THE OCTOBER BOARD MINUTES

The

October

Board

Minutes

contained some fairly strong stands taken by the Board and should be read in its entirety. Thinking of this meeting as merely another meeting which only introduced yet again another reformatted form of judges approval situation is a giant mistake as some of the topics discussed and positions taken are novel for this Board and indicate willingness on the part of this Board to take on the Delegate Committee System heretofore not shown. Naturally most of the fancy’s reaction has been about the judges’ approval scheme but the reality of the matter is that in the long run insofar as the life of the corporation is concerned this is a secondary issue. It almost looks as though the Board Chairman and/or his fellow Board Members or a combination of both have finally decided to take positions on subjects it had ignored and or by-passed the past several years. Whether or not this is a change of heart brought about by the upcoming elections or a realization of its lack of showing its true muscle or other unknown reasons this is a welcomed shift in attitude insofar as these pages are concerned. The basic problem underlying the presentation of these Minutes and the shift noted by these pages is that not only was much of this done under the guise of Executive Session but that the Minutes fail to state what was done in Executive Session and what was recorded and published in the open. A basic guide in determining whether or not something was done in Executive Session of course is whether a recorded vote is given or not. For instance in the revised judges’ approval system the Minutes merely state that a Board majority approved the proposal without recording the vote of those in favor and those against the proposal. Such was the case with the concept of the approval change proposed by Mr. Kalter through the Board. On the other hand there is a definitive vote given as to whether or not to distribute a survey to the entire Fancy to get as much input as possible with Dr. Garvin the only nay vote. This indicates that at least that portion of the proposal was recorded and in the open and not discussed in the closed executive session. This lumping together of topics discussed in Executive Session was an unusual and different presentation of the Board Minutes and was both confusing and detrimental to presenting a more understandable version of the Board Minutes. As to specific action or inaction on the part of the Board only one or two will be discussed this week as more time and information are needed than is disclosed particularly in the areas of the 2015 Budget, Marketing and Judges Approvals changes are concerned.

A FIRST TIME STAND

Ever since the original formation of the Delegate Committees

there has remained a hard core group of concerned AKC followers who believed that David Merriam and John Ronald, the two people most responsible for getting the Committee idea written and pushed through the Delegate Body, overstepped the scope of what the Delegate Body could and could not do under the terms of AKC’s Constitution and By-Laws. It took a while for these Committees to develop and find their place within the structure of the working body of the AKC. Years after the Committee foundation became stronger and certain Committees matured and became powerful political entities on their own. Particularly was this true of the Parent Club Committee, which today in a way is a fiefdom within the organization of its own. And while some questioned the growth and power usurped in some instances by these Committees in the political in-fighting of AKC certainly in the case of the Kalter led Boards the Committees were encouraged to develop into the entity which the Fancy could turn to when progressive and pro-active stands for change were to be introduced. It was as though the Board and the Clubs had willingly turned its power over to the Delegate Committees themselves. Now comes the Delegate Advocacy and Advancement Committee with proposals that covered a number of issues involving all aspects of AKC governance and the Sport generally. And guess what the Board (possibly in Executive Session--possibly not) reared its head in defiance and said that the scope of the recommendations EXCEEDED THE CHARGE of this Delegate Committee and asked the Coordinating Committee which consists of the various heads of all the Delegate Committees to review these proposals prior to Board consideration. What a needed but surprising reaction from a Board Chairman who in the past encouraged requests by these Committees to allow the use of AKC staff and resources, took the Coordinating Committee out to private dinners and is now asking for a redefinition to determine the scope of Delegate Committee responsibilities. A long time in coming insofar as these pages are concerned and finally a step in the right direction after several years of catering to the whims and desires of some over-reaching individuals in our sport.

AS WHAT CROW FLIES

Yet some additional new proposals by yet

another Delegate Committee -the Delegate Dog Show Rules Committee (DSRC)- were reviewed by the Board. (One wonders could David and John or Stanley Saltzman really envision lo those many years ago that their proposals for Delegate Committees would turn into a shadow type Board?) Exclusivity and giving clubs permission to continue holding shows in the area if the host club withdraws its permission were discussed. Failing to hit the table was the matter of the 125 miles Rule, which by taking a ruler as the crow would fly gives clubs for instance from New York City the right to hold shows in Springfield, Mass. Isn’t that “old crow” just a bit beat up a 100 or so years later? How can AKC be it the Board or its Delegates continue to use the antiquated version of measuring territorial distinction by saying “how the crow flies”?? Is it not time for some of these very creative people to come up with a new measure in determining distance when it comes to territorial distances between shows as well as for judges’ assignments as well? One would think and hope so too in this computer age, which AKC seems so devoted to particularly when it’s convenient for them to so do.

FIDO, CLEO, SNIF and PETPACE

At least as early as 2007 DOG NEWS began

reporting about the development of wearable computers for dogs. In August of 2013 Shaun Coen reported for DOG NEWS about FIDO (facilitating interactions for dogs with occupations), which was initially developed at Georgia Tech. And as the dog technology sector continues to expand the “smart collar” boon offers devices that can track every aspect of a dog’s activities both through veterinarians and owners and phones and computers. Read in this week’s issue Shaun’s fascinating analysis of this up and coming pet monitoring industry and how it may or may not be affecting American lives today. How viable and at what cost American pet owners are willing to go in these fields which easily cover health areas as well are interesting questions to ask. But one thing maybe a certainty which is that in the years to come the $2,000 Hermes leash or carrying case maybe seriously challenged by FIDO and CLEO computer collars as yet another example of American extravagances showered on the pets we so dearly love.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

What was it in the AKC Budget of 2015 that

caused the Board to return back to its CFO and Staff for further discussion at its December meeting in Orlando? Usually the Budget is adopted in October, November the latest. The Minutes read, “The Budget is to be presented in the same format as in past years to facilitate comparisons.” Does that line indicate a different format was used this year unacceptable to the Board or did Staff’s (again per the Minutes) recommendation for a small individual registration fee “increase” presumably to cover yet more losses in registration income fall upon such deaf ears that the Board and again per the Minutes tell Staff not to include such an increase in the 2015 Budget?

Inside The Sport Some of California’s best kept secrets are the small oldfashioned dog shows held in some of the lighter populated areas of the state on weekends, just as in the good old days. The Two Cities Kennel Club, serving Yuba City and Marysville, truly fits this description of a fabulous two-show weekend. The Fairgrounds are lovely with lots of shade trees; the club members work hard to make their Saturday/Sunday events user-friendly; and a feeling of good will pervades the show. People are having fun! In a recent column I addressed this issue of why activities such as rally, agility and others have grown so in recent years compared to conformation competition-which has done anything but grow at most shows of late. Perhaps one answer is that people don’t have as much fun showing dogs as they do participating in other activities. Exactly why that is so is not completely clear. However, the degree of difficulty in learning about the 14 Dog News

sport and putting your limited beginner skills to use might be one of the many reasons conformation is not as attractive as it once was. And perhaps another is the oft-quoted fact that there are simply too many shows. Priming the conformation pump is something I hope to address more in depth in another article aimed at helping us utilize more of the talented young people in our sport. At Yuba City it was a pleasant surprise to pick up my armband from a handsome young ring steward appropriately dressed in coat and tie. Fifteen-year-old Parker Robinson was ring stewarding with the proficiency of those who have performed this task for more years than he has been alive! And he served as both outside and inside ring steward, easily handling the duties sometimes covered by two such officials. Parker was “discovered” by MBF superintendent Ralph Price while helping his parents set up for a Maltese Specialty last autumn in Napa. Watching the young man work with the mature efficiency of any adult, Ralph recruited him and soon had him Continued on page 64

BAbbling IS THERE A RIGHT OR WRONG...? By Geir Flyckt-Pedersen

S

itting here reflecting over what has happened in the world of dog shows over the last few months- and especially what I observed during the wonderful Montgomery weekend, my question is simply: Is there really a completely right or a totally wrong decision made in the show ring? Just look at what happened during this one week in October. Four shows on consecutive days with for us terrier addicts Montgomery as a climax. Take a look at results from these shows and compare notes. You will witness an extreme variation in as well results as judging procedures. In some cases rather confusing and not really understandable-but in other cases totally acceptable. In my humble opinion that is. We keep repeating this cliché about “on the day”, but if you are at the end of a dog’s leash every day you are surely not aware of how differently an animal can look from day to day. A very good friend and one of this country’s top handlers asked me after the first day what I thought of his “exhibit” that has been winning a lot. I had to be honest and 18 Dog News

told him that I was not impressed. Two days later I watched the breed judging and surrounded by a number of excellent specials the “exhibit” stood out and virtually blew me away. I had a rather interesting experience myself during the week. For the first time in what to me seemed like a hundred years we were showing a couple of terriers. One of them always looking so impressive running around or just standing outside my office window staring at me. Alert and inquisitive. Felt pretty certain she would do ok. The other one cute as hell, moves with temperament and confidence and I believed she would look ok. Well, to make a long story a little shorter: On the third day I asked someone else to show the first one so I could be ringside and see what she looked like. And I was not very impressed as it was a totally different picture than what I expected. The fact that she was in season the next day might have been a contributing factor so she simply did not feel all that well. The point is though, that had I not been able to see her in action I would still question why she did not win… The other one just enjoyed her very first show, enjoyed it even more the second day, the third day- and on the fourth day was kicking her hind legs telling

me how much she enjoyed this “new life”. This scenario reminded me of a situation that happened some 25 years ago. We had a litter from one of our excellent brood bitches. With different males she had produced a number of dogs that were doing well in many countries, but this litter was rather disappointing apart from one male who stood out like a sore thumb! He had an attitude to go with it- and until he reached teeth changing age I thought he would be the best thing happening in the world since the introduction of sliced bread! Tail and ears were always ok, but the rest just very plain and ordinary despite maintaining his great attitude. So for the next year or so I tried to pass him on to any “passersby”, would actually give him away, but all turned him down. If not good enough for you...is probably what they thought…. Decided to show him, qualified him for Crufts, trimmed him myself, asked Peter Green’s cousin Lynn Snow to handle him for me as he was entered in Open where I already had another dog. During judging of the class I happened to look across the ring seeing this beautiful dog in the corner. And I am still embarrassed by the fact that Continued on page 68

How involved, if at all, do you think AKC’s judge’s department should become in determining the appropriateness of remarks on the judge’s e-line with regard to future assignments and/or past, present and future exhibits and the like? Karolynne McAteer The sad thing is that a question like this would have to be asked. I am very certain this list was not conceived for inappropriate use. It is one thing to say you are looking for an assignment in a specific breed, or discuss breed standards in general including any question you might have regarding a standard...it is quite another to get into the specifics of future assignments or single out any exhibits, past or present, but it is difficult to make people appropriate...that’s a full time job. Since monitoring a list would be time consuming and have to be consistent to be efficient, I can’t imagine anyone in the judge’s department having the time to do this. I think the most effective monitoring should come from within the list, where we have the ability to reply to offenders and hopefully make them feel chastised by their peers. Margaret Reed Great question! The First Amendment is one of this country’s most cherished institutions — and one that is profoundly misunderstood. The confusion arises from those first five words: “Congress shall make no law.” Congress isn’t allowed to abridge your freedom of speech. That means the First Amendment only applies to the government-not private parties. So we find ourselves living in a period of uneasy truce: people around the world are sharing their opinions on the internet like never before, but they’re doing so under private censorship regimes equally unique in time. It’s a well known fact that there is more speech than ever before under more potentially unchecked control. Corporations are enabling and controlling the ability for the average person to reach a much broader audience than ever thought possible. It’s important to realize that the top decision maker at Twitter has more censorship power than the Supreme Court justices. It’s imperative that we develop policies that better protect freedom of speech from not only government interference but also corporate censorship. Fred C. Bassett I don’t personally use or read the Judge’s E-Line, so I can’t comment on that specifically. I will say that I think it is inappropriate for judges to use any Social Media to make a public comment on specific dogs or people. That is unwise and in poor taste, and judges should be policing themselves. Once a judge decides to make a public statement via any means, including Social Media, then it becomes part of public records and the AKC Judges Department is within their authority to act as they see necessary. I use Facebook myself, and keep my posts and comments very general and positive. I enjoy it, and police myself on keeping it appropriate.

