LINES FROM LINDA

by LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR

F or as long as I can recall, going to the Ringling Broth- ers Barnham & Bailey Circus has been an annual tradition for the Ayers family. My parents took Roy, Jr. and me and as an adult I have taken my son, Todd Turner. Todd reminds me that I kept him home from school to see the perform- ers parade the animals through Green- ville from the train station to the arena. I wrote a note to his teacher asking her to excuse his absence as he had to feed the elephants. In more recent years, I befriended a member of the Circus team and gave her a tour of our city. She then invited me to come aboard the Circus train. My heart was pounding like that of a five-year- old. My mother, Hazel Ayers, delighted as she was chosen to ride elephant one year. These experiences are memories my family will treasure forever. Now as the grand tradition of the Ringling Brothers Barnham & Bailey Circus comes to an end this month, what is next on the agenda of groups like PETA (People for the Ethical Treat- ment of Animals), the HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) and ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of

Cruelty to Animals)? These “anti every- thing we love” organizations are rapidly infiltrating where we live. We must not allow them to come into our cities and states without putting up a fight. The responsibility to preserve our rights falls directly on our shoulders. We must educate our local elected officials in all areas of government. They want our votes. We need their help! Sheila Goffe, Vice President of Gov- ernment Relations and her staff are anx- ious to help us in any way possible. In recent conversations with Sheila, I have learned some of the many new ways her department is working to protect breeders and our sport. “ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL” Our greatest asset in fighting bad legislation and introducing good public policy is our people—their expertise and their passion for dogs. Thousands of fanciers and club members devote their lives to a single breed or blood- line—and they develop extraordinary experience and expertise to accom- pany that. We need to share that in our communities. For far too long, we as individual breeders and fanciers have simply let our detractor’s lies stand.

It’s time for all of us to stand up, be proud of what we do as dog experts and breeders and educate people about what we stand for. We are on the side of science, advancing the health and wellbeing of our dogs, and our future depends on sharing that message.

There’s an old maxim that “All poli- tics is local.” Conventional wisdom tells us that all the issues that politicians deal with and all the decisions they make come down to one simple formula: poli- ticians are driven by the desire to stay in office and where possible, increase their influence. To stay in office, poli- ticians must be able to get re-elected; AKC GOVERNMENT RELATIONS DEPARTMENT NEEDS YOU GOING LOCAL

so far as to define anyone who bred and transferred even a single puppy as a “pet store” and required that “pet stores” selling cats or dogs (many as young as 8-9 weeks) to spay/neuter those ani- mals before they were transferred. “We knew about the measure because we’re in New York and it’s a big media hub and we were at least able to change the definition of pet store,” says Goffe, “but when it’s in small towns bills, these bills can become law before we even know they’ve been introduced.” AKC GR relies heavily on legislative liaisons (LLs) and other concerned peo- ple to let us know what’s happening in their communities so we can provide them with resources and help. Goffe stressed, “Being a legislative liaison for AKC GR team is one of the single most important things people can do to have an impact on anti-dog and anti-breeder legislation. “Some of AKC GR’s greatest success- es across the country are the issues that fanciers never hear about. This may be because one of our wonderful legisla- tive liaisons or an alert individual has contacted us when they’ve heard about a potential issue in their community and let us know what’s going on. Thanks to alert legislative liaisons we learn about a slew of issues in local communities and can educate lawmakers before problematic measures are put in place. You don’t have to be a legislative liai- son to develop a relationship with the AKC GR team, however. We think of ourselves as a customer service-based team. Our service is to help educate and protect dog owners and the future of purebred dogs.” That comes in the form of working directly with all of AKC’s constituents and being a conduit to help them com- municate with each other—whether its members of congress or local legis- lators who need to be educated about responsible dog owners and breeders, or whether its dog owners and breed- ers, our Government Relations depart- ment can help educate about how to get involved politically. The key is to pro- vide the facts, resources and informa- tion that dog lovers need to defend their rights, organize their clubs, friends and other groups so they can successfully educate their lawmakers and their com- munities and fight back against laws and misinformation that hurts respon- sible dog owners.

