshire Terrier.” I acknowledge her by raising the corners of my mouth slightly upward and by nodding my head. “Now what’s a polite gentleman, such as you, traveling alone, doing in NY?” Feeling the urge to flee and painfully aware there is nowhere to run but up the escalator I reply: “I am actually traveling with my business partner Hal. I am meeting him upstairs. We are in New York to market ‘Castorino,’ or better known as ‘little beaver’. It is fashion week and we are hoping it takes off as a new fur for fashion wear. It is made from the fur of a noxious non-native pest that is destroying thousands of acres of US wetlands. The little devils replicate as fast as bunnies.” NOLIF, totally perplexed and confused, replies, “Oh, well, that’s nice.” The escalator transports us up and into Penn Station Central. I see my friend HAL. In order to bring a bit of authenticity to my previous fabrication, I wave, saying, “Hi HAL!” NOLIF reaches for the handle of her rolling carry-on. “Good luck at the dog show,” I offer. “And, good luck to you and HAL with your little beavers,” NOLIF responds and moves quickly to the right to meet her daughter at the Hotel Pennsylvania. HAL waves and walks to the left to meet Ludmila for an exciting weekend of international lust. I move straight forward to meet BIG MICHAEL for a couple of fun days in the city--thankful for not having to take my shoes off, for not separating my electronics, for not limiting my carry-on luggage, for not paying extra for checked luggage, for not putting liquids in 3.4 oz. containers, for not subjecting myself to body scans, for not testing for explosives, for not having to stay seated, and for having a choice between Trains, Planes and Dogs.

Manila, ThePhilippines 2014

By Desmond J. Murphy

fter close to 24 hours of traveling time I cannot believe I have boarded a plane in Narita for the next leg to Manila with a burst of renewed energy. It could probably be that I slept a good ten hours of the fourteen-hour flight. This connection is only scheduled to be a four-hour fight, thank God, since I am in a middle seat at the back of the plane. Luckily from Newark to Narita I had an aisle seat with an empty seat next to me. I must say United tries to keep an empty seat next to me unless the flight is completely sold out.

THE LOBBY OF THE Richmonde Hotel, manilla


E

arly in 2012 I received an invitation from Dinky Santos to judge in Manila in January of 2014. I already had an assignment in Bangkok for the same weekend. I was so pleased when the invitation was reissued for January 23-24-2526 of 2014. Having never been to the Philippines, I knew this would be a great adventure for me. I have judged quite a bit in Asia in the past few years. These assignments have included Taiwan, China, Japan, Thailand and Indonesia. As with all travel you take the good with the bad. They have not turned on the air yet and have just announced there is a delay in departing. A passenger has not boarded the plane so their luggage will have to be taken off the plane. Good news, the missing passenger has allowed me to move to an aisle seat. My new seat 35B is the only seat on the plane that opened up. As soon as I was moving seats a lovely young flight attendant was helping me with my stuff. I am always amazed how gracious the young Japanese ladies are to us elderly Americans. With most foreign assignments the details of the show can be pretty minimal before the start of the show. The Circuit of the Philippines is very much the exception to the norm. The pre publicity and detail of the show has been stellar. The show takes place on Thursday Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are three championship shows held each day, so this totals 12 chances to win a championship title. Several other countries are holding shows over the circuit so this allows the possibility to attain an International Championship during the fourday weekend. In order to gain an international Championship you have to acquire a championship from three different countries that are recognized by the FCI. I just read where Egypt has been given full status by FCI, which makes

for 89 different countries having full recognition. The FCI has to be commended in bringing the sport closer and closer together. With AKC becoming more and more lenient about territorial rights where shows can be held outside of their region, I suspect they will allow clubs to use available venues in Canada and Mexico. This could allow exhibitors to acquire AKC points on the same dog as Canadian or Mexican points. I am sure this sounds far fetched to some, but not long ago, we would have never thought two shows per day would be possible. We allow clubs to hold shows in venues several states away. We also have seen where AKC clubs and United Kennel Club have shared the same venue for a long four-day weekend. This has given exhibitors a chance to show at UKC shows and

& E has staged three magnificent shows and each show has only outdone what the legendary Mrs. Dodge accomplished. The M & E show in 2015 promises to be even better than ever. Details are being worked on for an attraction that will make the 2015 show an even more spectacular event. Hopefully the details will be finalized before the meeting in New York and Wayne can make the announcement. The connecting flight from Narita to Manila was on ANA airlines and edible food was most welcomed after the long United flight, which offered three meals with each one being worse than the other. ANA also offered free drinks and the Cabernet call Arts was especially good. The people in charge of food at United should take a lesson from the Asian airlines on how to cater food that is not so deplorable. Cold sandwiches or salads with soup would be much more enjoyable than the hot entrees offered. When I cleared immigration in Manila I was going down an escalator to the baggage area and spotted a young man holding a sign with my name. I was so relieved that the transport company was waiting for me. While waiting for my bag, which was the last to arrive, I was a bit confused when he asked if someone was meeting me. Thinking he was my transport, I inquired who he was. He informed me he was with the city tourism organization and was enlisted to help me locate and assist with getting my luggage through customs. This was the first time I had ever witnessed this service in all the years I have been traveling around the world. When we cleared customs the young man spotted a young lady holding a sign with my name. He turned me over to her and I presumed she was my driver. No, she was the one that was coordinating the judges with the different drivers. She was immediately on the phone and ushered my luggage and me outside where the driver was waiting for me to take me to the Richmonde Hotel. The young man from the tourism association also had a lei for me to wear which made me feel extra welcome. By the time I exited the airport it was after 11:00 PM, which meant the traffic was very light and we were at the hotel shortly after 11:30 PM. As the

I am sure when Dinky Santos came up with the idea of the Philippines Circuit many probably thought he was aiming for the sky. When Ron Menaker came up with the AKC/ Eukanuba concept nobody would have dreamed what it would grow to be today. Dinky, like Ron, knows hard work; great dedication can make for great shows to happen. I remember over twenty years ago at a party at Kate Seaman’s, Wayne Ferguson brought up the idea about reviving Morris & Essex. Most people were negative, feeling a show of the likes that Mrs. Dodge staged could never be done again in the US. Wayne, thank God, believed in what most people thought to be the impossible dream and put that dream into reality. Since then M

Is Your Breed “Vulnerable”? Continued FROM page 30

Now, according to the old playbook, we, as “responsible breeders” sold puppies on limited registration or with spay/neuter contracts. We did not breed every puppy in a litter. We didn’t have to because there were lots of puppies being produced and we could pick and choose. Even as more and more health and genetic tests became available, we could toss out any dog who had the slightest problem we didn’t like. And you know what happened? We now have fewer and fewer dogs being bred and fewer puppies being registered. I think, when we see those individual breed statistics again, we will find that many breeds are looking at low numbers. If we want to save our breeds, we have to change our thinking and our tactics. • No more spay/neuter contracts unless a puppy has a serious fault. • Encourage your puppy buyers to consider breeding their puppy when s/he’s an adult. Become a mentor to them. • Try to use more dogs and bitches in each litter for breeding. • Don’t remove dogs from your breeding program for small problems. Weigh and consider pros and cons of health issues. • Learn more about genetics and good breeding practices in general. I’m not saying to produce a lot of mutts or become a puppy farmer. I’m not telling you to lower your standards. And I’m not saying that you shouldn’t health test your dogs. What I am saying is that these suggestions can help breeds who have lower numbers. Include more puppy buyers in your future breeding plans and more dogs in the gene pool and it can help increase the number of dogs bred as well as the overall health 82 Dog News

of the breed. This isn’t something that I thought of all by myself. Some of these ideas come from population genetics. It’s good to use more dogs and bitches in the gene pool; and it’s good to keep individuals in the gene pool if they don’t have major problems and you use them sparingly. Most of all, you want to breed more instead of less. If we don’t do some of the things recommended here for breeds with low numbers, then at some point in the future it might become necessary to use outcross breeding to try to save various breeds. I don’t think that’s something that most breeders of purebred dogs look forward to with pleasure. I think it would be great if AKC would do something to encourage breeders with some of the breeds with low numbers but they would have to identify them first. Maybe they could reduce the price of registering a litter by a few dollars or give a breeder/owner some recognition for persevering with these breeds – it’s really not easy finding majors when you have a breed with such low numbers! (Especially if you live in the middle of nowhere, as I do.) We need to keep these breeders and owners involved with their breeds or they will be doomed to extinction. I know these ideas go against the grain for many breeders. They are contrary to popular thought today that encourages people to spay/neuter every dog and breed very little. But if we want to keep a lot of our breeds around, we need to take actions like these. If you love your breed and you want to make them less vulnerable, keep breeding, despite all the obstacles. Their futures are in our hands and we have to make sure we leave them strong and healthy for the next generation. Now, if we can just see those breed statistics.

