TWO DELEGATES FROM ONE CLUB???? When a Delegate is elected to the Board of Directors of the American Kennel Club where does his or her fiduciary obligation belong? To the Member club or to AKC? It is a determined legal fact that the obligation of the individual is to the Corporation and not to the Member Club itself. The problem arises of course when there is a conflict between the interests of the Member Club and the AKC. How should the individual vote? On paper he or she should vote in the best interest of the corporation, the AKC. That situation is further exasperated when the club threatens the Board Member/Delegate with the loss of his or her seat if they do not vote the club demands. All too often today is that sort of conflict on the upswing. The way to fix the problem in the eyes of these pages is to permit any club which “loses” its Delegate to the Board elect another Delegate to vote on the day-to-day issues which confront the Delegates themselves and to take away from the sitting Board Member the privilege to directly vote on matters which affect the Delegates generally. The Board Member should be restricted to voting only on matters that come before the Board and not the Delegate Body per se. This would of course require a major change in thinking and philosophy from the Delegates and the Clubs themselves but would enable the Board to act more independently and with less pressure from the Delegates. Additionally it would ensure the member Clubs that their Delegate is voting in the interest of the Club, which should be its paramount interest with which to begin. May be a hard concept for some to accept but ultimately to assure a “fair and impartial” Board vote which considers the needs of the corporation as its paramount obligation this is the only solution possible. And of course the likelihood of this kind of thinking was dealt a severe negative blow at the Bylaws Committee meeting when a discussion of the value of appointing non-delegates to the Board initiated by Gretchen Bernardi seemed to dissolve into the use of outside consultants by the Board instead. There appeared to be no resolution to Mrs. Bernardi’s input on the subject although the 10 Dog News

The

Editorial september 27, 2013

Committee suggested “that while outside consultants are valuable when needed there is no pressing need to appoint them to the Board at this time”!!!! What in the world do outside consultants have to do with the idea of appointing non-delegate members to the Board! Someone either deliberately missed the point of Mrs. Bernardi’s suggestion or sidewinded it totally. THE APHIS 250 It is reported that the 250 slots for the APHIS telephone call held on Thursday the 19th were all filled. Depending upon to whom one spoke it was either a massive bust or a great achievement. Probably somewhere between either extreme falls the truth of its success or failure. Credit AKC with taking a lead here for its constituents and breeders and the Legislative Offices headed by Sheila Goffe for setting the pace in these areas. If there has been one department at AKC which through thick and thin has performed with the fullest and highest of expectations it has been that one. The sale of dogs sight unseen on the Internet is something that must be regulated or attempted to be regulated for sure. An attempt is made in this new law, that is apparent. And while so many people want less interference from the federal government than more certainly this is a place where the USDA can and should exercise its muscle for sure. Not only should this provision about the sale of sight unseen dogs cause at least a glitch in Internet sales it should also affect the puppy farm sale and some of those unscrupulous East European dog sellers to America. AKC REUNITE Well a new name for an existing but expanded operation has come forth. AKC CAR has changed its name to what they consider to be less of a mouthful than the AKC CARanimal recovery organization and will now be known as AKC REUNITE. What with 18 years behind them and known as CAR with over 5 million pets enrolled in their services and revenues up over 10% this year over last the desire to do even better, especially with products and services offered directly to consumers was overwhelming. Together with the marketing agency they hired it was decided to soften its corporate look, connect with consumers, update its web site and improve its tag line and come up with a new identity AKC REUNITE, the way home for lost pets! The fund has in the past had the ability to generate revenue and to protect dogs and cats and other pets too. Now if they can succeed in collecting bad debts from some prior sales all would appear rosy although these pages must admit that after all this time AKC CAR has become a well known and accepted entity in its area of expertise. In this age of social media many name

changes seem to be de rigueur. The next thing to be changed as we understand it is the mixed breed category into that of the All-American dog! And it would seem that Reunite - oops AKC REUNITE - is to donate the foundation money for the newly announced AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers for communities in need. A $250,000 seed has been supplied by REUNITE and each club--member and non-member-- is being asked to donate at least $1,000 to defray the cost of a fully stocked and delivered trailer, which costs $22,000. A Club’s logo will appear on the side of the trailer it sponsors and the larger the donation the larger the logo so that if a disaster hits your community one’s Club’s logo will be on the trailer telling the world how much you care for the pets in one’s community. And of course this can be networked into many clubs in one area working with local Emergency Management teams. And this is where the caveat must enter the picture-the ability to work with the local Emergency Management team must be established in advance of a potential disaster as there is nothing like the unschooled breaking into a Community’s planning without prior training, negotiations and the like. This is truly a joint venture idea which hopefully will be a two way street for all to be accomplished and successfully at that too. THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK Montgomery is soon upon us and these four days of dog shows culminate on Sunday with the great Montgomery Dog Show, which of course is limited to terriers only. It is with heavy heart most approach the weekend as one of the mainstays of our dog show world generally and the terrier world specifically is very ill. Walter F. Goodman, who in August turned 91, is quite sick. Montgomery without Walter seems an impossibility but anyone of us who new him is aware of how he would want the show to go on as though he were in our midst. And should the inevitable occur prior to the show Walter would be proud to know that despite his not being there we will act as though he is there for in spirit he certainly shall be with each and everyone of us in attendance.

Inside The Sport APHIS and AKC At Work By Pat Trotter

Lest you think this column does not appreciate all the good that AKC, the delegate body and the board accomplish: Listen up! You’re about to get information on some vital issues of things being accomplished in the wake of the September 10 Dept. of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) publication of its revisions regarding breeding and selling of animals. It seems you are defined as a “retail pet store” if your business or residence is a place where the seller, purchaser and animal are at the same location. Those who do not qualify as a retail pet store (by selling face-to-face) must obtain a federal license or be limited to four or fewer breeding females on their premises. Perhaps this edict can be a good thing at the same time it strikes fear into the hearts of all who breed purebred dogs, according to AKC’s liaison with APHIS Sheila Goffe. Sheila herself is a Siberian Husky breeder who is AKC’s foremost staff member in working with government activities. According to the government, the idea is to prevent mass sales of animals taking place via the Internet in what might be termed a “buyers beware” situation. In essence, the APHIS hopes to end sales that are “sight unseen.” Nonetheless, such a blanket regulation could very well have a dreadful fallout effect on serious dedicated breeders such as those of us in the dog fancy. Such issues were amongst those Sheila and the 250 breeders partici-

pating in a conference call with APHIS through the auspices of AKC presented in a scheduled conference call on 9/19/13. It is our understanding that working, hunting and breeding stock can be exempted from the designation of retail pet store or dealer. Exactly how one goes about acquiring such a designation is not clear, yet the APHIS declares that the regulation is driven by analyzing the purpose of breeding and the method of delivery of resulting stock. Nonetheless, total clarification of where each small hobby breeder actually fits with government regulations is not totally clear in spite of the good efforts of AKC’s Sheila Goffe and the resulting one-hour conference call with Dr. Gerald Rushin DVM, JD and Kay Carter-Corker, assistant Deputy Administrator for APHIS. I understand the government personnel participating referred back to their original published statements in the usual previously-processed talk we are accustomed to hearing from such people. Fortunately Sheila persevered when time and stonewalling ended the conversation and was able to obtain government agreement to answer those questions submitted by her in writing. For a complete transcript of this important call, go to http://www.akc.org/governmentrelations/usda.aphis.cfm Concerns regarding the lack of a clear definition of the edict limiting “breeding females” are troubling as it is

“It seems you are defined as a ‘retail pet store’ if your business or residence is a place where the seller, purchaser and animal are at the same location.” 14 Dog News

hard for one to know exactly how to apply the rule. Is a “breeding female” any bitch over six months? Is a “breeding female” one that has never had a litter? Is a “breeding female” an older bitch past her days of bearing puppies? Or simply any female that is not neutered? Issues also were addressed concerning the fact that an investigator at one’s residence might interpret a rule differently than those in power who are writing the rules. What else is new when it comes to the government and its unending rules and regulations in this world today? AKC’s liaison cautions anyone who seeks exemptions to consult with the USDA and be prepared to defend your rationale in much the same way you would prepare to defend exemptions in an IRS audit. Even anonymous malicious complaints against one are a threat since the agency does not require them to be signed. In other words, exemptions are an escape hatch at the same time they raise the red flag. Avoiding the category of an establishment that requires federal licensing would seem to be the area of greatest interest to most of us who do not maintain a commercial kennel of any kind. Professional handlers/breeders with boarding kennels and commercial establishments might be well-advised to travel the federal licensing path. However, that pursuit also has its downside due to bureaucratic restrictions which I hope to present in another column soon. As usual with all government manufactured legislation, nothing is said in 100 words that could be said in 1000, thus meaning many things are open-ended dialogue therefore left to the interpretation of the enforcers. Perhaps people will need to seek input directly from APHIS to determine their personal status with the organization. Meanwhile, knowing that AKC is hard at work to help the dog fancy face this crisis is of great personal comfort to all of us who are serious breeders with a lifelong passion for our hobby. Sheila Goffe and the AKC team will continue to monitor this situation on our behalf and update the online information on a regular basis. I am personally gratified to see our AKC fees at work like this even as I long for some like-minded government personnel who appreciate the words attributed to Thomas Jefferson, arguably the greatest of our Founding Fathers: That government is best which governs least.

Montgomery Memories

O

ur “Doggy” life is not all about dogs. Just as much of the magic of this upcoming week involves people, from all over the world, who make their annual crusade to this Terrier Orgy! This is the show where you meet the top dogs and handlers from all over the USA, plus these days many other countries- and in some cases we finally get the chance to compare the top winning dogs from East, West, North, South and the Mid West. Every year this show revives great memories, not necessarily dog related, but which includes friends that sadly are no longer with us. I happened to look through our old guest books from our home in England (every visitor had to sign it in case anything went missing…) and it included names of people who stayed with us anywhere from a night to a couple of weeks – and most of them would turn up at Montgomery which was always something to look forward to. The list includes names like Bea & John Marvin, Josephine Deubler, Eve Ballich, Babbie & Bob Tongren, Kathy Reges, Dan Musser, Ric Chashoudian, Annie Clark, Elsie Simmons, Harold Nedell, Australian David Roche and of course George Ward. Plus many others from all over the globe. There are so many memories about every one of them. Bea & John Marvin were regular visitors and made their annual trip to Windsor dog show and usually also attended the Scottie Specialty and The Fox Terrier Club show. Such nice and interesting people, both so knowledgeable about all things terrier. Still my most prominent memory of them is when Bea heard that Linda Beak, of the famous Newmaidley Wire-and Smooth Fox terriers, had back problems, which made it difficult to drive long distances to the shows, so she brought her a vibrating cushion from 18 Dog News

America which she handed to her at the show dinner for use in her car! The next day on the way home on M6 after the show, we were overtaken by Linda in her Mercedes Gelände Wagen in over 100 miles per hour- and Linda had a big grin on her face. So no doubt the vibrations gave her some kind of relief … Annie Clark was a lady most all admired. I enjoyed watching her judging, did not necessarily agree with what she did, but the way she did it was always impressive! My favorite Annie memory does not include dogs at all, but an evening on a boat on the River Thames in our home town Henley, drinking champagne, eating lobster and listening to The Henley Music Festivals Concert performed by The London Philharmonics, plus a number of world famous soloists. Followed by impressive fireworks. All under the stars and a full moon! It was a hot evening and we all felt sorry for the paying public inside the arena- and I think for all people present which included the organizer Chris Drury, Roz & George Ward, Beth Sweigart, Peter Green plus Annie’s friend, a fellow Scandinavian immigrant and local kennel owner, this particular evening will live with us forever! Those of you who knew the Tongrens and Babbie in particular, knows that she was always ready for hot discussions- and in a party mood, particularly so. I remember her comments on the standard of English Afghans- not very flattering…to say the least! But she was always fun to be around. We had the same problem Babbie and I, we were both married to Swedes, so there was a lot to talk about. Other than that what fascinated me was that she was a “YES or NO” person, never a perhaps or maybe. Her comments when I guided her through our kennels were wonderfully straight forward- and very interesting. Not a terrier person as such, but she definitely had temperament suitable for being one!

Mr. Stander suggested I should write something about a guy from Constantine, MI, sadly no longer with us, by the name of George Ward! As many of you will know, George became a Legend in his own Lifetime. Born in Canada, a second generation terrier handler, he showed dogs for the most successful terrier breeders in the country. I had of course heard a lot about him over the years and watched him in action during many a Montgomery weekend. It was a name you could not avoid if you had any interest in terriers, but probably due to the fact that I knew a lot of other handlers were scared of him; I never approached him at all. That was until the famous AKC show in Philadelphia, where his beloved Scottie Shannon was beaten in the breed. This defeat really hit him hard- so when Mr. Green after realizing that I had never really met the man, finally made the introduction, this giant in the Terrier World had tears in his eyes. As I might have mentioned previously, Mr. Green introduced us with the words: “You share the same sarcastic sense of humor, so you will get along!” And we did- and for the next 20 plus years we spoke on the phone a couple of times a week, spent a lot of time together with him and Roz in the UK as well as the USA. And already the year after the introduction Roz and George came to the UK with another couple from Michigan -Amelia & Dan Musser and we all had the best of times! Our friendship lasted till the end of his days and I know it might surprise many people who knew George that we never had an argument. We could disagree, but respected the other person’s opinion. Or at least I like to think that was the case... I knew from long before I met him that lots of fellow handlers had a lot of respect for him, bordering on fear in some cases, which I as an outsider found hard to understand. Continued on page 70

Do you have any problem with judges and exhibitors attending together pre-show dinner parties or other functions the night or the weekend of a show?

toni sosnoff Sometimes there is no “right” answer. Although all shows must be judged on the merits of the dog on the day, there will always be the occasional cocktail party or dinner, before or after, where exhibitors and judges may cross paths. It has always been my experience that group judges and BIS judges try to avoid the questionable socialization...especially during high profile events. There can be no “policing” of each encounter, party or otherwise, and it is best to pick your moments as a judge or exhibitor where there are large enough groups that include many judges and many exhibitors. Just smile and move on. JIM COVEY I think most judges are more comfortable attending pre-show dinners or functions if they know there is no possibility of an exhibitor being present. However, we all know it happens and we all know how it can sometimes appear. Charles Olvis and LIZ MUTHARD If it’s a charity event, no problem as separate tables can be arranged for show officials, and club dinners sometimes have a mix of attendees, but we personally tend to shy away from private parties on show weekends. Ann Yuhasz I personally don’t have a problem with this and rather like the interaction but there is always the perception from some exhibitor that puts this in the famous gray area. However, have those exhibitors never heard of instant social media? Who needs a party anymore to try to influence you! This is not your 60’s, 70’s or 80’s anymore! 22 Dog News

Question Of The Week By Matthew H. Stander

Lynn Butler No, hopefully judges have integrity and will do their own judging. Bob Stein If there is a possibility that an exhibitor or handler would be showing to the judge after the dinner or other function on the same weekend, then it is wrong. This should not be about a matter of opinion since it is clearly covered in the AKC judge’s guidelines. It is not about the integrity of the judge, but the perception to other exhibitors, handlers and fanciers not in attendance. Wendy and Paul Willhauck Judges and exhibitors alike belong to the Fancy of Pure Bred Dogs. In our opinion, it is perfectly acceptable for them to attend together functions the night or weekend of a show. This is especially beneficial for charity events where we need to work together for a common cause. We all know what would be inappropriate conversation in that situation and should have the integrity to avoid discussing dogs that are being shown.

