That was the most beautiful coon-hound in the hunting group have ever seen and the guy showing the longhaired chi I hope got sh__ for the way he was jerking its neck everytime he changed direction, talk about collapsing trachae.

Cordmaker (Conrad, I do believe) the Puli was interesting. First time a dog has ever one back-to-back, in a group result

BTW t.pettet; thank you very much for posting this thread! :clap: With all the Olympic hype, I probably would have forgotten about the show! :confused: Thank dawg for remotes! :D

OMG Frenchy!!! The Great Dane looks like Marmaduke and is from Thunder Bay, Ontario!!!

The Pyrenees was beautiful but he had brown on his ears? :shrug:

They're still going through the working group.....

Marmaduke was a Great Dane in his own comic strip. :crazy:

Then he went on to hit the big screen with Owen Wilson. :thumbs up

Unfortunately, the Dane and Pyrenees didn't make it. They're just finishing up Terriers and then BIS.

Congrats, ScottieDog! :highfive: :D

I always worry about the BIS breeds, too :o...always that danger of a fad that'll bring out the puppy mills...especially for the small breeds :frustrated:

Many do, they can also come with gray highlights, not just on their ears but body too.

Here is a pic of a couple of pups from the AKC website:

Thanks Hazel,

What worries me is that the reputable breeders have very few litters and have long waiting lists. People want instant gratification and don't want to wait to get a dog. Scotties have some very bad health nasties--many of which can be eliminated with proper health and genetic screenings. Scotties are not easily found in shelters (thank goodness) and rescues have some very strict rules for adoption. I know, I get denied.:loser: (No fence--my yard floods; while I don't agree with this policy, I can respect the rules.)

People have to know that the cute, prancing black dog in the show ring last night is not a docile lap dog. This is a pure piss and vinegar fireball of a dog. My male had a mouth that would rival a German Shepard's. And, your Scottie will not look like that Scottie. Trust me, mine doesn't--although she is a beautiful girl.:lovestruck:

So for all the people who are thinking that they want a Scottie, here is some advice from a 3-time, nearly 15-year Scottie owner--You do not want a Scottie. Ok.:thumbs up

Hazel , there was a new breed at the show (well not only one but ...) the Red and White Setter :

Frenchy
February 17th, 2010, 10:59 AM
here's a better pic , I didn't even know about red and white setters :confused: looks same as brittany spaniel to me :shrug:

Toy poodle won for the toy group, the Havanese was shown with the corded coat(ugh) and the pom looked like his rear end was missing alot of coat. The Tibetan Mastiff was gorgeous and the scottie Sadie looked like she was used to getting picked-up and was standing on her hind legs pawing at her handler's legs which is nice that she's not stuck in a kennel all the time but rather a house dog.

Beautiful dogs! I've heard of them before, Frenchy. I think they're an older style Irish setter--if you picture the dogs you posted as solid red, you'll see the similarity to the more common red Irish setter. Brittanys are not typically that leggy.
