|My highlight....and I admit that in the absence of a once-in-a-lifetime Man O'War type greatness I am always about the underdog....was the OES, who is just a baby and not even a finished champion yet, coming in against veteran specials in the most intimidating/overwhelming venue and winning. The judge had a rather overt reaction.
The Affenpinsher who won Toy, FIY, is a masterful show dog who has done a crazy amount of winning. Should she win breed, favored is the Doberman Fifi, who really could have won last year....she gave a winning turn, and is likely to do so again. Tiller's half sister is showing today....she is Sofia should she make it through breed. Major winners in the sport, the German Wirehaired Pointer and the black Am Cocker, are in.....both dangerous....as is the Wirehaired Fox, who is in and the top show dog in the country right now. A Wirehaired Fox at Westminster is a VERY dangerous dog in the BIS ring.
FYI....Cappy could not show this year in GSDs because Jimmy Moses was judging. He put that BC up, who I thought had a nicer profile than those in years past. Very happy to see him apply himself as a judge. The winning bitch GSD is eight. Less extreme dogs are doing well at specialities, and maybe in time that catches up. Cappy is a nice dog.
I never try to pick....I just like certain dogs. I absolutely loved the Bouvier. Amazing topline and movement. She was my ogle for last night , and like the OES not even finished yet. I love that they have classes back at Westminster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
