Aphrodite, I have to tell you something. I really think that CJ is a very lovely b*tch, but I still don't think she stands up to CH Royal Tudor's Wild as the Wind, or CH Toledobe's Serenghetti (sp). I have used Carissa DeMilta's Mother, Gwen, as a handler, in the past. Carissa (Rissa) is CJ's handler. Another fantastic handler is Diego Garcia. I believe he handled the Boxer in the Group ring. Anyone who knows ME, knows that I know how great Dobermans *can* be! I don't have a show dog at all anymore, let alone a beautiful Dobe. (I'm kind of working on that, right now) I think my Bulldog would enjoy showing, but she is FAR from meeting the standard. Of course, you can't show a mutt (which I also have), but if you could, he would do pretty good as long as our cat "Ozzy" was the bait. lol
Add: I wanted to just add a couple other things about the Dobe judging. First off, this judge is a Provisional (sp) judge who has only judged 8 times total. I don't have a clue why they chose her. Second of all: Watch the very first Dobe shown in the video link you provided......the one where the handler has a sort of ruffle around the bottom of her skirt. WELL, that dog should have NEVER even been there. It has TERRIBLE movement and IMO should NOT even be a CH.
