GREYHOUND

A M E S S A G E F R OM T H E P U B L I S H E R HAPPY NEW YEAR!

T his year, New Year’s was extra special as I got to spend it with those closest to me and with family members whom I haven’t seen for well over two years. We made appetizers and cocktails, and compiled a list of goals for the coming year. We also created a New Year’s Eve song playlist… curated to perfection. What else is there to do on New Year’s Eve—besides, you know, classic New Year’s Eve traditions like watching the ball drop and celebrating with an international fireworks marathon? Why all the fuss? Well, to get inspired for what’s to come, of course! And there’s no better way to get inspired than via a few of the best New Year’s quotes, like the ones I’ve compiled here. Let these words of wisdom, grace, positivity, and motivation inspire you to have your best year yet. I’ve got the classics: “Last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice,” from famed writer T.S. Eliot; and a few words you may have never heard before from Helen Keller: “Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” I’ve even got a funny New Year’s quote thrown in for good measure from the likes of Bill Vaughan: “Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.” Technically, I can’t claim to be middle-aged as I have only just turned 34 years old on December 30th, but let me tell you that every day spent with a 5-month-old son and 5- and 8-year-old daughters, plus a Hound and two Sporting dogs, I am lucky to stay up past 9:30PM ! Dear Friends, Everything that’s good in life starts with having a belief that the best is yet to come. If there is anything that I and/or my SHOWSIGHT Family can assist you with—today and throughout the year—please do not hesitate to personally call me at (512) 541-8128 or email aj@aramediagroup.com. I can’t promise that I will pick up your call if you call after 9:30PM… but you never know . Let’s Make 2022 a Great Year!

Yours Faithfully,

AJ ARAPOVIC, OWNER & PUBLISHER

AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB EXPANDS ITS PACK IN 2022 - MUDI AND RUSSIAN TOY BRING RECOGNIZED BREEDS TO 199 –

Mudi Photo by ©Amanda Haldeman Russian Toy Photo by ©American Kennel Club

New York, NY - The American Kennel Club (AKC®), the world’s largest purebred dog registry and leading advocate for dogs, announced today that the Mudi and Russian Toy have received full recognition, and are eligible to compete in the Herding Group and Toy Group, respectively. These additions bring the number of AKC-recognized breeds to 199. “We’re thrilled to have two unique breeds join the registry,” said Gina DiNardo, AKC Executive Secretary. “The Mudi, a medium-sized herding dog, makes a great pet for an active family committed to keeping this worker busy, and the small, loving Rus- sian Toy thrives on being close to its humans, making a wonderful companion for an owner who can be with the dog a great deal. As always, we encourage people to do their research to find the right breed for their lifestyle.” The Mudi joins the Herding Group, and is a medium-sized, ver- satile, all-purpose farm dog from Hungary. The breed is courageous and useful for working the most stubborn livestock. It’s loyal, and protective of property and family members. Mudi are very energetic, enjoying a good run. They are playful, affectionate, and can be calm and relaxed at home. They don’t have many grooming requirements. Occasional baths and a combing or brushing will do.

