|The first thing I did was check in with your site. Wow, what beauties! Another fab job Ginnie ! Happy Thanksgiving to All ! Guard the turkey's if your Danes out there are anything like mine !
Love the National coverage!!!! Keep the show pictures coming!!! More! More!! Love it!! Chantel
Thank you, Ginnie, for the continuing picture show!!
The best part of your wonderful pictures is that I get to see some of the "action" while I was off doing something else. I also enjoy noting some of the people in the background. You bring out the essence of the dogs & handlers & the communications between them.
the pictures are spectacular....more, more, more
These dogs do not seem happy or excited. Why is that?
It is quite a challenge to teach some show dogs to remain poised and calm and dignified while in the ring. You really don't want them jumping all over the place. That makes it difficult for the judge to really view thier structure and get their hands on them if they are diplaying too much exuberance in the show ring. The handlers work at keeping the dogs still for the judges. Now....outside the ring....that's a different story!!!
We don't crop ears in Australia so I don't know what the rules are regarding "crop failures" in the US. Does a dropped ear count as a fault in showing?? It's just that some of these very beauitful dogs seem to have ears that aren't the perfect shape.
Wow, what fantastic photography, I admire all of your work!
Again, what you've captured is the intensity and concentration of both the handlers and the dogs, while exhibiting in the ring. Your pictures have made me feel as tho I'm ringside. Altho I wasn't there to see the other dogs and bitches who showed, the ones you highlited were magnificent. All very beautiful specimens of the breed.
Thank you, Ginnie, for bringing the National into our homes!