You And Your

Vet

BY Merry Fitzgerald, DVM.

How do I calculate my bitch’s whelping date? The most accurate calculation of the whelping date is to count 65 days from the LH (luteinizing hormone) surge. This requires collection of daily blood samples and a laboratory that is capable of determining LH levels. Measurement of progesterone levels is more readily available. The time of the LH surge can be estimated as the day that the progesterone level first exceeds 2.0 ng/ml, as long as the progesterone level continues to rise. The whelping date will be 65 days – plus or minus one day- from the date the progesterone level reaches 2.0 ng/ml and continues to rise.

Will having my bitch palpated for pregnancy harm the puppies? The ideal time for abdominal palpation is 28-30 days after the last breeding. At this stage the gestational sacs are distinctly round and easily distinguished from other abdominal organs. Depending on the size of the bitch, the sacs range in size from a marble to a golf ball. At four weeks along, the fetus is the size of a bean and is safely encased in the amniotic fluid of the gestational sac. Palpation will not harm or dislodge the fetus. 26 Dog News

Are sonograms recommended during pregnancy? Ultrasound examination is a safe way to confirm pregnancy and monitor the development of the fetuses. Pregnancy can be detected as early as day 2022 by an experienced sonographer, but is more reliable at day 30, especially with small litters. It can also detect problems in the uterus, such as resorption of the fetuses. This allows you to provide appropriate supportive care and medication, as needed. During the procedure, the probe of the ultrasound ma-

chine moves continually over the abdomen as it scans both horns of the pregnant uterus. As a result, the actual count of fetuses can be inaccurate. A radiograph taken in the last week of the pregnancy will give you a more definite puppy count.

Is there a test to determine if she is definitely pregnant? Yes. The presence of significant amounts of the hormone relaxin is a reliable indicator of canine pregnancy. The WITNESS RELAXIN kit made by Synbiotics Corporation can determine pregnancy by measuring relaxin levels in blood samples. The kit detects relaxin produced by the developing placentas as early as day 20 after the LH surge. Factors such as the breed, size of the bitch, and litter size affect the level of relaxin in the blood. Approximately 80% of pregnant bitches test positive between day 20 and 28 post-LH surge, although some may not show a positive result until day 31. I have found the test to be 100% accurate when testing 35 days after the last breeding. The test can be performed by your veterinarian in about 10 minutes. A small amount of blood is drawn and the test is run with either a serum or plasma sample. Any negative result is considered indicative of non-pregnancy; however, two negative results one week apart may be required to confirm the negative result, especially when the date of mating is unknown. A positive result indicates pregnancy. A weak positive result may be observed early in the pregnancy or with a very small litter. Continued on page 60

Judging The Judges What is the first thing you look at when you open a premium list? It is the judges’ names. They are what determine where we show and whether we will drive 80 miles or 1,200 miles to show to them. In order to make those decisions, we study the judges. By Patricia Gail Burnham While a judge is busy judging dogs, knowledgeable exhibitors are judging the judge’s performance. In general the exhibitors know more about the strengths and weaknesses of their competition than a judge who has less than two minutes to evaluate a dog. This has nothing to do with whether judges are good judges or bad judges. It has to do with what their priorities are and what they are looking for in a good dog. This is why the AKC is never going to be able to come up with a judges’ approval plan that rewards “good” judges and does not advance “bad” judges. Put simply, judges are neither “good” nor “bad.” They just have differing priorities. So my good judge may be your bad judge. For me, a good judge is one who is looking for the same qualities in a dog that I value and breed for. And the bad judges aren’t really bad. They are just looking for qualities in a dog that I don’t value. The late Afghan Hound judge Connie Miller told me a story about one of her friends who was a very frequent judge. She said that if he, and she, and I judged a large specialty entry, she and I would make our first cut by selecting all the good moving, sound, dogs. Then we would look in that group for a pretty dog. But her friend would make his first cut to choose all the pretty dogs. Then he would look in that group to try to find a sound one. We had different priorities. I am an unabashed sound movement judge even though the standard for my original breed doesn’t 30 Dog News

mention movement. That isn’t because the standard writers didn’t care about movement. They assumed that any judge back in the 1920’s would automatically look for good movement. Many of them were horsemen and good movement in my breed is very much like good movement in a Thoroughbred horse: an effortless trot and sound movement coming and going. They were looking for what would be good movement on a good hunter-not a hackney pony or a 5 Gaited Saddle horse. But sound movement judges appear to be in a decreasing minority. And there are lots of dog shows so exhibitors get to pick and choose which judges they will show to. In order to do that we judge the judges. When someone calls to report a win or a loss, the first question is, “Who was the judge?” If he put up a sound, medium sized dog then folks with similar dogs will show to him when he shows up in their section of the country. First hand observation is even better than second hand information. If a judge shows an obvious preference for Tremendous Reach and Drive (TRAD) and is willing to forgive the dubious down and back movement that often goes with it, then they go onto my “Rather not show to them” list. If they are really extreme, they go onto the “Wouldn’t show to them if they were judging the last dog show on the Planet” list. Interestingly enough, a lot of very active judges are on that list for me. The Perfect Test. A few years ago we had a special shown in this area a lot who was very helpful in sorting out judges. She had a ton of side gait. But her elbows were loose and she waddled going away like she had a full diaper. She also hated to show. Her handler

would have to keep a thumb pressed into her belly to keep her from sinking to the ground. She was the perfect test for judges. Judges who put her up were TRAD judges who didn’t care about down and back soundness. She did quite a lot of winning since there are more TRAD judges out there than soundness judges. Just putting a good special up over her would get a judge into the “good” list. But when a good sound puppy went BOB over the special that judge got a gold star for being brave enough to reward movement regardless of age. But different exhibitors have different lists. The judges on my “bad” list will be the judges on the “good” list for exhibitors who value TRAD and devalue soundness. This is why the AKC will never be able to make all judges judge the same. If fact, if they did all judge the same way dog shows would be much smaller. Now if a judge doesn’t like your type, you can look for one that does. If all judges were TRAD judges, or head judges, or soundness judges, the pool of show dogs would shrink as the breeders who value and breed for the minority type of dog would drop out. Disagreement among judges is actually good for dog shows. But it makes it hard for the AKC to second-guess their judges. There is no absolute right and wrong in judging. That gives us hope for the next show. If a judge writes about how judges who judge on soundness often fail to put up the best dog, that is a red flag. It makes me suspicious that they are TRAD judges, or worse yet, head or hair judges. When I see a non-toy breed described as a “head breed” it makes me cringe. All dogs need functional bodies a lot more than they need pretty heads. Not that I would turn down a pretty head with a functional body behind it. So while the judges are judging dogs, the exhibitors are busy judging the judges. All I ask of a judge is that their priorities can be identified by watching them judge, so that I can sort them into the “Show to them whenever possible” list or the “rather not’ and the ”not ever” list. And we always show to provisional judges to see where they fit on our lists. They are also likely to have read our standard more recently than long established judges. Since nobody can memorize 50 standards, old timers are more likely to be judging by the generic show dog standard. I don’t want to leave the impression that I object to lots of old time judges. The sun rose and set on Langdon Skarda and Bill Brainard. We need more like them.

riginally part of McClellan Air Force Base, this facility was developed from the Officers’ Club and housing after the base was decommissioned in 2001. Most of the “cottages” have small fenced yards lush with beautiful California vegetation. There was also a large fenced area about 40’ x 80’ for dogs to run at large and shake off the kinks of travel. What a delight for the hounds and their owners to have areas for free play that were also safe! The main building hosted meeting rooms, a restaurant, a banquet hall, and a huge patio where the club swimming pool used to be. The patio arrangement made for a spacious outdoor lounging area, as well as the perfect spot to hold the Top 20 event. It is a testament to teamwork and resiliency that this National even took place! During the months preceding the event, key members of the Show Committee experienced life-threatening health crises or catastrophic events. Life happens, but this was the perfect storm of problems that could have resulted in cancellation of the entire show. Instead, people jumped in to assume responsibilities and did a LOT of on-the-job learning. Particular compliments should be paid to the eventual Show Chair, Amanda Gardner, who had never even been to a National before but managed to pull things together beautifully with the help of many others. Early in the week a full complement of hounds were entered in tracking and trailing trials. Mantrailing differs from Tracking in the manner in which the hound works the scent. A successful identification of the runner is also involved; in the two upper levels more than one runner is involved, requiring scent discrimination based on who supplied the scent article.

Musings

Obedience and Rally By Minta “Mike” Williquette

As it has been a few months since I’ve written a column, I would like to catch you up on what I have been doing in the dog world. Most of you know I show PBGVs in all AKC and UKC events for which they are eligible to compete. I am very proud of the fact that I have earned advanced titles with them in all but tracking. I am hoping a TDX will come with my young dogs. I think the following will give you an idea why I feel a strong base in obedience is necessary for all other events you will compete in, including conformation. I started agility training with Glee this spring, but with bad weather and traveling we didn’t have many training sessions although I have jumps, weave poles, and a teeter-totter in the backyard. Despite this, I decided to enter her in agility at our national to support the entry. Low and behold she earned her first Jumpers with Weaves leg and did well in Standard, however didn’t qualify. I attribute this success to her obedience training as she listened to my verbal commands and took direction from my hand signals. I have been training her for Utility, so she 44 Dog News

knew to go away from me, and to take jumps on my signals. Encouraged by this success, I worked in the backyard and entered trials in WI. Again she qualified, this time in both NA and JWW. I cannot emphasize enough how important her obedience training is in contributing to these qualifying runs. During this time period she also earned her Master Hunter title. One of the criteria of the test is cooperation with the handler in the field. Guess what? She knows to come and take direction when in the field because of, you guessed it, her obedience training. For the remainder of the summer, we focused on conformation. I decided as Glee had qualified, and was entered in the AKC Obedience Classic in Orlando, it would be fun to prove she had beauty and brains. I started showing her in the Owner Handler Series. This would also be a backup event if she came in season for the Classic. Of course being a GCH she knew how to gait, but was mediocre at free stacking as was I at stacking her on the table. We both needed to improve. Here again Obedience had taught her to stand and stay, so all that was needed was to practice foot placement. I am happy to say she is now ranked number four in the PBGV rankings for NOHS. Call me crazy in my older

years, but I am still up to a challenge. Therefore I decided I wanted a puppy. As I am not ready to breed Glee, because she and I have much more to accomplish, that route was not an option. I do, however, have a good friend with lovely Beagles and I now have a four month-old Beagle bitch. Not much grooming compared to the PBGVs which, after spending hours washing, brushing, chalking, etc. at the clusters this summer, I was all for. I figured I would have the temperament and personality of a smooth coated PBGV, I figured wrong. This will again be a new experience in training. Because I firmly believe you can compete in several events concurrently, I am not only training gaiting and stacking for her entry into the 4-6 month puppy class in conformation, she is learning to take and hold a dowel to start dumbbell work. Sit and down are being taught and she knows stand for the ring already. Her name is Roirdan’s New Direction, call name Quinn. I figure it was fitting to keep with the Glee theme and also the changes in my life. Recently there have been some changes in the Obedience and Rally rules, and also some published suggestions from the Obedience advisory committee. I will address these topics in my next column. In closing, I lost a good friend who was an important contributor to the dog show world. Jim McTernan will be missed by all those who knew him. Exercise finished.

