THE DOG SHOW WORLD

· If you love to talk about dogs, you're a know-it-all.
· If you don't talk about dogs, you know nothing.
· If you stop to chat at a show, you're a show-off.
· If you don't, success has gone to your head.
· If your dogs are at all the shows, you're not letting others in on the wins.
· If you're absent, you're afraid of the competition.
· If your dog wins, you know the judges.
· If you don't win, it's obvious your dog isn't quality.
· If you win and thank the judge, you're playing politics.
· If you win and don't thank the judge, you're rude.
· If you lose and congratulate the winner, you're a hypocrite.
· If you lose and don't t say anything, you're a poor sport.
· If you've been breeding less than 20 years you're a newcomer.
· If you've been breeding for more than 20 years, you should get out of the way of the up-and-comers.
· If you use your own stud, you're kennel blind.
· If you go outside for stud services, you don't think much of your own breeding.
· If you sell most of your puppies, you're trying to flood the market.
· If you keep most of your puppies, they're not good enough to sell.
· If you keep your health testing up to date, you're admitting your lines are full of problems.
· If you don't check for every condition known to veterinary science, you're irresponsible and have no integrity.
· If you choose to mentor or offer 'free' advice, you're arrogant.
· And finally, if you keep your opinions and knowledge to yourself, you haven't learned anything.

It's so funny how all of those are true!!
Some people take dog showing way too seriously, and let stupid things cloud their vision..

I think that if you are always polite and courteous to EVERYONE, then you cannot go wrong :)

I've found some of those to be true in the PWD world, but not all... I am willing to believe that the poodle world is quite different though!

I guess I'll find out if my boy is show quality like we hope he is!

so basically you can't win :p

I am very lucky I am the only one showing standards in Iceland and if there is some competition it is from my puppies and of course I want to see them win :p
And it is a smooth sailing for Vaka since there are no other bitches at the moment in coat. Of course she will not win unless the judge likes her but we don't have to worry about loosing to other dogs.
