Sorry not to see you at the RIVERSIDE CALIFORNIA MEETING at which one of the worst anti pet laws were put in place by a board of five directors who had already made up their minds. I was looking forward to meeting you there!

This is Erika Judy's Daughter, I love You mom please contact me @ my email, the flame of my candle burned for you as always.

I received this letter by e-mail this morning. I have just spoken with our own Lisa Peterson of the AKC, who is head of Public Relations, and is the author of this press release. It is official...

THE AKC is WITHDRAWING from its' contract with PETLAND.

While the AKC has been bombarded by the dog public in last few weeks, Lisa pointed out two very important things for all of us.

1) Amongst all the complaints and calls, there were no suggestions or ideas offered.....
My thoughts?...let us put on our thinking caps now, and not wait for others to find the answers in future.

2) Approximately, 2 weeks ago, the AKC released a new Litter Registration Form that allows the Breeder to register both the litter and all the individuals at once. This means fewer blue slips leaving the breeder that never get registered. The form also allows for a one time name change by the initial owner from the breeder if they choose.
I think this is an extremely effective counter-measure to sagging registrations...efficient and cost effective from a paperwork point of view. I hope breeders will support and utilise this new form.

****Permission to cross-post granted from Graafin****

At the September Delegates Meeting AKC reported that we had reached an agreement with Petland in order to facilitate the registration of dogs that are already AKC registrable.
Precedence: bulk

AKC's Board of Directors and management believed that this agreement would have helped to further the mission of the AKC. Promoting responsible dog ownership to new puppy owners, implementing our care and conditions policies, and exposing more dog owners to AKC educational programs and services would have had even greater reach.

In the past few weeks we have received many comments about this agreement, both positive and negative. We have listened to the concerns and because this issue has become so divisive, we believe it is in the best interest of our sport and the American Kennel Club not to go forward with this initiative.

Ron Menaker, Chairman of the Board
Dennis B. Sprung, President and CEO
