breed. I have just returned from Europe, where I was officially invited

IDC Membership - New applications.
We submitted our official application to be members of the IDC.
Mr. Wiblishauser, president of the IDC, invited me to introduce to all
present at the Congress our new American Dobermann Association.
I explained to the Congress that we are the only Dobermann Association
in US that uses the FCI Standard for all our events. For the correct application
of the standard, we introduced a Technical Program for Quality where the
essential tools to develop this program are the Breeding Regulations and
the Trial Regulations. We gave a copy of our program to all the official
delegations present at the Congress.
After this presentation I asked if there were any questions.
At this point Mr. Hans Muller, president of the FCI, intervened and gave
his full support for the American Dobermann Association, ADA, repeating
the importance of using the FCI Standard and the European show style in
US for our dobermann breed. His positive talk was very supportive of ADA
and its program. After this speech, Mr. Hans Wiblishauser called for the
vote and there was no country who voted against ADA. Thus, our Application
was successful and the President, Mr. Hans Wiblishauser, extended a welcome
and congratulations to ADA on behalf of the IDC.
Dearest Dobermann Friends, I would like to share with you this very important
news: The American Dobermann Association, ADA, is now an official member
of the IDC at only eight months from the day of its foundation!
Thank You again for your support!
May God bless and guide us!
