It's always interesting when we're first in for the 24's so I'm at the gate with a bunch of 20s (not counting Preferred dogs) and my FCR's the same height or shorter than a lot of them...granted her measurement is also questionable (but high...she was measured as an overly excited bouncy pup, imagine that...) but I don't think she's any shorter than 22" even...which is the tallest allowed 20" jumping height...
Good point. I can also think of a few non-BCs I know with questionable measurements... =P

A judge stopped the trial once because he wanted to make sure Auggie was running the correct height. Not because he thought he was too tall... because he thought he was too SMALL. He thought they had screwed up the run order. *sigh* No, that's actually what he measured into...
Luckily they brought back challenging the height card, but you can only do it once now. Thankfully, both of Auggie's challenge measurements were right at 14", so we got a new height card and I was able to drop him down.

Supposedly if people complain the judge can call for a measurement on a dog, but I've never actually heard of that happening.
