    Over several years, there has been some concern over the years that the Lagotto may have a gene that causes the incidence of early cataract development.  Some of you may have seen a post on Facebook recently from a breeder in Finland who has found the cataract issue in one of her lines and is supporting further genetic studies to find and isolate the gene.  While a lab in Finland had agreed to conduct research, they have since found out that the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics in Germany had already begun such a study.  Here is a link with further information regarding the study:  http://www.greccio.de/pdfs/katarakt_1.pdf

    Anyone wishing to participate in this study should contact Eva Fauth, juergen.fauth@t-online.de and she will guide you on what is needed and what to do.  The testing will require blood samples and they are looking for samples from both cataract free and affected dogs.  Some samples have already been collected in Finland, and hopefully they will work together in this important work.

    The American Kennel Club is hosting it's 13th Annual Dog Ownership Day in Raleigh NC on September 19th.  This event is free to the public and has many demonstrations, activities and a Meet the Breed event.  See link for more details:  http://cdn.akc.org/akcdoglovers/NEWVERS_RDO_Flier2015_YGuidesr.pdf


    The LRCA will be attending this event and I am in need of someone to be the set-up/contact person for the Meet the Breed event as well as participants that could go to show your pup off and educate the public on the Lagotto.


    If you would like to participate, please contact me at DirectorSM@lagottous.com.  The LRCA appreciates your support, without you these events wouldn't be possible for us to educate the public about our wonderful breed!


    Thank you,

    Sandy Mignonga
