I know there has been a lot of dialogue on the members list recently regarding a breed split. We don’t have 100 percent of our membership on the members list, so I thought I would explain the process which the Board has agreed to take. First, we will survey the membership to see if there is enough interest in splitting the breed. It makes no sense to continue down a path if it doesn’t have enough member support. Secondly, if there is enough support, we will post the rationale raised by both sides in the ACA Update, so all have access to the information and can come to their own decision. Once both sides have an opportunity to plead their case, we will send out a second survey to see where the membership stands after reading both points of view. This also allows us to gather all the information necessary to determine the steps required by AKC. Read More
