I have compiled charts of actual data from that Westminster historical web page. Sadly, I could not figure out how to post them to biggify so you will need keen eyesight to read the labels, but trust me, its all true.
Let's start with the group judging, shall we? In the herding group, the German Shepherd wins most of the time. And if a corgi wins, it is always a Pembroke.
In the Toy group (which I actually never watch), the Pekingese wins twice as often as the next most winningest doggie (the Pomeranian). Hounds? If you aren't a Greyhound or Afghan don't even bother to show up.
For Non-Sporting doggies, if you aren't a poodle, forget about it. Between the normal poodle and the miniature, they've got that group all sewn up. Plus the poodles are almost never black or silver or apricot or anything other than white with foo foo haircuts.
For Sporting dogs they always go with the Pointer (well, duh, its on their logo) or sometimes a Springer Spaniel. Nary a labradog in sight.
But wait, it gets worse. Now my brother, Floyd (Eastwinds Comfortably Numb) went to Westminster last year. And even though he is not nearly as handsome as myself, he's a fine specimen.
He should have called me first. He would have been better served coming to the estate for some family bonding. Because even though the mastiff is just about one of the oldest breeds ever and like totally huge and handsome, we NEVER WIN! That's right! In like 10,345 years of Westminster a Mastiff has never won best in group.
Who wins the Working Group? Boxers, Boxers, and More Boxers! 23 times the Boxer has won!
OK, that's best in group, but what about Best in Show? Its those pesky Terriers!!! Terriers take Best in Show almost half the time!Yuh, and not just any terrier, but almost always a Wire Fox Terrier!
Mango Man, you say, this is an outrage! We thought Westminster judged each group against the breed standard. How is it possible that the winners are so skewed? Surely terriers are not better bred than the rest of us.
To which I answer, no, dear friends, the problem is that the whole show is rigged. As I revealed just one year ago, the entire tech crew is comprised of WFTs.
Hide your eyes if you are unprepared for a horrific photo of corruption in the world of dog shows, because here is an actual photo of this year's judges.
Need I say more?
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
