THE MULTIPLE SHOWS IN A DAY DEBATE Does the American Kennel Club really have to follow the path of the Canadian Kennel Club which for years has permitted Multiple all breed shows on the same day and do the same thing? These pages certainly hope not! Does an entry of 50 Sporting Dogs deserve the same type recognition as an entry of 350 Sporting Dogs with points being awarded twice in one day to boot? Does a representation of 5 terrier breeds in a Group deserve the same kind of treatment as a full compliment of say a 28 or 29 breed terrier group competition? These pages think not in those type situations either. But prior to telling you our solutions for the declining show entry situation these pages must start out with what we believe to be the primary interest of AKC and the Showing Giving Clubs and that is the welfare and well-being of the dog at these AKC public licensed events. Once that maxim is established and accepted then the economics of the situation must be entertained. Sure everyone wants the people and clubs giving the shows to be financially successful but not at the expense of the dog-that’s for sure. Do two shows on the same day raise the possibility of endangering a dog’s health-more likely than not is our reply. That’s why all the arguments made which revolve solely round economic necessities for the smaller entry show fall on deaf ears here. What about the dog is our question. Convince these pages that everything is being done to assure a healthy attitude and conditions at the shows and then perhaps we could accept some of your economic arguments. If those conditions were to be met than these pages would suggest that the entire show system in the USA be reconsidered. How about reclassifying the smaller shows? How about looking into rules which prevent the weekly flying of dogs on the same weekends? Every argument one reads in favor of the two show day starts, begins and ends about money. This is more than money--this is the welfare of our dogs. That must be our initial concern and worry about making that extra buck afterwards is exactly where these pages stand in that matter for sure. 10 Dog News

The

Editorial NOVEMBER 29, 2013

16,300 ENTRIES ANNOUNCES AKC What are we in England these pages asked themselves at the latest AKC attempt to twist entry numbers! By including the entries of the three All-Breeds and the Friday Specialties the NEWS RELEASE about the size of the entries for the AENC twist and incorporate shows which have no immediate association with the AENC other than the use of the same space. Whomever dreamt up the figure of 16,300 entries has a very vivid imagination one must think. The actual AENC numbers are nothing to sneeze at with close to 5,000 entries but to announce that more than 16,3000 entries implying this is for the AENC is just downright unacceptable. But we are sorry to say not totally unexpected. Getting any numbers out of AKC whether they be registrations or attendance figures say at Meet the Breeds is downright nearly impossible to do. So why not go to the moon and imply that which people know do not exist. An entry figure so inflated as to defy reason--the week before the AENC there are shows being held in Miami, Florida as well. Along AKC’s line of thinking these figures should be included with the AENC as well--do you think! A DEFENSE OF THE NEW JUDGING APPROVAL PROCESS In the latest STANDARD the AKC Newsletter For Conformation Judges released just recently on November 26th there is a vigorous defense of the new Judging Approval Process which unfortunately is unsigned. All the other articles contained therein were accounted for by the authors. Why this is unsigned unless an Editorial is unexplained. Perhaps one of the strongest defenses for the new masking system revolve round the Staff’s “concerted efforts to ensure that the individuals judging history is conveyed to committee”. It is claimed--see reprint in this issue-- that with the exception of the name of the applicant, their judges number, contact information and any other “obvious” indicators of identity all other information is provided. Not only is that argument rejected by these pages as going too far with which to begin these pages are told that for certain people who have served on the JRC the applications they saw had the other information blacked out as well. Perhaps each of the revolving

Committees sets different standards and requirements which may thwart Staff’s attempts to provide detailed information. It is further claimed that it is unfair to compare application approval rates under the current and previous application process as there are vast differences between the two. Wasn’t one of the goals of the JTF to do just that? Must have been dropped as unworkable although for a change there was no official announcement about it. THE MARCH ELECTIONS The behind the scenes nonsense for the March elections is beginning to heat up with much negative talk coming from the usual spreaders of venom. With only four people running, two present sitting Board members and two non-Board members, although one was on the Board for a long period of time some are pitching a battle of the “ins” versus the ‘outs’. Others are just looking for a third person for whom to vote. The four candidates are to be heard in Orlando the Friday before the AENC as the Delegates prepare their questions to ask. Perhaps one should ask Dr. Garvin and Mrs. Scully why they should vote for them after their votes for masking and against the CHF were cast. It would be interesting to learn why Mr. Menaker has decided to run again and how he would have voted on those two topics as well. As for Mr. Dok’s two, at least, unsuccessful runs for the Board one must ask what has changed which makes him more acceptable than the times he ran before? THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK Well after this issue only two more left for the year. It’s been a long tough year for us all what with the many high profiled deaths within the Fancy itself in 2013. If there was one common thread which bound all those who passed on in 2013 it was their continued love and devotion for the sport of the dog which bound them together. Let us keep in mind as we near the year’s end our responsibility and obligations are to the welfare and well-being of the dog we all love and adore. All else is hogwash in the context of the dog world and the politics and power brokering must take a back seat to our care and commitment for the welfare of the dog itself.

IRVING’s impressions By Ronnie Irving

Normally I try to avoid being too critical of the AKC in this column. After all I am not American - nor do I live in the USA - so what right do I have to comment? However there are a couple of areas where I really think the AKC deserves some criticism – even from an outsider like me. The first is on its reluctance these days to publish the AKC registration figures either for its registry as a whole or on a breed by breed basis. The second area is its apparent reluctance to do anything very much at all to tackle the type of physical exaggeration that we see in certain breeds. Some of these can undoubtedly lead to problems for a number of dogs of the breeds concerned. On both of these counts my view is that the AKC is letting down the breeders and perhaps more importantly the breeds involved.

REGISTRATION STATISTICS

As far as the non-publication of registration numbers is concerned, it seems to me nothing short of childish to take the view that publication of the total number of registrations or the number of registrations per breed should be suppressed. I know that the league table of rankings stating where each breed is positioned is still published but that is simply not enough. The AKC I’m sure argues that the information being suppressed is commercially sensitive. They would say that publication would give their competitors an undue amount of information which could be damaging to the AKC’s ability to succeed commercially. But there are two questions for the AKC to answer in my view. The first is how is it that through all of the boom years when the news about registrations was good news, the figures were readily available but once the news started to be bad it suddenly became commercially sensitive? Surely it is when things are increasing that the competition needs to be kept in the dark. When things are going badly the information is of far less use to competitors. 14 Dog News

The second question is just how are the breeders of individual breeds (the AKC’s stakeholders and customers) supposed to be able to gauge the direction in which their breed is going and how is the dog fancy as a whole meant to know what is happening to its position in the world? Obviously they can tell in relative terms whether their breed is becoming more or less popular as compared to other breeds. But unless they are aware of the actual numbers they have no idea of how they are performing in absolute terms. This is surely important information both for breed clubs and for individual breeders. Does the AKC think that by hiding the information it will somehow make itself look better and stronger than it actually is? If that is the AKC’s view, then I’ve got news for it. The result is quite the opposite. Most people think that the suppression of that information is nothing more than a defense mechanism to hide a position of weakness or an attempt to avoid the consequences of letting its constituents know how bad things actually are. Though we don’t, I think, know the figure for sure, we estimate that the annual AKC registrations for all purebred dogs is now down to less than 500,000 per annum. TKC’s last published figures in the UK gave its annual number as 229,000. At one time the number of AKC dogs registered each year per 1000 American citizens was about 5.5. In the UK TKCs figure was about 4.5. Today TKC’s figure is 3.8 registered dogs per 1000 members of the human population per annum - and the figure for AKC is down to about 1.7. Enough said!

EXAGGERATION AND VISIBLE BREED HEALTH

The other area where I believe that the AKC deserves some serious criticism is in its apparent lack of proactive movement towards doing anything really constructive about some exaggerated features that we see in certain breeds. Some of these could undoubtedly lead to discomfort at least, or pain at worst, for a number of dogs of the breeds concerned. Over almost the entire world, including in the UK and in most FCI countries, there are moves nowadays to make sure that breeders and judges are constantly reminded that the activities in which they are involved, can exert a major influence over the health and wellbeing of purebred dogs. TKC has changed its rules in recent Continued on page 66

Retirement Age For Judges?

C

ertainly a loaded question. I don’t have any idea of what the average age of the current population of our judges is, but I do have a suspicion it is on the high side. Over the years we have all heard horror stories about judges who kept on judging despite a variety of ailments- one of which was blindness!!! Stories about blind judges who judged by “voice recognition”- in other words knowing the handlers voices – without even being able to see the dogs- have been told on both side of the Atlantic. True or not I cannot say, but definitely not unlikely. Judging seems like a retirement occupation for many people, it is their way of keeping in touch with their old friends and the sport in general. Therefore I can understand it is very difficult for some to “ throw in the towel” at the right time- as it also has so many additional social consequences. Rules are different in different part of the world. Some 30 + years ago the Swedish KC introduced a new rule: Judges had to stop judging at the age of 70. I was a lot younger at the time, so it did not really seem a terrible thing to remove these old folks from the scene. Today, I naturally have a totally different outlook on the case. Anyway- at the big Stockholm show after the new law was introduced, there was a great “Farewell Ceremony” for 3 of our greatest and most respected judges- all women: Ulla Segerström, all-rounder and world famous for her French Bulldogs bred under the prefix “Ullah’s”; Sigyn Litorin, another all rounder and famous breeder, originally Sealyhams, but later made her mark on Labradors under the prefix “Knalle’s”; and finally Agnes Evenröd, a Sport18 Dog News

ing dog specialist who for decades bred English Cockers carrying her “Sandön’s” kennel name. So these 3 authorities were considered “past their sell-by date” and despite all their accumulated knowledge put on the” scrap heap” simply because they had reach the age of 70. Just thinking about it today makes me wonder if the board that made this decision were the ones who ought to end up on the “scrap heap”! I probably have to mention that in this country we see people work and being active in their trade or profession way beyond what we in Scandinavia have determined is the time to call it a day. If you are not self-employed and reach the age of 65 or 67 you will simply find out that if you don’t leave of your free will- you will be helped by a kick from behind! With a normally fairly decent pension! So maybe that attitude in many ways was reflected in the “authorities” when they made this, which to me now seems like an utterly ridiculous decision. Fortunately it took the board just a couple of years to realize what a stupid mistake they had made. These ladies were much more useful and valuable to the sport than they had ever imaginedso now the senseless decision was reversed and the old girls were soon back in the center of the ring, doing what they did so much better than so many, judging dogs. In Scandinavia you can give Challenge Certificate in all recognized breeds, even if there is only 1 dog of the breed in the entire country. So all- breed judges were a necessity and already in short supply before these ladies were “cut off”, so I suspect this was one of the reasons they were formally reinstated.

The KC (UK) also introduced age limits. I am not sure about the exact rules, but at a certain age you could not apply for more breeds (I think it was 75) which from a rational point of view might seem ok, but after the age of 80 you were not judging any more! I think in a questionnaire for overseas judges you were told that if over 75 at the day of the show, you were not a candidate? I think even the KC has modified some of their “age rules”, but a couple of years ago I was having a conversation at Crufts with two of my all time favorite English ladies, Marion Spavin, world famous for her Dialynne Beagles, and Betty Flavell, famous for her Wynwrights Pomeranians. I did not have any idea about their actual age, but when I asked them what they were judging over the weekend, I was told “Oh No! We’re both too old.” To witness these two ladies sidelined simply for being octogenarians, still brighter and more “with it” than most 40 year-olds, showcased the stupidity of an absolute retirement age. I guarantee that they would both have been able to do a better job than many of the “up and coming stars” judging around them at this show! I believe even England has modified their age rules. I can understand it may be difficult to tell people that they are no longer able to live up to the expected standard, but in a country where we have a number of well qualified Field Reps keeping an eye on them, it should not be a cut off point due to age, but due to incapacity. I know there in some cases might be conflicts and lawsuits involved, but the AKC decides who is qualified to judge and should also without interference be able to decide if you no longer live up to expectations, whatever the reasons might be.

Akc has nearly reached the banner figure of one million “likes” on Facebook. How do you think that figure will affect the registration of purebred dogs for akc?

Cindy Meyer

I think that one million likes on Facebook is certainly a good thing. Anything that gets the public involved with the AKC has to be a positive step. However, it remains to be seen whether this will affect the number of registrations. Will there be any way of knowing if Facebook influenced someone to register their dog?

Question Of The Week By Matthew H. Stander

Joe Purkhiser

Roz Kramer

One million of anything is impressive. What it translates to, in this instance, is a bit murky. People from all over the globe are into “social media” and will become fiends with whatever is in front of them. It means nothing.

One should ask this question first – “How has it affected registrations thus far?” Surely AKC should be able to see a difference NOW in registrations, if it should have any impact. Personally I doubt it will have much in the future.

JUDGES EDUCATION – WHOSE JOB IS IT?

A Different

PERSPECTIVE by Linda More

T

he AKC’s Judging Task Force Committee, chaired by Dr. Charles Garvin, recently published a very ambitious proposal for judges education, outlining a method of trying to teach breed specific information online. While the proposal contained some interesting, creative ideas, the committee recognized there were many “challenges” to its possible success. Not the least of these was the potential cost in dollars and time (and “time is money” too) – both to AKC and to the breeders, owners, and others whose dogs and expertise would be required. To quote the proposal, it would be “a large project and potentially very expensive and time consuming.” Given the primary audience for such a project – some 3000- plus conformation judges – compared to the size of the dog fancy as a whole, one must ask whether the benefits to be derived – if the program could be a success - would justify the cost, especially at a time when AKC is watching its budget and has so many more pressing things to worry about. For one, what point would there be in an

26 Dog News

expensive breed education program, if there were no more purebred dogs to judge thanks to the very well funded and zealous animal rights extremists? And there is another question that one – this one, anyhow – would ask, and that is, just whose job is it to educate potential and present judges on breed knowledge? Should this even be on AKC’s to-do list? Surely we already recognize that those who want to learn about a breed, in order to judge it well, will find ways to do so; those who are merely going through the motions so they can apply for more breeds and advance more quickly, will not absorb the information no matter how it is presented or at what expense.

The eager, interested potential or present judges can find many ways to learn about a breed. One of course

would be attending a seminar, or two or more, and listening carefully, asking questions, and refraining from chatting with others or falling asleep. Yes, that’s right,

snoozing. At one seminar I attended a friend was presenting one of her breeds, and after she was through she came over to ask whether I thought she had to give a certificate to a judge sitting in the front row who slept through most of it! But do you doubt that he put it on his application for that breed anyhow?

Going to seminars is one way to find mentors, and so is contacting parent clubs, asking breeders and exhibitors, and fellow judges. If you are

really interested in learning a breed, you will find mentors, and preferably several so you are exposed to differing points of view. One way not to find the best mentors would be those Wannabe Mentors who offer online to mentor all and sundry on breeds they never owned, bred, or exhibited, but are in one of the groups they are approved for……probably not that long ago, either, relatively speaking. Fellow judges can be helpful mentors but explore their background in the breed, first.

