HEAT STROKE WARNING SHOW DOGS OR PETS AT GROCERY STORES, DOG SHOWS OR MALLS Once again there have been dogs left in vans and motor homes at shows— some with alarms that failed. But this is a people thing! Leave a person in charge or have a dual alarm system to protect those whose lives you are responsible to protect while they are in your care. With the outside temperature at 80 degrees, the inside of a car or van will reach 99 degrees in ten minutes or less. A killing temperature! None of this is new, but it continues to happen every year and this is the third year it has been discussed in “Toy Talk”. Why ?

just running in the store for five min- utes because you could come back to a dead pet and heat death is a horrible way to die. If you see animals in dis- tress, call the police, notify the store manager or do whatever is necessary to save that dog.

a forum on TOY BREEDS with Carmen Blankenship, Dorothy eDge & Betty peplin CARMEN BLANKENSHIP

4. Is it your preference to have the handler show you the bite? I don’t have a strong preference. 5. What is your pet peeve when judging? Baiting your exhibit is fine while I am viewing it from the side; I wish handlers would stop baiting their exhibit when I walk to the front of the dog. I cannot assess your exhibit’s headpiece, natural expression or front when your hand or entire body is in front of your exhibit. DOROTHY EDGE

I acquired my first Chow in the late 60s and started my show career in obedience, but quickly moved to conformation. I finished more than 30 Chow champions. That does not sound like many in today’s show climate, but at the time Chow were at the height of their popularity and it took far more exhibits to get a major than today, so finishing a dog was not easy. I produced several BIS Chows and many regional and

As a child, my love of dogs and horses led me to the dog show world in 1969 in Great Britain. I have many fond memories while there. Once in the US show world, I got the great opportunity to pur- chase S & S Pet Supplies. This gave me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful friends and dogs. After selling the business, I applied to AKC to begin my slow process of obtaining the Toy group with, of course, my breed the Shih Tzu—

national specialty winners. When I started judging in about 1995, I ceased showing the Chows. I now have Pekingese and English Toy Spaniels. I have also owned and finished a few Pomeranians and an English Pointer. I presently am approved to judge the Non-Sporting Group and about two-thirds of the Toy Group.

1. What is your original breed? Chow Chow.

and over twenty-five years of experience. Since then I have added several more Toy breeds and hope to gain group status sometime in the future. I currently have my last breeding, Ch. Live Oaks YakityYak I Talk Back, who is twelve and Ch Alvin Farms Rivergate Red Rover, who is semi-retired at age six.

2. What three conformation characteristic do you consider critical in judging decisions? I cannot limit my response to three characteristics. I try to apply the entire standard and judge each exhibit as a com- plete package. In the Toys, different breeds put more empha- sis on some characteristics over others, so I don’t feel that each breed can be judged generically. Having said this, I make my final decisions when the exhibits are on the move as this reveals so much more about the exhibit than the static stack in place. When the dog is moving, I can see how its parts work together to form a harmonious whole; its true topline, body length and tail set; its neck length and how it carries it head; a bit about its personality and temperament and in some cases how the coat moves with the dog. 3. What ring pattern do you prefer for toy dogs? Table first or ground first? I send them around first, whether in a class of one or more, so that I can get an overall impression of the dog as a whole.

1. What is your original breed? My first show dog was an Afghan Hound in 1969.

2. What three conformation characteristics do you consider critical in judging decisions? The three confirmation I consider critical: 1) Overall bal- ance for the breed. 2) Correct movement for the breed. 3) Correct temperament. 3. What ring pattern do you prefer for Toy dogs? Table first or go around first? For Toy breeds I prefer the go around first, table exam and down and back.

