And with everything.
Decide what is your purpose.
So you believe in USRC. Try and talk some people into joining the club and tell them why they should pay the club some money for a membership and what they will get in return.
BSL is in all our back yards. Staring us flat in the face. Hook up with someone, if you do not belong with a club, show them what you know, start doing obedience together.
Find a local schutzhund club to join - DVD, USRC, GSSCC, USA. The people I met today. 3 new members. I told them we had no affiliation currently but would be GSSCC soon. They had absolutely no concept of what I was talking about. It was over their head. Two were GSD puppies, one was a 5 year old CH Rott where the owner wants to get into something now that she is not going to show him anymore.
I said with the 5 year old. Maybe she can get a SchH 1 title. Most likely not, given age of dog and novice handler but it will be a great road.
USRC maybe became international by joining IFR but in exchange they booted their only international affiliation by booting their international clubs, all to be "international".
No logic. No merit.
Personal agenda. Vendicitive. Mean. Witch hunt.
As a result, USRC is no longer an international organization. And they are now trying to support the fact the international clubs were expelled so USRC could have an international face only people forgot to ask if USRC would actually have a voice.
It is sad for USRC. Sad for the breed in that country. Very sad for USRC as a whole as USRC just voted to expell its international face.
New organizations will form.
The Rottweiler is in all countries. In a perfect world. All show judges would be recognized by each other. All breed tests would be recognized, but this would mean there could be only one test and there would be zero tolerance for any deviation to rules.
I heard President instructed the helper at Nationals to come from the bushes and not the blind. Rules state it must be from a blind.
Ok. President obviously is incapable of following USRC judging rules when he holds a USRC judge's license.
This is most likely why no club invites him period to judge.
Liz or Chuck could invite him, or Laurie, or Pam. Erika could possibly get her club to move from forming status which it has been since 2000, but she is a member of Laurie's club which is not even located in the same area. Janay possibly could hold a BST and invite Wayne to judge as I heard she likes taping BST's so they are done correctly. Perhaps she could hold a BST event at whatever club she belongs to? They are President's buddies. Perhaps they could invite him so he is not in violation of current USRC rules and he is president.
I just listed 6 on the slate who could plan a show or a BST and invite President to judge.
Judges just have to be invited to one event in a 12 month calendar period to keep within USRC rules.
All these clubs on the east coast. A lot who are also EB members.
So why are not your clubs inviting President to judge your show or BST? USRC judges do have a minimum number of judging assignments they must do to maintain their judge's license.
USRC President is currently in violation of USRC rules.
So what surprises us? I am sure a waiver will be presented now that this matter has been made problem and the slate will take care of putting in a ballot so he does not have to judge.
Wayne could perhaps tell us a club he has been invited to judge in the next few years?
I think everyone sees the writing on the wall pretty clear.
Just a thought.
I am very disappointed with how USRC has conducted itself this past year. Very unprofessional to say the least. Very sad.
I no longer believe in USRC such as the pedestal I held the club to. I believed it was a club that was professional, followed rules. Something to believe in. I just experienced this past year what USRC is all about.
So they booted my club. I am suspended.
I have owned some super dogs. Two have come in the #10 in USA, #1 in Canada. ABST, CH. SchH titled. My young female is the best female I have ever owned. I very much seriously doubt I will ever attend a BST with her and I can see right now she is an ABST dog. I can also see she is SchH 3 material. She will most likely never again trial at another USRC trial.
This will be my choice. Once my 6 month suspension is up by Liz, Wayne and cronies.
I just am done with all the political garbage Liz, Wayne and slate has shown what the club is all about.
Perhaps they can attract a new member with the same goal.
I am very sad as I donated so many hours to the club and time is precious to us all. We only get this one shot at life we call time. Sometimes. You walk away. This is the best choice and then you move forward in whatever direction that direction is.
I just feel that all the thousands of hours I donated to the club and for the breed was a total and complete waste of time. The only good thing was I was on the schutzhund committee when we got the working judge's rules in place.
But we just all saw USRC is incapable of even following simple procedure that all organizations must follow to hold a meeting in order.
It is very sad for USRC what has been allowed to happen, due to political reasons, who certain EB members are buddies with other EB members and they choose to exclude the EB as a whole as they are operating on personal agenda.
