Re the Dog Show. By marginalizing the criteria by which a champion of all breeds is chosen, in this case making a dog a champ because of the sympathy felt for him, renders those who won before him something less then champions as they were.

The same sort of thing happened when they gave the Nobel Peace prise to Passer Arafat. That award has lost every single bit of it’s prestige for anyone who has a modicum of common sense.

My apologies but I have wanted a place to park the following comment on our prez....(not mine) but everyone’s:

“Dummer ‘n a bar of soap!”

Boy that felt good!

I agree.

I can’t imagine how all of the other owners and trainers felt when a sympathy vote won Best in Show. Especially after all the promos given to Uno, the previous year’s winner, and what a champion he was for his whole year of appearances, a la Miss America.

What will this year’s old dog be able to actually do?

That choice totally diminished the prestige of the title.