CHAIRMAN’S

REPORT NOVEMBER 26, 2013

Advancing Our Sport

N

ew York, NY – This year we celebrate the 129th anniversary of the American Kennel Club. Today, as it has been throughout those years, our beliefs and traditions continue to guide us in our sport, while innovation continues to advance us. We began the year with the spirit of relentless positive action in search of new ideas to advance our sport - a spirit shared by the Board, Staff, Delegate Committees, and the Delegate Body. Working together, we have evaluated scores of new programs and implemented dozens across Conformation, Companion, and Performance events in our quest to continuously increase participation and assist clubs. The following is a sampling of those innovations impacting our sport - some already in place, some coming before the end of the year, some starting next year: • Scheduled the inaugural AKC National OwnerHandled Series Finals in Orlando in December • Expanded the AKC National Owner-Handled Series to specialty and group shows • Evaluating testing all-breed and group clubs meeting certain criteria to hold two shows in one day • Added to both the number of Executive Field Representatives as well as staff in the Event Department to better serve exhibitors, clubs and judges • Offered the option for clubs to award a threepoint major to the Reserve Winners at National Specialties • Created levels of the Certificate of Merit to encourage dogs to continue to compete • Evaluating adding the Bred-by-Exhibitor Class to Miscellaneous • Added CGC as a title program • Launched advanced CGC Community Canine program • Added new “Pre” classes for Obedience (PreNovice, Pre-Open, and Pre-Utility) • Approved AKC Rally National Championship launching in Pennsylvania in April 2014 • Removed restrictions on Rally to allow any club to hold Rally whenever they desired • Permitted clubs to hold Rally events without also having to offer Obedience • Approved the offering of two Agility Trials in a day by Specialty clubs • Modified mileage restrictions to allow Agility events within 100 miles of each other with the agreement of both clubs • Upgraded Online Entries system to better serve Agility competitors and Trial Secretaries 30 Dog News

• Held Agility Advisory Committee – first recommendations for administrative improvements will be effective 1/1/14 with others to follow • Approved allowing Canine Partners to participate in Tracking at the club’s option effective 1/1/14 • Added new Tracking test (Tracking Dog Urban) to Tracking program effective 1/1/14 • Implemented Online Plans and Results tool for clubs offering Coursing Ability Tests • Added Retriever Hunting Test Lifetime Achievement title effective 1/1/14 • Added new Grand Field Champion titles earned in Pointing Breed field trials starting 1/1/14 • Added three new breeds participating in Performance events • Increased the number of titles AKC displays on a dog’s record and on printed documents (extended Dog Title Name) • Recognized Barn Hunt titles • Implemented program to recognize Wilderness Search & Rescue dogs • Expanded number of clubs holding My Dog Can Do That • Changed all sport Rules/Regulations to allow clubs to offer lower entry fees for Junior Handlers at the club’s discretion • Approved allowing premium lists and judging programs to be delivered solely by email • Modified policy on combined catalogs to support national specialties and clusters • Implemented Standing Board approval of common special attractions • Added asterisk to designate Delegate Judges in the Online Judges Directory • Expanded the type of clubs eligible to participate in the Club Outreach program • Welcomed Agility clubs to apply to become member clubs Of all the innovations we have reviewed and implemented, the one that has the greatest potential for the future of our events is marketing. The issues impacting our events today have been clearly identified and discussed. They can be collected into three categories – societal, economic, and legislative. While the apparent reasons are simple to discover, the solutions are significantly more complex. It will take very sophisticated marketing to achieve our goal

of bringing more participants to our events and more members to our clubs. We are not only up for addressing it, we are capable of delivering it. Our headroom for growth is significantly larger than anyone might have imagined. Currently, there are about 350,000 people living in households with some active involvement with the AKC. What is our headroom for growth? Amazingly, there are about 100 million people with at least one dog in their home, roughly half with a purebred dog. Our research indicates the majority shares our beliefs and know and respect our brand - but really do not know we have something for them and their dog to participate in, learn from, or just enjoy together. The AKC Board and Staff are taking a number of steps to address this opportunity. We continue to grow our communications web with almost one million fans on Facebook and two million unique visitors per month to our website. Obviously, we are already reaching significantly beyond our 350,000 constituents to people who share our beliefs. Since people read, share, and engage more with information when it is presented by people they know and trust, we have the opportunity to introduce them to our sport. Staff is currently creating marketing programs to stimulate event participation utilizing a variety of communication assets. Although we already possess significant consumer research, we continue to conduct studies to learn from participants and potential participants. In addition, the Board is developing a new strategic plan to specifically address the next three years. Peter Drucker, the father of modern management once wrote, “The purpose of a business is to generate new customers, and only two functions do that – innovation and marketing. All other business functions are expenses.” I believe strongly in that thought. I also believe that innovation and marketing are too important to be the province of a few. The McDonald’s Happy Meal, invented by a franchisee, is just one famous example of brilliant innovation and marketing coming from outside the corporate office. I encourage all of you to share your thoughts about ways to improve our events. Thank you. Sincerely, Alan Kalter Chairman

he BBC television documentary Pedigree Dogs Exposed caused an international uproar in 2008, with footage of a cavalier King Charles spaniel with a skull too small for its brain and basset hounds described as “deformed congenital dwarfs.” In 2011, under the headline “Can the Bulldog Be Saved?,” an article in the New York Times Magazine detailed serious health problems in that breed, including the untimely demise of two University of Georgia bulldog mascots. With that kind of media exposure, is it any wonder that purebred pets have become synonymous with poor health? But that’s an unfair rap, says Jerold Bell, a geneticist at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and coauthor of the Veterinary Medical Guide to Dog and Cat Breeds (Teton NewMedia, 2012). Any dog or cat can have diseases and disorders linked to genetics, says Bell, “but what is lacking in the popular press about purebred dogs and pedigreed cats is that there are choices about how you acquire them and that health-conscious breeding can insure a healthier future.” Because all individuals in a dog or cat breed are related to each other, you might assume that any health problems are the result of inbreeding. Not so, says Bell, who notes that experiments with laboratory animals show that repeated matings between full siblings over generations will cause many family lines to die out because of infertility and genetic defects—and others to thrive. The results depend entirely on whether a particular family line propagates or loses diseasecausing genes in successive generations.

Unlucky Offspring

What does produce inherited disease in our pets is the unchecked propagation of defective genes. 42 Dog News

Most breeders do the right thing as best they can, says Leslie Lyons, a professor of genetics at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. From chatty Siamese to sunny golden retrievers, she says breeders create “beautiful animals with wonderful personalities and traits,” including ones that are quite useful, such as bomb-sniffing dogs. “But everybody—whether you’re a dog, cat or human being—carries different genetic mutations,” she says. For example, the Afrikaner population in South Africa has an unusually high incidence of Huntington’s disease, the inherited neurodegenerative disorder, because most are descendents of a small group of Dutch settlers, one of whom carried that gene. In livestock, genetic health is considered vital to quality control, notes Bell. “It’s only in dog and cat breeding that we have had a long history of pairing mates without any regard to their genetic health.” As a result, he says, “we see diseases in cats and dogs that should have been prevented over and over again.” Inherited health problems don’t hound only purebred animals. Thirteen of the most common hereditary disorders in dogs—including degenerative hip disease, an eye condition that causes blindness, some cancers and slipping kneecaps—occur with equal frequency in mixed-breed and purebred animals, according to research done at UC Davis and just published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. It’s not unusual to see inherited diseases in mixed-breed animals—be it a randomly bred mongrel or a designer breed such as a Labradoodle (Labrador retriever crossed with a poodle)— because they are “ancestrally down line from where those original mutations occurred,” Bell says. “Frankly, if we said today that every animal that is a carrier or has a genetic disorder can’t be bred, we might as well just go ahead and say goodbye to domestic animals.”

Origins of Canine Disease

First domesticated more than 15,000 years ago, the dog, more than any other animal, has been defined by artificial selection, says Lyons, who will speak at the Tufts Canine and Feline Breeding and Genetics Conference Sept. 27–29 in Boston. Humans tamed wolves and then almost immediately began selecting from within this small group of founders for ones that were good for protection or hunting. “We then further refined hunting dogs to be masters at specific types of hunting,” Lyons says, such as breeding to produce experts at pursuing quarry into holes. Distinct dog types appeared 3,000 to 4,000 years ago. Modern breeds, however, trace their roots to much smaller groups of individual animals chosen over the last couple of centuries, when it became popular to raise dogs with specific physical attributes for showing. “It took only a handful of dogs to establish each breed,” says Noriko Tonomura, a research assistant professor at the Cummings School who conducts research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where scientists are studying the DNA of purebred dogs to gain insight into how cancers, diabetes, cardiovascular problems and other diseases develop. “To use a very crude analogy, each breed is like a population expanded from a few families of humans,” she says. The higher incidence of certain disorders in these “families” can be traced to an increase in the genes responsible for those health problems. Most often this is a result of what is known in the dog-show world as the “popular sire syndrome.” When a male dog wins championships, he often becomes a trendy stud that’s bred widely. The effect is twofold, says Bell. “His genes—including any unhealthy mutations— are quickly multiplied and represented much more prominently than those of other males in the population. The breed also loses the diversity of those genes carried by the now-sidelined quality males.” Genes responsible for health issues may be located near other genes that are being selected for, says Bell. For example, the genes that produce Dalmatians’ spots were located near an abnormal gene that made some dogs unable to metabolize uric acid, leading to bladder stones. Over time, the Dalmatian completely lost the normal version of the gene responsible for uric acid metabolism, so in the 1970s, at the request of the Dalmatian Club of America, the American Kennel Club sanctioned a mating between a Dalmatian and a pointer to reintroduce the normal gene to the breed. The spots of the first generations were poor, but now, after more than 10 generations of mating their offspring with Dalmatians, the breed has perfect spots and can once again metabolize uric acid. There was pushback from some Dalmatian breeders about allowing these dogs to be registered as purebred Dalmatians, but now their descendants are considered legitimate members of the breed.

Hybrid Vigor Myth or Reality?

P

By Sharon Pflaumer

urebreds are not always at higher risk of inherited health problems according to the findings of a study that investigated the prevalence of genetically-based disorders in dogs. More specifically, the research determined the prevalence of 24 inherited disorders in dogs by evaluating the medical records of the more than 90,000 purebreds and mixed breeds treated at the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital between 1995 and 2010. The results of the study were published in the June 1, 2013 issue of the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association. “From the group evaluated, 27,254 dogs were identified as having 1 or

more of 24 inherited disorders. The 24 disorders included various types of cancers; heart diseases; endocrine-system ailments and orthopedic problems; as well as, allergies, bloat, cataracts, epilepsy, an eye lens problem and a liver condition,” Anita M. Oberbauer, PhD, says. She was the study’s lead investigator and is a Professor and the Chair of the Department of Animal Science at UC-Davis. “The 24 inherited disorders were selected for study because they can be diagnosed accurately, are highly prevalent in the overall dog population, and are debilitating to the extent that owners would seek veterinary care for an affected animal.”

The purpose

The purpose of the study was to question the validity of the assumption that purebred dogs are less healthy than mixed breeds. “There have been many instances where individuals have asserted that mixed breeds are healthier than purebred dogs. Although we already know this is not the case with conditions like hip dysplasia, there was never a large scale analysis completed where the accuracy of that assertion was assessed until now. Given that absence of scientific data, I always wanted to do a large scale study to investigate the validity of the ‘hybrid vigor’ concept,” Dr. Oberbauer says.

The methodology

The study was a collaborative effort with her co-authors, Dr. Danika Bannasch and Dr. Thomas Famula, where the records for all dogs seen at the hospital during the above time frame were reviewed. Thus the samples of purebred dogs and mixed breeds were random. “There were 90,004 dog records assessed that met the study’s very specific criterion for inclusion,” Dr. Oberbauer says. “When any dog is seen at our hospital, the clinician records its breed if it’s a purebred. If it’s a mixed or crossbred dog, that’s also recorded. Any dog labeled as a mix or crossbreed was considered to be a mixed breed dog. Dogs of American Kennel Club-recognized or Miscellaneous Class breeds, and Foundation Stock Service breeds were considered to be purebreds. All non-domesticated canine patients--dingos, foxes, coyotes and wolves--were removed from the sample. Likewise, Pit Bull–type dogs were evaluated separately because of the inability to validate their purebred status.” Of the 90,004 dogs examined at the veterinary medical teaching hospital that had an identified breed status (purebred, mixed, or pit bull–type), 27,254 had at least 1 of the conditions under study. The remaining 62,750 dogs that did not have any of the disorders were considered the control group.

The 24 inherited disorders

The selected disorders represented a variety of different locations and physiologic systems in the dog’s body. “We looked at hemangiosarcoma, lymphoma, mast cell tumor, and osteosarcoma for cancers,” Dr. Oberbauer says. “We looked at aortic stenosis, dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mitral valve dysplasia, patent ductus arteriosus, and ventricular septal defect for heart disorders. We looked at hyperadrenocorticism, hypoadrenocorticism, and hypothyroidism for endocrine disorders. We looked at elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia, intervertebral disk disease, patellar luxation, and ruptured cranial cruciate ligament for orthopedic disorders. And for ‘other’ systems, we looked at atopy or allergic dermatitis, bloat, cataracts, epilepsy, lens luxation, and portosystemic shunt.” 44 Dog News


The findings

The study’s results contradict the assumption that purebred dogs are always less healthy than mixed breed dogs, the latter of which supposedly always benefit from “hybrid vigor.” “For 13 of the 24 genetic disorders, we were unable to identify any differences in their occurrence between the purebred and mixed breed populations,” Dr. Oberbauer says. “The 13 disorders where this was true included hemangiosarcoma, lymphoma, mast cell tumor, and osteosarcoma in the cancers category; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mitral valve dysplasia, patent ductus arteriosus, and ventricular septal defect in the cardiac category; hip dysplasia and patellar luxation in the orthopedic category; hypoadrenocorticism and hyperadrenocorticism in the endocrine category; and lens luxation in the other systems category.” (A breakdown by breed indicating the prevalence of each inherited disorder was not included in this article because the data from the study only reflects the population investigated at UC-Davis and might differ geographically.) “Cranial cruciate ligament rupture was more likely to be observed in mixed-breed dogs than purebred dogs. The 10 remaining inherited disorders were all diagnosed in a greater proportion in purebreds than in mixed-breeds. The 10 disorders where this was true are aortic stenosis and dilated cardiomyopathy in the cardiac category; hypothyroidism in the endocrine category, elbow dysplasia and intervertebral disc disease in the orthopedic category; and atopy or allergic dermatitis, bloat, cataracts, total epilepsy, and portosystemic shunt in the other systems category.”

Some caveats

There are some caveats to the above findings according to Dr. Oberbauer. “Prevalence reflected the proportion of seen dogs with the disorder. It was not greater in those categories but absolute numbers were. The most frequent breeds affected by each disorder changed when adjusted for absolute numbers of dogs of that breed evaluated at the clinic. Although some breeds appeared multiple times in different disorders, no breed dominated by the percentage of breed members affected,” she says. There are some possible explanations for the higher incidence of some of the inherited disorders in purebreds. “In the case of elbow dysplasia for example, many breeders assess elbows before breeding their dogs, whereas most owners of mixed breed dogs would only have elbows x-rayed if their dogs were lame. Hypothyroidism is another example where breeders often test their dogs before breeding them. Again, most mixed breeds would only be tested for it if they were symptomatic,” she says.

Given the above, the genetic screening performed by many breeders may have skewed the study’s results, i.e., made the incidence of some genetically-based disorders appear lower in mixed breeds than in purebred dogs when it really isn’t. “There also were some inherited disorders where particular subpopulations or breed types exhibited certain characteristics predisposing them to it. The rest of the purebred population did not exhibit the same characteristics and, therefore, was not predisposed to those particular inherited disorders. “Bloat is an example where you only see certain breeds of purebred dogs affected by it, while the remainder of the purebred population is equivalent to the mixed population in terms of its incidence,” Dr. Oberbauer says. A number of disorders such as hypoadrenocorticism, hip dysplasia and epilepsy were found to be well dispersed throughout both the purebred and mixed breed populations. “Here, we can hypothesize that the mutations causing these disorders are either ancient or involved so many genes that the conditions universally occur in all dogs,” Dr. Oberbauer says.

