Thank you to everyone who has graciously donated trophies for our Supported Entry all 4 days at the Crown Classic. Please get your trophy donation(s) to Alyce or Diane as soon as possible. (Our November club meeting would be an excellent opportunity.) If you are donating a Natures Farmacy gift certificate, please send your check to Pegge Drysdale.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our annual all breed health clinic on Sept 24, 2016.
We did 72 eye exams, 23 cardiac echo doppler exams, and 26 cardiac auscultations plus 2 microchps!
The heart clinic was filled two weeks prior to the clinic and Dr. Boddy did exams from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm.
A special thank you to the Dr. Foss, Dr. Boddy and Vet Tech Teresa Holmes as well as the members who helped out the day of the clinic!
A special thank you to those who came to support our charity auction - we raised $1,400 in our auction alone! Those monies were to support Lake Erie Labrador Retriever Rescue and the Medina County Sheriff K-9 Fund.
The lineage of all dilutes has been traced back to two Kellogg's dogs (a kennel with Labradors and Weimaraners) by Mayo Kellogg who "invented" the "pointing Labrador". Please click here to read documentation.
LELRC fully supports our AKC parent club, The Labrador Retriever Club (LRC), in their stand against the dilution of our breed (aka silvers, charcoals, and champagnes). Please click here to see Dr. Fran Smith's article.
LELRC fully supports the LRC's stand against the showing of dilutes in the conformation ring since conformation means conforming to a standard which our breed standard specifically states that the only permissible colors are black, yellow, and chocolate. The conformation ring is for breeding animals for which no dogs with the dilution gene (either a carrier or affected) should be breed. Recently, the LRC wrote a letter to the AKC in regards to this matter. Please click here to see the letter.
