    ReplyDelete
  68. I heard a rumor that CJ is retiring. Did anyone hear that?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yikes, forgive me for being rude but that outfit looks like a quilt Kim and if you have to pick it up to walk it's maybe the best thing to judge in *ducking*

    ReplyDelete
  71. The Tibetan Mastiff in this group is my dark horse

    ReplyDelete
  72. OMG! I just sent a text to a friend sitting ringside and asked what the heck that was the judge was wearing - might be nice for a evening event - but judging working dogs? Hmm . . . Sue B.

  76. Carissa does a great job with this dog

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  79. Love CJ and Scarlett, the Boxer too!

    P.S. My husband said to take this judge off of the list of those to show too- All based on the outfit-too funny
    Debra

    ReplyDelete
  80. The Mal is very sound and has a nice go around, definitely a possibility given it is her breed. Sue B.

    ReplyDelete
  81. So far I agere - I like Shirley's Bullmastiff also. Sue B.

    ReplyDelete
  82. That would be AGREE - good lord typing and watching is tough! And texting also to friends that are either there or home elsewhere! Some sort of spectator commotion during Rissa and CJ's presentation - medics and security removed a mother and child? Hmm . . . thought I heard some differe nt noises! Sue B.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I like this Saint, my first show dog was a Saint

    ReplyDelete
  84. Nice clean go around on the rottie - she was very nice as a package. Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  86. This Siberian has won the breed here three years in a row

    ReplyDelete
  87. Again, this group has some very nice dogs - the depth again is going to be tough - this Tibetan Mastiff is really AWESOME for its breed - what a greeat dog! SueB

    ReplyDelete
  88. I will try to list those that make the cut - hang in there . . . Sue B

    ReplyDelete

  100. Mal is a lovely specimen of the breed. BUT it is trimmed to no end and this is a NATURAL breed. Kim has done for this dog before as she should.. this dog has alot of the same lines her dogs do.

    ReplyDelete
  101. First group that I've totally agreed with judge's picks. And Billy, that tibetan Mastiff is awesome, I'm happy he made the cut!
    Patty H

    ReplyDelete
  102. Just want to thank you so much for live blogging this, Billy. No cable here so your event is making my night! Katharine M.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Does anyone think that the Scottie can be beaten in the group?

    ReplyDelete
  104. YES! I think the depth in the Terrier group is even more than what we saw in the hound group. I really like the Smooth Fox and the Irish Terrier. Soft spot for the Std Manchester - a long time friend owns him now, and Marcelo is an excellent handler. Just my 2 cents! Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  105. Love Lorraines Outfit! Just thought I would add that :) sue B

    ReplyDelete
  106. on second thought...I don't think the Scottie is beatable under this judge...

    ReplyDelete
  107. What were the placements in the Sporting Group?

    ReplyDelete
  108. I am writing from Brazil, and enjoying very much your coverage. I agree with the working judgement and just can't wait for the terriers.

    Sílvio

    ReplyDelete
  112. Brittany, Irish Water Spaniel, Gordon, Lab

    ReplyDelete
  113. I really like this colored bull terrier

    ReplyDelete
  114. Can't wait to see the parson, I owned one two years ago but it died at a young age of heart problems, shockingly he went well with the gsds!

    --gsdgirl

    ReplyDelete
  115. Nice Colored BT - growing up my best friend had the top colored BT in the country. Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  120. this is a nice Irish Also! Boy, I am beginning to run out of ribbons again! Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  121. The Lakeland went Group Two behind Sadie at Montgomery County, the all Terrier show

    ReplyDelete
  122. Nice Lakeland - although I was wondering about front movement - he seemed stiff to me! Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  123. why were people laughing at the mini-bull?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Marcelo and Cash looked wonderful as always - this is such a tough group. sometimes I think it should be split somehow . . . Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  125. Very sturdy, nicely coated Norwich - I liked him! Sue B.

    ReplyDelete
  126. They showed that mini bull being silly & flipping around at the end of his go round. I'm guessing that's what they were laughing at..

    ReplyDelete
  127. Evidently the mini bull was playing with his handler after the go around - had the crowd laughing and applauding - being a typical clown! Sue B (friend is sitting ringside)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Gabriel is pulling out all the stops

    ReplyDelete
  129. Larry is the 2009 handler of the year

    ReplyDelete
  130. cute parson, I miss mine so much, I'm not ready to get another one but someday I will since they are a great breed.

    --gsdgirl

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  145. I have watched Westminster for many years. but this year for the first time I have become a participant in AKC conformation showing with my Scottish Deerhound bitch. Everyone's comments last night and tonight have been very interesting - I have enjoyed them and learned a lot - thanks to Billy and everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I think it will come down to Sadie and CJ - #1 and #2 and of course, I am partial. but the Whippet is gorgeous also! What a line up! Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  147. Did anyone else hear that - what is going on in the crowd? Booing - not at all necessary? Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  148. so I guess the booing had something to do with PETA people

    ReplyDelete
  149. 2 women running into the ring with signs saying MUTTS RULE - from a friend that is ringside. Sue B

    ReplyDelete
  150. Is it just me or was there something going on with the Puli's movement?

    ReplyDelete
  151. someone went out with a sign that says Mutts Rule on it I guess and then another one too

    ReplyDelete
  152. How horrible, how did they even gets that close to the ring? Ugh! Maybe it's just me but the Puli looked like it was limping...Dobe was just stunning

    ReplyDelete
  153. I'm going with Sadie. Got to. Can't lose my Terrier card

    ReplyDelete
  154. Puli had movement issues , do not know what is happening there. CJ looked awesome!
