ASC Board: President-Ed Piner, Jean Peterson, Hugh Spacht, Al Davies, Jeanne Meister, Louise Milner, Muriel Barber, William Burson, Richard Duding, Edna Pierce, Ruth Baumgartner, William Brice, Billie Ballantine (now Hayes), Jo Friesen. Standard Committee Chairman-Tom O’Neal. 1983 Ballot
Ballot* to add sable to the ASCOB variety. Please look carefully at the wording on this ballot :
"The Board of Directors of the American Spaniel Club has received a recommendation from the Standard Committee of the American Spaniel Club strongly recommending that the Sable color cocker spaniel be included within the ASCOB variety. By the term “Sable” we are referring to some shade of buff or red with black tipping.
This ballot then went on to offer YES to add sable to the ASCOB variety or NO to make sable a disqualification in the ASCOB variety.
"In view of the inconclusive vote on the Sable as well as the confusion which seemingly exists, I recommend we, the board, review all letters, member comments and other related information now available for the purpose of determining how a genetic study if feasible should be pursued."
This motion was unanimously passed by the Board. "As there were not a two-thirds majority vote the ballots were inconclusive in accordance with our by-laws, Article VII-Section 2."
I have been unable to find evidence that any genetic study was commissioned by the Board at this time.
