I had a thought (strange but true!), on the way back from CRUFTS. who in the North West got placed or pulled out for another appraisal, by our judge? Why not share your success, big or small, with the non-attending North West fraternity?

Something a little controversial and will undoubtly cause comment is another observation of mine...
What is happening to our young Dalmatians?
We witnessed a veteran dog go BOB, which in it's self is always great BUT how does it reflect on the breed? Are our young dogs maturing slower than they used to? Why?
Let me know what you think!

Hi

In reply to your second point. Having looked, not just at our results from Crufts, the "problem?" you note dosen't seem to be only in our breed. Several other breeds had vetrans in the big ring. At least in our breed it appears that our dogs do better than the foreign dogs shown. I know we had foreign dogs placed but they didn't win the classes.

Many of the dogs in the final line up were from abroad. Maybe this is something that we need to watch?

As for our dogs maturing later, this is supposed to be a slow maturing breed and perhaps we are returning to this. Perhaps puppies are not being exersised as much as they once were and are taking longer to muscle up? not a bad thing.

What do others think?

Yours

Kay
