    Wow! I agree with witholding if there are not good dogs, but I find it hard to believe in this situation. That many dogs have bad movement?! The whole thing seems a little weird and I wouldn't have shown under her if I was you either.

    She is not a judge I would have entered under if she had been the scheduled judge and will most certainly never give her an entry again. People are saying she will not be given another judging appointment as people will not give her entries but with whippet entries being so high I very much doubt 9 people not entering their dogs would mae much difference to the entry figures. I have even had judges message me telling me to ignore this judge and not to give up as there is nothing wrong with my dog.

    At the end of the day it is each judges own interpretation of the breed standard my boy hadonly done 2 champ shows before this show as I have had a bad foot and couldnt run with him properly. This was the first time I wasn't hindering his movement maybe if I had hobbled round the ring lie I had done previously my dog might have got placed lol

    If she isn't even a judge then no way would I enter under her. I don't feel that she should even be judging since she probably wouldn't know what to look for. To judge at these shows do you have to have any experience or education on a breed?

    I thought she was judge, due to your previous post. Was she merely allowed to judge because the scheduled judge was not able to judge? Seems everyone but one dog got ripped off, both money wise and in a legit critique of their dogs.

    She is a judge just not a judge I would have entered under normally, to judge you have to be a qualified judge approved by the KC they can't just get anyone to judge. She is a breed specialist but not a judge who I rate very highly and certianly not a judge whoI would have wasted time and money on if she had been the original judge. Apparently the judge had been changed way before the entries closed but I had already entered and had not seen or heard there had been a judge change but even if I had I wouldn't have got my money back. The original judge couldn't judge due to a family bereavment

    I really think if they change the judge to one you don't like or one you can't enter under because you have already won something then you should be entitled to your money back. It seems a lot of judges were changed that day. We had a replacement judge and my friend also had a replacement judge and couldn't go because her dog had already won under that judge.

    I think if the judge has changed and the new judge bred you can get your money back. We had it this year at crufts after spending half the summer trying to qualify Peter for crufts I then diecovered his breeder had had her judging appointment bought forward she was supposed to be judging in 2018 so I had planned on not doing champ shows this year only to discover I couldn't take him this year.

    I'm also under the belief if you get 3 RCC's then you should be able to exchange them for a CC but perhaps that's just me.

    So update from last couple of shows.....

    Once again male took two 1st, a 3rd and Best of Show. My daughter got best junior handler, she was super happy. The next show two 1st and another Best of Show! Overall for that show we ended up doing well, four 1st, three 2nds and two 3rds and my daughter got 3rd place in junior handling. I think I'm done for the year, out of 45 times in ring regular classes placed 40 times with 11 First Place, 14 Second Place, 15 Third Place.

    Last saturday we went to Stafford open show with Peter Phoenix Buck and Bear

    Peter and Phoenix were both 3rd in their classes with a judge that didn't like brindles and basicaly if a fawn had gone into the ring with 3 legs it would still have won if it was the only fawn in the class.

    Nothing for Buck in a massive AV veteran toy and only being 7 earlier this year he is very much the baby of the veteran classes

    Bear was the little star even though he was worried by 2 big dogs barking nearby and kept putting his tail down he still got 2 x 1st in AVNSC utility post grad and somehow we mangaed to win adult handler together
