Full Critique for Shih Tzu Club of Wales & West 2023
Judge : Mr Tony Moran
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|Firstly, I must thank the Club for this lovely invitation –it is always an honour for any non-specialist to be invited to do a club show. Thanks must also go to my excellent stewards. I was very impressed with the overall quality on the day – I was immersed in a sea of wonderful heads and excellent breed type and in so many classes I was splitting hairs between the winners. Both Open classes were a joy to judge and it was also refreshing to see so much quality coming through in the younger classes. The breed details that I hold dear, the beautiful head with the gorgeous large round dark eye. the warm, oriental expression, width the whole way through from chin to hips, the long, low outline with strong bone & substance, the high tail set and carriage and the haughty, smooth moving silhouette that should set this breed apart for all others, was available to me in abundance. I had a wonderful day and special thanks to all the exhibitors.|
