Dobequest

I just checked Bacchus' dobequest page and someone changed his GRACH to GRCH. Now it's wrong. I know the page needs some serious updating but I don't understand someone going in and for some unknown reason make it wrong.

At some point I'd like to update and correct some things but I don't understand this last change at all......

That is one of the unfortunate pit falls of dobequest. There is group of volunteers who work on the database and make changes from time to time in an attempt to clean it up, fix mistakes, update etc. I don't know if that is the case here but it wouldn't surprise me if some didn't understand what the GRACH meant, and assumed it was supposed to be a GRCH (Grand Champion). You can view the edit history to see who made the changes and when.

If you want I will update Bacchus' record right now, just let me know what you want changed.

I had problems a while back after I spent hours putting in pedigree info for a whole kennel of dogs when someone went back and corrected the kennel name on the dogs. They were not all exactly the same (according to AKC) and I checked each dog's registered name with the AKC before putting them in dobequest. Very frustrating to have to go back and change it to the actual registered name again.

Oh, thank you thank you thank you!!!

Here goes.....

His call name is Bacchus.....they have it misspelled.

He is a GRACH not GRCH.

He is missing 5 akc titles. He has a BN now and the akc agility titles should be.....MX, MXJ, AXP. AJP.

Again, thank you for your help.

what is a GRACH? An AKC Grand Champion is normally shown as "GCh" or sometimes "GRCH"

As a Dobequest volunteer when new info is received a volunteer goes in and tries to correct everything so it is uniform and the same. That is probably why it was changed. Each month we get a list of things that need to be added and sometimes we check and someone has already entered it. They do like everything to be uniform and correct.

It is one of the mos prefessional organized group of volunteers - Most of the challenges is when everyone goes in and edits their own stuff and don't know how it should be liste. EX The name should not be all caps. We correct that when we go in.

I didn't know how all that was done. That has got to be one daunting job.

Most people would not know what that is, so I would put "UKC" in front of it to clarify it. That would help.

You'd think it would be UGRACH like their UCD, UCDX, URO1, URO2, etc.

You're correct. I just looked at his title certificate for ukc and it has it as UGRACH.

Pretty bad, he gets a title and I can't get it right!!

Evidently the ukc titles go on the front of the dog's name and the akc titles go on the back end. There are exceptions, though.
