    That paragraph has been there since February 1. That's the irony. They post an announcement on February 1 that the new scheme "will launch in January 2012."

    Then they go on: "Full details will be posted shortly on the website". It has been over a month since that statement has been up there, and no details have been posted.

    Since then, there was the big announcement about PDE2 going to be broadcast, and the KC unveiled its so-called "health" video, all making the roll out of the CM/SM scheme ideally timed. And yet, BVA and KC let it all slip by. PDE2 was broadcast, and interestingly, PDE2 hailed the KC for this CM/SM scheme, assuming that it would have been released by the time PDE2 had broadcast.

    So now, the release of the "details" has slipped to Crufts. Oh yeah? We shall see, I guess.

    Oops, my mistake. Yes, BVA finally has posted the FAQs and the scheme. The scheme's diagram seems to be a dumbed-down version of the one that has been on Dr. Rusbridge's for several weeks -- not in colors and fewer columns.

    Well, it is underway. Let us hope it does not get ignored like the MVD breeding protocol has been in the US. It will be interesting to see if either of the US clubs post anything about it.

    I think the US clubs will ignore it. Maybe, even, they will devise their own protocols which call for no MRIs at all, but just feeling the back of the neck with the breeders' finger tips. That is about the equivalent of those clubs' MVD protocols.

    And, then maybe the CKCSC,USA will announce their protocol as "historic", like it did its bogus MVD protocol.

    I'm going to say a little solitary hooray for the BVA/KC scheme It's taken a lot of hard work by a lot of people over several years. It nearly got scuppered when some breeders dug their heels in about publication of results, but the KC and the BVA stood firm. It's already improved the grading system for MRIs, and it's a huge step in the right direction - after a lot of foot-dragging and trying to go off in wrong directions.

    So thank you to everyone involved

    I agree, Kate -- it is an important development.

    Yes, and then no doubt will note that their observations about their own half dozen fingertip-tested dogs outweigh results taken from 550+ dogs that have been MRI'd, and give a much clearer picture about a medical condition than that pesky, pesky peer reviewed scientific data...
