WHY TITLE A DOG?


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 record and in memory for as long as anything in this world can  remain. Few humans will do as well or better in that regard.


And  though the dog itself doesn’t know or care that its achievements have  been noted, a title says many things in the world of humans, where such  things count.


A title says your dog was intelligent and  adaptable, and good-natured. It says that your dog loved you enough to  do the things that please you, however crazy they may have sometimes  seemed.


And a title says that you loved your dog, that you loved  to spend time with it because it was a good dog, that you believed in it  enough to give it yet another chance when it failed, and that, in the  end, your faith was justified.


A title proves that your dog  inspired you to that special relationship enjoyed by so few; that in a  world of disposable creatures, this dog with a title was greatly loved,  and loved greatly in return.


And when that dear short life is  over, the title remains as a memorial of the finest kind, the best you  can give to a deserving friend, volumes of pride in one small set of  initials after the name.


A title earned is nothing less than love and respect, given and received, and permanently recorded.