Kathy Lorentzen As an old timer in the sport (fifty years and counting) I personally have no issue with exhibitors and judges socializing. It used to always be that way. I have always felt that honesty and integrity are not going to be influenced by having dinner in the same room. Fair judging is either there, or it is not. However, with that said, I do feel that we have an obligation to the newer members of our sport to be careful of how they perceive judges and exhibitors socializing. So I believe that common sense on both sides should prevail. Walter Sommerfelt I see no reason why judges and exhibitors should not be able to attend these functions together. It all comes down to the basic concept of integrity. People either have it or they don’t. There was a time not all that many years ago when these functions were not only social events but also places where a great deal of knowledge was shared and no one would have ever accused anyone of any form of impropriety.

F

or a man about to turn fiftythree, my good looks and athletic build (to be taken in jest) are not random acts of nature, but rather they are arduous, endless tasks of eating healthy, exercising regularly, and drinking plenty of water. Every week my running partner, Harper Grey (HG), and I endure long distance runs, ranging from six to thirteen miles along the country lanes surrounding Holly Springs and along the Rappahannock River. This particular September Morn...(Oh Lord, I can’t suppress or resist a brief out of body experience with Neil Diamond) Stay for just a while Stay and let me look at you It’s been so long, I hardly knew you Standing in the door

Stay with me a while I only wanna talk to you We’ve traveled halfway ‘round the world To find ourselves again September morn We danced until the night Became a brand new day Two lovers playing scenes From some romantic play September morning Still can make me feel that way” I break free from Neil’s vocal clutches. This particular September Morn, we are blessed with clear skies and cool weather. HG arrives at Holly Springs exactly at 7:00 AM. As usual, she enters the front door 26 Dog News

and immediately bypasses formal greetings in lieu of the toilet. It’s a runner thing. After which, we both grab our water bottles, HG sets our electronic pacer and we begin our nine-mile run by turning left out of the drive onto route 17. A comfortable pace is set and the odiferous fresh road-killed Groundhog to our immediate right, does not dampen our energetic spirits. “I am feeling fine this morning!” I proclaim to the world. “It sure is a beautiful morning and I know I will feel better after the run.” “Unlike you, my ass is dragging,” HG responds. “Pick it up and move it---no sympathy from me,” I laughingly share, while inhaling exhaust fumes from the passing truck, before turning left onto Bowlers Road. We both find visual comfort in the endless display of late-blooming wildflowers lining the sides of the rural road. At approximately the one-mile mark, we are joined by a jovial canine that finds his athletic stride directly to my right side. “Oh, wonderful--- a stray---a sweet jogging dog, who will eventually follow us back to Holly Springs.” “Oh, he is so sweet. What breed is he?” HG inquires. “Well, I would say part Retriever… part Chow… with a little Shepherd in the mix. I think he might be a SHEPCHOW Retriever,” I wittily add to the conversation. “I can say with certainty--the little fella is very sweet in temperament, strong in the hindquarter, nice feet, good coat texture, short hocks, pleasing expression, and nice ear placement. However, he could use a better front assembly and a bit more neck.” “You can tell all of that by just looking at the dog?” HG asks. “Sure anyone

with an ounce of knowledge of basic canine structure can evaluate a mixed breed on the street. It takes the sophisticated, trained eye, and inherent natural abilities of the professional to discern the subtle nuisances of purebred breeding stock and breed specific traits,”I offer HG. “Well, excuse me-- from the sounds of your description this little happy boy is pretty specific.” “Nope, I do not think so.” I am quick to reply, while our canine runningcompanion moves in front, and picks up his speed to welcome a newcomer at the intersection of Bowlers Road and Southland Farm Road. HG and I turn right onto Southland Farm Road. SHEPCHOW detours onto the grassy area to our immediate right, greeting and sniffing the behind of a Yellow Labrador. Yes, definitely a purebred based from my professional observation. “So, what’s your take on this one---purebred or not?” HG humorously inquires. “She is a Labrador for sure. Decent breed type. I stop talking, catch my breath, and swallow a large swig of water from the bottle I hold in my right hand. HG and I resume our pace with SHEPCHOW and LABRADOR along for the journey. “Well, she actually is good looking. Nice body, good spring of rib, adequate tail, pleasing head, good color, could be a little better behind, could be a bit better in the front, and she is in serious need of this run based on her weight.” I end the evaluation of the new Labrador addition, with the hopes SHEPCHOW and she choose to wander off in the field, leaving HG and me to enjoy our nine-mile run without their companionship. No such luck. The two joyfully skip along, side by side down Southland Farm Road. “Oh, this is just great! Now I will have to find homes for two dogs upon our return. You get to drive home and I will be stuck trying to explain to Murphy French (Our French Bulldog) why Continued on page 74

ogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring- it was peace” (Milan Kundera). I live by this quote. Some days I like to sit outside with my best friend, my dog, in the lush green grass and look up at the summer sun and think nothing is better than this. I was ten when I started 4-H dogs. I was shy and had no idea what I got myself into. I started out with a family dog I had for awhile. She was a Chow-Newfoundland mix that I thought would do well; I was very wrong. So for my second year in 4-H my grandmother got me a two month old Border Collie I chose to name Stetson. Stetson is four now and is the greatest gift I’ve ever received. He has done better than I ever imagined. Reading this you would never know but I was born different than most people. I was born with a congenital amputation of my left hand. Basically I don’t have a left hand. So I bet you’re wondering what does that have to do with showing dogs; it turns out a lot. My whole life everyone’s always tried to help me as if I couldn’t do things on my own. People look at me as if I am useless. My mission is showing them different. I want to be more than the one handed girl. However it’s not just that easy; it takes an extreme amount of practice. I started out like everyone else; clueless. I had no idea how to train this puppy. After the 4-H

leader taught me how to train him I did better. I would go to school and come back and practice everyday. When the county fair came I did better than I had thought possible. So the next year I worked even harder. One day at an out of county show I go to every year, I met Pat Lester. She walked up to me and told me “Congratulations”. She said I had a gift and with practice I could do great things. So about once a month she comes to my house to practice with me. She takes me to different shows and we have definitely improved. She is my mentor and I am so fortunate to have her help. When she told me I was ready for my first AKC show; I was overwhelmed with happiness but I was also terrified. I decided to do rally as my first class. It was crazy how much practice I did that week. I was practicing all the time for that show. We got there and everywhere I looked were these women with the best dogs that have been doing this their whole lives. I looked around that room and felt small. I was a little girl with a fifty dollar dog and no idea what to do. I was waiting to go in. It all happened so fast that it was a blur. After a little while they called the class in for ribbons. As the judge handed the ribbons out one by one I kept thinking the next one is mine. I was the last one to get a ribbon. It was blue I looked at it and it said first. I read it again; it was still a first place. My face lit up with joy. I felt so accomplished that day. Even better, my score was a perfect 100. Ever since then Stetson and I have gone to more and more AKC shows and done amazingly well. I’ve gained so much from the AKC shows such as leadership skills, being more outgoing, and demonstrating a better relationship with my dog. At the end of the day I still sit outside looking up at the clouds as they float past and think to myself that this is perfect. All the practice, blood, sweat, and tears finally worked out for me. The competition at AKC events is more than the ribbons and awards… It’s about the people, the dogs, the experiences, the life long skills, the memories, the good times and the bad. It’s about proving to the world that nothing can EVER hold me back!

The New APHIS Rule and You By Carlotta Cooper

As most of you know, on September 10, 2013, the USDA/ APHIS announced the new rule affecting pet breeders. What this rule does is change the definition of “retail pet store” so that many home dog breeders, including show breeders, will now be covered by USDA regulations. The impact on the purebred dog fancy is potentially devastating. 42 Dog News

T

he most salient points at this time are the following: • If you have more than four breeding females AND you ship any puppies to buyers, you will need to become USDA licensed to breed and sell your dogs. • If you have up to four breeding females, you can sell your puppies any way you like, i.e., ship them, have buyers come to your home, whatever. You do not need to be USDA licensed. • If you have more than four breeding females and you NEVER (never, ever, ever) ship any puppies, you do not need to be licensed. But you need to make sure you do not ship any puppies because the USDA will be checking. You will need to meet your buyer (or his/her agent) in person, with the puppy/dog, to complete the sale, though this doesn’t have to be done at your home. Technically, “breeding females” can include any female animals on your premises that are covered by the Animal Welfare Act, if you sell their offspring. So if you have three bitches and a couple of female barn cats and a couple of female hamsters, that would count as seven breeding females. We do not know if APHIS will actually be this picky or not. But they could be if they follow the letter of the regulations. Dogs bred strictly for hunting, working/security, and for “breeding purposes” are exempt. Even if some of the puppies bred for these purposes don’t work out, it is the breeder’s intention and the way the puppies are marketed that matters. APHIS says that they are aware some of the puppies produced for these purposes ultimately turn out to be pets. Dogs bred for show are NOT exempt. Dual pur-

pose dogs don’t seem to be exempt. Cats and rabbits bred for show and as pets are also included under the rule. (Even mice and hamsters are included.) The exact meaning of dogs bred and sold for “breeding purposes” is still under discussion and this could be a significant exemption for purebred dog breeders, especially for breeders of dogs with breeds that produce fewer litters each year. APHIS uses the example of breeds that register 100 or fewer litters per year, but this is just an example. This area needs more clarification. (In my opinion, I think the argument could be made that many, if not all, breeds are heritage breeds and are being bred to preserve bloodlines, but that’s a discussion for another time.) Rescue groups, shelters, and pounds that are under contract with municipalities are not covered by this rule. This includes events where dogs are adopted off-premises. These groups are exempt. Private rescues and shelters which conduct face-to-face sales/adoptions are also not covered, the same as breeders that conduct face-to-face sales. Rescues, including breed rescues, which pass off dogs from one volunteer to another in “legs” to see that a dog gets to his ultimate destination would seem to be exempt since each person taking possession of the dog is acting as a representative of the rescue and the dog, buyer, and rescue representative will all meet at the last stop. However, rescues that use paid transport (shipping, trucks, etc.) without a representative of the rescue present, would seem to require USDA licensing since they would

be dealers under this rule. There are also some rescues which purchase dogs from shelters or auctions and then sell them for a higher price. These organizations would seem to require licensing as USDA brokers under this rule. If you work with a rescue or shelter and you have questions about whether you need to be licensed, you should contact USDA/APHIS directly. Brick and mortar pet stores are not affected by this rule since their sales are made face-to-face and the buyer can inspect the puppy prior to purchase. Answers about co-ownerships are still unclear. APHIS seems to indicate that they are looking at how many dogs/bitches are maintained on a person’s premises, even temporarily, and not how many someone owns with someone at other locations, but this is not made clear. Answers about what constitutes a “breeding female” are also vague. APHIS says, “Only female animals with the capacity to breed are considered ‘breeding females.’ Females that an APHIS inspector decides cannot breed due to age, infirmity, illness, or other issues are not considered ‘breeding females.’” The problem with this answer is that it means an inspector would have to look at each of your bitches and make a decision which would entail a visit to your home. You would have to prove whether your bitches are capable of breeding or not. This would be onerous and unreasonable for any breeder. According to APHIS, they will use publicly available sources of Continued on page 78

The Fancy Speaks

Thoughts For Putting On A Successful Dog Show PART TWO • Part One was published in the Sept. 13 issue of Dog News By David L. and Deborah L. Anthony

C

an we convince the AKC that they need to start at the bottom and work their way up to revive our beloved sport? The horizon has changed and in order to meet the challenge, we need our leaders to approach the situation with a new plan and show the guidance that is much overdo. Today’s average dog shows are considerably different from years ago. The planning and attention to detail is vastly different.

We have all heard more than once that, “hey it will all come together and we will be fine.” That doesn’t work anymore. Showchairs and committee members are running a large business enterprise nowadays and those who don’t approach it with that frame of mind are destined to failure. We need to learn new ways and get creative in order to keep the sport alive and the public interested in our hobby. If the AKC would evaluate those shows that are successful and publish those techniques for others to learn, it would greatly help the novice and experience showchairs alike, improve and possibly save their ailing events. How about a business plan for all shows to review and consider, help us get our events going so that those entries can increase and the public will come and the cash flow can return! The following is just an example of some things that should be considered when planning an event. No doubt there are many more and again, it must be reiterated that guidance form our leaders is crucial in planning the future of our hobby. 46 Dog News

▼ Exhibitors:

This can be the lifeblood of your show. Keeping them all happy is IMPOSSIBLE, but you must try as best you can. You will never please them all. They require good PR skills and thick skin sometimes. Give them the same things that the professional handlers want, but with the chance to evenly compete with them. We offer treats during groups, special parties after BIS, participation in “Meet the Breeds” with a free gift. Simple things will ensure they keep coming back. Pick out someone for an interview with press that is not from your area to comment on your show. Talk to them and ask questions but most important, tell them THANK YOU for coming to your show. Everyone in the club should be encouraged to say this regularly. Just like the Big Box stores, customer service is your best PR, use it regularly.

▼ Press:

The press and media need to be your best friends. Dogs always make a good human-interest story and establishing a strong on-going relationship with them will ensure regular, positive coverage. Our newspaper runs a teaser ad prior to a larger ad the day before the show. TV coverage gets it out to outlying areas for the general public’s notice. Use someone who is a good speaker and will become the face of the club. First impressions are VERY important. Spend money on advertising, get your sponsors to contribute to that and use their logo in it. Consider renting billboard space, the price is affordable and can really help. Get your coverage just before the show and build up the hype, yes it is a big deal.

▼ Websites:

In this day and age you must have a website, but just as important is the need to have someone that can keep it updated regularly. Poor websites frustrate people and they do not come back. Have a member or if need be, pay someone to have it done right. Many of the things we talk about in this article can be posted in some manner on the site and improve your attendance, entry and end result. Continued on page 86

Are You Ready All For That New Kennel? In The Family by Charles C. Robey

The following kennel facility design is given considering the Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations, as well as the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulations and AKC’s Care and Conditions of Dogs Policy. Consideration is only given to a brief overview of such regulations. A comprehensive regulations review may be obtained from the designated web sites.

K

ennels, like domestic housing, come in all forms and shapes, depending on the breeder’s needs, financial considerations and dog compliment. Smaller dogs are usually housed indoors but larger dogs, for the most part, are usually housed outdoors, in a separate kennel arrangement. However, one tip to remember, if you do plan to mix the dog sizes, you should separate the small and larger dogs. This may require two separate facilities or one combination facility to fit all. THE PLANNING STAGE First, in planning your kennel, it is very important that you do your legal home work. All local dog laws and ordinances should be checked, as well as Animal Control requirements. And in some cases check the governmental Planning Board and/or the Health Department. And when talking with the authorities, be sure to get any dog ordinances or kennel regulations, in writing, along with any mandatory business license fees. • Tip! With today’s nonfor-profit animal activist

This kennel design is a simple kennel diagram, to prompt your thinking. The diagram is not all-inclusive and is not drawn to scale. 50 Dog News

groups constantly looking over the shoulders of professional dog fanciers, don’t get caught up in so-called environmental or animal protection regulations. In other words, keep good documentation, with respect to all phases of your research and planning, including all emails and phone conversations to include dates, times and individuals consulted.

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION Next comes designing and building your kennel facility. There are as many kennel variations as there are house designs. The facility should be cost effectively designed, as to accommodate a sufficient number of staff to provide appropriate levels of care for the number of dogs kept. However, for the sake of simplicity, we will concentrate our information on some variation of the combination indoor/outdoor type facility. I tend to favor an indoor/outdoor run building design, as it is easy to maintain and it also gives the dogs a choice, as to where they want to roam. The main building should be any type heavily insulated durable structure. If a metal building is used, be sure to include a good ground, to curve lightning strikes, as animals tend to draw lightning, which in turn causes fires and serious injury to the animals. The dog doors, exiting the building to the outdoor runs, should be equipped with a locking device in order to confine the dogs during periods of cleaning. As for the outside runs, I tend to recommend rust retardant type fencing, with a cement base, or floor. The base should be slanted so as to allow

good washing drainage. A PVC-type plastic half pipe, running the length of the end of the outdoor runs, and terminating in a septic container, is preferable, for easy cleaning and parasite prevention. Facility should give an adequate height to the outside kennel run dividers, as dogs seem to turn into regular “Houdinis” at certain times of the year to be with their girlfriends and they will climb fences. One inside kennel run should be designated as an isolation booth, to house sick and diseased animals. This booth should be equipped with the proper disinfectants and other needed precautionary equipment. One new preparation now needed, and that should be added to the kennel, is an emergency preparedness plan adequate for the type of facility owned and breeds of dogs maintained. This plan should be posted available to all kennel staff. • Tip! It is very important, when planning your facility, that it is much less expensive to error on the anticipation of future growth up front, rather than an expensive retrofit later. VENTILATION The facility should be well insulated, with the heating, air and ventilation systems being mainly directed to the indoor portion of the kennel. In the summer, depending on the weather and humidity, you may wish to alternate between a fan and the air conditioning, to save cost. • Tip! One uncontrollable expense is the kennel utility cost.

