" What Is A Title Really?"

Not just a brag, not just a stepping stone to a higher Title, not just

an adjunct to competitive scores.

A Title is a tribute to the dog that bears it, a way to honor the

dog, an ultimate memorial. It will remain in the record and in the

memory for about as long as anything in this world can remain. Few

humans will do as well or better in that regard. And though the dog

himself doesn't know or care that his achievements have been

noted, a Title says many things in the world of humans, where such things


A Title says your dog was intelligent, and adaptable, and

kind, the best you can give to a deserving friend, volumes of praise

in one small set of initials before or after the name.

A Title is nothing less than love and respect, given and received
