I hope winning helps restore all the self esteem he lost when they named him.

You shouldn't even submit a "monkey dog" article that doesn't include pics. How cruel.

Always figured the St. Bernards should win - I mean they have those little casks of brandy with which to bribe the judges.

Once the first Golden Retriever was bred they should have stop breeding any other dogs. What was the point?

False. The best dog in the world is the Wire Hair Fox Terrier. And Westminster seems to back me up on this.

Came to say the article is useless without pics, see that it has been covered. I still prefer basset hounds! Came in #2 in the hound group. I told my Norma and she snuffled, yawned, and went back to farting in her sleep. Goodtimes.

I had a basset hound growing up - her name was Clementine. Best, dumbest dog I ever had. She had a habit of walking off the side of our deck while on her lead.

The deck was on the second floor.

The lead wasn't long enough to let her hit the ground.

And she did this multiple times.

Best... dumbest dog.

/She could also sign her name.
//Well, technically, she walked around in a circle while pooping, but she never completed the full circle, so it was a "C".

Well, since mutts are the best dogs, you could probably compromise on all this. Wonder what a golden/greyhound/schnauzer cross would be like...

Norma is blind (had to remove both eyes due to acute glaucoma). A little over a year and a half ago she nearly died due to some horrible rupturing on her chest. It is a long story, but I remember driving her to the vet after the stitches burst again, crying my eyes out, and of course getting a speeding ticket. She was bleeding all over my car and this cop called for backup because I was crying so hard and I pulled my car forward to move it out of traffic. The vet was only one block away. I remember begging him, please, follow me to the vet, arrest me if you want, but my dog is dying, and instead I had six cops surround my car with their hands on their guns and questioning why I was in that part of town and do I know how fast I was going (they installed a speed change midway down a steep hill on a road that goes from 55 MPH (used to be no-man's land). After businesses went up they incorporated the village and the revenue stream is tickets... but I digress.

So after ten minutes of my dog bleeding all over my car and me, I get my speeding ticket and then go the entire block to the vet's and carrying her in, begging them to save my dog. That month had been hell... that was the third vet visit and it just kept getting worse... the antibiotics, the sutures and the cauterizing... nothing worked. Finally they took her in for an emergency spaying, telling me that it could be cancer. I had to drop her off and drive home, terrified that I would get a phone call telling me the worst...

Instead, I got one that told me she would be okay, that it wasn't cancer, and to come back and pick her up. I will never forget that moment, when my blind basset hound stumbled out of the vet's office, her blind eyes staring ahead, panting and drooling as only basset hounds do, and gleefully wagging her tail.

She was going home.

/still tear up thinking about that

Fang Q quatchi for Winner foto. I need to say, since I didn't watch last eve but couldna resist this today, spread the championships around, which they appear to be doing. Was something writ yesterday about the major dog show organisations wrecking everything. Being gullible, I believed that so didna watch.
HS classmate from when dinosaurs ruled the earth is active in a Schnauzer organisation & rescue group. She may be pleased at Dora's accomplishment(s).
10 felines rule our lives; 2 of them came here seeking Safe Place (one of those bore 2 who're still here), 5 were brought as very young litter (never ever saw their mom, they all still here), we adopted eldest at 8 or 10 wks.

The first dog Future Mr Mouse ever had gotten was a mini schnauzer mix. When we were looking into dogs I wanted to get a terrier and he wanted something bad ass like a Husky or Malamute. Since he was a novice I swayed him a little and after some research he decided we should look into mini schnauzers because "If they were good enough for Bruce Lee then there's good enough for me."
