I judged a White Shepherd show today. I always try to be fair and balanced (sorry Fox News!) I worry about hurting people’s feelings and I don’t want to discourage anyone so I explain my reasons for my placements pointing out the good and the not so good and offering encouragement. I wish the AKC would recognize the White Shepherd as a separate breed. As it is now their color is a disqualification in AKC, CKC, FCI conformation. The UKC has recognized them as a separate breed.
These are my winners, not official photos just quick shapshots I took in between the official photog’s pictures.:
My Best Puppy. An older puppy never stands a chance with me me when a baby puppy is there.
My Winner’s Female
Reserve Winner’s Female
Reserve Winner’s Dog
Best Opposite Sex Puppy. The owner was so cute. I told him he needed to keep his dogs nails shorter as they were causing the feet to splay. After his class he trimmed his dog’s nails before coming back in the ring for Best Puppy.
