New UK Licensing Laws – Ball Of Confusion

F connor-licensing_bkg

I know that many of my American friends are following the great Brexit debacle with interest; a disgraceful episode still rumbling on over here three years after the result of the vote was announced, and many of you are scratching your heads in sheer disbelief at what is happening. So many have asked me, ‘What on earth has happened to your country?’
I cannot give a sensible reply; like a lot of my countrymen (well, those who live outside of London) I am equally baffled and ashamed by the pantomime unfolding all around me.

The Labradoodle Bites the Dust

F fernandez-cat_bkg

It’s been a long time comin’ but if last week is any indication, those long bleak years of anti-purebred propaganda are over. Mind you, none of it was fair–or true, nonetheless, it grabbed media attention and the dog-loving public bought into it for decades. But it’s a new day dawning judging by the incredible reaction to a recent New York Times interview with Wally Conron who, you may or may not know, invented the infamous Labradoodle back in 1988.

The AKC Canine Health Foundation Infectious Disease Topics

F coile-akcchf_bkg

I admit to feeling a source of great pride when I attend the AKC Canine Health Foundation National Parent Club Canine Health Conference. When the AKC first announced 24 years ago it was forming the Canine Health Foundation, I recall thinking it was just going to be window dressing. I didn’t even go to the first Parent Club Conference. I could not have been more wrong. And I’m proud to say I’ve attended every one since.

DOG Show, or dog SHOW?


When trying to understand the ever increasing shift in what it takes to win at American dog shows, I keep coming back to the same bunch of questions. If dog shows are about evaluating breeding stock, why must a dog “nail the free stack” from 10 feet away, regardless of the breed? Why must a dog lead it’s handler by 10 feet going around the ring, regardless of the breed? In breeds where markings do not matter, why do they?

It was great to be “back home” at the dog shows in Ft. Wayne this past weekend! I was thrilled to see so many friends that I don’t see much anymore. With an entry of almost 1100 on the largest day–which also happened to be the largest entry in the country for the weekend–the Old [...]

Chow Chow History

F CC-Chow Chow06. R.S. Moseley Ch. Windholmes Wan Lung 1897

Although dogs have been our companions for millennia, we have to guess at what prehistoric dogs looked like exactly. One thing we do know for sure, though, is the work they did. They followed the prey, drove the flocks and herds, guarded livestock and defended their owners’ property.
