One footnote from the San Rafael. The Sir Feancis Drake Kennel Club asks that all concerned dog owners listen to the Ron Owens radio show on San Francisco KGO tomorrow between 9:00 AM & 12:00 noon tomorrow.

Among his guests will be representatives from People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who will be peddling their special brand of social engineering by promoting California SB250, the so called Pet Responsibility Act, which will be a severe infringement on dog lovers. If you live outside the Bay Area, you can listen to the program at and you can call in and tell them what you think about their attempts to deprive you of a pure bred dog. Ron’s number is (415) 808-0810.

Feel free to us my favorite talking points against anti breeder/dog owner legislation:
  • This bill will costs jobs. If there are fewer animals sold in California, there will be jobs lost in the lucrative pet supplies/support market, a $45B industry that has thus far been recession proof. The pet industry in California employs people at pet supply stores, boarding kennels, and grooming shops, small jobs in a segment of the labor force most hard hit by current economic problems.
  • This bill will not be self funding. San Mateo County California has had such laws for over 20 years and they have not had one self funding year. The proponents of this law have mislead you on this point.
  • This bill will have a detrimental effect on many of our rarest breeds. Thirty of the AKC registered breeds have less than 200 registrations nationally each year, making these breeds more endangered than Polar Bears, Lowland Gorillas, or Grey Whales, none of which are kept by the typical Californian. The American Foxhound, a breed developed by George Washington, and symbolic of our nation’s beginnings had only 51 registered.
  • This bill is another unnecessary intrusion into American’s homes. Are you aware that 63 percent of American households keep pets?
  • PETA is an extremist fringe group whose aim is to eliminate all ownership of pets. Visit their web site and see if you share their beliefs such and then tell you favorite media outlet to stop giving them free publicity.


We have an exhibitor’s report from the Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club in San Rafael CA that Carl Gomes has chosen the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Paray Cirque Du Soleil, as his Best In Show.