4. Is it your preference to have the handler show you the bite? I prefer the handler to show the bite. This gives me no chance in exposing illness to the other dogs. 5. Can you name a dog from the past that is your ideal Toy dog? Naming a dog from the past that is my ideal Toy dog is a tough question as there has been so many that I thought were outstanding. 6. What is your pet peeve when judging? My pet peeve when judging is not ready to go in the ring when called or being late. With Toy breeds, I feel bait isn’t necessary but have no objection as long it’s not given during my exam. BETTY PEPLIN

like that. The down and back pattern lets you see them com- ing and going, stop in front of you to see outline if you want step aside or just expression. Then sending the dog around to the end lets me concentrate on the holding of the topline and side movement. 4. Is it your preference to have the handler show you the bite? The bite should be left up to the exhibitor. Not all dogs, especially puppies, are more comfortable with the one they know do it. If you didn’t see what you want tell them to show it again. This also helps not to pass on anything from dog to dog. 5. Can you name a dog from the past that is your ideal Havanese? This brings to mind a beautiful boy named “Breezy”, CH Kolmar’s Caribbean Breeze, owned by Lisa Soars. I watched him strut his stuff in Veterans class at 15 years old at the HCA National. He moved out in front of many younger ones; it brought tears to many eyes. I was told that a very lovely bitch “Cookie”, Starkette Cookies ‘N Cream, had the same sire as Breezy who was CH Voila Prime Time, ROM. I’m sure some of you longtime breeders remember them. All in all, quality gets quality. 6. What is your pet peeve when judging? Exhibitors that don’t take their dogs off the mat or run way when the dog has to relieve itself. It is okay to let them go so they are more comfortable, but please not where it will distract other exhibitors dogs on the pattern. A couple steps aside to the middle would help. Also when an exhibitor does not pay attention to their dog when they are moving to know if they are moving right. I have seen people that just look straight ahead and have no idea that their dog is caught up in the lead, pooping or moving correctly. Yes, you have to look where you are going, but a quick glance at the dog would help. Pay attention to the judge when he or she is picking the first, winners or whatever. I have seen exhibitors so attentive to their dogs and the judge points to them and they never see it. Unfortunately for them, they just lost points. There is a happy medium in showing your best friend. “the Bite shoulD Be left up to the exhiBitor. not all Dogs, espeCially puppies, are more ComfortaBle with the one they know Do it.”

1. What is your original breed?

Collies were my first breed. I so love the Collies. My first one was a Christmas present when in 4th grade—not a show dog. When we went on our honeymoon we picked up a Collie puppy in Scran- ton, Pennsylvania. The breeder said it was a show prospect, so that was the beginning of my show career. As I got older my body was telling me these guys are getting too heavy for this little body. So thank goodness my dear friend Pat Kratochvil, who also had Collies,

had a five-week-old litter of Havanese. She told me to come see them—it was love at first site. This is where my first Havanese came from, CH Glen Iris Hide N Seek, “Fidget”. I still miss the Collies, but I do get hands on them when I judge. 2. What three conformation characteristics do you consider critical in judging decisions? Actually there are six characteristics that the Havanese breed standard calls for: topline, outline, gait, coat, expres- sion and ears and temperament. If you get out your the July 2016 edition of TNT , Terry Farley has a very good article that explains them in detail, no need to repeat. But, I do like to see that topline stay on the go around, a pretty outline and expression. 3. What ring pattern do you prefer for toy dogs? Table first or go around? I prefer to let the dogs go round first because it relaxes the dog and often the exhibitor. If there is just one dog and time is short I will have them on the table first, but I don’t

(TournamenT of Champion of Champions of The ameriCas & The Caribbean) FCI TORNEO CAMPEONE DE CAMPEONES DE LA AMERICAS Y EL CARIBES

