But some of them have no teeth.
My guess is that perhaps there may be an alternate view that a dog with primitive detention that loses teeth at an early age may be considered a "health issue" by some outside the breed. And its only a guess but no other breed feature I can identify would promote veterinary interest
Epilation for show ring preparation was what Jemima Harrison had in her sights.
Good grief what a load of tripe
Why? To the general public, epilation for a dog isn't normal.
We are talking here about Vetting out animals that have serious health and conformation issues that need addressing, I don't think hair removal for the show ring really qualifies no matter how odd the public find it.
But isn't the point that these dogs are good examples of their breed? Which should mean they don't need to be altered in any way to win?
A whole different topic from this we could make a list a mile long of breeds that take show preparation to the extreme, but that does not make them unhealthy and unsound.
No, you're right on that one Crisovar.
