Torej danes sem po emailu prejela naslednji tekst. Ker mislim da je zadeva aktualna tudi za slovenske lastnike in ljubitelje psov, in ker avtorica zeli, da se razsiri, ga v celoti objavljam:

My dear dog-friends!
I have been a member of MEOE (Hungarian Kennel Club) for more than 20 years, an international FCI-show judge, president of the Golden Retriever Breeders organisation which is recognised by the Hungarian Agricultural Ministry, and finally, but above all a veterinarian with private practice.
On June 07, 2002, MEOE-(Hungarian Kennel Club) initiated disciplinary action against me, at the same time suspending my membership rights as well as my show judging
My participation in a meeting which took place on the 27th of October 2001, in the Hungarian Agricultural Ministry, and the statement of my opinion in that meeting stands as justification for this action against me.
The evidence presented against me by the MEOE is taken from the minutes of the above mentioned meeting. In the minutes from this meeting I was quoted to have said the following :
"…MEOE continuously misinforms the dog-community. MEOE is interested not in quality dog breeding but in mass production." (The rest of the text attributed to me relates to a different topic.)
I continue to maintain my opinion that MEOE misinforms both the Hungarian and the international dog-community and primarily the FCI about the kynologic situation in Hungary. MEOE is silent about its resistance to the new Hungarian regulations aimed at supporting quality dog breeding which is why MEOE lost its status as the top organisation of Hungarian kynology, and its right to maintain the administration of the national Hungarian Dog Pedigree Registry. Presently, MEOE has only the right to administrate its own private pedigrees which are not permitted to be distributed.
MEOE is not willing to abide by these Hungarian laws and make contracts with those organisations working according to the Hungarian laws, even though these organisations were founded by and strictly function by FCI rules. Instead MEOE labels them as "dissident organisations".
I continue to maintain my opinion that MEOE is interested in the mass breeding of dogs. For years, MEOE has registered the pedigrees of about 100 thousand new dogs per year and raises a giant income from this. The exact statistics are not published. MEOE has registered all these pedigrees on the basis of its 2 pages (!) of breeding regulations, which, to the present day, don’t address in any way the subject of using veterinary screening tests aimed at the hereditary diseases as a condition for breeding! (Typically, MEOE’s disciplinary rules are thoroughly worked out in 12 pages of text.)
This means that today, in the XXI. century, as Hungary is making an effort to get into the EU, there are tens of thousands of puppies being born in Hungary and receiving pedigrees stamped with the FCI stamp--puppies whose parents and ascendants have never been screened for HD/ED, PRA/PRD/HC/CEA or any of the other hereditary diseases. As a practising small animal specialist veterinarian, I continue to maintain my opinion that only healthy dogs should be bred, and that MEOE doesn't want to introduce these screening tests because then suddenly the number of breeding dogs, and with that the number of puppies to register in the pedigree, would considerably decrease in Hungary.
Neither the breeding of dogs suffering with hereditary disease nor the mass breeding dogs is in agreement with the basic principles of the FCI. It is especially interesting and thought-provoking to consider why the FCI overlooks this behaviour.
It is another fact, that MEOE today, in XXI. century Europe, allows itself to use legal means to revenge the statement of an opinion which occurred in a meeting.
P.S.: I permit everybody to spread further this letter.
