Please let me know if any of those links doesn't work.

Part one has some stuff from PDE1, but it sets this film up pretty nicely.

Another excellent job by Jemima Harrison!

Excellent follow up, sad and expected results though.

Thanks for posting this, Jodi. Sobering. A few (very few) positive steps, but overall, sad to see so little progress being made, and some people being excoriated for espousing that people try to breed for health in companion animals. Geez.

Seems the videos have been taken down due to a copyright claim by Passionate Productions. That's too bad.

This link is currently working. It has both videos back to back. Go in about 53 minutes for the second video (Pedigree Dogs Three Years On).

Thank you!

I'm posting this on my blog, hopefully more people will see it if it gets around Tumblr and the blogging world.

From the KC web site

Bulldog and Pekingese fail Crufts vet checks
08-Mar-12

No dog representing the Pekingese and Bulldog breeds will compete in Thursday evening’s Best in Group competitions at Crufts after they failed the new veterinary checks that have been introduced to the show.

The Best of Breed award was not given to Pekingese, Palacegarden Bianca, or Bulldog, Mellowmood One In A Million, following their veterinary checks, which were carried out by an independent veterinary surgeon. This means that the dogs will not be allowed to continue into the Toy or Utility Best in Group competitions respectively.


A small start.

A lot of big changes for the better start small - here's hoping this is the start of a positive change for the dogs.

If you want to see a proper GSD at about 25m



Let's hope some of the people watching will be around on pastoral day when they can compare her with the poor specimens in the breed ring.

This is great news. A start in responsible action by the Kennel Club. I e-mailed the KC to applaud this action. We have to work to get them to change, and now it's time for a little positive reinforcement. Here is a link to the e-mail comments page on the KC website.

http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/about/contact_us.html

And kudos to Pedigree Dogs Exposed and Pedigree Dogs Exposed: 3 Years On. I think these
are the best agents for change so far.

ETA: Here is the e-mail address for Passionate Productions, home of Jemima Harrison & Pedigree Dogs Exposed and Pedigree Dogs Exposed: 3 Years On should you wish to congratulate them as well.

I wonder why they don't do health checks on all the dogs entering the best of breed competition, so that the Best Of Breed winners don't end up being unhealthy and unable to move on to Best in Group/Actually get the title? :huh:

Good, but not great.

Was it an eye injury or a breathing issue for the bulldog? I read it was an eye scar and no one mentioned anything about the smushed face.

Found this on a website called "vetstreet."

http://www.vetstreet...for-poor-health

"Veterinarians sent the Best of Breed–winning Bulldog and Pekingese packing, denying the dogs the chance to win the prestigious competition. They did so after finding that the extreme structural features of the dogs were incompatible with life as normal, healthy dogs."
