Question Do you think I could show her?

Here's a pic of her:



I'd like to know, seriously, if she's ... showable ^_^ It's a bit blurry, but you get the idea. I don't think she normally stands with her back legs that far apart ... I was fighting with her to get her to stand still, and I kinda just popped her up, and she stood looking at me funny.

It's hard to tell just from a picture, if you stacked her up it would be easier. From this shot though, she looks like she has a pretty nice head and stop, and good proportion with height/length. Her nose is a little bit long but the standard calls for moderately short and different judges have different opinions on how short moderate should be. I've seen some champions with quite long noses. The dog is judged on entire body too so if everything else is good she could still do well. You can always give it a try, see if you both enjoy it.

If you don't like conformation showing you can always try the other aspects like agility and obedience. I'm hoping to start training Cosette for agility in a few months.

I would love to do agility, but there aren't any training parks or anything around here

There was an article in the Chihuahua dog magazine I read a few months back about setting up your own agility course with cheap things from a hardware store to practice. If I can find it I'll post about it on the forum. That's what I want to do so I can practice since we don't have an agility class or anything here.

She is a cutie. Does she always hold her tail curled? This is the first thing I noticed. If you are in the states you can show anything you want. I would go to a couple shows take her along and have somone look at her. They would be able to let you know if it is worth the time and money to persue it. Good luck

You could try it but her tail and roached back are faults in the show ring. Her back may just be the picture. Here is what is says on the AKC website

Tail - Moderately long, carried sickle either up or out, or in a loop over the back, with tip just touching the back.
