White Shepherd

The White Shepherd emerged from white-coat lines of the German Shepherd dog in Canada and the United States and from European imports. The German Shepherd and the white German Shepherd are the same dog; the White Shepherd breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club on April 14, 1999. In German Shepherds, the recessive gene for white coat hair was cast in the breed gene pool by the late 19th and early 20th century breeding program that developed and expanded the German Shepherd Dog breed in Germany. A white herding dog named Greif was the grandfather of Horand von Grafrath, the dog acknowledged as the foundation of all contemporary German Shepherd bloodlines. Information provided in early books on the German Shepherd make mention of Greif and other white German herding dogs, with upright ears and a general body description that resembles modern German Shepherd Dogs, shown in Europe as early as 1882; the early 20th century German Shepherd breeding program extensively line bred and inbred "color coat" dogs that carried Greif's recessive gene for "white coats" to refine and expand the population of early German Shepherd Dogs.

White coats were made a disqualification in the German Shepherd Dog Club of Germany breed standard in 1933 after the breed club came under the control of the German Nazi party that took over all aspects of German society in February 1933 when Adolf Hitler declared a state of emergency. The German breed standard remained unchanged as German breeders repopulated the breed in the years after the conclusion of WWII. In 1959 the German Shepherd Dog Club of America adopted the colored breed standard of the parent German breed club. White-coated German Shepherd Dogs were barred from competition in the American Kennel Club conformation ring in the United States starting in 1968. AKC-registered white German Shepherd Dogs may still compete in performance events. During 1969, white dog fanciers in the United States and Canada formed their own "White German Shepherd" breed clubs and showing their dogs at small specialty dog shows throughout North America; the White Shepherd Club of Canada has been dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the White Shepherd since 1971.

Formed as a Chapter of the White German Shepherd Dog Club of America, the club was renamed White Shepherd Club of Canada in 1973. Its first conformation show was held that year with 25 people in attendance. In Canada, the Canadian Kennel Club is incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act, a federal statute under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, the governing body that sets down recognition and standards for all pure animal breeds. For a long time, Agriculture Canada had protected white German Shepherds from the many attempts by the German Shepherd Dog Club of Canada to have white dogs disqualified from the CKC conformation ring, as had long been the case in the USA; some brave members of WSCC had shown in the CKC breed rings and had accumulated points toward their dogs' CKC Championships. That all changed in 1998, when the color white was disqualified from the CKC German Shepherd breed standard. Disappointed but undeterred, the WSCC continues to work toward full breed recognition of the White Shepherd as a separate breed with the CKC.

The club hosts shows several times a year in combination with the American White Shepherd Association. Event dates and locations are published on its web site. In September 1995, a small group of fanciers of the white-coated German Shepherd Dog established the American White Shepherd Association, a new club to advance and protect the White Shepherd breed in the United States. In cooperation with the White Shepherd Club of Canada, AWSA wrote and published a new breed standard, petitioned the American Kennel Club for full recognition as a unique pure breed, separate from and independent of the German Shepherd Dog; as of this writing, AKC has not granted recognition or registration for the White Shepherd breed, but the breeders and members of AWSA carry on with independently-held club activities as well as running and maintaining the private club registry. AWSA continues to negotiate with the AKC for breed recognition as well as with the German Shepherd Dog Club of America for breed separation.

Until such time as GSDCA can be persuaded to grant official release of the white dogs, AKC must continue to register all white German Shepherd Dogs born from two AKC-registered German Shepherd parents as German Shepherd Dogs. In 1999, a group of AWSA members organized and established the United White Shepherd Club as a United Kennel Club affiliated parent club, they petitioned for a new White Shepherd breed classification within UKC. The United Kennel Club accepted the UWSC's petition and created a new and separate White Shepherd breed conformation standard and registry; the White Shepherd breed was recognized by UKC on April 14, 1999. Today, United Kennel Club recognizes both the White Shepherd breed standard as well as the original German Shepherd Dog breed conformation standard where white and colored dogs continue to be considered together as one breed. Neither UKC- nor AWSA-registered White Shepherds can be registered as FCI White Swiss Shepherd Dogs. Breed clubs associated with each of these unique breed lines maintain their own breed standards for appearance and temperament.

The breed "appearance" standard given below is appropriate to the UKC-registered White Shepherd Dog and, with a few minor changes - in wording and layout - to the written standard of the AWSA club as well. No matter which country they hail from, White Shepherds excel in performance events such as competiti


Vyaghrapada, was one of the mythical rishis of ancient India. The legend states that Vyaghrapada was a rishi and he was entrusted with the task of picking up fresh flowers, untouched by the honeybees, for offering to Shiva in his aspect as Nataraja in the temple complex of Chidambaram, located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. While plucking the flowers, Vyaghrapada would get wounded on account of thorns and the rough surface. Shiva conferred on him feet of tigers and this ended the sage’s miseries. So armed with the tiger’s feet, the sage moved from place to place, including climbing rough trees to pluck fresh flowers untouched by the honey bees, his image and iconography depicts him with the legs of a tiger. He is shown having a tiger-like tail, he is shown alongside Patanjali, both are depicted as offering homage to Shiva in his aspect as Natraja. Sthalasayana Perumal Temple, Tirusirupuliyur in Tamil Nadu, a Vishnu temple, is known to have been visited by Vyaghrapada with Patanjali and got the darshan of Lord Vishnu in the form of Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam.

Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney

Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney was an American educator, poet and editor. Remembered for her poem "Little Things", many of her poems were set to music and published in school textbooks, used in church hymn-books for more than half a century, she died November 1908, in Galesburg, Illinois. Carney had charge of the "Poet's Corner" in the Boston Trumpet, she furnished both prose and verse, for the Christian Freeman when it was established. Something by her appeared in every number of the Rose of Sharon, in the Lily of the Valley. In the Universalist Miscellany, her articles bore the pen name of "Rev. Peter Benson's Daughter". In 1840, she commenced writing for the Ladies' Repository, under the signature of "Julia." She was a regular contributor to the Boston Olive Branch. She wrote two volumes, published by J. M. Usher, entitled Gifts from Julia, a series of Sunday school question books. Poetry of the Seasons was published by Abel Tompkins. Julia Abigail Fletcher was born April 1823 in Lancaster, Massachusetts.

She inherited patriotism from Revolutionary ancestors, being a granddaughter of Major Timothy Fletcher, of Lancaster, of Major Moses Warren, of Jay, Maine. She had no recollection of a time, her older brothers and sister were happy to write down her rhymes many years before she learned to do it herself. Her earliest sorrow was the opinion of a maiden aunt expressed to her mother, that "if she let that child go on writing verses, she would never be good for anything else." This advice led to a maternal injunction, "Never let me see any more of your poetry." Subsequently, the mother found her daughter's rhymes hidden in the attic and repealed the injunction. Several years of invalidism, the result of scarlet fever at the age of eight years, interfered with her education, but from her couch, she read through the libraries of the neighborhood, her first works of verse were published in the Lancaster and Concord local papers at the age of fourteen. Educated at Lancaster Academy, her school compositions, chiefly in verse, were sent to several papers and magazines in Boston, whose editors were pleased with the youthful effusions, encouraged her to write.

When seventeen, she went to Philadelphia, where her married sister resided, there remained two years, teaching in a private school. Returning to Massachusetts to the home of her parents, she served a summer's apprenticeship in the district school, where she attracted commendation from the committee by keeping a unruly school in good order without corporal punishment. During her life as a teacher, she wrote many poems and sketches, most of them for radical papers with reform ideas, a series of Sunday school instruction books, which were used for many years in liberal churches, until Lesson Papers superseded the use of textbooks. In 1844, she was elected teacher of one of the primary schools in Boston, where she continued to teach until her marriage in the spring of 1849. From 1849, her writing was chiefly prose, for the Phrenological Journal, Science of Health, Midland Monthly, our various denominational papers the New Covenant. In 1869 and 1870, she conducted the "Home and Fireside" department of the New York National Agriculturist, the Bee-Keepers′ Journal.

As she was expected to fill several columns with continued novelties, she surprised her readers with a variety of signatures, including: "Minnie May," "Frank Fisher," "Sadie Sensible," and "Minister's Wife". Her signature of "Julia," however, though known to her friends, was dropped by those who copied her articles, so it happened that those finding favor with the public went the rounds of paper and schoolbook, many of them in the books from which she herself taught, without credit, some of them marked "Anon." As a writer, using too many signatures became a serious mistake, not only taking parts of her real name, sometimes her husband's, but fictitious ones. This was done to give variety, when under engagement to fill a certain number of columns of "Home and Fireside" department in a New York City monthly, as a minister's wife, who wanted to criticise the relations of pastor and people without giving offense, she was interested in the reform movements of the time, wrote on their behalf. She was actively engaged in Sunday school work, was well known as a writer for children.

In life, she wrote chiefly in prose, short sketches of real life, or essays upon temperance, other serious subjects. In 1849, she married a Universalist minister. After a year's residence in Maine, another in Cooperstown, New York, they took up their home in the West. Here, amid the many duties of pioneer life, the care of little children, she had time for writing. In 1871, the family had removed to Apple Creek Prairie, Illinois where the people had commenced a church under his ministry, he left home on horseback, was returning to observe their wedding anniversary, when he was thrown from his horse. At first, it was supposed the injury would detain him at home for a few weeks, he was sure of a speedy recovery, he died May 4, 1871, was buried at White Hall, Illinois. The widow was still in mourning when her son William, age 20, died of sunstroke. Four other children had died in infancy, leaving three sons still with her, she moved in with her oldest son, Fletcher Carney, an attorney of Galesburg, but made frequent visits
