Generally Speaking

Fantastic reports keep coming in from all over the world about the many successes of Australian dogs, and dogs produced from Australian parentage, including at the recent World Show and the Championnat de France event held at the same time.

We really want to pay tribute to all these great achievements and it is not possible to keep up with them just on hearsay and Facebook postings etc, so please do send us direct information by email accompanied by high resolution photos so we can accurately report them.

We will have our usual extensive pictorial spread of the World Show in our next issue. We also hope to have our traditional coverage of the recent German Shepherd National.

Congratulations to Margaret Joyce for being accepted as a member of The Kennel Club (UK). Membership is strictly limited. There are only 50 international members, just three of them from Australia. Members must be nominated by an existing member and undergo a thorough assessment before being granted membership. Miss Joyce is the first Australian woman to be granted this honour and is currently the only Victorian member of The Kennel Club.

Also from Victoria comes news that the management committee has resolved that ALL membership renewals during the period 1 October 2011 to 31 December 2012 will require the member to attach photo ID to the membership renewal. This is a once-off requirement and members will not be required to produce photo ID for an existing membership once it has been filed initially. It is also now a condition of membership that proof of residential address be provided when applying for membership of DOGS Victoria. Will other States also introduce this protocol?

The identification of Hendra Virus in a dog in Queensland has sounded alarm bells for all of us involved in the dog world and the possibility of yet another disease rearing its ugly head and potentially spreading is horrific to say the least.

Sad farewells to Leonie Darling, Frank Skilton, Lynn Oliver and Dawn Bennett in this issue, and we have just also heard of the passing of Dr Malcolm Willis in the UK and Tommy Briggs of Tanaba GSDs in the past few weeks, tributes will appear for them next month.

News from the UK that the Kennel Club Accredited Breeder Scheme has changed its name to Assured Breeder Scheme, more details next month.