COAST to COAST the hounds” at their home, first in Northern California, then in Morongo Valley, and finally in Murrieta. The Barbers’ life when they began in dogs was already scheduled with precision to accommodate Lilian’s career in photography and journalism, and Don’s career in the United States Navy with frequent tours of sea duty. But dog shows became an important part of their lives, and their ownership of Italian Greyhounds increased in numbers and quality. Lilian plunged into the intricacies of learning how to be a breeder and owner-handler. She studied pedigrees and canine health and attended handling classes for Obedience and Conformation. With new friends and new abilities she also began to gain new confidence in herself. Certainly, her work at the camera store in San Francisco where she handled account sales to the professional clientele including Ansel Adams, had required her to improve her communication skills. And ushering at the War Memorial Opera House and her reporting duties for the magazine, Opera & Concert , also had a positive effect especially when she was befriended by the famous French coloratura soprano, Mado Robin. But she credits the sport of dogs for making it possible for her to shed much of the painful shyness with which she had grown up.

was arrested and sent to Dachau, and finally, she was expelled from school and told not to return. Although, through bribes and a twist of fate, Siegfried Bauer was later released from the infamous concentration camp, the family knew their future was in jeopardy – all but Lilian. She did not know why her name was officially changed to include the middle name of Sarah and she did not know why she had to wear a large J on the outside of her clothes. She did not know why she was being tutored by her grandfather instead of going to school or why the cook and maid had left the house. There were whispered meetings of adults—parents and grandparents, a great aunt and uncle – there were arguments and tears. Lilian found out what was wrong: the Bauer family was Jewish. After frantic searches for relatives in America who would sponsor them, a letter finally arrived but there would be a waiting period for entry. Since Germany was no longer safe, they would have to go elsewhere. So, early in 1939 Lillian and her parents packed what they could carry, said their very last goodbyes to their family, successfully passed through the heavily armed check points, and

oon she could look back on her early years as “long ago and far away.” Born in Stuttgart, Germany, Lilian and her parents, Gertrude and Siegfried Bauer, moved to Rottenburg am Neckar. The family-owned factory made it possible for the Bauers to have a comfortable life complete with a household staff, and most important for five-year-old Lilian, the finest sandbox in Rottenburg. Music, art, and books were important to family life with Gertrude and her brother, Rudolf, frequently playing duets on the piano and violin. But those idyllic days soon came to an end when Lilian was seven years old. First, she was puzzled when her friends no longer were allowed to play at her house, then her father

departed on the train to Holland for their London destination. But London was difficult. They spoke no English, foreign nationals could not work, and the sparsely furnished one room bedsitter in Camden Town was a world away from their previous life experience. At school, Lilian was either teased for her German clothes and foreign speech or ostracized because she was considered an enemy. Then, the British Government instituted a program to remove children from the city to protect them from the inevitable bombing raids by the Luftwaffe. Lilian was sent to live with tenant farmers in Steeple Morden where she was to take care of the family’s young daughter and work on the farm. Food was scarce, the house was cold and Lilian begged to go back to her parents whether there were bombs or not. Finally, after a very long year in England, the Bauers boarded the Lancastria for the crossing to New York – the first part of their journey to their new home in San Francisco. At age nine, Lilian was happy to live in a beautiful city, to go to school, to walk to the library, and spend the day at the zoo. While her parents worked, Lilian became expert in finding her way all over the city. And it was not long before she found out about the Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show, which was held at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium. The dogs were on long rows of benches and she visited them all, but Collies were her favorites thanks to the books she had read by Albert Payson Terhune. She dreamed of having a dog, she begged for a dog, she even threatened to run away if she did not get a dog. She not only read dog stories from the library but she also found the dog show catalog impressive even if she did not understand the listings or the competition. Every year when she returned to her “other world odyssey” she watched the people carry a catalogue with them from bench to ring and from one ring to another. She knew it must be important. For Lilian Bauer Barber, that was long ago and far away and it would be still more years before she did get her dog. Lilian was determined. Her life would be with dogs! To be continued in a future issue.

other domesticated animals. (The latter is no longer a commonly expressed view because it cost extremists supporters among the general public in the past.) Given the millions of dogs in the US, the above may sound like an unobtainable objective. But it could be achieved with the passage of laws mandating mandatory spay/neuter in conjunction with legislative regulations on breeders so stringent they are forced out of business. In that event, the species would cease to exist in 15 or 16 years when all living dogs died because there would be none to replace them. “While there are some proponents of this philosophical scenario among the animal rights extremists, many others within the movement are motivated more by its extreme profitability than by any philosophical tenet. Its extreme profitability is due to the brilliant use of cause marketing in conjunction with conflict fundraising,” Strand says.

Cause Marketing

In and of itself, cause marketing is a legitimate promotional method. The Crying Indian, “Keep America Beautiful,” public awareness campaign is a classic example of it. “When used by animal rights extremists in concert with conflict fundraising however, it creates a damaging scenario where in order for the fundraising group to look good and be able to raise money, someone else must be made to look bad. Here, the marketer identifies a cause; a victim; a villain or the person or industry responsible for the alleged victimization; and a vindicator or savior, the person or organization that is willing to speak up for the victim and ‘save the day.’” For example, animal rights fundraisers launching a campaign against dog overpopulation might publish photos of barrels filled with dead shelter animals (the victims) in order to gain media attention and allege that dog breeders (the villains) are responsible for the deaths and therefore should be regulated. The animal rights fundraisers play the role of vindicator and thus are able to make headlines and raise money to pass their legislative agenda. “The victim/villain/vindicator scenario also is evident in the hundreds of legislative bills promoted for passage each year by extremists,” Strand says. “Importantly, the marketing campaign that accompanies each piece of

102 Dog News

legislation not only shifts the legal balance of power in their direction, it serves as a powerful tool for changing public opinion.”

Taking Back The Conversation

Animal rights extremists have succeeded in large part by making the general public erroneously believe they care about the welfare of animals. NAIA’s mission is to demonstrate that the people, who live and work with animals, are the true animal welfare experts and the ones doing the most to protect and care for them. In order to ‘take back the conversation’ or reframe the issues in that context, NAIA has undertaken several projects that should have an enormous impact on public opinion.

The Shelter Project

Pet overpopulation has been a major issue for the animal rights community for decades and, in the early years, it was a legitimate concern. Today, when shelters throughout the Northern states need to import dogs in order to have dogs available for adoption, it’s glaringly clear that pet overpopulation is no longer an issue. “Early on, it was evident that the data being cited in pet overpopulation campaigns was inaccurate. The problem for us [NAIA], especially in the heat of a legislative battle, was the lack of publicly available shelter data that we could use to refute these claims. As a result, they controlled the debate. In response to this lack of reliable data, we developed the NAIA Shelter Project,” Strand says. See http://shelterproject. naiaonline.org/. “In addition to having more shelter data than any other source, The Shelter Project is dedicated to understanding shelter population trends, reducing euthanasia of adoptable pets, improving pet health and welfare, reducing infectious and zoonotic disease transmission, and fighting consumer fraud,” Strand says. Data for The Shelter Project was provided voluntarily by many shelters or mandated by law in some states. Because many states do not require animal shelters to provide data on their intake and disposition of animals, NAIA wrote model

legislation requiring shelters to do so and has advocated for its passage across the US. “With the help of the Florida Association of Kennel Clubs for example, this legislation passed in Florida last year,” Strand says. (The Shelter Project also includes a useful glossary of animal shelter terminology and a Quick Facts Section.)

Consider The Source

Currently, NAIA is developing a webbased resource called “Consider the Source” for people interested in animals. It’s a huge project being made available to everyone that will provide a vast array of useful, reliable information. “It’s an encyclopedic undertaking that will provide information about all kinds of animals: dogs, cats, and animals used in agriculture and in science. It will include everything from the care and feeding of different species to their history and breed development . . . The information will be provided in a factual but interesting way so teachers will send students to it and scientists will be comfortable with it. “The Dog Section is ready for launch in two months. We’re starting small with lots of fun and fascinating information and a Consumer Guide on how to select the right family dog. We intend to add information over time on subjects as diverse as dietary choices, livestock production, rangeland management, hunting and fishing issues, and more,” says Strand. Consider the Source content will be supported by numerous scientific studies including ones initiated by NAIA. When the project is completed, NAIA plans to promote Consider the Source widely and is working with a public relations firm now to promote it as the general public’s ‘go to’ source for factual information about animals.

Scientific Studies

Since 2010, NAIA also has been working on a scientific study aimed at answering questions about current sources of dogs as well as ones that will be available to prospective American pet owners in the future. To that end, it is seeking answers to the following questions: What is the likelihood that current sources will be able to meet consumer demand?; Will current sources be adequate to replace dogs in current households?; What are some of the qualitative aspects of dog Continued on page 106

acquisition?; What are prospective dog owners looking for in a dog?; How satisfied are consumers with their previous choice of a dog?; Did the dogs from various sources meet the expectations of their owners?; How does consumer satisfaction impact dog ownership trends in the US?; and How willing are new owners to overcome temperament or health issues?. In order to answer these questions, NAIA representatives worked with two respected companion animal veterinary scientists, Jan Scarlett, DVM, PhD, at Cornell University and the late John New, DVM, MPH, at the University of Tennessee. The latter was the recipient of the American Veterinary Medical Association Animal Welfare Award and the Leo K. Bustad Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year Award. Both have important scientific studies to their credit. Thus far, the study has amassed data from numerous sources: dog registries; animal shelters; and other scientific studies such as those completed by the AVMA as well as from NAIA’s own Household Dog Survey. (See below.)

The Household Dog Survey

If I Ran The Dog Show

“The Household Dog Survey, which explores current trends in dog ownership, was developed over more than 2 years and conducted online in 2013 using one of the advanced programs offered by Survey Monkey®. The survey sampled more than 1000 people between the ages of 28 and 70 and got proportional representation from all 9 census divisions and income levels,” Strand says. Although the survey results haven‘t been formally analyzed as yet, some of the raw data appears to confirm the general public’s negative opinion of purebred dogs and their breeders. Among the most disturbing of its findings, is the fact the general public now believes by a margin of 2 to 1, according to survey data, that animal shelter dogs are superior to dogs bred by responsible breeders; where responsible breeders are defined as those who belong to clubs and compete at shows. That margin is surprising even to Strand because numerous studies have shown that animal shelters are the weakest source of dogs in terms of their outcome in new homes. “The fact that the source of 20% of all shelter dogs is another shelter gives you a sense of how likely they are to succeed in their new home,” She says.

