What’s in a body?

Barbets_faces2

Booly Wooly and Froggy: both 59 cms. When they are measured the judge will generally ask me what their size is and  as I know, it’s “just” a question of double checking.

Froggy weighs just over 25 kilos and Guyguy not much more than 23*. I have no reason to lie about it as some do regularly and others find it humorous to defy the standard to promote dogs. What’s the point?

* Tiboubou, Guyguy’s father was 62/63 and weighed around 23. That means he had real small poodle type bones despeite his size.

I would be happy to see a dog that weighs 30 k and is not obese at 54 cms….
