    Mine's on CNBC, guess it depends where one lives.

    Look for the Cavies.

    Don't generally like hounds, but that Bassett is a precious galumpf.

    It's on CNBC tonight, and USA tomorrow night. There are a couple of repeats later tonight and tomorrow.

    ETA: Each breed that comes up I say "that's my favorite!"

    The Maltese goes to work every day with his breeder/owner/handler at a hair salon.

    As always, I am rooting for a "popular" breed. Lab, collie, golden retriever etc. They never win so I always root for them.

    I was rooting for the dalmation again. Of course if it had been a black standard poodle, that would have changed everything.

    rfisher, but that Standard had some kid of affect, including a tilted head as if I am the Champion, look at me. I liked it much better than the Bichon. As the "mother" of one yellow and two black labs, though, I know what you mean about the blacks, but, boy, they are harder to photograph.

    :lol: All my pictures are black blobs with red tongues. At least with the white poodles, the black eyes make a good contrast. The problem in the show ring is a good true black (not that they don't do a bit of dye jobs or use bluing for the whites). Bella wasn't a hard black as she had hints of brown in her coat as a puppy. Draco is a true black.

    How can the Old English Sheepdog see, it's all hair. Beautiful markings. A rookie. Beat a lot of the older dogs this afternoon in the preliminaries. Swagger.

    Polish Lowland Sheepdog.
    Puli. Corded. Plural is Pulik, I think that's how you spell it.
    Pyrenean Shepherd.
    Swedish Vellhund.

    Those are just a few of the strange names.