arxism M s This Judge’s Point Of View

Growth of a Judge

B Y

S I D

M A R X

Most people understand that it takes a young dog a while to mature and grow into an experienced show dog. We also expect it to take time for a new exhibitor to become an accomplished handler. Why then, do we not realize that it takes a judge some time to grow into being a good judge? There are very definite steps - and a nebulous timeline - to maturing as a judge. I am sure that almost all of the people who apply to judge do so with the best of intentions. Some have been disappointed at how they perceive their breed is being judged, and want to get in the ring to do it correctly. A young judge often talks about wanting to “give back to the sport,” and “helping to improve their breed.” This idealism is wonderful, and certainly a wonderful goal. It was mine, and I have tried to keep that still burning in me when I judge. I do think respected judges eventually can have an impact on a breed, but rarely does a “newbie” do this. The process and requirements to apply for judge’s approval is an ever-changing one. It’s like the weather in Colorado - if you don’t like it, wait a while and it will change. Based on what is the program at this moment in time, the process is different for breeders than it is for professional handlers. In general, a breeder can apply for their primary breed. After judging a specific number of shows satisfactorily, the breeder can then begin to apply for more breeds. Retired professional handlers can apply for considerably more breeds the first time around. No, I don’t think this is fair, but that is not my 48 Dog News

point right now. Once the application is complete and some applicants have submitted more than fifty pages - it takes anywhere from three to six months for approval. Why that long? Another enigma. Finally the letter comes stating that you have been approved as an AKC conformation judge. Now you can begin accepting assignments. Up until a couple of years ago, a judge could not “solicit” assignments (and I still don’t believe in it). So those who followed the rules had to just sit and wait for the phone to ring. It was truly amazing how many already had 3-4 assignments lined up before they were approved - without soliciting. What usually happens now is that friends in kennel clubs help the new judge get her first few assignments. The demise of the printed AKC Gazette made it even more difficult for new judges to let people know they had been approved. (No, I don’t think many people read the digital Gazette). Finally, the phone rings, and you are asked to judge at XYZ Kennel Club. Before you can find your voice, you are asked, “What is your fee?” Fee? you think. Hell, I don’t know. I’m just delighted to be asked, but you can’t say that. “Uh,” you say, “what do you usually pay?” You are told that the club will pay $3 per dog entered (sometimes, if you are very lucky the club pays $4 per dog and one night in a motel.) “Sure,” you say. At this point, you would have paid the club. Later you

begin to think. In order to get to this point you have traveled to National Specialties, Regional Specialties, and various Judges education programs. Conservatively, you have spent more than $3500 for each breed for which you are approved. So, if you are a breeder approved for only one breed, you may get an entry of 3-4. After paying for your flight and motel, you are reimbursed $12 for this assignment. What a deal! The big day comes, and the “newbie” judge walks into the center of the ring. In addition to a great deal of excitement, pride, and a desire to do a wonderful job, lots of thoughts are flooding her head: look for good depth of muzzle, balance, elegance, sound movement front and rear, etc. As a breeder she was disappointed in the lack of soundness she saw in so many breeds, including hers. She is determined that soundness is a significant part of what she will find. In comes her first class, and ... wait ... none of them is a dog she would want to take home. There is a wide disparity in heads, and none are very good. All the dogs have straight fronts, and none of them has good rear movement. She is determined to find a really good, sound breed representative. So she moves them again. Nope - didn’t get any better. “What do I do now?” Finally, she realizes that she can’t stall any longer. She has to make decisions and place the class. She points, and goes to get the ribbons. She hands them out, and then realizes that she did not mark her judge’s book. Thankfully, her steward has recorded the placements. She continues her assignment of two breeds, and is mentally exhausted when she is done

judging 14 dogs. Her disillusionment has begun. Now she gets to sit with the AKC Representative, who had observed her judging. “Tell me how you decided on your placements,” the Rep. asks her. “To be honest,” Newbie Judge says, “I was very disappointed in the quality. I finally had to make a decision on which one moved a little better than the others.” “Uh huh,” says the Rep. “Well, there wasn’t much of an entry so I will mark this as insufficient to observe. You took a little too long. I think you still have some studying to do.” How’s that for a first assignment? Now this is a completely fictitious scenario, but it happens more often than not for new judges. After studying very hard about what the perfect HuntDog is, the new judge walks into the ring, and is hit in the face with reality. This happens to all new judges. The perfect dog you studied does not exist in reality (except for the ones on my couch). During their first few judging assignments, most judges enter the ring looking for that perfect dog. Many leave the ring confused and disillusioned. If they are lucky, they are observed by one of the many AKC Reps who understands he or she is there to help the judge. If she is not lucky, she gets a Rep who wants to flex her muscles. This can have a great impact on the judge’s first assignment. I know judges who have gotten so disillusioned by the lack of quality at times, and by the judging they saw going on around them that they considered quitting. There was a time many years ago that I felt like this. I just stopped accepting assignments for a while. One day I went to watch a show and Ann Rogers Clark took me aside and told me that I could not help the situation by staying away. So, I returned. Thanks, Annie. Very quickly a new judge gets a reputation. The judge is labeled as a “movement freak,” or Continued on page 82

TRUE North A Report From Canada

By Allison Foley

T

he 2014 annual Top Dog Dinner and Benefit hosted by the Canadian Professional Handlers Association honouring the top dogs for 2013 was held this year in London, Ontario in conjunction with the Elgin County Kennel Club shows and Purina National. It is the hope of the CPHA and Purina that we can keep the Purina National (awarding more prize money than any other show in Canada) and the Top Dog dinner together so that we have a cohesive “gala” weekend here in Canada worthy of Top Dogs from around the world showing up and Canadian dog fanciers from coast to coast attending. In short it is our vision that this becomes our “Westminster weekend.” Elgin County and Purina had worked hard all week to have the venue look its best. Red carpet, white picket fences and flowers galore adorned the main arena of Western Fair District’s Agriplex. Indeed it looked spectacular. The Purina hospitality booth where Purina Pro members were privy to hot lunch and breakfast each day backstopped the venue with its black glass stretching the width of the arena. With all this fanfare the dinner had to be spectacular. But it would seem that at every turn there was to be an adjustment to our original game plan… Well, we pulled it off but not without a few hiccups. Firstly our very popular MC 52 Dog News

from last year, the gorgeous Madam Regina Reynolds, was absent due to family commitments…We then obtained the services of Dr. Dougie McIntyre, problem one solved. Next the venue, the gorgeous “Carousel Room,” was double booked and the banquet facilitator promised that we would be in the newly renovated Auditorium, the plus side was the Auditorium was at the front of the Agriplex so it was very convenient to the dog show. The problem was an eight million dollar renovation turned the Auditorium into an alcove in the front Lobby. AN ALCOVE!!! There is no real way to fix that. Then the list went on, the chairs were bright blue, the lights didn’t dim, the floor hadn’t been finished, the obedience award had the wrong name on it and the programs were stuck in Winnipeg (a three-hour plane ride away). Shannon Scheer to the rescue. She worked her magic and turned an alcove into a venue. Turned blue chairs into black and made everything come together like we meant it to happen! The painted pumpkins, the private label “top dog” water (courtesy of Kim Groves) together with Shannon’s attention to detail made this night a success. The awards include the Sonny Tougas Bursary (which is one of the funds that the CPHA dinner benefits), Top Puppy, Top Obedience dog, Top Junior Handler (the Mojito), The Sportsmanship Award (the Wenrick), Breeder of the Top Dog, Top Owner Handler (the Kishniga), the Top Ten of All Breeds as well as the Top Working Dog.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the Humanitarian Award was presented posthumously to Nelly Bennett and it was also announced that from now on the Humanitarian award would be awarded in her memory. The highlight of the night for me was when Michael Hill made a very eloquent introduction of our Lifetime Achievement winner Mike MacBeth.

Nicholas Mellor’s Inaugural Sale

Record Breaking St.Bernard Table

Years ago, more than I like to remember, when I started visiting antiques fairs and collectors markets looking for anything doggy, I was constantly seeing small crudely carved wooden St. Bernards with barrels attached to collars around their necks.

ost would have been bought as cheap mementos of visits to Switzerland, a country that has been a haven for tourists and travellers since the early 19th century. The St. Bernard breed has a long association with the country, thanks to the Hospice of the Great St. Bernard Pass that 54 Dog News


stands at over 8,000 feet and which has been home to the breed for countless generations. Little did I realise then just how beautiful and intricate some of these carvings could be and the craftsmanship and skill needed to create them and for originality, quality and functionality, they don’t come much better than this piece of furniture. It recently appeared at auction in England and because of its quality, condition and the subject matter its commercial appeal was guaranteed. Universally referred to as ‘Black Forest’, virtually all these carvings were done in Switzerland, as was the case

with this table carved in the closing years of the 19th century. It is made of figured walnut, the rectangular top measuring 4ft 3in x 2ft 9in is supported at one end by a St. Bernard standing on its hind legs and resting its forepaws on the table top. The other end is supported by fruiting branches in which are two playful St. Bernard puppies. A lot of thought had obviously gone into its design and creation. Sadly it was not signed unlike many ‘Black Forest’ pieces of this quality. It was included with some other ‘Black Forest’ items in Nicholas Mellor’s inaugural sale at Newark and despite not having a signature carried an estimate of £8,000-12,000, more than twice that of other ‘Black Forest’ lots in the sale. Not surprisingly it did even better than expectations selling for £17,000. This was the highest price seen at auction in the UK for a ‘Black Forest’ carving for some time, eclipsing the £14,500 bid for a 3ft 2in high carving of a poacher sold by Sworders in 2012. This was signed by the so-called ‘carving king’, Johann Huggler, whose work is the most sought after by collectors. Nevertheless, the record goes to Alfred Stahli whose carving of an eagle sold for £36,000 at Sotheby’s in 2007. The tradition goes back to 1816 when a man named Christian Fischer hit upon the idea of making simple wooden objects specifically for tourists, which he sold by the Giessbach Falls, an attraction close to Brienz. By the end of the century it had become the major industry for Brienz and neighbouring towns and villages with an estimated 2,000 carvers working in the area. By the middle years of the century what had started out simply as ‘folk art’ had been developed by some of the more skilled carvers into art of great merit. The most outstanding pieces were exhibited at the great exhibitions of the age - London in 1851, Philadelphia in 1876, Chicago in 1893 and Paris in 1900 – alongside other great institutions of the time such as Tiffany and Gallé. Beside St. Bernards, bears, stags and other images of the forest are the most popular and today usually command the highest prices. The mountain resorts of Switzerland became some of the most popular destinations in Europe for tourists with virtually every tourist picking up a few of the carvings to take home as souvenirs. Queen Victoria was among them, no doubt passing on the ‘tat’ and going for some of the better pieces to add to the souvenirs in the Royal Collection. Dog News 55


