I always root for the Corgi.

I have a Bichon. The number of hours required to make him look like that would be insane. Of course, I side with the Judge :)

I have a friend who always roots for the Corgi like you. We have a bichon/poodle mix, but we never made him have the Chia pet look.

I see a few of these dogs now and then on my walk with my mutt. Yappy little things, a lot of false bravado, kind of like a chihuahua.

Bichons make good pets, but it should be a requirement of every show that the winner at least *look* like a dog, not a cotton ball with a thyroid condition.

Apparently, some of these show dogs are owned by a group of people....so the burden is not that great for one owner.

I saw one of those at the gift shop in the hospital. I opted for the puffin though... more colorful.

I have a bichon. He has his own nanny too so a little high maintenance. I just showed him the winners’ picture and he took notice!

They should have a ‘rescued’ category. Best dog you could find.

I always root for the working dogs and the herders. It pains me when the little foofoo dogs win.
