Multibreed dog shows aren't popularity contests. Once Best in Breed has been chosen for each breed, then it becomes merely a matter of how the judges feel about each entrant. How can one really say, "this Affenpinscher is a better Affenpinscer than that Old English Sheepdog is an Old English Sheepdog?"

Minor factoid: I understand that working Old English Sheepdogs commonly are shorn so they don't have to put up with all that hair.
