I said the same a few posts prior. I've gotten so used to it that this year, I didn't even watch. I was really disheartened last year when the Peke one, especially since I don't care for the breed. The dialogue about that and small dogs being in general indicated that the reason for this is that it is easier to breed those dogs pure to standard. I'm not sure why this is, perhaps because they are smaller and therefore easier to control genetically? Or, perhaps because so many of the bigger dogs are bred for other purposes - guiding, hunting, policing, therapy, etc. - there is a less a focus on breeding pure to standard and less breeders who breed the dogs for show? Add to this the horrid, heartbreaking documentary that came about what breeders were doing to dogs to make them more suitable for show. Things like weakening the hips of the German Shepherd dog and spreading cancer in the Cavalier. Turned me off Westminister a bit, though I admit I couldn't avoid watching if a real dog like Josh the Newfoundland won again.
