Congrats Suz. Both look fantastic :-* Well done xx
Happy Birthday Nacho! Hope you’ve had a fab day xxx
Totally agree with you Sweetypye.
I think most things look very different in person than they do on TV. As being a person involved with the breed I couldn’t fault him. With this being the 2nd year in a row he has won BOB and even getting through into BIS last year I think the judges agree that he is a brilliant example of the breed.
I don’t remember any criticism on him last year so what has changed this year.
Anyway as Lassie said I think we should agree to disagree on him. We all have very different views which I doubt debating will change.
Umm I dissagree with you on the shepherd suz. I saw him show in the breed ring and saw him after and he is lovely. Straight solid back and his movement was great especially when he was free running round the ring. I haven’t seen him in the group yet but the dog I saw on the day was stunning with no obvious movement issues. Has also got a stamp normal hips and elbows.
Unlike some of the dogs, a few overweight and one was obviously lame who got placed in the middle of the group 🙁
Was pleased that the dog who snapped at the judge got made to leave the ring but so should the lame dog! If a dog is hopping round the ring lame then it should have Been disqualified!
Suppose we can’t really criticise the vet until we know the reason behind why they failed each dog. I do think for breeds like the bulldog and Neapolitan who have a long way to go they can’t expect things to have changed overnight. That bulldog looks a lot better than it used to and credit should be given for the changes. Now with it not being shown in the group the general public watching Crufts won’t get to see it.
I have to say on the whole the Neapolitans were looking great. I’ve always wanted or but not as much excess skin that they were breeding. At least half of the ones I saw looked a lt better!
From the dogs I’ve seen you can tell the different between an eye infection and entropion? Surely the vet wouldnt have written it was entropion if it was only red running eyes?
Was very quiet at Crufts too! We got in with little traffic and parked relatively close!
Which dog failed for having dropping red eyes? Was it the neo and mastiff?
The kennel club say the reasons why the dogs fail is between the owner and the vet so they won’t be publishing the reasons why.,I hope they owners do. But yes if health checks were done on all the BOB winners I doubt the lame border collie would have passed.
haven’t seen much yet, have it all taped but have heard that the bulldog, peke and clumber all failed their vet checks after being awarded BOB.
Think it is a good thing that they are health checked but would still be better if this was before the show and not after they have won. Would also like to see the reasons as to why the dogs failed.
The clumber’s health certificate has been leaked saying it failed due to bilateral entropion and also ear problems.
I’m off tomorrow to crufts tomorrow, quite looking forward to it 🙂

Hi and welcome from me and Uno 🙂
certainly is :-\ poor skye x
Interesting read mudgie.
I am so sick of all these cross breeds, with seeing so many at the vets I’ve completely ran out of patients! It is still getting worse just today I’ve had a shih tzu x bichon in which looked like a complete mutt and the other day it was a schnauzer x poodle.
The woman got in quite a strop with me when I put down her expensive shihchon down as a shih tzu cross on its record. Told her sorry we only have recognised breeds on our database not crossbreeds. ::)
When will it all stop…..
