YAY! I just found out that I am officially upgraded to a premium account! So, just as soon as my doggies are old enough, I'll be able to begin breeding and contributing to the breed happy :)

Congrats Xi-Chi!

And surprise surprise to me, I finally got my first really nice, competitive dog in a long time. 96.45, although Im not too impressed with her coat. Hopefully she'll finish quick and make some nice (and better coated) babies! www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=14351137

Also- selling this 96.05 boy that I sessioned when I literally had nothing better to session but I dont know if I have the patience to see if he'll be competitive. Just needs a few more obedience sessions, if someone wants to give him a shot. www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=14297360

Very, very unhappy (maybe a bit mad even) - Wesley Eubanks has been retired!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was hoping he would be allowed to stay around for at least a year, since some judges have been here for years. Would like to know how it is decided that a judge will be retired.

Oh no sad :( that's very bad news indeed. I agree - sometimes the 'random' selection on this game doesn't appear to be so random after all.

Can't win -- have had some lovely traited pups that have had low SS recently -- but this one is really sad. Has a wonderful collection traits, but horrible SS. Don't know whether to keep or FH.

I might keep to breed with others in the future that have 20 show shine or if you have lower traits in those areas. I guess that's more of a personal preference. A while back when I was more actively breeding I remember keeping dogs with low SS if they had good traits that I was trying to improve upon.

On another note, does anyone happen to have any brood females that they might be willing to part with? I need to find 2 or 3.

Xi-Chi, if you need a broodie, go ahead and pick any one of my unsessioned, non pregnant females and submit an offer. Happy to help. happy :)

I'm sure I can find you a broodie or two. I'll PM you with who is available. I think I'm a bit behind others in SOP though...

I also have this 96.25 dog with a nice 9.5 size and 9.7 gait. I don't have room, but maybe another kennel might? happy :)

Thank you Yippee Yahoo happy :)

Just a shame we are loosing our favourite judge.

Congrats on your puppies Analeyn, they are lovely.

I am going quite green *lol*, all my best traited pups are coming in with low SS. My highest full SS is only 96.35. How is everyone else going?

I'm with you Aussie. My highest full SS is 96.35. I'm definitely in a bit of a lull, but haven't had as much time online lately which doesn't help!

What does everyone think is the current showable SOP? I've been sessioning some dogs, and do want to try my low SS dog to see what she does, but not sure if mine are really going to be competitive or not.

Put up the first 9.9 coated male for stud duties, and forgot to tell you all. Just in case anyone wants to try for a 9.9 coat.

He is only 95.80 adjusted SS (18.2 real SS).

There is another boy who should be up for breeding a bit later 95.95 adjusted SOP.

Thank you all for the wonderful brood females. Congrats Analeyn on the amazing puppies and Aussie on the Best in Show win, that's awesome.

I've been doing a sort of average in terms of SOP. I added the top 10 Keeshonds from last month and got an average of 96.25 SOP so I'm assuming that is the baseline for show quality. However, it seems that 96.00 or higher is finishable or that's what I'm seeing here.

A conformation dog show is not a comparison of one dog to another but a comparison of each dog to a judge's mental image of the ideal breed type as outlined in the individual breed's breed standard.
