Pensioner Evicted From Crufts
by hutch on 15 March 2010 - 09:09
|Please show your support for Pam Edgington who was ejected from Crufts because an official said the KC "don't want to promote that type of GSD". (See thread Crufts 2010 blog for details)|
Pam is distraught at the way she was treated.
I have made comment on Our Dogs Facebook - Just Fans page - please reply to it and let's see if we can get some National coverage for this outrage.

|shirley,seeing as im a dummy.how do i log onto to that page.i think this is a disgusting thing to do to anyone,let alone a pensioner.no doubt if this was one of us who had done this,we most likely would be brought in front of their disiplinary board as bringing the dog world into disrepute.IMO THIS SHOWS THAT IT HAS NOUGHT TO DO WITH THE DOGS HEALTH,MORE TO DO WITH GETTING RID OF THE TROUBLESOME GERMAN SIDE OF ALSATIANS (GSDS)AS THEY WANT.i was so angry yesterday anyway with their atrocious behaviour towards our B.O.B.,but this tops it.FOR GAWD SAKE IT WAS A 5 MONTH OLD PUPPY,WOT DO THEY WANT OR EXPECT AT THIS AGE,A MINI ADULT DOG.Carole.|

|I'll bet the KC had no problems taking money to register the dog - typical KC double standards. Hope it does go national not only the despicable treatment to Pam and her pet but also the fact that the KC took money from her to register the dog.|
Chin up Pam you have alot of supporters here.

|What possible reason could they have for actually asking her to leave the show building, this beggars belief. This should not be allowed to pass unchallenged, it is despicable!!!I honestly can't get my head round this one!!! |

|It seems that KC rules for the team that Pam was in do not allow pups under 6 months - |
but this was not Pam's error, it was the team organisers
and it was not the reason that Pam was given for being sent away from the show.
She now feels silly as well as humiliated - cheer up Pam, you still have our support

|As we said to the numpties signing this KC document - TIP OF THE ICEBERG|
anyone that has advised signing up to this dictatorial piece of nonsense will have to accept this by and by - and more - because you signed on the dotted line.
Pam - you did as you were asked by your display team, the reasons given were from the jobsworthies with their notebooks, looking for glory - sad souls - you were sent out of a venue in the middle of Birmingham on your own, without the display team around you - to find your way back to Staffordshire !!!! forget GSD`s here - what about Health and Safety.
Kennel Club - do you do Risk Assessments?

was it in the us or the uk ??

|clint,this was in the u.k. at the kennel club,s own show CRUFTS.they also degraded our best of breed winner on the tv program afterwards,which was aired on Saturday night(march 13th).the gsd which was of the international type was discussed between an ex amateur jockey and a kennel club clerical person who owns siberian huskies.this male is completely unexaggerated,has the correct movement ,is sound despite what was said on the program and has all the health tests required.he also has his sch.3 title and has been koerunged in germany.the reason this is all happening here in the uk is because of another program which was aired here in the uk a year or so ago called PEDIGREE DOGS EXPOSED.i believe it was aired in the us last year.this supposedly showed our best of breed for 2008,being SIEGER ZAMP VOM THERMODOS,but in fact it was a male which was exhibited at MANCHESTER CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW IN JAN.2008.since then the presenters and kennel club officials have slagged off our best of breeds and all because the gsd fraternity WANT THEM TO ONLY REGISTER PUPPIES FROM HEALTH TESTED PARENTS.they are a disgrace not only to the dog world but to the human race for their actions to an old lady and her puppy.if this was my mum or granny i would be taking it further.KENNEL CLUB YU ARE A DISGRACE AND HAVE BROUGHT THE WORLD OF DOGS INTO DISCREPENCY,YU SHOULD TAKE YOURSELVES BEFORE YOUR OWN DISCIPLINARY BOARD.WHAT HAVE YU TO SAY FOR YOURSELF.A VERY ANGRY GSD OWNER/EXHIBITOR.Mrs.Carole Spelman RHEINMEISTER GSDS.|

|it as come to my knowlege that the old lady went to a bagsd branch club meeting yesterday and now is more upset she as been told that she should not have gone to the public and as bowed to them and no one can help her get her apology from the club|
she as apparently told people that a " top man" has intervened and she is afraid AW speak up if you have gone this low