IN August of 2013 I reported on a development in wearable computers that allowed dogs to be outfitted with a vest containing a microprocessor and four different censors that dogs activate by biting, tugging or putting their mouths nearby, which would then relay messages to hearing impaired handlers through an earpiece and allow others to see visual messages on the dog’s head-mounted display. Dubbed FIDO (facilitating interactions for dogs with occupations), the system was created by a trainer of assistance dogs who is also a professor at Georgia Tech, a fellow professor and Google Glass tech lead, a research scientist and a dog clothing designer. FIDO was hailed as a breakthrough in how dogs can interact with humans and as a tremendous asset to bomb and drugsniffing dog teams, as well as an aide to blind and disabled people. The potential practical possibilities seemed endless. The dog technology sector continues to expand. As the smartphone market has grown, with approximately 65% of Americans now owning them, there has been a “Smart Collar” boon as well, with many companies offering devices that can track your dog’s location, activity and health and relay that information to owners and veterinarians via phones and computers. According to the Animal Pet Products Association the pet industry took in an estimated $56 billion in 2013 (including pet food, supplies/otc medicine, vet care, services such as grooming and boarding and live animal purchases) with an estimated $58 billion to be spent in 2014, yet it remains to be seen how many people would be willing to spend upward of $100 to $350 —and in some cases an additional monthly charge for the service— for a smart collar that can track a dog’s every move, caloric intake and temperature, among other things. Many companies and individuals are gambling that pet owners would be willing to spend that much money on easing their pets’ — and their own — separation anxiety and that cost will not be an obstacle. The 17 people working on the CLEO Collar, which is now available for preorder at a cost of $149 plus a $5 monthly fee for data storage, have been doing so for free, banking on the future success of the product that was the brainchild of former Blackberry employee Peter Mankowski, who estimates that he spent $1.4 million on developing the CLEO since 1992. The information gleaned from the smart collar goes through a hub in the owner’s residence and connects the pet to a smartphone or a laptop. The CLEO (which stands for Connect, Learn, Enhance, Optimize) is being hailed as a device that can improve the health of pets as well as reduce veterinary costs. For instance, the technology can detect if a dog is walking funny because of calcium build-up in a hip joint and relay this information to an owner and/ or their vet, resulting in earlier detection and less costly treat-

ment. The device will begin shipping by the end of February 2015. Alina Serban, Business Development lead at CLEO Collar told me, “As we have just started our pre-sale phase, so far we have sold less than 100 products. Sales come in a variety of packages, from collars only to multiples, and with our without the PetHub.” The Cleo Collar is not alone in the marketplace. Other gadgets and gizmos touting similar capabilities already on the market include the Fitbark, Whistle, TAGG and PetPace, which reports it has sold 10,000 units so far and donated hundreds more to veterinarians, who were originally viewed as a primary sales channel. “CLEO differs from competitors in terms of both the multitude and the accuracy of the features,” Serban stated. “For example, we are the only pet wearable that provides a thermometer; not only that, but the thermometer scans through the fur with amazing accuracy.” Other collars, such as PetPace, claim to offer thermometer readings, but Serban stated, “We do not consider PetPace’s thermometer a real thermometer. They implement a “high-low” indicator that can tell either hypothermia or fever. Our thermometer scans continuously for actual temperature and this is done with absolutely no skin contact, unlike PetPace’s use of spikes. I wish I could tell you more about the technology we use, but a signed NDA (non-disclosure agreement) would be necessary.” As for the potential market for the CLEO, Serban stated, “Because of some of our unique features, we cater not only to retail customers, but also to vets and pet insurance companies. In addition, our cloud-computing platform renders us as data provider for big data users such as pharma and pet food industries.” Despite CLEO Collars’ presales numbers, Serban maintains, “Given our early stage, today we are valued at 3.2M. We would like to quickly reach 10,000 customers which would lead us to breakeven point.” Serban wouldn’t divulge how much it cost to make each unit nor how much the company would profit from each product sold but she did state, “…we have built CLEO from ground-up, which is providing us with a large profit margin.” Such technology isn’t really new, but rather reflects a way for companies to adapt existing goods into the lucrative pet products market to expand sales and increase profit margins. According to the APPMA, 45 per

cent of United States households own dogs and two-thirds of Americans share their homes with pets. Sporting dog enthusiasts may be familiar with tracking systems for dogs, as Garmin, a leading manufacturer of Global Positioning Systems, has been offering devices to keep tabs on dogs since 2007. The Garmin dog tracker system, called the Astro, was a two-part system, a handheld device for the owner and a dog collar that not only tracked the dog but could relay whether or not it was running, sitting or on point. It had a price tag of $599. Even then, it was not alone in the marketplace. Several other systems tracked dogs and sent alerts to owners’ cell phones, but hunting and sporting dogs often traveled to areas with no coverage. Late in 2007, I reported on SNIF Labs, which offered a collar called the Snif Tag that contained computer chips to keep tabs on how much exercise and activity dogs were getting and would then transfer that information to a home computer and the company’s web site for analysis. Being that SNIF was an acronym for Social Networking In Fur, it comes as no surprise that if dogs wearing the collars met, the chips could exchange identifying signals and records of the meetings could be kept on the server. The dogs’ owners could then contact one another, too. A canine exercise tracker and a hook-up site for dog owners, all for $199.95? Too good to be true? Apparently so. SNIF Labs abandoned the Snif Tag just over a year after its launch, acknowledging that using the technology as a luxury dog product wasn’t the best idea. The technology has since been repurposed and repositioned as an aide for healthcare professionals to ensure that staffs comply with handwashing policies. Pet monitoring devices and exercise trackers may appeal to a certain faction of dog owners, namely wealthy ones who spend a lot of time away from the home and are concerned about their pets’ activity. Lying on the couch all day while the owner isn’t home and then being handed food upon the owner’s return can make for an unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle for a pet. Gadgets that make pets work or think for food or collars with sensors that can open doggy doors to allow them outside for exercise while owners aren’t at home have been hits at recent pet expo events, as have devices that automatically launch balls for games of fetch or remote controlled cars for dogs to chase. Sales of pet treadmills, which dog show fanciers have been using been using for decades, have also increased, according to PetZen, which sells three different sizes of treadmills ranging from $500 to $1,000. While it can’t replicate the joys of owners exercising with a relaxing run with their dogs and it may appeal mostly to the one per centers, it may allay some of their guilt of leaving a dog home alone while allowing them to keep track of its exercise. These technological dog-sitting monitors may be able to alert owners to their dogs’ stress levels and sudden changes in behavior — lethargy, sleeplessness, vomiting, biting and scratching — that may be signs of serious illness. In this age of instant and constant information at one’s fingertips, the technology is certainly available to keep tabs on dogs 24/7. Ultimately the market will dictate whether or not owners are willing or interested in having access to that information and whether or not a clever acronym describing the product is enough to make it viable.

Why does my dog need to wear a Holter monitor? Is shaving the coat necessary? A Holter monitor is a portable device used to continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart. It is named after its inventor, Dr. Norman J. Holter. The monitor is usually worn for 24 hours during normal activity at home. The extended recording period is useful for observing occasional or intermittent cardiac arrhythmias that may not be present during a routine examination or 5-minute electrocardiogram (ECG). Holter monitors are commonly used in boxers and Doberman pinschers for early detection of occult, or hidden, dilated cardiomyopathy and abnormal heart rhythms. Holter monitors are used to determine the changes in the heart rate during normal activity, exercise, and rest or sleep. The report generated from the data collected by the monitor diagnoses and tabulates any irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias. Dogs with abnormal Holter results can be eliminated

60 Dog News

from breeding programs and started on medication before their symptoms become life-threatening. If cardiac disease is found, repeat Holter monitoring can help analyze response to medication and evaluate pacemaker function. The Holter monitor setup consists of a vest containing the monitor which is attached to several ECG lead wires. These lead wires are snapped to electrodes placed on the skin on either side of the chest by the elbows. Tape is placed over the electrodes to hold them in place. After 24 hours, the vest, tape, monitor and leads are removed and the chip or tape from the monitor is sent for analysis. Shaving is recommended although NOT required to Holter your dog. The electrodes must make good contact with the skin in order to get the fully desired recording time. Electrode detachment can occur if they are stuck to hair instead of skin. Shaving

insures the best possible contact to the skin. With thick coats, removing the guard hairs with a number 10 blade may assist in better skin contact, yet allow a less obvious shaved patch in the dog. Dogs with a thinner coat may very well get away with no shaving at all. I have had good success on the Dobermans and boxers I have monitored without shaving. Before the electrodes are attached, I carefully clean and dry the spots with alcohol. Once the leads are attached, they are firmly secured with tape. The neoprene vest keeps everything in place for the 24-hour period. From pre-breeding and pre-surgical screening to annual adult and senior wellness care, Holter monitoring provides invaluable information regarding heart disease. This simple but highly effective device has saved countless human and animal lives since it was introduced almost seventy years ago.

apprenticing under the wise auspices of Northern California’s revered chief ring steward Bill Allen, now deceased. With Walda Green and Jennifer Holloway as his next mentors, Parker is rapidly becoming a go-to guy for dog shows in this part of California. Both Price and fellow MBF official Marti Johnson are dedicated to the concept of bringing young people into our sport. There is no denying that as club officials, ring stewards, exhibitors and other participants in our sport age, the salvation of the dog show world is in the hands of the younger generation. And what a representative of that generation is Parker. When I interviewed him he said a future priority is to wear more comfortable shoes. He also commented on how much he loves meeting all the people and their dogs. And it doesn’t hurt any that he is now being paid for doing something he likes to do! A junior at Antelope High School near Sacramento, Parker is involved in water polo and other activities at school including the Odyssey Club where he hopes to qualify for the state finals. His interesting project requires him to design a structure out of balsa wood that will hold 400 pounds-a task fit for any engineer. Parker likes meeting all of his contemporaries at dog shows yet prefers showing in the breed ring to Junior Showmanship. He finished his first Maltese with some help from his mother in keeping up the coat. Talking to Parker was most enlightening as he

is exactly what the sport needs-youngsters who are interested in doing even more than running around the Junior Showmanship ring. Don’t get me wrongthere is plenty of good in Juniors’ competition. Nonetheless, all too often those kids forget about dog shows once they age out of that classification. Our sport cannot afford the loss of these young people, so more must be done to keep them involved. Tony Pruitt, a college student from Topeka KS, ring stewarded for me during the Capital City Classic Cluster in late August. Tony performed very efficiently and never missed a beat on distributing armbands, marking his own stewards’ book and getting dogs into the ring. A good ring steward can truly make the day for the judge who is then free to focus on the most important part of the show-the challenge of evaluating breeding stock. Ring stewards work as hard as -or harder than- judges and need to be more appreciated by the fancy. In addition to the aforementioned relaxing Two Cities Kennel Club shows, it is important to recognize the things that make that weekend so inviting. There is free day of show parking with plenty of shaded grooming areas spread out all over the grounds. Club personnel seem more like good neighbors than officials. Free ice cream sundaes are served at group time conveniently

right near the group ring. A loaded baked potato with the works (including optional chili) is available for $3.00 (yes that’s right) along with an additional menu offered by the Culinary Department of Yuba College at reasonable prices. The school’s chefs-in-training also prepare the judges’ lunches. A marvelous raffle with proceeds donated to the local Yuba County sheriff’s K9 buddies for protective vests is staged by delightful ladies who also sell recycled books for 50 cents. And each day starts with local artists providing the national anthem. The Marysville Charter School Choir stole everyone’s hearts with their stirring rendition of One Family that followed their inspiring StarSpangled Banner.