Assuming that Temperament is a high priority in your decision to acquire a new dog, where would you first look to find a dog? A serious in-home breeder, one who belongs to clubs and competes at shows An animal shelter (e.g., an SPCA, humane society, municipal shelter)

The need to expose children to accurate information about the dog fancy is another factor being addressed by NAIA’s effort to take back the conversation. In order to “raise” the next generation of purebred dog breeders and dog show participants, children need to be exposed to accurate information. A fun, effective way to accomplish this task is to provide them with books about purebred dogs and dog shows. To that end and at the urging of Cathy De La Garza and Pat Hastings, NAIA is promoting the sale of the latest installment in the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Learning Library, If I Ran the Dog Show. “It’s an ideal book for introducing children to the sport of purebred dogs. NAIA is making copies of it available to breed and kennel clubs on a quantity discount basis so clubs can distribute copies to the general public. So far, we’ve distributed more than 6,000 copies!” Strand says. To order copies of If I Ran the Dog Show or to make a donation to NAIA, visit http://naiaonline.org/donations/

World


the very old silent films of Chaplin, the first Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy (my favorites until today), and many other iconic actors and films. Some months ago, after watching Citizen Kane (1941), I was the next to choose. It was almost natural after the Orson Welles film to show up with Casablanca (1942) due the dispute between these two elected by critics (of the era) as the best films all times. (Casablanca was the winner). Besides the history, the music such as “It Had to be You” or “As Time Goes By” are extra temporal. Oh I could talk about this subject almost as much as about dogs - i.e. forever. Now, being me, naturally Casablanca evolved to Morocco, and Morocco evolved to a local dog. Here we go from Hollywood’s Casablanca to Kingdom of Morocco and its Atlas Mountains. The Kingdom of Morocco situated in North Africa with capital Rabat, in Arabic “al-Maġhrab”, is officially the Constitutional Monarchy of the Kingdom of Morocco, ruled by King Mohammed VI. The country has been inhabited by Berbers* for about the last 5000 years. Very rarely was the country completely unified, and conflict between Arabs and Berbers was incessant. Morocco was from the 17th to the 19th century, a base for pirates preying upon the Mediterranean trade. The Arabs conquered the territory that would become Morocco over seven centuries ago. Berbers are 70% of the whole population and they speak a different language from the Arabic state language. Morocco has an elected parliament, has a population of over 33 million and an area of 446,550 km2 (172,410 sq mi). Its largest city is Casablanca, other major cities include Marrakesh, Tangier, Fez, Agadir, and some more. It is logical, that after so many occupations the local culture is a mix of Arab, Berber, African, and European influences. The country gained independence from France on March 2, 1956 and from Spain on April 7, 1956. Morocco and Spain are separated by a small water passage that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar. Europe and Africa are distant by 8.8 miles of ocean at the strait’s narrowest point. Ferry boats cross between the two continents

every day, and it takes only 35 minutes travel from the Spanish town of Tarifa to the Moroccan town of Tangier. The country has uncountable hidden treasures such as the indigenous species of monkeys, the Barbary Macaques, which are living in the mountains of Algeria, Morocco and Gibraltar. The monkeys live freely in the wild near Azrou in the Middle Atlas Mountains. This is the land of the incredible goats that climb the Argan trees in search of food. Over time they have become not only able to climb the high

trees but they can jump from branches to branches of the tree as well. The droppings of the goats contain the kernels of the seeds they consume. The local residents press and grind the droppings into oil. A quarter-liter bottle of this goat-digested kernel-oil goes from 15 to 50 dollars. Among many other goods of Morocco the artisanal leather objects are the country largest export material. They sell up to 100 million slippers, bags, and valets annually around the world.

Dogs. From this data, it is clear that these dogs were not sight hounds. It is more likely that this skeleton represents the ancestors of the modern Canaan Dogs who were semi-domesticated, interacting with humans periodically in this area. This intriguing hypothesis can be confirmed with DNA testing and we are actively working on this project. The first modern Canaan Dog was domesticated by Dr. Rudolfina Menzel in 1934. Dr. Menzel trained these dogs to be used as guard dogs because of their acute sense of hearing. They have also been used as bomb detection dogs because of their sensitive sense of smell. The native intelligence and awareness of their surroundings made them ideal as early watch dogs. A few Canaan Dogs still live in the wild. However, their existence is threatened by their willingness to live on the outskirts of mid-eastern cities. This has led to the interbreeding with city dogs and will eventually lead to the dilution of the breed in the wild if this trend continues. A picture of one of Dr. Menzel’s original dogs is on the top right. His name is Dugma and he is one of the founders of the modern Canaan Dog breed. Given that his early years were spent in the wild, Dugma’s appearance is somewhat “non-groomed” compared to that of a modern show dog. Below Dugma’s picture is a picture of Magnum, an example of the modern day Canaan Dog. Mag110 Dog News

“A few Canaan Dogs still live in the wild. However, their existence is threatened by their willingness to live on the outskirts of mideastern cities.”

Then.. num is one of the top winning Canaan Dogs in AKC breed history. Note that the original color and conformation is maintained. The characteristic alert attitude is apparent from their posture and erect ears of each dog. This alertness is essential for survival in Israel’s Negev Desert from whence these dogs originated. The breed is described as being “reactive-aloof”. To firmly establish that Canaan Dogs are related to the canine remains found in the Ashkelon archeological site will require DNA testing. Support for this project is currently being solicited.

Manila,ThePhilippines Continued FROM page 81

bellman was ushering me to the front desk a young lady and gentleman from the club were waiting for my arrival to greet me. They had the complete social schedule and judging schedule for the long weekend. They also had a large welcome bag filled with all kinds of goodies. I must say I felt very guilty that people from the club were there to greet me at close to midnight. The young man that ushered me to my room could not have made me feel more welcome. From the time I stepped off the plane until settling into my room, I cannot express just how impressed I was with the detail of my arrival in Manila. I felt like I was some kind of “Head of State,” not a dog show judge. By the time I got settled into my lovely suite it was now very early Wednesday morning Manila time. I had departed my home at 6 AM Monday morning and realized just how long the trip had been. It was close to 9,000 flying miles. One way this is the equivalent of my flying coast to coast roundtrip twice. Being that my body was totally out of sync from the huge change of time and sleeping so much en route, I did not sleep much my first night in Manila. That is why for one reason it is always wise to have a complete day to adjust before the judging starts. In reviewing the schedule I noticed the panel consisted of 17 renowned judges from all continents of the world. It is a bit humbling to be on a panel of such esteemed world famous dog celebrities. So often with foreign assignments, I do not know the other judges, but here many are old time friends and people I have long admired. The majority of the panel I have had the pleasure of judging with before. It appears that nobody is judging all four days, only three of the four days. I will be judging Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. I will probably be glad to have a day off Friday since it appears hat Thursday I will have 250 dogs to judge. By US standards that would mean ten hours of judging. On

Saturday I only have 108 and on Sunday only 128. Pomeranians lead the entry with 38, Siberian Husky – 35; Long coat Chihuahua – 32, Beagles – 36, Labs – 2 8 and many breeds have well over 20. Surprisingly some breeds have much smaller entries than I would have imagined for a show of this stature. Goldens only have 11, Rottweiler – 7, Dobermans – 9 and all varieties of the Dachshund – 9. There is just 1 Samoyed and they are quite popular in some Asian countries and this is the same for Maltese. Wednesday several of the judges, Rafael DeSantiago, Gerard Jipping, Miguel Martinez Tatijana, Roberto VelezPico and I went for a city tour of Old Manila. Because of extreme traffic it was about an hour and a half before we reached that part of the city, but we got to see a lot of the flavor of the city as a whole. Since several of the judges were not judging on Thursday, Carla Molinari, William Rodriguez and Christian Stefanescu were not arriving until later in the day. It was enjoyable not only to tour the city, but to spend time talking with several judges from different parts of the world. Due to work commitments, Andrew Brace was not able to join us. I enjoyed having breakfast with Andrew and catching up with some of the news from his side of the pond. A couple of days earlier, Andrew had posted pictures of the Boxers that were his main winners at a championship show in England. It was interesting to learn his views of Boxers in England today. Although they differ a bit in type from the norm in America, they apparently share some of the same shortcomings. An example is feet being on the downside as they are in the States. While judging a large entry of Boxers in Mexico recently, the same fault was also prevalent. As the dog world is getting closer and closer together, it appears certain faults are common in certain breeds no matter what country you judged the breed. Hopefully since so much of the world has American type Goldens our problem of short legs will not spread around the world. While touring I learned this circuit will be the last of its kind. The countries of

“Like most countries of the world today, there will be a large entry from Russia. The down side of this circuit is that it reduces entries in neighboring countries.” 114 Dog News

