    What is a Title, really?
    by Sandy Mowrey who writes 'A Common Thread' article in Front and Finish

    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 honour the dog, an ultimate memorial. It
    will remain, in record and in 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 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 praise in one small set of initials after the

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