    I only got a glimps of the lab and after last year that was enough. I really liked the American fox hound and the wire haired pointer. Thought the little terrier was nice too. I would really like to see some of the coated dogs shaved down so you could get a good look at their structure. Nothing could be hidden on the 3 I mentioned.

    I loved it, I even found myself rooting for Banana Joe in the end.

    Because they are so stinking cute--little dog with big attitude and happy happy personality~~

    by the time you get to that level--everyone has great structure and type--so the ATTITUDE makes the dog a winner.

    Did I mention how cute they are??!!

    Kudos to the Russell Terrier--its first time at Westminster and it gets a group 4--I just love the little Russells.

    Is the dog not suppose to be judge against the "Breed" standard? If so how does and why would attitude play any part in the results?

    AGAIN--when they get to this level they all meet standard and type. You don't get a dog into the BIS that is sub-standard. Sooooooooooo--what is going to catch the judges eye??? The ho-hum prance around the ring "I'm a nice dog." or the "BAADDA-BING HERE I AM WORLD!!!" dog??

    JUNK?! --- wow. nice.

    It is what it is.

    Too bad there is such a separation within many breeds.
    Why this has happened to some breeds and not others is the real question that should be asked.
    Labrador Retriever, a 20g & grouse...is there a better combination?

    I enjoyed it- Banana Joe was nice- moved very well and had that attitude.
    I thought the niceste dog on the BIS ring was the Port Water Dog-
    Would have loved for the GWP to take it but has that ever happened? Sort of like a lab taking BIS, not gonna happen because theyre not flashy enough. Nice group though-

    I'm glad the labs never take BIS, there hasn't been a good looking one at Westminster for decades
