Where Have All The Mentors Gone?

F Where have mentors gone

How often do you read The Canine Chronicle editorials? These aren’t just space savers in the magazine. Often they are steeped in the history of our sport, and you are doing yourself a great injustice if you don’t read them. Every month I read one or two editorials that make me wonder, where have all the mentors gone? You know, the great ones–the breeders, judges, and handlers that have done it all. The people that would give you, like it or not, unsolicited advice in the ring, or while you were grooming your dog. The ones with no filter. The ones that made you shake in your shoes. If you did something wrong, they would say, “Hey, what are you doing? You know better than that!” and explain to you why it’s wrong and what to change. If you got it right, they would give you a compliment, but usually in a much more subtle way.

From The Publisher

NEWS

Ihad a conversation with a good friend I greatly respect when it comes to knowledge of dogs. Although the background of this person is sporting and hounds, I really think he is one of the more well-rounded dog men I have known, whether still living or dead. He’s someone I would let pick a dog for me to start a breeding program.

The Great Ones – Pekingese Ch. Chik T’Sun of Caversham

F The Great Ones

Have you ever stood at ringside and felt the hair on your arms stand on end as you watched an unknown dog move around the ring? Has a certain dog literally taken your breath away, as its superb breed type oozed from its every pore while gaiting past you?

A Culture of Questioning Integrity Instead of Knowledge

F Culture of Question

As a wise man from north of the border once said: “judging is not a matter of sharing our opinions, it’s a matter of sharing our knowledge.” When those of us who have been in the sport all or most of our lives take on the responsibility to judge, we don’t take it lightly. There is an expectation that judges have decades of knowledge stored in their mind and reflected in their eyes. They should have serious experience and the willingness to continually learn. Their knowledge should be earned, processed, and ready to impart. I believe that to a reasonable human extent, all of that is true. Moreover, it is a wonderful goal. How we are allowed to share that knowledge and learn more is, in my opinion, a growing concern.

We’ll Never Forget The Colonel – Jerry Weiss

F Jerry Weiss

Some judges are notorious for their prickly ring demeanor. Yes, judging is a demanding task, but it also requires a modicum of empathy for the exhibitors paying for that expert opinion. Unfortunately, more than a few novice exhibitors leave the ring, the sport, and the entire world of purebred dogs thanks to one mortifying experience in that realm. That brings me to Jerry Weiss. A casual glance at Col. Jerry H. Weiss, U.S.M.C. presiding over his ring would instantly brace anyone for the worst. He ran his ring with military precision, which was true to character. But that’s where any semblance of intimidating formality ended. Jerry greeted every exhibitor like a friend and every dog received his patient attention. Win or lose, showing to Jerry was a positive experience.
