Beautiful. Thanks for posting the video - and huge congrats to Elphie and her breeder.

Can I ask a question about showing? I notice that none of the judges actually put their hands on the dog. Is that done separately? (I assume that part of the judging must include feeling dogs structure, looking at teeth, etc?). When I watch the televised Westminster, I'm always surprised at how quickly each dog is looked at. Is there more extensive examination that goes on before that final go in the ring?

Thanks for indulging my ignorance!! I'm really interested in how it is done.

How many Presto offspring were shown? I see at least five, including my pup's sire. Elphie is a beauty.

That is a good question- Mad Hatter Maxx is another Presto kid, and that stunning top bitch- he has been a prolific producer for sure. Lovely temperaments and lovely clearances.

My pup is out of Shyan's Here Comes Santa C Laws, Nick, who was also there. With the Tamarack dogs and Maxx that makes at least 6. I really lucked into a beautiful pedigree. I know a little more now, from this forum, and would still be drawn to this line. I am head over heels in love with my Pippin. This comes after having dogs for all 47 years of life so far that I loved... but not quite like this. I was a bit surprised by how hard I fell. How did Mysic's Karagold litter turn out?

Mystic looked fabulous- sorry the question got lost!
So, yes- each dog is examined individually which includes bite, body parts, things like loin length, shoulder layback, tail set and length- all of which happens super fast, and then dog does a down and back (movement away and at the judge) , then usually a self stack, and then a go-round (side gait). You figure (when you are figuring ring times) 2 minutes per dog.
