Will This Mean That A Toy Dog Will Be Named Best In Show At Westminster Tonight?

A Reader Asks…

    A fair and impartial judge will not base the decision on what class he likes. Hopefully!!!!

    Not necassarily. It usually makes them more critical of the breed of their choice that is entered. I would love to see a chihuahua win but I doubt seriously it will happen. Judges are not kind to the chihuahuas.

    You would think it to be that way, but really they shouldn’t 😉 And no, it doesn’t necessarily mean that at all.
    The BIS judge last year was partial to Dobermans, part of the working class… but he chose a Beagle. =)

    Not unless the judge absolutely feels that the toy is the best dog out of the group line up. Best in Show judges have to be able to judge each “group” of dogs on their own standards and most judges have owned and showed many different breeds over the years of their judging and showing.
