This was a very sweet memory
I showed the sisters, Darla and Spanky as a brace at the Southern California Specialty show.
It was a huge show an entry of nearly 200 shih tzu/that day.
The show had been so quiet all day long. It was so you could have heard a pin drop.
Suddenly there was a huge burst of applause as soon as the girls went around the ring in their smooth gliding tandem.
Old time breeders came up with tears in their eyes and everyone remarked how beautiful they were.
