I think that is a rather rude assumption.  Many of us donated DNA samples of 
our dogs for the OFA data bank at the National over the last few years.  
I also donated Harley's DNA at Eukanuba last December to another research 
group.  When Diana died, I sent her veterinary medical records to the data bank 
that already had her DNA sample, so they have more info for their research.  
Dog showing IS an ego trip, but, that does not mean that those who are on that 
trip don't care about this wonderful breed.

But Morgan that would require people to get off their a**es and do something 
FOR THE BREED and not their egos.

We ran CERF testing at our CLUSTER SHOWS (ALL BREED, 4 different local Kennel 
Clubs
plus Specialty Clubs). A Certified Canine Opthamologist came in for a flat fee, 
ran the test, performed the necessary paper work) had people come in from 100's 
of miles&#65533; away. Net proceeds went to Junior handlers organization. The 
problem became because it was too successful, and everyone wanted a piece of 
the&#65533; pie. 
&#65533;
You can also run you own BLOOD DRAWS - AKC DNA, OFA DNA, THYROID, PF and all 
the genetic BLOOD DRAWS for all breeds. End of day send samples and paperwork 
to appropriate labs. All you need is a retired&#65533; Vet or donated&#65533; 
Vet and some Vet Techs (volunteers) 
&#65533;
Another idea CGC TEST and TDI TEST at your shows, These are not GENETIC but 
sure indicate how socialized a dog is.
&#65533;
FUND RAISERS are out there everywhere; you just have to think outside 
the&#65533; box ond organize.
&#65533;
AND often remind the ORGANIZERS of the SHOW, that WE are here for the BREED not 
just for pretty intertainment. The Clubs have a responsibility to the BREED - 
health and rescue, remind the OFFICERS of that and remind them OFTEN.
&#65533;
Rally and Obedience have done more intertainment wise and profitability wise 
than the AKC or LOCALor NATIONAL&#65533;KENNELS ever imagined. And yet the 
PURIST still oppose these 2 venues of great interest and profitability. The 
more people that show in some venue the more people will attend and watch, the 
more dogs available for testing, the more educated people become. the better 
understanding of the&#65533; BREEDS&#65533;&#65533;
