Ask Uncle Chico # 207
The “fila”-OFB inventor continues to be omitted since Nov/18 and does not answer or comment on
simple questions addressed to him by email about his new invention, experience and theory called the “fila”-OFB…
Uncle Chico’s articles are always full of arguments, top-notch, polite and respectful…
The Great journalist Ibrahim Sued, the Fila Brasileiro and the functional illiteracy.
My dear Fila Brasileiro (FB) and CAFIB friends, continuing with our conversations…
Question # 544: Dear Uncle Chico, the inventor of the “fila”-OFB already answered the 100 questions about the invention of this dog sent directly to his email, which were asked by you, Quinzinho Liberato, Jonas Iacovantuono and Fabiano Nunes? And may I add: congratulations, because your articles are always full of arguments and top-notch, polite and respectful.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Unfortunately, not. Uncle Chico does not lower the level… Even because he has thousands of true arguments…
Question # 545: My old friend Uncle Chico, I didn’t understand anything posted on April 4th. by the inventor of the “fila”-OFB. Instead of commenting, responding and defending himself from the serious mistakes correctly pointed out by you about the OFB invention in articles Uncle Chico Newsletter # 292, 291 and 279, as always in a very polite and respectful way, the inventor of the “fila”-OFB. decided to write about an old Brazilian journalism ! As always very confused, the inventor of the “fila”-OFB wrote about a former journalist named Ibrahim Sued, who died some 30 years ago. Did he forget to take the black stripe medicine? Lol, lol…
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I did not understand anything either. As always his texts are very confused.
Question # 546: Uncle Chico, who was this FB breeder named Ibrahim Sued mentioned by the inventor of the “fila”-OFB last week ? I’ve never heard nothing about him. What did he do that was so important to FB?
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Forget about it. The inventor of the “fila”-OFB texts are always very confusing. He posts texts as always superficial and generalist and he always omit himself never answering the questions that were asked to him about such OFB dog and sent to his personal email. His text gives rise to multiple and vague interpretations. Not being objective can be a strategy widely used by those unable to explain themselves. Everything about the OFB is very confusing…
However, it is worth mentioning that Ibrahim Sued (see photo 1 below) was one of the most famous Brazilian journalists, who maintained a daily column in the newspaper O GLOBO, at the time one of the most important and most widely read Brazilian newspapers. His column was undoubtedly the most widely read in Brazil and addressed, among other topics, politics, economics, culture, science, art, leisure, sports and social life in Brazil.
It was precisely in this super-noble and crowded space that Ibrahim Sued wrote many notes and many posted photos of the PURE CAFIB Fila, thus supporting the cause of Uncle Chico and CAFIB. As a gratitude, CAFIB-Rio created a special award in his honor: Best Temperament (see photo 4 below). As far as my knowledge goes Ibrahim Sued has never posted pictures of dogs other than CAFIB’s Fila-PURE. Eugenio Henrique Pereira de Lucena, former president of BKC and CBKC and his friends tried many times to dissuade Ibrahim Sued from publicizing CAFIB, but this great journalist has always shown himself faithful to PURE-Fila and had great discernment to give his support to this so noble cause. If he were alive, he would certainly be writing against the new OFB invention !!!
My dear Ibrahim Sued with whom I go out several times during the night in Rio, I played Carnival, I paraded in Scholl of Samba named Academics de Santa Cruz (1985) and I often attended his apartment in Ipanema, he had enormous merit because he was the son of poor immigrants, he started as a photographer with a borrowed camera and he had only one suit to work… The great and late Brazilian journalist Ricardo Boechat, who left us a few years ago, considered him his Master because he worked with him from de 1970 to 1983, until he took up another column also at O GLOBO newspaper and then took off on Rádio e TV Bandeirantes. Our dear Boechat, whom I also had the pleasure to know and also to work affectionately called him The Turkish (see both in photo 2 below). Ibrahim Sued was such a good journalist, he gave so many firsthand journalistic scoops, that he was known as Immortal without Uniform in an allusion to the Brazilian Academy of Letters uniform (see photo 3 below, with Ibrahim Sued on the cover of the wonderful journal O Pasquim).
