AKC CH Pic

For those of us that show or want to show our dogs.

I wanted to share a picture of my girl Lexy's ( Hiley Winsome Ways ) win pic from finishing her CH.
I saw where Michelle had posted about being quite dissapointed in the condition of AKC show dogs after attending a 4 day show. I agree, they are way overweight and most act like they can hardly get around a ring. I know a few people who try to keep their dogs where they should be.

This is the weight I try to keep my dogs at, I have been told by several people that Lexy is too thin, a few judges included, but I won't fatten her up, that's for sure. She can go miles and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I think she looks pretty good! I like my dogs lean, but that's just a personal preference. She has a decent tuck, I like to see a rib or two, but it sure is nice to see that they actually will put up some dogs that don't look like sausages!

Thanks Michelle,
I will admit she is a bit thinner now, but she is also usually the most in shape dog, there are few others also. I am definitely going to have a hard time if I decide to do some specialing, but there are judges are out there who will look at the DOG !!

I keep Riggs at this weight now:

He might be a pound lighter, but not much.

I've been told that showing him AKC would be a waste of time, but I'm planning on throwing away one day of show fees just for laughs. Seeing him in a ring next to the more common hippos will be funny!