W hen I first got the invitation to attend the competition in July in Mexico, I was hon- ored, but not familiar with the event. I had read about it in the past, but this was going to be a new adventure— like attending the FCI World Show in Russia or Crufts. After researching the event, I found out that it is considered by many to be the most prestigious event that the FCI sponsors in the Americas. We also learned that the Torneo can only be held in a country once every six years and it will be in another country next year. So when the time came, off we went to Mexico City on a direct flight from Salt Lake City, Utah. When we arrived, our host (and co-owner of our boy) Juan Carlos DeLuna and his personal driver met Randy and me at Mexico City’s huge airport. After a pleasant drive through the city, we end- ed up in a lovely community, Lerma, which is about an hour north of the city through the rain forests in the moun- tain. Mexico City sits at an elevation of over 7,300 feet above sea level. Lerma, which would be our home base for the next week is over 8,400 feet. But com- ing from a fairly high elevation in Idaho, we didn’t notice much difference. Arriving at the Casa de Luna was a treat. In a lovely gated guarded com- munity, the home is beautiful and the accommodations were outstanding. JC and his lovely wife, Maria (and their adorable daughter, Renata) were the most gracious of hosts. We were pam- pered beyond belief. The wonderful international restaurants at which we dined were world class. One of my favorites was the San Martin Hacienda, established in 1566, which is renowned for its authentic Mexican offerings. The day prior to the tournament we got to visit JC’s huge business operations in downtown Mexico City with over one thousand employees. Then we set out on a six-hour tour of by TimoThy reese

aztec statues.

the city, including the famous Templo Mayor , the fabulous Aztec ruins (which were only discovered in downtown Mexico City in 1978, just a block from the Presidential Palace). Then Saturday came and it was all about the tournament. Saturday eve- ning, those finalists for the Toreno , gathered at the amazing Royal Hotel and Resort in south Mexico City, not far from the beautiful offices of the Kennel Club of Mexico City. The ball- room where the finals would be held was beautiful with the ring in the middle the center of attention. Flags from every country in the Americas and the Caribbean lined the outside of the ring and the stage was beauti- fully adorned with the unbelievable trophies and ribbons which would be awarded to the four eventual winners. Around the ring were the tables where a five course dinner would be served. All decked out in black, white and silver; it was stunning. Then the tournament finale began. One hundred twenty-six finalists were called in for judging in groups of three. There were three international judges in the first round. Each judge examined the dogs and moved them, scored each dog on a point scale of up to 100 total possible points and then we left the ring to wait. I was in the fifth group to enter and be judged. When that round was completed, all the scores were then posted on a giant screen in the waiting area so we could see where

we stood. I was amazed. We scored the second highest score—a single point behind the top-winning Mexican Xoloitzcuintli, a crowd favorite. At the end of the first round, 50% of the competitors were elimi- nated and the remaining dogs enter into round two—with three different International Judges. Again we entered the ring in groups of three and the same procedures were followed, with each judge scoring each dog on a scale of 100 points. At the end of round two all the scores were again shown on the giant screen in the wait- ing room. No one in the ballroom could see the scores, but all the handlers were crowded five to six deep around the screen to see their scores after that round—because 50% of those in the second round would be eliminated there as well. At the end of the second round, we were so honored to be the

#1 scoring dog, receiving two perfect scores of 100 points thus far. The Xolo had dropped to third and a very famous Chihuahua had moved up to second. As the night wore on, the third round began—with only those that survived the second round enter- ing the ring, again in groups of three to be examined by three different International Judges. Needless to say this can take a toll on any dog—let alone a Toy dog. But Parry went in and showed his heart out. By this time, he was a crowd favorite and their cheers and applause energized him—and me, too—and were almost overwhelm- ing. At the end of the third round, five hours after the tournament began, only the top 15 dogs were invited to the fourth and final round. Because there was tie for 15th place, 16 dogs went into the ring for the finale. This time we all entered in the ring at the same time to wonderful music, spotlights and a single judge—Mr. Rafael De San- tiago, the President of the FCI. He had the group move around the ring and then he examined and moved each dog individually. He also scored each finalist on a score of 100 total possible points and then his score was added to each dog’s total score. Then we waited in the ring as the scores were tallied. After a short while, the mood changed as the music reached a new level. The judges came into the ring and the announcer started by opening a sealed envelope to announce the fourth place win- ner—the Xolo. Then the third place— the top-winning Afghan. The second place envelope was opened and the announcer called out the Chihuahua. FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE FCI...” “we learned ThaT he had reCeived A PERFECT SCORE

