based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|There was a time in my life when I was almost obsessed with this wonderful breed but sadly for various reasons my personal involvement was only short lived. However, I have followed the breed with interest ever since and I have been fortunate enough to judge them on many occasions in most countries in the world. Although the days of huge entries and domineering kennels are a thing of the past the quality of Shih Tzu’s in the UK is still high and the best could easily compete anywhere. In recent years the introduction of imported stock has been only too tempting and certainly can be beneficial providing the sole aim is to improve and preserve true classical breed-type.|
