Music intro: CD Track #3 - Amanda
INTRO:           DOG FANCIERS OUTSIDE THE UK WILL ONCE AGAIN HAVE TO WATCH ENGLAND’S MAJOR SHOW CRUFTS ONLINE THIS MARCH 10TH TO 13TH. 2009 WAS THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR DECADES THAT THE BBC FAILED TO TELEVISE THE SHOW FOLLOWING OUTRAGE GENERATED BY THE DOCUMENTARY “PEDIGREE DOGS EXPOSED.”
THE FILM CLAIMED THAT GENERATIONS OF INBREEDING AND BREEDING quote DEFORMED AND DISABLED quote DOGS HAVE LEFT MANY BREEDS SEVERELY UNHEALTHY, UNNATURAL, AND DISEASE-PRONE. AFTER THE KENNEL CLUB’S REFUSAL TO ELIMINATE 14 quote AT-RISK quote BREEDS FROM THE COMPETITION, SUPPORT FOR THE SHOW WAS SUSPENDED BY THE BBC, ROYAL SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS, SPONSOR PEDIGREE DOG FOODS, AND EVEN THE QUEEN.
MANY DOG LOVERS ARE DISAPPOINTED BY THE BBC’S DECISIONS, INCLUDING BRITTANY OWNER BRIDGET CAVANAUGH.
                        [Bridget] (CD Track #1; TRT=:11)
Incue: "I don't know how you know..."
Outcue: "...interests of the dogs at heart."
(Verbatim: "I don't know how you know that that's not being skewed, and I tend to think that breeders and owners wouldn't want to hurt their dogs just to win these competitions. I mean, you assume that they have the best interests of the dogs at heart.")
THE KENNEL CLUB MAINTAINS THAT THE DOGS’ WELFARE IS THEIR PRIMARY CONCERN AND HAS BEEN REVISING POLICIES AND BREED STANDARDS AND FUNDING GENETIC TESTS. HOWEVER, THEY HAVEN’T YET GONE FAR ENOUGH TO SATISFY THE BBC AND RSPCA. ON THE FLIP SIDE, SOME FEEL THEY’RE TAKING THINGS TOO FAR. MANY BREEDERS AND OWNERS ARE OFFENDED BY THE SLEW OF NEW RULES AND REGULATIONS. THEY SEEM THEM AS DANGEROUS PRECEDENTS AND MEDDLESOME ATTEMPTS TO, AS ONE BLOODHOUND OWNER PUT IT, quote CHANGE OUR BREED quote.
BUT OTHERS SUCH AS JOE MULLALY THINK THAT DROPPING SUPPORT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO UNTIL SOME DOG PEOPLE REEVALUATE THEIR PRIORITIES.
[Joe] (CD Track #2; TRT=:08)
Incue: "They've got to make improvements..."
Outcue: "Otherwise, it contradicts itself."
(Verbatim: "They've got to make improvements...eventually, they'll get rid of the bad apples, and put the show back on the air...but until they clean it up, they should, yeah. Otherwise, it contradicts itself."
OUTRO:           EVENT COVERAGE WILL AGAIN AIR ON THE UK’S DIGITAL CHANNEL MORE4 AND STREAM ONLINE AT WWW.DFSCRUFTS.TV [W W W DOT DFS CRUFTS DOT TV.]