The crowd starting cheering and the presenter made a lot of announce- ments (in Spanish, of which I don’t understand a lot) and then opened the envelope and announced the winner—The Champion of Champi- ons of the Americas and the Carib- bean for 2016—and they called out... the Pekingese! The song “We Are the Champi- ons” by Queen started playing and the crowd gave a standing ovation, cameras were flashing and I was overwhelmed. What an honor, our American GCH. Dunkirk Imperial Palace Paramount became American GCH. Mexican Champion and Grand Champion and International Champion and Cham- pion of Champion of the Americas Dunkirk Imperial Palace Paramount.

Wow, what a mouthful—and I don’t think it mattered to him (Parry) as all he wanted to do is go into that ring and show his heart out. He loved it so much. When all was said and done, we learned that he had received a perfect score from the President of the FCI, the only time he had ever awarded a score of 100 to any dog and he received a total of 4 perfect 100 scores from the judges. His final score was the high- est ever awarded during the history of this tournament, which began in 1947. What an honor—and I am hum- bled that we bred and co-own such a wonderful little boy with a heart as big as the world. And I’m thrilled to have Juan Carlos ( JC) and Maria de Luna as his wonderful owners and friends for life.

To orlando WITH LOVE by caroline coile, Photo courtesy of lcc

E very December, thousands of dogs descend upon Orlando, dazzling specta- tors with their beauty, ath- leticism and intelligence, striving to bring home ribbons attesting to their conformation and abilities. This June, a handful of dogs came to Orlando with a far loftier—though qui- eter—goal. They came as therapists in fur coats, playing to a smaller but more grateful audience: the victims, the first responders and the traumatized of the Orlando nightclub shooting. This, the deadliest mass shooting in US history, included as one of its vic- tims one of our own, Gilberto Ramon Silva Mendez. Gilberto was a Saint Ber- nard fancier from Puerto Rico, who had moved to Orlando several years ago. On the Monday following the shoot- ing, twelve Golden Retrievers arrived to offer comfort to survivors, families who lost loved ones, emergency medi- cal workers and anyone else in need of a soft, warm presence. These Goldens are part of the K-9 Comfort Dogs team, a program run by the Lutheran Church Charities based in Northbrook, Illinois. They weren’t the only comfort dogs in Orlando, but the LCC group is probably the largest in the country. The Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) K-9 Comfort Dogs is a national canine ministry. “To our knowledge there is not another group like ours where each dog has multiple handlers and is owned by a ministry organiza- tion,” says Dana Yokum, of the Lutheran Church Charities. Lutheran Church Charities does disaster response, and this is what led to the comfort dogs. “It was dur- ing our response to Hurricane Katrina where we first saw the human/canine bond as people would not leave their homes without their pets,” recalls Yokum. “Ever since that time we have

been bringing Golden Retrievers out in local and national disasters. In August of 2008 we officially started with four Goldens—two we placed in churches and two we kept internally. It exploded at that point where we now have over 120 Comfort Dogs in 23 states.” The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in Orlan- do came from Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, Nebraska, Texas and South Carolina, and were accompanied by 20 handlers. Yokum explains that there are more handlers than dogs because the dogs love to work. “Having mul- tiple trained handlers allows them that opportunity by not being tied to one person’s availability.” The airlines don’t give them dis- counts on their flights, but allow the dogs to fly in cabin because of their humanitarian work. LCC is a 501(c)3 and is funded by donations, which help cover transportation and lodging. “LCC never goes anywhere we are not invit- ed,” says Yokum, “and we never charge those we serve! We are a faith-based ministry funded solely by donations.” All of LCC’s dogs are AKC Golden Retrievers. Anyone who has spent time with Goldens can attest to the fact that they are as golden-hearted as they come; it would be difficult to think of a better- suited breed for the job. Tim Hetzner, president of the LCC charity, explains Goldens have an innate desire to “love indiscriminately.” They’re smart, and love to please people. The LCC acquires the dogs, and they are all either owned by LCC or a church or school where they are placed. While our own dogs are usually our best com- fort dogs, these comfort dogs are spe- cially trained for the job. “We begin training at 8 weeks and train for 12 to 14 months before plac- ing them in an church or school, where caregivers who have a loving home are