T

he One Family concept is an important one for us to keep in mind. If the dog fancy and its many talented people could truly become One Family, the breeding and exhibiting of purebred dogs would be preserved for posterity. Ralph Price and his team are striving to create a Pan-Pacific Junior Institute to introduce youngsters to the many facets of the dog show operations. With Golden Gate Kennel Club (the last of the benched shows) as a target location, this could become the start of something big. Meanwhile, we invite the entire fancy to put on their collective thinking caps to figure ways to create a dynamic younger generation of dog people. Your ideas are welcomed by this writer, and we would love to share them with the rest of the dog show world.

Montgomery Round-Up PART TWO

Scottish Terriers

by Barbara (Lounsbury) Anderson

S

cotties made their first ring appearance of the long weekend at Hatboro I under terrier expert Mareth Kipp. There were only three puppy dogs in the 9-12 class, but that didn’t stop Ceildh’s Quest Mor Of The Royal Dragoons, who not only captured the blue, but went on to take Winners Dog. He is owned by breeder Tambre Knox. Reserve went to the Bred By dog Fireheart’s Thorns N’ Roses, owned by Sally Fischel & Marianne Melucci. Winners Bitch and Best of Winners, from the Open Bitch class, was Hillview On Top Of The World, owned by longtime breeder/ exhibitor Janet Bartholomew, with reserve to Flippix Jazz Madam, owned by Heidi Turku Kainulainen. Apologies in advance if I flub any owners’ names – there are a number of discrepancies between the results posted on superintendent Rau’s website, and the Sunday catalog. No surprise when Best of Breed went to the top-winning bitch GCH McVan’s To Russia With Love who has been piloted to a very successful career by handler and Scottie breeder Rebecca Cross. She is owned by Marina Khenkina. Best Opposite was GCH Dynasty’s BR Donald Rockfeller, owned by Danica Burge. Hatboro has long given Awards of Merit, the number dependent upon the size of the entry. Mrs. Kipp gave four: CH Kelwyn’s Heav-

enly Thunderbolt owned by Kelli Edell, GCH Whiskybae Lochraven Lollypop owned by Carla LaCoe, GCH Kenwyn’s GM Freestyle Flyer, also owned by the Edells, and CH Peabar Goodness Gracious owned by Scottie breeder and former pro handler Peggy Browne. Select Dog went to GCH Marcowy Kocur Koncept, a Polish import owned by Al Jennings. Unfortunately, there was no Select Bitch listed on the Rau website. I’ve said this before, but there is no comparison between the Rau and the MB-F sites. The Rau site is difficult to navigate, lists only partial results, and is often incorrect. In this day and age when everyone gets their information online (no more hunching over the super’s table looking at tear sheets) there isn’t much excuse for an inferior website. Folks at Rau, please take note, and apologies to the owner of the Select Bitch. Charhill Kennel’s Kari Hill did the honors on Friday. She is the daughter of STCA President Charla Hill and so was literally

born into the breed. Her WD also came from the 9-12 class, but this time it was McCarver’s Man On The Moon owned by Carmen Thompson, with Reserve to Royal Dragoon Captain Colin Campbell owned by Daniel & April Green. Winners Bitch went to Flippix Jazz Madam who was RB on the previous day, and she ultimately topped the class entry by going BOW. Reserve went to Invercrest Gotcha Girl owned by John & Daphne Eggert. There was a new BOB winner this day, CH Roundtown Everyday Magic Of Maryscot, owned by Amelia Musser, as was her mother, the famous “Sadie,” who was also handled by Gabriel Rangel. Best Opposite was Donald Rockfeller, with Select Dog going to CH Morningstar Bourbon St. Chieftan owned by Donna Morganstern. Select Bitch was CH Eroglen’s Applause owned by Sharon Ero. There were four AOMs awarded by Ms. Hill, with the first going to Janet Bartholonew’s Hillview On Top Of The World, who appears to be a move up from the previous day. Kelwyn’s Heavenly Thunderbolt captured the second one, with the third going to kennelmate Kelwyn ‘s GM Freestyle Flyer. What a great two days for Kelli and David Edell!


The remaining AOM went to Lori & John Kelly’s CH Blueberry’s Terra Nova. There was a Barn Hunt demo on Friday on the Hatboro site, and it appeared to be well attended by a group terrier folk looking for another performance event suited to their breed. Many Scotties participate in Agility and Earthdog, so Barn Hunting provides another opportunity to demonstrate that our breed can still do what it was meant to do. It was great to see my old friend Bob Black once again running the show, ably assisted by his talented team of Hatboro Dog Club members and partner Robert. Bob is stepping down as Show Chair this year due to health issues. No word on who might succeed him, although there are several names being chatted up. Devon morning was a rainy one, prompting my travelling companion Geoff Corish and me to toss around the idea of passing on the drive to Ludwig’s Corners in favor of a good day at the mall. In the end, we did what all dog show addicts do and made the drive west to the show site. The gods were smiling on show chair Mike Greenberg (another who has had some difficult health issues during the past year) as the weather cleared by late morning and the grounds were manageable. Melinda Lyon did the breed, and found her Winners Dog and Best of Winners in Ceilidh’s Quest Mor of the Royal Dragoons for his second major of the weekend. Reserve went to Fireheart’s Thorns N’ Roses. Winners Bitch was again Flippix Jazz Madam – another winner owned by Kelli Edell! – with Reserve to a new player, Midsmith’s Heart Of Devotion owned by Mary Smith from the Bred By class. BOB again went to Sadie’s daughter GCH Roundtown Everyday Magic of Maryscot with BOS to Donald Rockfeller. Select Dog was CH Burberry’s Murdoch Mystery owned by Mary Smith, with Select Bitch to Peabar Goodness Gracious. Listed as winning Awards of Merit are CH Morningstar Bourbon St Chieftan and Kelwyn’s GM Freestyle Flyer. Montgomery weekend is also the occasion for Puppy and Veteran Sweepstakes, Agility, and Obedience competitions. Longtime breeder/exhibitor Sue Finn found her best Veteran in Sweeps in GCH Charthill Masterpiece owned by Jeannette Neider & Rodd Ott bred by STCA President Charla Hill, with Best Puppy in Sweeps going to Wild Wind Gladiator owned by Marilyn, Edwin and Kimberly Lindsay.

The big day, of course, is Sunday, when the STCA holds its national specialty at Montgomery. This year’s judge was longtime breeder/ exhibitor and now judge Kathi Brown. She started on her entry of 101 Scotties in our usual ring tucked away in the southeast corner of the grounds, and found her Winners Dog in a new player, Invercrest Derring Do, owned by John & Daphne Eggert in the 12-15 month class. Reserve came from this class as well, going to Gyver Original Sin owned by Karen Prokopetz and Catherine McMillan. The Eggerts must have been over the moon when Derring Do bested all of the dog specials to take the Best Opposite spot as well! Winner of the 5-point major in bitches came from the Open class, Whiskybae Haslemere Havannah owned by Carla LaCoe & Jeanice Barton. She subsequently went BOW. Chyscott’s Whisper In The Dark took the Reserve spot. She is owned by the Chyscot Kennels’ Shafer/ Simmons clan. Donald Rockfeller got five grand champion points by going Select Dog, with the same going to the Select Bitch Freestyle Flyer. With singleton entries in Veteran Dog and Veteran Bitch, the blue went to CH Glen Clark Owen Of Moir owned by Richard Bumstead, and CH Carthill Orient Express owned by Lisa Hills. With top Scots passing the Best of Breed wins back and forth, on this day it went to GCH McVan’s To Russia With Love. BOS was, as previously mentioned, the Winners Dog. Ms. Brown gave seven Awards of Merit by my count. In no particular order, they include previous winners Hillview On Top Of The World, Whiskybae Lochraven Lollypop and Peabar Goodness Gracious. New to the winners’ circle were GCH Rose’s Wild Wind Heavenscent owned by the Lindsays and CH Greatscot’s Last Call owned by Cheryl Matthews & Nancy Walthers. CH Anstamm Benscot Vamp Of Savannah owned by Anstamm and Elizabeth Hernandez also captured an AOM as did CH

Fireheat’s Over The Rainbow. She is owned by Susan & Michael Sacchetti and Marianne & John Melucci. Marianne topped an owner/handler entry of 44 to put her through to the Owner/Handler series group. Marianne looked overjoyed when David Kirkland gave her the top spot in Group competition, which, because Montgomery is an allbreed show, also gave her Best Owner/Handler in Show! The lovely girl known as “The Russian bitch” made a very good showing in the Best In Show ring and many of us were surprised that she did not, at the very least, make the shortlist. While the National Owner Handler Series is not my favorite idea, and the fact that it’s mandated that show-giving clubs offer it if they want to hold any other non-regular competitions is absurd. However, it is truly gratifying to see that, on this most competitive weekend, there were 44 Scottie exhibitors listed in the catalog as being eligible for this competition. I’ve watched as more and more handlers have made their way into the Scottie ring at specialties, including Montgomery. I surely don’t begrudge them the business – in fact, some of my best friends are handlers! It’s encouraging, however, to see that nearly four dozen Scottie owners are still walking into the ring with their own dogs. Congratulations to all. It was with great sadness that we received the news that Buffy Stamm, legendary founder (with late husband Tony) of Anstamm Kennels, passed away just after her dear friend and Anstamm partner Cindy Cooke returned home to Michigan. Buffy had suffered ill health for some time. Cindy was telling her about the activities of the weekend when Buffy quietly passed away in her sleep. She was an iconic breeder/exhibitor whose legacy will forever live in the hearts of those who love the breed. It was an honor to have known her. Rest well, Buffy. Continued FROM page 86

Continued from page 18

seeing who the handler was when I first realized it was HIM! The following year I won more with him in the UK than any other WFT I had ever owned and to me that was a lesson in Patience! The reason I keep babbling about this is simply to illustrate that when you live with an animal permanently you don’t always notice those little changes that might happen from day to day. So it might be very useful from time to time to take a step back and just take another look. Changing subject: A comment from a fellow judge with whom I was ringside about the judge’s decision. Something like that “we are judging dogs to evaluate breeding stock…” This really surprised me, as if you ever attended a judging seminar in the Scandinavian countries you were always told: You are not judging a dog’s reproduction potential! You are not a psychic, so your job is to evaluate the result! Makes sense to me, but if anyone is of a different opinion, please let me know.

