IMHO – The Greatest Joy of Judging the 2021 Westminster KC

F IMHO

Every judge hopes that one day a white legal-size envelope with the gold embossed insignia of the Westminster Kennel Club arrives in their mailbox. There is something very special about being invited to judge at this prestigious show. Perhaps even more significant than accepting the invitation is actually to stand in the ring and judge the dogs. Five judges who did just that at the June show share the joy they felt as they completed this very coveted assignment. You might be surprised by the depth of the feelings.

Yes, Dogs are our life, but we all have some sort of a side passion. A little something, we do to otherwise occupy our minds. I have always been amazed by the number of Motor Heads in the dog world.

Coming of Age at Westminster

F Coming of Age

Christopher Guest’s mockumentary Best In Show came out in 2000, so it was one of the pegs for the first feature I did for WNYC, the public radio station for which I am now the annual show commentator. There was even a direct connection—I met the breeder who had supplied Guest with the Bloodhound that his character showed in the film. He interviewed her in character (here’s how they are described in a Google summary: “Harlan Pepper (Christopher Guest) and his Bloodhound Hubert: The Southern owner of a fishing goods store and an aspiring ventriloquist, he is an affable man who prides himself on being able to name every type of nut”) and she had no idea until the premiere that he wasn’t that aimable guy from the South.

Wasabi Conquers Westminster

F Wasabi

One week after his second Westminster conquest, David Fitzpatrick walked into a room full of judges and …nothing. No, this isn’t a really lame joke. It’s an example of how compartmentalized our sport has become in recent years. I caught up with David right after he’d gotten back from AKC’s two-day seminar for beginner judges. He admitted that he hadn’t bargained on winning Westminster when he originally booked his trip to Chicago. Actually, who would factor that sort of possibility into their schedule? But he did and despite that unforeseen complication there was the issue of the non-refundable ticket. Rather than being greeted by a standing ovation, “A lot of beginner judges didn’t even know who I was. They are from a wide background of breeds and not really cognizant of what’s going on in Toy breeds.” Still, it’s Westminster. But let’s leave it there.

Balance – Bones, Angles and Joints

F Balance

The forelimbs are, in essence, columns of support over which the body is propelled by the hindlimbs. The bone length and angles of the forelimbs must physically balance those of the rear limbs for maximum efficiency.

The shoulder (Scapula), the arm (Humerus), the pelvis (Ilium, Ischium and Pubis) and the thigh (Femur) are of approximately equal lengths, creating balance.