“...IT IS EASY TO GET INVOLVED LOCALLY, AND ONCE LOCAL PEOPLE DO GET INVOLVED AND SHOW HOW A KNOWN, RESPECTED MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY WILL BE HURT BY A BAD PROPOSAL, IT’S GENERALLY EASIER TO CHANGE OR DEFEAT A BAD PROPOSAL.”

and to get re-elected they must be responsive to their constituents—the people who can vote for or against them at election time. Goffe emphasizes, “This is why our advocacy as dog owners and dog experts is so crucially important if we want to preserve the right to breed, own and exhibit the dog of our choice. The AKC GR team focuses its efforts on helping clubs and individuals succeed in these efforts. “Politicians want to hear from their constituents. They are far more likely to listen to people who may actually vote for them than ‘outsiders.’ If they don’t understand that breeders and fan- ciers are their neighbors and friends and voters, they simply won’t know we exist or consider us relevant. Like- wise, the vast majority of legislators are not dog experts and unless they hear from us, we shouldn’t expect them to have any real expertise on dogs and canine issues.” One of the most significant legisla- tive trends AKC Government Relations (GR) department is seeing is an increase in anti-dog/anti-breeder legislation at the local level. In the last year, they have seen an increase in not only the number of bills, but also the sophistica- tion of legislation at the local level. Where anti-breeder bills have been defeated at the state level, it is common for animal rights and other groups with an agenda to regroup and push for the same policies at the local level. It’s easy for a measure that may seem irrelevant in a community to gain foot- hold if no one is there to oppose it. A good example is the law to ban pet stores/retail pet sales. Such measures often fly through votes in city councils if they don’t have pet stores to oppose

them or no one is paying attention. Once proposals pass in a significant number of communities, whether or not they’re actually relevant to those com- munities, it’s easy to go back to the state and argue that there’s a groundswell of support for it. Meanwhile, it’s possible that no one even bothered looking to see how the term “pet store/retail pet sales” was defined, and it could impact a lot of people who don’t think of them- selves as pet stores! In some respects, the rise in local legislation is a bad news/good news kind of situation. The bad news is that local measures are much harder for AKC GR to get information about and to track. AKC GR uses software to track legislative changes at the federal and state level, but it’s nearly impossible to track every proposal in every small community in America. On the other hand, it is easy to get involved locally, and once local people do get involved and show how a known, respected member of the communi- ty will be hurt by a bad proposal, it’s generally easier to change or defeat a bad proposal. In some states, there has even been a push through state legislation to prompt counties and cities to pass laws that restrict dog ownership at the local level. In New York State, anti-breeder groups failed in passing extreme new regulations on small breeders a couple of years ago. However, they did pass a bill that specifically encouraged the counties and municipalities to pass more restrictive breeder laws. The result was a huge upswing the following year in regressive kennel licensing and breed- er regulations in cities and counties around the state. New York City went

incredibly valuable. The LLs who go the extra mile with active commu- nity involvement are our superstars. It doesn’t take a lot of effort, but the pay- off is huge,” Sheila Goffe said. RESOURCES FOR GETTING INVOLVED It’s not always easy to take the first steps towards getting involved, so the GR team provides a wide variety of resources that can help new LLs or any interested person get started success- fully and stay involved in the process. In addition to resources for legisla- tive liaisons, there’s a special Facebook group for LLs where they can share and learn from each other’s experiences across the country. In addition, there is a wide variety of resources available online on the AKC GR Legislative Action Center microsite www.akcgr.org. AKC GR’s legislative action center is a “one-stop shop” for information and assistance on public policy issues. All legislative alerts are posted there, along with information on finding out who your legislators are, how to reach out to legislators, sample letters, issue analy- ses and talking points on key issues and even op-eds/blogs that can be personal- ized for publication in local newspapers or the internet. It also contains several video presentations that are designed for club educational meetings or pre- sentations. One of the newest and most popular ones is called “All Politics is Local”. In it, Michael Houchard shares a lifetime of experience in working with policymakers and his community on a variety of issues—including dog issues. AKC awards are designed to build awareness of and motivate community action that encourages responsible dog ownership and advances the wellbeing of dogs. There are two categories of awards. The first type includes awards that AKC presents directly to outstand- ing clubs and individuals. The Walter Bebout Memorial award for leadership in advocacy recognizes individuals and organizations that have been actively involved in educating legislators about responsible dog own- ership issues and have worked to pre- serve the rights of responsible owners and breeders. Recipient clubs and fed- erations also receive a $1,000 award to help offset the costs of their activities. The AKC Canine Legislative Support Fund Educational Grant, administered

