I’m taking a minute of editorial privilege during this extraordinary time to encourage you to help others where you can. Here’s what’s in front of my house right now.

I’ve contacted a few pet stores and Chewy.com to see if I can add some pet food to my inventory.
Please consider helping out, either by setting up your own little grocery or by sending a contribution to me via PayPal to [email protected] so I can keep this going.

There is a conflict of interest involving the judge and Colton’s ownership team. No one did anything wrong, they are just removing the possibility that anyone could claim the judge showed favoritism to a team with which he had a closer relationship than with other teams. The judge cannot recuse, so the dog must be excused.
The runner-up does not get to complete in Colton’s place; the Non-Sporting Group simply will not be represented in the ring.
