MPBA has been many places again this summer. I want to thank all the members that volunteered to help at each event. We are now gearing up for the FFA Speaking Contest that starts in November. We will pick the six FFA contestants for our Conference in March. In the last edition of our Magazine, we hope to have to the speaking list and time line. We

On April 11, 2019, I had a car wreck that totalled my Dodge Caravan – I blacked out. I
have been very tired and had no energy this spring. In August, I suffered a stroke, throwing a clot in my right hand. In the hospital, I suffered another more severe stroke. They were able to dissolve the clot found in my brain, but I spent 10 1/2 days in the hospital. Health care in the U.S. today SUCKS. From personal experience, I found a lack of care for any length of time and students working in the hospital, seeing patients who should have had access to an experienced doctor. They diagnosed me with AFib and said they could only diagnose it if you were having an incident. I guess you have to have a stroke before they can find it. I am taking lots of medicine and recovery is slow. Thanks to everyone that visited and helped keep my kennel going. The prayers worked and my doctor said I was lucky... I had recovered more than he thought I would. Hopefully you will understand why the magazine is late. Please send articles and chapter news so we can get the last quarter magazine out on time. In this magazine, you will see a note from Becky Winslow with Tandem Products, Inc. It really lifted my spirits. Now, tour with us through the magazine all the many places MPBA has been this summer.

It is very important for dogs being boarded, groomed or going to dog parks to be vaccinated for Kennel Cough on a regular basis. Kennel Cough is a respiratory disease caused by a bacteria and possibly some viruses. It is spread by aerosol when dogs are in close contact, so it is inevitably a problem in kennels. Intravasal Vaccine The other type of Kennel Cough vaccine is called an intranasal vaccine. It is dripped or squirted into the nose. While this might seem like an odd way to give a vaccine, it is actually very elective. Dogs get Kennel Cough by breathing in the bacteria/virus. This vaccine causes the production of antibodies in the respiratory tract, where they can be ready to attack the germs before they enter the body. Which is Better? Both vaccines work. The intranasal works quicker, and you don’t have to stick a needle into your dog. It makes sense to attack the bacteria where it enters the body. It is also beneficial to use the injectable if there is enough time before boarding, and especially for those dogs that would rather bite your fingers off than get vaccinated. Whichever vaccine you choose, be very careful to fully read the instructions provided with it. An injectable vaccine will not work if squirted up the nose, and an intranasal vaccine may cause an abscess if injected! The bottom line is, no matter what vaccine you prefer to use, make sure your dog is protected against Kennel Cough on a regular basis. Kennel Cough Vaccine – Injectable or Intranasal? It is very important for dogs being boarded, groomed or going to dog parks to be vaccinated for Kennel Cough on a regular basis. Kennel Cough is a respiratory disease caused by a bacteria and possibly some viruses. It is spread by aerosol when dogs are in close contact, so it is inevitably a problem in kennels. It is not usually a life-threatening disease, but it can cause a very irritating, loud, hacking cough. Kennel Couch can rarely lead to a much more serious pneumonia. There are two types of Kennel Cough vaccines: injectable and intranasal. Both provide protection against Kennel Cough, but they work in di!erent ways. How to Keep Your Dog Cool in the Summer Keeping your dog cool in the summer is crucial for his health and safety. The heat a!ects animals in di!erent ways. Some lean br eds have little problems with the extra warmth if allowed to get out of the sun. However, elderly and very young animals have a harder time regulating their body temperatures. A young puppy's world is a toy, and they get up in the morning thinking of playing. Puppies under one year can get so excited with attention that you need to force them to "cool o!" between play times. It is not usually a life-threatening disease, but it can cause a very irritating, loud, hacking cough. Kennel Couch can rarely lead to a much more serious pneumonia. There are two types of Kennel Cough vaccines: injectable and intranasal. Both provide protection against Kennel Cough, but they work in different ways. Injectable Vaccine The injectable vaccine is given under the skin with a needle and syringe. This causes an immune response and the production of antibodies, which circulate in the blood and are ready to attack if an infection occurs. Some breeds require extra caution in the summ r months. Examples are the "pushed-in" nose dogs (Brachycephalic), such as Pugs, or breeds that can't pant !ectiv ly in the heat. Overweight do s and dogs with extra skin, like SharPeis, require additi nal vigilance in hot weather. Beating the Heat Beating the heat is not easy for your pet. Unlike humans, dogs do not sweat. They get rid of the heat through their mouth and lips by basically "sweating through their mouth" when they pant. They also release heat through their pads, so taking them to the county fair or outside market when temperatures are on the rise is asking for issues. Here are a few tips to help avoid overheating in your dog. Injectable Vaccine The injectable vaccine is given under the skin with a needle and syringe. This causes an immune response and the production of antibodies, which circulate in the blood and are ready to attack if an infection occurs.

