Rebutting the Critics, plus a Trio of Truffle Dogs

Senior Editor Christi McDonald gives readers her take on a recent “Today Show” segment that suggested the AKC is not doing enough to “protect animals.” The recently aired report presented a biased view of the purebred dog breeder, with video footage of dogs in deplorable conditions. Find out how the best defense is a good offense when it comes to telling the truth about responsible purebred dog breeders.

An agility enthusiast in the Pacific Northwest has found an unusual way to fund her trip to the Cynosport World Games in Murfreesboro, Tenn., later this year. Kristin Rosenbach’s performance dogs have become bonafide “truffle dogs,” with a nose for finding the gourmet delicacy. Meet the Belgian Tervuren, Border Collie and Shetland Sheepdog that are paying their own way to the national agility event in the latest profile from contributing writer Deb Eldredge D.V.M.
