Table Talk – April 17, 2019

SMOnlineTableTalk1-500x524

It seems to me that there is so much mean, disconnected and judgmental behavior, even among those of us who DO know each other, in addition to the lack of welcoming attitude toward the public or the “newbie”. In some cases, a short “hi” and a “walk-off” could be due to the person being busy, and that is understandable. Even if you are busy, it only takes a few seconds to say, “follow me to the ring and I’ll tell you where I am set up and we can visit in a bit later”, or “I’m sorry I am in a crunch right now, my name is “xx”, and please look me up later”.

Xylitol – It’s in Your Food and It’s Toxic to Dogs

Xylitol

“It was really shocking how many people have no idea that most sugar free gums can kill a dog.” It’s not just gum, of course. “Most people have no idea how many products contain this ingredient or the fact that a small amount can be potentially lethal to dogs. Most products that contain Xylitol have no warnings that they are toxic to dogs,”

There was a confirmed case of a dog with parvovirus at the Wichita, Kansas shows this past weekend. The show committee was extremely proactive and did their best to disinfect any areas that were possibly affected.

When I was leaving the Kentucky Expo building on Sunday, I was a bit disappointed. Several of the setups had been broken down and the exhibitors were long gone and on their way home. There was a lot of dry kibble, garbage, sawdust, hair, etc. left on the floor. Is this the image we want to leave behind to those who might not be so enthusiastic about purebred dogs? This kind of disrespect leaves a poor impression of exhibitors and gives our sport a bad name. Someone has to clean up that mess. It is sad to think that it may be necessary to walk the building upon exit time in order to police such behavior. We should all have enough pride to take a moment to clean up our grooming/crating setups before we leave. We may have to bring the Pig Pen award back, guys! (My apologies for the soap box my friends!)

I heard Jeff Wright had a bit of mishap and twisted his knee last week in Texas. Once again, others at the show stepped up and demonstrated how those within the fancy have each other’s backs. Big kudos to David Williams, Ann Ramsbottom, Matt Hawley, Sergio Espejo and Lois DeMers for stepping up and making sure that Jeff’s dogs got in the ring.

I sincerely believe that the televised shows are great for the sport and, sadly, the number of televised shows has decreased over time. Purina has done a great job maintaining a televised presence for the sport of purebred dogs

Table Talk – February 27, 2019

I was shocked to read that the Armory Art show scheduled to be held at Pier 92 in New York beginning March 7th has been relocated to alternative Piers as a result of a city inspection revealing the Pier is structurally unsafe. Pier 92 was the site for the 143rd Westminster Kennel Club breed judging just a couple of weeks ago. The parking facility on the roof of Pier 92 was closed during Westminster due to the structure’s instability. It seems now that city officials have declared the entire structure to be unsafe, not just the parking structure. It makes one wonder if this will affect next year’s Westminster breed judging?
