I Get No Respect… Fine! We Get No Respect!

Okay, if you go here you will see Lor the Swedish Vallhund, Luke the Icelandic Sheepdog, Queso the Entlebucher Mountain Dog, even a stinkin’ Skye Terrier… see anybody who got left out? Oh yeah, the Clumber!

So here’s this year’s BOB winner. Best damn dog in the whole show, too, if you ask me…. What the heck was that winner? An “Affenpinscher”??? A flippin’ Affenpinscher? I give up!



Update: Kaeton proves my point by posting a link to the NYTimes article where the “winner” is described thusly: “Banana Joe, a black dog with a monkeylike face, defeated six dogs to become the first affenpinscher to win Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday night. A “monkey like face”? Lovely!

    The Dandie Dinmont was far cuter than any of the other terriers but, sigh, the judge didn’t have very good taste. The Clumber had all the good aspects of the Sheepdog and the advantage of having eyes but the judge ignored that. Dumb.
