Welcome Back in the Future, Britons!

We woke up this morning to the news that the Britons voted for the UK to leave the EU.

This is not good news, I believe. Still, it is too soon to say for real that the outcome will be bad. There will be uncertainty about what will happen for a while, but it is not the end of the EU, of the UK, or anything similar.

The Kennel Club in England is not a member of the international kennel federation FCI. Still, there is cooperation and mutual recognition of dogs, breed standards, and dog show results. There will be cooperation between the EU members and the UK in the future, it is just that it will look different. Perhaps it will be a little more paperwork et cetera in the cooperation, but there will never be inpenetrable walls.

If the Britons want to return to the EU in the future, I would wish them a warm welcome back.
