Default Anyone watching Westminster Dog Show?

I just went on their web site where you can view videos for most of the different breeds as they were judged. The videos take awhile for them to post on each dog.

Here's the web site: http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org...results/breed/

I will be watching tonight for the Anatolian Shepherd. Max's breeder has an entry.

I love to watch. I especially liked the Parenese, Bernese Montain Dog, Greater Swiss mountain Dog and Neo Mastiff (love them chops!)

I also enjoyed the Glen Terrier, Norfolk Terrier and of course the West Highland. =)

You know the Pyrenees won the working dog group last night. It was so beautiful!!!! The Pekinese won the toy group. I am not usually a huge fan of the way they look but it was so fun to look at it so it was cute in it's own way, I couldn't help but smile when I looked at it. It reminded me of Gizmo on Gremlins!!!!!!

I just looked and saw Stumpy won for the Sussex Spaniel. I saw him win at another show and just fell in love with the breed.

UGH! Breeding/showing for conformation. It makes me sick. Especially in the herding and working group. The "work" has been bred out of those poor dogs. Todays collie is as much of a "herder" as a poodle. As are many others.

Gotta say I have to agree with you, Caseyolee. Recognition by the AKC has been the death of a too many great breeds. I'm afraid it's going to spell disaster for the Neo; everyone is just going gaga over these great beasts, and you know where that's going to lead . . . overbreeding, inappropriate owners, temperament problems, ad nauseum.

I have high hopes that the AKC will never recognize the Fila. For one thing, there are too many disagreements on standards; for another, the Fila temperament- the proper Fila ojeriza - is such that judges are not necessarily expected to touch the dogs during examination, lol!

I hate how the Golden Retrievers now have shorter legs, and the way their beautiful tails are trimmed at the tip. !!!

I have to say I was very pleased at the the comments made about the pits on that show. It was nice to hear. The announcers told everyone that those breeds sometimes get bad raps when they fall into the wrong hands. They said "There is no such thing as a bad dog, just bad owners". I think it was pretty cool of them to slip that information out there....