related contacts. AKC encourages them to lead their clubs in reaching out to legislators and making sure that their club as a whole and its members get involved when AKC GR has sent out action alerts. The second part of being a LL is to let AKC GR know when there’s an issue or a proposed law in their community that AKC can assist with. This can be as simple as following the media, com- munity bulletin boards and county/city websites and Facebook pages. “Some of our most active LLs have gotten involved in canine policy advi- sory groups in their community, where they can have a direct impact and be the first to know of any issues that could become a problem for respon- sible breeders and dog owners. Oth- ers have gotten involved in the politi- cal process by becoming members of their town councils, joining their local rotary clubs and other service organiza- tions, or participating in local political party activities. All of these things are

AKC GR is urging all club and inter- ested individuals to check on whether legislative liaisons have all the infor- mation they need and whether their information is up to date with AKC’s GR Department. If your club does not have an active LL, please appoint one; or if you are interested in participating, please contact doglaw@akc.org. You can make a difference for dogs and our rights—and all you need is email and a desire to help. AKC Club-based legislative liaisons (LLs) are the direct connection between clubs and AKC GR. As the GR team increasingly intro- duces new positive legislation, LLs are on the front line of this process, too. AKC GR asks every AKC club to appoint a legislative liaison. There are two main components to what a LL does. AKC GR relies on LLs to receive GR legislative alert emails and to pass then on to all members of their clubs and their dog-

through the AKC GR department, rec- ognizes that some clubs or federation of clubs are not in a financial position to undertake the community and legisla- tive educational outreach they’d like to conduct. This program provides small grant to clubs to hold a legislative or educational day or similar activity that advances responsible dog ownership, purebred dogs and related activities in the community. The newest of these awards, the AKC Award for Outstanding Leader- ship in Canine Policy, was developed in late 2016. This award honors excep- tional commitment and leadership that positively impacts canine policy, public understanding of canine policy, respon- sible dog ownership and the future of purebred dogs. Winners of this award may, but do not have to be affiliated with an AKC club or federation. The first recipients of this award, Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Lucas were presented with their award at the 2016 AKC National Championship in recognition for their feature film, The Dog Lover , which rais- es awareness about animal-rights fueled bias and misinformation that harms responsible dog owners and breeders. AKC also sponsors awards to help dog clubs expand their community out- reach through AKC awards that clubs nominate and present to dog-friendly leaders in their community to show appreciation for their support and bring attention to the good things they do. These awards include: AKC Legislator of the Year Awards, AKC Dog Friendly Community Awards and AKC Canine Officer (K9 COPS) program. For information about any of these awards, contact the AKC GR team at 919-816-3720 or doglaw@akc.org. WHAT’S NEW FOR 2017 Starting this year, the AKC GR team is emphasizing and expanding regional outreach activities. Already this year, AKC’s first regional legislative/outreach representative has been deployed in the field to directly help constituents in the Southeastern Region of the US. Patty Van Sicklen is a veteran leg- islative analyst for the AKC GR team, based out of Birmingham, Alabama. Patty oversees legislation in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennes- see, Kentucky, Georgia and South Caro- lina. Patty works directly with individu- als, clubs, federations and legislative

