And here are photos of the winner of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in 2012, Ch. Palacegarden Malachy:
The great “breed improvement” contests that have gone on for the past century have certainly done their magic.
What was once a pretty hardy little dog is now a little lion trying to be a marmoset.
It’s now so short-legged that it waddles around when it walks, and we’ve now seen the creation of the ultimate heat-retaining little dog that has both the extremely distorted respiratory/cooling system of the flat-faced dog and a thick undercoat of something we’d expect to see from the arctic.
I don’t know how sane people allowed this to happen, but my word, it is has.
