    I couldn't believe the looks of the lab. There is no way she could handle field work. The only thing we may agree on, though, is that she was a nice shade of black.

    OK- Let's stop dissing the fat boys. I will say that porker's BMI is off the chart.

    Pretty sure that I can outrun that beer keg with legs and as a general rule the only thing I can outrun depends on chlorophyll for sustenance.

    I thought the Golden was very nice. Moderate coat, and in lovely weight. So nice to not see a big poofball carrying 20 extra pounds!

    For once big game houndsmen/women actually get something right bless their redneck a$$ ........ papers, looks, some book that describes what a dog should look like and act like don't catch bears and lions. Dogs that function do.

    And that dog on TV is butcher ready. Dog Shows have ruined more working breeds than any backyard breeder ever has..... sorry pet peeve ... pun intended ��

    Well ... she does have a pretty face. Clearly weight is not an issue in this beauty contest
