Buford Joma,
I'm not sure who you would like to contact. I started this thread (capitalization of dog breeds) last year. There are many contributers. Cheers.

Thanks, Chas.
I am working on copy for a club that holds shows and competitions for the bulldog breed. I think I will use the "bulldog" version of the word. It seems awkward to have the word capitalized throughout the document.
Thanks again.

I've heard a few people use 'Ideal' and never use the word 'Idea.' So, it must be regional ( I live in the South.)
I was wondering what the correct usage was, but something really threw me for a loop:
There is a line of feminine hygiene products that used to have the name 'Dry Idea' as the brand name.
Now I am seeing the same product being marketed as 'Dry Ideal.'
I thought 'Dry Ideal' sounded really weird for such an item and I wonder what prompted their marketing department to change it.
