At Last! The RSPCA have taken a stand, slapped the Kennel Club, and withdrawn from Crufts. Following the BBC programme broadcast last month that highlighted the appalling genetic defects being inflicted on pedigree dogs by Kennel Club breed standards and morally corrupt breeders, the RSPCA has acted and managed to catch the attention of today's press, a leading article in The Times and a double page spread (p16-17).
The sponsors, Pedigree Petfoods being the biggest, are also now scrabbling to distance themselves from this 'prestigious' dog show.
So come on The Dogs Trust, your turn to prod the self-satisfied, incompetent buffoons that preside over the Kennel Club; call for their sacking and replacement with people that truly care about canine welfare, have the medical knowledge to influence healthy breed standards and put a halt to the kind of breeding practices that have brought about this miserable situation.
