HI...... I AM NAPOLEON WITH MY HANDLER POLLY LAMARINE.

Napolean&Polly

AM / CAN GCH SUNSET'S DEANNA'S ROCKN' THE BOAT..........AKA NAPOLEON

NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT ME...... I AM BREED TYPE, SOUND BOTH MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. I CAN HEAR VERY WELL AND MY EYES ARE TESTED NORMAL. I AM VERY FERTILE TOO!

I AM THE FIRST AMERICAN / CANADIAN VISIBLE MERLE PATTERNED CHAMPION. I HAVE HEARD THE JUDGES COMMENT ON HOW SAD IT IS TO HAVE A FEW EXHIBITOR/BREEDERS SO AGAINST MY COLOR. I AM STILL A YOUNGSTER AND NEED TO GROW SOME COAT..... BUT I AM BEATING SOME OF THE TOP SPECIALS OUT THERE. I LOVE TO SHOW! IT IS FUN..... BUT IF THE PATTERN IS EVER A DQ....PART OF MY BREEDS' HERITAGE WILL BE LOST. ALL THE HIDDEN MERLE PATTERNED ONES WILL STILL BE ABLE TO BE SHOWN....AS THEY HAVE BEEN SINCE THE BEGINNING. BUT I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STRUT MY STUFF. I THINK THEY ARE AFRAID I WILL BEAT THEM. [WOOF]

CH SUNSET'S STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION...AKA STRETCH

STRETCH IS SIRED BY AM/CAN CH REGNIER'S ONTH' EDGE OF SUNSET [#3 SC '99]

ALL OF MY MERLE PATTERNED RELATIVES HAVE BEEN CERF'D...... AND ALL HAVE BEEN [[[[[[ NORMAL ]]]]]]

DISQUALIFYING MY COLOR PATTERN WILL NOT BE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE BREED. IT WILL NOT STOP THE PET BREEDERS AND MILLERS ....... SOME SAY SO WHAT?

WELL THE PET AND MILLERS ACCOUNT FOR 90% + OF THE AKC REG. CHIHUAHUAS EACH YEAR. DO YOU NOT CARE ABOUT THE WELFARE OF MY BREED? DO YOU NOT WANT TO EDUCATE VS ELIMINATE? DISQUALIFYING ME AND OTHERS LIKE ME WILL ONLY MAKE THE PET TRADE CAPITALIZE ON THE ''RARE'' COLOR AND INDISCRIMINATELY BREED FOR THE PATTERN. IT WILL NOT STOP MY NON-MERLE PATTERNED OR CRYPTIC MERLE PATTERNED LITTERMATES TO COMPETE AND IT WILL NOT STOP ME FROM PRODUCING NON-MERLE AND CRYPTIC MERLE SHOW PROSPECTS.

I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER TO INCLUDE AN EDUCATIONAL PAMPHLET WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL AKC REGISTRATION ON RESPONSIBLE OWNERSHIP AND RESPONSIBLE BREEDING AND SHOWING OF MY BREED....INSTEAD OF SPENDING ALL THIS TIME AND MONEY AND DIVIDING THE MEMBERSHIP.

IN A BREED THAT HAS ALLOWED ''ALL COLORS'' FROM THE BEGINNING...... WHAT COLOR OR PATTERN WILL BE NEXT TO ELIMINATE??? WILL IT BE YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?

WHEN YOU VOTE.....PLEASE KEEP IN MIND....EDUCATE....PLEASE DO NOT ELIMINATE.

I AM NAPOLEON

THE LITTLE MERLE PATTERNED DOG THAT IS ROCKN' THE BOAT AND MAKING HISTORY. I LOVE EVERYONE......PLEASE LET ME STAY AND COMPETE.

Photo taken at Westminster Kennel Club 2010 - Napolean was the first visible merle to compete at Westminster and in 2010 made the cut for BOV. He really showed his heart out!
