hi,

they're not as defined into working and showing as other breeds.  i think there is a coat type difference in pictures the show winners always look more finely feathered than bev's.

The working clumber is smaller and more agile that the show type, they can weigh in at 24kg- think of SteveL's Jago- he is working type, the show weigh in at about 33kg.

I think Ami is show, and Cubert is half and half, but Bev will correct if am wrong

hi,

ami is a showdog - she got erm .... "retired" for disgreeing with male judges  :nono: norty ami

cubert being "half and half" reminds me of the bit in harry potter when seamus says "i'm half and half me dads a muggle an me mams a witch wasnt half a nasty shock when he found out" (oh and yep i think the wee boy must be part show lines as the breeder didnt dock).

Ta Claire, couldnt quite remember if Ami was full show or half and half. :)

Does sound like that doesnt it!  :laugh: :laugh:

Cubert is half and half, his dad is a sealumber, they are show type, his mum is a worker.

Just based on how he's looking, he would be my first pick.

now, now  :whatever:

i think it's probably fairly equal between men and women not respecting dogs...

the thing with some men is they need a tough dog just so they can show that they're tougher than a tough dog.......I find these men are usually short.  :yes:

ami was a wee girlie pup...had already got her ticket...think anydog that got a thwack in the mouth from a sporran would prob bite it back....it was just in the wrong place at the time...judge was very understanding...she still won  :D :D

any clumber will work...the working line bred ones are small and lighter boned and footed is all...if i wanted that in a dog i would get another springer..i like the solidness (mind and body), the focus and the steadyness of the non working lines that do work...prefer the look too...the only one i have had that was 3/4 work lines was holliesocks...
