- RSPCA BOYCOTTING CRUFTS! - what are people's opinions on this??? ?
- Q: this was from a guardian article:The RSPCA is to boycott Crufts because of concerns within the organisation that the show's judging criteria encourages the breeding of "deformed and disabled" dogs. The animal welfare charity, whose patron is the Queen, said the competition promoted breeding methods that were "morally unjustifiable", and announced yesterday that it would no longer hire a stand at the world's biggest dog show, as it has done for the past four years.The move comes after a BBC documentary last month alleged that unhealthy, and sometimes inbred, dogs were winning best in breed competitions at the show.Pedigree Dogs Exposed showed a prize-winning Cavalier King Charles spaniel with syringomyelia, a condition which occurs when a dog's skull is too small for its brain. It also featured boxer dogs suffering from epilepsy, pugs which had breathing problems and bulldogs which were unable to mate or give birth unassisted. The documentary has strained relations between the Kennel Club, the organisers of Crufts, and the BBC, which has been broadcasting from the event for more than 40 years.The BBC has appointed a scientific panel to assess the evidence in the film. The corporation has a contract to broadcast the Crufts show, which will next take place in March, for the next two years.The Kennel Club was infuriated by what it claims was a "biased and selective" documentary. Minutes of a meeting from the club's general committee published last week said: "It is inevitable that this programme has put strains on the relationship between the KC and the BBC. Legal constraints prevent us at this stage from going into details of how that will move forward."The RSPCA's chief veterinary adviser, Mark Evans, said: "Dog shows using current breed standards as the main judging criteria actively encourage both the intentional breeding of deformed and disabled dogs and the inbreeding of closely related animals. Intentionally breeding deformed and disabled animals is morally unjustifiable and has to stop." He added: "There is compelling scientific evidence that the health and welfare of hundreds of thousands of pedigree dogs is seriously compromised as a result."The Kennel Club said the comments were "unhelpful" and rejected the accusation that Crufts puts looks above the health of dogs. Its spokeswoman, Caroline Kisko, said the club was "dedicated to improving the health and welfare of dogs through responsible breeding and will continue to use Crufts as a platform to educate breeders and the public about the importance of joining us on this quest".Nick Blayney, president of the British Veterinary Association, said the Kennel Club could do more to promote healthy breeding. But he added that "rooftop diplomacy" was "not the best way of changing practices of some dog breeders".im sure there are mixed views, just wanted to know what people thought on the matter - as for me im kinda undecided but for now im with the RSPCA's decision....
- A: I watched that documentary and although it could be said to be biased, it did raise some very interesting points that the kennel club have yet to answer.For example, it is very easy to blame a few rogue breeders for in-breeding, but what are they are really doing to prevent it. They get all the paperwork from the breeder so they can trace family lines.Not only that, the winner of best in show in 2006 was a Pekingese who had to be sat on an ice pack as the breed can fatally over heat. This was know at the time and the ice pack could be seen under the dog when it was beside the trophy. If the BBC were correct, then why was this dog considered to be best in show when it has a potentially fatal condition?I think the RSPCA is right to pull out as if they attend it is the same as supporting the Kennel club and right or wrong, they must do what they believe to be right.I have read the breed descriptions of dogs and all of them are based on looks and none mention that the dog has to be physically healthy and fit for purposeWe have border collies and they are free of the whole pedigree nonsense. If we bred a dog with three heads like the one from Greek mythology, no one would care as long as it could round up a flock of sheep. Farmers don't care about looks if the animal is good at its job.
- Westminster Dog Show and PETA?
- Q: so I was talking to a good friend about this last night because we end up on the PETA subject while talking about Penn and Teller. Like I normally do I go to the PETA site to see what they are up to and to figure out if they are going to be in my area anytime soon.So like they have become so fond of they were protesting outside of the dog show with their AKC/KKK BS. As an owner of purebreds, the daughter of a responsible breeder and just a rational human in general i'm seriously ticked off and disturbed by their train of thought.This is DIRECT from their site and blog http://blog.peta.org/archives/kkk_akc_leaflets.pdf"In the pursuit of "purity," some breeders kill dogs who are not the "right" color." I have yet to meet ANY reputable breeder since my mother got involved when I was younger who has EVER culled a pup for off coloring."Meanwhile, a growing overpopulation crisis is forcing pounds and animal shelters to destroy an increasing number of mutts" Yeah because there are NO purebreds in the shelters right?"-it shouldn't be surprising that as many as one in four purebred dogs is plagued with a serious genetic health problem. For example, beagles such as Uno, last year's winner of the AKC's Best in Show category, have a much higher risk of hypothyroidism, hip dysplasia, and epilepsy." - Last time i checked there were TESTS for these problems and reputable breeders were working to eliminate these and other problems from the gene pool"The AKC's fetish for body image causes dogs health problems that mutts don't usually have," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. "The AKC is directly responsible for the promotion of purebreds, which means money for breeders but creates sick dogs and vet bills for their guardians--and leaves pound pups homeless." Bull and shytewhats worse they were dressed as Klan members. I can honestly say I probably would have gotten in trouble had I been in attendance and saw this, actually I KNOW I would have gotten in trouble.Seriously what does PETA think they stand to gain from this? Don't they realize that its stuff like this. the sea kittens and EVERYTHING else they do that makes people tune out everything they have to say?Anyone else agree that dog owners; mutt and purebred need to stand up to these idiots and tell them to shut up?P M - I think we should put them ALL on the same boat and sink it.It like every year they get more and more extreme. They should all go work for Bill O'riley they way thy spin the truthRotten - that why you wear SAP gloves when you do it. And yeah the majority have had way too much of the AR Kool-aid.Anyone else notice they have at lest stopped lying about whether they recruit kids or not?Rescue - Personally I think PETA, BYBs and puppymills are all a problem. PETA isn't helping anyone or anything, just themselves.
