Welcome to general discussion!

Did your Britt make you laugh today? Did he do something so smart, you are blown away? Those puppy teeth causing you to tear up, and you need an outlet? Or do you want to post a picture of his or her latest point? This is the place for it!

That was pretty cool. What got me was the Pedigree adoption commercial shown before. What a tearjerker!!! :cry:

We watched the breed show last night on the computer. Only saw one liver and white Britt. Guess they don't do too well in the show ring??

First, I would never be able to judge. I would be too busy kissing noses.

Second, we have two l & w Britts. There was one l & w that had a beautiful, beautiful dark silky coat. Ours get that "funky fur." What do they do to keep it dark???

These show dogs are intact....that is a big help toward keeping a "non-funky" coat. The dry cottony looking hair is somewhat common on both male and female altered dogs :cry:

I give them a supplement and feed them high quality dog food. At least I know now that funky fur is not because I am a bad mommy. My babies are both altered - and you knew it. So I feel like I just got a compliment from you. :D :D :D

Jester came close to winning a few years ago. I met him at our local dog show 2 weeks after Westminster and he's a gorgeous dog. I'm afraid that if a Brittany did win that rescue would end up swamped with Britts later. I'd rather they remain our secret! :wink:

Natalie - Agree with you about that Pedigree shelter commercial. I've been seeing it for several weeks and it upsets me everytime. "I don't know how I ended up here. I'm a good dog and I just want to go home." :cry:

Now I know what to call Victor's cottony coat - 'funky fur'!

That answered one of my questions about him. Now I won't worry about it being allergy related.

He had a beautiful silky coat when we adopted him from the shelter, but (according to a Brittany handler) the stress caused him to blow out his coat. Last summer he looked more like a hound than a Brittany. The only feathering he had left was a little on his front elbows. He has since been neutered and most of his coat has returned - except with a lot of funky fur.

Is Jester still alive ? He must be an old man Brittany now . I think it was the late 90s that he won the sporting group . I saw him two years in the sporting group on TV , second year he won Sporting and went to "Best in Show " group . I believe he got second in Best in Show . He is one beautiful Brittany , almost as nice as Levi or Blaze :wink: Dave

I agree.

Popularity so often marks a huge downfall for a breed. BYBs, puppymills, people getting them w/o doing research and because they're "cute" (and having no idea of the exercise needs, etc.). And then there would be the inevitable "poo" mixes. :roll: I hope it never happens to Britts!

Dave - I hope Jester's still alive. I think he was about 6 yrs old when he won in 2003, so he would be 10-11 yrs old now. Two of his offspring showed at Westminster this year - his daughter came in 2nd in breed judging (Best of Opposite Sex).
