What Is A Title Really?

  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 the record and in the   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  himself doesn't know or care that his 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 him because he  was a good dog, and that you believed in him enough to give him yet  another chance when he failed, and that in the end your faith was  justified.

  A Title proves that your dog inspired you to have the 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 before or after the name.

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