    CRCTC Member Annual Meeting

    Because of the Covid 19 virus we will do both a telephone and video chat meeting for updating the board on specialty, etc.. Choose which ever you are comfortable with. See below for instructions. VIDEO ACCESS to the same meeting room: If you would like to participate via video, please: 1: go to https://www.freeconferencecall.com 2: click 'join meeting' 3: use online meeting id 'tquarles9' You will have to have click on the camera icon to activate your camera. DIAL IN: 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. Expect to be prompted to identify yourself when you dial in so we know who is there. 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 During the call, we will be being more respectful of those who wish to speak. I'll continue to encourage everyone to participate, but rather than a 'free for all', I'll ask that when you wish to speak, you simply state your name, and I'll call on you to speak - please end your statement with something to indicate you're done, and I'll call on the next person - this way, people with loud phone voices won't dominate the conversation. 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.

  6. While water blasting at a wall of frozen mud in Yukon, Canada, a gold miner made an extraordinary discovery: a perfectly preserved wolf pup that had been locked in permafrost for 57,000 years. The remarkable condition of the pup, named Zhùr by the local Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in people, gave researchers a wealth of insights about her age, lifestyle, and relationship to modern wolves.

  7. In urban environments, allergic diseases are more common among dogs and their owners compared to those living in rural areas. Simultaneous allergic traits appear to be associated with the microbes found in the environment, but microbes relevant to health differ between dogs and humans. View the full article
  8. A new canine sleep study could serve as a baseline for research on chronic pain and cognitive dysfunction in dogs, potentially improving detection and treatment of these conditions. View the full article
  9. Animals that have never been domesticated, such as kangaroos, can intentionally communicate with humans, challenging the notion that this behavior is usually restricted to domesticated animals like dogs, horses or goats, a new study has found. View the full article
  10. After aversive training, dogs had a lower behavioral state (higher stress and anxiety), a new study has found. If aversive methods were used in high proportions, that persisted even in other contexts. View the full article

  12. An analysis of ten different species finds that humans -- followed by ferrets and, to a lesser extent cats, civets and dogs -- are the most susceptible animals to SARS-CoV-2 infection. View the full article

    Fran: Made contribution of $100 in Sharon’s name to Oregon Food Bank. She got a very nice thank you letter mentioning Sharon. Vicky M: Pub and Vicky took a break from nose work for about a year. Needed 1 more leg for buried advanced. Entered Halloween weekend and got 1st place and his title!! Moving him up to buried Excellent and he qualified with 3rd place, Vicky is the one that got lost. Entered in Advanced exterior and got a first place so only 2 more legs needed. Liz Sterry: Her little Donut, almost 18 months old, got his ACT 1 Title this last weekend. 24 seconds on first run!! Hallie: Lost Eleanor about 2 weeks ago. So sad. Johnny has claimed the sofa, Hallie, and the baby for himself. Debbie: Retiring in 30 days!!
  15. Trained dogs are better at detecting explosives and narcotics than any technological device scientists have invented. However, training dogs to detect hazardous substances can be inconvenient for the trainer and dangerous for the dog. Scientists are working to solve this problem with a material that can catch odors and safely release them over time. View the full article
  16. What makes the elderly and people with underlying conditions more vulnerable to COVID-19? According to a new study, clues can be found in the proteins involved in initiating infection, as the virus binds to host cells of different animals. Greater cellular oxidation with aging and sickness may explain why seniors and people with chronic illness get infected more often and more severely. View the full article
  17. A new study points to the lifesaving role that pets have played in 2020 and why governments need to sit up and take notice. View the full article
  18. The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) celebrates overwhelming support for its Hemangiosarcoma Research Initiative with donations matched by the American German Shepherd Dog Charitable Foundation (AGSDCF). View the full article
  19. Canine distemper virus (CDV) causes a serious disease in domestic dogs, and also infects other carnivores, including threatened species like the Amur tiger. It is often assumed that domestic dogs are the primary source of CDV, but a new study found that other local wildlife was the primary source of CDV transmission to tigers instead.

  20. Food allergies cost billions of dollars and cause enormous suffering for people. Researchers are trying to remove the source of food allergies altogether -- troublesome proteins made by our favorite crops. View the full article
  21. Researchers have found widespread contamination of English rivers with two neurotoxic pesticides commonly used in veterinary flea products: fipronil and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid. View the full article
  22. Differences in skin gene expression were observed between healthy and atopic Staffordshire Bull Terriers as well as between dogs that ate either dry food or raw food. Raw food appeared to activate the skin's immune system as well as the expression of genes that increase antioxidant production or have anti-inflammatory effects. View the full article
  23. The AKC Canine Health Foundation awards three Clinician-Scientist Fellowships for 2021 to encourage and support the next generation of canine health researchers. View the full article
  24. Three new articles present major advances in understanding the evolution of birds and mammals, made possible by new methods for comparing the genomes of hundreds of species. Researchers developed a powerful new genome alignment method that has made the new studies possible, including the largest genome alignment ever achieved of more than 600 vertebrate genomes.

  25. The Scandinavian wolf originally came from Finland and Russia, and unlike many other European wolf populations its genetic constitution is virtually free from dog admixture. In addition, individuals have migrated into and out of Scandinavia. These findings have emerged from new research in which genetic material from more than 200 wolves was analyzed.

  26. Researchers have identified a new species of Rickettsia bacteria that may cause significant disease in dogs and humans. This new yet unnamed species, initially identified in three dogs, is part of the spotted-fever group Rickettsia which includes Rickettsia rickettsii, the bacteria that cause Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF).
