Sounds like twice the amount of work necessary, but I understand how politics makes things sometimes
Hope one of the clubs is successful! There are some gorgeous lavenders out there.
Well, both clubs will need to have 5 signed affidavits from breeders who have had self-blue and have been APA members for at least 5 years. Those names could be the same people, but I doubt they are.
Yes, it is rather silly, really. We were waiting to see what the Alliance was going to do, so as not to barge in on their parade (to paraphrase). ;) But there are just too many people that will be negatively impacted by waiting for the Alliance to get "lavender" approved, which the APA has made very clear is not likely, and they have clearly stated that they will not back down on the name.
It's beyond my comprehension, really. Seems to me it doesn't matter what the APA calls them, we can still refer to them as Lavenders. We just have to make sure to mark the right box when we're sending in entries. But, I guess the label is important to some folks.
She said and The Frog? That must be a nursery rhyme I missed. LOL
Ahhh...thought I heard the strain of banjos in the background.
Oh my...I think I'll have a voice box operation so I don't sound like the banshee. Sounding like a frog doesn't sound too bad, by comparison. lol