Dedicated In Loving Memory of Rigel The Blue Star Afghan Hound May His Star Burn Brightly by Martine Huslig, MS, BCGC Board Certified Genetic Counselor

M

any understand the need for canine health testing. People will dutifully test their dogs’ hips, eyes (CERF exam), maybe elbows, thyroid, knees and the one DNA test for the BIG recessive genetic disease that has been specifically acknowledged to exist in their breed for years. This is what has been taught by mentors, boards of directors and ethics committees in their respective parent and breed clubs, in order to be a responsible breeder. But how much do people really understand the need for genetic testing? What about less common and less recognized genetic disease in the breed? Every individual carries recessive nonworking or disease genes, many of which are uncommon and can run silently in the family for generations before two carriers are bred together and produce affected puppies. It has often been touted that one reason for inbreeding is to identify and weed out recessive disorders, but how often is this actually done? If the problem is uncommon and unrecognized, affected individuals, especially those that die young, can easily go undiagnosed, especially if each and every puppy is not extensively evaluated. So the problem occurs and reoccurs unknown and unidentified, causing heartbreak and expense. Still no one has “ever heard of that problem before.” Are these hidden genetic diseases any less tragic than hip dysplasia or PRA? In many cases the tragedy is actually far greater. Although it is difficult to quantitate the heartbreak created by disease or disorder, owners with these afflicted dogs spend money, time, energy, and endure frustration trying to figure out what is wrong with their dogs, often to no avail. For a sad and poignant example, I would like to tell you the tragic story of Rigel. After much research, hope, expense and anticipation, Rigel and his litter sister, Trudy arrived. Rigel was a beautiful and promising young, blue male Afghan Hound puppy from Germany, named after the brightest star, the blue star, in the Orion constellation.

54 Dog News

Upon his arrival, Rigel seemed like a normal, happy puppy, although he was thin and down in the pasterns. The breeder claimed that his low weight was in line with his houndy type, and that the issue with his pasterns was caused by running on hard surfaces. As time went on, Rigel’s health seemed to worsen. He did not gain weight and was lethargic. Exams revealed Coccidia, for which he was treated, then Giardia, and a recurrence of Coccidia. His sister Trudy had symptoms that mirrored Rigel’s. They were believed to have arrived with infections and weakened immune systems, but once they were cleared of parasitic infections, they did not gain weight, and they did not improve. Rigel’s pasterns worsened. After more testing, more veterinary consultation, more treatments and more money, Rigel’s symptoms continued to get worse. He had two seizures, his rear legs were weaker and his hocks were slipping. Rigel and Trudy were taken to respective university veterinary colleges in different parts of the country. No diagnosis was made for Rigel after a multitude of tests and consultation with many different specialists; however, one of the specialists who evaluated Trudy felt that she had a lysosomal storage disease. Urine and blood samples were sent on both brother and sister to University of Pennsylvania Metabolic Testing Continued on page 102

Have DogS, Will Travel By Denise Flaim

T

here were a couple of old cards featuring breeds that interested me, and I put them in my electronic shopping cart: For a Poodle friend, a Victorian photo of two miniatures driving mini-chariots pulled by braces of Fox Terriers, entitled “The Race.” For my Sighthound archives, an old advertising postcard from a sewing-machine company with a Greyhound watching intently as a little boy is fitted for a new pair of knickers, the words “Light Running” etched across the lithe dog. And then there was a card that was so odd, unsettling even, that I had to stare at it for quite a few seconds before I understood it. Pictured on a dirt road, with Victorian houses and leafless trees behind him, was a middleaged man in a bowler hat. He was standing on crutches that were unusually short, because his right leg had been amputated above the knee; his left leg was only a stump, and visible behind his pinned-up pant leg was the wheel of his buggy. In his left hand, the legless man held long reins. And attached 56 Dog News

to them, in harness, were two large dogs, mixed breeds probably, though they had an air of Mastiff ancestry about them. “Fred E. Vaillancourt,” the white lettering on the circa 1910 postcard read. “General Advertising Dog Team. Former Grand Trunk R.R. Brakeman.” Who, I wondered, was Fred E. Vaillancourt? Why was he riding around with a team of dogs more than 100 years ago? And why was he on a postcard? I ordered the card, and started to do a little research. Vaillancourt, it turned out, had indeed worked as a brakeman for the Grand Trunk railroad, which operated in the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario; the New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont; and the Great Lake-bordering state of Michigan. Some three years before the photo was taken, Vaillancourt lost both his legs in a railway accident. No longer able to make his living on

the railroad, Vaillancourt took to traveling around in a specially fitted sleigh with built-in holds for his crutches, switching to the four-wheel cart in summer. He peddled novelties and postcards, like the one I had purchased, in order to support himself and his family. Perhaps because of the tourist trade, he spent a lot of time in the Adirondacks; according to one book about the region, he was particularly popular at lumber camps, whose woodsmen faced equally perilous and potentially disabling work. “Fred E. Vaillancourt from Maine, was in Chestertown for several days at the Rising House with his team of dogs,” reads one contemporaneous New York newspaper account, adding that he drove from Warrensburgh to Chestertown – a distance of about 11 miles – in two hours. “The dogs are well broken and in summer he hitches them to a wagon. … He is able to get about the country with the aid of his dogs and his agreeable manner has made


him many friends in his travels.” Fred E. Vaillancourt was just one of dozens of itinerant Americans who travelled the country in the first half of the 20th Century, trying to stir up interest in the length of their journey (oftentimes, coast to coast), their mode of transport (pushing wheelbarrows, walking on stilts, rollerskating), and, in the case of Vaillancourt and many others, the shock value of their disabilities. They were a micro-version of that most exploitive of venues, the freak show, except their subjects were self-employed. Some of these travellers were even able to get corporate sponsorship from shoe or tire companies. Vaillancourt wasn’t the only one to use canines as his “hook” for notoriety: At about the same time, in 1910, C.W. Warren traveled in a four-wheeled bicycle from Washington to New York, “pushed” by four dogs. And two years later, James

Damrel of Mellen, Wisconsin, and his wife were driving across the country in a sledge pulled by five timber wolves, promoting “Cream of Rye” for the Minneapolis Cereal Company. Well, reportedly driving across country: Conflicting press reports suggest that they probably never got out of the Midwest. Whatever became of Vaillancourt? According to the book “Adirondack Lakes,” he was attacked by one of his dogs. Rising to defend his master, the other dog killed his harness-mate. It’s not known if Vaillancourt rebuilt his team. His end wasn’t a happy one, if I’ve found the right obituary: Genealogical records note that a Fred Vaillancourt was born on New Year’s Day in 1873 in Eagle Lake, Aroostook County. If that’s the right Fred Vaillancourt, he would have been in his later 30s in my postcard. He died at age 64 in the same town in which he was born on November 29, 1937. The medical

note indicates “gangrene L. Ex.” – shorthand for gangrene of the lower extremities. Perhaps just as fascinating as what I learned about Fred E. Vaillancourt and his mysterious dogs is what I didn’t: Where did he get the idea to turn his tragic accident into a revenue stream? He and the dogs look so somber – did he get any satisfaction from being “on stage,” or was it simply a pragmatic solution? Where did his dogs come from? How did he train them? Like the very nature of his travels, Vaillancourt was an ephemeral, fleeting figure. A man and his dogs, forever immortalized on a frayed postcard, inviting far more questions than answers.

Are The Laws Allowing Service Animals To Access Public Places Being Abused More Often? Based on the increased number of media reports concerning abuses of the laws that allow service animals to have access to public places, one would conclude these incidents are happening more often. But are they? And, if not, what’s motivating the increased media coverage?

By Sharon Pflaumer

I

n order to address these issues, an understanding of the laws governing service animal access is needed. While one might think they’re pretty straightforward, in fact, they’re quite complex. In addition to state laws, there are three Federal laws under the jurisdiction of three different Federal agencies, which define service animals and provide regulations and rules for access. These laws and their respective agencies are the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Fair Housing Act (FHAct) – the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Two of these Federal agencies differ in their definition of a service animal and the regulations for access. The third coined the term, “Assistance Animal,” and provides a definition and regulations for it which differ from the others.

Americans with Disabilities Act

ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability under certain circumstances. It mandates access to all Title II and III entities for service animals. Title II and III entities essentially include any place the general public is allowed to go. 58 40 Dog News

Beginning on March 15, 2011, the ADA Guidance Document only recognized dogs as service animals and further indicated that the type of training they receive is their defining characteristic. “What elevates a dog from the status of a pet to the status of a service animal, according to ADA, is the special training it received that enables it to perform disability-related tasks of benefit to a disabled person,” Joan Froling says. She is the co-founder and Chairperson of the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners (IAADP). IAADP is a non-profit, crossdisability organization representing people partnered with guide, hearing and service dogs. “Some examples of these tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf to specific sounds, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person

who is having a seizure, and reminding a person with a mental illness like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD] to take prescribed medication,” she says.

Service Animal vs. Service Dog

When ADA first was signed into law in July 1990, the term service animal was used instead of service dog because a small group of people were training capuchin monkeys to assist quadriplegics at the time and DOJ didn’t want to exclude them. “It was never dreamed that some people would take the term service animal to include snakes, pigs or other farm animals and attempt to gain access for them. At the same time, there were some people with a disability, who had a pet, and felt they should be able to take Continued on page 104

s one can imagine, the USDA APHIS was inundated with phone calls and questions in the days following the announcement that its ruling would be published on September 18. Though my calls weren’t returned by last week’s deadline, as promised, I did receive not one but two return calls from APHIS Supervisors. After a few rounds of phone tag I connected with Dr. Ellen Magid, an APHIS Supervisor who accompanies inspectors that investigate questionable breeders.

compliance and work it into the existing structure for people who refuse to get a license and need one. Is APHIS going to be capable of doing this? We don’t know what the workload is going to be. We can’t say we can or we can’t. Whatever Congress asks us to do we’ll do. How we’re going to manage an increased workload we just don’t know.

LEASH

Can you define ‘breeding female’ more clearly? For us, it starts as any intact female. It doesn’t matter if you choose to breed it’s if it can be bred. We look at determining factors on whether you need a license or not. If there’s some overriding factor that it cannot breed it’s up to the breeder to let the inspector know that it can’t be bred.

What if a breeder does health checks on hips and eyes that aren’t complete until the bitch is two years old but technically it can be considered a breeding female by APHIS before this age – would it count towards the breeding threshold? If it’s part of the breeding kennel we probably will still count it. You might need a license. It would count towards the threshold if it’s on the premises. Five in total you’d need a license. What if the breeder has a female breeding dog on the premises as well as two intact cats and two intact rabbits? Does the combination of 5 breeding females count towards being regulated? The four breeding female rule only applies to dogs, cats and small pocket pets (i.e. hedgehogs and the like). We wouldn’t count them that way. We’d be looking at what’s in the business but it’s something else to discuss. Rabbits are counted differently; the number of females wouldn’t matter. For hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. that a breeder sells as a pet, you’d have to be making $500 a year before you’d need a license. What if a breeder’s state limit allows 10 breeding females? Does the APHIS ruling supersede it? No. We don’t supersede state regulations. Ten breeding females would need a license with both of us. What if someone co-owned 400 breeding females but only kept four on his premises? They wouldn’t need a license? Theoretically. If there’s more than four on any premises, then co-owner two would need a license. It depends on their method of selling. “Sight unseen” would need a dealer’s license. If all transactions were done face to face they wouldn’t need a license. That’s tricky. If a co-owner has four breeding females on premises and is a co-owner with 100 other people who all keep four breeding females on their premises they could all avoid regulation, correct? It’s very tricky. We haven’t delved very deeply into that yet. With simple co-ownership we’re looking at the premises. 62 Dog News

APHIS Answers

ByShaun Coen The ruling allows breeders to ship ‘breeding prospects’ that end up as pets without being regulated. Is that a loophole that could be exploited? It could be. Not every one in the litter is going to be a good ‘breeder’. It doesn’t meet standards, or whatever, and quite a few sell as pets. It would be up to us to figure out it’s not [a breeding prospect]. What about the working dog exemptions? It would work the same for working dog exemptions. If you raise 6 litters a year and three quarters of them are going out as pets, then you need a license. Unless of course if everything is sold face to face. With the advances in technology, Skype and Facetime and video chat capability, if a buyer has a relationship with a breeder and a contract is drawn up and the breeder offers a 100% money back guarantee, why is it necessary for the transaction to be done in person? In order to meet the pet store exemption, the buyer, seller and animals have to be at the same place. What about using a third person intermediary? You can. The concept of buyer’s agent is out there, as long as there’s a bonafide relationship with the buyer. It’s kind of mentioned in the preamble even with the electronic advances you still don’t know if that’s the animal that’s going to arrive on your doorstep. Can the concept of buyer’s agent be exploited? Can the agent pick up a dog roadside and then ship it overseas, for example? It’s a possibility people will exploit it. I think we’ll find it out in time if a person’s acting as a dealer. How can APHIS enforce these rulings? We’ll do it the same way we do our current activities. Start out trying to educate. Go through the pre-licensing process and make routine, unannounced inspections. If they’re not in compliance we start in an educative mode. We write letters, issue warnings, do more frequent inspections. If we can’t get compliance they we turn it over to investigation and enforcement services. They we go ask for fines and suspensions before an administrative law judge. We don’t start at the far end of enforcement. We want voluntary

What is the guesstimate of new licensees? We can guesstimate somewhere between two and five thousand new licensees. We have no way of knowing if that’s really too low or too high a number.

How many inspectors are there? We’ve had a few open positions we’re trying to fill. We probably have less than 100.

Is there money in the budget to afford this? I have not seen the projected inputs for the 2014-15 budget. I believe for the budget that went forward for 2014 they had asked for some additional resources. We don’t know if we’ll get that or not. Is it doable? We’ll do it. There’s all kinds of things that we do. We may not get to everyone right away. We’ll work them into our existing structures. We have inspectors out. They have a workload. They inspect. The better places with less problems get inspected less frequently and the places with more problems get inspected more often. How is the ruling going to be enforced? Are you relying on breeders reporting themselves to you? Right now we are relying on breeders to contact us. There will be people – the bigger humane groups have a list I’m sure of the people they think need a license. It will give us a good start. How will you react to the information provided by Animal Rights groups? If they provide us with reliable information, that’s fine. If there’s a phone number or an email address we’ll probably send out an inquiry. In the very beginning we’ll take everyone’s word for it. As things roll out, we’ll see. We have to verify everything. We try to find out, that’s our initial approach. How will you deal with bogus reports or complaints? At first, we’re going to take everyone’s word on these things. We get things like that now, complaints. We just go check it out. We talk to the breeders, ask questions, give them the materials they need to get licensed. What protection does a reputable breeder have against unfounded complaints? If we get a complaint we’re duty bound to respond to it. If we get the same one over and over we’d stop visiting and writing responses. We can’t control the members of the public. What’s your take on the ruling? We’re pretty confident that it’s going to do some good for the bigger ‘sight unseen’ animal sellers. They’ll stay in business and we’ll license and inspect them. The public will see the animal they will buy. If they think it’s sick they have the opportunity not to buy it. Public oversight will be good for the animals in the long run. Any other advice for breeders and readers of Dog News? We’re starting to get some new questions and answers that will be posted on our website. Maybe once a week check with our web page for updates (www.aphis.usda.gov). We’re trying to get all of the questions from the major groups [including the AKC] organized to be more user friendly.

irst of all I want to apologize to Bill Newman. It was not until I read the Board and Delegate Minutes, which was two or three days after I wrote my reaction to the Long Branch cluster where I questioned Bill’s absence (along with others) that I found out he was not feeling well. That certainly explains his absence from the shows that were held the weekend before the meeting. Along with all his friends and acquaintances we wish him a speedy recovery.

