It's a new year and the GWPCA has a new president. Bill Richardson of Michigan, who along with his wife Gail raisc Wires under the SGR Kennel name. Bill and I have spoken about the many issues concel11ing this club and I feel very confident that we will see some real progress in the coming year. A Board of Directors meeting is pl31med and hopefully there will be a report in the next issue on that meeting. The B03l'd needs yom support and yom ideas on how to make this club better, let them know how you feel. If you attended the '94 Nationals Banquet or read the minutes of that meeting you already are aware that a "Code of Ethics" has been presented to the B031路d.That document, which was rather detailed and Icngthy will be reworked by the new Board. What is a "Code of Ethics", and do we need one? According to Funk and Wagnalls a "Code" is a system of rules and regulations for the purpose of ensuring adequate stmldard of practice mId uniformity in workmanship. "Ethics" is the study and philosophy of human conduct, with emphasis on the detcrmination of right mId wrong. Under the words ethics, ethical and ethic the dictionary tells you to look up the word "moral" and "morals". ]'vloral(according to Funk & Wagnalls) is pertaining to character and behavior from the point of view of right and wrong, cmd obligation to duty; pertaining to rightness mId duty in conduct. There was a long list of variations on the word, but they all had to do with right mId wrong. Most orgmlizations have a "Code of Ethics". It simply tells you what behaviour is expected of its members. And if you wish to be a member of that orgmlization you have to abide by its nues. The problem is, who decides what is ethically correct. Me? You') Who') This is a difficult mId emotional issue, but just because it is difficult does not me311that we should ignore it and hope it gocs away. With the mlimal right activists breathing down our necks we have to start policing ourselves cmdmake sure that the members of thc GWPCA are above reproach. We IIlUStprove to the public that we are producing quality 311imals mId only producing as many as there are good homes for. Give it some thought. It will happen. It has to. It's Spring and with it a llurry of Wirehair activities. Shows, Field Trials,and Hunting Tests all are available for you and your dog to participate in. If you are not a membcr of a local GWP club, you will find a list in this newsletter of a club near you. Give them a call, they will welcome you mId your dog(s) with open arms. A ncw service for om readers, we will Plint photos of specialty winners, trial wimlers or hunting test qnalifiers. The "WilUlcrs Page" will include yom dogs photo, name and the event in which he won. Each photo will cost you $20.00. Clubs arc encouragcd to scnd reports of your club events to the Local Barks colunmisl so we can tell the world. One (1) photo of your event (whether it be the winner or a gcneral interest photo) will be published free of charge, all other photos will be $15.00 per picture. (This covers the cost of the screen) Give me a call if you have any questions. We are also reviving the Breeders Index and Stud Dog index. Tlus will be printed in each issue of the Wire~News. More info1111ationand a foml for you to fill out can be found elsewhere in this newsletter. It's cheap, and it's easy. Being the editor for the Wire~News is fun, entertaining, and informative. But it's tough trying to find interesting things for you all to reacL I know I asked this before, but I'll do it again. If there are any closet writers out there who have done interesting things with your dogs, jot it down 311dsend it in to me. Wc all love to hear about the 311tiCSof our breed. Do you go to nursing homes, elcmenL:1fYschools, give puolic demonstrations, participate in outdoor shows? Have you had an interesting experience at a field trial, hunting test, show or NA VHDA event? These are just a few of the things we would all love to read about. How about a great day hunting? Leal11ed a new training teclmique? Share yom experiences with yom GWP. Apparently we have lots of Wire owners out there in doggy land who do not know how to become members of the GWPCA. MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ANYONE IN GOOD STANDING WITH THE AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB and everyone who has 311interest in the Gennan Wirehaired Pointer is invited to become a member of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America. Ph31uplets explaining tlle duos benefits are available from the Secretary Barb Hein, and we are in tlle process of working up a new fancy brochure. If you are pl31ming a litter we can send you extra copies of the Wire~ News to give to your puppy buyers, each issue has a membership application in it. If we all work to bring in just one new member our roster will grow by leaps mId bounds. Spread the word, it's up to you. That's it for now, pat thc dog mId give your better half a hug.