Save a Breed If you need help, call us at 800.786.4751. - Richard Edling, DVM, MBA Cool grass will remove heat from a dog, but concrete or gravel will add to the issue. When temps are high, leave your pet at home where they can get out of the sun! Feed animals in the evening when temperatures drop. If they are twice-a-day feeders, feed ¼ of the diet in the a.m. and ¾ of the diet in the p.m. Low fat/protein diets are not only good for the waste, but they also create less heat in digestion than high fat, high protein diets do. Make popsicles to control the heat. Use Re-Sorb ® electrolytes in one gallon of water and add 1 tsp. of beef/chicken bouillon. Freeze in ice cube trays and give to your pets as treats. Feed them outside if your pet is not used to ice cubes, or they will make a mess trying to $gure out the "eating technique" the $rst time. Dogs get rid of heat through their mouths so this works great. Freeze large dog popsicles in Dixie cups. Cheap and e!ective cooling! For outside dogs, heat is di%cult to deal with. Mix one pack of Re-Sorb® electrolytes in one gallon of the water to make "Puppy Gatorade." When the temperatures approach high 90's, use in place of drinking water. For a change of pace for puppies and kittens, freeze Foster Care ™ Milk Replacer in a Dixie cup for a cooling, plus nutritious treat. If you need help, call us at 800.786.4751.

Why Do I Want A Purebred Dog? By AKC Staff May 01, 2015
“My Favorite Breed is Purebreds.“ Because parents have been carefully selected for health–gone through a series of genetic tests to ensure that the dog has the best possible chance of being healthy and well-adjusted. When looking for a puppy, I get to work with a breeder, who loves the puppies like they’re her own children and is available to answer all of my questions, give advice, or just happily accept a flood of photos of my puppy growing up. I get a healthy puppy and a friend for life. I build a personal relationship with the breeder, which helps in matching an individual puppy’s temperament perfectly with my lifestyle. The breeder can also predict my dog’s size, care requirements, temperament and more from 100-plus years of traceable pedigrees. During training my dog, I’ll have the advantage that the process has already been started for me. My puppy has been handled from the start, and has already begun to be socialized, which greatly affects how well-adjusted the puppy will be as an adult. My puppy will have top-notch, expert care from day one. Perfect nutrition, the best medical attention, and ample, supervised playtime – all the ingredients for a happy, healthy, adult dog.
If something should happen to me, my family won’t have to scramble to find a caretaker for my dog because the loving breeder promised in writing to take the puppy back from the start. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing a dog’s natural instincts that have been carefully, expertly bred into him come to life. For example: Watching a pointing breed aiming his muzzle at a bird even though he’s never hunted a day in his life, or watching a Border Collie herd ducks in the yard. It’s so satisfying to cultivate those instincts into earning medals and titles for my dog in fun activities. This will build an unbreakable bond with my dog as we work together as a team. With a new puppy comes a whole community of people who love their breed and their breeders. They offer advice and invite us to play sessions. I take time to research a breed that fits my lifestyle and personality perfectly. I’ll be practically guaranteeing that the bond with my dog will be like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. I’ll have a friend who will never judge me and who will share my happiness and tears for years to come. One who will break my heart when passing, because my friend has been in my life since he was a baby. And even so, I would do it again. That is why I’m buying a purebred dog.
“Kudos on the great 2nd quarter edition of MPBA! Ann, The MPBA edition is the best I have seen and I have read them all. Great job! Please pass this on to all that worked on the magazine.” ~Emailed note from Becki Winslow with Tandem Products Inc.
Travel down a twisty little blacktop road in northeastern Missouri and you will find a little white house nestled among the cows and bee hives. Step inside and you will be greeted by Clayton and Louise Armstrong, a kindly couple who have created their own brand of fresh air. Solar Aire, air purified like the sun, wind and rain creates. Solar Aire Purifies for a cleaner, healthier life
Clayton and Louise owned and operated an electrical business and the oldest Frigidaire dealership west of the Mississippi River before retiring in 2003. Now retirement to them meant, getting to work on all kinds of other projects. The Solar Aire Purifier project was born from a need of a gentleman who owned a kennel and was losing pups due to kennel cough. He knew Clayton had a creative mind and the skills to build from, so he turned to him for help. After visiting with other kennel owners who were
experiencing the same problems, kennel cough, sore eyes and the strong odors, they saw there was a
great need for a unit that would create a healthier atmosphere for the dogs and their owners. Something was needed to create fresh, clean, healthy air while being long lasting, easy to use and dependable in harsh environments. So the research and ideas began. Clayton uses an enclosed metal container with germicide bulbs, the type used in hospitals to aid in killing germs and a strong, easily removable and washable filter, keeping everything contained and low maintenance. There are currently three sizes of units available; the convertible model which operates on regular 120V house current, or can be used in a vehicle with an inverter for pet transportation; the residential model which is highly used in small dog kennels and homes; and the commercial unit which offers the user dual settings, and can cleanse the air in a 2500 square foot building nicely, depending on circulation. Units have optional timers available and the bulbs are safe, creating what is known as cold ozone. The Solar Aire purifier has evolved over the past 16 years and is a continuous work in progress. Clayton and Louise attend numerous conventions and conferences across the Midwest displaying and selling their Solar Aire Purifiers. Many veterinarians recommend their units due to the sturdiness, simplicity, low maintenance and the overall improved health of the animals. They enjoy the opportunity to meet new people, see old friends and bring a better environment into the lives of people and their pets. Currently they have units in 40 states and Canada. Solar Aire Purifiers, a better way to clean your indoor air. If you would like more information you may contact them at 660.651.5934 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