W

ell as I write this column there are only 5 days left in the month of September for the Judges Task Force Committee to release the first of its scheduled “Action Plans”. I just sent a reminder of this fact to the members of the Committee who are Charles Garvin, Doug Johnson, Kent Delaney and Daryl Hendricks as well as to the AKC Communications Department, which sent out the original release. It specifically stated that the target date would be September 2013 for the release of the analysis of previous surveys of judging applicants. What is the status of this project I would like to know. The entire release and its objectives were printed in the

AND MORE column on page 44 of the August 23rd column and for those of you who may have missed it, it is available as are all issues of DOG NEWS on our web site www.dognews.com. As I wrote in that article the most surprising thing to me was that the JTFC was charged with finalizing the composition of the Judges Review Committee. I am totally confused about whether or not that is a Staff or a Board decision but certainly never thought it fell onto the Judges Task Force Committee Members to make that sort of call. Whether or not to reopen some sort of invitational system and to end the moratorium on it is to be made by December 2013 “IN A FAIR AND IMPARTIAL MANNER”. It will be interesting of course to see the results of that call (if and when it occurs) since the implication of course is that the prior system was both unfair and partial. No mention was made of the masking device which not only has the name of the applicant blackened out but the clubs they have adjudicated and the size of the entries are blackened out as well. Someone who judges a National Specialty is treated equally with the one entry breed judge at Podunk!!! Now that is hardly a sign of being fair or impartial to my mind at any rate.

American Staffordshire Terrier

MALIGNED, MISUNDERSTOOD, MISJUDGED AND MISLABELED By M.J. Nelson

A

ll of the adjectives in the headline describe the American Staffordshire Terrier. If ever there was a breed pronounced guilty of a variety of sins, based not on factual evidence but simply on its resemblance to another breed, it is the AmStaff. Lawmakers from the most local levels all the way to Congress have proclaimed pit bulls and AmStaffs to be one and the same without bothering to check with the AmStaff parent club or the American Kennel Club. If it looks like a pit bull in their eyes, it must be one. What is worse, all too often politicians don’t bother to correct their error even when they are informed that AmStaffs are not bulls. In the news business, this is known as not letting the facts get in the way of your agenda. Because of this erroneous perception and the subsequent refusal by politicos to admit their condemnations of “pit bull” type dogs may have been overbroad, AmStaff owners find themselves spending enormous amounts of time, and in many cases even more money, showing the world that the breed is a devoted companion known for its ability to get along with and even protect children and their families. In fact, Petey, the canine pal of the kids in the old Our Gang comedies, later called The Little Rascals, was Lucenay’s Peter, one of the early AKC-registered AmStaffs. “My husband grew up with AmStaffs so when we decided to get a dog, it was important to him that it be an AmStaff. We purchased our first dog totally unaware that the public viewed them with great prejudice. We quickly found out. When I tried to join my first obedience club, they were extremely leery about letting me join because Daisy was ‘vicious’ according to the media. She soon changed their opinion. However, we had learned by then that Daisy had to be better behaved than the average dog just to be perceived as an ‘average dog’

I also saw him eyeing another dog during the long down on his second CDX leg so I also quit doing obedience with him. He continued in agility and schutzhund but since I detected a possible issue with him in the two other sports and I was concerned that he might do something to set back all the headway I had made locally with public relations for the breed, I did the responsible thing and didn’t continue with him in activities where there was a potential problem. Unfortunately, part of the problem with the breed’s image is the result of conformation exhibitors who do not build the proper relationship or want to train their dogs to do anything except what’s required in the show ring or, for that matter, have the knowledge to do any training other than what’s needed for conformation. Way too many of these people think it’s okay that their dogs are aggressive toward other dogs because they will always be leashed around other dogs.” “I always have believed that the most

effective route to acceptance for our breed is to show that they can work around other dogs and excel in performance events,” said Denise Wedel MD, who owns Barx (Ch Dauntless Barkley Indy Zimmer UD AX OAJ RA), Stormy (Ch Stormy (Dauntless Intrepid Stormwatch CD NA NAJ RN), Bond ( Ch Dauntless Diamonds are Forever CDX OA OAJ RA) Lil (Ch Dauntless Diamond Li UD AX AXJ RA), Blizzie (MACH Dauntless Winter Stormwatch UD RE) and Henri (Ch Dauntless King’s Ransom CDX RA.) “I have occasionally encountered exhibitors who had concerns about my dogs but I try not to be defensive. I find myself looking at an intact German Shepherd or Rottweiler warily on occasion myself and I have to remind myself that my dogs are likely generating a similar response in the Poodle owner next to me. I’ve been around long enough so

that most of my fellow exhibitors know that I take my breed seriously and I don’t show my dogs until they are ready to deal with the environment and the exercises. I attend workshops and run-throughs so the local folks get to see my dogs in action in a variety of activities before the actual show situation. AmStaffs are smart and athletic. Although they are terriers and have some of the traits of that group, such as distractability, that might be an obstacle for performance events, they also have many characteristics of the working group. The history of the breed supports this as in the 1920s and 30s these dogs’ ancestors–Yankee Terriers– were on every farm guarding the children, herding cattle, chasing off large predators, killing vermin and generally doing just about anything a dog could do for a farmer. We see these roots in the AmStaffs’ willingness to work and adaptation to all sorts of training in this breed. They are resilient and generally take correction well as long as you are fair.” “AmStaffs are intelligent, determined, athletic dogs which means they’re easy Continued on page 114

b a bbling Montgomery Memories Continued FROM page 18

I believe Ric Chashoudian was his No 1 fan and supporter, which I found very interesting, as I don’t think many handlers have influenced the style of terrier presentation the way Ric did! But in Ric’s book George was always No 1. And when Ric started judging, George NEVER lost even a class under him!! George made the serious mistake of introducing golf into my life, for which I will forever blame him. As the avid competitor he was, money was always involved. I remember on one occasion I declared that I had done so badly lately, so I would not play for money!! In seconds he and his clubs were back in the van with the words: “Well, then we might as well go home!” So of course I had to give in. We played for a few Dollars- and I WON”. Four hours lately we were driving back home. Not a word spoken the entire way, but I know the grin on my face really annoyed him! Many of you witnessed or have at least heard about his Pool matches against George Rood, which he normally lost. He was also a huge sport fan and a competitive cyclist in his day. He always followed the Tour de France from start to finish – and on occasions he had almost the entire Notre Dame’s football team playing Pool in his party house! And he loved it! The only time I believe I really p…ed him off was in 1990. I was invited to judge WFT’s at Montgomery in 1991, but a call from Josephine Deubler asked me to replace Frank Sabella in 1990. At first I was a little reluctant, as I would have preferred to judge “my own” entry. An argument that was met by: you will get the chance to do that in a few years! (But has so far never happened!!) I called George telling him: You cannot show! And maybe that was the only serious conflict of interest we ever had, but he gave in and did not show! Although he even 20 years later couldn’t understand why! And how the hell could I put up that bitch??? George was a true artist and when it came to terrier coats, a Magician! In many ways I like the rather old fashioned style in which he presented his dogs. Such a contrast to what Ric did. Personally I was trying for something in the middle, more like another true artist. The guy from Wales. 70 Dog News

Be it in his own kennel or in ours, I enjoyed just sitting watching him, with fingers only doing magic things to a dog’s body coat. George did not go to shows to compete. He went there to win! And his dogs were always in coat and condition fit to win. He did not take defeat lightly- and if you as a judge had the audacity to place him second, you were not likely to get another entry from him in the near future. Particularly if you beat him to a dog which was not in top shape— even if you happened to think the dog itself was better! And I think that was his attitude to whatever he did, be it dogs, golf or pool. If you happened to work for him, helped him show a dog and did not win: You were just a failure, so I never even suggested that I at any time should help him show any dogs…as I just did not mind being beaten by a better dog!! Which he could never understand. George was famous for always showing dogs very disciplined and totally under control! I on the other hand wanted the terriers I showed to be free spirits, trained with very few restrictions so they looked like being likely to “explode” at any moment. But still controllable. Which was another reason he did have suspicions about my sanity! By the way, the only serious disagreement we ever had concerned TONSILS. He was convinced that they were the roots of all evil- and I must admit when we followed his advice a few timeshe seemed to be right. The fact that my own tonsils are still intact makes me wonder: What if???? But then again, I don’t think their removal could possibly cure my shyness? Good or bad, I feel pretty certain that there will never be another George Ward! The number of Groups and Best in Shows he won during his career will most likely be hard to match. Although there is no doubt that the breed closest to his heart was the Wire Fox Terrier, the success he had with the Scottie Shannon, which actually for a time gave him a place in the Guinness Book of Record for most Best in Show wins ever, was his proudest achievement. For myself and my family George was a loyal and kind friend, but I know that he in many people’s eyes was a” dog lover” more than a “people lover.” There are many stories being told that

might not be too flattering, but since moving here and meeting many “grassroots people” I have been pleasantly surprised, when mentioning his name, by the number of people who have told me how kind and helpful he was to them when they started out. He was very appreciative to his generous clients and none more so than his employers for so many years, Amelia & Dan Musser and when he the first time took us to Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel it was with a pride as though it was his own. George always took time to exercise- and his trampoline was used every day. (I think he believed that would improve his golf game, which it probably did). So he was in great shape, but I still found it hard to believe that anybody, especially in your 80ies, could drive non-stop for 23 hours from Constantine, MI to Venice, FL to play golf with us for a week. And he did it on several occasions. Personally I think it was a blessing that his life ended at a dog show, more or less instantly, with no long and painful hospitalization required. There have been times when I wished I could still phone him, especially when Europe won The Ryder Cup or when his favorite Lance Armstrong got into trouble… If you ask me about my favorite George memory?: My idol in the terrier world growing up was the famous English Terrier handler Ernie Sharpe. I spent hours, hours and hours watching this guy from a distance, preparing his terriers at shows. But he was another guy with a reputation that made him rather unapproachable. Well, I kept watching and trying to copy what he did, which must have worked, as when a Welsh immigrant, named Peter Green, first judged in Sweden he (after dumping all my dogs) asked me if I wanted a job in the US and if I had worked with Ernie Sharpe!!! Ernie moved to Italy to manage a famous terrier kennel, but when his wife died moved to Australia where his daughter lives (and he still lives). He came to spend a few weeks with George and Roz in Constantine when we happened to be there. To witness the respect these two Legends from opposite sides of the Atlantic had for each other was really something. Just sitting listening to their discussions about dogs and people from the past was a fascinating - and hopefully also a learning experience. I don’t think God makes people like Ernie and George any more and sadly most of their memories will be leaving with them.

TheLighter Side of Judging Continued FROM page 26

I have abandoned my devotion and love for him for two wandering strays.” I attempt to push the thought from my mind and focus on the run. I slow my breathing, lower myself into the stride, and try to relax. We turn left off Southland Road onto Long Point Road. Long Point Road is a private, narrow gravel lane, which leads to the water. September morn We danced until the night Became a brand new day Two lovers playing scenes From some romantic play September morning Still can make me feel that way I sing to myself, hoping SHEPCHOW and LABRADOR make a mad dash into the dry cornfield for frolicking and dancing until the night falls. The four of us, yes I said four of us, run to the end of Long Point Road to the water’s edge, turn around, run back to Southland Farm Road and turn left towards Catchpenny Lane. With one-quarter of a mile remaining until we reach Catchpenny Lane, SHEPCHOW and LABRADOR make a mad dash forward and to the right. “Oh, please, oh please, oh please! Run away and play forever,” I quietly preach. The two are out of sight and both HG and I sigh in unison. No sooner do we resume our comfortable running pace, that not one, not two, but three canine creatures fly out of the woods to our right, soaking wet and covered in mud. “OH NO! You damn little creatures!” HG screams as SHEPCHOW shakes, releasing copious amount of mud and water all over her running pants. I move quickly ahead in a zigzagging pattern in an attempt to avoid the wet monsters. The three obviously did their Meet-andGreet in the wet marshy area alongside our jogging route and now proceed gaily along with us, as if we had been littermates. “Hell, I am beginning to feel like the Pied Piper of Essex County, luring all the local stray dogs away with the music of Neil Diamond. That’s it! I need to get Neil Diamond out of my head and then they will all go home,” I laughingly impart to HG. The new addition to the running parade is a high-stationed, long-legged square dog, cream in color with brown spots, short hair, resem74 Dog News

bling a cross between a Labrador, American Staffordshire Terrier, and a Pointer – (LAP). LAP appears to be well fed, in good condition, and loved. Like the other two, LAP bears no identification. LAP, running alongside HG, approaches the first of two inclines we experience during our run. “Oh hell I hate these hills,” HG cries. “Stop complaining and move your ass!” I coach with the force of a Drill Sergeant. I also take note of the effortless ease with which LAP glides forward, up the hill, in front of HG. I follow in stride with SHEPCHOW and LABRADOR at my side. HG and I come to the end of Southland Farm Road at the Rappahannock River. SHEPCHOW, LABRADOR and LAP all turn right onto Catchpenny Lane, leading the way as if we have been a running team for years. “Maybe when we get to the end of the lane, they will be so inspired by the marina that they will choose to stay,” I, once again, implore of the Dog Gods in charge of doggie heaven. HG feels the pain and fatigue of the halfway mark. I purposefully slow the pace in an attempt to give her time to hydrate, re-group, and focus on the return journey. All five of us, make the U-turn and begin re-tracking our running steps. The three dogs never seem to tire. They keep a steady pace, close to our sides, naturally aware of our timing, without interfering in our own strides. Our tempo increases. I can feel HG’s recovery, based on her ability to keep pace with me and with the dogs. We come to the end of Southland Farms Road. “Wonderful! Only 1.6 miles to go,” I gladly share. HG takes a gulp from her water bottle, offering a quick smile in return. The last 1.5 miles require determination, focus, and strength. The immediate one-mile gradual incline is a true test of our running dedication. The wildflowers on the side of the road become a blur, the Bald Eagles flying overhead are not in focus, and we do not flinch at the half-dead Copperhead Snake in the middle of the road in our quest to conquer the hill. I reach the top along with SHEPCHOW and LAP---ahead of HG. She and LABRADOR are reduced to slow motion. “Come on---you can do it!” I cheer from the top. We pass the one-mile mailbox marker and LAP takes a determined left hand turn onto Monte Verde Road

and continues on, alone. “I think he thinks we are running in that direction,” says HG. “Well, maybe not. Maybe he’s returning home,” I wishfully think. We continue our straightforward path. Fifty feet ahead, there is a small ranch-style house on the left-hand side of the lane with a duck-hunting boat in the drive. LABRADOR perks up, quickens her pace, runs to the front porch, and flops down. “Well, I will be damned! I guess you’re next SHEPCHOW,” I announce directly to the dog. The three of us arrive at the exact point where SHEPCHOW greeted us at the beginning of our run. I watch in anticipation of him choosing to move left instead of right. We pass the turn and SHEPCHOW does not leave our side. “Damn it! Go home and leave us alone,” I say in a last ditch attempt to escape SHEPCHOW, before turning right onto VA State Route 17--- a four-lane highway and before risking his life on the thoroughfare. No such luck! HG and I turn and proceed north on 17 for the last one-quarter mile to the entrance of Holly Springs. Twenty or so feet from the driveway entrance, SHEPCHOW becomes enamored with the oh so entrancing sight and smell of the odiferous dead groundhog. At the same time, a man on a bicycle is traveling southbound on 17 in the northbound lane. We all collectively meet as HG and I turn into the driveway at Holly Springs. I look to my right. SHEPCHOW clenches the dead groundhog eagerly between his jaws. He looks quizzically first at us and then at the man on the bicycle, as if asking our permission to follow the bike. “Yes, please go with him and take the dead groundhog, too,” I silently give my grateful blessing. The feeling of the gravel drive under our running shoes is a welcome home---a sign of the end of a wonderful September Morn. September morning Still can make me feel that way I sing aloud to whomever might listen. HG takes no notice of my vocal abilities. She enters the house before me, uses the bathroom (it’s a runner thing), and before departing, jokingly shares, “Looking forward to our next run. Oh, and by the way---next time, ditch the voice and bring your musical pipe.”

