Layla isnt show quality, but she's definitely healthier now thats she's dropped some pounds. She's faster, more agile and performs better now that she's not carrying around 15 pounds of extra fat.
All too often, "show quality" means that the dog LOOKS like what a middle aged, female dog hobbyist with limited working experience thinks the breed should look like.

I've seen some pretty hairy broads out there...

I don't like "show" Aussies, BCs, or most herding breeds...I'll stick to the non-show dogs that can actually perform what they were bred to do. I like rangier pit bulls too...the short and wide syndrome affects them worse than many breeds!
