Higher Standards Being Enforced For Show Dogs

This is REALLY good news. The British Crufts Kennel Club has created a new rule that a dog can't be a show champion unless it passes a health test by a veterinarian. Thus, dogs that have been bred with pretty, but disfiguring, breed traits are being disqualified from the shows. I only hope this trend comes here to the the American Kennel Club. It's time we stopped pretending that weird looking dogs, dogs with other hidden genetic dysfunctions, and so forth are healthy... they aren't.