liaisons in this area to facilitate legisla- tive, public policy or other policy-based community outreach and education. She can be reached at pvs@akc.org or via doglaw@akc.org. The team plans to train and place additional reps in key field positions elsewhere in the future. Based on the success of previous national conferences, the GR team is also developing series of regional con- ferences around the country to bring together key players, focus on region- specific policy issues and provide resources, strategies and tools for com- munity and legislative involvement. The GR team took the show on the road in January with an inaugural regional leg- islative conference in New England. “The new regional conference is designed to bring together club mem- bers, dog fanciers and other allied groups in a specific region to provide them with information and resources about legislative trends and proposals specifically impacting them, said Sheila Goffe. “It’s an opportunity for partici- pants to access new information and insights about national and regional trends, and to discuss how we can work together to protect our rights and the future of responsible dog ownership and breeding in the region.” Approximately 80 people partici- pated in AKC’s New England Legislative Conference in Boxborough, Massachu- setts on January 22, 2017. Participants included dog club members, dog fanci- ers, sportsmen, representatives from regulatory agencies, animal control officers, a representative from the pet industry and a pet store owner. Lively discussion about personal experiences and specific policy con- cerns followed each of the presenta- tions, which included: • “Working Together to Fight Anti- Dog/Anti-Breeder Legislation” by Sheila Goffe, AKC GR Vice Presi- dent. This presentation outlined current canine policy status, as well as trends, strategies and tactics being used by anti-breeder groups and appropriate ways to respond to the challenges. It also provided an overview of AKC tools and resourc- es and how clubs and individuals can leverage the good things they do to build rapport and good canine policy in their communities. • “Engaging Members in Effective Advocacy and Networking”

Kennel Club. The former President of the Massachusetts Federation of Dog Clubs returned to New England to share her experiences and tips for getting involved in canine advo- cacy and urged others to follow in her footsteps. • “Animal Welfare and Importation in New England—The Cognitive Disso- nance of Dog Trafficking and Anti- Breeder Policy” by Dr. Arnold Gold- man, DVM, Connecticut Federation of Dog Clubs. Dr. Arnold Goldman spoke about concerns regarding the impact of irresponsible rescues and dog trafficking on canine and gener- al public health in New England. He noted that domestic, purpose-bred pets do not present the same chal- lenges to public health. However, anti-breeder sentiment and policies have exacerbated current public health concerns. • “A Path to Community Involvement, Engagement and Club Enhancement” by Christopher Sweetwood, AKC Delegate, Trap Falls Kennel Club. This presentation focused on build- ing strong community relations using resources such as “canine carnival” public education days and AKC Reunite’s K9 programs. • “Building Relations” by Jeffrey Ball, AKC Delegate, Ramapo Ken- nel Club; President, New Jersey Federation of Dog Clubs. Jeffrey Ball highlighted how the New Jersey Federation of Dog Clubs has built relationships in their communities and credibility with legislators by engaging and welcoming all dog lovers to participate in educational days, lobby days and community outreach events that range from microchip clinics to publicity for AKC Reunite Disaster Trailers. • “A Legislator’s Perspective: Why Legislators Need to Hear from You” by the Hon. Janice Gardner, AKC Delegate, Rockingham County Ken- nel Club. Former New Hampshire State representative, lobbyist and dog fancier Janice Gardner spoke candidly about the importance of educating and interacting with legis- lators on canine issues and the need for more dog owners and breeders to get actively involved in attending hearings and contacting legislators. She noted that dog owners must get

involved and communicate directly with their legislators if they want to preserve their rights to own and breed dogs. • “Regional Legislative Overview and Group Work Sessions” led by AKC staff. This program outlined legislation that had been recently introduced in New England and compared it with similar legislation from around the country. Legisla- tive language, trends, tactics and approaches were discussed. Phil Guidry, AKC Government Rela- tions Senior Policy Analyst commented, “We got down to the nitty-gritty on pol- icy issues that often divide fanciers and other groups. It was great to see advo- cates from diverse backgrounds pledge to work together to defend against radi- cal animal legislation that’s plaguing New England, and starting to afflict the whole country.” “Our dedicated attendees engaged in inspired discussion. We look forward to seeing all that these advocates will achieve legislatively in their communi- ties,” Goffe added. The Government Relations team will host additional regional legislative con- ferences throughout the country this year and in coming years. In a recent blog, Sheila Goffe com- mented, “The loss of the circus repre- sents the damage that hatred, extrem- ism and bullying can cause to science, the public good and the human-animal bond. The [extremist] groups that fraudulently attacked Ringling Broth- ers continue to attack dog breeders as ‘cruel puppy mills.’ For the sake of our animals and the future of the human- animal bond, let’s learn from this trag- edy, take time to ask tough questions about bullying attacks on animal enter- prises and ensure this situation never happens again.” To see Sheila Goffe’s full blog article, please visit http://www.akc.org/con- tent/news/articles/ringling-brothers- circus-call-dog-lovers/. Fair warning—it’s up to us! Befriend your local politicians and remind yourself over and over that they want your vote to represent you. Hold them accountable! The Greatest Shows on Earth are in our hands! Powerful, well-funded orga- nizations are working against us. Be informed. Success begins with you!

