American Champion Falling Stars Inspiration (Spire)

Spire is SOOOO cute, cute as a button as some may say. She should have finished in record time, however she took a very long time to finish because she looks so small. The funny thing is she weighs 10 pounds and is within the height requirement for Shih Tzu. She looks small but weighs more than she looks, which is exactly what a Shih Tzu is supposed to be like. The problem is there are too many tubular dogs with lots of coat to cover up for their lack of body that judges have been used to seeing dogs that are not correct. Small is not bad! It is high time judges quit judging on size alone and judge the overall dimensions of the dog.
