This was posted in the "too large" post by Marie. I thought more people might be able to comment and see the videos if it wasn't buried in her post and I didn't want to go too far off Marie's topic. So this is a repost...
If you have a hard time visualizing what a CHAMPION Chi should look like, take a look at these videos from Westminster last year.
This is 2009 video from the Westminster Dog Show, one of the most prestigious shows in the USA. Similar to Crufts. ALL these Chihuahua's are breed champions. These are nationally ranked dogs that have been invited to participate based on their ranking in the breed and how many dogs they have beaten. So truly... these are the BEST of BREED in both varieties.
Here are the long coats ...
Here are the short coats ...
I find that these dogs all resemble each other. They could have been cut from the same cookie cutter, so to speak. Why? Because they meet the breed standard for what a Chihuahua should look like.
Take a look at the best dogs in our breed!!
