This is a real dog in its natural habitat...the bleachers at a San Francisco Giants game.

cookiefleck: The First Noel: I guess they couldn't find an actual dog.

Why Westminster aggrandizes these type of animals I don't know, health problems out the ying-yang. It's not a healthy breed.

recognize well bred dogs, not farcical approximations of them.

/end rant.

It is one of the oldest breeds, but congrats on your woeful ignorance


He's right. Regardless of how old the breed is, the AKC has "standards" that regularly mean health problems for the dog. Selective breeding based on AKC standards has resulted in significant changes for even the most established breeds.

Also, I sincerely believe these kinds of dogs win more often because their size (and often hair) make it mush easier for handlers to control them and much harder for judges to see flaws,

This is mine in what he wishes was his natural habitat:

i39.tinypic.com

and afterwards:

i40.tinypic.com

Why anyone would get a purebred dog unless they need them for the express purpose of what they were bred for (like a hunting dog) is beyond me.

What is needed is a National Mutt Championship. Dogs will be judged on things of greater merit like the ability to take a punch.


Maddox the Katrina/Rita rescue agrees. He probably couldn't take a punch, but as a whippet/jack russell mix, he will outrun and outjump just about anyone who tries.

fappomatic: Pekes are among the oldest breeds and were prized by Chinese royalty. They are surprisingly healthy. That said, they are also one of the ugliest breeds I've ever seen. The ex had one. Nothing like having dog snot snorted in your face while you nap on the couch.


"a darling little creature with a multitude of health concerns that are not necessarily present in other breeds. These range from daily nuisances to possibly life-threatening conditions, which make owning a Pekingese somewhat the doctor's task. In fact many of the activities they're naturally inclined to do as dogs will need human aid and supervision because they are so prone to injury and medical issues. Link

I can't believe the Peke won.

I was hoping for the Irish Setter or the Dachsund but I thought the Doberman was the class of the field.

It most certainly does.

I kinda had a wild hope that the weimeriner (yeah, you get the gist) who was rescued from an abusive life would have won. Knew there wasn't a chance in hell, but that dog rocked.

that doesn't mean my Rottie wouldnt want that little pathetic yappy fur ball for a snack. Booo AKC.... pick a real dog


Also FTFA, Ben Walker of the Associated Press, do you know how I know you're gay??


I love big dogs, Rotties, German Shepards, St. bernards, all of them. Just because it's small and yappy doesn't make it any less of a "real dog".
