First and foremost I would like to thank long time Chowist , Cathy Clapp,for her permission to reprint this priceless contribution in the ChowTales Archive. Cathy scanned this AKC Article, written by highly regarded chow authority Wallace MacMonnies detailing the alterations to our American chow standard from the original 1906 Chow Standard to this new 1925 version. The PDF version has +/- symbols to change the text size or you can click these photos below to enlarge as well. Some of Mr MacMonnies personal notations on the ideal chow are as relevant today as they were in 1925….a fascinating read!!!
I do my best to be as accurate as possible in my research, however many times written history finds a way to "morph" over time. I love your comments and appreciate all feedback, additions and corrections my readers have to offer to help make this a well rounded and accurate archive.
