Once upon a time, the entire Maine Coon breed was denied the right to compete, to gain titles and to be valued as a pedigreed “purebred” on the judging bench. Three times, the application was rejected, yet the breeders who valued the Maine Coon returned again and again. Why was Championship so important?
Each one of those breeders had their own personal reason for working so hard to ensure the future of the breed they loved. For those who adore the symmetry and grace of a well-turned polypaw on a beautiful Maine Coon, it is no different.