Montenegro, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Cyprus and Moldova are all offering championship titles at this circuit. FCI will no longer allow this. By offering these championships from so many countries is partially why the entry is so large. Exhibitors can come to Manila and by winning titles from four different countries in one weekend they can gain their International Championship titles. While clearing customs, I ran into exhibitors arriving from Japan. Supposedly even some Americans will be present. Like most countries of the world today, there will be a large entry from Russia. The down side of this circuit is that it reduces entries in neighboring countries. I know there is a show going on in Bangkok, Thailand also this weekend. It is a wonderful show and I had the pleasure of judging it last year. I know this year some of the people from Bangkok are coming to the show here in Manila. This evening before dinner a meeting is being held with the Board of Directors of the FCI Asia Pacific group. I did have the pleasure of seeing Alex Zee from Taiwan earlier today. Alex has been very instrumental in helping the sport of dogs to get started in China. This newly formed group of the Asia Pacific FCI delegation will profit greatly from having the likes of Alex Zee and Dinky Santos on their board. FCI has just recently given full recognition to the China Kennel Union and this organization has picked up the slack of so many shows that the China Kennel Club used to organize. The China Kennel Union is now putting on over 60 weekends of shows throughout China. Wednesday evening a very large group of officers and judges met in the lobby at 9 PM to go to a charming Japanese buffet restaurant. The restaurant was huge and offered hundreds of items. Plus they came to the tables offering some of the house specialties. On the recommendation of Dinky, I made room for the pig’s ears. Not sure exactly what spices were used in the preparation, but the flavor was wonderful. Around 10:30 Dinky announced that we would be going to a bar. Even though he promised that we would be back to the hotel Continued on page 118

between 12:30 and 1:00, several opted to return to the hotel. Knowing I had 254 dogs plus multiple groups I opted to return to the hotel. Upon arriving back to the Richmonde, Andrew Brace and I decided we would have a quick nightcap. We shared several of our common interests drinking, smoking and the huge passion of talking dogs. Time passes so fast while having fun and suddenly I realized it was approaching 1 AM. Having a nice nap earlier in the day, I was not that tired but wanted to get a good night’s sleep. Awakening Thursday morning around 5:30 AM, I was so much looking forward to the opening day of the show. As with all foreign assignments the first day I am always a bit apprehensive not knowing exactly what to expect. We all had a very detailed schedule of the show, but never having judging in the Philippines the procedure and mechanics would be a first for me. It seems no two countries of the world have the same exact judging procedures. Dinner is listed on the social schedule for 8 PM right in the venue. Third hand I just learned they are hoping the different Bests can start by 7 PM. Hopefully judging will start promptly as scheduled for 10 AM. Like most foreign countries, the first morning always starts late. This is usually caused by two factors – one is due to the workers of the show getting the instructions and learning the procedures of the day, also the exhibitors always seem to be running late and being a bit confused where they pick up their armbands, etc. Considering the magnitude of this event and all the confusion, judging was able to start by 10:30 AM. It was a very long day for several of the judges and exhibitors. My entry was 254, but besides a lunch break, there were delays during the day when some breeds were running behind in other rings. Each breed was shown at three different events each day. Thursday evening we did not leave the building until ten minutes before midnight. This meant Dinky had to find a place that was willing to take a large group of people for dinner. The restaurant and bar in the hotel was closed, but several judges opted to return to the hotel, which offered room service 24 hours around the clock. Looking around the show on Thursday, I immediately saw people from all corners of the world. I was surprised to see just in Boxers that Wendy Bettis 118 Dog News

and Kimberly Steele had come to show dogs. Lauren House also from California had come over to show some Siberians. There was a large show also taking place in Thailand, but many of the top exhibitors from Thailand came to the show in Manila. The circuit offered championship titles in seven different countries. This made for a most unique array of dog shows. This was a piece of history in that the FIC is no longer allowing this to occur after this weekend. It did have its pros and cons. It made for so many dogs coming from other Asian countries, but hurt the entries for the other Asian countries that were holding their shows this same weekend. Surprisingly when we arrived at the restaurant for dinner around 12:30 AM everyone was still in a good mood and immediately started to enjoy a drink. I think everyone was so glad that the day was over and some

“Looking around the show on Thursday, I immediately saw people from all corners of the world.” of us survived huge entries. All of the judges had one day off. I was so glad that Friday was my free day. After judging that many dogs and not getting back to the hotel until around 2:30 AM, it was a relief knowing I did not have to get up at the crack of dawn. Not being a shopper and having already done the city tour Wednesday, I chose to go over to the show around noon. Annabelle rang my room around 11:30 AM and said she was here to take me over to the show. This way I could get to watch some of the breeds I would not be judging and to rewatch some breeds I had already judged. It is always interesting to see other judges you respect and see what their opinions might be. Early afternoon Dinky asked if I would mind doing some judging. Apparently one of the judges was going extremely slow and it was holding up her entry that had to go on to other rings. I explained they were breeds I was to judge Saturday or

Sunday. Dinky said they would readjust the other days and it was imperative not to delay today’s judging any longer. Not wearing a tie, I felt uncomfortable, but at least I had a sports jacket on. Again, the show ran late and Dinky called the hotel and arranged for the restaurant to stay open to serve us. Being it was around 11:30 PM several judges chose to have room service. Not being exhausted I wanted to enjoy the company of some of the judges I enjoy and rarely get to spend time with. Having snacked on some excellent Pizza ringside, I did not want a huge meal. I had the Asian chicken noodle soup and it was fabulous. When my soup arrived the “Countess”, Carla Moliari, decided she would order the same thing. Carla and one of the other judges had been feeling a bit off with their digestive systems. Traveling half way around the world our systems do get a bit out of whack. Saturday was another long day and upon returning to the hotel around 11 PM, the restaurant was closed, but Dinky offered to take everyone to a restaurant and we would meet in the lobby in about 15 minutes. When I got to my room, I felt exhausted and just ordered a beer from room service. I knew that Sunday would be a very long day again with the added closing ceremonies, etc. Sunday was my lightest day of judging and I did one of the three regular BIS. The show ended around 11 PM and all the judges, show committee, handlers and exhibitors were invited to an after show party. The party took place at the Manila Polo Club. This was a lovely setting with great food and drinks, but most importantly great company. There were shuttle vans running constantly back to the hotel. It was so much fun getting to socialize with so many of the owners and handlers; I had a burst of energy. Andrew Brace and I were having such a great time we opted to take the last van back to the hotel. Returning to the hotel around 3:30 AM, there was no time for sleeping, since my car service was picking me up at 5:30 AM. By the time I reached the airport I was exhausted, but knowing I had 19 hours flying time ahead of me, I knew I would be sleeping most of the time on the plane. I did sleep practically the whole way home and even dreamt of the great times of the show in Manila. Dinky certainly made a dream come

tice and patience. Most of the time, it’s best not to see how the sausage is made. But in 19th-Century London, there was a place where one could see dog history unfold, and breeds evolve – in a working-class, canalside district dubbed Kensal New Town. “The dwellings themselves are afflicted with all the disorders that houseflesh is heir to,” intoned Hallberger’s Illustrated Magazine in an 1876 article, a description that could just as easily apply to a distemperate dog as ramshackle houses. “They are, for the most part, terribly out of

the perpendicular, suffering from affectations of the spine, broken ribs, and swellings about the knees. Skin disease is also prevalent, large patches of plaster having peeled off here and there, and communicated a generally mangy look to the lopsided tenements.” But there was a stand-out amid these “unpromising habitations,” a freshly painted, “cozy” little abode.

George, who valued that prefix not because of his 70 or so years, but rather “as an indication of the affection in which he is held by dogs and men.” And that affection was outsized, to say the least. Bill George was a dog dealer, a buyer and seller and sometimes breeder of animals that he kept tethered in his dog yard, numbering in the hundreds. Despite his unglamorous vocation, mentions of him invariably heaped on glowing adjectives, from “celebrated” to “great,” “eminent” to “unique.” He earned a cartoon in Punch magazine in 1846, cementing his place in the public consciousness of England, and perhaps farther afield, as George claimed to have been visited by foreign royalty. In the late 1830s, Charles Dickens reportedly took strolls around the Canine Castle while researching the character Bill Sikes’ dog, Bull’s Eye, in his novel Oliver Twist. “There could be no question that what Bill didn’t know about a dog wasn’t worth talking about,” wrote Finch Mason in a 1907 edition of Fore’s Sporting Notes and Sketches. “No matter what breed it was you wanted, he’d get it for you, and no fault to be found if you didn’t mind paying for it.” According to accounts of the day, George was illiterate: One writer claimed he heard that George commenced his letters to clients with the bungled salu-

tation “Honored Cur.” (His business name was spelled rather creatively as well, sometimes appearing as “K-nine Castle” or “K.9. Castle.”) Regardless of George’s own correspondence skills, he delighted in receiving mail playfully addressed to “Lord George,” “King William” and “General George.” Reportedly, a letter sent to “Bill George, Devil’s Castle, Bloodhound Corner, Tyke Lane, London” reached him, but another, inscribed “Mr. Bill George, Dog Fancier, London” was returned to the sender. In what may be an apocryphal account, George asked the name of the postmaster general, and, on hearing it was Lord John Manners, replied, “Tell those fools in the Post Office that if his Lordship don’t know me, I don’t know manners.” Mason the writer remembers the older Bill George as a rather matter-of-fact figure, “a tall, spare old man, attired in a roomy pepper-and-salt coat, cord breeches and tan gaiters, a tall hat on his head, and a blue bird’s eye ‘fogle’ tied in many

folds around his neck.” As a young man, George was a bare-knuckle prizefighter, and was hard pressed to leave his love of the sport behind: As late as 1862, the year he turned 60, he was apprehended in London by police for refereeing an illegal boxing match in Newbury County, about 50 miles outside the city. George’s connection with pugilism had canine parallels, too. Before striking out in business for himself, he apprenticed for dog dealer Ben White, who bred and sold Old English Bulldogs, which were used for dog fighting and bull baiting. White’s swan song came in 1825, when he procured dogs for the sponsor of a fight that pitted a lion named Nero against six dogs. The band struck up Rule Britannia before the dogs were slipped from their iron chains and the tame, Edinburgh-bred cat crouched to greet them, more out of perplexity than ferocity. The subsequent public outcry was so great that dog fighting was banned locally, though White reportedly contin-


ued supplying gladiators for the illicit sport in secret. By 1835, the English Parliament passed the Cruelty to Animals Act, and dog fighting was banned nationwide. White died that same year, and George lost no time in buying the property and business from White’s widow, renaming the enterprise with his lofty “Canine Castle” moniker. George realized that not only his business, but the Bulldog itself, needed to move in a kindler, gentler direction. And he succeeded on both scores, making a reputation for himself as an honest businessman, and his Bulldogs as docile, loyal companions. “He carried on the business of a dog dealer and breeder in such a way that he became noted as an honourable dealer at a time when dog dealing was looked upon as an occupation whose professors were not particularly noted for their practice of honesty,” wrote Bulldog breed authority Edgar Farman. “… When during the latter part of his life, dog shows became the vogue, his kennel produced dogs as well able to win on the show bench and breed winners, as, formerly, specimens of their strain had been able to hold their own in the dog pit.” The Hallberger’s correspon-

And he succeeded on both scores, making a reputation for himself as an honest businessman, and his Bulldogs as docile, loyal companions.” dent, the German poet Ferdinand Freiligrath, described his 1876 tour of the Canine Castle in detail, noting there were some 400 dogs on the premises, and marveling at the sheer variety on display. “Domiciled in great wooden houses, carefully littered down, are superb specimens of other great dogs. Mastiffs, with their black muzzles, and soft, lowtoned bark; deep-voiced bloodhounds, with great hanging lips, and eyes placed close together, giving them a curiously-vicious aspect to the highest type of the hound …” he wrote. “Magnificent deerhounds, rough of coat, shake their long limbs, and ask with their beautiful eyes for a word of encouragement.”

