Title collectors, your dog's FULL name?

A long name is a thing of beauty and the reward of countless hours of blood, sweat and tears. Tell us your dog's "legal" name and share what it all means if you're so inclined. :) http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y74/bahamutt99/Loki_Jedi/154540_172417136110805_100000275600797_498975_244839...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

I wonder how this will affect APBT top producers. A lot of those dogs are sitting on a stack of weight pull titled offspring.

That's what I use, too. I got a 2-pack at Lowes in case the first one ever dies.

Re: hey

Guys, I don't see where she was catty at all, unless there is edited content that I missed. And calling her catty does qualify as calling her something. lol To be frank, she didn't seem to get defensive until the 2nd page -- after being called catty for saying that she does have goals for her dogs, ...

Re: Training Goals for 2011????

Loki is a little tired of him. I put them out for potties together on nice days and they play together. But I'm starting to limit their time together because as he gets bigger she is getting more testy with him. But overall they get along with sensible precautions. As for Terra, she hasn't been with...

Re: Training Goals for 2011????

Oooo,do you have a new puppy? :) I do and I don't. He is not mine as in MINE as in name-on-the-papers and all that. But he's "mine" in spirit. Lives in my room, goes to work with me, tries to push me out of bed once in a while when I let him sleep up there. Technically, he belongs to Matr...

Re: Training Goals for 2011????

Loki - UCDX. She needs 2 legs. Terra - UWPCH. She needs 20 pts. UKC CH. She needs 2 competition wins. ADBA CH. She needs 43 pts. UROI. We haven't started on this one, but she can do it. Superman - Get a little more housebroken. He's been doing good so far. Step into the UKC ring and have fun showing...

Oklahoma statewide - SB 362 to remove Anti-BSL

From the BSL list. Please crosspost. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey has introduced a bill (Cody's Law) that would eliminate the language prohibiting breed specific ordinances in Oklahoma. The bill has been set to be introduced at a first reading on February 2, 2011. You can tra...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

I was at an awesome weight pull this last weekend. Had a great time, got points, put a UWP on a novice dog, got two CGCs also. Capped off by someone filing a complaint against the club for spurious reasons, and nothing even related to why he was pissed in the first place. It is a real shame that the...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

Manu, I'm not saying that any UKC sport is really competitive. One could argue that even their conformation is weak in many locales. (Like down here, we're lucky if there are enough class dogs to get a competition win.) I'm just saying that by doing away with a sport completely, they undermine their...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

Why are you comparing AG HIT to a class placement in WP?It should be more like HIT=MWP/MWPP...and I never said you should earn points only if you earn those.But yes,for the Total dog,you should be placed. So maybe HIT wasn't the right example. A better example would be a placement on either side. I...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

You suggested that sports like agility and obedience were superior for proving the total dog because of the amount of work that goes into them. What I was pointing out was that if you get a 170 in obedience, you get your qualifying leg. You don't have to get HIT to qualify. So why should only the do...

Re: UKC Weightpull Change

Once you get to the Grand classes, your points are based on placements. IMO, I think that's part of the problem. Creation of over-competitivenes. As for the scenario described, really, does it matter? If someone is there for their title and they want to stop at 45x, fine. If they want to keep going ...