The New APHIS Rule and You Continued FROM page 42

information to identify breeders who they think might need to be regulated. They will look at customer complaints against breeders and Internet retailers. They will review marketing and promotional materials for breeders and Internet retailers. They will look at public information available online to identify sellers that might meet the new definition of commercial breeder. This will probably include puppy web sites, breeder web sites, state commercial breeder information, state tax information, and perhaps airline information for puppy shipping data. They might look at dog show catalogs and other dog show information which is readily available online. If you have a breeder web site, now would be the time to look it over and see what information you are providing to USDA/APHIS about your dogs. As far as compliance goes, APHIS says that they will be using a phased implementation for their initial “prelicensing inspections” and compliance inspections. But the rule doesn’t go into effect until 60 days from the time the rule is posted to the Federal Register. (As of September 16, the rule has not been posted yet; but it should be posted soon.) APHIS uses a risk-based inspection system so they are more likely to inspect someone they deem to be at a higher risk of being noncompliant with the rules. On the other hand, we can all expect that there are animal rights people chomping at the bit to call in complaints about show breeders. Wherever you live, you need to be aware of who these people are and that they could cause trouble for you with APHIS. If you are already state-licensed then, according to APHIS, you are probably less likely to be USDA inspected. But you should remember that there are differences in licensing requirements. The USDA limit is four bitches (with different shipping requirements) to be considered a hobby breeder. However, many states have a much higher threshold to be considered a hobby breeder. You might not need a state commercial breeder license in some states unless you have more than 10 bitches, for example. So, the two requirements can be quite different. As for costs to become USDA-compliant, right now that is a wide open subject. Most dog legislative experts believe that USDA/APHIS is seriously underestimating how much it would cost to become compliant, especially if a dog breeder needs to make any physical improvements to their home or facilities. We still strongly disagree with APHIS’s contention that someone can keep dogs in their home, and let them have free run of the house, and meet Animal Welfare Act standards. And most home 78 Dog News

breeders that we know would strongly object to moving their beloved pets to kennels in order to meet AWA requirements. In essence, the rule that was passed is very little different from the proposed rule. The major change is the fact that buyers do not have to come to your home to buy their puppy. You can meet the buyer anywhere with the puppy/dog. As long as the sale is made face-to-face, APHIS will be satisfied and you won’t need to be licensed. In fact, you can have as many breeding bitches as you like as long as every sale is made face-to-face. Which kind of blows up the whole animal welfare aspect of the rule. You could theoretically be keeping your dogs in the worst conditions imaginable, but as long as you meet the buyer face-to-face and the puppy looks good, APHIS will be happy. We should expect to see an uptick in puppy sales in Walmart parking lots but that really can’t be helped. That’s what APHIS

ads for purebred puppies. At a time when AKC registration numbers have been falling, this rule will make it more difficult for breeders to advertise and find buyers for their puppies because of fears that APHIS will come knocking on their doors. It’s true that this rule won’t affect every breeder. There are plenty of breeders who have four or fewer bitches. But there are also lots of outstanding purebred dog breeders with more than four breeding bitches and they will be facing some hard choices. If you are one of these breeders the best advice I can offer is not to do anything rash. Do not get rid of any dogs or have any bitches spayed. Do not do anything that can’t be undone. Don’t destroy your breeding program out of fear at this time. This rule doesn’t officially go into effect until November and it will take APHIS some time to get up to speed. There are important exemptions in the rule which

“We still strongly disagree with APHIS’s contention that someone can keep dogs in their home, and let them have free run of the house, and meet Animal Welfare Act standards.” is pushing us to do. Such roadside sales are illegal in California and in many cities, so that’s a definite problem. The AKC has stated that they are extremely disappointed with the content of the new rule and they are going to “assess all options” for their ongoing concerns. “[A]s a matter of company policy, the American Kennel Club does not release the registration information or history of any customer without a court order.” That’s good to know because USDA/ APHIS may be requesting such information from breed registries. This new rule poses a serious threat to purebred dogs (as well as purebred cats and rabbits). It could cause some people to stop breeding rather than try to comply with the regulations or become USDA-licensed. It will almost certainly have a chilling effect on how dog breeders interact with the public and reduce

will allow many breeders to continue to breed, even under this rule. We will also need to see if there will be any legal actions challenging the rule by animal groups. I know many people are upset and confused by this rule. Some people even think that no one is doing anything at the moment. Let me say that this isn’t true. There are many groups working night and day to dissect the new rule to see what it really says and how it will affect breeders. No one is giving up on purebred dogs. We are all stronger than this rule. But we can’t act until we know exactly what the rule says. It’s 91 pages and it takes some time to digest it and put questions to APHIS about many parts of it. So, please hang in there and know that people are working hard to understand it and take it apart.

When I heard the Israeli Police K9 unit had begun to use dogs for patrol purposes, I was pleasantly surprised. I believe patrol dogs can do a lot to calm down explosive situations, control crowds and prevent crime just by their presence. However, for generations Israeli authorities have refrained from using dogs for overt security purposes.

ewish heritage has far-reaching implications on life in Israel (as well it should), some more positive than others. Among the darker aspects of the Jewish religion and culture is the refusal to use dogs as companions and pets, on the one hand, and as anything but house and flock guardians, on the other hand. Jews and dogs don’t go well together since the Bible does not favor dogs very much, relating to them various negative aspects. “For dogs encompass me, a company of evildoers encircles me,” (Psalm 22:16). “Then Abishai the son of Zeruiah said to the king, ‘Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king?’” (2 Samuel 16:9). “The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough.” (Isaiah 56:11) For generations, Jews did not keep dogs as pets and only in the past 200 years or so since the industrial revolution did some Jews who were not religious begin to keep dogs, breed and train them. To this day, many groups in Israel do not keep dogs and are afraid of them (particularly of black dogs). It is not uncommon for dog owners walking their dog to see people veer to the other side of the street or even walk on the road when they approach. Some even mutter to the Lord a sentence from Exodus: “But not a dog shall growl against any of Continued on page 116

show dog,” had nine Best In Show wins, and was retiring at that show to continue the line of greats that came from J. Morris’ kennels in England. Percy Roberts, who had judged Biddy in breed, called her, “Beautiful in type, well balanced and very sound.” John Marvin, the group judge, remarked that she was “an over-all good terrier, not extreme on any point, but well balanced and very well shown.” For most handlers in the sport winning BIS at Westminster would certainly be the proudest moment. Yet for Jimmy Butler there was a greater pride. Born in Rotherham, County of

82 Dog News

Yorkshire, England, in 1918, Jimmy Butler began his long career with dogs as his father’s assistant. It was like beginning close to the top because his father was the leading exhibitor and handler of terriers. At age twelve, Jimmy handled a terrier to win the coveted trophy for “Top Puppy of the Year.” At fourteen, he was requested to be the stand-in handler for the famous Joe Hitchens and, with an Irish Terrier, won the first CC (challenge certificate). He went to work full time at his father’s kennel and was put in charge of the second string of dogs. The most exciting wins for Jimmy Butler in England were when he was fortunate enough to beat his father for the championship. In 1939 he and his father headed the list of the most successful handlers in Great Britain. He served in the British Army rising to the rank of lieutenant. After the war, Jimmy Butler traveled to France, Holland and Belgium for shows as well as to those in Great Britain. He was also an inn keeper and owned two English pubs. In 1954, at the invitation of Mrs. Joseph Urmston Jimmy traveled to the United States to handle at the Garden. The following August he returned with his wife and two children. Until 1961 when he moved his family and business to Malibu, Califor-

nia, he made his home and operated his kennel at Holicong, Pennsylvania. He was modest, soft spoken, and thoughtful. He was a true “dog man” in his heart, his mind and in the ring. Devoted to his family, Jimmy Butler was also serious about the education of his children. He cared about the young people in the dog sport and encouraged their participation but never at the expense of their schooling. He was proud to be asked to judge Best Junior at Westminster in 1964 and in a personal interview conducted for that occasion, Jimmy Butler told of his proudest moment. “Both my wife, Jessica – who helps me as assistant handler – and I together with our children, Michael, who is a senior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, and Susan, who is a freshman at Whittier College in California, agree that our proudest moment was when we gained our United States citizenship at Philadelphia on the 23rd of March 1960.” Sources for this column: The Dog Show by William Stifel (2001), Popular Dogs Feb. 1964.

The Fancy Speaks Continued FROM page 46

▼ Promotion:

Keeping everything about the show positive is important. Promote the event with local businesses. These people are coming for several days and need to dine, sleep and have fun right in your town. Contact the local Visitors’ Bureau and tell them what you are bringing to the area. You will find they are VERY interested and will help you promote the show and possibly find sponsors and or supporters. Each year we receive a nice donation from them. This is a very important item and can truly help your show in many ways. The booklet that the AKC provides on the economic benefit of a show is a good tool to show to these groups. Hundreds of exhibitors and visitors will be attending these events and that means dollars to business people.

▼ Catalogs:

Watch closely the cost for advertising in your catalog and keep the price reasonable. Many will be repeat customers if it is worth it. The big question is always, “how many do we get”? Personally, we would rather sell out than have 100 left over. No one wants a catalog after the show. People do not buy them as they used to because of the cost. Keep that cost low but still make a little on it. The Wal-Mart theory of making money on multiple sales at a lower price rather than some money on one large sale applies here. We tried a promotion of placing money randomly in the catalogs as an incentive to purchase them. Last minute reduction in sell price for the last twenty-five is another way to help. There are many ways to get rid of all of them. You have to be creative.

▼ Junior handlers:

The future of your favorite sport lies right here. Treat them right, get nice prizes and a judge that truly enjoys juniors, not just a filler. Keep the cost for them low or even at no cost for a second entry. We donate a healthy portion of the reduced Junior’s entry fee to a scholarship fund. You will find Juniors are willing to chip in and help if need be. Have a pizza party just for them; get professional handlers to give a short demo or talk. They want to be a part of the show and will come back if they have a good time.

▼ Prizes:

Unless it is a lot of cash, most exhibitors do not attend a show based on the prizes given away but, it is a reflection upon the club as to what is given away. If you have a theme for your show, it may be incorporated into the prizes. We do chocolate and our prizes are large solid chocolate dog figures. Smaller less expensive prizes for 86 Dog News

the breed classes are candy bars with the club logo on them. At a cost of $5 each, it is affordable for someone to sponsor a prize and also makes the club a little money on each one purchased. Keep it reasonable but make a little on each. Donations can help here too; make sure you have things lined up in time for inclusion in the premium list. Returning prize sponsors and trying to have at least a little something for everyone is important.

▼ Sponsors:

Finding someone to donate prizes and or money to the show in exchange for advertising in catalogs, press releases, and armbands, really isn’t that hard. You just have to be creative and have some marketing skills. Don’t think just dogs, but hotels, restaurants, and other public places can be potential sponsors. If it gets their name out and people to buy their product or service, they just may be interested. Diligence in this search is very important and can prove very profitable in many ways. Get them for multiple years if possible or at least an option to re-up in the future. You will be surprised how many may be interested. For the cost of one good ad in the local paper or TV spot, you will get noticed and they get the benefit of being associated with dogs. Typically dogs have a positive connotation associated with them, therefore making a sponsor’s support of them a good thing for both of you.

▼ Theme:

Coming up with a theme for your show will help people to remember it. They will associate your show with that theme and it will develop into long-term recognition if it is done successfully. Give it some thought and apply some marketing techniques to it. Avoid things that may sound negative like, “The Tornado Alley Cluster” or “Lake Affect Snow Show”. Don’t give people something to feel negative about. Make sure it is something that you can easily continue year after year and build it up. Base your prizes and decorations on this theme. Advertise it as such, too. The show should have a carnival atmosphere to it, not funeral, as we have seen at some. The world needs more enjoyment, keep it fun. As we travel around, it is fun to hear people say, “oh I love that show with chocolate dogs”, BINGO, they remember the show.

▼ Special events:

Speak to other breed clubs about possibly having special events like sweeps, specialties or supported entries at your show. They will supply nice prizes, help with judges, and bring you entries. You must provide them with some special perks in return. Private grooming, judges education room or nicer ribbons for example. It is a win-win for both. Continued on page 90

▼ Grooming spaces:

Get help from the professional handlers to lay out your grooming area if you need it. Make sure if you assign spots, you have someone who knows the dynamics of the preregistered handlers to avoid conflicts. These conflicts can be any or all of the following: 1. Groups that use a lot of power, like clustering all poodle exhibitors on one power cord; 2. Personality conflicts among competitive professional handlers. 3. Family conflicts such as divorce or separation. 4. Amount of space required (large breeds verses smaller). 5. Proximity to the ring with particular breeds. 6. Shade and/or power. It is important to have this designed appropriately and monitored regularly by someone who understands the dynamics of this portion of the show.

▼ Your team:

The old saying that “good help is hard to find” may apply here, too. It seems that one of the biggest problems clubs have when putting on an event is obtaining enough help. Many are quick to jump on the bandwagon but few want to help pull it along. Find out what other members do for a living and utilize their expertise and connections. Our club President is a Chocolatier and he provided us with gorgeous solid chocolate renditions of the various groups. Another member works for a supply business and was able to get us plastic for the floors at a reduced price, yet another had ties to the media and helped promote the show. Don’t be afraid to ask. A special Show Committee meeting is essential to determine what benefits someone may be able to provide your show. It makes them feel important and contributes to the overall success. You can’t do it all on your own. Someone needs to be the leader and make final decisions, but a group effort will provide the best results.

▼ AKC Representatives:

Establish a good working relationship with your AKC representative. They will provide you will good information, suggestions and direction to achieve a better overall show. Contrary to popular belief, they are not there to give you a hard time; they know what works best. They deal with shows on a weekly basis and have seen a wide variety of events; use their knowledge to your advantage. 90 Dog News

▼ Judges:

This is one of your biggest expenses and requires some skill to get a panel put together that is diverse, consistent, and cost effective. We like to mix our panel with some ‘heavy hitters’ or judges who can do multiple groups and are well respected. We bring in some judges from outside the area, (mid west to west coast) so that most exhibitors may not have shown to them before. After all, you do not want the same old judges time after time. Also, include a few somewhat local judges that will help keep expenses for travel down and lastly the ever-important provisional judge. They are so grateful for an assignment and will typically do it very inexpensively for the opportunity to gain full status. Mix it up and see who draws and who is reasonably priced. Many clubs have a set price for judging and do not wavier from that. Some judges will reduce their price if you ask. Don’t be afraid to tell a judge, “no, that is more than we can afford.” You have to look at previous entries as well. Do not hire a high-profile Terrier judge if you only get 60 total. It is better to hire a judge that does Terriers and some other group and combine them. Putting together a good solid panel is not easy and will take up a lot of your time. Lastly, do not let a club member push you for one judge just because he or she put them up two months ago. Others may not like this judge so you have to look at their past record closely and ask others about them too. Besides, that club member should be helping with the show, NOT exhibiting themselves. They have the rest of the year to do that. Now it is time to give back to the sport and put on a good event for others as they do for you.