WOOF FOR VETS
From: Scott Message Body:
was quite a drive up there, but was worth it. We saw so many nice folks. We got to see the 4-H QUEENS. Beautiful young ladies, and I took their picture. We had a great time kidding around. We had some folks sign up to be members, and some for Woof for Vets. I got to take a break and went through the 4-H building. I was IMPRESSED with those kiddos! The things they made and the cake decorating was something else. Back at the booth, we got a lot of laughs and had just too much fun. – Peggy Woof for Vets / Missouri Pet Breeders Association Sue, Beverly, Emmet and Kathleen were present to greet hundreds of veterans for the 10th annual Military Appreciation Day on Sunday at the State Fair in west- central Missouri’s Sedalia. Veterans, family members, friends, Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe, National Guard Adjutant General Levon Cumpton and several patriot guard motorcycle riders showed up. We had a lot of fun visiting with veterans and their families. We look forward to seeing many of the veterans again next year.
Thank you, Woof for Vets, so much. I gave you all a very hard task of finding a specific dog that I felt was just right for me and my family. Even though it was time consuming and took several months (certainly not from a lack of trying, I know they worked very hard), you never gave up, and found the perfect dog for me. Beverly and Sue walked me through every step and made the process so easy. These ladies checked on us several times after getting Nawla to see how we were doing and if there was anything that we needed. Pam, the dog trainer, is the best trainer I have seen. She had us training Nawla on our trip back from getting her. She had me training her things over the phone that I had never been able to train any other dog. I thank God for all of you. You are true blessings. Another Message: She has arrived and my, do I love her... I was wondering about a low cost spay? Also, I would like to thank you and everyone involved with Woof for Vets. I have not smiled like this in a long time, and I think she was what I needed. Thank you once again. Warmest Regards, Jeremiah To Corey - You did more than give Jeremiah the gift of a dog, you gave him the gift of life. Well Done, Corey, you are my hero! Beverly Girl Scouts Honor Veterans and their Dogs OZARK, MO LOWES - Fifteen Girl Scouts and their Leader honored the veterans and their dogs with a surprise visit during an Obedience Class. They presented Pamela, trainer, and veterans with 35 bags of homemade treats and 35 scarves for their dogs. During their stay, they observed seven training demonstrations, useful techniques, and asked questions, such as when to reward their dog’s good behavior. Sedalia Fair 2019 Ok, here goes.

