    Too bad HBO didn't show that....because an awful lot of it is total BS and spin. Showing that footage would not have helped AKC's position.

    Wherever there is competition with subjective judging, there will be those who try to cheat. Some venues are easier than others.

    Becky, it's great that you were able to have a good conversation with the trainer. :)

    However, I would say that condition is a daily check, not every week or two. It's a lot harder to put weight...

    Agreed. ;) Evidently that information is unimportant? ;)

    Sometimes the need for argument and negativity, masked as an attempt at knowledge, overcomes common sense and respect.