I have watched the live Westmin- ster coverage every year for as long as I can remember (except for the years I’ve been there in person!). It borders on religion: West- minster, the second-longest running sporting event in the United States, the one televised dog show that includes the entire Group and Best in Show judging live. The Garden. 2017 brought some new changes, plus some more multi-talented Best of Breed winners and Group placers (I do love those versatile dogs!). THE CHANGE This year change came to the West- minster Kennel Club dog show in the form of the start of the ten-year con- tract with FS1 for television coverage. I discovered this at 7:45 Monday night as I begged my internet connection to play nice with the streaming. Overall, I think FS1 got through their initiation fairly well. I know there were issues— streaming during the daytime judg- ing crashing, difficulties accessing the channel for viewers, inexperienced cameramen, inexperienced announc- ers. These things were not ideal, but I do not think we can really say they were unexpected. The reality is that

“THESE THINGS MAKE OUR DOGS REAL— THEY AREN’T JUST WELL-TRAINED ROBOTS, THEY PLAY WITH TOYS AND STEAL FOOD OFF THE COUNTERS JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DOG.”

dog shows are not something that the general public understands or knows much about and FS1 is included in that population. There were bound to be blips. We should be happy that they were willing to take on the challenge of learning a new sport, and try to nicely suggest ways they can improve. FS1 did show that they are willing to learn. There was a major outcry Mon- day night over the failure to put each dog’s registered name on the screen. This definitely falls under the category of “things that non-dog-show people don’t think about”. To the average per- son, registered names don’t really mean anything, whereas the call name of the dog is something they understand because every dog has one. But by Tues- day night, they had adjusted and added the registered names in. Personally, I think that including the call names and little fun facts on

the screen were good additions. Even for members of the dog fancy, the con- nection between a dog’s call and regis- tered names is not always apparent. For example, there was a Tervuren years back named Gourou du Crepuscule des Loups. His actual call name was “Ghor”, but many people just referred to him as “Gourou”. It was a long time before I realized that “Ghor” and “Gourou” were the same dog. If I had to choose one name to know, I would rather have the registered name because it allows you to track down the breeder and pedigree of a dog, but including the call name is a nice plus. Call names also add a layer of relatability for the average person watching the broadcast—these dogs may be show dogs, but they have regu- lar names just like their dogs at home. The same can be said for the fun facts, such as what a particular dog’s favorite treat or activity is. These things make our dogs real—they aren’t just well- trained robots, they play with toys and steal food off the counters just like any other dog. I know we all miss David Frei, but let’s give Gail Miller Bisher some credit. She’s no slouch—she has been involved with dogs her entire life in both confor- mation and performance, and is a judge. She is one of us. Were there bobbles? Yes. But I’ve also heard Mike LaFave make mistakes, and it is still one of my biggest wishes to hear his voice call out

my dog’s number at the Garden. David Frei’s departure was due to the new network contract (one announcer working for two net- works didn’t fly with the powers that be), and he will still be call- ing the National Dog Show aired by NBC. I don’t think many of us could have done a better debut performance than Gail Miller Bisher and by 2026 she could very well be a beloved household name for the fancy. Some other complaints that I have heard were about the cam- eras panning the crowd and miss- ing part of a dog’s judging and the interviews with the winners in the ring. Remember, everyone— FS1 is a sports channel. These are things that happen all the time during and after sports games. Should we request that the cam- eras remain focused on the dog being judged? Absolutely. Should we request interviews with the winners ask more dog-show rel- evant questions than the ques- tions athletes get? Absolutely. But we don’t need to panic. Yes, the channel should have been a little more prepared and had a bet- ter understanding of dog show proceedings, but studying only goes so far—in the heat of the moment, everyone, in every disci- pline, reverts to what they know. The FS1 team will improve. VERSATILITY REPORT On a lighter note, I went through the list of Breed win- ners again to look for perfor- mance titles. I did count CGC and CGCA this year, which yielded six Groups with at least one Best of Breed winner having an additional title. The Sporting Group topped the list with eight titled dogs. The Vizsla was one of the two dogs out of all Groups with the most titles: six agility titles and a Junior Hunter. Like last year, the Sporting dogs boasted the most purpose-relevant titles: three Junior Hunters, one Junior Hunter Retriever and two Senior Hunters (the American Water Spaniel and the Wirehaired

