    Not if you know what to look for...

    ... everyone should watch at least once to see what gaits are supposed to look like, angulation, croup, front end, etc.

    Dogs in motion...

    Always watch Westminster. One of my favorite things on TV. I love most dogs, but especially labs. Sure would like to see a lab as best in show.

    Breeding for conformation to a breed standard only has ruined a lot of great breeds.

    I think you're confused about drahthaars.

    I know what to look for : : :
    I know what I see when I compare the "motion" of a Westminster Pigador and a Field Labrador.

    With the Pigadors that are entered, I hope not.
    In fact with the popularity of Labs, I hope one never wins --- that would only increase their popularity.