The follow-up

As is often the case with research projects, the results of the study raised some additional questions. “We intend to do some follow up studies where we look at a couple of things,” Dr. Oberbauer says. “Of those inherited disorders where we did see a significant difference in the prevalence in the purebred population, we want to try and more specifically parcel out which breeds are affected or determine if purebreds in general are affected. The results for some of the breeds were skewed because the number seen was quite low. “We’d also like to determine if the breeds most related show a particular disorder and, if so, trace it back in a lineage to determine where the condition may have arisen. If occurrence is related to a particular lineage during breed derivation, those kinds of things can be bred away from.” In addition, Dr. Oberbauer and her colleagues intend to follow up on another study currently underway and being done by Dr. Benjamin Hart, who is also at UC-Davis. “His study is investigating early spay and neuter in Golden Retrievers,” she says. “We are going to take the data from it and review it relative to the 24 genetically-based disorders to see if there are any correlations. We want to see if dogs, both purebreds and mixed breeds, have a higher incidence of any of the inherited disorders related to spay and neuter status. “We know that in rabbits spaying prior to

bone maturation makes the bones very weak. That’s because estrogen is needed to promote full bone maturation. If you remove the gonadal steroids prior to growth plate closure, the plates continue to elongate for a longer period of time resulting in larger individuals. If you castrate a bull early for example, you get a steer with longer bone length than a bull would normally have. Anytime you accelerate or extend the period of bone elongation, you alter the way the bones would normally interact with the joints. So, there are a lot of potential implications we want to investigate.”

The conclusions

Overall, the prevalence of inherited disorders among purebred and mixed-breed dogs in the study depended upon the condition, with some having a clear distinction between purebred and mixed breed dogs and others having no difference in the rate of occurrence in either population. Again, it should be noted that the breeders devoted to improving their breed may have created the impression that the purebred dogs investigated in the study are not as healthy as the mixed-breed dogs because they had genetic tests performed that document the occurrence of inherited disorders, whereas the mixed breed owners don’t have the tests performed unless their dogs are symptomatic. “Purebreds are not necessarily healthier or less healthy,” Dr. Oberbauer says. “It’s a matter of the individual genetic disorder being looked at. Likewise, mixed breeds are not necessarily healthier or less healthy. Again, it’s disorder specific. “That means we must pay attention to inheritance for any dog we breed because none are free of genetic disorders. I had a labradoodle breeder call me who had bred a dog that had hip dysplasia, Addison’s disease and epilepsy. She expected the puppies to have hybrid vigor and couldn’t understand why the dog she bred had all of these health problems. It wasn’t surprising to me however. Some Labrador Retrievers and Standard Poodles carry the genes for those conditions.” Because only breeding dogs that screen clear of inherited disorders would likely reduce each breed’s gene pool severely, Dr. Oberbauer advises the following. “We always advocate that you use judgment at times when breeding a carrier to non-carrier to preserve desirable traits. With definitive diagnostic tests, you could breed an affected to a clear and breed the best carriers from that to clears. While compromises may need to be made to preserve the overall breed and breed population, the goal of improving genetic health should never be abandoned.” For more information, see Prevalence of inherited disorders among mixed-breed and purebred dogs: 27,254 cases [1995–2010] at http://avmajournals. avma.org/doi/abs/10.2460/javma.242.11.1549

Experts Warn Dog Flipping On The Rise

All In The Family by Charles C. Robey

A

recent Dog News Editorial (November 8, 2013) entitled “State Regulations A Must” noted 15 people were treated for rabies as a result of an adopted puppy biting someone and passing the disease on. The pup, according to The Wall Street Journal, was brought into Vermont under unusual circumstances resulting in the first case of rabies in that state in over two decades. Does this news release give rise to the possible repercussions of “dog flipping”? These editorial remarks continued by addressing the possible health issue involved with dogs sold through the Internet and dogs illegally transported from state to state. I wholeheartedly agree with this editorial segment. Illegal dog transportation is truly running rampant, with little or no restrictions or health concerns. So, who should be held responsible? If you’ve ever lost a pet, you know how upsetting it is. For many, a dog or cat is part of the family. And just

when you think criminals can’t stoop any lower, they surprise you. A disturbing new scam is on the rise across the country, that being “Dog Flipping”. What is a typical “dog flipping”? A predatory individual will get hold of a dog, either by stealing it or pretending to be the owner of a found dog. Then the dog will be sold for a quick profit through the Internet. This is not only a cause of concern for pet owners but for anyone looking to buy a dog as well. And often times pet flippers will prey on any number of not-for-profit pet find organizations, as well as individual pet owners. Pet flippers seem to be getting more organized throughout the country and in some cases they will target their victim very carefully in one section of the country, only to move the dogs in another section of the country far removed from the dogs’ original location. Often times, the flippers will do extensive homework and choose dogs well known for breeding purposes. A dog sold without a registration certificate may be worth about $500. Whereas, a dog sold with a fake registration certificate could go for as much as $2,000, depending

on the need and the breed. And the initial pick-up person, or thief, can quickly make from about $50 upwards to the thousands of dollars, depending on the breed. Dog flippers will prey on innocent pet owners looking for a good place to re-home their pet. The individual may feel the dog is getting a good home, but the dog winds up being warehoused with many other dogs in a tiny space, only to be sold to the highest bidder. Charging a fee for your dog is a very good pet flipping deterrent. This cuts into the flipper’s profit, forcing the flipper to look elsewhere. Another measure to prevent an uncontrolled dog population increase is to have your pet spayed or neutered, as dog flippers have been known to produce undocumented puppy offspring. Not to mention the possibility of “oops litters” that occur as dogs are housed together awaiting being sold. The biggest problem with dog theft is that police departments give it a low priority, as the “crimes against person” take priority, as generally police departments consider “animal theft” as property crime. SOME IMPORTANT STATISTICS According to AKC, the number of dogs stolen across the U.S. has jumped 47 percent from January 2012-September 2013.

The Standard THE AKC NEWSLETTER FOR CONFORMATION JUDGES Update • Fall 2013 Volume 14 Number 58

Judging Approval Process

At the April 2013 Board meeting it was determined that the identity is to be masked on all applications presented to the Judges Review Committee (JRC) for consideration. At the June 2013 Board meeting the composition of the JRC was modified to address vacancies which had resulted in the postponement of the May JRC meeting. The implementation of the “masking process” coincided with the first meeting of the new JRC. It is important that the judging community be aware of how the JRC has functioned since this time, and the application results that have come from them. This information should quell most of the misconceptions and misunderstandings that have circulated the last several months. One of the greatest concerns that has been expressed with the decision to mask the identity of applicants is that the individual’s history associated with their name will be lost. While name recognition by the committee has obviously been eliminated, staff makes a concerted effort to ensure the individual’s judging history is conveyed to committee. For each Additional Breed Applicant, staff provides the following to the JRC: • History of Executive Field Representative (EFR) reports • Application history – Year first approved – Breed(s) first approved – Years applied – Number of breed requested/granted • Notes regarding correspondence in file from the fancy • Interview results • Individual letters of synopsis for each breed requested What is removed from all documents is the name of the applicant, their judge’s number, contact information and any other “obvious” indicators of identity (i.e. identifying spouse/ significant other, parents, kennel name, etc.). What remains is virtually everything else that the applicant chooses to provide for the committee to consider, including personal experience and background. 50 Dog News

At its June through November meetings, 95 Additional Breed applicants have been reviewed by the JRC. • Total breeds applied = 808 • Number of breeds granted = 608 • Number of applications fully approved = 53 • Number of applications limited = 39 • Number of applications denied = 3 The statistics display an approval rate of 75% of breeds requested. In addition, 55% of applications were fully approved, 42% were limited and 3% denied. The reports of gloom and doom concerning the approval of breeds needless to say have been exaggerated. It is unfair to compare application approval rates under the current and previous application process as there are vast differences between the two. This includes but is not limited to the elimination of the one-for-one policy on an individual’s first five applications and the absence of defined minimum criteria one must complete to apply for a breed. The current policy allows all Additional Breed applicants to apply for up to 1⁄2 the number of breeds in the largest group. Currently, that number is 15. Just because one can apply for 15 does not mean they should. In preparing an application, determining the appropriate number of breeds to apply is extremely important in addition to understanding what is to be included in your letter of synopsis pertaining to your preparation. Judging history (length, breeds approved and previous application results) is a contributing factor in the determination of the number of breeds granted by the JRC. Items that will affect the committee’s confidence or hesitation in awarding a considerable number of breeds: • Number of breeds currently approved • Years judging • Lack of EFR reports (number) • Lack of recent EFR reports • Recent negative EFR reports • Numerous negative EFR reports over time With the elimination of the one-for-one policy from the previous approval process, it is a reasonable assumption that many applicants are applying for more breeds then they should. The committee by nature will be hesitant in

awarding a significant number of breeds to one with limited history and limited EFR reports to provide any indication of their judging proficiency. Close examination and scrutiny of one’s own history (including EFR reports) mixed in with a dash of humility should guide one in the right direction. What should I include in my letters of synopsis? As per the policy, the onus is upon the applicant to display their preparedness to judge the breed requested in a letter of synopsis. Each individual letter should include everything that you feel justifies your request to be approved for that breed. It is not the responsibility of AKC staff to furnish an applicant’s educational experiences. It is the staff’s responsibility to verify those experiences included within an applicant’s letters. To clarify, the applicant should include in the letter for each breed any seminars, observations, mentors, tutoring sessions, judging experiences, etc., WITH the “what, where and when.” As the board policy states that experiences should be verifiable, you should furnish copies of certificates from seminars, tear sheets or judging schedules from sweepstakes/futurity/special attraction assignments, match flyers, ringside observations, mentor/tutor forms, etc. to verify the experiences you have included. It is important to understand that the supplementary documents are used to verify experiences and are not forwarded to the JRC to review. The letters are not evaluated by the number of pages or words. The most effective letters are those that concisely display the applicant’s verified experiences in that breed. Where did you go, what did you do, who have you spoken with, where have you judged, etc. are all answers you should provide. You may expound on specific experiences or on the breed itself if it is your determination that information will assist in displaying your preparedness for that breed. As previously notified, an “essence statement” is neither requested nor required. Approval is based upon the committee’s review of your history of judging, interview results and individual letters of synopsis. In summary, you have the greatest influence over the success of your application for additional breeds. Your means of control are (1) electing to apply for a number of breeds that is reasonable and realistic based upon your history and (2) applying for specific breeds which you can effectively display you have sufficiently prepared. All applicants are encouraged to review all information pertaining to applying for additional breeds found on the AKC website in the Judges Resource Center. As always, please contact Judging Operations at (919) 816-3593 or via email judgingops@akc. org or speak with an Executive Field Representative at an AKC Conformation event with any questions concerning the Judging Approval Process.

Round-Up

PART SIX (FINAL)

Terriers

by Karl M. Stearns

You’ve already read in these pages about the unusual weather during Montgomery weekend. For attendees, it was surely a welcome relief from having one’s shoes sucked off in the mud, or enduring snow and cold. While the weather was summer-like, Sunday dawned misty, foggy and cool, a PERFECT day to show terriers. Me? I spent most of the time in sandals and shorts. But not in the show ring.

T

he wins from Thursday through Saturday were dominated by Scandinavian Cairns, most notably the Cairns from Elisabeth Theodorrson from Hjo, Sweden (writer’s note: Hjo is pronounced “Yoo”, and Theodorsson’s kennel is Hjohoo, pronounced “Yoo Hoo”). It is rare to see Ms. Theodorrson at Montgomery but was much welcomed by my wife, Helene, and myself since she is an old friend. At the host hotel on her arrival she confided to me that she didn’t know what she was going to do since she left Sweden in the cold and packed nothing but winter clothes. If her winter clothes in hot weather brought such success, then I’m forever wearing several layers when I show! The Montgomery Weekend is very special for Cairn Terriers and their humans as it is the Cairn Terrier Club of America National Specialty weekend. Much planning and effort goes into this affair since there are social functions, health 54 Dog News

screenings, a fund-raising auction, flea market, sweepstakes, puppy kindergarten, annual membership meeting, committee meetings, education programs, and a Board of Governors’ meeting. Little time to breathe, but lots of activity and certainly a time to catch up with old friends and see what has been happening with everyone’s breeding programs. Crossed wires on Thursday caused the Cairn judging to be held later than usual. This necessitated moving the Education Day program to later in the day so none of the day’s important activities had to be eliminated. Breeder-judge Pamela Davis presided over an entry of 47. In the end, she chose for Best of Breed GCH HJOHOO’S SAVE HJOUR LOVE FOR ME, bred by Theodorrson and coowned with Victor Malzoni, Jr. BOS went to GCH. CONNACHT A HA’PENNY WILL DO, owner Pat Joyce.

The Education Day program, coordinated by Dayle Ziesmer, featured excellent programs on holistic medicine, acupuncture, the benefits of physical therapy for your dog, along with demonstrations from the presenters. Petra Ford, P.T., CCRT, of Aqua Dog Rehabilitation of Flanders, NJ, presented on the benefits of physical therapy particularly for the canine athlete. She discussed the unique challenges of the showdog and

what is needed to have them in top condition for the show ring. She also had information on the benefits to all dogs when physical therapy is used to address specific needs and conditions. Ms. Ford brought several pieces of equipment she uses in her sessions to demonstrate. She also had her wonderfully trained canine demonstrators who wowed the group with their delighted participation in therapy exercises. Jordan Kocen, D.V.M., from SouthPaws Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center, Fairfax, VA, next presented on holistic medicine and acupuncture. Dr. Jordan pointed out that such treatments are adjuncts to traditional veterinary medicine, and his approach is to use them to integrate with other forms of treatment both traditional and non-traditional. As he explained, such treatments may be indicated to boost the effectiveness of other forms of treatment. Dr. Kocen spoke of his special interests in homeopathy as well as Chinese herbal medicine. Some attendees remained to watch a demonstration of canine acupuncture performed on a Cairn. Many thanks to Dayle Ziesmer for putting together an excellent panel of speakers for a very informative evening. Friday’s judging at Hatboro was done by all-rounder Keke Kahn, with an entry of 59.

THE NORWEGIAN BUHUND

TUSENTAKK, BUHUND

ince 2009, a number of people who compete in AKC dog sports and who do not necessarily have anyone remotely Norsk in their personal ancestry, have been saying “Many thanks” to their Norwegian Buhunds. That these all-purpose farm dogs, originally developed along the western coastlands of Norway, would be successful in the herding arena was not unexpected but many in the breed are also very good obedience and agility dogs to say nothing of being fine lure coursers and enthusiastic barn hunters. “Norwegian Buhunds are a remarkably versatile breed,” said Cathy Mazzotta, who has a pair of Buhunds, BISS Am GCh Can Ch Randalyn Spring Jada CD BN RN AX AXJ NF (“Jada”) and Trollheimen Mocha Cappuccino CDX RE MX MXJ OF (“Moka.”) “They are exceptionally intelligent dogs and very fast learners. Although they can be independent thinkers in many respects–after all, they are Spitzes–they also crave praise and cookies. They are extremely strong and agile, they are inquisitive and fun-loving, they have keen noses and they strive to please people. All these traits make Buhunds terrific dog sport teammates. Although Buhunds traveled with the Vikings, the AKC only recognized the breed five years ago and as a result, there are only a few hundred of them in the U.S. While we don’t have any worries about what happens if the breed becomes too popular, these small numbers put us at a disadvantage in the conformation ring because most conformation judges have yet to see a Norwegian Buhund and many that have are unfamiliar with the breed standard. Just as an example,

Trollheimen Mocha Cappuccino CDX RE MX MXJ OF (“Moka”), another of Mazzotta’s Buhunds, does one of the jobs the breed was originally intended to do.

