Looks triumph over personality Print E-mail

Crufts!  A show that attracts - or repels - dog lovers around the world.  Last night was the hound class.  Who could forget the sight of that beautiful, elegant Afghan?  This is an ancient breed dating back to the Egyptian pharaohs, bred to hunt with falcons in the harsh mountains of Afghanistan.  So we viewed with unease the shampooed, conditioned, combed example prancing round the show ring.  Is this really how a working breed should show itself off?  The same goes for all hounds, gun dogs, sheep dogs etc.  The problem with Crufts is that it is all about appearance - not temperament.  Even the Miss World competitions tried to move on from just bathing suit clad girls to those with some of personality!
