My friend and I took our dogs out the other day. The conversation came round to fun dog shows. I've entered a few with Sasha and never even come close to winning, or her even getting a second glance. My friend was saying the same, joking about some of the classes.

Neither of our dogs are 'classically' attractive. Her dog is a Mastiff x staffie, and Sasha a Heinz. Neither have particuarly waggy tails, pretty eyes, or shiny coats.

So we started to compile a list of 'alternative' dog show categories.

So far we have

1. Dog the judge would least like to take home
2. Most aesthetically challenged dog
3. Dog who gave a member of the public the biggest bruise when knocking them over
4. Dog who assumed the quickest 'I'm bored I want to sleep now' position during a class

Can anyone add to these? lol.gif

There was a just for fun one at our local carnival and i did specifically look for;
a) Skinniest dog in show
b) Dog voted the most likely to give you fleas award
c) Barkiest mutt in show
d) least obedient hound
e) Best Jack from a different Country (Two year olds only) in show

I once entered a Best Brace (Matched or 'Irish', ie. mismatched) with three dogs, all completely different...and we came fifth! lol.gif ninja.gif

Minstrel and I nearly parted company at one show - I wanted to be in the Large Lurcher class, he wanted to join the contestants in the Minis agility in the next ring, so I reckon he would like a pursuit agility class! lol.gif

Dog most likely to clear the ring with one fart. Skip would win.

Dog most likely to be facing the wrong way when the judge comes round. Either of mine would excel in that class.

Dog least likely to win anything ever. Bonnie would win this, she never wins anything. Actually, in that case, she would be runner-up.

Oooh just thought of another one.... dog most likely to sound like a stuck pig if you dare to walk outside of his field of vision.

Ok that may just be Benji, but when we were camping and OH went into the shop he started his "squealing" when I wouldn't let him say hello to a dog chained to a post outside the same shop. A lovely lady walked past, nodded and smiled like one who knows and understands and simply said one sentence "Bet he's at least part patterdale, he sounds like ours" I didn't know whether to laugh, cry, blush or sympathise but we had a lovely little chat about our mental dogs after that rolleyes.gif lol.gif lol.gif
poverton
Dog with the neatest bottom - I don't think Max has even GOT a bottom ohmy.gif

Golden retriever most unlikely to retrieve - Fred would win that smug.gif

Dog most likely to flush out Bin Laden.............with a fart...............Monty would win hands clapped round ones face ohmy.gif

As you can see I have loungeful of potential champions.... tongue.gif

Sascha says can she enter that one too? Is there a mixed doubles class for joint success? tongue.gif

Also:
