Thanks for the explanation! I've always wondered why some dogs just look awkward in the ring. Being a young dog could explain it.

What causes the awkward motion/look you saw on some dogs? The first dog in the GSD ring (woman in blue) looked like it was moving awkwardly and was always about to sit whereas the first GSD that walked into the ring just after her looked and moved more like the stereotype Working Line. The first dog looked like the stereotype for a Show Line.

I'm not trying to start a Working Line v. Show Line fight...I'm just wondering if there's a difference in anatomy or is there just a difference in how every dog moves.

brightspot I thought the While Bull Terrier looked too big and too tall for the standard. But what do I know. The Colored Bull Terrrier was adorable!

That little Min Pin that made it in the running for BIS was so full of himself! LOL, his name was Classy and it fit him!

blackshep I love the showline Labs! They have wonderful, easy going temperaments, and they aren't supposed to be fat either, although they are quite boxy and muscular. The field Labs I've met have not have very nice dispositions at all, but I also suspect they weren't very well bred.

I haven't seen the Westminster yet, it's airing tonight and I have it set to record though. I'll keep my eyes open for those dogs. I'm surprised a judge would reward a dog in poor body condition, that's a shame.