Joining the Toy Group, the Russian Toy dates back to the Rus- sian aristocracy. These dogs may be little, but they pack a ton of per- sonality. They are elegant, lively, active, and cheerful. They are intel- ligent, with a strong desire to please. Russian Toys thrive on human companionship, loving to snuggle and be close to their family. They can, however, be slightly aloof with strangers. The breed has two coat types—longhaired and smooth. The longhaired coat should be brushed two to three times per week and given baths monthly. The smooth coat needs weekly brushing and occasional baths. AKC recognition offers a breed the opportunity to compete at all levels of AKC-sanctioned events. Recognition does not neces- sarily mean that the breed is a newly created breed. Many of the breeds that gain full AKC-recognition have existed for decades, and some are ancient. To become an AKC-recognized breed there must be an active following and interest in the breed by owners in the US as well as an established breed club of responsible owners and breeders. There also must be a sufficient population of dogs in the United States, geographically distributed throughout the county. Breeds working towards full recognition are recorded in AKC’s Foundation Stock Service® (FSS®). Additional informa- tion on the process can be found at akc.org.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB Founded in 1884, the American Kennel Club is a not-for-profit organization, which maintains the largest registry of purebred dogs in the world and oversees the sport of purebred dogs in the United States. The AKC is dedicated to upholding the integrity of its registry, promoting the sport of purebred dogs, and breeding for type and function. Along with its more than 5,000 licensed and member clubs and its affiliated organi- zations, the AKC advocates for the purebred dog as a family companion, advances canine health and well-being, works to protect the rights of all dog owners, and promotes responsible dog ownership. More than 22,000 competitions for AKC-registered purebred and mixed breed dogs are held under AKC rules and regulations each year, including conformation, agility, obedience, rally, tracking, herding, lure coursing, coonhound events, hunt tests, and field and earthdog tests. Affiliate AKC organizations include the AKC Humane Fund, AKC Canine Health Foundation, AKC Reunite, and the AKC Museum of the Dog. For more information, visit www.akc.org.

“WHETHER OWNER HANDLER OR PROFESSIONAL HANDLER, A SMASHING GOOD PUPPY CAN TAKE YOU THROUGH YEARS OF DOG SHOW SUCCESS.”

BY BARBARA (BJ) ANDREWS

NEW YEAR, NEW PUPPY, NEW GOALS LET’S TAKE A PROVERBIAL WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH A LEASH IN YOUR HAND.

R emembrances of your first dog come easily to mind. For me, it was the Christmas my Daddy gave me a new mattress for my bed. I tried to hold back the tears; daddy didn’t tolerate a cry baby. My mother softly chided him, so he said, “Okay kid, go look on the back porch.” Fearing it was another trick, I remember dragging my feet, then opening the door to the sun porch, and there was a dog!!! Sitting right in front of me, wriggling her butt, tongue lolling, those big, soft Spaniel eyes looking up at me expectantly. I can still feel her licking my face… tears I guess. My hands remember her long, silky ears. As she slobbered all over my cheek, Daddy said her name was “Babe.” He could have said “Santa Clause” and that would have been more fitting! My mother said she was a “registered” English Springer Spaniel and that she retrieved on land or water. The fact that Daddy got her more as a hunting partner for him- self than as a pet for me didn’t matter. That was my best Christmas ever and the year that followed is one I treasure. How incredibly fortunate that I was to grow up in a world where Santa Claus was real and dreams come true. My job here is done because by now your mind is wander- ing. You are thinking of your first dog. Then your first dog show and how nervous you were, but also how thrilling that first blue ribbon was.

I’ll bet you remember the year you packed away Christmas and headed for the January circuit in Florida. What a great way to start a New Year! New friends, and a “world-beater” new dog to start. Back then we measured dates by which circuit we could make or whether we’d skip shows for a while and have a litter instead. See me smile now… Then we got motorized homes and could take all the dogs with us! And shucks, all our friends were at dog shows so that was our biggest social outlet. February meant Westminster, and for us southerners, getting there and back on icy roads was a big deal. Sometimes we came back from “up north” with a purple ribbon or even a Group rosette, though we always came back with memories to last a lifetime. Whether owner handler or professional handler, a smashing good puppy can take you through years of dog show success. But whether you win or not, there are dogs that will always live in your heart, and another COVID-year will be bearable and better because of a dog. So have a Happy New Year every day in 2022. Have fun at the shows with that new puppy. Be appreciative of family and friends, and reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in ages. But don’t forget your first dog and, most of all, hug your old dog!