“Buhunds were meant to be farm dogs and are used for herding, hunting vermin and as watchdogs. What this means is that they are good at several but by no means all activities,” Kinzi (ARBA Ch MACH2 UACH Jorund Kinzi CD RAE MSX MJC MXP MJP MXF NFP Ca THD CL3-R CL3-H CL3-S GS-N AAD ASA AJ AG AS), one of Jasmine Tata’s Buhunds, has had considerable success in agility but was less enthusiastic about barn hunts.

Nemo (ARBA Ch Zodiac’s Orion Rising AX AXJ NF CL2-R CL2-H CL2-F CL2-S GS-N HCT CGC ORT), Tata’s other Buhund, took to lure coursing and barn hunting with no training whatsoever in either sport.

one judge told me that another Bu won over Jada because the other dog was a better double tracker even though Buhunds are single tracking dogs.” “I think any breed can be successful in several dogs sports at least at the beginning levels. The trick is to find out which sports are best for your dog based on their temperament, structure and speed as well as your own personality, ability and inclination. Buhunds were meant to be farm dogs and are used for herding, hunting vermin and as watchdogs. What this means is that they are good at several

but by no means all activities,” said Jasmine Tata, who owns Kinzi (ARBA Ch MACH2 UACH Jorund Kinzi CD RAE MSX MJC MXP MJP MXF NFP Ca THD CL3-R CL3-H CL3-S GS-N AAD ASA AJ AG AS) and Nemo (ARBA Ch Zodiac’s Orion Rising AX AXJ NF CL2-R CL2-H CL2-F CL2-S GS-N HCT CGC ORT.) “One unique aspect of Buhunds is that they belog to the spitz group as well as the herding group. Their spitz side means that they tend to be independent which means that they will not do something just because you ask them to do it. You have to convince them that it is in their best

interests to do what you want them to do. Their herding side means they can be sensitive and will shut down easily during training, especially with harsh techniques. So it is a challenge with this breed to find training techniques that balance their independent and sensitive sides.” “Buhunds have that ‘spitz quality’ combined with their herding instinct that gives them a certain biddableness. Overall they are physically quick, enjoy learning and working with their human partner so that helps in most performance sports. I’ve had most of my success with Buhunds using very positive training with treats and clickers balanced with rewards and patience. It is absolutely paramount that the dog and I are having fun whether competing or training. The only place we’ve ever encountered any significant problems has been in the conformation ring. Sookie’s (Ch Kyons Vesle Bon Temps OA AXJ SPJ ) coloring is not preferred. She’s a natural in the show ring although she’s rather enthusiastic about making friends and early in her show career, a judge encouraged her. That’s all it took. We had to do some training to get her to stand still on the exam and not hug and kiss the judge. My first Buhund Morgan (MACH Kyons Morgan La Fey MXS MJS XF MAD JM HCT) was not a fan of the show ring. While I did start training her in obedience, her lack of ‘patience’ to do the Continued on page 96

t’s the holiday season, the time of giving. From the ubiquitous bell ringers at the mall to jammed email inboxes and old-fashioned snail mail solicitations, there’s never a shortage of charities and nonprofit foundations looking for donations at this time of year. But how is one to know which endeavors are worthwhile amongst the nearly two million of these organizations in America vying for donations, disposable income and tax writeoffs? There is some assistance out there for navigating which of these organizations are legit — the web sites Charity Watch (formerly the American Institute of Philanthropy) and GuideStar, which contains information on 1.8 million nonprofits registered with the IRS — are good places to start, along with the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance and Charity Navigator web sites. There are also web sites that enlighten potential donors that some organizations may not be what they seem. Like making any investment, one must be diligent in researching which organizations are carrying out their missions most effectively and where their donations will have the greatest impact for a cause that one believes in. Many people will donate funds at the sight of a malnourished or diseased dog to organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States or PETA without bothering to investigate how those funds are allotted. Yet it’s reported that the HSUS gives less than one per cent of its annual nearly $150 million revenue towards the hands-on care of pets and PETA has supported violent domestic terrorist groups such as the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front and the Center for Consumer Freedom reports “PETA killed a staggering 89.4 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2012” at its Virginia headquarters. That figure is actually down from a 97.3 per cent kill rate in 2009 and since 1998, of the 33,658 pets received by PETA at its Virginia headquarters, 29,398 have been killed, or 87.34 per cent of the animals taken in. HumaneWatch.org reports, “Despite its annual budget of more than $100 million, the Humane Society of the United States doesn’t actually provide much hands-on care to pets. HSUS and its affiliated groups have more than $191 million in assets, $160 million of which HSUS itself holds. And HSUS has put away millions in an executive pension plan—

result of natural or civil disasters like tornadoes; and of course, Take The Lead, an organization that celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. Created largely in response to the AIDS crisis, Take The Lead has provided funds for members of the extended purebred dog community who have fallen on hard times due to life-threatening or devastating illness. The process of applying and receiving funds from Take The Lead is completely confidential. There are many nonprofit organizations that provide service dogs for veterans and guide dogs for the blind throughout the country, some with specializations in these areas. For instance, Mira Foundation USA is the only organization in the country that provides guide dogs for children between the ages of 7 and 17. Leader Dogs for the Blind was recently selected from among hundreds of nonprofits to be honored with the Mutual of America Foundation Community Partnership Award, the 2013 Governor Hugh L. Carey Award, for its Prison Puppy Raiser program. The program is one of many across the country (Puppies Behind Bars, Paws In Prison, Dawgs In Prison, etc.) that enlists the help of inmates in state prisons to raise dogs in their cellblocks. There are myriad benefits to these programs. The dogs have a higher success rate in training than dogs raised in private homes and the prisoners who do the training have more success staying out of prison after their release. Leader Dogs for the Blind collaborated with the North Central Correctional Facility in Calhoun County, Iowa, launching the Prison Puppy Raising Program in 2002. It has since expanded across four states and places nearly 100 puppies each year with inmates at six minimum-security prisons. These programs are exemplary on many levels. Not only are these nonprofits helping inmates give back to the community and to feel a sense of self-worth, but they are helping to train canine companions that have an untold impact on the lives of many other people – wounded veterans and their families who depend on dogs to restore some sense of independence and normalcy, for instance, or anyone afflicted with blindness who can return to a productive life in which they can fully participate. The cost of training these dogs can be expensive. According to Paul Sullivan in a November 8 article in the New York Times, “One guide dog [for the blind] takes about two years to train and costs a total of $45,000 to $60,000” and “about 45 percent of dogs bred by the schools do not make the grade. Those that do are provided free to people who need them.” For those not flush with cash there are other ways to help and give, not only during the holiday season but all year round. In addition to much needed funds, many of these organizations are also in need of people power. Volunteers are needed to walk and socialize dogs, or raise them in their homes for short periods of time teaching them basic commands and obedience training. Not everyone can be a philanthropist but all can give in some capacity. As the requests for assistance often say, “please be as generous as your means will allow.”

LEASH Giving

ByShaun Coen more than $16 million since 1998. During the same period, HSUS shared less money with pet shelters.” Additionally, HumaneWatch.org reports that 71 per cent of Americans think HSUS is an umbrella group for animal shelters and that 59 per cent think that it contributes most of its money to local organizations that care for dogs and cats, which is not the case. Some HSUS commercials have asked for contributions of $19 a month, which viewers assume will go towards keeping animals alive and in good health, when in actuality that money may be going towards lobbying, ballot initiatives and pension plans. The good news is that there are a whole host of programs and organizations that are making legitimate efforts to improve the lives of animals and humans and they receive excellent reviews. The Animal Welfare Institute, for instance, gets an A+ rating from Charity Watch, while Friends of Animals gets an A, as does Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), PetSmart Charities and Wildlife Conservation Society, and the American Humane Association (not to be confused with the HSUS) gets an A-, as does Best Friends Animal Society and D.E.L.T.A. Rescue. For purebred dog fanciers some of the popular charitable and nonprofit organizations include the American Kennel Club’s Canine Health Foundation, dedicated to advancing the health of all dogs and their owners by funding scientific research to prevent, treat and cure canine diseases; the AKC’s Reunite (formerly AKC CAR), which, through its AKC Reunite Canine Support and Relief Fund, can provide resources, support and other assistance to not-forprofit animal shelters and similar not-for-profit organizations providing care for pets displaced as a

ithin a period of approximately four weeks our sport has not one but two National Shows of different designations and quite frankly different ranges of importance as well. The first is the Kennel Club of Philadelphia designated as the National Dog Show involved with Purina. This show with an entry of approximately 1,500 entries mostly from the East Coast is televised immediately after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 12 days after the show is held. Notwithstanding the fact that this is a canned show the audience watching the show on TV is just tremendous. Indeed Nielsen reported that NBC’s show last year was up 24% over the previous year’s ratings for ‘local people meters’ and in the very age group alleged to be so highly coveted by the social media pushers at AKC Messrs. Kalter, Amen, Walker and the Edelman Group those in the demographic category of the ages 18-49 had the highest ratings in the last seven years!!! Those are hard figures for AKC to ignore one would imagine even with the close to 900,000 new friends they have created on Facebook. So it will be interesting to see what if any presence AKC had ON the televised show itself. At the show according to an unhappy writer (see this week’s Letters to the Editor) there was no

The “Two Nationals”, Alan’s November Chairman’s Report

AKC presence whatsoever which would of course be a shame since this should not be a competitive situation between the two “National” shows sponsored by different dog food companies but an effort to gain as much exposure at any national Event as is possible. The second National Show is of course AKC’s own show held in conjunction with Eukanuba in Orlando, which this year has close to 5,000 entries. This of course includes Agility and Obedience as well but is an amazing figure guaranteeing this show as the largest entried dog show of the year one would imagine. Tied in with the 3 Florida shows although independent of them the dogs entered are far more national and international in degree and may even be overall of a higher quality of dog entered than was in the case in Philadelphia. But the quality of the entry for these nationally televised shows is secondary to the exposure the purebred dog receives from a public standpoint as the general public does not hold the dogs to the high degree of quality which shows oriented for and to the fancy do. But this year there is an added dimension of difference between the two shows and that of course is that for the first time ever the AKC National Championship will not be televised nationally -- live or canned and will be restricted to -- online streaming only -- throughout the day and evening performances. How that will affect the size and demographics of the watchers remains a pervading question difficult to both answer and analyze. I must say my own opinion is that the show will suffer from a lack of John Q Public watchers but will increase the number within the Fancy watching the show. Since one of the major purposes of this Show when it was originally created years ago was to gain more and further exposure nationally for AKC and the dog show processes itself it looks to me as though AKC has strayed from its course and is following a new and to my mind a very dangerous policy in this area. Time will tell that’s for sure.

n another note is the rumor that Del Monte is negotiating to buy Iams/ Eukanuba. Reports that P&G have been looking to sell those divisions have been circulating for the past several years on the financial pages of both the WSJ and the NYT. This though is the first time that I have heard a buyer’s name associated with the rumor. Del Monte is said to be a logical buyer because it is looking to expand its pet products division after agreeing last month to sell its canned peaches and corn division. Del Monte itself is owned by KKR the private equity firm which acquired Pets at Home in 2010. This would expand Del Monte’s position in the pets and treat industry and push it past Mars company for the second biggest market share in North America. It is said that a representative of Del Monte when asked about the acquisition said the company refused to comment on specific merger and acquisition plans. How this would affect the AENC if it occurs is hard to tell but as I recall Eukanuba has at least two years remaining on its existing contract with AKC.

lan Kalter’s November 26th Report is contained elsewhere in this issue. This Report is an attempt to outline many of the positive things accomplished by the Board, Staff and Delegate Committees and the Delegate Body which they have either accomplished, evaluated changed or offered through the year 2013. It runs the gamut of all matters AKC although I must admit I found the list to be a bit selective in nature. For instance why was there no mention that the Board was considering a vote about Delegate Eligibility but there was a mention about evaluating two shows in a day? Did that indicate a stand on Alan’s part on either issue or was it merely an omission? Similarly the one area TOTALLY ignored by Alan Kalter was the disarray thrown into the Judges Approval area by the Board’s reformation of those procedures. Masking never happened according to this report and the reintroduction of the long dropped theory of Major Breed recognition to get a Group ignored as well, as was the redirection of AKC to the support or lack of same for CHF. This too a non-happening. Not too sure Alan is being totally up front here about what the Board has or has not accomplished or even evaluated, are you? One final note before we close for the Thanksgiving Holiday is to wish you all a great Holiday Season and a safe and happy rest of 2013.

IRVING’s impressions Continued FROM page 14

years to emphasise and remind judges that a dog should be penalised if it is ‘suffering from any visible condition which adversely affects its health or welfare’. The rules also even allow show organisers to exclude dogs in that category from the show. TKC’s Code of Best Practise for Judges says amongst other things: “Judges must, in assessing dogs, penalise any features or exaggerations which they consider would be detrimental to the soundness, health or well being of the dog.” High on the published list of FCI objectives are the words “The FCI considers health, temperament and behaviour as the most important matters in dogs and their Breed Standards.” Then, under FCI Rules breeders are reminded that they should “keep the breed standard as the guideline for breed specific features and that any exaggerations should be avoided.” Under the FCI ‘Judges Code of Commitment to Welfare’ a judge: “has to be aware that under all circumstances his judgment has to take into account that extreme features which can cause health, behavior or movement problems have to be severely punished.”

BREED STANDARDS

Turning then to the breed standards - the introductory paragraph to every breed standard under TKC’s Rules states amongst other things: “Breeders and judges should at all times be careful to avoid obvious conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed. From time to time certain conditions or exaggerations may be considered to have the potential to affect dogs in some breeds adversely, and judges and breeders are requested to refer to the Kennel Club website for details of any such current issues.” Then in the faults section of every UK breed standard the following words are included: “Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.” Similar statements are made in most FCI breed standards. These then are the efforts made in most countries to make absolutely certain that all judges are under pressure not to allow any exaggerations in the dogs winning under them. What is the AKC doing in this regard? 66 Dog News

AKC AND BREED STANDARDS

I am of course aware that the AKC is not legally in a strong position to change breed standards in a way that would help avoid exaggeration and help breed health. The power to do that apparently lies with the breed clubs. The original published objects of the AKC in its 1884 constitution did include the management of breed standards and stated: “The object of this Association shall be to secure uniformity in rules governing Bench Shows and Field Trials, the revision of standards, the decision of such appeals as may be taken from the decisions of the managers of Bench Shows and Field Trials held by members of this Association.” By as early as 1887 however the reference to breed standards was dropped and replaced instead with words which referred to: “the improvement of any breed of dogs.” Then ten years later in 1897 even that object was removed and reference was changed to refer only to “the proper conduct of person interested in the exhibition, breeding or sale of dogs.” So apparently the AKC long ago gave up any specific reference in its constitution to breed standards or to canine health. Now however its constitution under Article III says “Objects of the Club - The objects of the Club shall be to advance canine health and well-being.” Then also, the present AKC mission statement says: “The AKC and its affiliated organizations advocate for the purebred dog as a family companion, advance canine health and well-being, work to protect the rights of all dog owners and promote responsible dog ownership.” So the AKC does, according to its constitution and its mission statement, now have a duty to advance canine health and well being.

LACK OF GUIDANCE

The question I would ask is: “Is the AKC doing enough in dealing with breed standards and judges to guard against the accusation that it is burying its head in the sand when it comes to over exaggeration of certain features in certain breeds?” There are two areas where I believe it could have far greater influence if it chose to do so. One is in the area of breed standards. Though it may not be legally able to force breed clubs to change their standards it could and should do far more in its guidelines for the writing of breed

standards. It could encourage a far greater degree of attention to be paid to avoiding exaggerations and concentrating of using the show ring to improve visible issues that can affect a dog’s wellbeing. The AKC’s ‘Guidelines for Writing Breed Standards’ does not, as far as I can see, make any reference at all to breed health or to exaggerations. The section entitled “Points to consider in writing breed standards” could be used in an attempt to steer breed clubs in the right direction. It states “The purpose of a standard is to be a guide for breeders and judges. As such, it is important to keep in mind those features that make the breed unique, those qualities the breed must possess to do the job for which it was created. A standard should emphasize what is important in the breed.” Surely there is an opportunity here for the AKC to add to the list of things which should be ‘kept in mind’, words to the effect that: “When writing breed standards breed clubs should avoid clauses which might encourage conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed.” At least by inserting those words the AKC would be able to argue that it had discharged its duty to “advance canine health and well being.”

