We expect to have at least three new members in the very near future when some bitch puppies on order from England arrive. Another future member scheduled for autumn arrival in the States is Mrs. Eeva-Lllsa Brotherus from Finland. She is the owner of Finnish-bred Bearcats Belladonna (ex Bandits Belle-lettres by Towans Lord John).
All Canadian members are urged to send copies of the pedigrees of their stock to SBTC/USA Secretary Steve Stone (1125 N. Mar Vista, Pasadena, Calif. 91104) who will register the animals with the club and then return the pedigrees along with Official SBTC/USA/USA Pedigrees at no charge.
A Club letter requesting official separate recognition of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier by the AKC has been sent to Mr. Dick, Executive Vice-President of the AKC. Members will be informed of the results of this correspondence as soon as possible.
The Breed Standard is to be found in John F. Gordon's books, "The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Handbook,' and "Staffordshire Bull Terriers." These publications are usually available at the larger bookstores and at dog shows here in the USA. If members encounter difficulty obtaining either, they may contact the Secretary who may be able to help them. The SBTC/USA Breed Standard, naturally, is identical to the English Standard. However, it has been suggested that for the benefit of new owners in the USA an additional paragraph be appended thusly: "No exhibit whelped after January 1, 1967, shall be cropped, docked, de-whiskered, trimmed, or altered in any way except that the long hair on the underside of the tail may be trimmed." Members' opinions on this paragraph are solicited.
