2020 is over, and as most would agree, let’s hope 2021 is better. I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday days and stayed safe.

the Prez Sez

This new year may bring changes to our industry, just as 2020 did. We must come together and work as one, and have more volunteers to help in order to defend our way of business. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. With that said, we are working on the 2021 MPBA Educational Conference, so make plans now to attend! Be watching the website mpbaonline.org for information and updates. If you would like to help this year, message us at 4agfriends@gmail.com. We had a great Conference last year and we are working to make this year even bigger and better. Get your memberships in before March to help make the sign-in work smooth and fast. Hope to see everyone, along with new members, in March! Kevin Beauchamp, MPBA President

Words cannot express what we have been through since March. We have seen a shortage

from your Publicity Director

of puppies, therefore prices are higher than we could have ever dreamed of. But brace yourself because internet sales and prices have taken a dive. Condolences to all that have lost loved ones!! I lost my baby sister. Let’s hope the vaccine eradicates COVID-19. We can’t look back or stew about what might have been. In 2020, MBPA was the only conference that occurred before COVID-19 struck. Now, we must work hard to have a successful conference in 2021. You notice I said “WE”, fellow breeders; these conferences do not magically appear. Please help us with your best efforts, as all the TV ads have monthly donations, and every little bit you can do will help. You can make a few phone calls, get a sponsor that has not participated before. We have a great list of speakers. Please help, because three people cannot do all the work. Think hard: “What can I do to help make our conference successful?”

Ann Quinn, MPBA Publicity Director

P.S. I know not all professional breeders have a USDA license, but I have included the potable water and vet plan. Look ahead... you will be informed and Missouri might be next.

tipping of the bowls. Licensees and registrants that utilize an automatic water system, such as the use of a lixit faucet waterer, should check the system regularly to assure that it is working properly and delivering water continually.

The regulations require that you provide dogs with continuous access to potable drinking water at all times. If during an inspection there are dogs that do not have access to water, this will be considered a noncompliance. There may be circumstances where the water bowl has just spilled, you should discuss options with your inspector. Veterinary Care Requirements for Dogs Q. When do I need an Attending Veterinarian?

When do I need a written Program of Veterinary Care? A. A written Program of Veterinary Care is always needed, and a signed copy should be kept at the licensed or registered facility. Q. What is required on the written Program of Veterinary Care? A. For facilities with dogs, written formal arrangements must be made and signed by the Attending Veterinarian that includes the following; regularly scheduled annual visits, complete physical annual exams of each dog by the Attending Veterinarian, a schedule for vaccinations for contagious and/or deadly diseases of dogs (including rabies, parvovirus and distemper), a schedule for sampling and treatment of parasites and other pests (including fleas, worms, coccidia, giardia, and heartworm), and preventative care and treatment for healthy hair coats, nails, eyes, ears, skin, and teeth.

July 2020 Questions and Answers: Access to Potable Water for Dogs and Cats Q. What access do animals need to potable water? A. Dogs must have continuous access to potable drinking water at all times unless restricted by the attending veterinarian. This includes evenings, weekends, and holidays. The regulation for watering cats has not changed. Cats must be offered potable water as necessary to ensure their health and well- being, but not less than twice daily for a minimum of 1 hour each time, unless restricted by the attending veterinarian or an IACUC approved protocol. Q . Are there any circumstances that water can be restricted? A. Yes, water restrictions may be approved by your Attending Veterinarian (AV) or an IACUC approved protocol. Q. What is potable water? A. The definition of potable water has not changed by the new regulation. Potable water is water that is safe to drink and will not cause illness or injury if consumed. The presence of debris, dirt, algae, animal waste, or other organic matter can be an indicator the water is contaminated. If the water cannot be reasonably assumed to be potable, the water should be replaced with potable water. Other indications of contaminated water include; cloudy or colored water, water giving off an odor, an oil film on top of the water, or if the animals seem reluctant to drink the water. Testing can be performed to determine the safety of the water. Q. Are there specific ways to provide continuous water as required by the regulation? A. No, there are no specific watering systems that are required. Any combination of personnel and equipment can be used if the system provides clean, potable water in clean vessels/containers to the dogs or cats. The water must be delivered on demand or at all times, with bowls refilled as needed for dogs. To prevent spilling and empty bowls that might result, licensees and registrants should consider equipment that prevents

The Honorable Kurt Schrader U.S. House of Representatives 2431 Rayburn HOB Washington, D.C. 20515

The Honorable Ted Yoho U.S. House of Representatives 1730 Longworth HOB Washington, D.C. 20515

The Honorable Ralph Abraham U.S. House of Representatives 417 Cannon HOB Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Representatives Abraham, Yoho and Schrader:

We, the undersigned groups, commend you for introducing H.R. 6921, the Healthy Dog Importation Act . This bipartisan legislation would ensure all canine imports undergo a thorough health screening in order to verify they are healthy and free of disease and parasites before entering the United States. For the vast majority of imported dogs, rabies vaccination documentation is the only prerequisite for entering the country. Despite this, in the past five years, we have seen several cases of rabid dogs coming from Egypt, necessitating the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) to suspend all canine imports from Egypt. Furthermore, imported dogs can also carry – and have been documented carrying – other infectious diseases and parasites (e.g. canine influenza, leptospirosis, melioidosis, onchocercosis and screwworm) that pose a severe threat to other companion animals and livestock. According to a 2019 U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) report, less than one percent of the roughly one million dogs imported into the U.S. each year are required to undergo examination or provide documentation to the Department demonstrating that they are free of diseases other than rabies. The risk of disease introduction and transmission is too high under current import regulations. The Healthy Dog Importation Act would establish commonsense health and vaccination requirements for all dogs imported into the U.S. and promote interagency coordination to address the current gaps in regulatory authority over such imports. We thank you for your leadership on this issue and look forward to working together to strengthen our animal import requirements to better protect both animal and public health.

Sincerely,

WOOF FOR VETS

We Could Not Imagine Woof for Vets Without You! This concludes our stay in the Year of Our Lord 2020. During the Covid 19, Preservation Purebred Pet Breeders astonishingly gave 44 puppies to our veterans. On the behalf of American Veterans and Woof for Vets, we extend our sincere appreciation to Preservation Purebred Pet Breeders who have so graciously donated gorgeous dogs and puppies to our veterans who need them the most – truly “the gift of life.” Thank you to our American veterans, Missouri Pet Breeders Association (MPBA), sponsors, community supporters, and donations for making it all possible. “Disagree with the war, but don’t disagree with a Veteran because he fought and did what he was asked to do.” ~ Vietnam Veteran Haste. Woof for Vets Honor Veterans at the Yakov Theatre In honor of our American Veterans, November 5 through November 11, Branson’s Veterans Homecoming Week is a special time for veterans and families from all branches of the US Armed Forces. A time to come together, to laugh, reminisce, heal and give Eternal Thanks for our great country and thank the men and women who wear or have worn the Military Uniform. On November 10th on stage at the Yakov Theatre, Dee Elledge hosted the events for the Walmart Tribute to the Veterans. Woof for Vets was back for a 2nd time to present an unrehearsed dog show which we never know what might happen on stage. Approximately at 8:40am, Woof for Vets own Sue, Pamela and April (German Shepherd Service Dog) and Beverly took center stage. Beverly sent out a warm thank you to the audience and introductions. We were honored to hear when someone in the audience said “this is my favorite part of the show”. Pamela and April demonstrated how to help a fallen veteran pull themselves up and to stand upright with the assistance of a dog. Pamela talked about how April is trained to find the car in the parking lot. She stressed the importance of this technique especially for those who have PTSD or loss of memory. Sue interviewed the veterans and presented each one with his new furry companion. What a big surprise for Frank when we placed a St. Bernard puppy in his lap. Sue stated “It always makes you feel good in your heart to

surprise someone.” Lots of emotion on stage with tears of joy, laughter, and hearty audience applause. Dee wrapped up the performance and talked about her Frenchie that she received last year from Debra, on the behalf of MPBA. She is so proud and happy to have her Frenchie with her for comfort, healing and to love on. We will see you in 2021. She’s Beautiful! Ruth and Frank, a disabled veteran traveled from Texas to Branson to celebrate veteran’s week and to meet and greet their new forever family member. When Mandy, preservation purebred breeder presented Frank with a gorgeous St. Bernard puppy, he was over the moon with joy and tears; “She’s beautiful!” Local television station Channel 10 interviewed Woof for Vets, Mandy and Frank. Frank stated “Oh my God, she’s beautiful!” When she is old enough, Sassie will be Frank’s service dog to help stabilize him as he tries to walk and get up and down. Frank said “She’s going to be big enough when I start falling backwards, she’ll be able to keep me from hitting the deck, you know, hitting the ground.” You see, Frank did not know that he was getting a St. Bernard puppy on Veterans Day. Ruth and Frank are forever grateful and a big thank you goes out to Mandy, preservation purebred pet breeder for the most beautiful St. Bernard puppy ever. Nicely Done, Mandy! Lebanon Christmas Party The Lebanon Mid-Missouri Responsible Breeders Chapter were privileged to witness the presentation of an adorable Brussel Griffon given byAnn, to a very surprised and speechless Viet Nam Veteran, known as Richard. The family reports that Richard is very thankful for his new companion, she goes where he goes, happily sits on his lap and provides comfort for her owner. Great Job Ann! Once a Perfect Soldier The military adopts a culture of toughness, which in many cases discourages military service members from seeking mental health assistance. A strong sense of self- sufficiency and the so-called ‘warrior mentality’ largely overshadow the idea of seeking help – especially mental