AKC AND JUDGES

What about the AKC’s attempts to influence judges to take care of canine health? Are they doing enough? Some will doubtless argue that judges ought automatically to be taking account of this whenever they take to the centre of the ring. And I have some sympathy with that point of view. But wouldn’t it help – or at least be good for the reputation of the AKC – if it made some reference to preserving and even improving canine health and to avoiding breed exaggeration when it gives instructions to its judges. The word health only appears twice in the current AKC “Rules, Policies and Guidelines for Conformation Dog Show Judges.” Once when the AKC Mission statement as above is repeated - and once to say that: “No lights or other equipment that are distracting or would affect the performance, health or welfare of the dogs, exhibitors and/or the judges will be allowed.”!! Even the word “sound” only appears twice and on both occasions it refers to soundness of judging – not soundness of the dogs!

NOT GOOD ENOUGH

All of that is surely not good enough. In my view it definitely ought to be remedied by the AKC. Judges, no matter how experienced, ought undoubtedly to be told – or if not told then at least reminded – that their main duty or at least one of their main duties is to penalise any features or exaggerations which could be considered as detrimental to the soundness, health or well being of the dog. In my view if the AKC doesn’t pick up these issues soon and start to run with them, it is going to leave itself very vulnerable to external criticism – not just from animal rights types but from the average John Q Public as well.

(Pequeno, Medium & Large) Wherever a new dog star shows up on the dogdom scene, besides raising curiosity on the dog itself, it calls attention to its country of origin as well. No matter how many dogs are already known from the same country, the limelight focuses on the whole package (dog and country) again. This serve to prove that the fancy is directly involved in the culture regarding zoology and history.

n the AKC’s universe a new star is born, so we will go back to Portugal, the country of origin of the new competitor not only in the show ring but above all in the heart of every dog lover. When visitors arrive to Portugal they will discover what would they have been missing if did not been there because the country is a world of beauty geographically

and historically speaking, besides the chance to experience the true meaning of the word hospitality. The Portuguese people are famous for their warm and friendly manners. The prices in Portugal are accessible, the food and vine are fabulous, and the cod fish (originally from Norway) a typical dish, and nowhere in the world will you ever eat a better cod stew than the Portuguese Bacalhoada! When visiting the country it is an unforgettable experience to hear the “Fado” a typical song, a folk music genre recently added to the World’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. (note: I just learned that there is an “Intangible” Cultural Heritage list as well). Portugal is a fascinating country. According to the 2001 census there are about ten million people living in Portugal. Most of the current Portuguese population grew from the mixture of all the peoples who have inhabited and

traded in the region over the centuries. The first to settle were the Iberians, and over the years Celts, Romans, Germanic tribes, Moors, Jews, and others migrated into the area and combined to develop a people with unique physical characteristics. Most Portuguese have typical Mediterranean features like brown eyes, dark hair, and a height of less than 6 feet. Evidence of the Germanic tribes can still be seen in the north of the country, where taller, light-haired and light-eyed people are occasionally encountered, and in the south, traces of the Moorish period are seen in both the physical type and the way of life. (http://www.golisbon.com/culture/ people.html) There are also many facts that should be remembered when we mention Portugal. Since 1494 most of the so called “New World” belonged to the Portuguese Kingdom. In fact this country was the first global empire in history, and during almost six centuries Portugal was one of the longest living colonial powers.


T

he Portuguese language

is spoken by over 236 million people (Brazil, Cape Verde Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Principe, Sao Tome, Equatorial Guinea, Macao, East Timor, Angola, and Goa). The University of Coimbra founded in 1290 is one of the oldest in Europe. The country has the same borders since 1139, so it is the oldest nation in Europe. In the same year Alfonso Henriques was crowned the first king, and Portugal remained as a kingdom until 1910. Portugal has the oldest bookstore in the world. (Bertrand Bookstore established in Lisbon in 1732). The Vasco da Gama Bridge in Lisbon is 10.5 miles (17 kilometers) long, the longest in Europe. The Anglo-Portuguese Alliance was signed in 1373 and is in force today. Talking about the first, the oldest, and the most impressive, I must mention that on the 1st of November in 1755, Lisbon was struck by about a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, which was followed by a tsunami and fires that destroyed the city! 275,000 residents were killed and 85% of the buildings were destroyed! In 1761, half a century before Britain, Portugal was the first colonial power to abolish slavery. Finally, Portugal is the largest cork producer in the world. The history of the country is built with the participation of universally important figures, many of them navigators whose discovery trips

collaborated to shape the history of the world. From the navigators Vasco da Gama, and Fernando Magalhaes (Magallean) to the famous American born of Portuguese parents composer John Philip Souza known as “the March King” (1854-1932), to the Nobel Laureate writer Jose Saramago, there are hundreds of important and well known Portuguese personages. And finally there are the several Portuguese indigenous dog breeds besides the Number 1 Presidential Portuguese Water Dog. Originally Podengo type dogs were brought to Iberia by the Romans and Phoenicians, and in the eighth century another strain of the breed was brought across the northern part of Africa which influenced the breed. Those antique dogs adapted well to the local climate, and the terrain. At the same time, while the breed began to disappear from the Middle Eastern countries, it began to show up in new areas provided by the Romans’ and Phoenicians’ constant traveling. Since the antiquity the Podengo developed for over 2000 years spontaneously in Portugal. The locals simply left Mother Nature to work and selected the dogs from

each litter always looking for the best hunter. The term Podengo was used early in the sixteenth century to describe all dogs that were pack hunters, and named all to Podengo de Mostra (mostra means to show, to point), and centuries later changed to Podengo. Probably the reason for this was to separate the sight hunter Galgos, from the scent hunter type dogs. At the time the Podengo arrived to the Iberian Peninsula, it looked similar to the Podenco of Ibiza. Each variety of the Podengo adapted to the Portuguese climate and terrain, and also to the brushy woods of Portugal, which requires a tougher coat for a dog to survive. (The standard stresses the two coat varieties so important for the breed survival: Smooth coat which is short and very dense and Wire coat (rough), which is long and harsh. The hair on the muzzle is longer (bearded) on the wire coat variety. The wire coat is not as dense as the smooth variety. Both varieties are without undercoat. Skin on both varieties is thin and close fitting. This is a very rustic breed, and should be shown naturally. Groomed but not trimmed or sculpted. Dogs whose coats have been altered by excessive sculpting, clipping or by artificial means shall be penalized as to be effectively eliminated from competition. A silky coat is a fault.).

b a bbling Retirement Age For Judges? Continued FROM page 18

One of the most fascinating aspects of this sport is that it is virtually ageless. By that I mean that judges, handlers and exhibitors from 15 to 90 know each other and communicate with each other. People are judged on personality, skill and ability on a more general basis – and not put in little boxes based on age, which I think is very common amongst people in general. I watched results where teens were asked how many people they knew over the age of 80- and the result was averaging 1 or 2. Probably their only surviving grand- or great grand parents. Kids don’t have contact across generations like in the old days. That is if they’re not involved in our sport. And I am firmly convinced that so many of our older dog breeders and judges are kept young and current due to the daily or weekly contact with the younger generations. I am only a little concerned that we don’t make sufficient use of the experience the seniors have, not only regarding judging, but all aspects of breeding, handling, winning or losing. Well, some of them were themselves really bad losers, but still by now looking at the world from the “other” side, might hopefully have a different perspective on life and could share their views with the masses. I am occasionally (4 times a week) playing golf with a 90 year-old ex-handler and judge who decided to retire from judging some 3 years ago. Still as bright as a teenager, with a wealth of knowledge he could willingly share with the world if asked, but I haven’t noticed many people asking! His wife, a number of years younger, still judging, with a similarly bright mind-background and experience matched by nobody, on top of everything that goes on in the dog world also in my humble opinion an underused resource. And I could also list a number of other seasoned campaigners that could contribute to the education of future dog people, but who are never asked. 70 Dog News

When you enter the American dog community after many years experience in other parts of the world, it strikes you what a closely-knit group it is, but also how small it is in comparison to many European countries. OK it’s a huge country with a huge number of smaller dog shows, but still you feel that everybody knows everybody. Surely wonderful when you already are part of it, but if not, would you as a newcomer feel welcome and at home? I am not sure it is so easy, but what has impressed me more than anything is the way many of the younger generation are looking after their mentors and even judges and ex-clients when they need some attention. But that doesn’t mean they cannot advise them to give up judging when they risk embarrassing themselves. I have seen examples of 80+ yearold judges doing fantastic jobs, just as I have seen 25year -olds doing well, without nearly the same background. But I have also watched 80 year-old judges causing total chaos in the ring because they were unable to remember what they just didand 25 year-olds doing a terrible job as they simply lacked experience and knowledge. There is nothing worse, in my opinion, than watching a person you have admired for years making a fool of him/herself during judging, because they did not realize they were no longer up to the task. Just as I hate watching old dogs with fantastic records returning to the ring as veterans, looking like s..t- and erasing all wonderful old pictures I till then had in the back of my head! So back to the Question: Should there be a fixed retirement age for all conformation judges? The answer is of course NO, but with the hope that the people in charge make sure their judges retire before they get a chance to seriously discredit or embarrass themselves. And to assist show secretaries, if a person repeatedly has to cancel judging appointments due to ill health or has obvious repeatedly “dizzy spells” in the ring. Take action.

Still we need the seniors to keep the youngster under control- and we need the younger generation to keep the senior young. I don’t know how large a percentage of the population actually have a serious interest and hobby similar to our retirees, but waking up every morning knowing that you have something to look forward to, phone calls, E-mails, all those wonderful dog magazines is invaluable and so much better that waking up to nothing but spending the day in a rocking chair in front of your television! To finish: One of the reasons this question has remained on my mind is what I witnessed happen in Sweden all those years ago. One of the 3 ladies mentioned visited our annual terrier show (Sweden’s Montgomery if you like) just 10 months after her enforced retirement. Hardly recognizable, previously a feisty, opinionated (in a good way) person with a strong personality. Used to judge major shows more or less every week end was now after less than a year of boredom- and probably lack of stimuli- looking 10 years older and sitting lonely in a corner by one of the rings. People who had previously been “all over her” simply did not take any notice of her at all. I hate to think it was simply because she was on no use to them anymore-but still hope she got a chance to retaliate once reinstated. But when that happened we had left the country so did never find out. Well, that kind of revenge would of course be unacceptable, however well deserved it was- and knowing the lady -I know she would never let things like that affect her mind! Well, after all, we are all just human beings … On the wall we have a sign saying: “Age is a matter of mind. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” Which I think in most cases reflects reality!

A Different Perspective

JUDGES EDUCATION – WHOSE JOB IS IT? Continued FROM page 26

directed mainly at breeders, what she said applies to judges just as well. I can’t say it any better than she did and I won’t try, but if you didn’t read that piece, go and find it, in the archives if necessary. Of course, attending specialties is a terrific way to see the range of style within a breed, but there are those who just cannot afford to take the time or spend the money, or both, to go to nationals for every breed they want to study. Local specialties can be very helpful, as can kennel visits – and if you are truly interested in learning a breed, you can’t avoid discovering who the wise, respected breeders are. Going to major shows to view large entries is important, some more than others. Anyone applying for terrier breeds, for example, who has not been to Montgomery, or Great Western, at least once and preferably many more times, does not appear to be serious about that group.

If you’re still with me, you should have realized that I am suggesting that it is your job, you the judge or future judge, to seek out the education you need. If

you really desire to judge well, you will not need to be spoon fed. Yes, it is the parent clubs’ job to provide breed specific information, and some parent clubs do it better than others (some are downright wonderful), but there is a vast amount of assorted and various “stuff” out there for you to acquire, in a number of different ways. It is my hope that AKC will maintain flexibility in considering what judge applicants have done to educate themselves, and not revert solely to the “box checking” that in many people’s opinions did nothing but result in something resembling an add-up-the-score board game emphasizing superficiality over actual knowledge gained and demonstrated.

78 Dog News

What about more general knowledge essential to being able to judge well? Some years

ago I was part of a seminar on the breed standard of a particular breed, for breeders. To my dismay, I found that a couple people who had already bred litters, indeed had produced point winners, did not know where the “pastern” on their dogs was to be found…… yet it receives due attention in the breed standard. At another seminar, in another breed, the parent club presenter – let me repeat that, the parent club presenter, did not know where, or what, the “croup” was – although again, it was mentioned in the breed standard in more than a passing way. There’s a lot of ignorance out there about dog structure and movement. It’s hard to imagine how anyone could be presumptuous enough to apply to judge even their own breed, without a basic working knowledge – no fancy scientific terms, just basic working knowledge – of structure, yet they do, and some of them have motored right on taking their ignorance with them into judging other breeds. By the time prospective and current judges attend a judges education breed seminar, we should be able to assume that they already know quite a bit about structure and movement, so that unless the breed has some unusual requirements in those areas (think Dachshunds, for example), it should not be the parent club’s job to try to teach what the seminar attendees should have learned long ago. Parent club breed education for judges should be like higher education, not first grade, but too often for comfort, we find attendees lacking a basic understanding of canine structure.

A number of parent clubs are now recognizing the importance of breeder education, and bless them! From the breeders come

the future judges, as well as all the dogs the judges get to judge. If the breeders don’t know what they are looking at in structure and movement as well as breed type, when and how will they obtain such knowledge, and who or what will encourage them to do so? Good mentors, fellow breeders and exhibitors, experienced judges can all be good sources. Like judges, breeders who are diligent in their pursuit of knowledge, will “do their job” and find the information they seek.

But structure and movement comprise an area where, I would suggest, AKC could perhaps make a difference. Using the same

sort of model proposed for the “Canine College,” an online course in basic structure and movement could be made available not just to judges but to breeders and indeed to the fancy at large – a wide audience that might make the cost worthwhile. Putting it online would make it accessible to almost everyone these days, and make it possible to include videos as well as still shots. It would not require upsetting parent clubs by requiring them to come to internal agreement (!) on who their “breed experts” should be or which dogs should be used to represent good, average and mediocre quality. It should, one would hope, be easier to come to objective agreement within AKC and its judging committee on whose general understanding of structure and movement could be used, and would permit the use of a variety of breeds. Worth thinking about?

