Everyone's dancing around it. The first club listed is not even in existence anymore...nor is the breeder/man listed there in the breed (Mac Harris).
The second club listed made his push for UKC when the breed went FCI. He's used the FSS since the mid 90's, but never finishes anything. For example, they pushed to get the breed UKC to undercut the effect of the FCI recognition, using a standard modified by their club, but when it came to being the parent breed club for UKC, gossip is they wouldn't turn over their books in order to get the privelege. The majority of their breeders may register with UKC but they don't show or participate in other events through them. They also are on record for voting down a hip certification requirement for breeding through their club.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