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Hello, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Bill Richardson, but if you are like most of us, you relate better to which dogs we own. Our couch currently holds DC SGR Silent Running CD MH (Levi), FClAFC SGR Witches' Brew (Brew) and SGR Dirty Laundry (Zack), and of course a few more for good measure. WIlen I am home, you will most likely find me out cleaning stalls and kennels orrepairing same. Weekends usually find me either at field trials, hunting tests and the occasional dog show.

I

What do think the purpose of the Gennan Wirehaired Pointer Club of America Inc. should be? First and foremost to infonn and educate our membership of tlle GWPCA' s activities and direction through our WIRE-NEWS. Bemee, in the past year that she has been Editor, has gone a long way to help bring this about. Second, to see that tlle National Events take place. The main burden for hosting the events falls on the local club, we assist in an advisory position. I want to give special recognition to all those dedicated club members who make the Nationals possible.

And last by not least THE YEARBOOK. There really is one! I have spoken to Regina Crisman on January 30, 1995 and was given the following dates: Febmary 1, the last of the copy went to the printer.. February 22 printing will be complete and ready to mail- you should receive your yearbook in March. We already have vohmteers eager to get started on the next issue. Your communicating with GWPCA leaders is vital to our abilities to carry out our responsibilities for the success of your National club. We do want and appreciate your voicing your concerns and viewpoints. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of your local and national board are listed in the front of this publication as well as the cunent directory. I am very proud to be your President and hope to be able to meet the demands and needs of the members during my term in office.

PP 2: You state "At the G\VP Specialty which \vas recently held, we did not receive any awards ...". This is not true .. \s tbe GWP Specialty Best of Breed winner, Julic received every amrrd and honor due her for the win. PP 3: Re yom not heing "infomled or asked to join the cluh". Mrs. Zaleski, you have attended GWPCA ;\;ationa1s in til(: past so, ohviously, you have heen aware of the existence of the G\\'PC\. It would be next to impossible for the GWPCA to ferret lHIt the address, inform and ask to join the GWPCA the owner of every GWP that does any winning in show, field or obedience in the United States. 1 am delighted to send infonnation and an Application for Membership to anyone expressing an intcrest in the c1uh In checking club files for the past four years, I find nothing from you in the INQUIRIES file. Actually, we would like every owncr of a Gennan Wirehaired Pointer to he a member of the C1WPCA aliliough hopefully ilie people who join the GWPCA do so because tiley love the breed and arc willing to promote its virtues, not just to make their dog(s) eligihle for dub awards. PP 4: Every application for membership in the CiWPC/\ receives favorable consideration unless the applicant is not in good standing witll the American Kelmcl Club. As for being "selective" about who received the year-end awards, Cluh members alone detennine the wilUlers thm their dogs. The dub member-owned \:Vires willi the wilUling records are the year end award winners. Frankly, I find it imcomprehensible that anyone would expect an award from a club mlless they were a member of thc c1uh. PP 5: Did .Iulie eam tile award? Had she been eligihle, Julie's record would have qualified her to receive it. She did not fail you - you failed her by not making her eligible. Why is Julie's standing published in the Wire News?

