Breed-Ring Mailing List
BREED-RING is a discussion list for and
about canine conformation shows. It attempts to provide meaningful information
about the world of canine conformation showing and breeding with a high
signal-to-noise ratio. Almost anything that may reasonably be seen to have
a relationship to canine conformation may be posted here. This includes,
but is not limited to, breed standards, handling methods, training, breeding
and health issues related to conformation and showing, ring etiquette,
grooming tips, brags, etc.

ShowDogs Mailing List
SHOWDOGS-L is a discussion forum for all
breed conformation issues. Absolutely anything that has anything to do
with conformation, either directly or indirectly, may be discussed here,
such as structure, standards, temperament, health issues, brags, contracts
(selling puppies, breeding, co-ownerships, for example), friendly chat,
etc. This, however, is NOT a place for flame wars, comments about specific
judges, or blatant commercials. For example, litter announcements are welcome,
but attempts to use the list to sell the puppies are not. It is okay to
ASK about specific judges but comments should be sent in private email.
Also, the presence of any breeder on this list is not to be construed as
a recommendation by the list owners or administrators.

Although not as real-time as a mailing list, the Pomeranian Newsletter is sent weekly to a list of subscribers via email. It contains a wealth of information. To subscribe to this newsletter, email Chris Galley firstname.lastname@example.org who is the created and maintains the newsletter.
Newsgroups are public bulletin boards that allow individuals to post questions and responses. Most newsgroups have their own "code of ethics" which you should become familiar with. "Lurking" (just reading) a newsgroup of interest for a few months is suggested so that you can get some idea of the types of questions/responses which are appropriate to post. I recommend the following newsgroup for those interested in purebred dogs. Below is the address. Just click on it and it should open in your "news" reader. Once you have accessed the site, you may need to tell you news reader to subscribe to that particular newsgroup.
Games For Humans

Fetch the stick. Sounds easy enough, but whether you're a mutt or a "dumb, yapping poodle," Drool makes a dog's life difficult. Evil tykes, funny-looking fellows and airport terrorists impede your quest to return a stick to your master in this text-based, choose-your-own-adventure game. Frustrated by your every attempt to be a good dog, you set off through Boston looking for your grail--your master's stick. You'll ride the subway, wander through Harvard Square, hike MIT's Infinite Corridor, wait in line at the Hard Rock Cafe and nose around in Dumpsters. Fail in your search and face that awful evil, your master's disapproval. Succeed and you'll bask in his affection. Either way, you'll get to explore a virtual Boston and play in one of the most imaginative and innovative games we've seen in a long time. This dog's life ain't so bad. (Last Reviewed by BIGSURF .)
