“When it rains, it pours the old adage goes.” At this point the adage would not be referring to the drought in Ohio, but to the amount of anti breeding legislation being introduced in our country. Ohio Senate Bill 173, the puppymill bill, will have a formal hearing this coming Tuesday with bill sponsors and opposition giving testimony. This bill is an awful bill. Written to shut down the Amish puppymills, the bill will effectively stop the small reputable show breeders from breeding. Commercial breeders will really not be affected; they will get their vendors’ licenses, pay the fees to do high volume breeding, and raise their dogs like livestock under the regulations of the Ohio Department of Agriculture. While the spirit of requiring better housing and care for the puppy mill dogs, the bill lumps all breeders together who have over a certain number of breeding animals which includes brood bitches and stud dogs. If one would have a stud dog, that dog could not be bred more than once a year. So a healthy dog could effectively not be used by other breeders to improve their dogs. We presently have four dogs who have been MRI’d clear of Syringomlyelia who really could not be used as I read the bill. I am attaching the link to the bill and to the list of senators. PLEASE, THOSE OF YOU IN OHIO, AND THOSE IN OTHER STATES, CONTACT YOUR SENATOR OR ALL SENATORS NOW IN OPPOSITION TO THIS BILL. Just look on the link to the Ohio Government website to read the bill and find the list of senators. Please become involved.

And don’t forget AB 1634 in California. Thank you!

The fight against California AB1634 is ongoing. Below is a summary of what the passage would mean to reputable breeders of purebred dogs. Kim Meredith-Cavanna is a well known breeder and judge who has written the best explanation I have seen on the ramifications of the passage of AB1634. Also below the summary is a list of California Senators. Please fax your opposition to this bill. You do not have to be a resident of California to fax opposition to this bill.

Please, please donate money to the Concerned Dog Owners of California which is mentioned in the article. The website is

From Kim Meredith-Cavanna:

“You must read this bill in its entirety and its many amendments. It is vitally important that every Californian in the dog fancy read and understand this bill. If you do not live in California, you should read the bill and understand it, because its coming your way!

The general public is duped….. It appears there is an exemption when indeed there is none. There is an exemption for “breeders” until 2009 and then there are NONE. So that means after 2009, if you enter a dog show and your name and address is in the catalog, they can come to you and FINE you for $500. You will be breaking a law for owning an intact animal. Prior to 2009 you will pay a $500 (per animal) “exemption tax” to keep them “intact.” He has also recently added an amendment that you may now be “blessed” with having one litter per year. So if you are paying $1500 per year to keep three females intact, lucky you, you get to breed one of them! There are NO provisions for stud dogs, by the way. We all know that PETA and AR activists have created havoc at dog shows in the past. Just wait until this bill passes. Don’t be naive, it most likely will pass the Senate. What you need to understand is that the AR people and many of the general public see the legitimate breeders as “the bad guys”. We are evil in their eyes.

Are you going to enter your dogs in a show and have your name and address published? After 2009 you will not be owning any animal that is not spayed or neutered. It is not clear what will happen if animal control comes to your home and finds intact animals that you are not paying an “exemption tax” on….. It will be up to the local animal control offices to determine. Pretty scary thought.

PLEASE READ THIS BILL!!!! All of us need to educate ourselves. Write letters! Send faxes! Donate money to help us fight this. I am a member of COD and we have hired a full time lobbyist. CDOC is made up of “real” dog people. Exhibitors, judges, handlers, breeders. We need donations. If you can donate time, we have lots of jobs for you! Please do not think “some one else” will do it, because they will not. The threat of not having the AKC show held in Long Beach and loss of revenue is no longer an issue we can use as leverage. We have a lot of work ahead of us.”

Today AB 1634 was passed and retained which means it is tabled until later in the week because evidently Levine, the bill’s sponsor, did not have enough votes to pass it. If it is not voted on by Friday, the bill will not appear again until next session. It is interesting to note that Levine was not available today. The battle is not won yet, but the opposition is finally being heard.