It is time for the slate. Wayne. Liz. Pam. Erika. Janay. Samantha. Stephen. Chuck. Dan. Brian. To step away.
There is no need to bring anything public with other EB members as the slate between them can decide action to take on any political issue and can decide how the club will proceed.
Clubs elected a slate. Clubs elected a monopoly. And it is not like it should be a surprise to anyone.
Let the rest of the people who truly care about the breed and the club, to try and regroup and rebuild after the great harm slate has caused to USRC as an organization and to the international world.
I just am so very sad as USRC is a club I strongly supported with my personal free time and is a club I believed in.
I do not support USRC such as it is under current leadership and the slate.
Liz. When you make an allegation. So you stated I am a liar. Prove it. I am pretty sure I can prove who tells truth and who tells falsehood.
It really is time for you to step down. You have helped the club quite enough. Many people (general members of course) hold the same opinion of me.
I do not count. I am currently suspended
It really is time for you to step down and perhaps find another hobby more suitable such as cooking or something.
I would point out I have no financial gain in the Rottweiler world currently how things stand. I have been in the breed for 15 years and I am a schutzhund person. I am not a breeder. Never had a litter, most likely never will as the though of puppies gives me a stomach ache and I would classify that as high stress as I would feel responsible for any puppies I produced for life, no matter what, I can only have so many dogs and 4 is my max.
I choose not to breed. I have had CH/SchH3/ABST (Koreung) dogs.
With breedings comes respopnsibility when you have to take puppies back where they don't work out and then you have a mess to clean up to train and replace the puppy and this is what happens if a good dog is sold to an inexperienced home who does not have a schutzhund club to help them with their dog.
I have never produced a puppy from any male or female and I have had the top schutzhund dogs in Canada, plus they had their CH & ABST (Koerung) and 3 have probably made the top 10 schutzhund in USA the past 6 years.
I am not a breeder.
I do appreciate training. I do appreciate conformation. I do appreciate the responsibilities of being a breeder.
I believe strongly in working aspect of Rottweiler as I am a schutzhund person. Susan, who has won the highest level possible in USA and Canada in show with her dogs, and who is president of my club which I am training director of. She tells me I just see the bite. I tell her she just sees the show.
Both are equal value. The perfect Rottweiler is one who V rates in the work and V rates in the show.
susan is starting to think tails are normal. She will drop her USRC membership in 2010 when she is required to dock. Luka had 9 puppies. Susan is keeping one. The other 8 are going to show homes in USA. Several Susan will co-own. All are professional and proven show homes.
Susan has asked all to try and get a breed survey title on their puppies plus a schutzhund title and has recommended the dogs be sent to Andreas for the titles if the people just are not interested.
Susan is president of my club that just got booted. She is very influential in AKC as she has had #1 AKC dog. It was 7 years ago. His daughter has done pretty good and she has hardly shown her as she was busy getting the BH & SchH 1 & CDX on Luka. Susan likes show. She also appreciates value to the working aspect.
USRC just kicked me and Susan out only went one step further me by expelling me as I made comment concerning USRC and I received a letter from USRC stating I was not allowed to mention the club.
All the power to USRC.
A letter will not stop my opinion. Nor will suspension. I have joined GSSCC and have requested for my 3 scorebooks to be transferred to GSSCC.
I will never again hold a USRC score book.
I have never sired a litter. Never whelped a litter. Never sold one single puppy.
I have yet to make one single penny from my association with the Rottweiler or with USRC. Actually. If anyone wants to check my records. I have donated thousands and thousands of dollars to USRC. Plus thousands of my hours of free time and time is precious to us all.
I have no sympathy for people like Liz or Pam who try to make people think we should be grateful for them as they are volunteers.
So step down. There are higher qualified indiviudals, who are more than capabable of doing much better jobs, given both of your job performances for the club this past year. With both stepping down, the club could only move forwards.
Perhaps decide to spend the time with kids/horses/birds/goats.
Give someone qualified a chance at the breed to represent the breed on EB who is not in Wayne's pocket.
It would not be a bad thing at all if such a situation were to happen. Doubtful, but in a perfect world, this would happen.
