Crufts 2009 and BBC

Well, today I read that BBC will not transmit this year the notorius event of Crufts ( you can see here the news http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2008/12_december/12/crufts.shtml)

Consider by many a event to big as the world dog show, it is a pity that has be banned and unconsidered by the notorious BBC network.

In spite of I always being complained by some point of the dog show organization, having a notorious lack of interested by the animal health and lack of sociability of some animals, that doesn’t mean that isn’t so sad such amazing event just be put aside.

Yes, maybe this will be the push to change mentalities and the way some breeds are seen when taken to dog shows and yes maybe people minds will change and not only the physical, but also the character, health and work components will become requirements to the main title.

Personaly, I am blessed by balanced healthy social dogs and I try to keep their social and work component, and I don’t see why the some shouldn’t be asked to the other breeders.

I also cannot understand why the so call “veterinarian inspection” in a dog show, beside checking vaccines and chip, don’t check the heart, breading, eyes, hears, temperature, like our one vets do in a checkup.

What I can say is that the BBC story, despite of pointing the finger to certain breeds and their prejudicial selection just because of looks, this story also brought to all of us breeders a curtain of undemanding the work we do.

And like there is breeders that don’t act in the proper way and should be punish, there are also the ones that fight to give a better quality of live to their dogs, perform health exams before breeding and give all possible conditions to a new coming litter, and this one’s deserve respect and consideration.
