    Thanks for the vote of confidence regarding Orijen and it's sister food, Acana. For clarification, it's not my pup with the lameness issue, but runninscared's pup.

    I believe they are showing what show breeders refer to as "substance". It's considered an asset for water dogs (and their handlers) as it provides extra buoyancy when in the water.

    Kim,

    I don't have any delusions of changing the judging of Labradors competing in conformation shows or in field trials. It's their game, as you state so well. They may do as they wish.
