    Default Little Known Fact- Lean Mac

    Lean Mac's great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was an FC named TIMBER TOWN CLANSMAN.
    What its prominence suggest, and what all science confirms is that the dog is a creature of the nose- A. Horowitz.

    It would be more troubling if the dog was named "Klansman" not "Clansman"
    Competition does not build character - It reveals it.

    There are lots of dogs from the past that have "interesting" names.
    Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!

    In the 1930s and 1940s I am sure it wasn’t give a second thought...prolly very well accepted in that era. Less concerning when you consider the time period…history is what it is

    Where did you find that information and can you post the link to the pedigree?

    Patrick is right and the field dogs wasn't the only venue that were politically incorrect. There was a bench CH the Goose Hunter's Nigger Boy and in the field was the 1938 winner of the Field and Stream trophy Nigger of Barrington. Before 1941 the winner of the trophy was the unofficial National Champion. More recently a national winners gundog was called, Ghetto.

    A clan is a group of people united by kinship and descent, which is defined by perceived descent from a common ancestor.


    There are no racial slurs in the name TIMBER TOWN CLANSMAN. Now the ones Richard put up are racial and shameful part of US history.

    Absolutely correct. On the other hand, back in the 1970s when I was showing and field trialing German shorthairs, I knew a guy with a solid liver shorthair named "Spade." Thank God we are past those days. (of course, nowadays, I know a guy whose Chessie's call name is Turd. Good grief.

    Maybe I am naive, but I would have just guessed spade to have been referring to the suit of card not the slur.

    my old state legislator Ken Cory from calif. used to have a FC named Rodney's ML Coon( as in martin luther) and Ken,(god rest his soul) was from a very conservative district in So Cal. Ken rose to the office of the state contoller and was once a gubernatorial candidate. he was a very effective legislator and a darn nice guy.

    If I didn't know the owner I might agree with you. I knew the owner and I know exactly why he named the dog that because he told me.
