American Kennel Club Wants 2016 World Dog Show To Be Removed From Russia For LGBT Intolerance

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayDogAmazingLGBT

Gay rights dog!!

Way to take an incredible stance!

The president and CEO of the American Kennel Club (AKC), and the chairman of the board, have written an open letter, in hopes of having the 2016 World Dog Show moved out of Russia!

They want the show moved out of the country because they seriously disagree with Russia's ridiculous laws regarding homosexuality and transgendered individuals.

The letter reads:

"One of the most compelling aspects of the human-canine bond – cherished internationally more than ever before – is the fact that our dogs love us unconditionally. Dogs do not discriminate. Gender, race, sexual orientation and other status do not enter the equation of responsible pet ownership. That is why the American Kennel Club and our constituency are puzzled and disappointed by the decision to allow Russia to host the 2016 World Dog Show. The proliferation of anti-gay and lesbian laws in Russia today is both disturbing and shocking to our community. The choice of this country as a venue for such a prestigious dog show flies in the face of the ideals of the human-canine bond.

On behalf of the American Kennel Club, our member clubs, and the American purebred dog fancy, we urge you to move the 2016 World Dog Show from Russia to a nation that respects and upholds human rights for all its citizens. The international dog community deserves to enjoy the World Dog Show in a place that stands for freedom and equal rights for all. AKC cannot and will not support participation in the 2016 World Dog Show if it is held in Russia.

As exhibitors, breeders, handlers and trainers, we teach our dogs many things. But there is no denying, they teach us too. Our bond with dogs is not defined by the type of person who holds the leash. We cannot support competition in an environment where tolerance does not exist."

That is soooooo amazing!!

We all need to strive to be the kind of people are dogs think we are!!

We really hope Russia gets the message: it's time for equality for all!!! Puppies and peace! Could we ask for anything better??

    Extortion. I will never watch their program again.

    "ARE" dogs? I. CAN'T.

    PEREZ, and whoever else is on your staff, you NEED to hire a proof reader! Even someone to work from home and literally just SPEED READ and REREAD the posts before they're posted (on all sites). This isn't just a one man blog sitting in his one bedroom apartment anymore! The amount of typos, and sentences that don't make any sense what so ever (due to you revising them, but forgetting to take out what was originally written! ie: She wasn't able to make the show, and would have liked to go, and said she would have liked to go.

    Shit like that, and grammar mistakes and typos all the time! It's PAINFULLY clear that the writers themselves don't even reread before they post. It's mind blowing to me lol.

    Re: Default Setteen – How is this extortion? Do you know what extortion means?

  5. mikal says – reply to this


    Really? This is news. You have fallen so far down the totem pole as reporting anything of substance. You do realize that over 90% of people now thinks Russia rocks because of their moral high ground don't you Mario?

  6. Default Setteen says – reply to this


    I'm kidding a bit but I'm not. The American kennel club is not going to extort my viewership by blackmailing me by boycotting Russia for taking a stance that opposes their stance on morality. I have not noticed them boycotting countries which have child pornography rings, or who allow prostitution, which the u.n. is guilty of twisting the arm of all countries in the world into accepting. extortion is synonymous with blackmail, which is extortion by a private person. In addition, under some statutes a corporation may be liable for extortion.

    Re: Kim – Kim, go proofread your ass.

  8. And another thing says – reply to this


    Re: Kim – whatsoever is one word, idiot. You forgot to close your parenthesis. Don't you ever proofread, numbskull?

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – I fail to understand why you even read this site — other than to display your stupidity for all of the world to see. What a pathetic (probably small-dicked) person you must be. LOL

    Re: And another thing – you should be kinder to Kim. Didn't you see where her mind was blown?

  11. Stevie says – reply to this


    Re: FrankieLA – probably to see idiots like you whine.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – Who's the Idiot, I hope your not Jewish/Polish/etc The Nazi's pulled the same shit to make it look as if there was no issue when they did the Olympics, yet once they left the Horror came back. When YOU die, YOUR BELIEFS DIE WITH YOU!

    Re: badnfluenz – maybe you could mark all the people that don't agree with you with a serial number. After all, that's how ww2 began…both sides boycotting each other.

    Re: Burnside – did i mention nuclear war u vaporist pile of warmongering shit… they arnt above the world order .. they cant just take away human rights of a whole group of people and not have to face the worlds wrath…

  17. Burnside says – reply to this


    Re: GO iron ur balls 777 – you're really looking for a nuclear halocaust, aren't you? You going to take on china too?? Sure, blow the whole world up so you can have your shifting morality. Why should you be inconvenienced? Oh, while you are at it, boycott Africa, no more aid to them, they don't support neo nazi gay rights either.

  18. k8 says – reply to this


    Yeah, because the anti-gay propaganda law is so much worse than the US drone strikes on civilian targets. Way to be trendy, American Kennel Club.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – I agree. Gays have raped the rainbow too!

  20. Default Setteen says – reply to this


    Re: k8 – you are right…anything to distract us from the real news.

    Re: Burnside – ur deluded they arnt going to start ww3 which btw isnt far off just because they boycott them they wont start till they are ready in the mean time do what the hell u like to russia they wont be the one starting it …

  22. WillowWynde says – reply to this


    Let me preface this by saying Russia's anti-gay stance is ridiculous. With that said, it's a shame the AKC doesn't go after puppy mills with as much fervor…

    What has a dog show got to do with LGBT? It's a dog show and has nothing to do with gay rights. Really, get a life.
