AB418, a bill to ban ear cropping of dogs, was held on the Suspense File yesterday by the Assembly Appropriations Committee. The bill may not be considered again until spring of 2006 when yet another Suspense hearing will be held. While AB418 could indeed be released next year, the proposed legislation is dead for 2005.

Congratulations to the countless purebred dog owners who contacted their Assemblymembers to express opposition to AB418. We urge you to continue monitoring this issue closely and watch AKC's Web site for news of further developments.