S

everal years ago I received an invitation to judge in Belgium the third weekend of November. Knowing the biggest Bull Terrier show in the world was scheduled the weekend before in the Netherlands, I did not take any assignments so I could attend the Bull Terrier show. Early in the fall I realized I could not be

away for a long time period, so it was decided to make two separate trips for the two events. For all that know me well they realize my very strong passion for the Bully breeds and especially for the Bull Terriers. It was very disappointing for me

that I could not attend our Silverwood show this fall. It was a great consolation knowing I could attend the Trophy show in Holland. Continued on page 109

Unintended Consequences

Another example of the unintended consequences of selective breeding is the Shar-Pei, says Tufts veterinary dermatologist Lluis Ferrer. The ancient Chinese breed hovered near extinction after the Communist Revolution, when keeping pets was considered a bourgeois luxury. (Pets in China were taxed heavily at first, and later exterminated.) In the early 1970s, a Chinese businessman pleaded with American dog fanciers to import the few remaining Shar-Pei to save the breed. Genes responsible for health issues may be located near other genes that are being selected for, says Jerold Bell. Today American Kennel Club statistics list the Shar-Pei as the 52nd most popular breed in the United States, with most of these dogs descended from the handful of Shar-Pei that arrived from China 40 years ago. However, because of selecting for fashionable heavier wrinkles from within this small group of founders, the western Shar-Pei carry a genetic mutation that both creates the skin folds and predisposes some dogs to periodic fever syndrome, which can lead to kidney or liver failure. Genes that predispose certain breeds to disease also can increase in a population when breeders select for certain physical traits. Breeding for extremely short, baby-like faces in bulldogs, pugs, Boston terriers and Pekinese can result in brachycephalic complex, in which narrowed airways cause breathing problems, overheating and even collapse. “Most of the extreme physical traits we see are not called for in the breed standard,” which is each registry’s official guidelines for what a dog or cat in the breed must look or move like, says Bell. The problem instead lies with the “more-is-better” philosophy of some breeders, show judges and members of the public. Bell says it’s important for veterinarians and breeders to work together to avoid such extremes. Brachycephalic complex, for example, is caused by such physiological factors as the length of the dog’s muzzle, the width of its nasal openings and the diameter of its windpipe. “Researchers have determined that the width of the nasal openings should be one-third the width of the entire nose in order to allow the passage of air,” says Bell. “We also know what a normal diameter of the trachea should be in proportion to a dog’s third rib.” This means that breed clubs, which promote their mandated premating genetic screening through the Canine Health Information Center, could encourage breeders of dogs at risk for brachycephalic complex to have the nasal openings of all prospective canine parents measured and tracheas X-rayed to promote the mating of dogs with healthy anatomies. True to their reputation for independence, cats have resisted genetic meddling, until recently. 82 Dog News

Willful Cats

“They essentially self-domesticated,” says Lyons, of UC Davis. “Cats began hanging around humans about 5,000 years ago, drawn by the easy access to rodents, which hung around our grain stores. And up until the 1800s, cats did what they are good at, and nobody really messed with them.” This has given dogs a considerable head start in the genetic mutation arena, as has the fact that cat owners generally spend less on their animals. “About 90 percent of U.S. cats are randomly bred, with just a very small percentage of fancy-breed cats,” says Lyons. “For dogs, the converse is true. Complete mongrel dogs are actually very hard to find in the U.S. at this point.” But give pedigreed cats just a little more time, and they’ll quickly catch up in the genetic-problems department, predicts Lyons. “We’re getting there with Persians,” she says, noting that indiscriminate selection for a short face has produced many animals with watery eyes prone to bacterial infection as well as misaligned bites and difficulty breathing. One upside to inherited health problems is that “the hallmark of genetic disease is predictability,” says Bell. “If you can diagnose a genetic disease even before its onset, we can often intervene and either prevent or slow that progression.” A severe case of hip dysplasia can be prevented if a puppy is diagnosed early enough. “Surgery has to be done before any bony changes occur,” he says. Thanks to the sequencing of the canine genome, or hereditary map, in 2005 and the feline genome in 2012, researchers have begun to identify the mutations responsible for many inherited diseases.

Genetics Testing

For boxers, which can develop an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to cardiac failure, “we now have a genetic test that will tell us which dogs are prone to developing that arrhythmia,” says Bell. “I test all boxers when they’re young to determine if they have that gene. If they do, we monitor their heart rate and rhythm, especially between four and eight years of age, when the arrhythmia usually begins to develop. As soon as we see it starting, we can put the dogs on a drug that prevents the abnormal heartbeat, which means they’ll never go into heart failure.” Other breeds—including collies, Shetland sheepdogs, Old English sheepdogs and Australian shepherds—have a mutation in the gene called MDR1, which helps the animals metabolize drugs. If dogs with two copies of that mutation receive drugs commonly used to prevent heartworm or treat diarrhea, they can experience seizures or die. “Veterinarians can and should test all breeds that may carry that mutation before using any of the potentially toxic drugs,” says Bell. Some Doberman pinschers, Shetland sheepdogs, poodles and members of several other canine breeds carry defective genes linked to von Willebrand disease, a bleeding disorder similar to inherited hemophilia in humans. Bell notes that these breeds should be tested for the mutation before surgery to avoid excessive blood loss. Of course, genetic testing does not always stave off inherited disease. Researchers have discovered genetic mutations in Maine coon and ragdoll cats

associated with cardiomyopathy, a thickening of the heart muscle that leads to heart failure. But not all cats with the genetic defect develop heart disease, says Lyons. And all veterinarians can do for those that do is to try and slow the progression of the disease.

An Ounce of Prevention

The most effective medicine for treating genetic disease is to stop dogs and cats from being born with those diseases in the first place. “If you’re trying to produce healthy animals, you need to breed healthy parents,” says Bell, who raises Gordon setters. “And if we work to improve how pets are bred each year, we can very quickly and significantly diminish the number of animals with genetic illness.” There is good news to report. Bell says that over the past decade, canine registry-required genetic testing has resulted in significant reductions in progressive retinal atrophy, an eye condition leading to irreversible blindness in many dog breeds, including Portuguese water dogs, English cocker spaniels and Nova Scotia duck tolling retrievers. The most recent statistics from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals show a 25 percent reduction in hip dysplasia over the past five years versus historical averages across all breeds. Breeders of Burmese cats have used a new genetic test to nearly eradicate a type of hypokalemia (abnormally low potassium levels associated with severe skeletal muscle weakness) in just one year, Lyons says. Unfortunately, an impulsive pet-buying public often enables irresponsible breeders who ignore recommended genetic tests and screenings. “If a breeder who skips genetic screening can put an ad on the Internet and people will still send them thousands of dollars to buy a puppy or kitten, what’s the impetus for them to be health conscious and do the right thing?” says Bell. “And, sadly, people will spend much more time researching what computer to buy than finding a healthily bred pet.” By asking for test results from a purebred animal’s parents, owners not only end up with healthier pets; they also create a higher demand for responsibly bred dogs and cats. If official test results are not available, it’s time to find a different breeder, advises Bell. Finding a healthy puppy or kitten from a responsible breeder may take up to six months. This means you may not get the breed you want “off the shelf” as soon as you’d like. But given that a pet may be part of your family for 15 years or more, it’s worth the wait, Bell says. Although “a lot of irresponsible breeders have a health guarantee,” Bell says, “what that guarantee states is that they will replace the animal with one of equal quality if any genetic defects occur. But pets aren’t toasters. Once an owner purchases an animal, that emotional bond develops within the first five minutes. If something goes wrong, most owners are not going to say, ‘OK, I’ll give it back, and I’ll get another one.’ A pet is part of the family at that point.”

Experts Warn Dog Flipping On The Rise Continued FROM page 46

PET FLIPPING PRECAUTIONS Do not leave your dog unattended, even in your own yard. Do not leave your dog alone in a vehicle or tied to a public accessible point, while you temporarily go away shopping. Keep current photos of your dog to include front, rear, side, and under views. Videos are also very helpful. Keep your dogs’ Registration Certificates private by keeping the original certificates in a safe fire resistant storage and maintaining duplicates for review or inspection purposes. Do not give the dog registration certificate when you give your dog away to a good home. Retain all dog records, especially breeding records, for five years. Retain all vet records, for at least five years. Get your pets microchipped, so that the dogs may be identified. Register the microchip information, along with your emergency contact information, with a reputable microchip database, such as the AKC “Reunite Online” enrollment system.

84 Dog News

IF YOUR DOG GOES MISSING Often times a dog flipper will not only obtain a dog to flip for profit, but will also take advantage of a quick buck by returning a lost dog for monetary gain. If your dog becomes missing: • Check the well known animal recovery web sites. • Utilize the social media web sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, to publicize your loss. Be careful giving private information. • Alert your local law enforcement agency, vet and animal hospitals. •Alert your dog registry. Especially if an investigation unit is available. • A reward will tend to motivate people, but do not announce the amount. A large amount may cause people to wonder about the dog’s value, causing the dog not to be returned. • Insist that your dog be returned in person, by arranging to meet at a local vet’s office. Do not allow the party to come to your home. And be prepared to positively identify your dog. • Never advertise your dog as a “show dog”, “breeding dog”, “therapy dog”, or “search and rescue dog”. Just advertising the dog as a “family pet” tends to motivate people to look. • Always advertise a female as spayed, whether she is or not, to protect against unscrupulous breeding opportunities. Please note: Always be cautious of those “found” calls, as this is a very devastating time period. Be on the lookout for such scams as a request for an advance reward before the dog is returned, calls for out-of-state airfare to return your dog, or the dog is gravely sick and money is requested for emergency medical treatment before the dog can be returned. The BBB provides the following tips to keep from falling victim to a pet loss scam. • If you must place an ad, include

only essential information. Refrain from providing information about unique markings or physical attributes. • If you get a call from someone who claims to be out-of-state, ask them for a phone number where you can call them back. • If a caller claims to have your pet in their possession, ask them to describe something about the pet that wouldn’t be visible in pictures that may have been posted. • Never wire money to anyone you don’t know. • Many pet owners have also had their pets microchipped, as this preventative measure has proven to be effective in bringing lost pets home. In conclusion, dogs should never be considered to be a commodity, only to be given away when they no longer fit our lifestyle. I understand that sometimes bad things happen and cannot be helped. When this situation arises, be very careful not to let your dog fall into the hands of some unscrupulous “dog flipper”. Simply surrender your dog to a friend, a reputable “No Kill” shelter or rescue group rather than advertising the dog as “Free to a good home”. Author’s Post Script Will the new APHIS regulations help deter “Dog Flipping”? Well maybe, but I think not. You see, one need only answer a “free to a good home” ad in a local newspaper, give a sad sob story, and pick up the dog by a “face-to-face” visit. Then, one can flip the dog by selling the dog “face-to-face” to an unsuspecting victim. Or steal the dog outright, only to flip the dog by selling the stolen dog “face-to-face”, with or without fake papers. Thus the APHIS will never be the wiser.

Continued from page 54

DO, bred and owned by M. Patricia Joyce, was again Best of Opposite. Two other Hjohoo entries received recognition: CH. HJOHOO’S GIVE ME HJOUR LOVE, SEL Dog; and CH. HJOHOO’S LOVE TO LOVE HJO, AOM. SEL bitch was QUARRYDENE’S QUEEN OF DIAMONDS. Other AOM’s: GCH. KYLEAKIN RUFFED GROUSE, GCH. STONEBRIDGE JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER, and GCH. THISTLEGATE CALL THE WIND. WD: GREENSTONE’S WING MAN OF GREY GOOSE. WB: MOORGREEN’S MARZAPAN AND MAGNOLIAS. Friday evening was the annual dinner, with President William Kent presiding over the festivities. Awards for performance as well as conformation were given out. A gala auction was held with Canada’s own professional auctioneer Dick Mair (Skerryvore Cairn Terriers) handling the calls. One thing’s for certain: A professional auctioneer sure knows how to pry open those purses! Thousands of dollars for the Club as well as the Foundation were raised. Saturday brought the Sweepstakes at the hotel, as well as regular judging at Devon. Judge for the sweepstakes was Angie Chiquette. Unfortunately your reporter was headed off to Devon and cannot locate the results from Rau or the Cairn Terrier Club of America website. My deepest apologies, but others will have to report these results in the CTCA Newsletter. Judging at Devon was handled by R.C. Williams (provisional in Cairns), who presided over an entry of 42. BOB was awarded to yet another Scandinavian dog, GCH ROCCO’S COLLAR KING CARL XVI GUSTAF, owned by Ken Kauffman & Wendy Eckard. The Theodorrson bitch GCH HJOHOO’S SAVE HJOUR LOVE FOR ME returned to the winner’s circle for the BOS award. SEL dog: GCH TERRIWOOD MVP. SEL bitch: CH QUARRYDENE’S QUEEN OF DIAMONDS. WD: GREENSTONE’S WING 90 Dog News

MAN OF GREY GOOSE. WB: SKERRYVORE STONEHOLLOW WICCA. Saturday evening brought a final chance to mingle with all the Cairn fanciers as they enjoyed a cocktail party with heavy hors d’oeuvres. It was at the end of the evening that your reporter recalled leaving his sport coat and vest hanging on the tent pole at Devon. Despair was turned to joy when upon arriving home, a brilliant suggestion from Helene (non-computer person, we call her “computer innocent”—the brains of this operation) was to post it on Facebook and call my drycleaner since there was a drycleaner’s receipt stapled to the bag. Within a short time as it was circulated among thousands in cyberspace, I was contacted by Sarah Krickeberg. She is a professional handler from Illinois who spotted the garments during group judging and figured someone was going to miss them. She kindly returned my jacket, vest, and all the precious pins attached. Our friends in the dog world are truly a caring family! Thank you Sarah! And thank you Facebook! Oh, and yes, Sarah did INDEED call my drycleaner from the number on the slip to inquire about my whereabouts. Smart gal, but then my wife also told ME to call the drycleaner to see if anyone had phoned. I tell you, they’re ganging up on me….. Flea Market Coordinator, Tammy Erickson, and her crew of willing helpers put out a display of wonderful items for all to take home and treasure. This year, a large number of items were offered on a “silent auction” basis, which led to last minute excitement on Saturday evening as the bidding neared its close and the happy bidders raced to their items to see if they were successful. A sizeable amount of money was raised for the CTCA and the Foundation of the Cairn Terrier Club of America in this manner. Many thanks to Tammy and all her willing helpers.

unday dawned misty, foggy and cool. Perfect weather for showing. The entry, while lower than the historical highs (some of us remember when two rings were necessary to judge Cairns at Montgomery!) included many of the top Cairns in the country. Judge for the day was breeder-judge Sassa Stenroos from Finland. She worked efficiently in the ring, seemed to be enjoying herself, and exhibitors found her pleasurable to show to. Sadly, she did not respond to my request for some thoughts on the entry but language may be a barrier. Perhaps she will provide the CTCA with a write up for publication. In the end, Theodorrson was again to come out on top, but this time in a huge way. BOB was CH HJOHOO’S GIVE ME HJOUR LOVE, shown by Geoff Dawson. This is a dog owned by Linda Spain from Oak Brook, IL. The Spain’s acquired him from Theodorrson as a companion when they traveled to Hjo, Sweden. Urged to show him, he began his show career with some nice wins. My wife, Helene, judged the sweepstakes for the Cairn Terrier Club of Greater Detroit in 2011 and found this dog in the 6-9 class and awarded him Best in Sweeps. She was stunned when I told her at the end of sweeps judging who it was she put up, since this dog is a nephew to a Cairn we own from Theodorrson. Helene saw him this year on Saturday at Devon and asked if she could go over him. She was pleased to report that at 3 years old, this dog has held together nicely and has a very promising future. Theodorrson’s winning continued with BOS awarded to GCH HJOHOO’S SAVE HJOUR LOVE FOR ME, a littermate of the BOB. WB, another Hjohoo breeding: HJOHOO’S HJO GOT THE SPIRIT. An AOM also went to CH HJOHOO’S LOVE TO LOVE HJO. Other noteworthy wins: Another Scandinavian, GCH ROCCO’S COLLAR KING CARL XVI GUSTAF was SEL dog. SEL Bitch went to QUARRYDENE’S QUEEN OF DIAMONDS, whose lines also go back to Hjohoo breeding. AOM’s also went to (not in any particular order): GAEGORDON’S WINSOME JESSE (also WD), GCH STONEHOLLOW MAGIC TOUCH, CH HAVENSHIRE CROSSROADS DESTINY (from the Veteran Bitch class), GCH THISTLEGATE CALL THE WIND, CH MISTYBRIG SGIAN DUBH, and GCH STONEBRIDGE JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER. Much work goes into making these few days pleasurable for all who attend. Joyce Adams-Taylor has taken on the Herculean task of show chair. Many thanks to her and the dozens of volunteers who work for months in advance to make this annual event a nice experience for all.

