Arthur: It was ME you talked to via phone at the Mines show. I can understand that MKA would not allow its members to participate in dog shows, but what I am talking about is a Fun Match, which is unsanctioned and solely for training purposes albeit FUN. I have not yet seriously talked to anyone at MKA about this yet, but if MKA has specialty clubs, maybe they are not averse to all-breed clubs. There are some breeds here that are not large enough in number to warrant a specialty club and these owners would benefit from an all-breed club. However, we shall have to wait and see what MKA has to say on the matter. Fun matches would be only a small part of an all-breed club and if not allowed, need not be a part of the club at all. Anyway there may not be enough people interested so it could be a moot point. I will keep you posted on what I find out.
Re: [arthur] How about an all breed dog club?

Meanwhile, there is a question I have that maybe you would be kind enough to answer for me. If there is only one dog of a particular breed entered in an MKA show, the dog can possibly go Best of Breed. Does it therefore pick up a CC? I would think that it did not, but one owner I talked to at the show assured me this was the case and her dog had a CC although there was no other dog/bitch of the breed competing. The dog in question was a poor specimen of the breed and, in my humble opinion, not worthy of a CC. Can you clear up this for me?
The reason I am not clear yet on all these issues is because, as you probably know, the AKC shows are very different. Thanks in advance.
When I go to Heaven, if there are no dogs and horses there, then I want to go where they go!
