For most people, the sound of the words "dog" and "show" together conjures up images of pampered purebreds strutting their stuff under television lights in an immaculate ring surrounded by velvet ropes. That was hardly the case last week at the first… more ›

I agree! I get tired of seeing the purebred dogs get loads of attention, and then the mutts not so much. As if they aren't worth as much. What defines a purebred anyway? After all the purebreds are combination of several breeds. Aren't mutts just a mix of more then one breed? Any dog could be called a "purebred". Anyhow, this is nice to see.

I agree. It is wonderful to see the mutts hightlighted instead of just purebreds

mixed breads can be better then the pure breads since the faults may be minimized with the other breed

cheers to that. it's mind boggling how some people don't think all dogs should be treated equally, like being a mutt decreases their capacity to love and be loved in return.
...and boyfriends need a little discipline. dogs know they did something wrong w/just a look. how many men are ever that perceptive? no offense, guys! sometimes our irritations just go right over your heads. don't try to deny it!

It seems to me that it's obvious that the comment you made was the result of indepth and long testing with excellent results. Results are no longer pending results are in. After doing my research as well. The first clue was the test itself! The second clue was telling him it was over his head with my eyes! and the third clue with it being confirmed was him saying What! What!

Sincerely,
PETPATIENCE

finally a dog show for the mutt's but as far as I am concernd can't they all just be diesnger breeds cause those dogs started out as mutts anyways. Like an airdale terrier and a beagle mix could be a Bairdale terrier or a great dane and a pittbull mix could be a Great Bull. I think that would work there are the dna tests now if you have a mutt and want to know what breed of dog it is for all you know it may not be a mutt at all it may be a pure bred dog breed of some sort. You can buy these online or at petco. As far as I am concered they should all be treated as if they are a pure bred dog and that means spioled rotten. I put the boyfriend and other men and guys in the dog house when they are bad but never the dog or cat or whatwever pet has misbeahaved just gets a time out.

maybe most nutritionally challenged dog wasn't such a good contest. people shouldn't feel be rewarded for letting their animals weight tip the scales. maybe a nutritionally sound contest would have made more sense - they could have judged by having an agility course or a frisbee contest.

That is a good idea. Too many pets (including most of my cats) are overweight.

Sounds like BARC is a really great organization. Glad their fundraiser was a success and I hope they continue to have more success in the future with this show.

That sounds like an entertaining and fun way to raise money for a good cause.

While most of the contest categories were interesting, I didn't care for the "Senior Stud" category since it would make these dogs appear to be unneutered, contrary to BARC's objective.

they should only allow participants who have been fixed. kind of like incentive for people to take that responsibility before next years show.

They should also make any entrants turn in current vet records and fill out a paper and sign one. One for bad beihaviors the dog may have and one signed in case the dog does any damage to the people there their dogs or the building or decarations saying they will pay for any damage and not bring their dog back if it hurt a person or another dog.
