As of standings through October 31, 2006, BIS BISS Ch. Xeralane's Facing Controversy "Faith" has pre-qualified for entry in the 2007 Westminster Kennel Club Show by being in the Top 5 Breed points.

"Faith" still holds onto #4 Shih Tzu in National All Breed ranking and #5 in Breed points without being shown for a total of three months this year.

Many dogs are shown regularly every week; however, this is proof that a quality dog can rank high shown at only a fraction of American shows. It is the quality of wins that counts in the end; not the quantity.

July & Mid-August Update

Heat restrictions with airlines have made it impossible for us to fly out safely with our dogs and there have been absolutely no local shows.

Despite not being shown for two months, BIS BISS Ch. Xeralane's Facing Controversy "Faith" still holds onto #4 Shih Tzu in National  All Breed ranking and #5 in Breed points.

Many dogs are shown regularly every week; however, this is proof that a quality dog can rank high shown at only a fraction of American shows. It is the quality of wins that counts in the end; not the quantity.

Month of July

Time off from shows to overlook house renovations and to enjoy new Shih Tzu & Bichon litters.