See several notes and photos posted in Ibrahim Suede’s column by clicking on http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fotos/1837.jpg , http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/16-IMPRENSA-FILA-BRASILEIRO/16-2.jpg , http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/16-IMPRENSA-FILA-BRASILEIRO/16-30.jpg , http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/16-IMPRENSA-FILA-BRASILEIRO/16-24.jpg and http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/16-IMPRENSA-FILA-BRASILEIRO/16-25.jpg .
Concluding in practice:
Do you have an idea of how much these notes and photos published in the column by Ibrahim Sued in O GLOBO, and so many others published in the columns of Paulo Godinho in Jornal do Brasil and Antonio Carvalho Mendes in the newspaper O Estado de São Paulo have empowered and made CAFIB much more known and robust ?
Do you have any idea of the visibility and respectability that CAFIB has won in Brazil ?
Do you have any idea how many Brazilians stopped buying “fila” from CBKC-FCI because of these constant reports of FB miscegenation?
Do you have any idea how much these three journalists have demoralized the BKC, CBKC, FCI, the first FB cross-breeders of the 70/80s and the “filas-mestizos”?
Precisely because of this profound ignorance, I have been writing for many years that functional illiteracy in Fila Brasileiro is a great and terrible VIRUS and PRAGUE !!!
Question # 547: Received from a ex-partner of the former SPFB: My dear Uncle Chico, below is a photo of another “aboriginal” dog and lost canine link between Brazil from the pre-Columbian era and the 1950s in the Brazilian city of Varginha-MG. This very rare specimen was rescued in the Brazilian city of Itu-SP last week. At first it was thought to be another simple mongrel or mutt, but luckily a world-renowned scientist was passing by and providing for his rescue. Thus, an important part of the “aboriginal” dog history of Brazil from the Upper Paleolithic period was saved.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Wonderful !!! Did they warn the Smithsonian Institute?
Question # 548: Received from CAFIB USA: Uncle Chico, just perfect your Uncle Chico Newsletter # 291. All the points detailed by you were excellent and valid. I even feel bad for the inventor of the “fila”-OFB, because as you wrote in the past he had Qualifying FBs of the CAFIB level Good and Very Good. Although he never got to the breeding level of Paulo Angotti from Ibituruna Kennel also from the city of Governador Valadares-MG. It’s really a shame that he ruined his legacy.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I agree. Really a big pity.
Question # 549: Also received from CAFIB USA: Uncle Chico, me and a group of friends want to recreate a breed called Boston Terrier. We are going to organize a Genetic Pool with the help of scientists, University, veterinarians, etc. We would never do this experiment alone in a non-scientific way and without the help of professionals. If it turns out to be successful, we will never call it the ORIGINAL Boston Terrier.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I wish you the best of luck in your new experience. I’m glad you’re doing it with friends, transparently and based on science. That is to say: far from the common “I guess” and the usual inventor blindness who is always so dictatorial.
Question # 550: Uncle Chico, I think it is absurd for the inventor of the “fila”-OFB to want to replace the Fila Brasileiro for a mongrel or mutt type of dog. And still want to steal the name of FB! Really, as you pointed out, he was in a hurry in this new experience that started too fast and has everything to go wrong. After all, not even Sobraci which issue OFBs pedigrees recognizes that this dog is a purebred dog !!!
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I agree.
Question # 551: Chico, as for the inventor of the “fila”-OFB wishing to use the traditional name Fila Brasileiro for me it is evident that he believes that he will not succeed without a connection with the FB. At the most I think that he is not actually creating anything new or improved, he is just trying to invent a low-quality Fila small in size and more commercial that resembles a mongrel, whose phenotype has always been Reproved in CAFIB’s APTs, including by Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz of whom he tries so hard to get attached, although he never had a relationship with him. Just look on your site and blog, after all you have already posted dozens of photos of Reproved dogs in CAFIB’s APT.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Perfect.
Question # 552: Uncle Chico, if SOBRACI does not recognize OFB as a purebred dog, how can this notary club issue and sell pedigrees for this new type of dog?
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I have no idea, nor can I understand this serious dog notary club incongruity. Sobraci also omits and does not explain.
Question # 553: Since it is marketing, I suggest a promotion of the type: return two and do not keep any … What do you think?
