Champs Stats (in case you are obsessive like me)
So yeah, for a person who stinks at math, I sure am obsessive about numbers....
That's a breakdown of the divisions at Champs this year and how many dogs from each group would be pulled into the finals based on whatever number Sharon decides to go with. I've heard people say anything from 15% to 30%, but yesterday in the forum Sharon made a comment about the top 1/3 being invited into the finals.
I don't know, that seems extraordinarily high, don't you think? We're talking over 70 dogs and I don't feel like it's gone on that long in past years that I've attended. And we aren't even including the Silver and Super Stakes dogs because those numbers have not been posted on the forum that I'm aware of.
So yeah. Who knows. But just in case you were curious, here you go. :o)
Luke's class is the largest with 37 dogs. Our 16" Vet/JH class was one of the largest in 2011, so it appears that all of our dogs are getting older and dropping down into Skilled. lol I believe Secret's class has shrunk a bit -- probably from a few of the old 16" dogs aging into Veteran status. I believe the number in Kaiser's division is very similar to last time, although I don't recognize too many dogs from 2011.
Only ONE MORE WEEK to obsess!
