The More Things Change

The days following the Westminster Kennel Club show are always a good time to ponder the sport of purebred dogs. It’s one of the best occasions of the year for people in the dog fancy, as well as the general public, to see some of the finest dogs of all breeds. It’s not unusual to hear calls throughout the year that various breeds have changed, over time, from their original appearance.

Bully Pulpit

Cyberbullying has entered our sport in many guises, tand no one is exempt from being targeted. Nowadays, everyone is fair game.

Meet the Parents

AKC’s Meet the Breeds is arguably the best event it puts on, in that it gives the dog-loving public what it craves:  approachable, well-bred, well-behaved, dogs of all breeds (including some that the public never gets to see), all in one location, where petting, hugging, and kissing <sorry, my lawyer self still cringes> are not only allowed, they’re encouraged.
