I hope the AKC does go through with banning her from registering more dogs and showing in the AKC trials. This does sound like a puppy mill to me! :mad:

This was posted on the Collie List I'm on (Note-AWCA stands for American Working Collie Assocation):

UPDATE 2/4/03 on the Montana Collies
Statement by AWCA President Jean Levitt
*Permission to crosspost*

The American Kennel Club has suspended the AKC privileges of Athena
Lethcoe-Harman and Jon Harman for the next decade. The 10-year suspension
carries with it a $2000 fine. Kim Eberley, AKC Executive Field Agent,
determined the minimum standard of care and condition required by AKC for
the animals was not met.

According to Toole County Undersheriff Don Hale, Mr. Eberley visited Camp
Collie on Feb. 3 and today, and inspected 54 male and 2 female dogs. When
his investigation was concluded, he had enough evidence to warrant his
findings. Undersheriff Hale escorted Mr. Eberley to the truck this

The Harmans have the right to appeal the suspension at a legal hearing, and
to be legally represented, continued Undersheriff Hale.

A new trial date has not been set. A reminder: Undersheriff Don Hale
requests that only phonecalls, emails and faxes that will enhance the
prosecutorial efforts be sent. I will keep you informed.