RUE T North A Report From Canada

By Allison Foley Photos by Jean A. Delisle

T

he Ottawa Kennel Club is a timehonored tradition here in Canada. Indeed as Canada’s oldest dog club established in 1887 the Ottawa Kennel Club has been there through the thick and thin of it all and is a must for anyone on the campaign trail. Ottawa KC’s annual shows this past November were held in the nation’s capital of Ottawa and while this is only a 4-hour drive from Toronto and their crack smoking Mayor things here are seemingly a world away. This kennel club has been a strong force in the Canadian dog fancy for a period that now spans three millenniums. If this club has had its share of hardships it doesn’t show in the organization and effort put in to put on a gala event. One of the reasons this is a Canadian premier event to attend is the Annual Show of Shows Competition, open to ONLY all breed best in Show winners. This year marked the 47th running of the Show of Shows. Top dogs from coastto-coast flew in to attend this gala event, judged at night. The secret crew of the Ottawa 92 Dog News

KC takes down the all breed rings immediately following best in show judging on the Saturday and puts up a whole new configuration, with lights, spotlights, music and grandstands. The evening is formal and judged by an international panel of judges including Mike and Ann Jackman, Patricia and Michael Lantot, Jim Reynolds, Francis-

co Chapa, Sandy Alexander, John Hodgkinson and Rita Walker. As the news crews filed in the dogs strutted their stuff and at the end of the night the group winners were the Pointer Ch Black Alder Sam Spade, the PBGV Ch Auriga’s Rock Star, the Sibe Ch Highlander’s Rumor Has it, the Airedale Ch Westchester Hill Boy, the Frenchie Ch Foxmoor Petite Cherie Raison d’Etre, the Aussie Ch Hearthside Riveredge Sure is Summum and finally it was the Affenpinscher Ch Champagne Charly V Tani Kazari aka “Charly” who was crowned this year’s “Show of Shows” winner. This little dog is the number one toy in the country and he is really rewriting breed history here in Canada with 31 all breed best in shows to date. He is a half brother to the Westminster best in show winner Banana Joe. Charly was also the winner of

“One of the reasons this is a

Canada’s most prestigious all breed dog show, the Purina National. Along with the “show of shows” the Ottawa channel club also hosted three all breed shows. The best in show winner under Francisco Chapa and Rita Walker was the Affenpinscher Charly and the best in show winner under Jim Reynolds was the standard poodle “Kate.” Being one of Canada’s oldest dog clubs it also has, how shall we say, some of Canada’s oldest dog show people as its members. The very favourite being “Squibs” Mercier. Squibs took the bus each day to the Ottawa Kennel Club show, there she greeted everyone with a smile and a kind word. Looking ever the lady in her Staffordshire Bull Terrier jewelry she is the backbone of

the Ottawa Kennel Club and a favorite of all. She mans the Ottawa Kennel Club booth, being the first one there every morning (I didn’t know buses ran that early on a Sunday) and each day made everyone feel special. When you see someone dedicating their life like this to dog shows it really makes you smile at the tradition. After all, time honoured traditions are only such if we take the time to honour them. Thank you, Squibs! As we write this we are saddened to hear of the passing of Linda Millman, another Canadian dog person taken from us too soon. Condolences to the Millman Family. That’s it for now in the True North.

required stay exercises made me rethink my goals for her. Agility turned out to be the sport for her and she’s currently working on her second MACH. She’s been the #1 AKC agility Buhund for consecutive years,” said Diane Lange. One thing that Mazzotta has learned during the three years she and her dogs have been doing dog sports is that every sport is harder than it looks. “Every sport requires training and practice to do well. Both of my dogs are quicker studies than I am and are usually able to do what I ask once I figure out how to ask them. I have had to learn to keep every aspect of an activity fun and remaining connected with my dog every single moment. Fun is the name of the game and the dogs don’t know whether we’ve qualified or not let alone whether our ribbon is blue, red, yellow, white or green. All they know is that they’ve gone into a stressful situation, done their best to follow my instructions and earned a lot of praise and cookies. With Moka, when we started competing, I was overly enthusiastic and entered in multiple events–obedience, rally, agility–at every trial. That proved to be too much for Moka and he made it clear that he didn’t want to continue trialing by running out of the ring. Taking the hint, I canceled our trial schedule for several months before we went back. In the interim, I had to learn once again to make it fun for Moka and I instead of it being a chore. This is not a breed that responds to heavy drilling of skills. For them it is like ‘I’ve got this! So, let’s go have fun with it.” One of the problems with a relatively rare and new-to-the-AKC breed like Buhunds is the difficulty in finding trainers in the performance sports that are familiar with the breed. “This is a problem and there are some trainers who try to ‘forcefit’ certain techniques that are not appropriate for Buhunds,” said Tata. “My training style is probably differ96 Dog News

Sookie (Ch Kyons Vesle Bon Temps OA AXJ SPJ ), one of Diane Lange’s Buhunds, had to be convinced that it was necessary to stand still in the show ring for the judge’s exam instead of trying to make a new friend by hugging and kissing the judge. (Rich Knecht Photo)

ent from that of many others. I think of all training as teaching fun tricks using shaping. Whenever we try a sport or activity, I like to break it down into tiny chunks and teach each chunk as a fun trick. But, every dog is different. My younger dog is very sensitive, especially to sounds. This can make it difficult to train and show at times. AKC agility trials, for example, tend to have lots of people and dogs and are very noisy. He tends to get stressed in this environment and he may shut down. So, we’ve been going to CPE agility where the events are smaller and less noisy. We also recently tried a dog sport known as a ‘barn hunt’ since vermin hunting was part of the breed’s original work. We went to a fun match and Nemo immediately loved this sport. Right away, he identified the correct tube–the one that concealed the rat–raced under and over straw bales, picked up the tube with the rat and tried to figure out how to open it. Kinzi, on the other hand, did not show a strong inclination to ‘get the rat’ possibly

because she is a certified therapy dog and has been trained to be calm around all kinds of animals. So, we had to devise another technique for her. What worked was using a clicker to get her to point to the correct tube and then bark as a signal. My dogs have always had a strong prey drive and what that meant was that we didn’t have to train at all for the dogs to be successful in lure coursing. I just took them to the field and the moment they saw the lure, they started barking and going crazy. When I took their leads off they raced after the lure and had a wonderful time. But, I should mention this is not true of all Buhunds. I know a few that do not have a lot of interest in lure coursing.” Lange noted that when things go wrong, she breaks down the skill. “Then I provide profuse rewards for the correct behavior. When they improve, I add distractions or difficulty to build up their confidence and challenge their understanding. However, this is true of every sport except herding. There my Buhunds seem to know so much more instinctively about the sheep or the ducks than I do so in that sport, I’m actually their student. Performance sports take years of training. Agility, for example, has so many facets. First there are the obstacles, then the handling and everything has to be maintained to remain competitive. We do have to be vigilant however that we stay close to the original standard and purpose of the Norwegian Buhund. It is also important that breeders be honest with prospective Buhund owners. This is a barking, digging, shedding busy dog that loves to chew. They need daily physical and mental activity. The Norwegian Buhund is a lot of dog in a mid-sized package.”

Rare Breeds of the World Continued FROM page 69

The Podengo is an intelligent, lively and hardy dog. They are courageous and obedient making them excellent guard and watch dogs. Their accurate scenting capability is important for hunting, and besides for all working capabilities this is a great and popular companion dog, very popular in the Portuguese family life. Recently Dog News published a beautiful report of Sarah Poole about the Inaugural Show of the Portuguese Podengo Pequeno of America Specialty. This is the first year AKC recognized this lovely breed’s small variety, which in fact beside the coat differences is divided in three sizes: Small=Pequeno, Medio=Medium, and Grande=Large*. The FCI accepts the small and medium varieties and they are judged together, but does not mention the large variety. In the effort to enlighten myself and our dear readers about the whole breed, I decided to talk with the President of the Podengo Club of Portugal, who is a true Gentleman, and a very serious, dedicated, and knowledgeable Podengo breeder. The Clube Portugues do Podengo was established in Estoril (Cascais) about 30km from Lisbon. The clubhouse has also a large training camp in Sobral de Monte Agraço (50 km from Estoril and Lisbon) serving as a locale for dogs and owners (hunters as well) to study, educate, and exercise. The main intention is to preserve the original functional capabilities, because the country has a great group using the dogs during the hunting season as their help. (Many FCI countries only concede the International Championship title for dogs that are tested and proved capable to execute the original function, hounds, terriers, working and shepherd dogs in general although this is not the case with the Portuguese Podengo). To obtain better information I contacted and was very kindly attended by Dr. Vitor Veiga, founder, first member and president of the club, a position confided to him 25 years ago until today. The fact is that Dr. Veiga, a lawyer in the private life, dedicates himself to energizing and including more and more activities viewing the best possible future for the breed. In his words: “In the 25 years in office, my main concern is to maintain the multiple actions related to Podengos not only in the homeland but around the world as well. It is important to keep the fanciers attention for the proper function necessary for every breed, but especially for the ones selected for hunting. The club members attend at least six 98 Dog News

Open Shows for Podengos of all varieties, one Speciality Club Show (usually held in June), besides the several all breed shows under the banner of the Clube Portugues de Canicultura. The largest number of registrations is the Podengo Pequeno, (rough coat), but the most popular in Portugal is the medium “Podengo Medio” especially the smooth coat Dr. Vitor Veiga variety. Besides the mediums with registry, there is even a larger number without it, living with hunters, who unfortunately do not show interest in any other, beside the hunting associations where documents on the dogs are not required.

LettersTo The Editor WHERE WAS THE AKC? I attended the Philadelphia shows last weekend and made an observation that is disturbing. This show gets an enormous amount of spectators and being it is one of the only remaining benched shows, offers the public an opportunity to see breeds and talk to exhibitors and breeders alike. The show also has various demonstrations that are mostly geared to the general public. Overall I think it is well run and does a lot of good for our sport, not to mention it is aired right after one of the most watched events on TV, The Thanksgiving Day Parade. Matthew, the disturbing issue is that the AKC had no presence there, not a booth, nothing. I would think that with them saying they want to be in the publics eye, they would use this opportunity to be at a show with this large amount of spectators. Why weren’t there representatives there, why wasn’t an AKC booth set up at this show? Was everyone from Madison Ave and Raleigh away? Do they not think this show important? Are there conflicts between AKC and this club? What a waste of an opportunity to get their word out especially right before the holidays when so many people consider adding a puppy to their family. It was quite evident to folks that the AKC had no representation there, what a shame. Honi Reisman Baldwin, NY

law to back his claims with the exception of citing an Executive Order I will address later in this letter. While I don’t know of anyone who has actually seen the proposed suit, the theories presented in public forums were that the new regulations failed to comply with Executive Order 12866 and that the USDA failed to comply with rule making procedures required by the Administrative Procedure Act and the requirements of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act during the rule making process. The first claim pertaining to the Executive Order needs no further review than a complete reading of that particular document. The claim is the new regulations were so complicated and confusing that they violated section 1 of the order, it requires further review. Section 1 of EX Order 12866 states, “Each agency shall draft its regulations to be simple and easy to understand, with the goal of minimizing the potential for uncertainty and litigation arising from such uncertainty.” However, a further reading of Executive Order 12688 shows in section 10 of the Order reads “...The Executive order is intended only to improve the internal management of the Federal Government and does not create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or equity by a party against the United States, its agencies or instrumentalities, its officers or employees, or any other person”. In Alliance For Natural Health v. Sebelius, 775 F. Supp.2d 114, the court said citing section 10, Executive Order 12866, entitled “Judicial Review,” “the plaintiffs may not sue for any alleged violations”. Also citing, Trawler Diane Marie, Inc. v. Brown, 918 F. Supp.921,932 (E.D.N.C. 1995), aff’d, 91 F.3d 134 (4th Cir.1996) (Executive Order 12866 does not permit private lawsuits to challenge an agency’s compliance). What that means is even if the order is violated

AN INJUNCTION OR NOT? To the AKC parent clubs and Regional Clubs, I voiced my concerns about the proposed lawsuit against the USDA last week and suggested the lawsuit against the USDA was not likely to be successful and at the least, needed more work and preparation if it were to go forward. I reported my conversation with the attorney identified as the one volunteering his time drafting all the paperwork. I reported that based on that conversation, he may not have seen or read some of the cases that applied to this set of circumstances and that the action may not be well prepared. I also claimed it was illconceived. One week ago, the reports from a group spearheading the efforts to file an “injunction” indicated that this case had to be filed before the new regulations went into effect. That was also the public opinion of the volunteer attorney prior to Monday’s announcement. The pleas for groups to sign on as plaintiffs and groups and individuals to send money were urgent. Money needed to be to the group by the 14th of November so the action could be filed on time. On Friday we learned that urgency wasn’t as urgent as claimed. Monday we also found that the group orchestrating this lawsuit, or maybe the group’s hired lawyer, agrees with my assessment of last week, that court documents might need some work and preparation. This announcement included a statement that DC attorney hired will work with the volunteer attorney to get them ready. The legal theories presented in public forums by the volunteer attorney as the basis of this proposed lawsuit are weak and lack an understanding of administrative rule making procedure. The attorney championing this cause has publicly challenged the AKC to take up this case in a blog article published “Life always offers you a second chance... last September and cited various legal It’s called tomorrow.” theories as his basis without citing any 102 Dog News

by an agency in the rule making process, the court has no authority to review a case based on those grounds. ​The other legal theory proposed was that the USDA failed to conduct an adequate assessment required by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA). The attorney does not claim that the assessment on small business wasn’t done, he claims it wasn’t done adequately, mores specifically he believes the USDA did not convene a small business advocacy review panel during the or before the rule making process.. In NATIONAL ASS’N. OF HOME BUILDERS v. E.P.A., 682 F.3d 1032, the US District Court of Appeals for the DC circuit examined a similar argument and rejected the claim with the following analysis. ​But the RFA renders this kind of claim unreviewable. Section 611(c) of the RFA provides that “[compliance or noncompliance by an agency with the provisions of this chapter shall be subject to judicial review only in accordance with this section.” 5 U.S.C. § 611(c) (emphasis added). Section 611(a)(2) grants this court “jurisdiction to review any claims of noncompliance with sections 601, 604, 605(b), 608(b), and 610.” 5 U.S.C. § 611(a)(2); see id. § 611(a)(1). The section further provides that “[a]gency compliance with sections 607 and 609(a) shall be judicially reviewable in connection with judicial review of section 604.” Id. § 611(a) (2); see id. § 611(a)(1). Conspicuously absent from these lists of reviewable claims is a claim alleging noncompliance with section 609(b) — the provision that requires the convening of small business of noncompliance with sections 601, 604, 605(b), 608(b), and 610.” advocacy review panels. Accordingly, as we held in Allied Local & Regional Manufacturers Caucus v. EPA, this court “has no jurisdiction to review challenges” to an agency’s compliance with that section. 215 F.3d 61, 80 n. 21 (D.C.Cir.2000) The claim that the appropriate panels were not engaged in the rule making process falls short in light of a clear reading of the applicable statute and the court rulings in similar actions. That claim is based on a perceived violation of a 609(b) requirement. The USDA can survive judicial review by complying with the 609(a) requirements which include a notice and comment period. The USDA did that in promulgating these rules thus complying with the requirement. Section 609(a) lists a number of ways an agency can comply with the SBREFA including the process of notice and comment which was undertaken here. Without addressing some issues of weakness in standing for pursuing this claim, and only based on an analysis of relevant law on the two legal argument posed by those promoting a lawsuit, it is my opinion that such an action will fail. While it is only my opinion, I believe it is supported by case law and the controlling statutes. If the suit fails, it would be a blow to the credibility of the residential/hobby/ show breeders. Our position politically in challenging the reintroduced PUPS legislation could be jeopardized by a very public loss in the courts. ​Even if this suit were to win, which is not likely given the state of the law at this time, what would the plaintiffs buy for their investment of treasury, time and energy? If the suit were successful and implementation were delayed while the requested study was accomplished, or the process restarted doesn’t mean the final result would be any different than what we have today. Just as possible is that those who believed the regulations didn’t go far enough would also have an opportunity to have their voices heard again. There are no guarantees of a different outcome and some risk of a worse one. I don’t believe this is the best course of action for the reasons stated. We are facing a new challenge on the horizon with the reintroduction of the PUPS legislation. Lobbying after a defeat in the courts could prove problematic. And the disappointment of such a loss could reduce the activism we need to keep pressing on. Fighting for the sake of fighting serves no legitimate purpose in the long run.

