This comes in part from all the show vs working threads... the issue with show dogs that always crops up is the overdoneness of some breeds. Why don't people breed to moderation? Why does it always seem that people think more extreme is better? Giant, fat labs, Irish Setters with 30lbs of fur, Bulldogs, etc. I don't think its written anywhere in the standard of the setter that it should have the most fur possible. With the exception of some breeds (mostly sighthounds) I can't see how some moderation couldn't help things. Note: This is presented in all seriousness, and not intended to incite another 40 pages of showdog vs working dog.
