History of Dilutes in the United Kingdom – 2. The Dreamcoat connection

dreamcoat1

 

Dreamcoat is the most prominent puppy mill for dilutes in the United Kingdom. The problem is that a lot of their dilute dogs are registered as Labrador Retrievers by The Kennel Club and that none of them are restricted.
Owner of Dreamcoat seems to be one Ruth Antoniades from Thames Valley, London.

As usual it started with acquiring with dilute dogs from the United States. Pheasant Hills Indian Chieftan is a dilute carrying (Dd) dog.

Her sister Red Rock’s Enchanted Spirit is also acquired, to get the puppy mill running.

As you can see, dilutes are being produced on a near industrial scale, and The Kennel Club sits still and does nothing about it. Registrations of these dilutes on a large scale is not a problem whatsoever. If you ask the Kennel Club about this, they say, “We trust the people to be honest when they register their dogs.”

Well, as you can see, this “honesty” approach doesn’t work. In the mean time The Kennel Club keep filling their pockets. As well as the dilute breeders, who simultaneously keep fouling the Labrador gene pool with their dilutes, on an ever larger scale. Without any restrictions.

I’m not saying there’s correlation between the two phenomenons. But one wonders…