▼ Expenses:

Someone has to be in control of expenses. As Showchair you need to be aware of what things are costing. Keep very close track, as those numbers will help you for next year’s show. A good treasurer is very important and together you can team up to be aware of just where the money is going. Anything associated with the show should be run past the Show Chairman prior to approval. A good leader takes responsibility and oversees the entire operation. Direct, do not dictate or dominate.

▼ Food:

It is important to have breakfast of some sort available to the exhibitors at the show. Someone needs to provide this, either a volunteer organization like the local Volunteer Fire Department or the venue itself. A good breakfast starts the day off right. Good food at a fair price is a priority. Show people aren’t looking for gourmet food at this time, they want it quick and inexpensive but not Continued on page 94

Zhejiang Canine China • August 14th & 15th, 2013

T

he sport of dog showing in China is very unique from the rest of the world. Up until very recently, there were four main organizations putting on shows. It was the China Kennel Club, N.G.K.C., China Union and China National. In addition to these four organizations, they have individuals that also host shows. As 92 Dog News

large as the sport is within the US, we basically only have two organizations holding shows, that being AKC and the United Kennel Club. It always amazed me that the China National, the government group, was involved hosting shows since it was a lot of work with little financial gain. Recently I have been told China National

has pretty much given up holding shows. Within the last year Andy, who organized the China Kennel Club shows, has gone to work with the FCI group, China Kennel Union. While Andy was working for China Kennel Club they put on probably the most amount of shows yearly. Now that Andy is no longer with China Kennel


Some time earlier in the summer my good friend, Andy Gong, gave me a list of shows and asked which dates I might have available. It comprised about ten different weekends. Not that I judge every weekend, but this date of August 14 and 15 was the only weekend I had available. Andy informed me that it was in the beautiful area called One Thousand Lakes, about a two hour drive from Hangzhou. I have judged for Andy Gong on several occasions when he was organizing the shows for the China Kennel Club and each time it was always a most enjoyable pleasure to judge these shows no matter which part of China the show was held in. About a year and a half ago I had judged in nearby Honshu. That was a very last minute assignment to replace a judge. Late Thursday morning Andy called to see if I could get on a plane the following morning to Shanghai and a driver would drive me to Honshu. Andy knew my visa was current and was so relieved to learn there was one single seat available on the Friday flight to Shanghai. Since China does not have any judges it is extremely difficult to replace a judge at the last minute.

Club, they have basically given up hosting shows and only do a few match shows. The N.G.K.C. organization aligned themselves with AKC several years ago and formed an alliance called Global Services. This is for the purpose of registration through AKC. It has been rumored that this has been a large

financial income to AKC. Like so much of the communications with AKC, these figures have never been made public. About a year ago, AKC gave full recognition to N.G. K.C. as the official governing body of China. Now within the year FCI has named China Kennel Union as being the fully recognized organization of China. This has become an

interesting situation since AKC is recognizing an organization in an FCI country that is not accepted by FCI. This is a unique situation in that in no other country does AKC recognize a non FCI governing body. It is probably for the best interests of the sport in China that only two organizations are putting on most of the shows. Since Continued on page 129

junky. Many vendors offer this service, make sure your venue allows others to sell food. Make sure Health Code regulations are observed as well. Offering free donuts in the morning or something at Best In Show is a crowd pleaser, too. Don’t forget that food during setup day may be well received too.

▼ Clean up:

The dreaded clean up time! Suddenly everyone is gone and you have the entire place to clean up. Always leave your venue in better shape that you found it and you can be guaranteed it will be available to you the next year. Leave it a mess and you not only put your club in danger of losing your site but also place a black mark on the sport for others. Make sure you have this base covered. Have a team ready to fly into action. Also have clean up crews available during the show and please keep the ex-pens extra clean. We can’t stress that enough. You can get young volunteers to help and don’t be afraid to pay them a fee as well. Good people are hard to find and paying them a small fee will insure their return next year. Have the tools they need ready to go and inspect their work and make sure it is done quickly and politely. Nothing deters visitors from every returning more than stepping in dog waste. You want them to come back year after year. A clean show is VERY important.

▼ Additional

attractions at the show:

Adding extras can improve your show. A veterinarian can give eye exams or microchip clinics, you can have guest speakers on dog subjects. Or even better, offer a Meet the Breeds program. Judges education on particular breeds that are supporting your show is another good way to bring more people to the event. Today you MUST offer more than just watching the dogs in the ring. Be creative. Also, see if you can get clubs to support your show with their breed of dog or better yet, hold a specialty. Offer a discount or special offering to entice them. Establish a longterm relationship and they will come back year after year. A good site that works with them will easily convince breed clubs to return.

94 Dog News

▼ Spectators:

If your club relies upon the proceeds from the gate, then particular attention must be given to providing a good experience for those attendees. Make sure everyone says, “Thank you for coming to our show,” and have a suggestion box available for comments. Have a small token of appreciation for them. A pen, sticker, clip, or some other inexpensive item reminds them of the event and brings them back. It shows that you aren’t just interested in their money, but that you want them to enjoy the day and the dogs. The AKC has great pamphlets and info available for free to pass out to people. You must contact them about two months ahead of time to schedule the delivery of these great items. People like free stuff.

▼ Other

fundraisers/ raffles?

Many clubs raffle off something to gain additional funds. Be careful that what you offer isn’t something that only exhibitors would want. You want the general public to purchase them, too. This can be overdone, so be creative. Gas cards have proven popular and sometimes local companies may even donate a few items that showcase something of local value or interest. Reach out to them and see what’s available. Showcasing things of local interest so that visitors may return to the area is also good business with local establishments. They will be more inclined to donate and/or support your event. We used tickets to the local water park and also the comedy club. Both were donated free of charge.

T

oday’s dog shows are big dollar events and take some skill to pull off successfully. These are just a few of the many ways you can improve your event. Share your knowledge; look at other shows and see what works for them. A good Show Chair is always looking for ways to make their show stand out from the others. Good luck to you and “let’s take’em around the ring,”

All Are You Ready In The For That New Kennel? Family Continued FROM page 50

KENNEL BEDDING The bedding should be cheap and low maintenance, as the bedding will constantly need changing. If a cloth-like material is used, continued disinfectant and parasite spray will be needed. A good environmental type material, which keeps down parasite activity, is cedar shavings. • Tip! Some dogs are sensitive to certain allegories. Being proactive, rather than reactive, is a good vet cost savings measurement. WHELPING ROOM The whelping room should be constructed so that it is an isolated private arrangement, within the kennel proper, with no other dogs, other than the Moms, having access to the new puppies. The bedding should be kept clean and the veneration should be in accordance with the

season. Puppies, not like well developed dogs, also need warmth, such as a heating pad or strong light bulb. • Tip! A Closed Circuit TV in the whelping room, with an Internet connection to the breeder’s home monitoring system, is very helpful. PROPER USE OF FEED AND WATER The very best feeding and watering appliances are the automatic low maintenance type. Basically, the only maintenance required is a water check, in the cold weather, and a regular check of the feed container, for evidence of varmints. If manual watering containers are utilized, precautions should be used to keep the water fresh and free of algae. And packaged food should be kept fresh in hard surface sealed containers.

ADDITIONAL POINTS TO REMEMBER :

Care of Dogs

• Dogs should have access on a daily basis for play and exercise. • Dogs must have access to fresh water as appropriate. • Dogs must have access to fresh food provided at appropriate intervals to maintain a healthy weight. • Appropriate health care, including routine and preventative care, must be provided for all dogs. • Dogs should be provided with daily positive human contact and socialization. • Each dog should have its overall health and behavior assessed daily. Any deviation health condition must be addressed expeditiously and appropriately. • Dogs should be free from internal and external parasites. • Dogs should be afforded regular grooming to ensure health and comfort. • When euthanasia is necessary, it must always be performed humanely. 98 Dog News

Kennels and Housing

• The primary enclosure must be large enough so that dogs can sit, stand, lie down, or turn around comfortably, with no overcrowding. • The primary enclosure shall be constructed and maintained so that dogs are securely confined and does not cause injury to the dogs. • Protection from adverse or extreme weather conditions must be provided. • While flooring that provides solid footing is preferred, if wire is used as flooring of a primary enclosure, it should be comprised of a material featuring a protective coating, be of an appropriate size to prevent injury (especially to feet), and must be kept in good repair. If wire is used, a solid platform of sufficient size should be provided to allow the dogs to attain solid footing and to offer a space for resting. • Facilities must be lighted to provide a regular cycle for the dogs. • Bedding material made available to dogs should be clean and not pose a risk to the dogs.

• Tip! Always keep fresh food and water, as this is the one factor that activist dog groups will focus on. REGULATIONS AND POLICIES A copy of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) rules, and where applicable, should be available in the kennel office for review. A copy of AKC’s newly revised “Care and Condition of Dogs” policy should also be available for review. If your kennel business is considered to be a dealer operation, you sell to pet shops, or you sell sight unseen by way of the Internet, etc., your kennel may be regulated by the Animal and Plant Inspection Service (APHIS) division of the USDA. One main function of the APHIS agency, is to defend the animals from pests and diseases. In the event that a pest or disease is detected, APHIS will implement emergency precautions to quickly eradicate the problem. Such measures could cause a temporary hardship on a kennel operation. Common sense measures can play a substantial part in keeping pests and disease to a minimum. Measures such as food protection, a regular scheduled professional pest control program, preventive vet examinations, isolation and separation of sick animals, and overall kennel cleanliness routine will help. One additional precaution would be to separate and isolate newly acquired animals, especial those imported from other countries, until checked by a licensed vet. Remember, always document and retain all preventive measures, as they pertain to the APHIS, in case of a USDA inspection. Where applicable, a systematic training program for all kennel personnel should be included in this documentation. • Tip! It is much better to take a “proactive” approach, rather than a “reactive” approach to this, as well as all other functions of your kennel operation. DOCUMENTATION Proper record keeping is a must for any kennel. Records such as Individual Dog Ownership Records, Breeding Records, Litter Produced Records, and Dog Identification Practices, should be kept current and upto-date, for a period of five years. Agencies such as the USDA, the APHIS and the AKC require these records be kept available for inspection. • Tip! Often times, a customer referral will solicit a breeder’s help, in seeking another puppy offspring, as proper records can definitely be a good marketing tool.

Laboratory. They both were finally diagnosed. They were affected with a known lysosomal storage disease, specifically, Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 1 (MPS 1). Lysosomes break down unwanted matter in the cells. Both Rigel and Trudy were missing one of these important enzymes. MPS 1 is an autosomal recessive disease. This diagnosis meant that Rigel and Trudy’s symptoms would continue to worsen and their deaths were only a matter of time. When Rigel was 17 months old, his owner decided that he could take no more and let him go peacefully. Because MPS 1 is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder, both Rigel and Trudy’s parents are carriers, and at least one of each of their grandparents is a carrier. All relatives have a significant chance to be carriers. Yet no one in the breed had ever heard of this problem before. There are, however, stories of Afghan Hounds that die at 2-3 years of age with mysterious symptoms. (This occurs in other breeds as well.) If it were not for one astute veterinarian at Ohio State University and the bravery of Rigel and Trudy’s owners (and a few others who helped them) in telling their tale, no one would have ever heard of this disorder that has potentially been silently killing dogs of this and possibly other breeds. Still, these stories are not things that people want to hear or that people like to talk about, but recognition and sharing of information are necessary for the presence of such disorders to be recognized and addressed. Such disorders occur in many species and are well characterized in humans. Identification and diagnosis of such

disorders in dogs and cats is offered through biochemical analysis at University of Pennsylvania Metabolic Testing Laboratory. Genetic testing is offered at canine genetic testing companies like Paw Print Genetics that offers two approaches to testing. One, symptomatic dogs from breeds with no known mutation or mixed breed dogs can be tested for all the gene mutations that result in specific symptoms that are present in the dog, (for example the gene known to result in seizures, abnormal bleeding, or, in this case, the mutations that result in mucopolysaccharidoses). The second approach is the use of panels of DNA mutations based on gene mutations that researchers have identified in each breed. No one in the breed may have heard of a particular problem before, but dogs in the breed have specifically been identified with the disorders included in each breed panel. Like MPS1 in the Afghan Hound,

these disorders can run in a family or line for many generations before affected puppies are born, and the disorder recognized and diagnosed. This could be similar to neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis that is primarily in Australian lines but affected dogs are listed in the US Border Collie health database. Or like sensory ataxic neuropathy (SAN) found in Golden Retrievers, these dogs are also often euthanized by the age of three. Another similarity could be X-linked myotubular myopathy in the Labrador Retriever. Since this condition is X-linked, any Labrador Retriever cross could have a risk to develop this severe and rapidly progressive disease. There are many other disorders and diseases for which Paw Print Genetics is providing DNA testing. These tests are cost-effective, and ordering the entire panel specific to a given breed is an recommended approach to genetic testing in order to diminish the possibility for tragic tales like Rigel’s.

“If it were not for one astute veterinarian at Ohio StateUniversityandthebraveryofRigelandTrudy’s owners (and a few others who helped them) in telling their tale, no one would have ever heard of this disorder that has potentially been silently killing dogs of this and possibly other breeds.”

Are The Laws Allowing Service Animals To Access Public Places Being Abused More Often? Continued FROM page 58

“The Americans with Disabilities Act is a civil rights law to protect the rights of people with disabilities, including those who use service animals. The ADA does not protect individuals without disabilities, such as anyone who may falsely claim that a pet is a service animal. Because this issue does not address the civil rights of people with disabilities, we do not contemplate issuing regulations to penalize false claims that a pet is a service animal. However, we note that state civil or criminal law may already penalize such claims in some circumstances.”

--Dena W. Iverson, Spokesperson, U.S. Department of Justice it anywhere they wanted to regardless whether it was housebroken or even received basic training. For these reasons, ADA was in need of the review Congress mandated every ten years,” Froling says and continues. “IAADP worked with Assistance Dogs International, an alliance of non-profit training programs; the Council of U.S. Dog Guide Schools; and Guide Dog Users, Inc., another consumer advocacy group. Together, we founded a coalition of assistance dog organizations that met with DOJ to address ADA revision. “Our coalition requested the definition of a service animal be clarified such that it more specifically state which species it may be. We also urged DOJ to continue requiring disability-related task training as ADA’s defining characteristic of a service animal.”

Further Clarification

Some people with emotional support animals wanted to see them included as service animals as well. However, ADA stipulates that service animals do not include those dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support. “Although the ADA definition was expanded to include persons who have a service dog that assists them with a mental disability like PTSD, it does not include a dog whose sole purpose is emotional support or companionship. Therefore, a dog only would be considered a service animal for example, when its owner’s disability is PTSD and the dog was trained to perform specific tasks that aid someone who has PTSD. A dog labeled an 104 Dog News

emotional support dog would be considered a pet and not a service dog when it only provides comfort and companionship. While comfort and companionship from a pet is beneficial, providing it isn’t the same thing as performing trained tasks related to a disability.” Another group of owners felt that if their dog’s appearance scared away intruders, then its crime deterrent effect should qualify it as a service animal under ADA. “The way a dog looks is not considered performing a task,” Froling says. “But even if a dog was protection work trained, it would not be considered a service animal because the task it performs is not disabilityrelated.” Likewise, some mistakenly believed that certified therapy dogs should be granted the same access rights as a service animal. A therapy dog is a dog trained to perform pet-assisted therapy and activities. For example, it provides affection and comfort to people in hospitals, nursing homes and hospices. Typically, it’s a pet owned by the person handling it. Because the handler is not disabled and the dog lacks the ADA definition’s required training for a service animal, a therapy dog is not granted the same right to access.

