Good for The Kennel Club.

So my reaction to the BBC would be "Fuck off." I can't fathom a broadcasting company thinking it has a right to dictate dog breed standards.

Crufts 2009 Goes On Without the BBC

12-Dec-08

Today the Kennel Club confirmed that it and the BBC will be unable to continue working together in 2009 for the broadcast of the world’s greatest celebration of dogs, Crufts, which in previous years has attracted over 14 million viewers in the UK and additional audiences worldwide. This position was reached after the Kennel Club regrettably had to refuse to comply with the unreasonable demands insisted on by the BBC, to exclude certain breeds of dog from the group competition at the show. These demands took no account of the measures the Kennel Club has in place to improve the health of pedigree dogs, or of the fact that judges will be trained to help ensure that all dogs being awarded prizes at Crufts will be healthy representatives of their breed.

Oh man. I'm not in the UK and I'm no longer showing/breeding dogs, but this pisses me off in spades.

BBC drops Crufts from schedule

I have no clue. I just saw this this morning off of one of my feeds. What I can't fathom is why dachshunds aren't on that list. If you want to talk congenital issues, look at dachshund backs. There's a reason the vets call them "back dogs."

Yes, according to the second article:

"In October pet food firm Pedigree withdrew its sponsorship of the show while the RSPCA and the Dogs Trust also withdrew their support for the event. "
