based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|An excellent entry and a lovely day. I have been privileged to judge this breed quite extensively around the world, and I have often been concerned with the type-drift away from the typically sturdy, low to ground British breed type that to me is essential. Yes, quite a few of those not so typical dogs were present on this day as well, so beware! But my overall assessment was that it was lovely to encounter so many true to British-type Shih Tzus. I was most impressed by the line-up for the bitch CC and could have awarded several CCs in that sex. Thank you for the honour and privilege to go over so many outstanding specimen.|