Standing for Those Who Stood for Us Sponsored by Woof for Vets
It is our honor to stand in respect for the families of those active military, veterans, and first responders who stood for us, and for our country. The first state wide motorcycle run to the new Missouri National Veterans Memorial began at 8:00 am, September 21, 2019. 690 motorcycles left from Springfield. Woof for Vets’ Sue and Beverly arrived at dark 0’ thirty, parked the van, and hit the ground running. We quickly pulled everything out of the back of the van, set up the table with coffee pots under the tailgate with an attached heat lamp, and started making strong coffee. It worked well! We passed out Krispy Kreme Donuts and Sue took pictures until her cell phone storage was full. Good job Sue! During the morning, the veterans gathered for an all hands Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, safety meeting, instructions, gas stop locations, and prayer. Shortly afterwards, the Police Escort rolled out onto Sunshine to lead the way, followed by lots of veteran motorcycle riders and a chartered bus all leaving Springfield and bound for the Missouri National Veterans Memorial Vietnam Wall in Perryville, MO. Hundreds of bikers and mortorcades came across country to meet up and joined the mortorcade at Cabool and Van Buren. This was the first Missouri Vietnam Wall Run and designated to be an annual event on the third Saturday in September, the day after National POW/ MIA Recognition Day. PERRYVILLE, MO - Upon arrival the motorcade gather for a wall viewing and a POW/MIA ceremony. This was followed by a Vietnam Veteran Tribute Cermony, held on the town square. Governor Mike Parson was present and spoke. “ All those names on that wall, that’s why we are here. If we ever let that wall’s memories be faded, then our country fades. We’re not who we are as Americans, and that’s why it’s important,” said Parson. The Missouri National Veterans Memorial Vietnam Wall is an exact replica of the one in Washington, D.C., made from black granite taken from the same quarry in India. It bears more than 58,000 names of casualties in the Vietnam War. 1,400 of those named were from Missouri, and 35 are still missing. The ride was organized by the Veterans in Defense of Liberty and the Liberty Riders of America.

Missouri State Fair Accepting Nominations for Veteran/Active Military Honorees of the Day
To honor our service men and women, the Missouri State Fair is teaming up with Capital Materials, Retrieving Freedom, Inc. & Starline Brass to present a new event called the Military Flag Ceremony. Veterans and active service members from across Missouri are eligible to be honored one of the eleven days during the Missouri State Fair in a ceremony taking place at the flag pole on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. To be selected, individuals must be nominated using the form available on the Missouri State Fair website. Nominees must be Missouri residents and available one of the eleven days of the 117thMissouri State Fair. Once a nomination is completed, it can be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the Missouri State Fair office. The deadline to submit nominations is in July 2020. Military Appreciation Day 2019 at the Missouri State Fair Missouri World War II Army veteran honored at annual military event: Among those recognized at the event was a 98-year- old World War II veteran from Jefferson City. Charles Foster served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945 to honor his best friend, Charles Thompson. “Then he was killed at Pearl Harbor,” says Foster. “Immediately I wanted to enlist.” Foster served in a variety of Army jobs, including as a B25 bomber crew chief and on the front lines. Foster exited his fox hole once. He says that was a big mistake. “When a piece of shrapnel hit my helmet, I thought it was going to break my neck. It didn’t get me – it just got my helmet. I didn’t have any trouble staying in the fox hole after that,” Foster laughs.
Foster has war wounds, including shrapnel in his skull and he’s worn hearing aids ever since. He was awarded three bronze star medals for his courage. Foster stumbled into his final military position after some of his comrades were passed out in the kitchen from drinking too much alcohol. None of the kitchen crew was coherent enough to feed a bunch of hungry soldiers. Foster rolled up his sleeves and got to work whipping up a meal that ended up being the talk of the base, particularly his peach cobbler. Despite his initial objection, Foster ended up leading the kitchen crew and becoming a mess hall sergeant until he finished his military service in 1945. History of The Pledge of Allegiance The Pledge of Allegiance of the United States is an expression of allegiance to the flag of the United States and the republic of the United States of America. It was originally composed by Captain George Thatcher Balch, a Union Army Officer during the Civil War and later a teacher of patriotism in New York City schools. The form of the pledge used today was largely devised by Francis Bellamy in 1892, and formally adopted by Congress as the pledge in 1942. The official name of The Pledge of Allegiance was adopted in 1945. The most recent alteration of its wording came on Flag Day in 1954, when the words “under God” were added. -Wikipedia August 12, 2019 By Alisa Nelson

