Hi John -
You forgot the part where she put her hands on people, shoved them, poked
them, grabbed them and screamed in their faces.
I was told to leave on Saturday because I made the mistake of walking by her
with a bell in my pocket, which she heard as I stepped by her. Initially,
she demanded that I empty my pockets. When I refused, she told me to stand
over by the window - on the opposite side of the building - or leave. I was
told that there was a "zero tolerance policy on any noise." I went to the
window and tried desperately to see how my bitch was doing in winners. She
ended up with a Best Puppy and a PG4 while I was in "time-out."
And on Sunday, by which time the entry had dropped significantly, John
missed the piece de resistance: Our friendly REP observed what she thought
was double-handling during the open bitch class. She interrupted judging to
tell the judge about it and asked her to place that person's bitch
accordingly. The judge put her at the end of the line. This is the same
bitch that took the major the day before.

I have been busy since I returned home. Here is what I have learned:
An AKC rep CANNOT --
- put her hands on people
- demand that you empty your pockets
- request dogs be placed somewhere b/c of what she thinks is double-handling
- tell people to leave
Furthermore, there is NOTHING in any AKC rule, guideline, policy, etc., that
states a REP is responsible to squelching doubling. The only rule on the
books is in the judges' guidelines, which says it is to the judge's
discretion to deal with any doubling.

If you were the victim of any of the above, I sincerely hope you will file a
complaint with the AKC. I will be doing so today. You need to contact
Darrell L. Hayes, Vice President of Conformation events. He can be reached
at 919-816-3592 or at dlh@xxxxxxxx

The name of the rep in question is Patricia Porter Jenner. She lives in
Connecticut. Please spell her name
correctly when you complain.

According to the AKC website, she was hired in May and began work in New
England in July. She will be hear until at least July 2008. If we don't do
something now, it will be HELL until then.

And remember, she may not be in Massachusetts next time . . . it could be
anywhere in Division 1, which also includes Connecticut, Maine, New
Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Please understand that I am not in any way taking from the winners of this
weekend. We had spectacular shows with some unbelievable dogs and bitches.
The quality was tremendous. But I am very. very worried about the future of
GSD entries in the Northeast if nothing is done soon.





Again on standing while the judge was looking at my dog and the handler was
fussing with him to make him look just so, I made a slight kissing sound.
Next thing I know I have two guys standing, one on each side of me,
threatening

me with eviction if I did that again.  And the rep was 20 feet away
glowering.  So I shut up.  The dog never did raise his head at that  time
and no
more
than 20 seconds later, on standing, he was placed 2nd.   Now isn't that
special.  I almost lost it, but didn't.
