Is it because the field trials are structured specifically for speed? Have we geared the breeding toward the long lean athletic no body fat look with the requirements to win?
While I agree that the show ring in todays world seems to favor overweight dogs, the dogs of past (as pictured in the Westminster thread) were in my opinion the best of both worlds and represented the breed to perfection. Seems to me that we should be able to find dogs with that confirmation that can have loaded pedigree's.
Am I wrong?
