Uncle Chico Newsletter # 281
Smart question: Do you think Minas Gerais farmers would call Cabeçudo (Big Head) a dog with a small, light, thin and triangular head ?
Do not miss: 2nd chapter of the “Visual Standard for Fila Brasileiro and Other Histories”
My dear Fila Brasileiro (FB) and CAFIB friends,
- My dear readers, do you really think that the wisdom of the Minas Gerais farmers would for decades call the type of dog below Cabeçudo (Big Head)?
My dear friends, just received from a group of friends from Minas Gerais, which are FB breeders accustomed to The True FB for over 50 years:
“Uncle Chico, no breeder from the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais — cradle of FB –, would call this dog above Cabeçudo (Big Head ). Never. The reasoning is very simple: looking the OFB dog above, no one would call him Cabeçudo (Big Head), they could call him Boiadeiro (Cattle Dog), Onceiro (Tiger Hunt Dog ) or Cabecinha (Small Head) , but never Cabeçudo because their head are small, light, thin and triangular”.
- Don’t miss: it has already been posted in English on the CAFIB website in English (http://www.cafibbrasil.com/leitor_not/items/padrao-visual-cap2-en.html ) the 2nd chapter of the “Visual Standard for the Fila Brasileiro and Other Histories”. An exceptional article telling the history of CAFIB and the about rescue from extinction of Pure Fila, starring and written by Airton Campbell, Américo Cardoso and Luiz Antonio Maciel.
Affectionate hugs to all.
Including the OFB Inventor.
Chico Peltier – Father of CAFIB.