- A: Most so called PETA nuts that I have honestly tried to have a conversation with came across as card carrying nuts that act like they didn't make it all the way back from that "last trip". I have no idea why they result is this completely asinine tactic that would be so offensive to the average rational person. LOL those gloves do come in handy, the lack of National Guard didn't hurt either, however they removed several of them.I encountered them last year at Westminster. I encountered them when I worked Katrina, they honestly said the animals would be better off dead. That's not what you tell volunteers working 24/7 in stinking water. Several of them, all of a sudden had broken noses but the other rescuers or I have no idea how it happened. As bad as it was down there they choose to ***** instead of help, they wouldn't even help the people.Consider the source, and as hard as it is try to ignore the stupidity. Its better than having bruised knuckles.
- who hates political correctness?
- Q: bah bah rainbow sheep - bah bah black sheepchalk board - black boardmind map - brain stormbald - hair disadvantagedbody odor - nondiscretionary fragrance retarded - mentally challengedjanitor - environmental hygienist The Top Politically inCorrect Words and Phrases for 2005:1. Misguided Criminals for Terrorist: The BBC attempts to strip away all emotion by using what it considers neutral descriptions when describing those who carried out the bombings in the London Tubes. The rub: the professed intent of these misguided criminals was to kill, without warning, as many innocents as possible (which is the common definition for the term, terrorist).2. Intrinsic Aptitude (or lack thereof) was a suggestion by Lawrence Summers, the president of Harvard, on why women might be underrepresented in engineering and science. He was nearly fired for his speculation.3. Thought Shower or Word Shower substituting for brainstorm so as not to offend those with brain disorders such as epilepsy.4. Scum or "la racaille" for French citizens of Moslem and North African descent inhabiting the projects ringing French Cities. France's Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, used this label to describe the young rioters (and by extension all the inhabitants of the Cites). 5. Out of the Mainstream when used to describe the ideology of any political opponent: At one time slavery was in the mainstream, thinking the sun orbited the earth was in the mainstream, having your blood sucked out by leeches was in the mainstream. What's so great about being in the mainstream?6. Deferred Success as a euphemism for the word fail. The Professional Association of Teachers in the UK considered a proposal to replace any notion of failure with deferred success in order to bolster students self-esteem.7. Womyn for Women to distance the word from man. This in spite of the fact that the term man in the original Indo-European is gender neutral (as have been its successors for some 5,000 years). 8. C.E. for A.D.: Is the current year A.D. 2005 or 2005 C.E.? There is a movement to strip A.D. (Latin for Year of our Lord) from the year designation used in the West since the 5th century and replace it with the supposedly more neutral Common Era (though the zero reference year for the beginning of the Common Era remains the year of Christs birth).9. "God Rest Ye Merry Persons" for "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen": A Christmas, eh, Holiday, carol with 500 years of history is not enough to sway the Anglican Church at Cardiff Cathedral (Wales) from changing the original lyrics.10. Banning the word Mate: the Department of Parliamentary Services in Canberra issued a general warning to its security staff banning the use of the word 'mate' in any dealings they might have with both members of the Parliament and the public. What next? banning Down Under so as not to offend those living in the Up Over.Holiday Bonus: Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings for Christmas (which in some UK schools now label Wintervale. (In the word X-Mas, the Greek letter 'Chi' represented by the Roman X actually stands for the first two letters of the name Christ.) WHY ?????not answersdiscussion points please :)
- A: I detest political correctness only slightly less than the people who propagate it.Many years ago I heard a lecturer say "Those who control the definition of something control its resolution." Wise words, and highly relevant to PC.Wishy washy people cannot abide absolutes - either of character, or mental/physical condition.To label a child retarded effectively delegates it to psychiatry. To call it "challenged" leaves it in the PAID care of well meaning, nice, prim and proper teachers."Failure" is even worse. It might imply that the teacher as well has the child has failed, and we certainly can't have that idea floating around.In my despondency I sometimes wonder if the servicemen who climbed into the landing craft, planes and warships to go against the foe would have done so as gladly if they could have foreseen their Western homelands as they would become some 60 years later.Or if they could have foreseen the culture and traditions that they were fighting for beaten down by the generations that followed them. I think not.That's not to say that those brave young men didn't have a kind of PC of their own. It's just that in those days, as in the centuries that preceded them, it was called good manners and politeness.Finally, some fifty years ago I heard Alexander King - the Toastmaster General - say "The thing I hate about racism is that it prevents me from calling a black man a villain when, by his actions, he clearly is one." This was long before the expression Political Correctness was ever heard of.