And returning to the group finals as well as breed judging at Montgomery: Only a couple of dogs brought into the center of the ring actually looked at each other. Several looked away and put their ears back. But the ones that really did what was expected certainly looked good. I was myself involved in sparring in a class. Three of us. The only one using her ears and looking at the other dogs was actually mine. But placed third, probably justifiably so. The judge must actually agree with my argument that the picture created by sparring does not necessarily affect the placings…?? The World would have been a

size should be approachable be it on the floor or on the table. A recent comment was: The AKC preaches that when judging YOU are in charge of your ring and decide yourself which dogs to put up. Why will then one of those Field Reps have the authority to question your procedure or your placings? I must admit that I initially thought the system with Field Reps was weird. Coming from a world where if anything happens at a show the only person to complain to is the secretary who will instruct you how to lodge a formal complaint to the KC including a fee. I believe a good thing over here is that you can deal with conflicts and get it over with on the day! Regarding those Field Reps: When I judged over here for the first time I was introduced to a Mrs. Connie Barton who guided me through the rules and regulations that were specifically American, which I found very helpful. But was surprised when told that she would also “judge” my judging as well as procedure. I remember being slightly annoyed: Why bring me over here to get my opinion about my own breed and then let me have to justify my opinion to a non breed expert??? Well, I must have passed as no questions were asked and as time has gone and I live here those Reps have helped me a lot at times- and the ones who have actually interviewed me during the new breeds application process have all been very impressive and well prepared to come up with some rather complicated and tricky questions. No, no- you’re wrong- I am not trying to flatter them for a reason, as I don’t see myself applying for more breeds in the foreseeable future… So that so!

BAbbling

IS THERE A RIGHT OR WRONG...?

And of course I have to return to the subject of “Sparring”! I suppose it is in no way influenced by my article on the subject some time ago, but since then whenever I have opened a Newsletter or any terrier related publication people have screamed out in support of that procedure. My friend Ric Chashoudian was of course the ultimate showman and the greatest promoter of sparring as standard procedure in the terrier ring- and I agree that it is a wonderful way to watch expression and attitude as part of the show. As long as the handlers know what to do. But I will forever argue that a terrier entering the ring alone as though he is bursting with confidence and self belief is the most beautiful sight of all. Those of you who watched the Kerry Scarf Michael and the Wire Excellence in action will know exactly what I mean.

boring place if we all agreed all the time. Another Hot Topic during the mentioned week was judging procedure. Is it at all possible to judge a breed where topline is of prime importance judging without ever watching the dogs from the side?? It is obvious that those of us coming from other countries (yes, Mr. Bruce Schwartz, I am an immigrant!!!) have been told what is the correct procedure, but then entering the USA there are many rules and regulations not seen elsewhere. But of course watching the dog down and back directly towards the judge -and then round the ring is standard everywhere. What has caused a few tense moments over the years and even at this year’s show is the rule that if a table dog is reexamined it has to be back on the table. I understand why, but many of those other Europeans think this rule is absurd as any dog of any

The Week That Was...

And

M re by Matthew H. Stander

T

his past week was certainly a busy one for followers of AKC, as the reverberations from the October Board Meeting resounded loudly among the Board followers particularly in the case of the newly proposed revised judges approval processes ostensibly approved by a majority on the Board. HOWEVER, no vote was released as to how the Board voted in the Board Minutes released today, October 28. This leads me to believe that while NEVER stated the vote took place and the topic discussed in EXECUTIVE SESSION. There was if you notice in the Minutes a general reference to a series of Executive Sessions held by the Board during the two-day meeting without designating which of the topics were held in that session nor how long they were. This is a unique and unusual method of handling those executive session procedures. As most of you are aware nothing discussed in executive session may be made public, no votes released and no public notes released either. In the past though these Board Minutes usually delineated what topics were held in that manner and even occasionally announced who was in attendance and the length of them. This was not done at all in the October Minutes perhaps due to the number and length of sessions and which participants were invited or not. The FIRST RED FLAG for me that the newly proposed revised judges approval was in executive session was when immediately after stating that a majority had approved without giving the vote a VOTE WAS recorded showing a 12 to one majority to distribute a survey to the Fancy getting its input within 21 days of what people thought of the proposal. Garvin was understandably the one nay vote. This 24-page survey which the Fancy has 21 days to answer is a long document asking for input from some people who may have little or no background in the judging community but which will require an awful lot of input from those answering it. A cur-

sory reading--it will take me days to really understand it if I ever do or quite frankly even care to—indicated that the proposal bends toward the old Welsh-Strand philosophy of 60 stars of light thinking rather than the essence of the breed philosophy of the SmithBivin people! Give me the essence of the breed thinking any day of the week, for sure. Who will read these answers and collate them into some form of understandable data and how this data will affect the votes of the unnamed Board Members’ votes of the past is unknown but it already has received reactions such as a mere publicity stunt, a great idea and oh no here we go again. I was somewhat surprised the survey letter came from Alan Kalter and not the Board as a whole or even the Judges Department. Oh well, more to come on this subject that’s a certainty. For sure the Budget part of the Meeting took place in Executive Session although once again the Minutes are silent on the point! I just cannot imagine what caused Jim Crowley and or the Board or whomever was responsible for this form of presentation to not specifically designate what was and what was not in Executive Session. I did call Jim to ask him what the rationale was for this kind of presentation and he found nothing unusual in it. Then I guess we have to discount the last 30 or 40 years of presenting this kind of information in past Minutes. As for the Board Budget for 2015 Mr. Farnsworth’s apparent presumption that another registration hike would not result in a reduction of income

for AKC was food for the rumor mill way before it was formally presented from what I have heard. Overall the entire 2015 budget was receiving less than favorable prereview reactions from most on the Board and so while quite unusual approval of 2015 was put off until December in Orlando. What will be introduced then just as it was now will remain confidential but let’s hope someone has the good sense to anticipate valid and worthwhile questions from the Board. In Executive Session or out of it. Normally and automatically those who attend Executive Sessions are the 13 Board Members and certain people on Staff such as the President for sure who attends all of these Meetings except for those which may affect him financially personally or on that rare occasion when he/she is not invited in. This was explained to me by the established guru at AKC Jim Crowley, who understands and interprets these situations more accurately than anyone I know and which is the reason I go to him for any questions I have about rules, regs and the like. Perhaps more Board Members should do the same. On occasion Jim and Gina are invited into these Meetings and are subject to the same high degree of restriction as the Board Members are as well. Staff Members for sure can be invited in when dealing with special projects. Again and unfortunately as in other Executive Sessions held in October the Marketing Manager is said to have been invited in a somewhat shortened session. I have had the impression that there

have been too many executive sessions which have been absolutely too lengthy in time called in the Kalter meetings of late. This is strictly a gut feel on my part with which I know Crowley does not necessarily agree with but since the number called and the length of them are rarely given I do think that based on other former employee reactions my gut feel is a sustainable and unfortunately correct one.

W

e attended a small specialty show for Bostons this past weekend--four shows in two days!!! Total entry each day no more than 50 with majors all over the place. The venue was spiffy and used by other breeds I am told and was quite enjoyable. I only stayed for one of the four shows since a friend was the adjudicator and we stayed with other friends who lived nearby and had a nice dinner with other breeders and exhibitors. This was a nice break from the traumas and happenings of some of the larger and more visible shows we have been attending for the last several months. Still do not understand the need for four sets of shows when two would nicely suffice but never will I suppose. The unhappy news that good friend Bob Goodin, husband of the late Judith, had passed away reached our office yesterday. Bob had been ill for a while and never truly did get over Judy’s death. They were a lovely couple who contributed mightily to the good name of the world of the American Show Dog and will be missed for sure.

The Chesapeake is a versatile breed and the activities offered reflect this diversity. On Tuesday Redding Farm in Gettysburg, Pa kicked off the week- long events with a tracking test. 7 tracks (4 TD & 3 TDX) were laid. Two new tracking titles were earned by Pond Hollow Bay of Calais VCD1 BN AX AXJ NF (TDX) Jan Estes; GCh Eastern Waters Nuka Bay Kachemak BN RE NAJ (TD) Lynda Barber-Wiltse. On Wednesday, the activity switched to Lewisberry, Pa & the Bella Vista Training Center for an all-breed Agility Trial offered by the ACC. With an early opening for Chesapeake entries, 28 participated with entries in all levels. Thursday the action switched to the Host Hotel in Lancaster. Obedience and Rally were on center stage with 55 participating. Ever popular obedience judges Frank Washa-

baugh & Mrs. M.E. “Betsy” Baird put the dogs through their routines. Highlight of the Obedience is the costumed Team Competition. Once again it lived up to its reputation for entertainment. The Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs team had the best costumes but first prize went to the Team of Estes/ Silver/Grant & Johnson. High in Trial was Pond Hollow Penikese CD 196.5 in Open B owned and handled by Bill Lane. There was also testing offered for CDC and Therapy Dog titles by Joanne Silver, which was well attended. Thursday evening two seminars were offered by the club for free. A breeders’ seminar “How Well Do You Know the

Standard” with focus on understanding the disqualifications by the ACC Judges & Breeder Education Committee. A discussion on ethics and breeding for quality was headed by Jane Pappler (Redlion) & Meghan Conner Timmerman (Fitzhugh). The ACC Health Committee sponsored a seminar by Dr. Chris Zink- “The Chesapeake Bay Retriever-Conformation and Beyond”. Topics included the negative effect of early spay and neutering; the usefulness of front dewclaws in performance; and recent research on how to improve performance while keeping your dog healthy. Both seminars were well attended. Friday morning the conformation judging began in the Expo Center of the Host facilities. Diane Baker (Sandbar), profes-

Growth of a Judge Continued FROM page 48

“head hunter,” or even one that only puts up certain colors. Sometimes an exhibitor or handler who did not win will think or say, “I guess my dog is too fancy,” (replace with the word of your choice: pretty, big, small, angulated, etc). In fact, none of this may be true as the judge can only put up what is in front of her. But these reputations may determine what dogs are shown to her in the future. So it becomes a vicious circle. Many new judges are determined that soundness is a requirement for their winners. We all start out to be breed saviors. Then the true education of a judge begins. Probably because I am old, I have had many newer judges talk to me about judging. I tell them that I understand what they are going through. Been there - done that - have the tee shirt. When I started, I knew that poor movement was an issue in my breed, and I was determined to find a sound dog. However, I also knew that my breed is a combination of elegance, balance, and substance. After a few assignments I realized that I had choices and compromises to make. Do I put up a sound dog that does not have the essence of the breed, or do I put up a pretty dog that needs help to get across the ring? 82 Dog News

A judge is faced with this every time she steps into the ring. I learned over time - that we are not judging perfection - we are judging reality. Everything is a trade-off. We all have to decide what is most important to us for each breed we judge. For me there are certain essences of each breed that cannot be ignored or dismissed. Once we have found this, then we can start looking at which dog has proper reach, depth of chest, etc. But the essence of the breed is paramount. It takes some judges longer to learn and accept this than others. Some never get past this point. Judges learn to judge by judging. Unfortunately it is difficult for a new judge with just a few breeds to get enough assignments to stay in a rhythm, and they can wither away. She gets frustrated. In order to “stay in the game,” and keep her “judging eye” the new judge accepts as many sweepstakes and match show assignments that she can. This does help, but only if there is a good mentor there to help her by honestly discussing her procedure and selections. The “newbie” has to be open for this feedback. If she is not, all this practice will do is lock in some very bad habits. I do believe that there are a few lucky people who “have the eye.” But even these have to learn how to run a ring smoothly, safely, and on time. Judges need to learn the rules; when and if to award Select, AOM, when to

withhold, when and how to DQ. All judges should learn how to maintain a proper demeanor and be firm but friendly with the exhibitors. Another thing that takes some experience is learning to judge the whole dog and not pieces. This is a point that cannot be over-emphasized. It is very much like learning to judge the positive attributes rather than fault-judge. Every judge has to learn what things can be overlooked, and what things cannot. There is a time to draw the line, and each judge must learn this for themselves. Unfortunately, new judges don’t get enough opportunities, and their education is stunted. It takes time and experience to remain calm, stay on time, run a smooth ring - and find the best dogs. Over time a judge will learn how to prioritize breed characteristics, and how to determine which ones just can’t be overlooked. If what is important to a judge is breed essence, the judge may wind up being pretty good. If the judging is done based on fads, grooming, and handling well - that is sad. Those who want to be a good judge for the right reasons continue to study, talk to breeders, and attend seminars even for breeds for which they are approved. Those who want to succeed watch good judges and how various breeds are judged. When I used to teach young wannabe handlers, I would point to Jane Forsyth, Bill Trainor, and Laddie Carswell.