Pointing Griffon). The American Water Spaniel also boasted the most diverse spread of titles, hav- ing titles in obedience, rally, hunt- ing, retrieving, and a CGC, and the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was the most successful performance- titled dog at this year’s WKC by winning second in the Group. The Herding Group boasted four dogs with titles, including the other most titled dog, the Belgian Sheepdog. He has two obedience titles, four rally titles and his CGCA. The Pumi was the only Herding dog with a herding title—Pre-Trial. The Hound Group also had four titled dogs. The Saluki was the most titled Hound, with titles in lure coursing, rally, and obedi- ence. Two Hounds had purpose- relevant titles; the Saluki with a Junior Courser and the Pharaoh Hound with a Master Courser. Although not a performance title, the Plott is also a Coon- hound Grand Champion through AKC’s Coonhound bench shows. I hadn’t realized that the AKC offers these competitions! The Working Group is next with three titled dogs. The Boer- boel was once again the most ver- satile Working dog, with titles in obedience, rally and lure cours- ing plus a CGC. The Bernese Mountain Dog went back to his roots by earning his Novice Draft Dog title and also placed fourth in the Group. The Terrier Group had one titled dog: the American Staf- fordshire Terrier, who is titled in lure coursing and dock div- ing, plus has his CGCA. The Am Staff was the third and final dog with performance titles to place in a Group, and took third from the Terriers. And last but not least, the Non- Sporting Group had one titled dog: the Shar-Pei with a CGC. Congratulations to all of these dogs on their successes in many venues! And of course congratu- lations to all of the winners— most of these dogs are limited by their owners’ time and finances, not by talent!

THOUGHTS I HAD DRIVING HOME FROM THE DOG SHOW

by CAROLINE COILE

S ometimes we’re so busy wringing our hands about dog show entries going down and judging application processes changing and all the politics of dogs we forget to notice how much things are actually improving. Nowhere is it more evident than in the field of veterinary science and research. Many of these studies were funded by breed clubs, the AKC Canine Health Foundation or even individual dog lov- ers. So I thought I’d go back to my roots of canine science and medicine report- ing and give you an update. The follow- ing advances have been made in only the past few months: NEW FLU

of protection. The vaccines use geneti- cally engineered live flu virus that rep- licates in the dog’s nose but not lungs. Generating an immune response in the nose, where the virus first enters the body, stops the invader in its tracks. The researchers found the live vaccine was safe and able to induce better immune protection against H3N8 canine influ- enza than a commercially available inactivated vaccine. A second live vaccine was created by removing a protein called NS1 from H3N8 canine influenza virus. Remov- ing this protein significantly weakens flu viruses so they elicit an immune response, but don’t cause illness.

more effective than the only currently available inactivated vaccine.

In about half the cases it starts in the spleen, but it also occurs in the heart and liver, and less commonly in the lungs, kidneys, mouth, muscle, bone, brain and bladder. It can also occur in the skin, but is less aggressive in that case. With direct contact to the blood supply, it metastasizes quickly VETERINARY RESEARCH and Dentistry have developed two new vaccines for canine influenza. Current flu vaccines use inactivated or killed flu virus, but provide only short-term, limited protection. The new vaccines are “live-attenuated” vaccines against H3N8 canine influenza virus, which is currently circulating in dogs in the US. These vaccines provide better immune responses and longer periods The group has also created a live- attenuated vaccine for the H3N2 canine influenza virus, which was introduced in the United States in 2015. Early results show the H3N2 live-attenuated vaccine is able to protect against the H3N2 canine influenza virus and is
