Rosettes to Ruin by Patrick Burns

this article by: Jan E Irving

. This is a really fascinating article, from a working terrier man, on how breeds have been dramatically altered in as little as 50 years. As breeders, we must remember it is our responsibility to leave the breed in a better and healthier state then when we start to meddle with it. All judges and anoyne even dreaming of recommending changes to a breed standard should swallow their egos and pride and read and take on board some of these words. = Rosettes to Ruin by Patrick Burns