TRI-COUNTY PET BREEDERS CHAPTER Tri-County
Pet Breeders, Ozark Country Kennel Club and Toto Kennel Club put together an OFA health clinic on September 10, 2019. We all worked hard to get everything ready for the big day. We had a total of 104 dogs tested that day for hips, elbows, leg-calve-perthes, heart, patella and detention. We were very lucky to get a canine ophthalmologist to test for genetic eye disease. We had 97 dogs that had their eyes dilated and tested. We want to thank Dr. Sinn for taking hundreds of x-rays. Dale from AKC to help handle the dogs during the x-rays (by the way, Dale MUST be a dog whisperer) and Stacey Mason fromAKC for all the planning and paperwork assistance. A big Kudos to Stacey. With the help from AKC, we are able to choose only the physically correct and sound animals for our breeding programs. Another big thanks to Kim, Kathleen, Elizabeth, MaryAnn, Sheila and Andrea for orchestrating the

whole project. All three clubs worked together flawlessly to make it a GREAT day. I am proud to say, that I have OFA
The Xolointzcuintli (pronounced “show-low-eats- QUEENT-lee”), most commonly referred to as a Xolo (pronounced show-low), is a dog that originated with and was named by the Aztecs. The Xolo is the national treasure of Mexico for their healing powers. The Xolo has been noted as far back as 3,000 years ago. The Xolo comes in three sizes and two different coat types. The Xolo can be coated or non-coated by breed standard. The three sizes are toy (height at withers at least 10, and up to and including 14 inches), mini (height at withers over 14 inches, and up to and including 18 inches), and standard (height at withers over 18 inches, and up to and including 23 inches). Dogs less than 10 inches or over 24 inches are disqualified.) I accidentally came to love this breed. I show and raise standard and toy poodles. My Poodle mentor, Missy Smith, with Kissme Standard poodles has a Xolo named MJ ( CH. Amatyl Tochtli). When I first met him, it was love at first sight. MJ was friendly, outgoing, and just plain fun to be around. He was also incredibly smart and mischievous. Missy told me all about the breed and everything she knew about the history behind them,
and that was all it took to get me hooked. A few months after meeting MJ for the first time me and Missy took him to a dog show where he won a Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show and Best of the Best. After that first show I decided with the help of Missy Smith to dive deeper into Xolos. I now co-own three Xolos with Missy. The breed is fairly new to AKC and only adopted in 2011. There are not many breeders here in the States. I have been blessed to be a part of this breed. It was truly a life changing moment seeing this hairless dog at poodle breeder’s house and falling in love. Xolos are amazing watch and companion dogs. Nothing goes on around the house that a Xolo does not know about. If you want to know more about the breed, feel free to follow Missy Smith on Facebook at Kissme Standard Poodles or myself at Vienna Poodle. We will be creating a Facebook soon dedicated to the wonderful hairless dogs called Xolos that we share our homes with. Justin Slack

Missouri Agriculture Donates $175,000 to Combat Childhood Hunger
JEFFERSON CITY, MO – For the third year in a row, agriculture groups in Missouri partnered to raise awareness of childhood food insecurity and raise support for food banks across the state through the Missouri Farmers Care (MFC) Drive to Feed Kids. The Drive culminated at the Missouri State Fair with a variety of service events. This summer-long effort raised $175,000, which was presented Aug. 17 at the Missouri State Fair to Feeding Missouri—the association of Missouri’s six regional food banks. “Farmers labor each day to provide food, feed and fuel for people throughout our nation,” said Dan Cassidy, secretary of Missouri Farmers Care and chair of the Drive to Feed Kids. “Through the Drive to Feed Kids, a broad coalition of the state’s agricultural groups works to provide a safety net for those in need. We are extremely grateful to those who made this year the largest yet and appreciate our ongoing partnership with Feeding Missouri and its network of food banks. The Drive is gaining momentum and we will continue working to call attention to the issue of food insecurity in Missouri.” On Tuesday, Aug. 13, MFC partnered with the Missouri FFA Association for Missouri FFA Food Insecurity Service Day. More than 750 FFA members and agricultural leaders spent the day packing 128,460 meals to feed families of up to six people. The meals were distributed statewide to Missouri’s regional food banks. “FFA Food Insecurity Day was once again a great success. Students noticed a need in our state and took action, which is what FFA is all about,” said Brenden Kleiboeker, Missouri FFAAssociation President. “I have confidence that students will go back to their communities with these needs in mind and continue making an impact in our state.” Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson, along with Missouri elected officials and agricultural leaders, joined the cause on Thursday, Aug. 15. Together, they packed 1,740 backpack meals that will provide weekend meals through the first month of school for students in Pettis, Benton and Cooper counties. Fairgoers participated in the events by bringing non-perishable food donations on Missouri Farmers Care Food Drive Tuesday. Through these activities and a generous canned food donation by Woods Supermarket, more than 15,000 pounds of non-perishable food was donated to local pantries. In addition, Missouri FFA donated fresh produce from FFA student projects on display at the fair.
