Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, June 07, 2003
Retirement Announced 9/30/2010
Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. Moderate level of breed bias. Has a tendency to like dogs the more often they're seen. Thinks dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