What Is a Service Dog? “Disability” is defined by the Americans with DisabilitiesAct (ADA) as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Service Dogs are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability lead a more independent life. Mobility Dogs assist individuals who use wheelchairs, walking devices, and who have balance issues. Medical Alert Dogs signal the onset of a medical issue such as a seizure or low blood sugar, presence of allergens, and myriad other functions. Psychiatric Service Dogs assist individuals with disabilities such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, post–traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, and other conditions. Medical Device Dogs determine by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, (HUD), has officially put service animals in the same class as medical devices (a dog is in the same class as a wheelchair). Comfort Dogs, while important, does not qualify the dog as a service dog. Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) also known as an assistance animal, does not have to be a dog. Under both Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and fair housing laws, emotional support animals do not have to be trained. They are simply animals that provide emotional support to their owners.

health support which embodies its own set of deep stigmas and stereotypes. This makes it particularly difficult for service members to seek help from an institution or social service organizations outside of it. The most recent data available reveals approximately 17 U.S. veterans die every day – a rate about 1.5 times greater than for Americans who never served in the military. Veterans aged 18 to 34 have higher rates of suicide than any other age group in accordance with the VA National Suicide Data Report. Because the issue of suicide is so personal, and the drivers are of such a desperate act - it only makes sense that metal health care should be a high priority. These brave men and women have suffered losses not only on the battlefield, but from suicide in recent years. “We lost more than 60,000 veterans to suicide over 10 years. That’s ridiculous.” Those who suffer from having PTSD may have long term feelings of upsetting memories, feelings of being on the edge, depression, sleep problems, be irritable, suffer from avoidance and substance abuse, and they may no longer engage in activities they once enjoyed. The condition makes it difficult to hold a job and function in life as they once did. “They were once a perfect soldier now it makes them a broken civilian. Nowhere to fit in.” Proven research states that dogs tend to have a calming effect on their owners. A Purdue University study compared veterans coping with PTS who had a support dog with those who did not. Results showed veterans with a support dog scored higher on a variety of mental health and emotional well-being metrics and had less symptoms of PTS and depression. A survey distributed by the U.S. military found that four-in-five vets with PTS reported their symptoms diminished after being paired with support/comfort dogs. Because of having a dog, veterans can experience the therapeutic and unconditional love only a companion pet can give. Support Animals (ESAs) are meant for people in distress, they offer a constant, comforting presence in the face of uncomfortable symptoms such as: anxiety, depression, autism, bipolar, PTSD, and more. Veterans experiencing a mental health emergency can contact the Veteran Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and select option 1 for a VA staffer. Veterans, troops or their family members can also text 838255 or visit VeteransCrisisLine.net for assistance. -US Department of Veterans Affairs

Happy Holidays!

AKC wishes to thank you, our dedicated breeders for making a difference in the lives of people and their pets. Even with the challenges of 2020 AKC and Purina Pro Plan were still able to bring health clinics to our breeders across a 6-state region, testing over 3,000 dogs! These health clinics brought affordable and reliable health screenings directly to the breeders or their immediate area. X-rays for OFA: ● Hip ● Elbow ● Legge-Cathe-Perthes ● Shoulder ● Spine ● Trachea As well as examinations for OFA: ● Cardiac (Basic) ● Patella ● Dental ● Eye (CAER formerly known as CERF)

During 2020 we also focused on our “Know Your Breed Inside and Out” campaign. We shared a LOT of information about breed standards, breed type, quality and nutritional needs. We handed out “Illustrated Breed Guides” and gave hands on demonstrations and assisted in breed evaluations. We spent countless hours sharing new and tried and true information on socialization, enrichment and re-homing for your dogs. Please, let us know how we can assist you in 2021.

Thank you for allowing the American Kennel Club and Purina Pro Plan to be a part of your community and all that you do. We are truly grateful for your trust and confidence during 2020. Our partnerships are based on mutual trust and respect, and we look forward to next year with you. Best wishes for the New Year! American Kennel Club & Purina Pro Plan

Will N EO P AR ® (canine parvovirus vaccine) override maternal an�bodies in young puppies?

In our study, fi�y-two 3 week old puppies (18 to 21 days of age) were administered a 1cc dose of N EO P AR ® . Prior to vaccina�on a blood sample taken from each of the 52 puppies indicated pre-exis�ng CPV (canine parvovirus) maternal an�bodies were present (range: 32 to 3,162; average of 522). Independent researchers have reported that a CPV maternal an�body �ter of 20 or higher can block conven�onal vaccines from s�mula�ng protec�on. Fourteen days a�er vaccina�on (at five weeks of age) a second blood sample was collected to determine the level of vaccine induced CPV an�body. Ninety percent of the puppies had a posi�ve vaccine induced CPV an�body response to only one dose of N EO P AR ® . A posi�ve vaccine induced CPV an�body response is defined as having at least a 4 fold increase in the an�body level between the before and the 14 day post vaccina�on blood sample.
