WOW Phyllis. that was an eye opener on not getting points when you get a Select ....then why even hand them out if they aren't going to mark the box?

Yes, the judges' book is marked with OwnerHandler . Its a bit less
obvious, more like an asterisk or some such but yes,the judge would
know who is an owner handler.
> On another matter, recently had a judge who withheld select from very nice group of specials. From what I heard he just didn't believe in giving select. Has anyone else had this experience? What do you think?
When they first introduced the Gr Champion series, not a lot of
advance info had been given, judges didn't understand it, stewards
didn't understand it and a lot of judges either didn't give select
because they hated the idea or in one case out here, one judge thought
that the select ribbons went to all the winners...even WD and WB, and
we were out of select ribbons in his ring by 10 am!
Since its the judges' ring to do with as he pleases then if he chooses
to award no selects, he chooses to award no selects. That's just how
it goes. They can also hand out the ribbons and not mark the box on
their book that asks...are these dogs worthy of Grand Champion points
also. That way, you get a ribbon, but still not GCh points.