determined and multiple handlers iden- tified and trained.” The dogs learn when it’s appropriate to approach somebody, how to ignore food (probably why Labs weren’t the breed of choice!) and even how to sit in laps without their elbows jabbing into people’s legs. They know not to bark, jump up or become agitated. They practice being well-mannered and safe whether riding on escalators or air- planes. They must accept a wide range of people of all different ages who are often acting hysterically, oddly or may have disabilities or injuries. Even peo- ple who are afraid of dogs will often watch the dogs for a few minutes, see their behavior, and come over to pet them, says Hetzner. But with all the grief counselors available, why dogs? Sure, we dog peo- ple get it, but are other people really so much like us when it comes to being comforted by canines? Turns out, yes. “We have learned that people appre- ciate the calming presence of our dogs and their handlers,” says Yokum. “They also appreciate having someone just being with them in their time of need. An important part of the healing pro- cess in any disaster or crisis situation (and many life situations) is to be able to talk about it. The LCC Comfort K-9 Dogs provide a safe setting to do that. Our Comfort Dogs are great listeners, are confidential, they do not take notes and are not judgmental.” Plus when they look happy to see you, you know they really are. Says Yokum, “There are so many people affected by tragedies such as the one in Orlando. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs have come alongside victims and their families, firefighters, EMTs, work- ers, medical personnel, co-workers, anyone who previously experienced violence, city workers, 911 person- nel and dozens more. The LCC K-9

“These sPecial grief counselors lisTen wiThouT giving advice, offer uncondiTional love and PROVIDE A WARM—AND FURRY— SHOULDER TO CRY ON.”

Comfort Dogs provide respite from whatever stress and anxiety they may be feeling. It’s medically proven that petting a dog lowers your heart rate and blood pressure. It also produces a stress relieving hormone in your body.” In Orlando, the dogs attended vigils and memorials, worked at counseling centers and hospitals, visited the medi- cal examiner and the mayor’s office and made themselves available on the streets of Orlando. They even consoled staff at the location of the tragedy, the nightclub The Pulse. These special grief counselors listen without giving advice, offer uncondi- tional love and provide a warm—and furry—shoulder to cry on. They allow people in distress to relax their guard and express their vulnerability to a non- judgmental being. Hetzner says that many people would start petting the dogs and break down crying.

And sometimes, they would start smiling. At the hospital many of the vic- tims couldn’t get out of their bed, so the dogs had to be brought up to them. Het- zner says they all started smiling, and in some cases, even started talking. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs are somewhat regrettably pros at their jobs, having brought comfort after tragedies such as tornadoes in Oklahoma, the school shooting in Newtown, Connecti- cut and the Boston Marathon bombing, among others. The dogs helped many of the people affected by shooting to open up. Het- zner related the story of one man who wasn’t talking to anyone. At first, he just stood there, but then slowly knelt down and started petting the dog. He asked a couple of questions about the dog and then volunteered that he’d lost his friend in the shooting. But it went further than that. After spending some more quiet time with the dog, he

revealed that he felt responsible for his friend’s death as he had invited him to visit from out of town and took him to the nightclub. Hetzner explains that a simple inter- action with a dog can turn into the start of healing, which begins with process- ing what they’ve been through—and the key to that processing is being able to share it. Comfort dogs are also known as emotional support dogs, and are now a familiar sight following trag- edies. They are not considered service dogs under the terms of the Americans With Disabilities Act, but often play an equally vital role. LCC expanded its canine com- fort dog mission in 2014 to a sepa- rate branch, Kare 9 Military Ministry, which brings comfort to military veter- ans and their families as well as active duty personnel.

