WANT Divina!
Seriously, I'm going to steal her, she's adorable!

All those dogs looked amazing!!! Great pics!

Something I've always wondered, can those dogs walk on a loose leash down the street, or are they mainly trained to lay into the collar to show off their muscles. Sorry if it's an ignorant question.

I'm sure they can all walk fine on leash. But, something I was reminded of yesterday, is just HOW strong dog aggression IS in APBTs.

They were behaved in the ring, for the most part, but yes, there were quite a few hissy fits because other dogs were present.
And that's ok in ADBA. You're expected, obviously, to have control of your dog, but there is barking, and lunging to some degree on the way in and out of the ring.
Only one dog fight (or was it two?) happened yesterday. And they were not intentional, obviously. Just a couple of owners whose dogs got too close to each other.

But, yes, 99% of owners were walking around with break sticks in their back pockets yesterday.
It's part of the breed.

Thanks! It was my pleasure to be able to photograph and be in the presence of such beautiful dogs who were loving on EVERY human they could!
Tails waggin, bully smiles, bully kisses were VERY common yesterday. And I LOVED IT ALL.


PWCorgi,
uh, I just re-read my last reply, and I don't know if it sounds snotty or not, but I didn't intend it that way. It was more of a stunner to me because, honestly, I didn't know if I'd EVER see or meet another dog who could be as dog aggressive as Ella.

And I did. hahahahaha. I met an ENTIRE SHOW FULL.
But the dogs were managed by their owners. No one stressed out over their dogs being dog aggressive, it was just a normal occurrence.

That second dog kind of looks like Terra.

You know Melissa? How?
She cracks me up.

And, yes, the second dog kind of, sort of looks a little like Terra.
I thought "Hm...matrix, perhaps?" because of the eyes.

But, shh...Terra's prettier!

I know Miss from another forum that we used to go to. I've met her too. She is hilarious in person.
