Huan's Hounds: The Dog Lover's Guild

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

Would be nice if the Golden Retriever got something this year.
My favorite big dog is the Golden.
Love the Norwich Terrier and the Papillon for the small dogs.

Yeah, I was bummed about the Poodle, too.

Can't wait for tomorrow night. :D

My favorite big dog is the Belgian Tervuren, but it didn't place. They never do somehow. And this year it was a particularly lovely one.

The Sheltie, I thought looked really good (I don't like the way their eyes have gotten smaller in recent decades). Can you tell my favorite group is Herding? :)

But oh well, tonight will the the terriers. They're fun.

I do have a quibble about many in the terrier and sporting groups though; I used to take this for granted when I was younger, but in recent years my spirit has rebelled. I hate the fact of docking tails. Many terriers and most spaniels have it required. WHY??? I imagine that spaniels' tails must naturally be like those of setters. Look at the Cavalier King Charles from the toy group; that has a beautiful tail! I can understand that the use to which spaniels have traditionally been put is more conducive to not having long tails that get in the way, but those uses are hardly ever called on anymore. As for terriers, some of the standards only require a small docking. Why bother?? As long as their tails are strong enough to act as handles when they go underground, who cares if they're a little longer? And some terriers are too big for that anyway.

Most places in the US have now forbidden the cropping of ears. Next Step: The Tails!!!

Dang! I missed it this year! :( Usually my news feeds are filled with it, but there's some thing going on in Russia...

Congrats on the winners...esp. the Golden! They deserve more recognition.

Oh, she's beautiful, isn't she? :D Fitting, isn't it, that she's realted to Uno, the only other Beagle to win BiS at Westminster? What a bloodline!!

Hey, at least the poodles aren't as ubiquitous as they used to be.

I'm still waiting for the Shelties...

I need to find a picture of her. :)

What about the Bishon? One of them needs to win. And there should be a Heinz 57 category. ;)

I watched the Agility tests, Iris.
When they announced the dog and its breed,
The Heinz 57's were introduced as an:

"All American Dog" :D


Loved it!

There was a Bichon who won some years back, at least since I've been watching it on TV, the one called J.R. He's sometimes still mentioned.

"All American Dog." I love it! :heart: I didn't watch the whole Agility competition, but I saw where they showed the winner of at least one category. That is one place where the dogs don't have to be purebred. Any other AKC competition, they do.

I like it too! :D Mom and I think our dear Sheena would have won on personality alone. :) We were laughing at the pictures of the English Springer Spaniel...the ones at the show have beautiful, long silky hair. Ours, even when brushed, just had curls. :roll: No matter how long it got, we'd brush it out, it would look pretty, she'd walk across the room, it would curl up.

I love dalmatians too. We loved the two we had...they have so much personality.

My husband's boss has a Rottweiler. One night we stopped to pick something up and Dozer was running around loose...somehow the garage door got open and he was having a ball. I climbed out of the car he came up and gave me kisses. I said, "Oh, you're a scary dog, aren't you?" :D Then I said to Rob, "I think he's tasting me..." He's just the biggest baby, that dog.

I didn't see that one coming either! Though it is a beautiful dog. But my guess would have been the Shepherd, the Bulldog, the Skye, or the Shi Tzu (though I was sort of rooting for the Samoyed, along with the Bulldog).

Hey, didja notice: No Poodles!! :D

Though I thought for sure the Shepherd would take it.