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Lol, lol…
Question # 554: These dogs are not cattle dogs, as they do not know how to manage cattle. They may even be good marathoners, but cattle understand nothing … Do you agree?
Resposta do Tio Chico: Yes.
Question # 555: My dear Uncle Chico, in your article Uncle Chico informs # 292 the “fila”-OFB now has at least two different phenotypes? The traditional mutt and mongrel type and more recently the MFC type (Modern Fila Caramonã). But I do not want any of these new types for my breeding. I do prefer the traditional Fila-CAFIB that already exists and was rescued and preserved by CAFIB more than 4 decades ago. Even in this same article, we found that Fila-CAFIB was breed in the past by the inventor of OFB. Come on, how much confusion has been created for nothing!
Uncle Chico’s Answer: Yes. So it is.
Question # 556: Chico, in the Spanish Civil War there was an anarchist song that said “Luchar! Luchar hasta el fin!”. Which in English means “To struggle! Fight to the end” I think that is what the defenders of PURE-Fila have to keep doing.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: This sentence really applies to FB… In my case fighting since 1974… First against BKC, CBKC and FCI, then soon later against the first cross breeders; then against “filas-mestizos” with Fila pedigree; against the “black-fila” and the “freak-fila”. And now against the Second Great Miscegenation against the Fila Brasileiro. After all, unfortunately there are always someone thinking he will save the FB world…
Question # 557: Uncle Chico, if the OFB are these dogs with mongrel and mutt phenotype I fear even though the Second Great Miscegenation against the Fila Brasileiro is underway?
Uncle Chico’s Answer: So it is
Question # 558: Uncle Chico, after all what is the correct phenotype, mainly relative to the head, described in the OFB Standard. Note the stark difference between these two OFBs heads below. Remembering that the one on the left is 3 years old and the one on the right is already of reproductive age. If it happens in the strict CAFIB there would be Reproved, i.e., disapproval, and one of the two dogs would be excluded from the CAFIB squad. Or both. What the OFB inventor intends to do with non-standard OFB dogs ?
Note: photo on the left posted on the Face of the “fila”-OFB inventor and on the left on the Face Leões de SantAnna.
Uncle Chico’s Answer: I have no idea. And the worst thing is that the inventor of the “fila”-OFB does not answer or clarify anything. Well, CAFIB preserves the traditional Fila Brasileiro of ever, a little over two years ago the OFB appeared, but in practice we now also have MFC = Modern Fila Caramonã. I find all this very confusing and unnecessary.
As you can see above, Uncle Chico has already answered publicly and released more than 550 questions asked by his readers, in addition to many others privately, has already written 760 articles on PURE-Fila and “filas-mestizos”, as he has nothing to hide, works correctly and transparently, presents arguments and since 1974 has maintained his commitment to always defend PURE-Fila. Why is it that the “fila”-OFB inventor does not act this way? Why does he not answer our questions and doubts asked and email to him since Nov/18? Why at this point does he act exactly like the CBKC and the FCI who never had the courage to officially comment on Fila Brasileiro miscegenation ?
– Uncle Chico Newsletter # 279 dated Oct,1st.-2020 (read in English https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/2020/09/26/uncle-chico-newsletter-279-the-new-experience-new-theory-and-new-invention-of-the-new-type-of-dog-called-fila-ofb-completes-2-years-of-launch-without-answering-80-simple-questions/ ) which consolidated more than 80 questions about OFB since Nov/18 not yet answered by the inventor of the “fila”-OFB;

The Modern OFB-Caramonã or the Fila Brasileiro specimens of the old legacy of the Caramonã Kennel? What do you prefer: OFB-Caramonã of today or FB-Caramonã of yesterday?
Thus, I am hoping that he will not continue to omit and make public his explanations of his new invention, new experience and new theory called OFB or OFB-Modern Caramonã.
Best Regards, Chico Peltier.
Note: As I always did with all my emails and articles sent to you since 2009, this article was also sent primarily to those (i)responsible of FCI and CBKC – in the case of Fila Brasileiro. On the other hand, all my articles about OFB are also sent directly to the email of OFB’s inventor, Sobraci and WKU.