B Y DA RY L MA RT I N

Jo-Ann I N M E MO RY O F

Kusumoto we kept talking for several hours. Well, that was the day in 1991 when there was a big earthquake, and if she had not been talking to me she would have likely been on the bridge that went down! Back to Jo-Ann: She started showing Chinese Cresteds and had a great run in those too. I showed the Multiple Best in Show dog, “Toby,” bred by Karla Matlock, to many victories and a Top Toy Dog too. We continued with Cresteds, but Jo-Ann also fell in love with Maltese—and the rest is history. Jo-Ann owned several Best in Show Maltese and several #1 Maltese, includ- ing BIS “Citrus” and BIS “Timebomb.” She supported her people not just by financing campaigns, but also through her friendships and by always staying positive, even when the chips were down. (She would laugh at the school- like behavior of many of our current competitors/breeders.) A true lady, few people like her are left in this game. Jo-Ann was on the Board of AKC Canine Health Foundation for many years. Besides being a big financial supporter, she also had the skills of leader- ship. Take the Lead touched her heart for the work they have done for so many in need within our community. She participated behind the scenes, support- ing many dog charities, dog clubs, Davis University Vet School, and others too numerousy to name. Jo-Ann was a beautiful person and, with the exception of a few people left in our dog show community, her passing likely signals the end of an era. She may be gone, but Jo-Ann will never be forgotten. My heart goes out to her devoted husband who cared for her 24/7 these last few years. Roy, you are an angel too.

S adly, and too soon in life, we lost one of the greatest remaining dog ladies in the dog world. Jo-Ann Kusumoto was a very private person, but one of the kindest, most sincere, and loyal of human beings. She had a full life of trav- eling, owning businesses, playing with her personal house dogs, staying in touch with people she knew throughout the years, and caring for those in need. If Jo-Ann felt that you were a good person, she would stand behind you until the end. However, she also had “the devil” in her. Besides doing things her way, she would fight to the finish. In dogs, she started years and years ago with her Dobes, and a little-known fact for today’s Shar-Pei people is that Jo-Ann was involved with the breed before they were even in AKC; not just breed, even before Miscellaneous! The late Peter Belmont, Jim Deppen, and Darlene Wright were involved with her in those days. Jo-Ann owned many different breeds, but was devoted for most of her life to the Dober- man Pinscher, owning many top exhibits, including the #1 Working Dog, Ch. Marienburg’s Repo Man, shown by Moe Miyagawa. Jo-Ann was a staunch sup- porter of Mary Rogers’ dogs, and helped her until she passed away. As the years progressed, Jo-Ann and I became friends—many years before she was a client. I showed a Shar-Pei that she bred, “Rambo,” owned by Ann Coleman, TailsEnd. This was, again, before the breed received total recognition. Ann had a Tibetan Terrier of mine that I was campaigning, and Jo-Ann thought that the TT would be a great breed for her mother. (Of course, Jo-Ann took total care of her mom until her passing too.) So, she flew out and took home a charm- ing puppy named “Stuffy.” Jo-Ann and I became fast friends, and the story that comes to mind immediately is one that saved her life! Anyone who knew Jo-Ann knew that she could talk… and talk she did. One day we were on the phone, and she kept saying, “I have to get home,” but

Form Follows FUNCTION BY STEPHANIE SEABROOK HEDGEPATH MEASURING PROPORTIONS AND FINDING LANDMARKS PART ONE W hat is the first thing a judge does once a class is in the ring and checked in? He or she “walks the line” to get a first impression of the dog’s profile. If you are not sure of the essential physical As our first example, this is from the Standard for the Shetland Sheepdog: SIZE, PROPORTION, SUBSTANCE

“Size, Proportion, Substance: The Shetland Sheepdog should stand between 13 and 16 inches at the shoulder. Note: Height is determined by a line perpendicular to the ground from the top of the shoulder blades, the dog standing naturally, with forelegs parallel to line of measurement. Disqualifications - Heights below or above the desired size range are to be disqualified from the show ring. In over- all appearance, the body should appear moderately long as measured from shoulder joint to ischium (rearmost extremity of the pelvic bone), but much of this length is actually due to the proper angulation and breadth of the shoulder and hindquarter, as the back itself should be comparatively short.”

