I would like to thank everyone who travelled for this show, your entries were much appreciated. I must also apologise for the time constraints put upon us, by the late start. Some excellent dogs, mouths were very mixed, some excellent, some jumbled and a few narrow. Some exhibitors need to pay more attention to top knots. This can make or break an expression. Placement of shoulders always has an enormous effect on front movement, well laid back shoulders gives a reach at the front, this was lacking in some exhibits.
I would like to thank all the exhibitors. I considered it a privilege to go over your dogs. I was very
happy with my line ups, and delighted with my CC and Res CC winners. Careful consideration leads
me to ask Shih Tzu enthusiasts to consider, that we should always be aiming for a dog that is not too
tall on leg. It is the short leg, slightly longer back, correct head and tail carriage than gives the correct
portions and balance of the Shih Tzu. To welcome the short leg, laid back shoulders and rear
angulation are essential, thus allowing extension to front movement and propulsion from the
rear, giving us a galleon in full sail. A description of correct movement, from the past.
