    CRCTC Member Meeting

    Meeting starts at 7:00pm, we have the room from 6:30 - 8:00pm so come early and order your dinner! Elmers Restaurant 16087 SE 82nd Dr Clackamas, OR 97015 Phone 503-655-5656 Hope you can join us!! In an effort to make it easier for our members to listen to club meetings, we have decided to start a conference call for each meeting. Someone at the meeting will dial in and place a phone set on speakerphone in the middle of the table. Members unable to attend may dial the conference number and be connected to the call. Please don't just call someone else at the meeting, as the people on multiple phones won't be able to hear each other that way. You can join us by phone: Dial-in and disconnect times and phone numbers are recorded by the conference call provider and will be provided to the secretary to make preparation of the minutes easier Please call in on time - it is disruptive to have calls come in during the meeting. We'll try to start the call 5 minutes or so early. Expect to be prompted to identify yourself when you dial in so we know who is there. Understand that you are not technically attending the meeting - the AKC does not recognize telephone presence in meetings of regional clubs, so you don't count towards the Quorum of the meeting, and you are not able to vote. Physical presence at the meeting is always preferable. The dial-in number is (515) 604-9900 - this may be toll from your phone, it is your responsibility to check or call from a phone with unlimited long distance. The conference access code is 803639. These calls will be set up for all meetings, regular and board, for a trial period - if they work well, they will continue indefinitely.

    Oops. I wasn't there this year so didn't know. I grabbed the photo off facebook from Debbie's feed. I wonder if it was one of those "flashback" posts facebook seems fond of. If anyone has a photo from this year, looking forward to seeing it I'll delete this one then, obvs.

  7. Pet dogs are highly receptive to commands from their owners. But is this due to their training or do dogs have an innate ability to understand human signals? A new study finds that 80% of untrained stray dogs successfully followed pointing directions from people to a specific location. The results suggest that dogs can understand and respond to complex gestures without any training, meaning that dogs may have an innate connection to human behaviors. View the full article
  8. Researchers have found a very high prevalence of Bartonella bacteria in tumors and tissues - but not blood samples - taken from dogs with hemangiosarcoma, a cancer of the blood vessels. View the full article
  9. When it comes to playing a game of fetch, many dogs are naturals. But now, researchers report that the remarkable ability to interpret human social communicative cues that enables a dog to go for a ball and then bring it back also exists in wolves. View the full article
  10. Why are Irish Setters so red while other breeds can come in different hues? Geneticists now have an answer for why some dogs have more intense coat colors than others. View the full article

  14. In eastern Panama, canid species from North and South America are occurring together for the first time. Urban and agricultural development and deforestation along the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor might be generating a new passageway for these invasive species adapted to human disturbance.

  15. A team of researchers have found that dogs and wolves are equally good at cooperating with partners to obtain a reward. When tested in same-species pairs, dogs and wolves proved equally successful and efficient at solving a given problem. This finding suggests that basic cooperation abilities were present in a common ancestor of dogs and wolves, and have not been lost in the domestication process. View the full article

  18. Ever since humans domesticated the dog, the faithful, obedient and protective animal has provided its owner with companionship and emotional well-being. Now, a study suggests that being around 'man's best friend' from an early age may have a health benefit as well -- lessening the chance of developing schizophrenia as an adult. View the full article

    On your old work computer, maybe? Not that that's any help either. If you plan to take online reservations/payments etc. please let me know the details in advance of distributing flyers or publicity so the site can be updated and ready.

    To save the PDF you just click the big green Download this file button. To change it your best bet is to recreate it from scratch in Word or the application of your choice and then "print" that to PDF when/if you want to upload it in a universal format. PDFs are meant as a display/print format and are very difficult to make more than tiny changes to (a few characters on the same line, for example). I've attached a version I found on my computer from some time ago that seems related to this, although the formatting is entirely different. It is in Pages format so will only be useful to you if you use a Mac. Rally Show n Go.pages Also attached is that file converted to Word in case that's useful. I did not spend any time or effort to reformat it to address the differences of Pages vs Word. Rally Show n Go.docx