Freiligrath noted that “every variety of sporting dog has its representative” – in one kennel, a pack of Foxhounds; in another, pointers, setters, Otterhounds, Clumber Spaniels and water spaniels. One whole stable was occupied by Bull Terriers, “of all sorts and sizes, revealing more or less in their conformation their relationship to the grand old English bull-dog.” Fox-terriers, just beginning to gain in popularity, were also at hand, “game as a pebble, and sharp as a steel trap.” As for Toy dogs, “tiny pets of all kinds” abounded, from Maltese with silky coats to Italian Greyhounds to Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, which Freiligrath eerily described as “hydrocephalic-looking.” “The chorus raised by the canine magnates of the yard is almost deafening, as ‘Old’ Bill George passes from one to the other, giving a word of kindness here, and a friendly pat there,” he observed, “expatiating by the way on the ‘points’ of the various animals.” George’s business card bore a Bulldog’s head as a crest, and that was quite intentional. Though he sold and bred many breeds, it was with Bulldogs that he made his mark. Indeed, George eventually expanded the breed’s size boundaries in both directions, setting the course for the heavier, modern English Bulldog, and preparing the stage for its diminutive French cousin. In 1840, George imported a Spanish Bulldog, a distinct breed of fighting dog that was known as the Alano on the Iberian Peninsula. Significantly larger than the English Bulldogs of the time, the 90-pounder was a brindle pied, and his head was so impressive that George named him “Big Headed Billy.” (Unable to part with the spectacular headpiece, George had it taxidermied, and displayed it in a glass case in the Canine Castle. Indeed, his home was a mini-museum, with stuffed dogs in the windows, and engravings and paintings of dogs covering the walls.) Later in the 19th Century, still more of the Spanish dogs were imported, eventually leading to the formation of the Bulldog Club to save the British Bulldog from the “impending introduction into its Continued on page 138

And

M re THE BOARD MINUTES, TWO SHOWS A DAY...

by Matthew H. Stander Photos of Westminster KC by Carla Viggiano

I become

more and more embarrassed for AKC with each set of Board Minutes they publish. With certain very deliberate exceptions it is as though any real information and or understandable facts are either deliberately omitted or else mentioned as status reports but never explained. And don’t get me wrong these observations are not made in condemnation of any one sitting board or chairman but have been the modus operandi since Board Minutes have been made public. Don’t forget the “good old days” when the Board Minutes were kept under lock and key and the Board Members after having read the preceding Meeting Minutes were required to return them to the Board Chairman! Never to leave the Board Room for fear of letting people know what the Board was thinking and or planning. And if you have trouble accepting that attitude as having been in effect on the Board level check with David Merriam or even Jim Crowley about those days gone by. So in a sense we should all be grateful for what little information is actually reported except for

126 Dog News


the fact that we live today in a totally different age of communication wherein most of us today demand if not truly insist upon instant gratification insofar as what is happening or may happen is concerned. Such that when I read that Dennis Sprung gave a “status report on previous Action items assigned to Staff” or that Margaret Poindexter “presented a status report on pending litigation and other activities for the month of December 2013” and there is no further elucidation in the Minutes about what they stated I feel sorry for them not the Board. To me it looks as though the Board has left them hanging out in thin air as they say “to dry” when in fact it is the Board that is supporting these dubious policies. In my heart of hearts I know that both Dennis and Margaret would like to share this information where they can with the constituents but are restricted by doing so by past and probably present day Board philosophies. What

to do about this unacceptable situation is a fair question to ask and to whom should one reach out? Unfortunately I really do not know the answers to those kinds of questions since I am told that a goodly number of people on the Board are as frustrated with finding out what is planned for and in fact happening at AKC in certain areas as are the rest of us. And for arguments sake many people would agree that AKC’s business is AKC’s business and should not be made totally public. A sentiment with which I must say I basically agree but if AKC is going to hold itself out as providing Board Minutes and the like at the very least should the organization preface the release of its news with a caveat that the information being presented is selective in nature and not intended to be a full disclosure document? This would somewhat quiet those so unhappy with the types of reports being released don’t you think!

T

here are at least two judging areas that need some form of clarification. First of all I believe that Tim Thomas has matured into a way above average leader for the Judges Department. One may not always agree with his decisions or his interpretations but I find him concise, knowledgeable and totally honest about what he has to say. I may not and do not agree with all his public statements but when closely queried I rate him a high 9 or even a 10 in response mode factor. That’s one reason I was somewhat taken aback when I confronted him about the situation involving a judge who was and is appearing in ads for a food company’s product. I was told by Jim Crowley this was definitely not allowable under any circumstances after I saw a catalogue at the Waukasha KC show doing just that. Indeed I saw a very similar ad if not the same one in Oregon this past January. The judge in question confronted me very strongly at the Garden as he very well should have claiming that based on an interpretation from AKC that since his name was not mentioned and he was not paid this is an allowable and permitted practice. Which of course is the exact opposite of what I had been told both verbally and in writing by Jim Crowley. Well believe you me I headed for Tim forthwith who told me that indeed he had so interpreted the rule to the judge in question. Later in the day I again confronted Jim Crowley, who told me he knew nothing of this interpretation and that as far as he was concerned it remained the way he told me initially. Now then I do not know who is right and if anyone is wrong but I would think looking at the overall scheme of things Tim’s interpretation opens the door to questionable ethical practices under which judges could operate. I mean a full-page picture holding two pups with a food company’s logo without using the persons name or even getting paid is as much of an endorsement of anything I can imagine. I think a definitive rule should be established for every one’s sake.

M

y feelings about the two shows a day proposal are pretty much in the open since I have written any number of times against the concept. What really amuses me however is the way the proponents of which there are altogether too many on the Board seem to suddenly have realized that practically it’s going to be awfully difficult to implement even with the pressure certain Board members are putting on certain show supers to force it through “AND MAKE IT WORK” is the expression used or so I am told anyways. Problem comes with the RULE not policy but RULE, which limits the number of exhibits a judge may adjudicate upon in a day. The number is a well known 175. So what does come up under new Business in the Board Minutes but an inconclusive discussion of raising those limits from 175 to 200 so long as the judge involved is not doing a Group or Best that day. In my opinion a suggestion which came from a show super to a Board Member and watch for at the next meeting a motion to vote on that proposal immediately. There are so many other potential reasons to vote against this idea but to use it as sneak through for the two show a day idea is pretty much hitting below the belt. Which may be of course how those pushing these sorts of ideas operate with which to begin--you think? Dog News 127

In 1983 Mouscron had a huge entry of no less than 2014 dogs. Since the show happens in the current halls, it never ever crossed the magical border of 2000 entries again. This year, however, it almost happened, 1995 entries! Amazing!

It always

is a very crowded show and therefore I was somewhat afraid for such a number of dogs. Saturday was good for 931 entries. The remaining 1064 dogs were on term on Sunday. Saturday was not too busy and it was good walking around. Around noon most dogs and owners moved away from the rings and that made a lot of difference. That was not the case on Sunday. Not only were there more dogs, but, and that is what I keep saying, some people decided to reserve excessive space for themselves, not caring if people were able to move around. Some people absolutely want to sit at the fence of the ring with all their stuff, cages, etc. I don’t see that in other countries. The fences of the rings should remain free for the visitors and ALL the people who want to follow the judging, not just the happy first. This selfish attitude is the most important reason why things get so crowded sometimes. Every exhibitor loves nice big rings to show the movement of their dogs in the very best conditions. Mouscron has such big rings, very big ones, not just compared to the space in the halls but also compared to many other and bigger shows. The hall next to the main hall has two very big and long rings, as does the small hall in the back. But also the rings in the main hall are oversized compared to what we used to see on other shows. Of course this is at the expense of the space to sit. The rings in the main hall have only 2 sides bordering the spectator corridors and the entrance of the ring. If exhibitors take in this space with all their Continued on page 134

cages then we have a problem. If the organization finds a good solution to prevent (some) exhibitors to store all their stuff, seats, cages and tables around the ring, I am convinced that we have one of the most pleasing and charming shows of Belgium. Outside there is hardly any parking space, but notwithstanding that, there are hundreds of cars parked in the neighboring streets. Exhibitors don’t seem to bother to walk with all their stuff to the halls. But this seems not to be a big problem. No sign of selfishness? Why? Simply because the police would move the cars away. That is why I’m convinced that if the security would move away cages from the ringside, there would not be a problem. I advocate to use the entrance hall to store cages or move one of the rings to there, certainly if this show has ambition to grow larger.

