    OFCOM have still NOT Published their findings regarding the complaints lodged against the PDE documentary and here is the BBC still televising the documentary.

    This is interesting about BBC America and the following from this address.

    Wow, hard-hitting Today Show segment! Hope the show gets a wide viewership and these issues are debated in the US and by the AKC as well.

    Think tonight's programme is edited down by 10 min or so to fit in with US commercials... Always a hassle that an hour on TV is really more like 50 minutes in the US due to running ads.

    Default Pedigree Dogs Exposed on Today Show.

    Could I mention I have just watched this Program on on the Today Show.

    There was mention again about the Cavaliers' Head being too Small for their Brains.

    The Professor who was being interviewed ,said that how this has happened is because of Breeding for a Particular Skull Shape for a Cavalier can ,as has been seen, have devastating consequences .

    He also mentioned about the Dangers of In- Breeding, I will repeat again,..

    In the early 1980's there was quite a bit of Half-Brother to Half Sister Matings taking place in our Cavalier Breed.I have a number of Cavalier Pedigrees to prove this.

    In the 1970's there was matings between Father to Daughter and Mother to Son also taking place.I also have those Cavalier Pedigrees.

    The lady who was interviewing the Professor ,when she mentioned the SM Problem in our Cavalier Breed ,was so shocked and distressed about the Suffering it was causing Cavaliers.

    I think that as a result now ,after the full PDE Program is viewed in America, and seeing how SM is affecting Cavaliers ,the Public will be as shocked as the Interviewer was.

    I forgot to say that the Close Breeding Pedigrees I have ,are NOT from Puppy Farmers,but CKCS CLUB Breeders.I don't know whether it is still going on to-day ,I don't get the KC Breed Supplements any-more.

    Also Dr C, Rusbridge, Neurologist ,at the beginning of her interview for the TODAY Program, also stated that the Cavalier Heads are too Small for their Brains.

    It sure made interesting viewing for me.