RespoIlSe from the 1()93 Trophy Chainnan After reading the 199...J. ~ational 's edition of the vVire-;\ews ] feel compelled to respond to the letters pertaining to Ch \\·indh<llen's Checry Jubilee (Julie). As the Trophy Chainnml for I (N] & 199-+, I Ivas responsible for onleJing the awards to be presented at the annual banquet. This included the plaques for field ,md shOl'· as well w; -'laster I lunter awards. Back ill 1993 I received a memo fwm the hoard stating that, dTective immediately, the club I\ould no longer be purchasing awards for non-members. After speaking with some of the board members, I was informed that the reason for implementing tllis change was the high cost of prodneing the -'laster IIuntcr tropllies as well as the increasing number of dogs aeheivillg the honor. It was hOlVcyer,to inclndc all awards given. Shonld this ehangc have been puhlished in the Wire-i'<'ews? rrobably- for that J apologize, would it have made a difference in Julie's case') Prohably not. First of all, tlleorelicaIly, non-members wouldn't bc aware of the change hecause they don't receive the \\lire-News. Secondly, I would hope that O\\ners aren't joining the club just to collect their award after they have alrcady won it. Finally, it is my understanding that "Julie" is the AKC # I (Troup Point Wirchair for 1993. eh Thomwoods True Glit was the ff 1 Breed Point Wirehair. Whell thc tropllies were to he presented I gave ~laJilyn Powell a copy of the trophy order to read from. 1 should have acknovvlcdged "Julies" acllicvement at that time, however because I didn't have her on tile list of twpllies ordered, she was overlooked. Although it was tndy unintentional, I apologize for this as well. Linda ~,lichaelisi 1993 Trophy Chairman


To The Edi tor: TIlls letter is intended to state my own personal opinion regarding the withholding of awards to non-members. But first I would like to take the time to thank all the local clubs and their members for volunteering their time and money to provide us with the specialty shows, field trials, hunt tests and trailllng days throughout the year. They give use all an arena in which to compete and without their efforts there wouldn't be champions to celebrate. I would also like to thank all the GWPCA members who, although not currently competing, choose to support the club through their membership. Without these people the National club could not afford to publish the Wire News on a timely basis. Now, with regard to Ch Windhaven's Cheery Jubilee, I would like to point out several things. First, in response to Judith Zaleskis question "why weren't we ever informed or asked to join the club')." I personally find this to be a very elitist question. It implies that "Julies" owners and handlers are somehow more important than the current 330 members of our club. It also impiies that they would have joined our club if they had known their trophy would be withheld. If all our members had this attihlde there would only be a dozen or so people and therefore no club. The National dub, as well as the many local clubs survive on the efforts of volunteers. Simply paying a yearly membership is the least that should be expected. Secondly, the existence of the GWPCA is well known by the IAleski's as well as Greg and Jane Meyers.l1ley have entered, won and receiyed multiple GVv'PCA trophies presented at specialties across the COUlltly "Julie" also found her way to our National Specialty in Califonlla 'llley knew where we were and how to find us. Juditil Zaleski states "if I were a board mcmbcr of this club I

could receive awards such as the one in question. The new rule was that only club members could receive awards. I ask cd when tlus happened and was told "not long ago". I have been a member for more thaJljust a few years and have never heard of this rule nor have I ever seen allYtiling on the rules appling to any of the awards. I have been a member of many different clubs including parent clubs and have held different offices in most of them, alld in my opilllon this one is very lacking in one importallt item, and that is keeping tile general membership informed on the actions of the board. So in conclusion, I ask the following. If the awards policy was changed, when? \Vhy do we not have a copy of the mles for receiving awards. Are the minutes going to reflect what rcally happened or will they stand the way they aI'c? Do we as a club owe the owners, halldler, and breeders a apology? Steve Crouch

l' 0 the Edi tor: As a Wirehair owner, trialer alld occasional breeder (2littcrs) in both the US and Europe for the past 23 years, I'm concerned very concerned. 'Wirehairs arc being torn in a number of very different directions by at least 4 different interest groups all professing to be interestcd in the breed. I will not claim to be as knowledgcable as many in the various aspects of tlllS breed. But, I have filllshed show and NA VHDA titles, recogluze a good dog when I see one, and have seen hundreds of dogs over the years in a dozen countries.

I would like to encourage the GWPCA and, most importaJlt, mallY of its breeders to adopt a new mission for their alumals alld breeding progranls. 'Ole GWP is a unique breed whose nanle and would be embarra~sed to withold a $25.00 trophy". I say, if I owned purpose should dictate our purpose and goals. Although I alll a dog with the accomplishments "Julie" has and didn't bother to greatly impressed when reviewing the club yearbooks and the inquire about membership in the breed club, I would be humiliated. pages of chanlpions, I am angered at the generations of line bred Every Wire-News comes Witil a membcrship application and any and in bred "body beautiful" specimens about whose field abilities onc of our members at any specialty would have gladly given them nothing is known.

***** Thanks to everyone who sent in newsletters, info and results. Without your input there could be no LOCAL BARKS. Please keep your news coming. However, as those of you who know us are aware, Bob and I have retired. The three-week trip to the Nationals last year with our travel trailer whetted our appetite for more. We are in the gradual process of cutting down on our responsibilities so eventually we can travel as the mood moves us. Doing the LOCAL BARKS column is one of the items on my list to pass on to someone new. Nothing is imminent and I will continue doing the column until a new editor volunteers. Hopefully, someone out there will leap at the opportunity. It is fun keeping in touch with all the local clubs, and you will enjoy reading the wonderful newsletters. Let Bernee know if you would like to be the next LOCAL BARKS editor. Again, thanks to all who have been so great about keeping info about your clubs' doings flowing in regularly. Your support has been greatly appreciated! Bless you! I'm sure you will continue to be as helpful to the new LOCAL BARKS editor. If your club is one of the few with no newsletter and/or no plan for submitting info for publication, now is a good time to start doing it. Your Wires, club and members deserve the recognition. For now, keep the info coming in to me. Best wishes to you all for a successful 1995! !!

Good news from OFA arrived via Bobby Applegate this month. Statistical data collected by OFA shows that concerned breeders and breed clubs have helped to reduce the frequency of hip dysplasia in 71 breeds with 500 or more submissions of x-rays. In addition, OFA' s data documents similar progress being reported from several registries in Europe. With the exception of five breeds - Boykin Spaniel, Flat Coated Retriever, Afghan Hound, Kerry Blue Terrier, <md Komondor, breeders have made great progress in reducing HD. During the years 1974-1994, the incidence of hip dysplasia has been reduced in Wires between 5060% and we rank #66 in breed risk (9.3 % dysplastic) with Bulldogs being #1 (67.5% dysplastic) and Ibizan Hounds being #100 (1.6% dysplastic). Evcn though it seems that we are in pretty decent shape let's not give up our efforts to x-ray every dog and bitch before breeding. Also, it is important to stress to your puppy buyers the importance of x-raying and the OFA to the future health of our breed.

Many pointing breeds have had dranlatic rcductions in the % of dysplaysia. Wirehaired Pointing Griffons by more than 70%, GWP's by 50-60% GSP's, Vizslas and Weims by 40-50% and Gordon and Irish Setters by 30 - 40%. We all deserve a round of applause for our concentrated efforts. BUT, they are also finding that therc are still brecders using dysplastic animals in their breeding programs. On a different note- OFA also reports that in July 1995they will add two new registries to assist breeders in identifying phenotypically nonnal dogs. One registry will bc a cardiac registry which will rely on a cardiac examination protocol that has been designed by specialists in cardiology to determine the presence of congenital heart disease. The second registry will be established to document thyroid disease. More information will be passed along when it is reccived.

According to the recent report received from OFA screening of the radiographs by the attending veterinarian, prior to submissions, appears to affect the reported frequcncy of dysplasia in each brecd. They have found that females tcnded to havc a higher frequency of dysplasia than males, although this was more significant in some breeds but not others. Unfortunately, the data provided does not break down thc numbers by sex for any of the breeds.

orA also reports that it was contacted several times by TIME Maga7ine for input on the story about AKC. Documentation was provided concerning the progress that responsible breeders have made in controlling HD. TIME chose not to use any of the documentation and printed an article which lacked objectivity and contained misconceptions. On joint laxity, and the PennHlp program, Of A is disputing the methods and findings of PennHIP. As discussed in prior issues of the Wire News the PennHIP method uses the technique of forcing the head of the femur from the acetabulum by the use of leverage. The technique, according to OF/\., is not standardized because the pressure exerted varies in each study and with each examiner. OFA feels there is a possibility that some dogs examined by the PelmHIP method may develop unstable hips and degenerative hip disease as a result of tIns procedure. According to OFA people should be cautious about the use of stress radiography until accuracy and safety have been varified.

