I had no clue that mixed breed dogs were allowed in any dog shows ever. How cool.

It sounds like a fun little contest to help show the public that even lawmakers are concerned about responsibly caring for their animals. Congrats to Max for coming so far!

Maybe the Senate or the cabinet could do this? Love to see attention drawn to what great animals can be found in a shelter.

Finally "mutts" are winning! I get tired of the competitions that spotlight the full-bred dogs, because I have always found that shelter dogs have a special something over dogs bred to be your companion. Hopefully the public will catch on and the need for specially bred dogs will decline.

It's about time. Mutts are just mixed breeds. That's the same thing a "designer" dog is: a mixed breed. Mutts are just as good as pedigree if not better.

Its important that we keep raising awareness to shelter pups that need adopted. This is a great way to let people realize "mutts" are great dogs too.

I'm glad that for once a mutt won the show. But I was under the impression that to enter a dog show that your animal must not be spayed or neutered. I wonder if this was the case with Max, or did they make an exception or have they relaxwed the rules to allow spayed and neutered animals. Or am I just plain wrong with my thinking?

That was cool. It is neat to hear that the dog doesn't have to be a pure bread in order to win! I know it is true, but you rarely hear about it. Go Max!