characteristics that make up your breed, you may find some hints in the first paragraphs of your breed’s AKC Standard under the heading of General Description. The next paragraph that I turn to in my studies of a new breed is usually the section on Size, Propor- tion and Substance. Please note that not all standards have this sec- tion separated from the whole of the standard, so you may have to hunt for the information. In the late 1980s, AKC decreed that all Breed Standards be formatted in a particular order from that point forward. Only breeds recognized prior to 1989 could have revisions made to their Standards without reformatting, and any newcom- ers must use the format now in use. The majority of parent clubs went along with the new format and were allowed to reformat their Standards without making any actual changes to the wording, but a few declined and remain as they were. The proportions of a dog are vital to their breed character. Their profile gives you the shape of the dog—so that most breeds can be identified by their silhouette alone. Proportions can vary widely from breed to breed, as do size and substance. But when describing the silhouette of the dog, the Standard usually (but not always!) explains height, weight, and proportion. When studying propor- tions in different breeds, there is usually a reference to particular points in the dog that are used as the basis for measurements. I call these particular points “landmarks.” These landmarks vary from breed to breed and it is up to the breeder to learn how to find these landmarks so that they can determine the proportions in their own animals. Let us first discuss some of these landmarks and, more specifically, where they are located on the dog.

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION

The ideal length/height ratio is 1.8:1 when measuring from the point of the breast bone (prosternum) to the rear of the hip (ischial tuberosity) and measuring from the ground to the point of the withers. Ideally, dogs should be from 30 to 38 pounds; bitches from 25 to 34 pounds. Lack of overall balance, oversized or undersized are serious faults.” As a dwarf breed, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a normal-sized head and body, but shortened limbs. The breed is decid- edly rectangular in profile. Length is mea- sured from the breastbone (prosternum) (“A” on Figure 4) to the rear of the hip/ ischial tuberosity or pin bone (“B” on Figure 4). The height is from the highest point of the withers (“C” on Figure 4) to the ground (“D” on Figure 4). Using these landmarks to measure, the Cardigan is nearly twice as long as it is tall. Therefore, the measurement landmarks for the Cardi- gan Welsh Corgi are the breastbone (pro- sternum), the ischial tuberosity (pin bone), and the withers. What I am trying to point out with these illustrations is that the landmarks used to measure the height and length of a dog can vary from breed to breed. The height is measured in the same way, no matter the breed, by using a wicket. The point (landmark) at which the measure- ment is determined can vary somewhat, as we have seen in the examples given, depending upon the point at which the height is to be determined. A fixed point gives a far more accurate measurement. The fixed point in this case, the wither, is composed of the first three to four tho- racic vertebrae along with muscle and coat. To be even more specific, it is the spine of the vertebrae that serves as this particu- lar landmark. A correctly placed shoul- der blade results in a wither that blends smoothly into the back. The (highest) point of the shoulder blade (scapula) is also used in a few of the Herding breeds as the uppermost measurement for height in the Collie, German Shepherd Dog, Nor- wegian Buhund, and Shetland Sheepdog. Unfortunately, the shoulder blade can be attached to the thorax in differing posi- tions, from well-laid-back (approximately a 45-degree angle to the ground) to more upright positions, which may also be moved forward on the thorax; therefore, not a fixed point. All other Herding breeds use the fixed point of the highest part of the withers for the measurement of height. In Part Two, I will discuss how to find and palpate the landmarks used when going over a dog.

