“What Is A Title Really?"

Not just a brag, not just a stepping stone to a higher
Title, not just an adjunct to competitive scores.

 A Title is a tribute to the dog that bears it, a way to
 honor the dog, an ultimate memorial. It will remain in the record
 and in the memory for about as long as anything in this world can
remain. Few humans will do as well or better in that regard. And
though the dog himself doesn't know or care that his achievements have
been noted, a Title says many things in the world of humans, where
such things count.

 A Title says your dog was intelligent, and adaptable,
 and good-natured. It says that your dog loved you enough to
 do the things that please you, however crazy they may have sometimes

 And a Title says that
 you loved your dog, that you loved to spend time with
 him because he was a good dog, and that you believed in him enough to
 give him yet another chance when he failed, and that in the end your
faith was justified.

A Title proves that your dog inspired you to have the
 special relationship enjoyed
 by so few; that in a world of disposable creatures, this
 dog with a Title was greatly loved, and loved greatly in return.
 And when that dear short life is over, the Title remains as a memorial
 of the finest kind, the best you can give to a deserving friend,
 volumes of praise in one small set of initials before or after the name.

A Title is nothing less than love and respect, given and
 received permanently.