T

he 1995 entries consisted of 15 nationalities. Half of them were from Belgium, 680 from France (less than 5km from the border), 168 dogs were from the Netherlands, 78 from Germany and 56 from the United Kingdom. Indeed it is easier and probably faster to come from the United Kingdom than it is from Germany or Luxemburg. Besides this exhibitors found the way from as far as Spain, Denmark and Russia to this little border town. This success turns this show into the biggest show of Wallonia and ranking in the top five of Belgium’s biggest shows. In order to hold all this in check 18 judges were invited. Two of them came from Portugal, 3 from France, another 3 from Italy and one from the United Kingdom, Mrs. Gillhespy, who judged 59 dogs, on Sunday only, of which 50 were Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Most successful judge on Saturday was Mr. De Giullani from Italy. He had 117 entries on Saturday, 58 Staffies, 34 Amstaffs and the Bull and Mini Bull Terriers. On Sunday he had ….only…89 entries. That made him the best scoring judge with 206 entries in total. Mrs. Adriana Griffa, also from Italy, finished Saturday

134 Dog News

with 112 dogs, the Great Danes and English Bulldogs. And on Sunday she had 79, which is a nice score too. Mr. Rui Oliveira from Portugal, had 115 dogs to judge on Saturday and 89 on Sunday. Mr. Tabo Giovanni Battista from Italy had the same final score of 204 dogs. He was most busy on Sunday when he had 128 dogs, breeds from Group I. Mme Delabelle, Belgian judge, had only 18 dogs on Saturday, but that was only to warm up for Sunday when no less than 135 dogs were waiting for her to be judged. Besides Afghans she judged the Chinese Cresteds and the Chihuahuas, all popular breeds. But Mr. JJ Dupas from France did defeat her with his 155 entries. He judged 50 dogs on Saturday, but on Sunday he had dogs from Group I, with 32 Swiss White Shepherds and from Group V, with 35 Akitas and 16 American Akitas. Two dogs are placed in this show, BIS and ResBIS, but all dogs need to come back on Sunday. Judge for BIS was Mr. Norman Deschuymere, who is one of Belgium’s all-rounders and Honorary Secretary of the

Club of Mouscron. His reserve Best in Show went to “Korinth of First Avenue”, a giant, an Irish Wolfhound, belonging to Mrs. Regine Vandamme from Belgium. Korinth is a 3-yearold bitch, entered in Champion Class along with 16 competitors, and bred in Belgium by the owner. Mrs. Delabelle was the judge who led this bitch to the main ring. Mr. Dumortier was the group judge. It was a small dog that defeated him, the Welsh Corgi Pembroke “Antudor Accidentally in Love”. Antudor is a fouryear-old male. He was also entered in Champion class, and had to compete with 3 others for the title. Judge was Mr. Tabo Giovanni Battista from Italy who introduced him thus to Mrs. Liliane De Ridder who, on her term presented him to Mr. Deschuyere as her group winner to compete for Best In Show. Christine Sonberg from Belgium bought the dog from breeder Neilson and will probably bring him next year again to this show, your chance to meet him on 24-25 of January 2015.

veins of blood of the Spanish milkcart dog.” Billy was a success in the whelping box, and by no coincidence he was the grandsire of George’s famous white Bulldog, known as George’s Dan. Weighing in at an impressive 65 pounds, Dan was sold for the then-astronomical sum of £100, roughly $15,000 in today’s dollars. (Press accounts tell us that after the purchase, Dan’s young new owner took him to Long’s Hotel on Bond Street, described as an establishment where “the fastest and best men in London lounged in and out of the coffee room from breakfast time till well on in the afternoon, and smoked, drank champagne, talked horsy, and swore loudly.” Perhaps in keeping with the company, Dan jumped through a pane of glass, though he managed not to injure himself.) In Hallberger’s, Freiligrath waxed on about heavyweight Dan and his descendants, “who receive us with a mighty clamour, as we step into the yard. They are ferocious in aspect, these mighty bull-dogs, but by no means truculent in disposition, being, in fact, a living proof that it is not always safe to judge by appearances. Their loud barking and tearing at their chains is mere sound and fury, signifying nothing but the naturally doggy desire to be spoken to, patted, and caressed.” The dogs were white – “or rather pink, for the most part,” he qualified. “They nearly all boast a patch of brindle, most lovely when

placed over the eye or at the base of the tail – beauty spots bequeathed to his descendants by the patriarch ‘Bigheaded Billy.’” Other than Dan, several of George’s Bulldogs are writ large in breed history. Among them was King Dick, bred by Jacob Lamphier of Birmingham, who paid a tidy sum to buy him back from George once he saw how well he turned out. The fallow-and-white bitch Lola Montes refused to breed for quite a long time – until George turned her loose in the kennel, after which she became an enthusiastic matron. While George was celebrated for his line of “heavy weights,” he was also known for his “Toy Bulldogs,” which might have been too popular for their own good. In the 1860s, smaller, lightweight Bulldogs were quite common – “so much so that dogs of the breed that scaled over 28 lbs were not encouraged at such shows as Birmingham, which was at that period the most important exhibition of its kind in England,” explained an 1899 issue of Country Life magazine. “Then by some freak of fashion the Toy Bulldog became all the rage in Paris.” Enter George, who began receiving “carte blanche commissions from French customers” for the small, compact dogs. Thanks to George’s enthusiastic exporting, the magazine harrumphed, “England was denuded

of all the best specimens.” Their offspring later returned to England under the banner of a new breed: the French Bulldog. George was also very active in Mastiffs, starting off several Victorian breeders. His popular stud dog, George’s Tiger, was bred by James Wiggleworth Thompson, coming down from his foundation bitch Juno, a brindle with an unknown pedigree procured by a teenaged Thompson from George. Thompson said he gifted the puppy to George as a token of appreciation for the straightforwardness he had exhibited in all their dealings. But the fact that the puppy had severely crooked legs from having fallen and nearly drowned in a tanning pit likely also factored heavily into the decision. George saw beyond the crippling injury to the dog’s muchneeded type, and Tiger – so named for his impressive head – reproduced his quality in the whelping box. Mastiff fancier M.B. Wynn, writing in the American Kennel Register in 1885, noted that the stone-colored dogs of the Tiger line were known for their “magnificent heads,” and “jet-black ears and muzzle.” George’s canny ability to find a good dog no matter who bred it also helped produce one of the most famous Mastiffs to first grace


the show ring. George procured a breeding pair (appropriately named Adam and Eve) for Captain Garnier at auction, and down from them resulted a male named Lukey’s Governor. Not only was Governor the first successful Mastiff of the modern dog-show era, but in 1867 he was chosen to illustrate the breed standard. To be sure, George had his detractors, among them Wynn, the American Mastiff fancier. “Bill George himself, like many modern London breeders, was somewhat cramped for room, and having a number of dogs on the ground, his home-reared puppies were neglected, not getting sufficient exercise and liberty,” he wrote, “the result being that his mastiff-breeding operations were, I believe, anything but satisfactory.” If anyone else took issue with his methods, few were willing to cross George and risk falling from his graces. In his 1907 story, Finch Mason explains that artists were frequent visitors to the Canine Castle, where they would procure models for their paintings. He recounts how one member of the Royal Academy of Arts ventured to George’s dog yard to find a Bloodhound for that purpose,

bringing along another animal painter to help him select. When they arrived, George was not there, and so his son Bill Jr. showed them around. “Several bloodhounds were on view, but not one of them good enough,” Mason explained. They were about to leave when they encountered a returning George, “who, on hearing the story, severely rebuked his son for insulting an old customer … by showing him the lot of rubbish he had.” George led the two men to a stall where they saw a magnificent Bloodhound resting on the straw. The dog had been sold to a foreign buyer, which is why young Bill had not mentioned him. He was also, one of the artists realized, a dog that had been recently stolen from one of the country’s most accomplished painters. Since the shipping date was a week away, George arranged to have his son bring the dog to the studio for a sitting every day at 11 a.m., and then return with him to the Canine Castle. Now the artist that was a longtime customer of George’s – the article does not clearly indicate which of the two it was – had a dilemma. “Not only desirous of restoring the lost dog to his rightful owner, who was nearly broken-hearted at its loss,” Mason wrote, “he was still

more anxious not to quarrel with Bill George, who would naturally decline in future to supply him with any more canine models if he became aware that he had been ‘split’ upon ...” The matter required great diplomacy, and so a strategy was planned. After the third day of sittings, as young Bill George, Jr., walked the Bloodhound back home, puffing contentedly on his pipe, the dog’s owner conveniently happened to pass by in his carriage. “The plot succeeded admirably, every detail being carried out to the letter,” Mason reported. “Young Bill, completely taken by surprise, was highly indignant at first, and flatly declined to surrender the dog at any price. An invitation, however, to settle the matter by arbitration at the adjacent police-station somehow did not fall in with his views, and in the end he reluctantly handed over his precious charge to the owner.” The Bloodhound’s shady provenance seems to be the exception rather than the rule in George’s dealings, and perhaps he had no idea that the dog was stolen goods; otherwise, it is unlikely he would have paraded him so publicly. Indeed, George’s reputation as an honest trader and a brilliant dog man perseveres through the decades, and – in the occasional Wikipedia reference – even the centuries. It was, perhaps, all he had left: George died in 1881 on a downward turn of his luck, leaving a paralyzed wife who was so poorly off the editor of Sporting Life magazine organized a collection for her. But as far as debts are concerned, George and his contemporaries are owed an incalculable sum of gratitude for helping steward the dog breeds we treasure today. “He was a character in his day and generation,” read his obituary in the Kennel Chronicle. “He is described by one who knew him as a sturdy, straightforward, honest dealing man, and known to be trustworthy by all who came in contact with him. Bill George remained an honourable man in a business which abounded with temptations.” Dog News 139

