How can you tell that your dog will win Best of Breed?
When he is the only specimen of his breed in the ring.
As of the time of printing the Judging Schedule there was only one Neapolitan Mastiff entered at this year’s show:
Ring ThreeJudge: Mrs. Robert D. Smith8:00 AM STEWARDS: Mrs. Susan Sprung; Mr. Randy Garren
1 - Neapolitan Mastiffs (1-0)13 - Tibetan Mastiffs (7-6)16 - Boxers (6-10)
I know in the past that I have made some disparaging remarks about the Mastini, but this just proves the point: there ain’t no such thing as an ugly puppy.
Or is it the exception that proves the rule?
In case you're keeping track of these things, there is only one English Toy Spaniel and one American Water Spaniel entered in their respective judging rings as well. The Neapolitan Mastiff is just so much fun to look at.For more information on the Neapolitan Mastiff: AKC, United States Neapolitan Mastiff Club.
