I would like to thank the LKA committee for inviting me to judge Shih Tzu 2018, I would also like to thank my stewards for all their help and making it an enjoyable day.
Sadly I have to say coat before body and muscle is very evident in our breed. Lots of exhibits that caught my eye were disappointing when assessing them for this reason. Some so thin you could play a tune on their ribs. I am pleased to say white of eye was not as evident on the day as on previous occasions.