Netherlands Bull Terrier Club & Country Competition Continued FROM page 81

I

had heard about the show in Holland for so many years and everyone in Bull Terriers assured me that I would enjoy it greatly. It does not take a lot of coaxing to persuade me to attend any Bull Terrier show. I made the hotel reservation back in the early spring since I feared the Holiday Inn in Leiden would sell out. Since the show is held right in the hotel, I did not want to miss being surrounded by Bull Terriers for the four days I would be in Leiden. Luckily from Newark there is a direct flight to Amsterdam. Leiden is only 23 miles from the Amsterdam airport. Several days before leaving I spoke with Franne Berez and Jan Dykema and found out they would be on flights arriving just slightly later in the morning than my flight. Jan had secured a driver and van from the airport to the hotel. Although there would be five of the ladies already, Jan felt I could probably ride with them. I figured I

Of course we spotted a Bull Terrier in an Amsterdam Flower Market!

could always get a cab if there was no room for me. Since I was not judging I did not investigate how the show would run. I only knew the Trophy show would take place on Saturday with an entry of about 250. There would be several rings running at the same time and the only one judging that I knew was our own Mary Remer. Sunday fourteen different countries would bring a team from their home. The teams would consist of four males and four females and they had to be of different ages. The dogs would be judged individually and the judges would not know which countries they were representing. Wednesday we were scheduled to depart Newark at 5:40 PM. Due to tailwinds our flying time would have us arriving in Amsterdam before 7:00 AM. Because of the noise factor of planes they do not allow planes to land in Amsterdam before 7:00 AM, so we delayed our departing time to arrive after 7:00 AM. Upon clearing immigration I very quickly started to see several BT fanciers from the AUS. Seeing some of the Americans, I immediately became very excited about the next four days. Franne Berez, Jan Dykema, Mary Remers, Heide Clayton and Cindy Parrot were all arriving shortly after I did and I was to ride with all of them to the hotel. Due to the larger number of arriving flights they had a rather longer line to clear immigration. Around noon we reached the Holiday Inn in Leiden, the host hotel and show venue. After settling in, unpacking and freshening up, we were ready to start touring. We decided to walk into the center of Leiden. It was about a half hour walk and we got to see the lovely residential area before entering the city center. Leiden is a small, charming city about 25 minutes by train outside of Amsterdam. Around four o’clock we decided to find a charming little place to get a snack and liquid refreshment. This was very welcomed since I had passed on eating the terrible airplane food. After our short snack

we renewed our walking tour. It was decided that we would also walk back to the hotel instead of taking a cab, which had been the plan when we departed the hotel. Reaching the hotel around seven, I was ready to hit the bar and get off of my feet. Upon entering the bar many exhibitors from all over the world were greeting old time friends. Having such a late lunch we decided to have a light dinner from the bar food that was available in the Ocean Bar. This enabled us to spend more time with friends. Most of the exhibitors that could drive would not arrive until Friday. After our much needed good night’s sleep we were off to spend the day touring Amsterdam. Knowing the day would consist of walking, walking and more walking, we opted to take a taxi to the train station. It was about a half hour ride on the express train to the central Amsterdam station. Our first attraction was to see the great museum. Franne Berez, knowing the city so well, was able to figure out which train we would take to the museum area. We spent about three hours in the great museum, but did not get to see it all. Walking in the direction of the flower market, Jan was finally able to locate a Coke with ice. I guess having McDonald’s in foreign lands has some benefits. Next pause was a slice of pizza for Jan and me. Mary and Cindy and Franne opted for Ben & Jerry’s. I was so relieved when we sat down while Heide ordered some fries at a frites shop. The walk to the flower market took us past some very interesting shops and coffee houses where pot and other drugs are legal. We went past two very beautiful hotels on the canal. We wanted to stop for a drink, but because of time restraints we walked briskly onto the red light district. It was now around 6 PM so the beautiful red lights were glowing in the dark. This famous world attraction has to be seen after dark to appreciate the wonderful atmosphere the red lights offer. The first shop window I came upon had a very beautiful young girl advertising her services. Taking a closer look she also had male parts. The ladies had not noticed, but then I called them back to see more. It is fascinating to see the gentlemen bargaining in the doorway about the prices for different services. I learned the ladies pay 150 euros per day in rent for their small cubicles. That is roughly a little over $200 per day rent or $73,000 per year. It was interesting when the girls were not performing their service they would be standing in the window texting or talking on their cell phones. We would like to have enjoyed dinner in Amsterdam, but promised Mary we would be back at the hotel in Leiden by 8 PM. Hans Konings, show chair, was meeting Continued on page 111

Netherlands Bull Terrier Club & Country Competition Continued FROM page 109

with all the judges to explain the procedure of judging on Saturday. Leaving the red light district around 6:30 PM, we walked briskly to the train station to make a 7:01 PM express train to Leiden. When we arrived in Leiden about 7:35, I was so pleased that it was raining very hard. This meant we took a taxi back to the Holiday Inn. After a long, long second day of walking, I was thankful the bar was not a long walk from my room. By around 8 o’clock Friday evening, the lovely Ocean Bar was full of Bull Terrier lovers from countries I do not even know where they are located. Besides the forty or so Americans, I was pleased to see so many British friends I see often at Silverwood. I did not realize the show also had a Mini Bull Specialty until I met friends in the bar. I was so surprised to run into Hanne Winninge from Sweden. Hanne has a brindle Mini Bull bitch that has done tremendous winning all over Europe. Three years ago in November I judged the last big show of the year in Denmark. I awarded this super bitch BOB and also the Terrier group. This beautiful bitch known as “Bacon” became the first Mini Bull to win a group in Denmark. The following summer I watched her go BOB in great competition at the World Show in Paris. Hopefully Hanne will someday bring her to the US to let the Mini people see this bitch who drips in quality. I got to finally meet so many legends in the breed. I was especially pleased to finally meet Russell Lamonby of the “Emred” kennels of England. Through the years I have judged so many “Emred” bred dogs. His “Emred Hunstman” has produced some of the best dogs in the US right now. Our Silverwood winner this year is a “Hunstman” daughter. Earlier this year I gave BIS to a son in Mexico. “Huntsman” was our Stud Dog Trophy winner for 2012. This dog has influenced the breed so much on both sides of the pond. The Ocean Bar also offered very good bar food for us walkers who passed on taking the time for lunch. Luckily last call was midnight since judging would start at 9 AM. For the hearty one could order a bottle of wine or two to share with friends in the lobby. After walking for two full days and a bit to drink, I fell into bed without remembering to remove my glasses, which I could not find in the morning. When the maid cleaned the room she found them under the covers and placed them on my pillow. Around 7 AM Saturday morning I

Exhibits at the Rijks Museum

awakened and prayed I would be getting about six hours more sleep. Opening my eyes I was saddened to realize no more sleep was to be had. The adrenaline kicked in quickly when I knew the great show would start in two hours. I pulled on a pair of jeans to go outside for a smoke. Out in the parking lot there were so many wonderful Bull Terriers moving in different directions, my head was spinning in all directions. I was getting a preview of so many great dogs I would see in the ring shortly. After showering and dressing I passed on breakfast to walk around outside, with coffee in hand, to get a glimpse of all the arriving dogs. Judging started promptly at nine and there were two rings for the Bull terriers and one ring for the Mini Bulls. There were only about 30 Minis so I watched all of them knowing the first classes of baby big ones would not finish before Minis ended. Like in the States, the Minis were a mixed bag. There were some very good ones, but not tremendous depth of quality. They were not as strong as they were at the World Show in Budapest. There were four judges for the Standards. Angela Goodwin and Chuck Wannop, both from the US, did the puppies and babies. Jannie Lubbe from South Africa did dogs and Mary Remer of the US did bitches. Having 248 dogs to be judged in two rings meant for a long day. Each dog had to have a detailed critique so it is a great deal more time consuming than our shows. Mary said she wanted to mention all the great strengths so many of the bitches possessed. Mary had about 75 bitches to judge and with the lengthy critiques, did not finish the bitches

until around 6:30 PM. Judging this depth of quality is very taxing mentally. Just watching I was exhausted just casually viewing and my mind was racing comparing dogs. The BOB was decided between Jannie, who did dogs, and Mary, who did bitches. Victoria Filatova was the referee judge if needed. After a very lengthy comparison and discussions between Jannie and Mary it was obvious they were in a disagreement over who should be BOB. The ringside was surprised when the referee was not called upon to make the choice. After discussing and removing the dogs, the winning male was declared BOB. Since it was nearing 7 PM, the banquet was moved to 8 PM. This gave everyone a short time to change and maybe grab a very quick cocktail at the bar. The banquet had 258 guests and the hotel did a fabulous job catering it. On one room off the main room the appetizers were set up and later the desserts were offered there also. On the opposite side was the bar and where they set up the entrees buffet style. The food was surprisingly good for hotel catering. The cost per person was 35 euros so with 258 people plus the money spent on alcohol it was a lot of income to the hotel. Most banquets are so boring at Nationals. Those are full of speeches, awards, etc., etc. Not here. No speeches, but great entertainment. They had a wonderful disco band and people danced all night to the great music. The regular bar in the hotel closed at midnight, but the banquet bar stayed open until 3 AM. Since judging would not start until 11 AM on Sunday, a lot of people wanted to party as late as possible. Before I went to Leiden I wondered why the show would not start until 11 AM on Sunday. When I awakened around 9 o’clock, I was very thankful judging was not until 11. Sunday was the most unique show probably in the world today. It was comprised of 14 different countries entering a team. Each country was allowed to enter up to 8 dogs. There were four classes – males under two years of age; males of two and the same for bitches. There were three judges for this competition – Victoria Filatova of Russia, Yvette Caprino of the Netherlands and Keith Goodwin of the UK. Each judge can place the dogs in the class one through eleven. Their first place gets a score of 12. The second place receives a score of 10 and so on down to the eleventh placement getting one point. The reason the second place gets 10 instead of 11 is that it gives added weight to each judge’s first pick. The total score of the eleven placing dogs of each judge are added up and the country with the most points is declared the winner of that class. In the first class of males under two, Continued on page 113

Hungary had two dogs with large points. One dog had 12, 10, 12 from the three judges for a total of 34 points out of a possible 36 points. Another Hungarian dog scored 10, 4, 6 or 20 points. These two dogs gave Hungary 54 points in this class. The United Kingdom had one dog at 9, 10, 9 totaling 28 points and another scored 8, 1, 12 for 27 points. This gave the Brits 55 points so they won this class by 1 point. The next two classes were also won by the United Kingdom with Hungary also scoring well. When it came to the last class the Hungarian team could still have won if they scored very high and UK did not. The last class also went to the UK team. With the UK winning all four classes with high scores, they were the winning team for the second year in a row. The team competition lasted until 6:30 PM so it was a long day with only a very short break after the first two classes. When the United Kingdom was declared the winner the ringside went wild with the Union Jack being waved throughout the hall. In the spectacular opening ceremony the first team to enter under the spotlights was the UK. The cheering was tremendous for this team. Hungary has to take great pride in being the runnerup in tremendous competition. Several other countries had a wonderful team of dogs also. There was one Spanish dog that scored very well. This dog, “Lord Bull Larry,” had won the huge non-champion class the day before. I had seen this young white dog score big at the World Show in Budapest. He was best junior in the Terrier group at the World Show. I was so pleased that people I admire felt the same way I do about him. This dog should have a great career competing in any country in the world next year. I cannot express how exciting these two shows were for me. It was the joy of Christmas, Halloween, etc. all rolled into one - two full days of watching super dogs.

Hans Konings has to be congratulated for organizing an event that gives such great pleasure to so many people from all over the world. This show requires a mammoth amount of detail. The staff of the Holiday Inn went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Purina was the official sponsor. The people who have to be thanked most are the exhibitors who brought top dogs from all over the world. There probably is more depth of quality in Bull terriers than any other breed. Sorry to say, they do not partake at most all-breed shows. Here in the US entries are extremely small at most shows. The KC champion title is not very important. The breeders are interested in achieving the ROM title. Roughly 25 weekends a year, Specialty Clubs hold ROM shows. A dog has to win two 3-point ROM shows plus four more ROM points for a total of ten to be a ROM show. So many ROM shows do not get the large required entry to qualify as a 3-point ROM. Not all breeder judges can award ROM points and only three non-breeder judges can award ROM points. I felt anointed when I was invited to be on the ROM list. Although my interest in the breed goes back fifty years, I have been a constant student for the past twenty plus years. Being able to see the best Bull Terriers and discussing them with so many of the best breeders in the world was a great learning experience. Many of my colleagues go to Sivlerwood once to get credit to apply for the breed. Many are quick learners and feel confident after one visit to Silverwood. Each time I attend I continue to learn more and more. Sunday evening several friends went to a wonderful restaurant in Leiden. This was our first top meal while in Holland. It was such a pleasurable evening of great food, fine wine and super company. During dinner word came in that at home a judge withheld select bitch at a show. After several attempts the name of the judge could not be known. Several of the parties

“I cannot express

how exciting these two shows were for me. It was the joy of Christmas, Halloween, etc. all rolled into one - two full days of watching super dogs.”

at dinner knew who was competing and they were of top quality. Supposedly the judge withheld on minor mouth faults. This outraged several guests who pointed out the average judge cannot judge the breed properly. Not knowing who judged it made me realize they were not mentored by any of the top breeders. I am not condoning mouth faults or gay tails, but if one wants to judge this breed with any respect they have to learn to be a bit forgiving in these two areas. For example, the Poodle standard says a gay tail is a major fault. If one wants to be a good Poodle judge one has to learn to be a bit forgiving in this area if the rest of the Poodle is of top quality. It takes a lot of conviction on the part of a judge to withhold especially since the AKC will even question us when we withhold selects. The feeling is – do not chase people away from the sport. It is difficult for judges to withhold on any level. The incident in question is a good example. One of the bitches in question is a superior quality bitch and will do extremely well at ROM shows. She is owned and handled by a novice exhibitor. After this incident I am sure she will never want to show to an all breed judge again. Also the top breeders in that area will be reluctant to show to the judge, whoever it was. Talking with several of the top breeders of England, I asked if England had some all round judges that judged Bull Terriers well. They stated a couple of names, but felt it was less than a handful. Here in the States we have to be thankful for the legendary “Rufus”. Because of the tremendous winning he did, more and more judges took some interest in the breed. In order to be a student of any breed, one first has to have an interest in the breed. In school I did well in subjects that interested me and failed in subjects I had no interest in. I believe this holds very true in judging dogs. I am already looking forward to returning to this unique show next year and have blocked my calendar not to accept a judging assignment anywhere. Many Americans found dogs they will incorporate into their lines. As stated earlier the top sire in the US is the “Huntsman” who resides in England. His son, “Ch. Tulsadown Abi Albon,” an English bred dog, was number two sire in the States last year. The great “Rufus” was sired by frozen semen from a German dog – a truly international breed. Dog News 113
