This way for the breeders to still have KC status they would have to test their stock?
    I am so sorry to hear about Ruby. I hope she is back to give you a cuddle soon.

    I'm glad you and Jess feel angry about what is going on. Keep that indignation. You are very important, you are the future, and cavaliers ( all purebred dogs in fact ) need young people like you who are motivated enough to get involved in fighting the welfare issues that affect pedigree dogs.

    Well done for going onto the KC website, you will be more effective if you learn all you can, so you have a sound base of facts to lend weight to what you say.

    Tomorrow I will try and explain a little about the very flawed Accredited Breeders Scheme, but I have done too much typing today & my arthritic fingers are having some welfare issues of their own.

    You do realize that Rusbridge breeding protocol does NOT require that both dogs are MRI'd. OR that they both even pass clear of SM... right.

    Yes I am aware, im one of the lucky ones who has her as our neurologist.
    I was making a sugestion of what could be done and it was mearly a sugestion and some breeders I have spoken to already use her breeding guidelines. I hope that if and when the EBV scheme starts that everyone gets on board although I find that unlikely as some people like I said fail to admit there is a problem!
    I can sense that there is a distinct divide between breeders and concerned owners and it is that divide that is causing the problems for our little dogs, mine being one of them. Until that break is fixed then there really is no point in trying to do anything x

    I've just been reading about EBVs and for those of you in the UK, Carol Fowler has some very direct ways you can help. Here is the link:
