There is a problem in Rottweilers with judges ignoring our breed standard in the AKC show ring.

Our standard clearly states DOCKED SHORT. The American Rottweiler Club judges education committee has clearly informed judges that the position of the ARC is that the Rottweiler is a DOCKED BREED, and that undocked specimens do not conform to our breed standard.

Still there are judges who ignore this.

I guess MY position on the issue is not hard to figure out, huh?

Are there un-docked Rottweilers that are in the ring, or ones that are docked longer than normal?

Congratulations on the success of your litter, and your success getting them all into great homes that are following through with all the testing!

Dogs are being shown with natural tails.

My final comment on this issue.

You already know I love your dogs, and you really should be proud.

How strangely relevant that seems in light of the last couple of days here, Renee.

Puppy number 5 just went into up onto the page. This one was the Orange collar puppy, the one I called "Bruce". He got his heart certification put up today.

Off topic, but why can't I get into the trivia tournament with the log in I created and verified? Sorry, as you were and congrats on Bruce-ay!

Worth shedding a tear or two over. (Happy tears of course.) I wish I could trace my dogs' OFA stuff that far back. Of course, in my breed, the automatic assumption is that they are healthy and don't need testing.