Now on another note, Ch. Rattlebridge Delta Dawn went to the World Show winning Best of Breed two of the four days. Delta was co bred with my great friend, Margaret Valentine, and is co owned by another great friend, Sherri Meyer. Delta was shown by Sherri’s lovely daughter Nicole Newkirk. Way to go! Judge is Mr. Norm Patton. Ch. Rattlebridge Delta Dawn

Melissa Charbonneau, new owner of Rattlebridge True Spirit, has been visiting us since she was twelve years old to learn about Cavaliers. Melissa is now sixteen and spends many of her school vacations with us. She is vitally interested in Cavaliers and wishes to breed them when she is finished with med school, a goal she will fulfill as she is a top student. She is beginning to show “Spirit.” She has waited four years for a dog from us and her little Spirit is the perfect dog for her.

I had a great time judging in England and visiting friends. I was delighted to be able to bring home Harana Star Appeal, a young ruby girl, who really “appealed” to me. When I returned from England, I went to San Antonio to judge and then to Houston to put on a comparison seminar on English Toys and Cavaliers. Home then to celebrate my husband’s 75th birthday!!! and the arrival of my new and last horse who is a stunning two year old black Tennessee Walker. He and I are learning to adjust to each other; he is a dear, sweet horse and I look forward to wonderful rides with him. On the dog scene, my friends and I went up to the Canfield shows where we won classes and put two five point majors on our lovely black and tan girl, Rattlebridge Spring Song handled by Sunni Dunn who co owned and showed the now retired number 1 Cavalier, Ch. Rattlebridge Adagio. Spring Song, “Robin.” now needs only one point to finish her championship. Our lovely ruby boy, Ch. Rattlebridge Code Red, who is co owned with Bonnie Watts, finished his championship in June as did our tri girl, Ch. Rattlebridge Trick or Treat. Trick or Treat’s sister, Ch. Rattlebridge Costume Party has won Best of Breeds in California and a group placement, handled by her co owner Tami Doniere Byroads. We have exciting puppies coming along. Our young ruby boy, Rattlebridge Up In Lights! continues to look most promising as he grows up. We have a couple of lovely wholecolor puppies by our import Harana Spencer Tracy. Sherri Meyer now co owns and will show Rattlebridge Hit the Spot who is an absolutely delightful young blenheim girl, while Sunni Dunn is growing up Rattlebridge Shopping Spree, “Macy,” who is a young ruby girl. Rachel Stanton, who finished the championships on several of our dogs, has taken home a couple of promising black and tans as well as Rattlebridge In Wonderland, a young tricolor girl. While I stay home and take care of horses and puppies for awhile and recover from knee surgery, my friends will be out showing our dogs. We also have a couple of pet puppies who will be available in the near future. As always, we welcome visitors by appointment. Meredith

This past weekend Rattlebridge Dawn’s Early Light finished her championship with a huge five point major. She is the third Bombastic/Lola progeny to finish her championship. Shown by Julie Mullinax for her first major and finished by Jim Moses and his assistant Lenny Brown, “Spangle” is a lovely girl who will be bred in the future.

There are two organizations that need money to continue the fight against anti breeding: the Concerned Dog Owners of California (see address in Ted Crawford’s email to me below) and PetPac (the political action committee formed to protect the rights of pets and owners through public awareness and education )

From my friend and president of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Southern California:

We are in a critical time this week. If this bill does not get passed
this week it is dead. We believe he is having a hard time finding the
votes to get it passed. Some of us also feel that he would like to get
away from this bill that will likely be the end of his political career.
The overwhelming numbers of CA. residents do not want this bill (80%
oppose to 20% support). One would have to realize that the people that
vote you into office can just as easily vote you out.

As for any donations, please make checks payable to; CDOC (Concerned Dog
Owners of California) you can send to me and I will hand deliver.

Ted Crawford,
446 E. Jefferson Ave.
Pomona, CA 91767

Thank you for all your support and please know that everything we are
doing will be helpful to everyone who may face the same problem.
