now I see it's on Faux SPORTS1, which does NOT appear to be in my DirecTV package. DAMN!

2. They stink in coverage......I really dont think its EVER been on faux sports.

They do sports really pretty good, but ick, not the elegant dog show.

9. Crap!

Dogs are still being forced by humans to perform for some arbitrary distinction of somehow being the best in the world, encouraging massive in-breeding to keep whatever breeds are made popular each year, pure, creating genetic diseases that shorten their lives as well as enjoyment of said lives.

11. I don't think there are many mutts left

Everyone seems to know what their dogs lineage is, and what used to be a mutt is now a Doberlabradoodle.

In fact, this was the marketing ploy of an animal shelter in South America (I think). You don't have a mutt - you have a dog with a unique lineage. It worked too.

As for what I said before... it's pretty much institutionalized animal abuse.

12. Ok, so I was wrong with talking about Shannon Sharpe, NOT Sterling in the dog show....

turns out Shannon is a fanatic about the competition.....

13. It Used To Be On USA Network

It was such a big deal back then that they would reschedule WWE shows to accommodate the doggies.

My puppy loves for me to have that on, but there was space stuff on the Science Channel last night, so only saw bits and pieces.

14. The commentary was beyond inane, but the coverage was actually better!

They spent time on each breed, which wasn't done in the past. Whoever had it the past few years would skip over many breeds. I was delighted to see the Cardigan Welsh corgi finishing second in Herding!!

They also showed the rarer and "newer" AKC breeds, which was informative. Love that Pumi!!
Could they be any cuter??!!