Air Carriers Access Act

ACAA is a law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in air travel and requires air carriers to accommodate the needs of passengers with disabilities. Under the regulations for it as written by DOT, a service animal includes service dogs and emotional support dogs. Here, emotional support dogs are defined as those dogs that are not specifically

trained to perform disability-related tasks but do provide therapeutic benefits like companionship. Because it’s difficult to distinguish between someone who needs the companionship of an emotional support dog from someone who simply wants to bring his pet along, ACAA requires certain requirements be met. “Those who want to fly with an emotional support dog must have a letter written by a licensed mental health provider. The letter must include his license number on letterhead stationary and be dated less than one year ago. It must state that the person has a disability and needs to fly with his emotional support dog in the cabin of the airplane,” Froling says. Since first being signed into law in 1986, ACAA regulations have been tightened up and now further state that an emotional support dog must have had basic training so it is as well behaved in public as a service dog. However, an emotional support dog still doesn’t have to be trained to perform disabilityrelated tasks but simply provide aid by its innate presence. “The 1996 ACAA Guidance Document states that any dog that runs around loose, isn’t housetrained, or growls and bites isn’t behaving like a service animal in public. Therefore, an airline doesn’t have to allow it access even though it may perform an assistive function,” Froling says.

Fair Housing Act

FHAct was written to protect the disabled buyer or renter of a dwelling from being discriminated against by the seller or landlord. When HUD wrote its regulations for access to housing, the agency used the term assistance animal instead and defines it as an animal that isn’t trained to perform disability-related tasks and also could be a species other than a dog. “During the 20 years since the first regulations were drafted, HUD developed a better definition of what is and isn’t considered an assistance animal under its guidelines. The latest Guidance Document dated April 2013 still states an assistance animal helps people in ways that don’t necessarily require that it be trained. However, a letter from a medical provider is required now. The letter must state the person has a disability and would benefit from having an assistance animal. It also must state the animal performs some sort of service related to a disability. For example, the letter could state that the patient’s cat sits in his lap for petting, an activity that helps calm the person during an anxiety attack. Because the animal in this example performs a service, it would qualify as an emotional support animal even though it is not a service animal under ADA and may not be a service animal under ACAA,” Froling says.

Abuses

The complexity of these laws along with misinformation about them could give rise to inadvertent abuses of them. The fact that service Continued on page 106

Are The Laws Allowing Service Animals To Access Public Places Being Abused More Often?

Continued FROM page 104

dog owners are not required to present proof of their disability or their dog’s training as a service animal are other contributing factors. As is the fact that disabled persons may only be asked limited questions when seeking access for their animal: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform?) Although the latter makes it easier for abuses to occur, Froling says the limited questioning mandated by ADA is a wonderful thing. “It used to be that whenever disabled persons went somewhere with their service dog, they were treated with suspicion,” she says. “They were asked to provide proof of disability and service dog training. DOJ, IAADP and other stakeholders worked very hard during the past 20 years to make business owners understand that the goal of ADA is to help integrate disabled persons into mainstream society, which means they should be allowed to go into a store or a restaurant with their service dog without being questioned as if they are scam artists.”

The Movement To Prevent Abuses

Because some of the service dog training schools are concerned about the abuse of these laws, they would like to see a government agency established that would evaluate and certify service animals and provide appropriate identification. Froling thinks this would prove to be highly problematic for the disabled. “If one entity were designated to evaluate and certify service dogs, it would pose challenges to members of the disabled community. Consider my circumstances in that event. I’m a wheelchair user who has trained my own service dogs for almost 20 years. In order for me to get a dog certified by the government or a designated entity if such a law were passed, I would need to take their Certification Test. That would mean I would have to hire someone to transport me and my dog to the test location which might be a couple hundred miles away from my home. I would have to pay them to wait for me and, then, transport us home. That would involve a lot of time and money. Also, because I have a limited amount of strength due to a neuromuscular disease, I’d probably have to go home if I wasn’t among the first ten teams tested. “This sort of certification program would be very stressful, as well, for the disabled children and adults who would worry about passing the test. The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association in the United Kingdom, the largest service dog school in the world, dropped its certification testing precisely because of the stress it caused its disabled clients,” Froling says.

Online Vendors

The service dog training schools concerned about abuses also would like to stop the online sale of service dog harnesses and vests. Because Internet companies make these items available to anyone without proof of

“While we deplore those persons who don’t respect these laws and deliberately abuse them, we’re equally concerned about the alarm expressed by some over the risk that people might abuse them...”

disability or service dog training, those concerned say they facilitate abuses. Again, Froling has a different view. “These companies provide an important service to the disabled persons, who train their own service dogs or work with a professional trainer to train their own service dog,” she says. “That’s the source where they buy their dog a vest or harness. Are there pet owners who could do the same thing? Of course, there are. Are there pet owners who are going to cheat? Possibly. However, should a small number of persons, who are going to behave dishonorably, cause tens of thousands of legitimate teams to go back to the era when we had to use homemade vests and harnesses?”

Increased Media Coverage

Despite the concern expressed by some of the service dog schools, Froling doesn’t believe abuses of these laws occur any more frequently now than they have in the past 10 to 15 years with the possible exception of a few states like California and Florida and perhaps New York City. She believes the media is providing more coverage of abuses now because the service dog training schools concerned about them have generated interest in the topic in their crusade to tighten the laws. “These organizations have asked their disabled clients to contact their local newspapers and request a story be written about abuses of service dog access laws. That’s why there’s more media coverage. The irony is that all this effort to ‘make something happen to stop abuses’ could backfire. “While we deplore those persons who don’t respect these laws and deliberately abuse them, we’re equally concerned about the alarm expressed by some over the risk that people might abuse them. We worry that all this sudden crusading against abuses will generate some draconian measures on the part of Congress that ultimately would end up punishing the entire disabled community by limiting their civil rights and set back all of the progress that’s been made in the last 20 years,” Froling says.

Another Solution

If steps must be taken to stop abuses, she suggests those concerned lobby to make it a crime to impersonate an assistance dog team in every state and impose huge fines to deter such cheating. “Don’t squander millions in taxpayer dollars to create a government agency to police the disabled community as the solution to the lack of ethics on the part of a tiny fringe element. Or worse still, make the poorest segment of society pay all the costs involved in licensing and testing; in essence, depriving those who can’t afford such fees or find affordable transportation to the test site of their much needed access rights,” Froling says.

or five days in mid September, the Purina Farms Event Center was swarming with Swissies. The lovely, indoor-outdoor venue in Grey Summit, MO, was host to the 2013 Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America (GSMDCA) National Specialty Show. A total of 134 dogs from around the U. S. competed in Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Herding, Weight Pulling, Drafting, and Pack Hiking, for a total of 250 entries. On Friday, September 13, an Independent Specialty Show capped the week’s GSMDCA festivities, with 88 dogs entered for a total of 130 entries. As an added bonus, two all-breed shows with supported entries provided even more pointearning opportunities for Swissies (and their humans) that stayed through the weekend. The National got off to a sweaty start on September 9, as a Draft trial held outside on the grassy grounds kicked off the competition in unseasonably warm weather. Despite the heat, four dogs received new titles of Draft Dog and Novice Draft Dog. Sweepstakes followed with Best Puppy in Sweeps being awarded to a dog from the 15-18 month class, CH Matterhorn’s Burning Down the House, and Best of Opposite Puppy going to a 15-18 month bitch, Seavaridge’s Wind Beneath my Wings. Breeder/judge Mrs. Bonnie Huett chose these nicely balanced dogs from a group of over 40 puppies.

The Judges Task Force Committee, Television v. Streaming Live... Continued FROM page 66

I

am truly appreciative when people answer my weekly Question of the Week and even more so when they are Delegates and/ or Board Members since for some unfathomable reason these are the people most reluctant to answer these questions. So I hesitate to take issue with answers from these categories of people but in the case of Harvey Wooding’s answer to my question about AKC not televising the National Championship event this year I have to seriously counter his objections and to point out a mistaken fact he stated. First of all where he was correct was in stating that the winners and breeds were condensed but whether this was bad for the general public is debatable and a matter of opinion. To call the program “badly out of date” totally misses the point of to

More whom the program was and should be directed, which of course is the general public. Sure it would be nice to have it broadcast live which was the original reason given to hold the show in conflict with other AKC shows but any form of positive public TV helps the purebred community of breeders and should be looked upon favorably. Years ago Chet Collier (who was a Board Member coincidentally from Westminster, the same club Mr. Wooding represents), said to me using a paraphrased version of his actual statement, “These programs are not intended to enlighten and appeal to the Fancy at large but are meant to inform and help educate the general public about the advantages of owning a purebred dog and to educate them about AKC generally.” Certainly this is something this program did succeed in

doing. Be it live or canned, in my opinion, anyways. Then he goes on to say AKC and Eukanuba have chosen a collective path about the TV when in fact at the Delegate meeting Dennis Sprung’s exact words to a Delegate who asked whether or not Eukanuba pulled the plug on the TV replied that Eukanuba decided it was in the best interest of the show...to focus on the streaming web…as opposed to television!! Hardly sounds like a joint decision to me.

n last week’s Editorial I questioned the wisdom of both Alan Kalter and Pat Cruz in supporting two different ideas and upon further reflection I question their thinking again. Pat wants to have, for a low entry show, 2 all-breeds in one day akin to what they do in Canada. This is to my thinking senseless and a potential for another backto-back catastrophe. Anyone familiar with AKC’s history in these kinds of limited type proposals is totally aware how they get expanded far and beyond the intent of the original proposition. Just as

Queensboro KC of NYC got a one or two year extension to go to hold its show in Springfield, Massachusetts and now is in at least its sixth year there or as Bill Bergum originally requested back-tobacks in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan only to have them expanded round the country so Ms. Cruz’s proposal will become the norm for every Tom, Dick and Harry show. Forget that suggestion immediately no matter how much certain judges will savor the possibility of two fees on the same day. As for Alan’s idea to extend to American judges the group exception foreign judges may or may not receive on an 8020 basis his thinking in this matter is half cocked. What he should be thinking about doing is to make it tougher for the foreign judges to judge here in the States and to look for more experienced judges of their breeds from the American judges than they presently have. Judging should be considered an art and a responsibility and not an opportunity to increase one’s retirement check or social security benefit!

to train. Their drive and courage make them capable of many different sports,” said Sylvia Krpan, who owns Josie (MACH5 Dauntless Lunar Eclipse UDX2 OM1 VCD3 TDX RE XF Nov Dock Diving Novj CPE) and Sami (Ch B’Dazzled by Delight BN RN AXJ OA.) “They really love to learn and be with people and with other dogs. That’s why it’s sad when people believe what they see on television or in the newspapers and won’t give an AmStaff a chance. So many people have come to me and said, ‘Your dogs are so nice and friendly’ as they are wagging their tails begging to be petted. We have actually had more problems with other dogs where their handlers don’t pay attention to their dogs and their dogs have reacted negatively to my dogs. Fortunately, my AmStaffs have never responded to any of the bad behavior or challenges from these other dogs. They just look at them, LIKE REALLY! I try to show everyone that AmStaffs are not evil, mean dogs, that they are very loving and kind. Actually, the AmStaffs with a lot of titles are the best kind of advertisement for the breed. It shows they can be trained with other dogs and people and perform to high standards.” One of the challenges, aside from public perception, of working with an AmStaff in performance activities is learning how to train and motivate an intelligent terrier that may not always feel the need to cooperate, according to Lottinville. “I found that longer and more relaxed training stays with the dog for the lifetime of the dog rather than intense training for a short period and then pursuing the title. It is easier to overwork and sour an AmStaff than a lot of other breeds. They don’t like to repeat things.

Sometimes if I plan on entering an event we won’t train for the entire week before that event. In this way, the dogs get bored and really look forward to doing something with me. If I sense a dog is getting fed up with an activity, I stop it for a long time and then ease back into it or I really try hard to make it more fun for the dog. It’s also important, while you are training for any activity, to act like you are having fun. If you act like you are having fun, more than likely the dog will also have fun.” Wedel added that it is important to avoid the trap of running a dog in a licensed event too early in their training. “There are differences in breeds. You can overcome them as a trainer but you have to be aware and approach the training differently. For example, I recently worked with a field-bred Labrador. The difference in how this dog responds to training as opposed to my AmStaffs is notable. She was much more enthusiastic about training sessions and was willing to work longer and seemed to get more enjoyment out of this activity than my dogs. So, I keep things short and fun with my AmStaffs and I often train two or three dogs in the same sessions so they are excited about coming out and working. My little MACH AmStaff was a great obedience dog in novice, even getting a high-in-trial. But, as we got more involved in open and utility classes, she seemed to lose interest. While she finished her titles easily, I did have to keep the training short and fun and also used motivational games in training and at the site of the event. I have experienced this loss of enthusiasm in other AmStaffs when we got to the higher obedience classes on previous occasions. I think some of it is related to my own stress in the obedience ring so I’m still working on mental exercises and visualization techniques to improve my own attitude.” Lottinville noted that because of the negative publicity the breed has received, it is important for AmStaff owners to get their well-trained dogs out where people get an opportunity to see that the breed is not vicious. “We go to many different activities besides performance events. I’ve done demonstrations for multiple boy scout troops MS camps, the county pound, community dog fairs and at schools. A dog whose owner has an interest in bettering the reputation of the breed can touch the lives of many, many more people than a dog whose owner only exhibits that dog in the show ring. We win the public relations fights and as a consequence, the BSL battles, by having well-behaved, people-friendly dogs that are under control.”

“It is easier to overwork and sour an AmStaff than a lot of other breeds. They don’t like to repeat things.”

Blizzie (MACH Dauntless Winter Stormwatch UD RE), another of Wedel’s dogs, is too “white” to get a conformation championship but has earned a master agility championship and is one of only three AmStaffs to have achieved both a MACH and a UD. She is also a favorite among agility competitors in her area.

