Just saw a blurp on the Today Show for the BBC Documentary call "Pedigree  
Dogs Exposed"  .... on BBC tonight
 
   
This is the documentary that The Kennel Club of Great Britain assisted the  
BBC in making that then completely panned pure bred dogs.  It caused  
Pedigree to drop its sponsorship of Crufts and it has caused The Kennel Club to 
 
demand the re-writing the standards for a number of breeds.  They are on  
the case of the English version of the GSD because of "crippled rears" ,  
slopping toplines, double-handling.
They may stop issuing challenge certificates for our breed, which would  
mean no new champions.
 
This documentary was largely influenced perpetrated by animal rights  
activists to portray breeders and pure breds in as bad a light as  possible.  
Carman Battaglia has warned us that it would come to the U.S.  and that it 
would have seriously bad effects upon our sport.
 
A lot of GOOD, positive P.R. is going to have to be done to counteract this 
 program.
 
Fortunately the Today show, which preview this, seems to be in favor of  
pure=breds and dog shows.
They often showcase dogs and shows in a positive light.  Perhaps  someone 
can get them to present breeders in a positive point of view.  
 
Do you honestly believe that mongrel dogs don't have health  problems???  
Of course they do.  Except their owners just throw them  away in some manner 
or another.
 
Do watch this program - But be thinking of how to counteract it.
