The biggest disappointment of the day for me was the German Shepherd who was crowned the Best of Breed. Really, I thought we had moved on from backs like playground slides. This conformation will only lead to hip displasia, spinal problems and an early death due to the inability to walk. I actually now rarely see GSDs this extreme in the 'real world' and was super surprised, and really sad, to see that they are alive and well in the show ring. Which just goes to show how far removed it is from reality.
