Thank you for this post. I agree with you 100%. I have a Parson Russell Terrier, and in this breed, I would say about half of the main show breeders in the US have stopped docking their dogs, and they get very angry when judges don't put their dogs up. The breed standard clearly states that the tail is supposed to be docked level with the top of the head. I on the other hand, have the opposite problem, because the lady who bred my dog had the vet dock the tails and he took them all way too short. I still think that between docking and not docking, taking the tail too short is the lesser offence.