WHATS HAPPENING AT AKC Perhaps the most significant AKC event to report is the creation of the AKC Canine Health Foundation which is starting up with a $1 million endowment. The foundation will collect and disperse contributions for clliline health research with an emphasis on genetic research. The foundations's establishment was llilnounced to the assembled AKC Delegates at their December 13, 1994 meeting and carried as an article in the January 1995 AKC Gazette entitled "The Foundatioll of Health" written by Beth Adelman. It will operate in a completely different manner than past AKC health related dispersements in that it will solicit contributions from outside tlle orgmlization llild has gained taxexempt status for tllis purpose. On October 7 and 8, 1994, the American Kelmel Club sponsored a Molecular Genetics and Canine Genetic Health Conference in Florham Park, New Jersey. A comprehensive prograIll on all aspects of carline genetic research and health was presented by 28 scientists. Organized into five major areas: Overview of Caniene Genetic Disease; The Canine Genome; Progress on Molecular Genetic Approaches to Carline Genetic Diseases (including single gene diseases, disea<;es witll complex pattcms of inheritance and catline behavioral genetics); Catlid identification and Control of Genetic Diseases. To sum up considerahle progress has been made in identifying markers for the canine genome. These markers are molecular indicators wllich ClUlhe used to find specific genes arld indicate the ability to eventually develop hlood tests for specific diseases. (rcsts for disease with a simple recessive will cost approximately $50,000 to develop; those with complex inheritance pattems will take considerable more money lUld time). Dr. Ake Hedharmnar from the Swedish Kennel Club stated that at the request of their breed clubs, they now require all sires and danls to be tested for a defect in order for atlY progeny to be registered. Test results are openly available. There is no requirement that a sire or danl "pass" the screelling, just that they are tested and the results are openly available. At tlle close of the conference, two points were particularly stressed: the need for better funding for research and the need to engage dog clubs and dog people in addressing genetic disease. (foml Persepectives, December 1994- AKC Delegates newsletter). On December 13, 1994 at the Delegates Forum - an infonnal meeting of delegates for open discussion and expression of ideas - the following took place: AKC Board members reported on tlle new procedures adopted by tlle Board for the handling of Disciplinary Actions taken by Event Committees in connection with misconduct ot events. These new procedures will take effect on Jnauary 1, 1995 lUldthe newly revised Guidelines which will contain thesc procedures is presently in production arld will shortly be distributed to all cluhs. The background behind the development of tlle new schedule of penalties was explained. The penalties under the new system will give additional flexibility and fairness in the administration of disciplinary actioll. JaIlles Smith, AKC Board Chaimlan, presented a report and fielded questions from the delegates. Most of tllese dealt with tlle

