The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

Economic life blood of the American Kennel Club

Patrick Burns of the crusading blog; "Terrierman's Daily Dose" has hit a home run with his latest post:

AKC returns to Petland to sell puppy mill dogs

Hammering away at the AKC and their greedy, shameful support of puppy mills, he has exposed the AKC's latest program to register puppy mill dogs through stores like Petland. He asks these good questions:

Who thinks dogs should be raised in cages?

Who sanctions "bred until dead" as a defensible business model?

...and then he names names. Come on people. We outright kill somewhere between 2 and 3 million unwanted dogs in our country every year. Please do not not breed or buy while shelter pets die. Put the mills out of business! When you watch the Westminister Dog Show, you support the cruelty shown in this video. When you register a puppy with the AKC, you support the cruelty. When you attend an AKC show or event as a participant, spectator or vendor, you support the cruelty. Stop the madness.
