Yep, The Australian Shepherd won. They were all beautiful dogs, and though I'm partial to Dobies I thought the Beagle should have been best in show.

What type of dog was the last one shown before the winner was announced?
I watched today for the first time. I was amazed by how long the fur was on that last one.

The Old English Sheepdog was shown by a wonderful lady I met on another board. They are such fun dogs!

Pekenese. That dog had me laughing the whole time. He walked so slowly! I wanted the Beagle to win but also liked the Aussie. All the dogs were pretty awesome. I loved the Dobie too. Very nice dogs.

I don't think I saw that dog. Everyone over here wanted the doberman or the beagle to win. I had never seen that 'rope' dog before. It was pretty cute.

can i just ask, what dog show is this?

It was the National Dog Show in Philadelphia and sponsered by Purina. The Australian Shepherd that won was just over six months old and this was her 1st Best in Show. What a way to start a show career!

We have a lot of those Australain Shepards around here. A lot of people use them for cattle dogs, they are great at it! We even have a breeder near our hometown. They are so pretty!!! Sadly they have some health problems, almost all of them born with two blue eyes are blind. (That's what the breeder told me at least, he had one blind puppy and kept it)

That is not always the case Many born with blue eyes can see and hear just fine. Some however do have genetic issues with sight/hearing- but it's not as many as most think. Good breeders know to try and work out defects from the blood line and try to keep the blood lines pure as they can get them (although genetically, it's not always possible). They're also prone to hip dysplasia/etc if they are allowed to become overweight/ not feed a good diet, but with proper diet and exercise- health issues are minimal in most aussies, just depending. Most Aussies if cared for properly are just as healthy as any other doggie out there I think there is a big misconception about blue eyes/etc between people.

The only health problem (thankfully) my baby's ever had is ear infections. Those floppy ears are perfect for developing chronic yeast infections- we have to keep his ears cleaned all the time -otherwise it's like he develops an infection overnight! Other than that though- he's been in perfect condition since we adopted him We've also had quite a few Aussies that i've fostered from the shelter where i work- all of them except for two could hear/see perfectly. The two that couldn't were the result of a BYB who had no business "breeding" the dogs- and as a result..genetic issues that caused eye problems and deafness in the pups.

Aussies are amazing dogs- they're perfect family pups too! Mine is soo loving and devoted! I LOVE his energy level too - i like having active dogs that i can go running with/play with/etc....these are insanely high energy dogs that need daily training/work- definitely not the right dog for everyone- but they can be perfect for the right home. Many times people adopt Aussies as pups because they're adorable, not understanding how family oriented/high energy they can be -and often times they get dumped off at shelters as they get older because people can't handle them. They can be the best dogs with proper training and daily exercise- you have to make them mind though- they are sneaky But- if they're neglected and not properly trained- they can be naughty. The key to having a wonderful Aussie is research- read about them, learn everything you can and make sure it's the right dog for the person adopting it- and then do everything in your power once you adopt one to train them/work with them. They need daily stimulation- they won't just lay on the couch all day and be happy- they'll be miserable without exercise/something to keep them busy- they NEED to be put to work, otherwise they will be bored...and a bored dog turns into a destructive dog. Mine loves "working" (we do daily training drills with both dogs- they love it- and it keeps them active it also helps them keep their commands well).

Aussies are great! I love the beauty of the breed- they have the most gorgeous build/coat and can be sooooooo sweet! I just love the personality of them too- they're little love bugs-there's never a dull moment when they're an Aussie in your house

The rope dog is the Komodor, with the smaller version called a Puli. They are wonderful dogs, but people tend to think the cords are due to poor grooming.
Probably the most difficult to keep groomed and clean, IMO.

I want a Komodor! I love them! We have 2 puli's at my work right now, but they have Bichon hair cuts, and just look weird!
