My borzois are entered next weekend and the entry is 3 Borzoi 1-1-1-0. Both of the regular class dogs are mine. My question is will there be a possibility of a point? I've never shown with an entry this small. Thanks! :)
Pedigree indicates what an animal should be. Conformation indicates what an animal appears to be. But performance indicates what an animal actually is.
The ONLY way a point would be possible would be if your class male, beat the Best of Breed entered male and that is quite uncommon. Not impossible for a class dog to go BOB over a special but it isn't easy. The special is there to earn breed rank and I think sometimes judges (right or wrong, more wrong than anything)take that into consideration when awarding Best of Breed since it doesn't usually do a class dog that much good to actually go to the group ring. They favor specials to go to the group ring to try and earn their rank. Didn't say it was right, just said it's what happens.
And if the moon and stars aligned correctly and your boy went BOB, it would just be a single point.
Your female, pretty much no points possible. If you go have fun, where's the show? I'm lucky, my breed rarely has an issue with getting numbers.
