A lie is circulating stating that the LBA was rejected by the UKC and its CDHPR. The LBA and OEBKC were both approved as the parent clubs of the OEB. The two clubs drafted and submitted the required joint Letter of Intent and Standard. The LBA believed we would be contacted by the UKC to explain the details of what admission meant to our club but it never happened. We waited patiently. The LBA heard nothing from the UKC until the day before they were to announce the admission of the OEB by the CDHPR. We then learned that dog owners would deal directly with the UKC and we would be losing the authority to require hip x-rays before breeding approval was given and we would lose the authority to decide when and what outcross dogs could be brought in. People from other breeds would be making those decisions for us. At that point the LBA declined to proceed. The LBA was never rejected. Obviously the UKC would have had to reject us in a written communication and there is no such document because it never happened….
