I wonder if the 12 Politicians are reading what is in the news today about Dalmations, and I see Jemima Harrison has posted a comment under the news article.

Oh I just noticed German Shepherds are also in the news today, which I think the APGAW Politicians might happen to read today.

I think it is interest what Caroline Kisko mentions today, and is somewhat different to what she mentioned about a year ago, and today she is mentioning this.
Caroline Kisko, the secretary of the Kennel Club, said that action had to be taken. "German shepherd breeders do not accept they have a health problem and need to change the way they breed their dogs," she said. "They do not meet our standards and until we see some movement the challenge certificates are on hold."

Here is the link to the news article and have a read.