JUDGING The TABle DOGS

by Arlene czech

I find our Toy Dog judges have no clue as to how to examine the table dog. All of the groups, with the exception of Working, have dogs that are tabled—not just Toys. Recently, I had taken my young Papil- lon—that had never been to a show—to our classes for experience. Since we teach conformation it is difficult to give our dogs a new outlook on judges. We felt fairly comfortable in entering him with limited experience. Mary Jo han- dled him; she put him on the table and set him up (you know the drill, fix one leg, then the other three move). Mean- while, unbeknownst to her, the judge approached the table and promptly put both hands around the dog’s head, as to cuddle him, bent her head towards him and brought her face right up to him, talking sweet talk. The dog freaked out and tried to climb up Mary Jo’s arms—it was almost a disaster. She managed to get him under control, showed his bite and then the judge could then go over the rest of the dog. Without realizing that this experience had left its mark on the dog, we went ahead and tried to show him the next weekend. It was another bad experience for us, but when we quickly explained to the judge what had happened previously she was extremely careful in her moves and he was able to be examined while held firmly. Of course he could not win anything, but he did get a little calmer. For the next set of shows he gradually improved as we explained to each judge what we were trying to accomplish. We also spent a lot of time walking around the shows having people touch him. It is not over yet; I do not expect him to be really ready to show by himself for at least a few more months. How do I know? This is not the first time I have had a dog spooked by a judge. Right now he is over 3 months of shows and getting better, somewhat still afraid the

judge will grab his head. Many of the judges commented that he was lovely on the ground and should be able to finish. I may go broke trying! Years ago, I had a little bitch on the table. She set herself up and the judge came over to do the examination. All was going quite nicely, again I was ignor- ing the judge while trying to reset her legs, when I noticed him reaching under her tail and she yipped as her grabbed her you know what. I said to the judge, “This is a bitch, sir,” as I picked her up. No way would she let him touch her again and we were excused. It took me a year to relax her in the ring enough to try for her championship. I did succeed finally by not exhibiting her under men. Being a judge myself, many times I have done something similar. After hours of judging, you get a rhythm and after the boys are judged, the girls come in. Sure enough as I am checking the body of the girl my hand goes to under the tail and I comment, “Oops it’s a girl,” and we laugh. There is no need to continue to search and we go on. No harm done and the dog was fine with the exam. Another instance happened when we were lined up for the judge to finally pick BOB and she came down the line slowly. But, she stooped over at each dog to get a closer look and the whole line went silly. We have been told that if we want to have a closer look at a small dog, have it or them placed back on the table. The dogs feel relaxed as they are table ready anyway. Hovering over them while on the floor makes them sense they are being attacked from above. What should you do when approach- ing a table dog? First, act like it is a floor dog, by that I mean just naturally walk up to the table, don’t creep or seem to be anxious. I have had many judges come right to the table with no fanfare. My dogs were ready. If you come to the front and put your hands out to go

over them, hold them palms up under the chin. Actually, since the AKC has instructed us to not examine the bites, I stop before I get to the table and ask to see the bite. I was amazed at the time not wasted in trying to reset the dog after examining the bite halfway through the exam. The exhibitors also agreed it was better to show the bite first and then set up the dog. As each new exhibitor set up on the table, they had the bite ready for me. Never put your hands over the head of a table dog, as they will think it is an eagle or some animal coming after them. Keep your hands on the side and go through your regular exam. Usually judges gradually drift to the side of the table to check on testicles. A quick touch and you will know all is there. Do not grab them, it natu- rally upsets them. This is really meant for some exhibits that express ner- vousness. You as the judge can tell which ones are not quite ready; the handler should have his/her dog well trained.
