Uncle Chico Newsletter # 263
Awaiting clarification from SOBRACI if this Brazilian Dog Notary/Registry Club has already issued or intends to issue pedigrees of OFB for puppies born from the crossbreeding of a Breed (Fila Brasileiro) with new dog type (OFB).
Crossing FB with OFB, a OFB is born ?
Crossbreeding Duck with Goose, a Duck is born?
PLEASE SEE AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE SPECIAL NOTE ON A VERY CURIOUS EMAIL RECEIVED FROM SOBRACI POSTED AFTER THE END OF THIS ARTICLE BUT EVEN SO WAS QUICKLY COMMENTED BY UNCLE CHICO.
Note: this article of mine was first sent to SOBRACI, Word Kennel Union (WKU) – based in Ukraine, Mercosur(South America) Canine Federation (FECAM) and the Argentine Dog Association (ACA), as I understand these three dog entities are working together. Immediately after this send, as I always do since the release of my Open Letter from London dated Aug, 3rd.-1978 and especially after the launch of my website in 2009, this article will be sent to CBKC and FCI.
My dear Fila Brasileiro (FB) and CAFIB friends,
Since one person has insistently announced on his Facebook litters that I understand will be offered for sale, possibly with pedigree issued by SOBRACI, coming from the crossbreeding (*) of dogs of the Breed FB with a new dogs of type, as you can see below:
(*) For the functional illiterate I inform that mating occurs when it is done between animals of the same breed, while crossbreeding occurs between different breeds, giving birth to crossbred or mestizos animals.
Continuing, I inform you that on Sep, 2nd.-2019 Joaquim Liberato Barroso (Quinzinho) and Uncle Chico sent two emails to SOBRACI asking if this new registry/notary Brazilian club of dogs that performs similar function in Brazil as CBKC-FCI has already issued or will issue pedigrees for a litter that comes from crossbreeding of a different breed (FB) with a new type of dog (OFB), as SOBRACIs by-laws and Statutes define its work as being solely for breeding and registering purebred dogs. And in the case questioned, this litter was announced above as coming from the crossbreeding of Fila Brasileiro with OFB.
Uncle Chico was never answered, but on Sep. 18th.-2019 Quinzinho received an email stating that an answer would be given by the president of SOBRACI and posted on his website.
So last weekend Uncle Chico browsed the SOBRACI website and although I didn’t see any response from the president, I noted that the photo that represents the OFB for this club is actually not a dog of the new type OFB (**) but of the well-known Fila Brasileiro called Marta. Eventually this picture, due to the poor quality and the elapsed time, may be from Marta’s partner, the also very well-known FB named Lord. This photo of Marta or Lord is well known to CAFIB since it was taken on one of the first expeditions made in the south of Minas Gerais, at the very beginning of CAFIB, visiting the breeder and precursor of FB called Zé Gomes de Varginha, South of Minas Gearais.
I received years ago this and other photos from the start of CAFIB from our founder and director Airton Campbell as I began my work which resulted in the launch of my website ( http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/ — see a lot of articles in English in http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/17.html and in http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/1-eng2.html ) which has around 1,000 scanned documents from publications and documents dating from 1942 and over 1,000 photos. And it is undoubtedly one of the largest dog libraries in the world.
See below photos of the SOBRACI website, stating what I say here:
Take a look at the same picture of Marta / Lord as of her partner Lord from the CAFIB archives:
Now look at the homogeneity between Marta / Lord (above left photo) and Lord (above right photo) and today`s CAFIB- Filas below, noting that the shirt worn by Zé Gomes on the day these photos were taken is exactly the same. Below left is a photo of Joia de Aiuruoca and on the right is a photo of Tirano do Alto Quatis, both from CAFIB:
My dear friends, now check below and ask yourself, suggesting that SOBRACIs President, Mr. Osmir de Moraes Bastos, urgently do the same so as not to risk its club becoming demoralized as well as the CBKC regarding the FB record, if the photos of the new typo of dog named OFB below, respectively Caramonã Bronco (left) and Canário JC (right), are similar to FBs Marta and Lord or if they look more like crossbreed dogs coming from crosses of different breeds, i.e., mongrels and mutts who are living scattered and on any Brazilian farm and city, remembering that Brazil is a country almost so large than USA and Canada ?
My dear friends, I received an email from Mr. Matheus Bastos after the above article, who does not report his role at SOBRACI, but in good faith I receive it, understanding that he did so at the request of its president, Mr. Osmir de Moraes Bastos and, I briefly comment such email, as it will be soon dissected in depth. But first I inform you that I could only read it minutes ago, by chance, rolling the cursor down, since Mr. Matheus sent this email below and at the end of my last article. That is, narrowly this email did not go to the trash.
Unfortunately I understand that this email did not explain what I have been arguing against inventing the new type dog OFB since last November, let alone the questions reiterated in my last article and this one:
– Is SOBRACI issuing OFB pedigrees to puppies resulting from crossbreeding from the Breed Fila Brasileiro and a new type dog called OFB or not?
– Does the SOBRACI and WKU Statute allow this registries clubs to issue pedigree for dogs resulting from the crossbreeding of two different breeds / types or not?
– From the crossbreeding of two different breeds / types is born a crossbreed dog or a purebred dog?
Mr. Osmir de Moraes Bastos, politely and respectfully, I reiterate my question in the subtitle of this article: crossing FB with OFB, a OFB is born ? Crossing Duck with Goose, a Duck is born?
In conclusion, a big curious misconception practiced by SOBRACI:
Mr. Matheus informs us that the OFB “… is not about breeding a new breed, but about Fila Brasileiro rescue work …”. But, interestingly, the SOBRACI website itself understands that they are two different breeds (types), as it presents the FB as one breed and OFB as another breed. And even illustrates them with different photo dogs. See what I state and understand below:
That is, based on the SOBRACI website photographed and made available above, this club has eventually issued or will issue pedigrees for dogs born from two different breeds !!!
This is for crossbreeds or mestizos dogs !!!
Moreover, in this same email, the inventor of the new type OFB tries to justify himself by categorically affirming and even contradicting the knowledge of the notary called SOBRACI that issues the pedigrees of OFB: “… that people understand the differences between the two breeds... ”
After all, SOBRACI, what dog is this beeing registering ??? !!! Are they two or a single breed / type ?
Such question above is very simple and must be answered by SOBRACI and WKU urgently !!!
I hope that SOBRACI and its president will soon realize the confusion created in Brazilian cynophilia and especially in the FB by the OFB very new invention and fabrication, and also,
the big puzzling which SOBRACI and WKU got into for being naively allowed themselves to be use by the OFB inventor, with his new super slippery and shakydog thesis that suggests many different interpretations, bus MISCIGENATION…
By the way, Mr. Osmir de Moraes Bastos, do you really believe in the Brazilian aboriginal dog ??? !!!
In addition, await soon the dissection and autopsy of the email received from Mr. Matheus Bastos.
Finally: I am ready to post in full on my blog the email received from Mr. Matheus Bastos, provided that the SOBRACI testify
such Mr. Bastos email, received with so many non-sense phrases and post my articles against the new OFB type that I send and
post in my blog from Nov /19 on ( https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/ ) before I received this email from SOBRACI.
Best regards, Chico Peltier.
