    Somebody came out and said there was a derby where Bill Hillman and Shadow stepped on every Mark in clearly were were head and shoulders above every dog, but Shadow creeped a bit in a few of the series
    They went over to another series and announced to all that shadow had clearly won

    Lo and behold Shadow was not given the blue he was given the red ribbon.


    BTW. The apparently know-nothing about the rules judges were none other than Jackie Mertens and Ernie Hawkins

    always possible the original poster deleted the thread.
    The way I look at it, every dog is an opportunity to be a better trainer, and every day is a new day to be a better trainer to the same dog we trained yesterday.

    Just like the other Derby when the "winner" was taken down by know-nothing stewards for not having put a paw, er, hoof wrong...

    There was no mention of a handle. The poster said Shadow creeped on a few of the marks.
