Open Letter to the UScA in regards to the USA Sieger Show
by MARKOPOLO on 21 June 2012 - 23:42
I think a month is long enough to let the dust settle on the USA Sieger Show and the travesty that took place in the Working Class Females, WHEN WILL THE ADMINISTRATION of the UScA PUT AN END TO Johannes Grewes and the BS !!!!!! Tim Burke,Mary Dygert and the rest of the administration MUST STOP THE UNETHICAL PRACTICES OF GREWES ! Is it acceptable to BUY A FEMALE WITH A TERRIBLE SHOW RECORD IN GERMANY AND MAKE HER SIEGEREN ?????? Will you all sit idly by and allow this to go unpunished is that why you say nothing and worse yet DO NOTHING ! It is your responsibility to assure all members of this Club have a fair and even playing field and when your Chief Judge or whatever his title is does as he pleases and there is no consequences what message are you sending to all who play by the rules ? SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOUR IS WHAT IT IS AND YOU WHO DO NOTHING SHOULD ALSO BE STRIPPED OF YOUR POSITIONS !

|Might as well say this too if a dog comes off the sleeve in a trial then that exercise is insufficient. Why do they get a pronounced rating at the seiger show when they come off the sleeve or don't engage fully with the helper.|

|Marcopolo, Since you are not a member of the United Show club of America, they certainly are not going to listen to you. Johannes has proved he has the power to control the organization. It would be great to know who you are, maybe we could rally behind you, you could be our hero. At the very least we would know what your perspective is and we would know that this is not a case of sour grapes that your German friends are feeding you as an excuse for their lack of being able to exert any influence in the show world. Are you saying Johannes Grewe owns Putz and made his own dog Siegeren? If he does not own the dog you have seriously damaged the reputation of the person who does own the dog, which warrants you to disclose your identity out of fair play. If you do not believe enough in what you are posting to stand behind your comments, don't post. Be our hero and not someone that throws bricks at cars off an overpass.|

|I'm waiting for creditable people to either come on the board and refute these things happening at the SS or if they are true to show the outrage they should for this occurring and being rewarded. Silence has no integrity!!!|

|If Marcopolo has an ounce of integrity AND knows what he is talking about AND can prove his statements, he should file BOI charges against Grewe. He must be a USCA MEMBER to file charges. If the answer to any of these criteria is no, then Marco needs to shut up and go back under his rock, until the next show where his dog loses.|

|First to Mystere, who said i am not a member of UScA ? I am indeed a member but am unwilling to be predjudiced against for doing the right thing,as SITASMOM blatantly pointed out to Tracker 1 he would be punished ! Is that what it has come to? Mystere - i have plenty of integrity do you? And yes i know exactly what i speak of and would never make such an accusation if not positive of my facts, it is not like Grewes has not done this before does anyone recall Jaro ? Also who said i even showed at Indianapolis let alone lost ? Does a person have to lose to do what is right ?|

|MARKOPOLO, then do "what is right.". File BOI charges and if your claim has merit, offending parties will be held accountable. AND, you will be celebrated for your convictions; otherwise, NOT..... Kevin|

|Not to speak for or against Grewes judging. Yet in any other sport the Judges decission stands, if one likes it or not.|
If you feel like someone has been cheated out, then go through the proper channels. What have you done so far?

|MARKOPOLO, since you named me outright I’ll make a comment.|
1. I don’t hide behind an anonymous name - Identify yourself
2. ALL the paperwork was in order when dog was entered into the Sieger Show. Entry and paper work show the German lady as the dog’s owner. That is what we have to go by at time of show.
3. I’ve heard at least 2 versions of rumors. Rumors are just that.
4. If you’re a USCA member and have proof follow Kevin’s advice, if you’re not or don’t have SOLID proof then you need to become silent.

|Marcopolo, How can you be a member of UScA when in another thread you claim to be a member of the WDA for 9 years? I guess being honest is something that doesn't come naturally to you.|
by Mystere on 22 June 2012 - 15:56
"prejudiced against"? What the hell does that mean? Does it mean that you lack the courage that you expect your dog to exhibit?
I am everlastingly amazed that people make the claim that they rear some retaliation for doing the right thing in the dog world. Exactly WHAT do you thing anyone in or out of USA can do to you, assuming you do in fact have the integrity and proof, in the event that you file BOI charges against Grewe? WHAT? Please enlighten me, as I have been pissing off the PTB (The Powers That Be ) in USCA for nearly twenty years and I am still standing. Some of "them" have fallen by the wayside, but I'm still enjoying the sport and my dogs. Nobody has done anything to me, except yak behind my back and, often, get the hell out of my way. Frankly, I'd rather be thought of as a"pronounced" bitch that can take a stand (and the heat) than a vorhundin (sp) nice guy. So, what EXACTLY ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
BTW-- I didn't say that you were or were not a member of USCA. I simply pointed out that you must be a member to file the BOI charges. Don't go into avoidance or passive-aggressive misdirection--the issue isn't my statement (that I never made) of your membership--it is whether you have the integrity to follow through, now that you've thrown eggs in public.

Thanks for the clarification, Mary.

| By the way:|
An "open letter' is normally just that: open. It is NOT done anonymously.
But, you have made your position clear. Go ahead, now, and slide back under that rock.
