Judge Carol Says AHHHHHH

Betty's white English Angora buck Chase had his glory days. When he was in full coat, he won 32 legs of which quite a few came from judge Carol. For some inexplicable reason, Chase had a "thing" for Carol: he would lunge or show his teeth whenever Carol reached for him while he would not exhibit such behavior to anyone else.

Chase and judge Carol had not seen each other on the show table for at least six months. One would not expect a rabbit to have a good long term memory.

Guess what, as soon as judge Carol's hand reaches for the judging coop, Chase lunges and shows his teeth.

Judge Carol says, "Ahhhhhhhhhh, you are such a bad boy!"

Judge Carol has far better time with the girls; in this picture, she is trying to determine the Best of Breed between Lilianna (white) and Lucianna.

Judge Carol judges French Angora with Gabrielle taking down the comments while Dominique looks on.

Dominique and Elsa are listening to judge Carol's comments.

It's very sweet of both of them.