article in TIME magazine on purebred dogs. There were a number of COllUllent<; on the need for AKC - and the sport - to improve the publics's perception through such measures as establishing a special registration for dogs with genetic faults and urging AKC to back up the breeder in upholding limited registrations. There was a comment on the need of AKC to address the problems inherent in co-ownerships of dogs. Mr. Snlith indicated that tlns matter was currently under study. At the official Delegates meeting on December 13, 1994, The Abilene Kennel Club proposed an aIllendment to Chapter 3, Section 9 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows that would prohibit chaIllpions from competing in the Open Class. This aIllendment is not recommended by the AKC Board and will be voted on at tlle March Delegates meeting. At tllls meeting it was reported that contact had been make with A VMA conceming an inquiry from the office of Newt Gingrich for imput on possible mlimal-related legislation. AKC suggested legislation to remove batlS on ownerslnp of dogs in federally subsidized housing, extending tlle privileges enjoyed by seeing-eye dogs to all assistance dogs, and support of compatlion animal health research. It was also reported that AKC has produced a legislative action video which will soon be available to all clubs. The AKC has atlllounced a National Invitation Obedience Olampionship to be held in St. I -<mis,Missouri on June 17 atld 18, 1995. Dogs will be invited from each breed group as determined by AKC's OTCH point standings for 1994. The Championship will promote the following basic concepts: 1. The AKC and purebred dogs. 2. Obedience training. 3. Responsible dog ownersllip prograIll. 4. Dogs as positive elements in the world in wllich we live. Each team will be required to perform the Open and Utility exercises twice. The dog iUld hatldler will perfonn certain exercises at each of the six stations. There will be four placements in each group from the Group competition and 32 dogs will advance to the finals. On the final day, one dog will earn the title or American Kennel Club National Obedience ChaIllpion for 1995. The judges for tllis event are: John Cox (Washington), Peggy Garic (Califonlia). Melinda Giles (Texas), Jerry Iermiero (New Jersey). David Mauer (Ohio), arld Sharon Long (Illinois). For more information, contact the AKC Obedience Department. The AKC Delegates' Standing Field Trial COlIlnlittee will still consider replies from the field questiOlmaire which was Plianted in a past issue of the Wire News. The response has been very poor. At the meeting of tllls committee-which was held prior to the Delegates Meeting-ways were discussed to build a database for the listing of field trial judges. This nlight include a "thumbnail" biographical sketch of each judge as well as a fmID sent to each field trial giving club on how their judges performed at the trial. The main theme was tlle interfacing of conformation and pelformiUlce events and if there is a role for the committee in tllls area

Have you tried UKC Obedience? It is so much fun and has a very relaxed atmosphere. The differencebetween UKC (United Kennel L1ub) Novice and AKC Novice is instead of doing the long down as a group they have an honoring down. The dog does his long down individually while the "working dog" does the off leash heelling (md the figure eight The handler is across the ling like in AKC Novice but he's alone. Of course the hanDling handler hopes for a fast walking handler since this detennines how long the down will be, The handler then retullls to their dog and they are excused from thc ring. The other difference is all Novice dogs do a recall over the high jump, *Jump heights are the height of the dog or whatever is less in 2", even increments and an maXU11lumof 24", You ncver get a slow recall! In Open, the broad jump is double the height of the dog with a maxumum of 72", Along with the honoring dog, the handler goes out of sight in Open and there is also a "Random Walker", which is a steward doing the heeling pattelll backwards, So the working dog and handler has the honoring dog, the random walker, and the judge in the ring - just a few added distractions. Some other differcnccs are you can use a voice command and hand signal for the (b'op on recall and the jumping exercises. For the drop on recall a steward is on the other side of the ring so when you leave your dog you will be standing next to them. After you call and drop your dog the steward walks past your dog, and he must rcmain there until you call him again.

Utility has the biggest difference. All of the jumps are removed from the ring while each dog does his excercises. During the signal exccrcise there is an honoring dog doing a long down. The handler is across thc ring with their back to tile dog. The signal exercise can use the whole ring. Next, articles, only metal are used. Next are gloves, first the marked retrieve then the directied retrieve. 11le gloves are put in a triangle shape, number I glove to your left and half way up the ring, lllunber 2 glove at the far end in the center, and number 3 is to your far right half way up the right side of the ring. For the marked r4etrieve the judge can have you send your dog to any of these. For the directed retrieve, you send your dog out and stop him half way up the ring between gloves number 1 and 3. When dIe dog is sitting tlIe judge \vill Jo>.ick a glove (but it cannot be the same one used in dIe marked retrieve.) Not only does your dog learn short go outs but it leanls to take directions. The next exercise is the consecutive recalls, first the drop on recall and tlIen the straight recalL After this the jumps are put back in tlIe ring and directed jumping ends the class, This is done individually for each dog. UKe Obedience takes a little longer but it is fun. Try it you 'lllikc it
