I suggest we invite him to our National...let him see this great dog in three 
venues, herding, schutzhund, and obedience...lets buy him a seat and dinner at 
the victory dinner...I'm dead serious........let him see this great dog in 
action for himself....once you see him/her  you're hooked....the best thing 
about our breed is he sells himself.....Ed

This appeared in Dr. Michael Fox's syndicated column in newspapers across
the country, including the Houston Chronicle.
Please write him and correct these erroneous statements. And if this is true
about the campaign to block legislation in Minnesota and North Carolina,
please express your views on this matter as well.
It's important we are ALL involved in supporting the GSD and educating the
public that a correct topline is essential has a purpose and hip dysplasia
has no correlation with the topline of the dog.

Dear Dr. Fox:
About German Shepherd breed standards: Today's breed has a sloping back,
which looks like the dog is cringing or has hip dysplasia. When I was a kid,
German Shepherds were a noble breed. Now they look like fearful curs.

Dear T.P.L.:
Thanks for sharing your views.
What has happened to the German Shepherds and to other purebred dogs
subjected to artificial selection for extreme "show"-quality physical traits
is both tragic and obscene.
That the American Kennel Club mounted a campaign to block legislation in
Minnesota to improve standards and inspections of instate puppy mills, and
opposed a state legislative initiative in North Carolina to limit how long
dogs can be left tied up outdoors, reveals the true colors of this industry
lobby.