24/7 in the city of Fez. The city of Fez is the local where leather manufacturing centuries ago began. Fez was founded in the 9th century and is now home to over one million – mostly artisan - people. In 1981 the Old Medina (district) was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. When in Morocco it is a must to taste the Mediterranean dishes served everywhere. There is a local saying, “Café during the day and Restaurants at night!” After having drunk the famous café, one can taste a great selection of Moroccan dishes such as the tajines and couscous, harira (the lamb, lentil and chickpea soup), kefta (spicy minced lamb), kebabs and merguez (spicy sausage). At the streets of the medina, there are plenty of places modest or elegant where traditional and tasteful menus are offered from reasonable to high prices – depends how much one want to spend, but no matter where one decides to eat the high quality of the food never changes. The country has high level cultural and political life and uncountable important personages contributed to form what we know as the modern Morocco. Relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States date back to the earliest days of U.S. history. On December 20, 1777, Morocco became the first country to give a naval salute to the new nation. Formal U.S. relations with Morocco date from 1787 when the United States Congress ratified a Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the two nations. Renegotiated in 1836, the treaty is still in force, constituting the longest unbroken treaty relationship in 142 Dog News

U.S. history, and Tangier is home to the oldest U.S. diplomatic property in the world. Now a museum, the Tangier American Legation Museum is also the only building outside of the U.S. that is now a National Historic Landmark. (from -007texas.com/). I really had to squeeze Morocco’s history because I always discovered something important to mention, as for instance the French Foreign Legion activity in Africa, but this in itself is a very extensive subject. (If interested try to rent the film Beau Geste (1939) with Gary Cooper interpreting a legionnaire.) I have enjoyed my research and the time I spent traveling around studying and learning about the country and its culture, especially about the Moroccan dog: the Aidi. The highest mountain range in North Africa is the High Atlas. In Berber the Idraren Draren (Mountain of Mountains), the birth place of the Aidi (a.k.a. Atlas Mountain Dog, Atlas Mountain Hound, Atlas Sheepdog, Atlas Shepherd Dog, Chien de l’Atlas, Berber dog, and Kabyle Dog) whose history, as most of the ancient dog breeds, is involved in mystery. Probably it was the ancient Phoenicians’ civilization responsible for creating the Aidi. The Phoenicians (1550BC and 300BC) were the greatest traders and sailing their vessels they became the major naval and trading power of their time. The Phoenicians also bred and developed several dog breeds such as the Basenji, Ibizan Hound, Pharaoh Hound, Cirneco del’Etna, and others, with the purpose of trading them everywhere. These traders sailed around

Africa and besides other breeds sold the forefathers of the Aidi to the residents of the Atlas Mountains recognized today as the local of origin of the Aidi. Others firmly believe that the Aidi dog was selected and developed by the ancient residents of the Mountains. Similar to the sheepdogs of Turkey (Akbash and Karabash), the Morocco’s Aidi is considered by many to be a sheep dog. This is a mistake because Aidis do not herd. Their main work is to protect the sheep from predators. These dogs are naturally attentive and aggressive, are highly valued for their ability to protect the belongings of the nomad tribes, and of their individual masters. Having lived with nomadic tribes in the desert, the dogs have developed muscular bodies and strong constitution able to bear up to the most rigorous weather conditions. The dog is resistant, able to hunt and courageously faces any predator that could harm people, animals, or the property under its watch. These exceptional guarding abilities make them superb caretakers of herds of goats and sheep. Alert and independent, always ready for action, the breed has existed for more than five thousand years in the mountains


of North Africa. The mountain’s hunters, knowing of the exceptional olfactory sense of these dogs, often pair them to work with the Sloughi; the Aidi follows the scent of the prey and the fast running Sloughi will chase for the kill. Aidis are not very agile and it’s common to see the prey escaping from them. The absence of agility is the reason why they used to hunt with the swiftly moving and agile Sloughi. These two breeds working together is a powerful hunting combination. To this day the work of the hunters and their dogs are the food providers for hundreds of families. The Aidi is a rugged, muscular and solidly built dog that shows a powerful demeanor. This is a large dog, an adult Aidi measures from 21 to 25 inches in height and weighs 50 to 60 pounds. The dog always has an alert and vigilant expression, very true to its nature of being an outstanding guard both of man and animals. The dog’s bear head is well proportioned to the heavy muscular and well balanced body. The muzzle similar to the head is conical tapering to a nose with well opened nostrils. Nose can either be black or brown depending on the color of the coat. Lean tight lips also take the color of the dog’s coat. Medium sized dark colored eyes have well pigmented eyelids and have a lively, alert and searching expression. Medium length ears with somewhat rounded tips are obliquely set, often tipped forward and appeared to be semi drop when the dog is alert and laid back when the dog is relaxed. The dog has a long tail that is set as an extension of the loin. Bushiness of the tail signifies that the dog is a purebred. The tail carried low with a curve when the dog is at rest. The tail is carried gaily when the dog is on the move but never curled over the back of the dog. Some specimen have cropped ears and docked tail although the natural condition of the tail and the ears are preferred. The Aidi has a very thick long hair. Hair that is about 6 cm. covers the entire body except for the face and the ears that have shorter and finer hair. Long hair also covers the buttocks as well as the tail making it very bushy. Long hair on the neck and on the throat forms a mane. This is more evident on male dogs. The thick long hair serves as an armor that protects the dog when fighting with predators. In the same manner, the dense coat enables the dog to withstand freezing and scorching

temperature. Coat colors would range from fawn that can be brindled with black, brown that can be beige to dark brown and black and white. (from the Standard) The hard work has made the Aidi into an energetic and strong dog. However, besides the strong temperament the Aidi has proven to be a wonderful family pet as well. They protect the family and are gentle with children, but again, and again this breed - as any other breed needs to be socialized while still young. The dog needs a strong and firm master because for its protective nature the Aidi tends to be aggressive to any stranger (people or animal). This is a clean dog, relatively calm and inactive indoors, but they require plenty of exercise. Being a barker (to alert their masters), the dog is difficult

for apartment dwellings. They also need to have tasks for mental stimulation to prevent boredom. “A bored dog is a destructive dog.” Originally bred to live in a mountainous country the dog needs to exercise and spend its stamina, therefore the ideal living space would be a home with a large and high fenced yard where the dog could freely run. Today the Atlas Mountain dog is still guarding the flocks and hunts in the remote area of the North African mountains. Very affectionate and docile with its owner and family members, the Atlas Dog displays inherent guarding and remarkable protective behavior. Very faithful, affectionate and docile, always alert, it instinctively measures the gravity and proximity of any danger and fearlessly provides an appropriate and efficient response. (ARBA) Our dear readers will find the complete Standard at the FCI breed pages under Group 2 Pinscher and Schnauzer- Molossoid breeds Swiss Mountain and Cattle Dogs and other breeds, and at the ARBA breed pages. * The conglomerate tribes known under the generic term of Berbers are the indigenous inhabitants of North Africa since time immemorial; currently distributed across a wide extent of country including Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Mali and Burkina Faso. The majority of Berbers (in terms of percentage) are found in Morocco. The Tuareg tribes of the Sahara Desert are also Berbers, whose language Tamasheght is considered the least corrupted out of all Berber languages. (http://www.temehu. com/imazighen/berbers.htm)

n its never-ending “more dog shows are better” philosophy, the American Kennel Club’s Board of Directors voted to allow (if the clubs are mutually agreeable) clubs to hold shows on the same day within the twohundred mile limit. In the release, it states that the board is excited by this new amendment. Isn’t it nice to know that the Board members can get excited. The Board also discussed that judges be allowed to judge 200 dogs per day instead of the 175 already permitted. No doubt this was done to accommodate the newly approved two shows a day. The annual meeting of the American Kennel Club is fast approaching and the election of three directors will take place. The four Delegates running are PATRICIA SCULLY, RONALD MENAKER, CHARLES GARVIN and JAMES DOK. This has been a relatively quiet election without overt electioneering being done. Next week, tens of thousands of people will be heading towards Birmingham, England to attend the Crufts Dog Show. This year’s entry of 21,500 is the highest in the last four years. The entry includes 2,663 foreign exhibits, including 29 from the United States. Some of the highest entries are in Golden retrievers with 599, Labrador retrievers with 548, Whippets 417, Staffordshire bull terriers with 367, Border terriers with 303 and 316 Bearded collies. The only other show to have huge entries this year will be in August, when the

World Dog Show will be held in Helsinki, Finland. That show is sure to draw a large entry, as the Finns have a good reputation for running a smooth and organized event. All of us at DOG NEWS were saddened to hear that MARY LOU TINGLEY, longtime breeder and exhibitor of top winning Briards, passed away this week at the age of 84.Together with her late husband ART they bred under the Phydeaux prefix from their New Jersey home – a prefix that could be found behind many top winners. Following ART’S passing, MARY LOU moved to Connecticut to be near her daughter. A memorial service was held this weekend in Monroe, Connecticut. Those wishing can make a contribution in MARY LOU’S memory to the Briard Medical Trust through the BriardClubofAmerica.org. Our deepest sympathies to her daughter KAREN CHENEY and grandson BRIAN.

