You are mistaken. Rosey has no fault.

If you ask me, Gambit is completely free of faults. But then, I've concluded that I somehow found the canine version of myself, so anything I say should probably be taken with a grain of salt.

If you were to ask other people.....it may be best if you don't ask other people.

Speaking from a breed standards and Conformation judging standpoint all dogs have faults even the Champions and the Grand Champions. Being a Champion is not about being without faults.

Sure. Every dog probably has a number of faults. Sadie is *really* nice, and she is slightly under angulated and has a high tail set. Riot is structurally one of the most solid dogs I know, and she's a little straight in front. I don't think there is a perfect dog structurally or in temperament- one, everyone has different ideals and two, when you breed, you have to do some give and take each time.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

That was the problem I ran into with Pirate. With Tess, I was always pretty aware of what her faults are. She's a quality dog, and a worthy champion, but she does have her faults and I recognize them. How can I make the right breeding choices if I don't know what I'm trying to improve?

With Pirate, I was not being able to find a fault, and it was worrying me. What was I missing?! Which is why I drove down to SoCal with him last year for a show, so I could get his co-breeder to look at him, and find his faults. She didn't have much luck with it either, though. She thought he might need a little more rear angulation, but I really don't agree about that, I think his angulation is fine. Less than his dam, but his dam is a little over-angulated.

Then another breeder, who was there to judge sweeps, looked at Pirate, and also said he was hard to fault. So at least I feel better that I wasn't missing obvious stuff.

Since then, I've decided his tail could be a little bit better, so I feel better that at least I found something.

I believe it fully, that there is no such thing as a dog who's without faults, but as has been said already some show more than others. As well, some aren't actually ever "seen", I've read before about dogs who were said to be the most perfect examples of their breed ever, structure instinct and temperament, but then found they couldn't reproduce, oh well. I do strive to find all my own dogs faults, I know all of Enda's, and I even find them in the altered boys too, just for fun mostly, but educational fun none the less.
