A few clubs are still snail-mail, sorry! But I think if we can overwhelm them with the importance of moving their shows, as well as let the town know we will not support it, well maybe we can get them to reconsider. With 40+ dog clubs there just in March, we are hitting their pockets pretty hard if we refuse to support these events. Not to mention airline and hotel loss...... I tried to make it as easy as possible for everyone to only take a few minutes to contact all the clubs, here's to ya'll that were there until 4am this morning, I appreciate your hard work. These are all the e-mail addys of clubs holding March events, the dates are listed in the forward as well as club names and e-mails again. Please note those that are followed with (n) had no e-mail, their addresses are below.

I would suggest the same if your signature implies you are with a non AKC breed. Now to move on to the other breed regisitries that hold events there. As I have said many times before, We will not go quietly into the night.......

Benjamin Franklin ----- Original Message ----- Sent: 12/21/2006 1:50:42 AM Subject: 2007 Louisville KY Events Attention Following Clubs: This is to inform you I will not be attending your events listed below, nor will I attend or support any of your events for the year 2007, unless all events are moved out of Louisville , KY. I do not feel an organization based on owners of intact animals should support any area that passes legislation requiring mandatory spay/ neuter laws. If they do not want us to own our show dogs in Louisville , then we have no reason to support their community with our patronage or finances. I hope to get your attention and immediate support of this matter. March 13, 2007 American Pomeranian Club, Inc. March 14, 2007 Staffordshire Terrier Club of America Blue Grass Boxer Club, Inc.

The laws passed here on December 20th, 2006 are a blatant attempt to take away our rights as responsible pet owners, and this is not something I, nor should your organization( s), support.
