This weekends HKC Kennel Club Show
can now compete in rally-o and obedience - so mixed breed dogs can now enter the building - the Halifax Kennel Club has been in existence for 70 years and has never allowed a mixed breed dog through it's doors - but this September for the first time, if you meet the qualifications - your mixed breed, neutered dog could come into the room to compete for obedience and walk amongst the hallowed halls of the Halifax Kennel Club - and that to me is a pardigm shift and really shows something is shifting in the purebred world.
In reality it's all a crap shoot either way - you are taking on an individual who is going to grow and change from day to day whether it's a puppy or adult so it's a lifetime committment whether you get a purebred or puppy - and I think it's fabulous that the CKC has recognized that mixed breed dogs do exist and are part of the fabric of Canadian life.
