    DefaultWhat's wrong with our show Labs? Nothing really.

    The bad news, for now 84 years a Lab has not won the sporting group at Westminster. > This year Salty didn't even make the final judge's cut. I just can't believe that in 84 years that there has never been a Lab that has not absolutely nailed the conformation standard that the judges are suppose to go by.
    The good news is that in in 84 years no Lab has won at Westminster. Just think how many extra Labs, beyond the current over breeding binge, would be bred if a Lab was ever to win, dare I say it, Best in Show.
    My thoughts if I were a Lab at Westminster:
    1. I don't need any ribbons in my hair.
    2. I don't need a haircut or hairstylist to make me look beautiful. :-*
    3. I'd rather been outside playing in the rain/snow/mud. ;D

    I think the reason behind this is that they are too "common" and other fancy breeds are more "attractive"? thats my guess, anyway. Although, either last year or the year before, a beautiful black Lab won the sporting/gundog group at Crufts which as you might know is the UK equivalent of Westminster. It was nice to see a Lab do so well.

    My thoughts exactly. I am happy for those that compete and for the labs that win in their category, but I am totally fine with them never getting TOP honors. Can you imagine how many BYB posts we'd have to fend off then????? ;D :'(
