    Yeah, you wouldn't want too many of those, or the English Flabrador crowd will cry foul and



    want to "lump" them with the bully whippet group.

    I agree with you Ed, but since the general public doesnt get to see many FC's much less watch one work although they do get to see what was shown at Westminister. Therefore the uninformed masses believe that is the correct look and wieght for a labrador. That is promoting obesity not only in dogs but people.

    Scout SSingles.jpgYes I'm prejudiced, but this is how I think they should be proportioned; especially if this guy had a double coat.

I just sent a litter of pups out sired by a QAA from a very nice field pedigree, and have to tell you, it was a very nice litter structurally and VERY birdy!!!!

    There were 6 or 7 with Conformation Certificates competing in the National Amateur last year. Saw the list in FT News.

    I was thinking about changing my signature line. Think I'll hang on to it a while longer.....-Paul

    I agree with Sharon. That Golden was nice and not with too much coat and bone. I also thought the Irish Water Spaniel was lovely. Was glad to see that the Chessie judge found two out of the three dogs with working titles to give Select and a JAM too.

    I was a little disappointed in the lack of working titles on the Tollers, but was informed that at least a few did have <some> working titles, but were only allowed to include AKC titles for this show. Several had HRC or CKC titles.

    I wouldn't have wanted to hunt with some of the coats in that ring either....

    The breed winner is a lovely dog - very athletic and moderate in coat - he at least has a WC.