the people of Israel” (Exodus 11;7), believing this would protect them from the evil beasts. The other aspect of Jewish heritage that puts dogs in an unfavorable light is the memory of the Holocaust, in which the Nazis used attack dogs to keep the people being herded to the death camps under control. I remember my aunt, a Holocaust survivor, who was terrified of dogs, even my little harmless poodle, throughout her entire life, due to the horrific experiences she had undergone. On the other hand, with the return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel, many of them living in small outposts surrounded by hostile enemies, the use of watch dogs became a necessity. Among the people who taught about dogs and promoted service dogs in the budding country were Prof. Rudolphina and Dr. Rudolf Menzel. Prof. Rudolphina was an animal behaviorist specializing in dogs, a colleague of the famous Konrad Lorenz. She and her husband, a physician, emigrated from Vienna to Israel in the 1930’s, where she bred boxers and eventually discovered the Canaan Dog. Prof. Menzel taught the local Jewish security forces how to train and handle dogs for security purposes and also trained seeing-eye dogs. The British police that operated in what was then called Palestine from the 1920’s to 1947 also used service dogs for patrol purposes. Jews serving in the police force were exposed to these dogs too. The Israeli military has a very strong K9 unit that developed over the past 30 years,

with dogs assisting in detecting unwanted visitors who cross the border without a passport as well as clearing paths from suspected bombs and scanning people and goods at border crossings. The police has used dogs mainly for sniffing out explosives and drugs. However, in the past few years, the use of dogs by Israeli security forces has increased in scope and in number. K9 units are deployed in every district (the police here is national) and, as mentioned above, the latest innovation by local terms are patrol dogs. A couple of months ago, I received a phone call from the Israeli Kennel Club asking whether I would like to give a presentation at our parliament, the Knesset, about Labrador Retrievers used by the police. Always game for a new experience, I agreed and was referred to Arcady Forman, a trainer and breeder who provides Labs for the police. Arcady, a true character in all senses of the word, was born in Belarus under the communist regime. His love of dogs got him into lots of trouble with his father, a traditional Jew, who was averse to dogs. However, Arcady managed to get his way and as a teenager already had a champion protection dog. This led him to a Soviet military K9 unit in which he served for quite a few years, with tours of duty in Afghanistan and Africa. He also managed the regional kennel club in the city of Gomel. About 13 years ago, Arcady arrived in Israel with his enormous know-how in dogs. He immediately found his place as a trainer,

but something was missing. Seven years ago, he was called to the flag, but this time symbolically, not literally. He was offered a position at the Manof Youth Village in the town of Acre, teaching high-school students how to care for dogs and train them. The enterprising man quickly turned the place into a thriving breeding kennel and training school, but didn’t stop there. He began to breed dogs – Malinois and Labs – for the Israeli military and police. We visited the school in June and saw students working with their dogs, giving a lovely enactment of a bank robbery, with a young “armed robber” and an equally young female K9 “policewoman” who sent her dog to catch the “criminal”. Arcady told me about the work these dogs do for security forces here and around the world, helping me to create a comprehensive presentation. It turns out Labs nowadays are top sniffer dogs the world over and are used to detect everything from explosives and drugs to smuggled cash. When the day arrived, Arcady picked me up and we drove to Jerusalem. Only then was I informed that I was destined to speak to K9 policemen from around the country who were guests of the Knesset security officer. The Knesset, too, uses dogs for various scanning jobs, including vehicles and the main hall in which the parliament members convene and vote. I met a wonderful group of people, men Continued on page 122

and women, who love dogs and have come to depend on their partnership. Among them was Captain Yossi Bliss, the unit’s chief training officer. After a bit of red tape, Captain Bliss received official permission to let me into his unit and take photos of his horses and dogs (since the unit is actually the animal unit, not just K9). The training base, built by the British, is designed for all types of police work. It also houses a museum that illustrates police work from Biblical times to the 21st century. The animal unit has a kennel and stable where the animals and their handlers undergo training. “K9 police studies are comprised of a 22-month long course in which each trainee is paired with a dog and trains it for a particular job,” says Bliss. “The operative dogs are able to find drugs, guns, explosives, dead bodies and even money. Others work in patrols, crowd control and defense.” Before being accepted to the K9 or mounted police, the candidates have to undergo basic police training and then work for two years as regular police officers. Arcady is on the board of the Israeli Belgian Shepherd Club as is Captain Bliss, creating an interesting bond between the security forces and the Kennel Club. At the police academy, we noticed that the kennels were maintained by people who do not look like regular police material. It turned out they were indeed special needs population that help out at the kennel as a regular job. They are not part of the police force, but auxiliary person-

nel. So the unit actually does some community service. “I enlisted for military service,” says one young man who has a very short stature. “I was able to do my service in the police. For the past year, I worked in computers but now I asked to be transferred to the K9 unit because I love animals. It seems to be a good choice for me but I am very new here so time will tell.” Bliss also showed us his custom made dog truck, with insulated and air-conditioned cells for the dogs as well as space for various accessories their handlers may require. The truck was made to his specifications and can be seen at crime scenes around the country. One of the trainers took out a 6-year-old Malinois, part of the training base kennel. Bliss took a small vial of pseudo-explosive substance and placed it on a car. Upon command, the bitch found the substance and sat down, signaling its location. It also gave a similar display in a different setting. The trainer then came back with one of the new dogs that had arrived from Arcady’s kennel that day. The chocolate Lab was attentive to its new handler, but since it has not really begun its training we could only appreciate its external appearance. The visit was cut short by an unexpected drill the unit had to take part in. Due to its sensitive nature, we were not allowed to take photos, but one can definitely appreciate the advancement Israeli police is undergoing with its animal unit and hope to see more dogs in service in years to come.

SWISSY GLOSSARY • Draft tests: Designed to mimic the types of obstacles a working Swissy may have had to negotiate while pulling a cart. Standing calm in harness and working steadily, dog and handler demonstrate their proficiency to work as a team, by navigating a set course. Teams earn various levels of draft titles. • Herding: Strong herding instincts stem from the Swissy’s historical purpose. Though bred to function as a draft dog, the Swissy also was used to manage livestock (primarily dairy cattle) in the mountains of its native Switzerland. Herding competition gives Swissies a chance to show off their herding chops, generally by herding lambs. • Weight Pull: Weight Pulling demonstrates the Swissy’s physical brawn, and its willingness to please its master. Working away from the handler (with no physical contact allowed), the dog must pull a weight-filled cart for a total of 15 feet. Swissies earn titles as proof of their willingness to work.

the exhibitors go to either just one of the organizational bodies of shows, the entries will now only be divided two ways, not four ways. In the past it used to be, for example, N.G.K.C. and China Kennel Club would be holding shows on the same weekend in the same city, thus limiting the amount of available entries. The advantage now for China Kennel Union is now they can offer International titles since they are fully allowed. South Korea is another Asian country where a non FCI Kennel Club exists. FCI has been very generous in allowing American judges to judge for the non FCI group. But many Americans out of respect to the FCI Korean Kennel Club do not accept assignments to the non FCI group. Even Japan, a major FCI country, has two types of shows. A club will on the same weekend host shows that are an FCI type show and one that is a Japanese KC type show recognized by FCI. This allows the exhibitors more opportunity for advanced championship titles. If an exhibitor aligns themselves with N.G.K.C., they are not allowed to show at the official FCI shows or the China Kennel Union shows. As large a country as China is, there are only so many exhibitors that show on a regular basis. One great advantage to China Kennel Union now is that they can hire judges from all the FCI countries. The China Kennel Club always had to depend on

American and Canadian judges for their shows. This was due to the fact judges from FCI countries could not accept assignments for non FCI organizations. Right now FCI is still allowing Americans and Canadians to judge for the N.G.K.C., but this could come to a halt in the future. I imagine that right now FCI and AKC are trying to cooperate in doing what they feel is in the best interests of the sport in China. This is a unique situation because it is the only country of the world where this agreement is. It is basically the procedure for judging and rules who may enter. China is one of the few countries for which we need a visa. The procedure is very simple and the easiest way is to have a company secure it. I and many others use Visas & Passports 2 Go, Inc. After the initial visa to China they are then issued for a full year and allowed multiple entries. Most of the large hubs offer non-stop flights to all the major cities of Asia. From Newark to Beijing is only about a 13-hour flight. As long as one can sleep well on planes it makes for catching up on some extra rest, viewing new movies, rewatching the classics and the peace of mind of not having responsibilities for half a day. I personally like to book my own flights since it just seems easier and one has more control over the itinerary and scheduling. Although the show was fairly close to the airport of Honshu, I thought I would be flying direct to Shanghai and then on to

Honshu by car or train. Andy explained we all would fly to Beijing and spend a night there and then the following morning fly to Hangzhou. The reason being there are no flights from Shanghai to Honshu. There are numerous flights each day from Beijing to Honshu. The show was actually held in an area called Lake of a Thousand Islands. This is at least a two-hour drive at high speed with no traffic. Travel by car does allow for the opportunity to see more of the countryside. So often we fly into a large city and never see the surrounding areas. George Marquis and I arrived in Beijing on Thursday afternoon just about an hour apart. Arriving first gave me a good hour to spend some time alone with Andy and exchange the news from both corners of the world. Being we were just staying overnight in Beijing we stayed at a very luxurious hotel near the airport. Thursday evening George, Andy, myself and the lovely Carol who works with China Kennel Union, feasted on a sumptuous dinner. Carol immediately demonstrated that our trip would be a very pleasurable assignment. It is no easy task to organize all the itinerary for four people in a foreign land. Besides hotel accommodations, etc., drivers had to be arranged for meeting us in Beijing then Hangzhou and to places where the sightseeing would take place. Friday morning we met Ted and Christine Pickering, who had arrived late Thursday evening from Sydney, Australia. Immediately I realized it was going to be a pleasure to spend the next five days in their company. We had never met before but quickly realized we had so many wonderful mutual friends. It always makes foreign assignments more enjoyable if you are with English speaking dog acquaintances. The tremendous effort on the part of China Kennel Union to host the show in Hangzhou was only half of the responsibility for a long week. The CKU was also hosting another weekend in another city. That show was taking place about two hours by the fast train

“The lineup for BIS was comparable to some of our smaller shows. All seven dogs were of top quality, but I made the decision very close between a Wire Fox and a Bichon.�

from Beijing. That meant another large staff to host that show. Four judges were judging there from different corners of the globe. It meant having interpreters that spoke several different languages. Tuesday afternoon the CKU finished up their responsibility with the two different sets of judges. But Wednesday morning the entire process started again. Four more judges were arriving to judge a show in Beijing for the upcoming weekend. At least the following weekend the show being held in Beijing meant not having the added burden of transporting the judges off to a far away city. Friday morning we all gathered at 9 AM to be driven to the Beijing airport for our flight to Hangzhou. There was a delay in departure, but not having to make a connection we were in no hurry. Surprisingly Air China served a very nice lunch on this less than two-hour flight. Upon arriving in Hangzhou two cars and drivers were waiting for us to be driven to the area of The Lake with a Thousand Islands. Driving at high speeds and no traffic it was still slightly over two hours. Our home for the next three nights was a very luxurious Holiday Inn. The beautiful rooms overlooked the lake and some of the Islands. That evening we enjoyed dinner in a private room with the gentlemen that were hosting the show in the beautiful resort area. The show was held nearby the hotel in a beautiful gym of a local boarding

school. The slight drawback was that the air conditioning was not turned on until just before the show started. It took several hours until the temperature was comfortable. It was explained to us that the cost of the air conditioning was 1,000 RBM per hour or about $200 US dollars per hour. Four shows were held during the twoday period. There were 165 dogs entered in each show. George and I each judged an entire show Saturday and Sunday. Ted and Christine judged a show. Like in most foreign lands the first day the show usually has a short delay in starting time. Carol and Wendy were two very efficient stewards who spoke perfect English. Even though this was an FCI show critiques were only required for the BOB winners. Carol and Wendy had tape recorders that recorded our critiques. This moved much quicker than a clerk having to hand write them. The finals started about 4:45 PM. First of the finals was Best Baby. The best baby from each breed entered the big ring and it was a ring full of about 25 beautiful youngsters. Having judged all of them at the breed level they did not have to be examined. They were placed four, three, two, one. There were several outstanding babies that had to go without receiving a placement. Here my winner was a five-month-old Pom bitch that had it all. She had the proper fox like expression, her outline was a perfect circle, four great legs and her attitude was the icing on the cake. For best puppy only seven entered the ring since they had

already competed at group level. My winning male Dobe puppy had much to offer. He was quite square, good angles with good bone and substance. He could finish quickly and easily in the States. Although this was an FCI show, they only have seven groups. China has relatively few Dachshunds. The Sporting and Hound having small entries do not need to be split either. There were only two hounds entered, one each for Whippets and Afghans. The Sporting consisted of only three breeds - a fair amount of Labradors and Goldens and a single entry of a nice American Cocker. The bulk of the 165 dogs came from Working, Herding and Toys. The lineup for BIS was comparable to some of our smaller shows. All seven dogs were of top quality, but I made the decision very close between a Wire Fox and a Bichon. I reexamined the Bichon and Wire on the table and reaffirmed both were beautiful to go over. The difficult decision went to the Sire in that I felt as breeding stock he has so much to offer. He was bred in the States by Bill McFadden, but has a very international pedigree. I had never judged the dog in the States, but had seen him win in very stiff competition at the World Show recently in Budapest. The glorious Bichon bitch was bred in China. For a long time now Bichons have been very strong in China. The Paray Kennels of Paul Flores and Tray Pittman have sold some wonderful stock to China. Our own Dennis Brown has also sold top dogs to China. The Bichon Dennis is enjoying so much success with in the States is bred and owned in China. I Continued on page 133

learned after the show that at the end of the month Dennis will be going to China and will bring this bitch back to the States. Like so much of the world today, there was a lot of depth in Border Collies. Two of the top winning Borders in the States today hail from China. Most of the shows now in China have their largest entry in Border Collies. A very promising Border Collie was my third choice for Best. Fourth went to a yellow, male Lab that was a middle of the real dog. He could be appreciated by both all round and breeder judges. Labs have greatly improved since my first visits to China. This is largely due to the fact that the dedicated Lab exhibitors only go to the FCI shows. Two years ago while in Langfang, I got to watch Labs two days and was disappointed not being able to judge them. In previous trips judging for China Kennel Club, they were of extremely poor quality. The China Kennel Club always did attract some high quality Goldens. It is always refreshing in all the Asian countries not to see so many short legged Goldens as we have in the States. Hopefully the Asian countries will prevent this from becoming a serious problem in Goldens. Foreign assignments are always so educational in seeing and judging breeds we do not have. It becomes a great learning experience being able to discuss these breeds with people that have a knowledge in these breeds. When new breeds come into AKC it is so much easier when we have had the opportunity to learn about them in foreign lands. Of the 165 dogs I judged only one of them had I ever judged before. Since I had

judged in this nearby area just about a year and a half ago, I thought I might be faced with a lot of the same dogs. It was explained that most of the exhibitors when they receive their champion titles retire the dogs to make room for upcoming hopeful champions. This is so different from the States where you might judge the same dog twenty-four times in a two-year period. Here, like so much of Europe, the titles are much more sought after than the rating systems. Sunday George and I had the day free to enjoy sightseeing of the Lake of a Thousand Islands. Since Christine and Ted had done the same tour the day before they gave us some tips to make the tour more enjoyable. Around 10 AM we and our two tour guides boarded one of the many boats for touring the lake. The lake is only 60 years old and came about due to a tremendous earthquake. Before the earthquake a city, surrounded by mountains, once occupied this area. When the earthquake hit the city was over taken by water and now the previous city lies several hundred feet below the beautiful lake. The thousand islands, of various sizes, are the remaining mountain peaks. The tour consisted of stopping at three large islands. At the first island visited we climbed up the hill to a restaurant for lunch where thousands of tourists dined. Our guides warned us that the second island stop entailed climbing up about 500 steps. George and I decided to remain onboard and enjoy the lovely view. Ted and Christine told us stop three was the most enjoyable and interesting island to visit. This was a very beautiful island with lovely temples and attractions and only a very short climb. Arriving back around 5 PM, George and I had a chance to enjoy a shower, check emails and a cold beer, before Andy, Carol, Ted and Christine returned from the show. With the show starting exactly on time and Ted and Christine judging quickly they all returned

“Foreign assignments

are always so educational in seeing and judging breeds we do not have. It becomes a great learning experience being able to discuss these breeds with people that have a knowledge in these breeds. When new breeds come into AKC it is so much easier when we have had the opportunity to learn about them in foreign lands.”

to the hotel around six, which was about 45 minutes earlier than the day before. It was interesting to learn the impressions of Ted and Christine about the show and the dogs. This was their first time judging in China and it was evident they quickly developed a fondness for the sport developing in China. Monday morning as we departed the area to drive back to Hangzhou airport we could not get over the amount of building that was taking place. So many large hotels and apartment buildings were being added. This appears that the area of The Lake with a Thousand Islands will become a very major tourist resort in China. Arriving back in Beijing around 4 PM allowed for a couple of hours of great bargain shopping at the world famous Silk Market. People come from all over the world to shop here and enjoy the bartering over the pricing. One can pick out material and have a suit made within 24 hours, very inexpensively. Shortly after 7 o’clock we all headed to a super chic restaurant. This wonderful place has gotten such recognition that one now is also located in Los Angeles. Now one can enjoy great shopping on Rodeo Drive and enjoy great Chinese cuisine. The only difference will be your costs. Tuesday afternoon Carol and Andy escorted George and I back to the Beijing for our flights home. Ted and Christine were spending a few days sightseeing in Beijing and then treating themselves to a few days in Hong Kong before returning to Sydney. I have always enjoyed my assignments in China in the various locations, but this trip seemed especially enjoyable. The passion exhibitors and handlers have for the sport is heartwarming to witness. The rating systems have not overtaken their enthusiasm. They say you cannot turn back the clock, but the shows there remind me so much of the way dog shows used to be when I was growing up here in the States.
