That's why I asked if you meant tucked when you said low I can't really comment on the entry because I can't get the videos to work for me. I missed all the Belgians in group last night too. Gay tails are fairly common in the Belgians, Jagger is very proud of his

We watched it at work and while my coworker (with a show/French line mal) and I disagreed on excessive substance being ideal we both agreed that many looked to lead towards fear as opposed to caution. We weren't impressed with the feet and the fronts but they had some great rears and heads. There was one old tank of a male that we liked a lot, he was almost a vet and I think he may have won male, I would have to double check though, we were popping in and out of daytraining to watch it on the computer.

I really liked the aussie bitch that went BOB, and of course I was ecstatic that Chyna took breed in GSDs.

I wasn't impressed with the GSDs at all. Herding breed people, herding breed. No way those dogs could herd well. Plus, the flat feet and low loose pasterns we're atrocious. Not to mention the way they moved. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Granted I think 9 of the 10 dogs were from the same breeder
One dog was tailed. It was a rough faced fawn, I can't recall the number. I think there were at least three with natural ears. 2 smooth faced. I really loved the first one- so bouncy and full of it.

Chyna picked up a herding title last fall, and for eight I think she's in pretty great shape. Then again maybe I'm biased because she's currently napping downstairs. To each their own I suppose, I'm happy she was pulled in group as well, a great retirement show for her.

I was watching it on a very tiny screen with poor resolution and it was stopping and starting to boot so didn't even want to guess on ears . I'll have to look again once the show is over and (hopefully) the streaming video actually streams instead of hiccups.

I know the breeder of the Mastiff BOB winner. Fantastic breeder, awesome dogs, but that particular one was sadly grossly overweight.

Not a huge fan of the Sibe's breeder, but at the very least they produce moderate dogs, so I'm not too torn up about the results.

I didn't catch the tailed dog until pretty late in the breed judging. Must've had it down for quite a bit of it.

I've been watching...I quite like that Foxhound that won group. Drool. The ACD wasn't too bad this year, though my opinion of a 'nice' ACD is different from the standard.

I must be getting really critical in my old age .. the more I watch conformation events, the more bothered I am by them. I won't be a total downer in this thread though (maybe we need a conformation thread).
