Airedales: We Wuz Robbed!!!


The GORGEOUS Airedale Terrier got to do his run around the ring at Westminster but he couldn't compete! Apparently there was a "conflict of interest" with the judge and the Airedale handler.

I personally think that "conflict of interest" must mean "judge thinks Airedale is going to win no matter what because of the incredible cuteness of said Terrier so it's not fair to the other dogs for this fantastic specimen to compete because no other dog has ANY CHANCE of winning"... or something to that effect.

Yes, I feel (slightly) better now.

While all of the fuss was going on in the living room (that is, mama was fussing about the Airedale not competing), I was doing this:

Hey matie,
I don't blame you for snoozing. That bed looks pretty comfy.
Love the crust eating shots from your previous post matie. The girls usually get the crusts in this household.....sigh.

I'm guessing this is you in your natural habitat. I see a nice comforter there, plenty of animal print pillows, a ball for amusement, and there's probably some of your dad's signature jerky treats stashed somewhere under the covers for mid-nap noshing.

Bummer about the Dale. Since when did Westminster get to be so concerned with ethics? That Aireboy sure was a beauty, though.

Goober love,

I'm with you, dude. That Airedale was totally fine and the dumb judge just couldn't bear to see a mighty Dale win. I think he tossed that other doggie out just to cover his tracks.

It was a great shame about the judging, we feel the Airedale would have won paws down, he was a lovely Dale.

Sweet dreams!!!!!!

It just goes to show, that it’s not always good to be the best looking dog in the room. Life is hard for us Dales. The expectations are already soo high for us, we have to be twice as good to get half the acknowledgement, but I think we are up to it.

Our mom and dad were in an uproar in our family room too and we were doing the same thing as you were, Bogie, and of course you drew the perfect conclusion! Thanks for making mom smile!

Love ya lots

Harrrrr Bogart
that Airedale was ex because the handler used to work for the judge Harrrr. It was talked about before they went in the group ring. The owners did not want to change handlers so they sent them in with the regular handler.
