    Silly question, but when she's outside is she still tethered or is she turned loose? She may need to get farther away from you to poop.

    The only mini dachshunds I've ever known have been mini Wirehairs bought from excellent breeders. And they were fantastic dogs. Big personalities in very small packages, but they were adorable and...

    Ha! That's exactly what I was going to post when I read "who will illustrate this?" I was going to say COHers can do it with stick art - remember how long that thread got?

    So glad you found him. What a different life for him now!

    I have a little laboratory beagle who sleeps under the covers with me every night, snuggled right up against me. His other favorite thing...

    What I don't like about it...well, there's a lot, but this shipping lost pets all over the country is nasty. A woman I work with got a drop-dead gorgeous Portuguese Water Dog from a "rescue" in the...

    Dressy pants are fine. I guess I was focusing more on "hot August" so went to dresses. I agree that it seems that people don't dress up much for church any more, but dressing up - dressing nicely -...

    Disaster.

    Again, the Borzoi's job was not to bring the wolf to bay, but to physically capture and hold the wolf alive. Big difference.

    Bringing to bay, holding alive for capture, and killing your quarry are...

    In the late 1960s/early 1970s there was still discussion, even in The Borzoi Quarterly, about temperament, and the battle breeders had. I recall specifically one discussion in which one of the...

    Well, since we're quibbling, and just in the interests of accuracy ;) : the Borzoi's job often was to not kill the wolf. Their job was to catch and hold it for capture alive. They were tough, TOUGH...

    The skirt doesn't need to be below the knee. If you have one fine, but I don't think many people do. Just above the knee is fine. Just use your common sense. Nothing very short, be aware of what...

    Another collie fan here.

    Brodie is very handsome. How'd he end up in rescue?

    Scruffy, your dog is gorgeous.

    One more. This one's pretty good. No demons, Griffyn! Just moving furniture:

    I love them! Those faces!

    Mama dog is beautiful.

    I've never seen Scottish Deerhounds puppies so young. The smooth coats were a surprise. When do they rough up?

    Judges' education for beagles also brings up eye color. I'll give only 2 examples from the parent club (The National Beagle Club) itself. There are plenty more:

    I'm extremely familiar with the beagle standard. I helped create the first breed video for beagles by travelling to Virginia and using one of my dogs and handling dogs from other people.

    We'll agree to disagree. :) Dogs who spin and woof every single time they do the down & back at every single show are not showing exuberance. They've been taught to do that. Any dog in that ring...

    Nope, not at all. I'm referring to the beagle 20 years before Uno. Where do you think they got the idea?

    Neither Uno nor the other dogs who do this need to do it. They're very good dogs. The...

    Thank you. I had food poisoning that day, too, which I apparently contracted at a dinner the night before. I had to stop twice on the way to the show to pull over and throw up. I was so incredibly...

    Also, when you asked if "trainability/behavior" comes into play, you got good answers. I'll only add that a dog that snaps at or bites the judge will be excused from the ring, as will a dog that...

    That was with beagles.

    Which is as good a place as any to point out that we won Best of Variety, not Best of Breed, because some breeds are like that..
