    CRCTC General Meeting

    Come join us!! Market of Choice 5639 Hood St West Linn, OR 97068 7:00 PM The meeting room is upstairs above the food service area. Arrive early to allow yourself time to eat before the meeting. Market of Choice has a variety of grab-and-go packaged dinners, deli items, weigh-and-pay hot food and salads, and made-to-order grill and kitchen items to choose from, in addition to the usual grocery store inventory. 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. Notes: 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.

  10. Pet cats can recognize their own names if their names are used regularly by their owners, according to new results. Projects to understand simple social behaviors like name recognition in cats may give clues to how we humans became social. Both humans and cats have evolved through the process of self-domestication, where the population rewards certain traits that then become increasingly common in future generations.

  14. Veterinary professionals have sounded the alarm in this week's Vet Record after treating the first UK case of a dog with the potentially fatal infection, leishmaniosis, that is thought to have been passed on by another dog, rather than by travel to an area where the infection is endemic.

  15. Pets help older adults cope with mental and physical health issues, according to a new national poll. But pets can also bring concerns, and some people may even put their animals' needs ahead of their own health, the poll finds. Three-quarters of pet owners aged 50 to 80 say their animals reduce their stress and give them a sense of purpose. But 18 percent also said having one puts a strain on their budget.

  16. Foster care provides valuable information about dog behavior that can help homeless dogs living in shelters find forever homes. Researchers found short-term fostering benefited shelter dogs in Arizona, Utah, Texas, Montana and Georgia. Stress hormone levels were reduced during one- and two-night sleepovers, and dogs also rested more during and immediately following a sleepover. View the full article
  17. Hairlessness in dogs can be the result of deliberate breeding or, in certain breeds, a defect. A recent study describes a gene variant in the SGK3 gene, which causes hairlessness in Scottish deerhounds. The gene defect results in puppies born with thin fur that lose all of their hair in a few weeks. SGK3 is also a candidate for association with non-hormonal baldness in humans. View the full article
  18. In addition to humans, hereditary disorders of enamel development occur in dogs, greatly impacting their dental health and wellbeing. A recent study reveals canine enamel disorders similar to those found in humans, linking them with ENAM and ACP4, two genes previously described in humans. View the full article
