Johnny, has officially started his career as a performance dog. On his first day of class he demonstrated most of the commands that will be taught during the 6 week Companion Dog class.

    CRCTC Membership Meeting

    Because the first Tuesday falls on New Years Day our Meeting in January 2019 will be on the second Tuesday, January 8, 2019 @ 7pm 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.
  12. Research into one of the 'genetic orchestra conductors', microRNAs, sheds light on our selectively guided evolution of domestic pets and farmyard animals such as dogs and cows. View the full article
  13. Researchers have shown that dogs possess some 'metacognitive' abilities -- specifically, they are aware of when they do not have enough information to solve a problem and will actively seek more information. The researchers created a test in which dogs had to find a reward behind one of two fences. They found that the dogs looked for additional information significantly more often when they had not seen where the reward was hidden. View the full article
  14. Every day, thousands of trained K9 dogs sniff out narcotics, explosives and missing people. These dogs are invaluable for security, but they're also expensive. Researchers have made the beginning steps toward an artificial 'robot nose' device that officers could use instead of dogs. The heart of the system would be living odor receptors grown from mouse genes that respond to target odors, including the smells of cocaine and explosives. View the full article
  15. Biologist have compared the genes of large-beaked Cameroonian finches to those of their smaller-beaked counterparts, found the answer to a 20-year old mystery: 300,000 base pairs, apparently inherited as a unit, always varied between them, and right in the middle of that genetic sequence was the well-known growth factor, IGF-1.

    I got my first Cairn, a rescue, in 1993. It is at this time I fell in love with this breed. I acquired my first show puppy in 2002. Since then, I have finished several AKC champions and have occasional litters of puppies. I am very involved with Cairn health, and do all possible health testing on the dam and sire. Every now and again, I have a retired champion for whom I will find a forever, loving home.
