MessageSujet: which aspects of their morphology useful for function is still respected in dog show?   Dim 3 Jan 2016 - 2:50

this is a question I've asked myself watching these pictures on facebook, a galguero published them and I feel like these galgos are champions selected for some upcoming competition event.

these are the aspects of their morphology I focused on:

1°) no tail on the ground
2°) no shoulder higher than the loin and, except for two of them, shoulder are even lower than the loin
3°) no over-stretched rear angulation, all are moderated
4°) the overall construction and size, for both females and males is light, not heavy, and is with moderate high, they are not tall
5°) no sexual dystrophy: the only way to distinguish male from female are the genitals.
6°) different kinds of head-type, but no one got what I call the "borzoi-head type" (only two cranial lines with no stop, with only one angle between crania and muzzle)

































now I am asking the questions: why the heck, judges still get preferences for endless tail, for borzoi-head type, for big, tall, heavy males (yet, not putting them BOB if a female is entered same day) and why do they not sanction faults as too stretched rear angulations, too tall, wrong top line and high shoulders?

These characteristics are not what the standard asks and they obviously not advantage for the function.

I suppose that these are the galgos that are representing for the Copa del Rey which will take place in the next days.

The quality of the participating galgos (following the standard) was getting better during the last years, because several males with a good morphology were used by the hunters for breeding. In the past, there were more greygos than galgos in the competitions.

I suppose judges don't know well enought the galgo standard and let them mystified by spectacular dogs that flatter the eye :
- long tails because for most of peaple a galgo is only a tail touching the ground (that is not in the standard)
- wrong angulations and diving top back line because it gives spectacular movement
- big dogs to occupate space on the show ring and big males because a male must be virile Laughing
- for the head I don't know why they want to see borzoi heads, may be a trend.

show kills the breeds, as we can see for the poor german sheperd and so many others.
