But this dog won the Nonsporting Group at Westminster last night.
If we’re celebrating purebred dogs, the best way is to shun the ol’ sourmug.
This is the breed that has pretty much everything wrong with it, except that it doesn’t get matted fur.
This is the most buggered up dog that “sound scientific breeding” ever produced, and the fact that people want to buy these–and spend a fortune on them– is just a sign that people still are suffering from having too much money and not enough sense.
When you get one of these dogs, you’re pretty much guaranteeing that the animal won’t live long and will have at least one or two emergencies that could have been prevented had the dog not had such an exaggerated conformation.
I was going to stay out of this nonsense this year, but the fates were not with me.
Let’s just hope this poor thing doesn’t wind up Best in Show.
If that happens, it will just be another sad day for dogs, and the American purebred dog establishment of this country continues on into irrelevancy.
I don’t have the piss and vinegar that I once possessed to attack the modern concept of a bulldog.
I’m just sad.