Please note that the landmarks to determine the length of the Sheltie are the shoulder joint, also called the point of shoulder (“A” on Figure 1) to the ischium, also called the pin bone (“B” on Figure 1) and from the top of the shoulder blades (“C” on Figure 1) to the ground (“D” on Figure 1). The shoulder joint is the joint formed where the shoulder blade (scapula) meets the upper arm (humerus). It is con- sidered to be a fixed point on the dog’s body. Unfortunately, the shoulder blade is not a fixed point—if the dog is more upright in shoulder, the topmost part of the shoulder blade is moved forward, mak- ing the dog measure longer. When mea- suring a dog, one usually uses the highest point of the withers, which is composed of the first nine thoracic vertebrae and is a fixed point. The highest point of the with- ers is usually one of the first four thoracic vertebrae. Therefore, the measurement landmarks for the Shetland Sheepdog are the shoulder joint, the pin bone, and the top of the shoulder blade. Here is another of the Herding breeds: “Size, Proportion, Substance: Size - The preferred height for males is 20 to 23 inches, females 18 to 21 inches. Quality is not to be sacrificed in favor of size. Proportion - Mea- suring from the breastbone to rear of thigh and from top of the withers to the ground the Aus- tralian Shepherd is slightly longer than tall.” On the Australian Shepherd, the mea- surement is from the breastbone (proster- num) (“A” on Figure 2) to the rear of the thigh (“B” on Figure 2), which is com- monly referred to as the pin bone or sci- entifically as the ischiatic tuberosity. The breastbone (prosternum) projects forward of the shoulder joint or point of shoulder and is a fixed point, as is the pin bone in the rear. The height of the dog is measured from the top of the withers (“C” on Figure 2) to the ground (“D” on Figure 2). There- fore, the measurement landmarks for the Australian Shepherd are the breastbone, the pin bone, and the withers. What we can see in comparing these two breeds is that even though they use different points of reference, they basically have the same proportions in both: slightly longer than tall. A Herding breed with a different shape is the Old English Sheepdog: “Size, Proportion, Substance: Type, character and balance are of greater impor- tance and are on no account to be sacrificed to size alone. Size - Height (measured from top of withers to the ground), Dogs: 22 inch- es (55.8 centimeters) and upward. Bitches: 21 inches (53.3 centimeters) and upward.

Figure 2. Australian Shepherd Proportion Measurements

Figure 3. Old English Sheepdog Proportion Measurements

Figure 4. Cardigan Welsh Corgi Proportion Measurements

Proportion - Length (measured from point of shoulder to point of ischium (tuberosity) practically the same as the height. Absolutely free from legginess or weaselness. Substance - Well muscled with plenty of bone.” The Old English Sheepdog is a square dog. The measurement landmarks are the wither (“C” on Figure 3), the point of the shoulder, at the shoulder joint, (“A” on Fig- ure 3), and the ischium tuberosity or pin bone (“B” on Figure 3). The measurement is “practically the same,” and therefore, square. So, the measurement landmarks for the Old English Sheepdog are the point of shoulder to the end of the ischium (pin bone), and the withers. Let us now look at another breed with a totally different outline, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi: “Size, Proportion, Substance: Overall balance is more important than absolute size. Dogs and bitches should be from 10.5 to 12.5 inches at the withers when standing naturally.

LINES FROM LINDA

BETTY WHITE LUDDEN JANUARY 17, 1922 - DECEMBER 31, 2021

AN AMAZING LADY — A TRUE CHAMPION FOR ALL DOGS AND ANIMALS

BY LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR

M y Mother, Hazel (Mrs. Roy Ayers), introduced me to Betty White many years ago. Already being a fan of the Emmy award-winning film and television actress, I learned from visiting with the two of them what a champion of animal causes Betty was. When talking about dogs, Betty lit up the room with her contagious and very genuine smile. One of my treasures is this wonderful photograph with Wayne Ferguson, Betty White, and me, captured one year during Westminster week. Wayne and I shared the memory with each other recently, and I think he speaks for all of us who knew her when he said: “Betty was an amazing lady in so many ways. Her love for animals was a major part of her life, since she was a toddler. The many dogs in her lifetime gave her true happi- ness, and her devotion to their health was everlasting. May our memories of her make us smile, give us strength, and always be with us”.