CRUFTS GETS RECORD COVERAGE ON CHANNEL 4 he nation’s favourite dog event, Crufts, is to be televised on Channel 4 across three nights for the first time ever this year. Both the Saturday and Sunday of the show, plus an hour and a half of Friday’s coverage, will broadcast on the channel, with Thursday and the rest of Friday’s show airing on More4. With Clare Balding at the helm, Channel 4 and More4 will broadcast the main action from Crufts 2014 at the following times: Thursday 6th March: More4 - 18.30 – 21.00 Friday 7th March: - More4 - 18.30 – 19.30. Channel 4: 19.30 – 21.00 Saturday 8th March & Sunday 9th March: Channel 4 - 19.00 – 21.00 Clare Balding will host daily highlights of the world’s biggest dog event live from the NEC in Birmingham, whilst Liza Tarbuck will look after presenting duties for Thursday’s programme and will join Clare for Friday’s More4 show. The exciting climax of Crufts, Best in Show, will be judged at 20.30 on Sunday and will be shown live on Channel 4. There will be extensive coverage on More4 and Channel 4 of the events in the main arena, including the agility and flyball competitions that are so popular with dog lovers, and the judging of the Group finalists. Coverage will feature discussion on the

T

serious topics of how to buy a puppy and initiatives to ensure healthy breeding. Vet, Nick Blayney, will return to give his views on dog health, along with other experts and dog owners. Reporter Sonali Shah will explore the stories around the show and Kate Beavan will be joining the team as health and welfare reporter. The Scruffts competition will also return and coverage will include features on all the Scruffts finalists as they prepare for the event. Plus, there is the much loved Friends for Life competition, which will see viewers vote via phone for one of five hero dog finalists and owner which they feel should be crowned 2014 Friends for Life. Caroline Kisko, Secretary of the Kennel Club, which organises Crufts, says: “Millions of people will be able to watch the grand finale of the world’s greatest dog event on Channel 4’s Sunday night programme. Crufts is one of the most exciting events in any dog lover’s calendar and the past few years of More4’s coverage, and last year’s Channel 4 coverage of Best in Show, really captured the special relationship between humans and our dogs, and showcased this to millions of dog-loving viewers. “The coverage on More4 and Channel 4 means that Crufts will continue to be essential viewing, whether people are looking for information on choosing, caring for and enjoying life with their dog or simply want to watch dogs of all shapes and sizes showing off a range of special talents.” David Sayer, Commissioning and Development Editor for Channel 4, said: “This year Channel 4 will be showing more coverage of Crufts than ever before, reflecting both its popularity and the passions of its loyal dog-loving audience. Coverage on More4 and Channel 4 will explore a diverse range of issues – from dog welfare and breeding to training and buying as well as reporting on the wins from the show ring and agility arenas. Scruffts, the competition for crossbreed dogs, will also receive lots of coverage this year.” Sunday night’s programme on Channel 4 will include highlights from throughout the day and the final Arena programme, which will include live coverage of the moving dog heroes competition, Friends for Life, an exciting heelwork to music display and the live Best in Show competition. Crufts coverage for More4 and Channel 4 will be produced by Sunset + Vine. Laura Quickfall, London, England

KENNEL CLUB CHARITABLE TRUST OPENS FLOOD FUND FOR DOGS special ‘Flood Fund’ has been set up by the Kennel Club Charitable Trust (KCCT), for those dogs that are in need as a result of the recent floods that have beset the country. The flooding has meant that some people and their dogs have had to leave their homes, whilst others are left marooned and the dogs may be going without food supplies, access to critical veterinary care or medicines. The debris underfoot and ever rising water levels may also be causing dogs injury and damage. The Kennel Club Charitable Trust Flood Fund will enable people to donate to dogs that have become victims of the flooding and for those in need to apply for a grant. Mike Townsend, Chairman of the Kennel Club Charitable Trust, said: “Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the terrible floods. The Flood Fund will help support those dogs that have been injured or that need shelter in these difficult times and we urge those who want to make a financial contribution and those who are in need of help to come forward.” Those who would like to donate to the Flood Fund, by cheque or debit card, or apply for a grant to help a dog or dogs that have become victims of the flooding, should contact Richard Fairlamb, KCCT Administrator, at 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB. He can also be reached by email at richard. fairlamb@thekennelclub.org.uk, or by phone on 020 7518 6874. Laura Quickfall, London, England

A

One Last Ride t was a cold snowy day, training was cancelled due to the snowstorm, and I was left with the unenviable task of when I should make the decision to put my partner of nearly nine years to sleep. Dante was a great dog. He was big, beautiful, black and tan shepherd. I often described him as a look-a-like for the dog in the show “Run Joe Run,” for those old enough to remember that program. He had a regal look, with his big head, ears and large stature. He had his own personality. Most dogs are just dogs, but you sometimes run into ones that are somehow as much human as they are dog. A Type A dog was only to be touched

I


by those closest to him, and sometimes not even by them. Dante was best described as a one-person dog, and as tough as he was for other people to get close to, our relationship never waivered. Every morning when I opened the door to his kennel he would jump up on me, wrap his paws around my waist, get his morning greeting and pat from me, storm up the stairs, and push the door open ready to go to work. During Dante’s career he was able to answer calls in towns as far west as Lee, North Adams, and Shutesbury, and calls as far east as Brighton, and even, for a few of his last successful calls, on the South Shore. Once he was able to track and locate a guy who had just murdered his girlfriend, and another time he located a cash seizure that was several times greater than the previous largest seizure in Commonwealth history. During his career he helped to rid the streets of drugs. He was able to locate and assist in the seizure of more than 1,000 grams of Heroin, more than 8,600 grams of cocaine (one seizure alone of more than 7 lbs. that had been canned mechanically), more than 1,000 lbs. of marijuana, and more than $14,000,000 in cash. Dante was very intelligent; one day when I was out with him I made the mistake of teaching him to open the cruiser door — a task which took five minutes once I showed him how. From that, Dante figured out that doors open with handles, and all you have to do is grab them with your mouth and pull or turn. He took this new knowledge and taught himself to slide open the door that separated us in the cruiser, his way to always be close to me. While on patrol he would occasionally stick his head through for his occasional ear rub. When you see such a powerful, intelligent dog so helpless at times somehow made the events that follow even harder. It all started one day while taking Dante out to his kennel. He collapsed on me, falling like a rock with no control of his body. After several tests it was obvious to the vet that Dante had pulmonary hypertension, a disease of unknown cause that prevented him from getting enough oxygen to his lungs and making him collapse. The right side of his heart was enlarged, causing poor blood circulation. As the weeks went on, he started getting seizures because of the same lack of oxygen to his brain. He had one of these seizures in the yard the other day, and after I sat on

the ground in the snow with him patting him calmly waiting for it to be over, I came in the house. Upon walking in, to my dismay, I realized my wife and two children had been intently watching us to make sure all was okay. But it wasn’t and when I walked in the door, my wife and daughter were crying, knowing what was to be coming, possibly sooner than we were ready. My son was sitting very somberly, thinking if we don’t dwell on it things it will get better. My son and daughter were 3 and 1 when I, respectively, when I got Dante. They knew him practically their entire lives. The day came when it was time to take him to the vet for the inevitable. After more than 2,300 rides that we took together, the dog who had trouble making out to the yard just feet away sat upright in his car for One Last Ride. It was a ride I had I delayed for eight hours, just driving around with him as we did so many times, struggling with the decision to put him down. He sat upright, alert as ever, checking the perimeter always on guard. How does the dog who

can barely breathe remain upright and vigilant for so long? I sit here writing this obituary in a parking lot not two miles before we reached our final destination. My story is as written, and although it jumps about it is written from the heart. I write this story with tears in my eyes and flowing freely down my face. Dante is still somehow sitting upright watching me as I write about him, every once in a while sticking his head through the cage, letting me know things will be alright. But the more he reassures me, the more I wonder if what I am doing is right. I am glad he made it through the holidays. My wife’s birthday was yesterday. I did not want to do that to her; for her to remember her birthday as the day we put down Dante would forever bring a tear to her eye. Much as it does to me as I write this with every new thought and remembrance of my partner, each paragraph brings a new thought and anguish for me. Respectfully submitted.

AKC hopes to clarify common misconceptions about purebred dogs

P

urebreds and mixedbreeds competed against each other for the first time this year in the Masters Agility Championship at Westminster. The Westminster Kennel Club dog show, which concludes today, sometimes attracts controversy for its focus on purebred dogs - despite inviting mixed breeds to compete in the first-ever agility championship this year. The American Kennel Club weighs in by tackling some of the most common misconceptions people have about purebreds. The three most widely publicized myths about purebred dogs include: they were developed only for show; they’re genetically inferior to mixed-breed dogs; and they can only be purchased, not rescued, according to the AKC. The popularity of purebreds suffers as a result of these notions, says Patti Strand, a Portland-based Dalmatian breeder and former AKC board member. For one thing, breeds were developed not for their looks, but rather to

perform specific tasks to help humans. “The dogs we have today that we call purebreds were originally purposebred dogs,” Strand says. “It wasn’t that long ago that most dogs worked for their keep.” Breeds were developed to perform specific tasks such as herding sheep, guarding property, pulling carts or sleds, hunting birds or other game or rooting out pests. As for the idea that purebreds are unhealthier than mixed-breed dogs, the AKC maintains there are no conclusive studies that support this idea. A study published in June 2013 by researchers at the University of California at Davis found that purebred dogs are not at a higher risk of genetic disorders than mixed-breed dogs. Responsible breeders work hard to screen their dogs for genetic diseases and eliminate health problems that run in their gene pool, Strand says. “The whole goal of hobby breeders is to

improve or preserve a breed,” Strand says. “Part of that is eradicating a health problem that it possesses.” Most breeds have an AKC parent club that follows a code of ethics requiring them to screen for genetic diseases that may occur in that particular breed. Strand also refuted the idea that purebred dogs can only be purchased, not rescued. The AKC’s Rescue Network offers purebred rescue dogs available in almost any breed. As for the idea that purebreds are only owned by wealthy families, “today’s purebred dog fanciers don’t fit that stereotype,” Strand says. “They are dog lovers from all walks of life who have come to value the predictable traits that specific breeds have to offer.” For more information about dog breeds, visit the AKC website.
