We´ve all been witness to ever-younger Scotties winning best of breed, groups and even winning places in BIS-finals of late.
What´s happening? Is all the older, more mature, competition crap? Are Scotties in general maturing more quickly than before? Or has the aesthetic ideal amongst our judging corps shifted - away from the breed standard - to a new, fresh approach?
I´ll grant you that bitches often mature sooner than boys, but I think this new trend of putting up (barely more than) pre-teens everywhere is scary. I don´t like it at all and I doubt if it can be for the breed´s best.
What do you think?
