There are no "secrets" in the breeding of fine dogs. Nature's laws, basic truths, are like the Ten Commandments, and bear repeating-the often the better. The receipt for success in the science of reproduction is both simple and complex but it can be summed up in a little word: SELECTION is the secret of breeding fine dogs-selection based on knowledge. A great winner is no "accident." Behind each great dog are a planned breeding program and a continuity of purpose extending over many years, by the dog's immediate breeder of a succession of breeders. Long ago people assumed that ill luck and good fortune were based upon chance. Science has narrowed the gap-if one does not depend entirely upon Lady Luck. Nature is all-powerful but science has proved that nature can be guided, and controlled; that individuals traits in a living machine can be focused, and fixed. Thinking back, I recall a poem that my parents used to quote to us children. (I am not sure I have it just right.) If, of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are, "It might have been. "Sadder are these we daily see. It is, but it ought not to be." But of all glad words of prose and rhyme, the gladdest are, "There still is time." Nothing could be more appropriate than this when we consider the little dogs which "hadn't ought to be, "but there is "still time" for breeders to take an inventory of their breeding programs, to check where they've been, how long they've been there, and the direction in which they are going.

C.C. Pyle's Amazing Foot Race

The True Story of the 1928 Coast-to-Coast Run Across America

Author: Geoff Williams

Publisher: Rodale Books


Category: Sports & Recreation

Page: 328

A riveting account of an incredible 3,423-mile foot race across America, the Great Foot Race of 1928, and C.C. Pyle, the legendary sports promoter who masterminded the event. A year before the Great Depression, endurance fads were all the rage. From dance marathons to flagpole sitting, everyone was looking for a chance to change their luck, and spectators would shell out hard-earned cash to watch. When notorious sports agent and promoter C.C. Pyle offered a $25,000 prize for a foot race from Los Angeles to New York, 199 runners from all over the world took their marks and half a million spectators flocked to the starting line. The race was grueling, but an astonishing 55 participants made it to the Madison Square Garden finish line 84 days later. C.C. Pyle's Amazing Foot Race details this historic event and the colorful cast of characters involved. At the crux of the story are two very different men: the fast-talking, shady, yet forward-thinking promoter C.C. Pyle, always scheming to make a quick buck; and Andy Payne, a 20-year-old part-Cherokee Oklahoman, who entered the competition as a longshot, against many world-class athletes, hoping to save his family's farm and win the heart of the girl of his dreams. In re-creating this classic American drama, the author accessed exclusive, never-before-published material and the support of several descendants of the characters, including Andy Payne's daughter and C.C. Pyle's great-granddaughter.

We love them with all our hearts, but do we really know where our dogs came from? Kim Kavin, author of Little Boy Blue, reveals the complex network behind the $11 billion-a-year business of selling dogs. A must-read for the benefit of all dogs, everywhere. In what promises to become an Omnivore's Dilemma for dog lovers—breed devotees and adoption advocates alike—The Dog Merchants is the first book to explain the complex and often surprisingly similar business practices that extend from the American Kennel Club to local shelters, from Westminster champions to dog auctions. Without judging dog lovers of any stripe, The Dog Merchants makes it clear that money spent among these dog merchants has real-world effects on people and canines. Kavin reveals how dog merchants create markets for dogs, often in defiance of the usual rules of supply and demand. She takes an investigative approach and meets breeders and rescuers at all levels, shedding much-needed light on an industry that most people don't even realize is an industry. Kavin’s goal is to advance the conversation about how all dogs are treated, from puppy mills to high-kill shelters. She shows that a great deal can be improved by understanding the business practices behind selling dogs of all kinds. Instead of pitting rescue and purebred people against each other, The Dog Merchants shows how all dog lovers can come together with one voice as consumers, on behalf of all our beloved companions.