SHOW CHAIRS NEVER SIT

MARILYN PIPES CHAIRPERSON CHISOLM TRAIL CLASSIC CLUSTER CLUBS, BELL COUNTY KC AND STEPHENVILLE TEXAS KC 1. What is the name of your show/cluster? Our cluster is the Chisolm Trail Classic of the Bell County and Stephenville Texas Kennel Clubs. 2. Where are your shows held? When? Our shows are held at the Bell County Expo Center, Belton, Texas, over the third week of October (Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday). 3. Can you please provide a brief history of your club? The cluster began in 2010 due to the Stephenville KC losing their venue. Bell County KC graciously invited us to partner with them to have our shows. It has been a great working relation- ship and has allowed Stephenville to continue in viability as a show-giving club. The Expo Center has made improvements to accommodate the dog shows and is very responsive to our needs. It is busy with many other activities (craft shows, live- stock fair, horse competitions, concerts, etc.) but has not taken advantage of dog clubs that have a limited ability to contend with expensive venues. Stephenville KC has been in existence as a conformation show and obedience trial club since about 1980. Due to lower entries in recent years and the additional workers needed to hold obedience trials, we let our obedience approval lapse a few years ago. Marilyn Pipes has served as Show Chair for the past six years. Stephenville KC Show com- mittee consists of Marilyn and Willie Pipes, Lynda and Mel- vin Misegadis, and Donna Svien. Bell County KC began in the early 1980s under the name Funtier KC of Greater Killeen, as an obedience trial club. In 1996, conformation shows were approved, and in 2008 the name was changed to Bell County KC, with Belton, Texas, as home. In addition to conformation shows, Bell County offers both AKC obedience and agility tri- als on different dates than the cluster show. George Armstrong has functioned as Bell County KC Show Chair for the past two years, having assumed the role from Sandra Schmidt who had stepped down due to health reasons. George is assisted by Danelle Brown and club officers Ed Eldridge, Terri Boedeker, Linda Stanley, and Darryl Schuller. 4. How are the following accommodated at your show/clus- ter: Parking; Grooming; Bathing; Hospitality; Vendors; Public Education? The Expo Center has ample parking and is located just off Interstate Highway 35 between Austin and Dal- las. Parking is free and the Expo Center also has RV spots for rent on the grounds. They also help with grooming needs such as electricity, and provide a number of electric outlet banks for dryers and clippers, etc.There are two wash bays available in the portion used by the shows, and places to set up public ex-pens. The clubs provide clean-up bags for exhibitors outside the main building and at the hotels next door to the Expo Center. The Expo Center provides waste barrels inside and outside for use by exhibitors. Bell County KC handles vendor management.

For the past three years, the cluster has utilized the volunteer services of the Southern Handlers Charity group to set up and “police” the reserved and free grooming spaces at the show. This group marks off the spaces using a map provided by the Stephenville KC, which is responsible for collecting the fees for reserved grooming spaces. Both clubs make a donation to the SHC Foundation for this help. The clubs pool receipts for vendors, grooming, and entry fees and reconcile with shared facility costs, etc., and split the net results equally. The cluster takes advantage of public education provided by the AKC Rep. This past year, we had New Exhibitor Orientation and a dem- onstration of the use of the wicket and scale. 5. Does your show/cluster offer the National Owner-Handled Series? Junior Showmanship? 4-6 Month Beginner Pup- py? Best Bred-By? Specialties? Supported Entries? Yes, we always offer the NOHS! We offer Junior Showmanship and 4-6 Month Beginner Puppy, although we usually don’t offer this on all four days since it is so tiring for the puppies. We have, in the past, offered Best Bred-By, though not recently. This is due to the difficulty of finding additional people to judge these special Groups (Best Puppy, Best Bred-By, etc.) and having so many activities going on at the end of each judging day. Owner-Handled Groups are well received and have con- tinued to draw more participants. We continue to have several “Bell County KC graciously invited us to partner with them to have our shows.
