What a shame about the IWS;  just could not stand for examination for some reason.  Wonder if it was the overwhelming environment.  I looked her up and she has a CD, CGC and more.    Broke my heart for her handler.

Interesting correction:  checking the WKC results again and the numbers were inaccurate in the WKC data I first saw.  Was able to watch breed judging on youtube and the arm bands did not correspond to the WKC results.  (Winner was #7, not #9).  So, that explains why the #### I looked up had CD, etc.  It was not the right ####!    Still, terrible for the dog and young lady.  Still no video on official website!

Back up to the edit I did on the Water Spaniel;  Westminster had wrong results on the initial info;  I was able to decipher it with the help of youtube.  That explains the reason that an obedience titled dog was so skittish, etc. in the ring  (it was not obedience-titled, id was incorrect on it).  Feel awful for the young lady who was excused from the ring, esp. at WKC!

I felt so bad for that young handler. The dog was fine until the judge got near it, perhaps she had perfume or just didn’t get a good vibe from judge. I didn’t catch the age of the dog.

Saw the winner on the "Today Show" this morning...black poodle. I wanted the Golden Retriever, but they never win...

Have not gotten e-mails to let me know anyone has left a message on the forum for me.  Don't know what is going on, but did see your message when I came to the forum.  I was able to locate breed judging on youtube  (not on WKC site as of 10 pm last night).  This #### had her tailed tucked under her and did not seem very happy in breed, but nothing like her reaction last night.  At first I thought it might be this judge, but the whole experience seemed to freak her out.  I just hope they can get her back and moving forward.

Just so sad for the young lady handling her.  Maybe she can re-gain some confidence with some agility work or something;  it has helped a couple of mine in the past.
