|I did pretty well on my picks except for the toys. I only root for the Iggie there no matter what, lol. In the hounds I picked the Fox Hound (he was a favorite to win, anyway) and the Otterhound, although I liked the Bluetick -- sentimental favorite for me. I love sighthounds, but really wasn't impressed with them this year.
I just knew that Bichon was going to take the Non-Sporting group. He was a flashy little dog! I really need to learn more about gaits -- I can't tell the proper gait on a Frenchie at all! The Standard Poodle was marvelous!
I always enjoy the Herding group! Swagger, the OES, was an obvious pick when he lived up to his name. I also liked the Beaceron and the Canaan. But I liked the Mal and the Briard -- they are just so cute with their ears. I have absolutely no idea how to evaluate a Puli.
So my picks were 6 of one, half dozen of another!
How did you all do?
Looking forward to the Sporting Group, my favorite tonight. And of course the Golden won't win, but I will root for his cousins and the spaniels too, and the Setters. I do like dogs with coat, but there was a fantastic Weim last year, soooo can't be too biased.
I also enjoy the Working group.
Promises to be a good night.
And if responsible, ethical breeders were the only ones breeding, we would not have a dog overpopulation problem. The problem is not shelter dogs, either, it's getting shelter dogs to the people who want them.
Spoken as someone with a breeder dog, 3 rescues, and planning on another breeder pup. And I have no guilt at all about getting a new dog from a responsible breeder, they are there to breed healthy dogs and better dogs.