“Watch them and copy everything they do, including how they dress.” New judges should do this with experienced judges that they may respect. They should sit at ringside with mentors and try to determine how and why they would have placed the class in front of them. I caution new judges about this though. I have seen and heard too many supposed mentors who have an axe to grind lead a new judge down the wrong path - usually towards the dogs that they show. These are not mentors. These people are pimps. Finally, if the new judge has survived a few years, she is approved to judge the Group. Additional learning takes place here. First of all, judging a group helps her get more assignments (although these days it may take two or more groups). Then, by having the opportunity to judge some of the better representatives of many breeds, she gains additional understanding that even the best dogs have little faults. The judge that can only see that a potentially great dog toes in a little will never really be a good judge. The one that can see and “feel” the quality represented in the group is the judge I want to judge my dogs. Those few who I respect try to learn as much as they can because they care. As an example, my wife, who will not apply to judge Toy breeds for quite a while, asked a successful Peke breeder at a recent show to teach her the correct way to examine the breed and WHY. I watched also, because although I have judged the breed in Best in Show, I am always ready to learn and improve. Those who want to just add more breeds continue to bitch about the system. I agree that the system is very definitely broken and unfair, and I have complained more than once. But that is no reason to stop learning. Just because you can send fifty pages when applying for additional breeds doesn’t mean you are ready to move on. What do you think?

LAN KALTER, Chairman of the Board of Directors, has mailed a new proposed Judges Approval Process. It is requested that one respond with any comments, suggestions, etc. within a twenty-one day period. It is a lengthy proposal comprised of four documents. For those interested in wading through twenty some odd pages, have at it. Quite frankly after the first FAQ (frequently asked questions) it was just more of the same in different words. Basically it is just getting easier to become and advance as a judge. Because according to the AKC there are too many shows and not enough judges, God forbid they address the amount of shows they approve instead of the judges they approve. But given the track record of the last few boards, change will come again and again. Who knows…you be the judge!

Glen Of Imaal Terriers BY Karen Fitzpatrick

T

his year marks the tenth anniversary of the AKC recognition of the Glen of Imaal Terrier. A great year for this breed! I have had the wonderful opportunity this past year to study them both here and abroad, talking to breeders in this country and also in England, Finland and Ireland, which is their land of origin. It’s been an interesting study. As with any breed fighting for a consistency in its type and conformation in the first few years of acceptance in a new country, there are some disagreements between breeders. There are still mixed opinions and controversy in what judges and breeders all over the world feel this breed should convey. Coming from my background of working terriers, I cannot help but delve back into history and my roots and I tend to look for a gamey, properly coated working dog bred to functionally do its all-around job. I had the good fortune to visit the UK this year and watch Glens at The National Terrier Show. I think the breed standard here in the US says a lot when they say “antique features, bowed forequarters and turned out front feet”, a pre-requisite to the look of this breed. And who cannot be entranced by the look of determination or the massive headpiece. Bred to rid the farms of fox, badger and other vermin, as well as a variety of other farm jobs, these powerful terriers are often called “a big dog on short legs” and as per the breed standard should always convey an impression of maximum substance for size. I got accustomed to looking at tails, both here and abroad. I have no preference, as with many breeds, it’s just a cosmetic feature. In August I traveled to Finland and watched the Glen Specialty in Helsinki and then two days later, was fortunate enough to watch the Glens at the World Show. The wide variety of types of Glens is not confined to the US, but seems to be a global issue. Both breeders and judges have differing views of what the Glen of Imaal Terrier should look like. But then this is common

in many newer terrier breeds. The Russell Terrier and the Parson Russell Terrier went through their growth phase, but I think they have been coming together the past few years. The Glen people all want a terrier that can move, and honestly, what terrier shouldn’t move well? I have seen a variety of toplines; Dandie toplines, level toplines, and the correct Glen topline, slightly rising with no drop off at croup. Around the rings are examples of Glens up on leg, low on leg, correct length of leg. There are Glens too long in back, too short in back, or adequate length of back, which when in balance should give a dog roughly 3x5 proportions as is written. All can agree that soft linty coats, with no harshness, lack of undercoat or topcoat is undesirable. A good coarse coat with adequate undercoat and proper length, whether wheaten or blue brindle, the coat should be a proper terrier coat and made to withstand the weather they were bred to work in. Grooming is extremely variable with over groomed and under groomed, blown dry and shaped, or taken from the field with little care of presentation, where is the happy medium? The debate continues. This certainly is not a showy dog, nor should it be, but it should move freely and correctly with determination and soundness, keeping in mind this is an achondroplastic breed (dwarf). I think the breed standard was written well and with definite explanation and one should just follow it to the best of one’s understanding, and not interpret more into it than what it says nor changing the standard to what one breeds.

“Bred to rid the farms of fox, badger and other vermin, as well as a variety of other farm jobs, these powerful terriers are often called “a big dog on short legs” and as per the breed standard should always convey an impression of maximum substance for size.”

Hatboro: Day one of Hatboro was a glorious fall day, the weather was fantastic. Our judge was Ms. Pia Lundberg, coming to us from Sweden. Ms. Lundberg has been judging the terrier group in Sweden since 1990, Glens included, her own original breed being Airedales. She told me after judging that this was her biggest entry to date of Glens (29), and she felt that type was very mixed but found some outstanding Glens in the mix that she felt represented what a Glen of Imaal should be. Winners Dog was BerD-Mar’s Bold Boy Fionnlagh. Owned by B. Daly & W. Roland and bred by W. & R. Roland & W Dietrich. Winners Bitch and Best of Winners was his lovely litter sister, Ber-D-Mar’s My Dream of You Aoife. Well done to the Rolands and Dietrich for breeding 2 outstanding pups with consistent type! Lucky owner, Betsy Daly! Kudos to the judge for being so consistent! Best of Breed went to the beautiful blue brindle Irish import, CH Abberann’s Torcan. A stallion of a dog just coming into the show scene, owned and imported from Ireland by Dr. Theresa Nesbitt and bred by Ann and Nick White of Greystones, Ireland. A huge congrats to the team! Best of Opposite went to the lovely veteran, GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green, owned by Michael and Connie Greene and bred by C. Cleary and J Daulton. Select dog went to GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned and Select Bitch went to GCH Emerald Isle’s Keely With Daulton. Day 2 of Hatboro welcomed us with another stellar day of sunshine. Our judge for the day was Ms. Claudia J. Seaberg of Franklin, TN. A well-re-


spected judge, Ms. Seaberg has been judging Glen of Imaals since 2011. What an opportunity to judge such a great entry of Glens! Winners Dog and Best of Winners went to the lovely 6-9 month old puppy, Finnabair South of the Border, owned and bred by Mary McDaniel, DVM. Winner’s Bitch went to another puppy from the 9-12 month old class, Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life. Bred by M. McDaniel and D. Allegro and owned by Mr. Thomas Tucker. Well Done!! Best of Breed went to the #1 Glen of Imaal here in the United States, GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned, a lovely moving wheaten dog bred by Mary McDaniel, DVM and owned by Donal and Ann Doyle. Congrats to the team on a stellar win! Best of Opposite went to GCH Finnabair Song O’My Heart. Owned and bred by M. McDaniel, DVM. Select Dog went to the Irish import, CH Abberann Torcan and Select Bitch went to GCH Emerald Isle’s Keely with Daulton. Award of Merits were given today and those deserving recipients were Irish import, GCH Abberann Abaigael, GCH Liberty’s Darren of Daulton and GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green. Day 3 arrived with the threat of rain; with drizzle early, all was not lost! By the time the Glens entered the ring it was fabulous. The sun came out, the grass was dry and all was superb! Our judge for Devon, my favorite show day of the cluster, (simply because of the stellar vendors!) was Mr. Rodney E. Herner of Bechtelsville, PA. Very well versed in the judging of Glens, having judged Glens 45 times since 2009, we were thrilled to have him take the assignment as our judge for Devon. Mr. Herner chose for his Winners Dog, BerD-Mar’s Fergus McCarthy. Owned by N & L Gardner, bred by Wanda and Rick Roland and Wendy Dietrich. Winners Bitch and Best Of Winners was Ber-DMar’s Charm One of Wicklow. A lovely bitch owned and bred by Wanda and Rick Roland. A big congrats to the Rolands, their breeding program is on the move! Best Of Breed again went

to the stunning Irish import, CH Abberann’s Torcan. Bred by Ann and Nick White of Greystones, Ireland and owned by Dr. Theresa Nesbitt. A huge congrats to Dr. Nesbitt, she has worked hard to get this boy and it is paying off! Best of Opposite was a bitch with lovely breed type, GCH Emerald Isle’s Keely With Daulton. Bred by A. Pember and J. Daulton and owned by T & S Thomas, J Daulton and PJ Estes. Select Dog was awarded to GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklow’s Warrior of Ber-D-Mars. Owned by W & R Roland & M Carty. Bred by M. Carty. Select Bitch was CH Daulton’s Rosalee. Owed by V and A Purcell and bred by J Daulton and PJ Estes.

Taking charge for the assignment of judging the National Specialty was Mr. Robert D Black, from Newtown, PA a wellrespected terrier judge, going back to judging Glens since 2006. We were thrilled to have him judge the 10th anniversary Glen specialty! Weather dry, but cold as

heck early in the AM! But one can’t complain as we had great weather for the past few days. I can remember many a MCKC where we either froze or were sweltering. It was truly terrier weather this year, crisp, dry and all were on their toes! Mr. Black sorted through the great entry to find his Winners Dog in the up and coming Ber-D-Mar’s Bold Boy Fionnlagh. Owned by Betsy Daly and Wanda Roland, bred by Wanda Roland & Richard Roland & Wendy Dietrich. A huge congrats to the owners and breeders on a super young dog!

