    Anybody watch last night? I caught the re-run this morn and saw some of the non-sporting and the herding breeds. I believe that in both those groups there were dogs in the arena who were actually working dogs that lived on farms or ranches and did what they were bread to do in their "real lives", and they looked fit and capable to me.

    I am afraid to look at it. I am appalled at seeing German Shepherd Dogs that look like they are in pain and are dragging their rear ends around the ring. It's no wonder NYPD buys only from German breeders.

    I would love to hear EdA comment on that.

    The yellow Lab looked like an obese dwarf. Hard to look at. I wonder how many other breeds (besides German Shepards) I am not so familiar with have been bred to a conformation so far from what natural?

    Another toy group win kind of blew the ending for me. I loved the fox hound.
