Thank you to the exhibitors who entered and to the show committee for their hard work. To my trusty steward, Jim Murdoch, – thank you for being there and keeping the ring, and me, in order. As quoted by Audrey Dadds: “Type is the sum of those points that makes a dog look like his own breed.” In the Shih Tzu I am searching to find the correct outline with the tea-pot tail complimenting the head in balance, a sturdy dog with a broad and deep chest, good width to a strong underjaw and the chrysanthemum head. More exhibits are creeping in that, although immaculately presented and shown, more closely resemble the Lhasa Apso in balance, rib shape and tail carriage and these were placed accordingly for lacking in typical breed type. Please move your Shih Tzus at a correct speed for the breed. They are not in a race and running them too fast does nothing to show off good movement. By running young puppies at speed you will ruin the formation of their limbs for the future.

It was a very windy day but mainly dry. Always a challenge for exhibitors showing a coated breed in windy conditions but everyone coped well. General observations – size and balance are both quite variable. Mouths are an issue. I am not a mouth fanatic, per se, and I know that some breeders/breed specialists are not overly worried about finding a mouth that fits the standard. Whilst I can be forgiving of some mouth issues, and always take the whole of the dog into consideration, I do feel that if you do not take action soon at improving this aspect then you will lose the Shih Tzu head shape. A mouth of jumbled teeth is not just a mouth of jumbled teeth – the bigger issue is that the teeth are jumbled because the jaw is not wide enough to contain the incisors in as straight a line as possible with a squared jaw. If the mouth is not wide enough then you have a muzzle that is too narrow and loose the shape of the head overall. Toplines were also disappointing with many rising at the rear. Presentation was impeccable, as one comes to expect from this breed.
