Annie has passed
Anne Rogers Clark passed away last night

Anne Rogers Clark
As some of you know, Annie is on the brink right now as she's suffering from kidney failure and is refusing dialysis. She's remaining one tough old bird and is hanging on, but the future is a bit bleak.

For those of us who have had the opportunity to show to her or see her judging at Westminster and other shows, we know that we are about to lose a legend as an exhibitor (first female to win Westminster), breeder (Rimskittle dogs owned non-sporting), judge (first to judge all groups and BIS), and historian ("Annie on Dogs", among numerous speeches at breed clubs).

I didn't exactly have a pleasant experience showing to her. She withheld WD and RWD from me in Duluth back when I was just starting out after gruffly mauling my dog. I'm thankful it wasn't the first weekend I was showing -- I'd have never come back (as is, it took me 2 months to go back to a show and six months to get another point). A few years later, I was waiting for the photographer to set up so I could get a shot with my Aussie girl, who at 14 1/2 had earned her first Rally leg. Annie came up from the Best in Show ring with a gorgeous Boxer she had pulled from the classes and I let her go in front of me. She looked down at Pockets, who was an old school Aussie when she was whelped and said "We old girls have to stick together". Pockets lunged at her (and privately got a big reward for that) -- she didn't like being called old!

Anyone else care to share memories of Annie?

Attention Dog Lovers - Dog Auction in Wisconsin
Our club recently received information about a dog-auction that will be taking place THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14th. There will be a large number of dog breeds represented. We have confirmed that there will be Bernese Mountain Dogs auctioned as well. As of today, we are aware of 2 females and 2 males (all 3 years of age or older) Bernese Mountain Dogs that will be auctioned.

We need YOUR help!

We are encouraging ALL people to call and/or write the newspaper (Tradin' Post Times) that is advertising this event. And also to show up at the auction itself to protest the selling of companion animals to the highest bidder.

The Indianhead Kennel Club is running an ad opposing dog auctions, but the Tradin' Post (a regional weekly ad flyer) will not allow a counter-ad to be run specifically objecting to another ad they are getting paid for.

You can voice your opposition to this auction ad currently running in the Tradin' Post (see quoted content below) at TPads@core.com or call them at 715-835-5050, they need to hear from you telling them why dog auctions are wrong! There are also phone numbers published in the ad copy below. Also below are links to regional newspapers and TV stations. There is a grassroots groundswell wanting to stop this auction, but it will go on, as there is no law against it.

This is quoted from the "Tradin' Post Buyer's Guide" dated Oct 3-9

"HORST STABLES - Located 3 miles South of Thorp, WI on Hwy M - Ken 715-
559-8232; Leon Horst 715-669-3136 -
DOG AUCTION - Sat. Oct 14th at 12:30 PM -
This sale consists of many top quality breeding stock of many various breeds.
All dogs must have vet health papers and rabies shot. All dogs must be pre- consgned by Friday Oct 6, 2006. Management reserves the right to reject any dog. Catalogs will be available day of sale.
Restaurant open during all sales.
Auctioneer: Kevin Frese, WI #1375 PH 715-669-5586"
Illustrations show an English Setter and a German Shepherd, but I called
715-669-3136 and a "Ruth Horst" told me there were many breeds but was
vague and said I should call back and talk to her husband Leon.
This is to take place at the auction barn about 45 miles from Eau Claire, WI
in an area with a large Amish population.

Bison retires on a high note
We went to Canada this weekend, and Bison took Best of Breed all three shows. He earned three points, but didn't make the cut in group. While this leaves him 7 points shy of his Canadian championship, he won't get an opportunity to snag them.

Bison is now retired from the conformation ring. After 3 1/2 years of showing and 91 trips around the AKC (75), CKC (3), UKC (8), and UCI (5) rings, his career as a pretty boy is over. During his career, he was placed ahead of 95 dogs and 11 bitches in his breed. He earned Best of Breed once in AKC, 3 times in CKC, 8 times in UKC (with 8 group placements -- two group 1s!), and 3 times in UCI. He earned championship titles in UCI, AKC, and UKC, and ranked #1 in breed for UKC in 2005. He'll be ranked #1 again in UKC when the rankings are updated again.

He managed to earn his CD and RE titles, as well as TDI and CGC certifications and two legs towards his U-CD while intact. He may wind up being ranked in the top 5 for AKC Novice A dogs in the breed in all three ranking systems.

We will be trying to finish off the U-CD in October, and may contemplate the CKC CD in September if Bison is not ready for the Novice Draft Dog title.

My favorite trips around the ring with him? Getting to exhibit him as a special at Nationals was great, finishing his AKC Championship was memorable, and the time I showed him stoned is "high" on the list. But that first time around the ring probably is the best of the best.

His return to the conformation ring is slated for 2009 at the BMDCA National Specialty in Oregon. Seems like a LONG time from now. He'll be just too young to show at the BMDCSEW Specialty that year by about a month.

Thank you my good buddy for a great education in showing. You've managed to be first in just about everything.

For now, he's CH U-CH UCICB Southwind TME Purple Majesty CD RE CGC TDI. And many more letters to come!

Show results!
Bison and Orca finally faced off for the title of Best in Household this weekend at the UKC show in Minneapolis. It's a little unfair at this point, since Bison was in the Champion class and is 4 years old and Orca is only 7 months old.

Bison won breed all 4 shows, and added a Group I placement this morning. It was down to him, the lab, and the toy fox terrier for Best in Show & Reserve, but the TFT took Best and the Lab took Reserve (and had taken a Reserve the day before and then took Best in Show in the 4th show).

Good weekend. Both dogs VERY tired.

The grudge match will be served in two weeks in Canada. More even terms...

Raising the monster...
I made a casual remark the other day that Bison weighed 77 lbs when he made his show debut at 33 weeks old, and that it was funny that Orca weighed that for his debut (at 27 weeks) and Panda did as well (at 7 1/2 years!).

I just went back and looked at Bison's weight. He didn't weigh 77 lbs at his first show -- he was 66 1/2. He didn't reach 77 lbs until he was around 9 months old.

Orca is projecting out to be 110-115, but I'm a bit frighted what that 9-11 month growth spurt will do to him.... we may have to enter Open classes lest we trample the other pups!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlyrpF-HbKE shows his last B-match. He was MUCH better behaved in the real AKC ring... took Best Puppy the first day, won his class the second day, and was strongly looked at for reserve on his fourth show (nothing like a 4 day show to proof a pup!)