times between the laying of the trail and when the hound will work it. A Mantrailer Excellent trail is set a full 24 – 36 hours in advance. There were 14 Mantrailing entries, 11 of those being at the MT level. Of those, five of the hounds titled. One MTX was achieved: Cheryl Cromeenes’ hound “Jersey” expertly worked through the complicated trail without fault. Also, one new MTI title was earned, as were three new MTs. The Trailing judges were Pat Moffit, Jan Rothwell, Janet Kelly, and Suzi Paine. Three bloodhounds earned their TD titles at the independent Tracking Trial, including an eleven-yearold owned by our hardworking Show Chair, Amanda! Meanwhile, the Hospitality room and Boutique were being set up in the main building. These two rooms quickly became major gathering places where attendees could view photo contest entries, make use of the three-flavor margarita machine, or indulge their desire for various pieces of bloodhound-related crafts or clothing to take home. Pam Herranz and Judy Walker were both like whirlwinds and it was evident how much time and thought had gone into the planning of these areas. Wednesday started early with six Obedience entries and eight more for Rally. Judge Mr. Alvin W. Eng was charming to show to. He seemed delighted to have several of the hounds do very well and genuinely disappointed when others lost focus or their handlers lost points for the dog. There were two Obedience qualifiers and six hounds earned legs in Rally as well, including 11-year-old “Jasper”. This wonderful Veteran has achieved multiple working titles, including his TD the day before. Following Obedience, our own Suzi Paine judged 16 Futurity entries. An AKC-approved judge for several hound breeds, Suzi clearly enjoyed the puppies and made short work of 90 Dog News

finding her Grand Futurity Winner, “Mongo.” Hickory Hollow’s Candygram for Mongo, a 13-monthold dog bred by Don and Cindy Ozee and Chris Flessner and owned by Bryan and Chris Flessner and Heather Helmer, was expertly handled by Heather. Speaking of handling, we also saw Chris Flessner quickly vie for (and eventually win!) the Abused Handler Award while she tried to gain control of one of her rodeo-themed puppies. However, Chris fell way short of the previous winner, Sherry Duling, who had performed a cartwheel over the ring barrier last year in Topeka. One fun “non-regular” event was the Itty Bitty Puppy Match, a delightful gathering of tomorrow’s stars too young to even have a clue of what was going on. Although I could not be there I understood that trying to put cowboy hats on the puppies was perhaps the highlight of the match! The Top 20 Event was scheduled for Wednesday evening. Our twenty highest ranking hounds based on breed points were featured in a lovely catalog and well over a dozen of them were actually present to compete. One by one they were examined and gaited for the panel of three judges: Betty-

Anne Stenmark, AKC judge; Mike Stone, handler; and Sherry Duling, breeder. The audience enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails during these evaluations but had to wait until the Annual Banquet two days later to be advised of the winner. Thursday morning brought another beautiful California day! The several judges who attended the Judges Education presentation were treated to a short demonstration of bloodhound mantrailing after the seminar. The “form follows function” message that we convey in our PowerPoint was perfectly demonstrated by GCH JoLi’s Searching for Oz, MTI, handled by Becky Irving. “Clara” exhibited tremendous drive as she followed her trail on the run and identified the runner at the end with no questions. She had earned her Mantrailer Intermediate title just two days earlier. The American Bloodhound Club is proud of the many show champion bloodhounds that also hold Mantrailing titles! The Sweepstakes classes were underway by the time our visiting judges got to the ring for mentoring. Twenty-two youngsters were exhibited to Sweeps Judge Mr. Michael McGuire, who selected the Futurity winner as his Grand Sweepstakes Winner. Then came the hankies as the beautiful, proud Veterans strutted their stuff. It was clear how much most of them enjoyed being back in the ring. Each


Westward Ho!- For Bloodhounds of these hounds was a winner! Best Veteran Dog went to Lyn Sherman’s “Yeager”, GCH Heathers Where Eagles Dare, and Best Veteran Bitch was CH Quiet Creek’s Windsong, “Stella Mae“, owned by Lori Burch and Susan Hamil. Dr. Jim Edwards traveled from Danbury, NC, to adjudicate the breed. He kindly took a few minutes to add to our Judges Education by commenting on what traits he would be prioritizing and why. Then he began judging – and enjoying – his entry of 78 hounds. The ring was positioned on a stretch of grass between two rows of columnar arborvitae trees on what was perhaps the original assembly grounds for the Air Force base. This was a magnificent location for our National. Dr. Edwards has been a long-time member of the American Bloodhound Club, holding positions on the Board, editing the Bulletin for five years, and serving as club Delegate to the AKC for close to a decade. He has received the meritorious Service Award and holds Honorary membership in the Club. We were honored to have him with us now. Winners Dog made it three in a row for Grand Futurity and Grand Sweeps winner “Mongo”, from the 12-18 month class, who finished his championship to boot. Reserve WD was “Herkie”, Acadian’s Shay Trace Trail of Slo-Poke, from the Open class, owned by Marv and Alice Schnepel and bred by Carla Blanchard and Jan Day. Winners Bitch went to Flessner’s Rock’Em Don’t Knock’Em, “Buckles”, and RWB went to “Belle”, Hickory Hollow’s Rustlin Starr, a litter sister of the WD. Veteran Dog and Veteran Bitch were awarded to the Veteran Sweeps winners.

Following a break for an al fresco lunch of tasty smoked brisket, Dr. Edwards began to sort through the dog and bitch specials. His eventual winners were as follows: • BOB: GCH Flessner’s International S’Cess “Nathan” Owners: Susan Carter, Shirley Van Camp, Heather Helmer • BOW: Flessner’s Rock’Em Don’t Knock’Em “Buckles“ Owners: Bryan and Chris Flessner • BOS: GCH Quiet Creek’s Kiss and Tell “Kiss” Owners: Susan LaCroix Hamil and Heather Whitcomb • SD: GCH Quiet Creek’s Double Take “Wendell“ Owners: Lori Burch, Susan Hamil, Evelyn Jones • SB: GCH Quiet Creek’s Double Or Nothing for Heather “Roulette” Owners: Heather Whitcomb, Susan LaCroix Hamil • AOMs: GCH Heathers Where Eagles Dare CH Quiet Creek’s Windsong GCH Quiet Creek’s Limited Edition GCH Ripple Creek’s Wind in the Willows of Houndwalkers CH M&M’s The Alamosa Kid Has a Price on his Head GCH Badgershill Muldoon of Heather That evening saw the ABC Annual Meeting and Banquet. While the business of the Club was dispatched with fairly quickly, the rowdiness and fun went on for a lot longer. Awards were handed out, our judge made comments, emphasizing what a terrific bunch of people had

contributed to the National, and we found out that “Nathan” had been selected Top 20 Winner for the second consecutive year. Barry Welsh auctioned off numerous items and the tables were groaning with raffle baskets. Steve Aguirre (“the man in the yellow jacket”) made sure the auction was successful by bidding on everything. The highlight of the auction was the gold and tanzanite pendant, made in the likeness of our ABC bloodhound head logo from member-donated gold and stones. Enough gold had been donated to make a pair of earrings as well. These items brought in close to $3500 toward the National expenses alone! The following day Charlie Olvis judged the Southwest Regional Specialty. Entries were down by only five. It was impressive how well the hounds held up to the sudden heatwave, up into the nineties. Winners Dog was M&M’s Lonestar Salute to London, bred by Michael & Molly Nye, and owned by Johnny & Sandy Britton and Molly Nye. Hickory Hollow’s Queen of the Outlaws went Winners Bitch. She was bred by Don & Cindy Ozee and Chris Flessner, is owned by Judy McDonald, and is a litter sister to the RWB and WD at the National. Judge Olvis selected “Nathan” for BOB and found GCH Pine Hollow’s Watch for Ice (“Harriet“) from the Veteran Class for BOS. This beautiful red girl, owned by Myron Robb and Suzi Paine, was a real crowd favorite and never let down for a minute! Awards of Merit went to GCH M&M’s Price of Freedom, GCH Soonipi Friends in Low Places MLH, and GCH Ripple Creek’s Wind in the Willows of Houndwalkers. There were too many contributions by too many people to name them all in this article. I know the smoker for the yummy brisket traveled all the way from Kentucky. I know I wanted to clone the fabulous grounds crew for always being there with what was needed. The incredible rosettes were all made by a club member. The list of workers was endless and shows what can be accomplished with determination and teamwork. So many folks had a hand in making this show a winner! Hugs and good-byes as people dispersed. Next year: “Howl-oween” in Ohio. Dog News 91

AKC’S New PROPOSED JUDGING APPROVAL PROCESS - FEEDBACK SOUGHT The AKC Board has been evaluating a variety of possible changes to the Conformation Judging Approval Process. During our study, we received input from a variety of sources. One example involves the breed educational components, which were established based on a poll of all Parent Clubs. We now need your insightful personal comments and suggestions regarding the proposal. Attached are four documents that fully explain the proposal: an overview of the proposal, the detailed proposal, a judges education component matrix, and a Frequently Asked Questions document. Please review all the material and let us have your comments, suggestions, questions, and overall agreement or disagreement with the proposal as it stands today. Simply respond to this email at this address with your thoughts. We have established a 21-day comment period to give the necessary time for due consideration and comment. Please respond no later than Tuesday, November 18, 2014. This will allow for a careful analysis of all responses prior to the December Board meeting. Since we are requesting input from as many participants as possible, please feel free to pass this on to others. Thank you for your help and guidance in this important process. Sincerely, Alan Kalter AKC Chairman Overview of the Judging Approval Process Proposal: link: http://images.akc.org/pdf/judges/Proposal_Overview. pdf?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRolvK3NZKXonjHpfsX67%2 B0vXaGg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YcGRMN0aPyQAgobGp5I5FE NQ7jYTaxmt6QLWQ%3D%3D FAQs on the Judging Approval Process Proposal: link: http://images.akc.org/pdf/judges/Proposal_FAQs. pdf?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRolvK3NZKXonjHpfsX67%2 B0vXaGg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YcGRMN0aPyQAgobGp5I5FE NQ7jYTaxmt6QLWQ%3D%3D Judging Approval Process Proposal: link: http://images.akc.org/pdf/judges/Proposal_Policy. pdf?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRolvK3NZKXonjHpfsX67%2 B0vXaGg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YcGRMN0aPyQAgobGp5I5FE NQ7jYTaxmt6QLWQ%3D%3D Sample – Education Component Matrix: link: http://images.akc.org/pdf/judges/Proposal_Sample. pdf?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRolvK3NZKXonjHpfsX67%2 B0vXaGg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YcGRMN0aPyQAgobGp5I5FE NQ7jYTaxmt6QLWQ%3D%3D (Ed.

REACTION TO AKC’S New PROPOSED JUDGING APPROVAL PROCESS WTF!!!!! Mind blowing “new” proposal for judges approval..... SERIOUSLY??? This proposal is comical.... “Trickle Down Economics” is what this proposal wants to implement as our NEW judges approval system.... Guess what?... it is a PROVEN fact that allowing the “MARKET” to regulate itself does NOT work. The rich get richer and the poor get “homeless”!!! People is our sport, and this proposal will finish destroying what is left of dog shows..... I do believe changes must be made on the “APPROVAL” system, for that matter the whole dog show system needs to be reinvented to keep up with the new technology and real time access of this new cyber world... BUT, I‘m sure of one thing, this proposal cannot be allowed to be implemented. It comes down to a slap in the face for all that truly want this sport to

survive...I used to joke when people complained over all the insulting HOOPS most are made to jump through to get approved to judge even their own breed. My “joke” was to say “just sell the judging badges”...never though it was anything more than a JOKE! Maripi Wooldridge Mebane, NC

EMS ON-SITE AT EVERY SHOW I recently attended a National Specialty Show. I was watching the breed judging and as the judge was making her final placements a lady who was put in the final lineup appeared to have lost her balance. She was placed in a chair and when she still was unresponsive after several minutes, 911 was finally called. They arrived in a fairly timely manner and the woman was taken to the local hospital. The final outcome was not good for the family and for that, my deepest sympathies. However, it brings BACK to light the importance of having an EMS team ON-SITE at EVERY show, no matter how large or how small. Would there have been a different outcome? We will never know. And before you say, “We have a small treasury  and cannot afford one”, then FIND it - cut out the fancy place settings for tables, fresh flowers, whatever it takes. Judges, exhibitors, and spectators alike should not have to see such an incident and then be expected to continue with judging as if nothing ever happened. This is not the first tine nor will it be the last time EMS has had to be called. However, nobody should have to be at risk because medical support is unavailable.
