Somebody has a size fixation?

(shrug) It's OK, for a dog that looks like a Tribble. That's literally just for show, though. They're not normally that floofy.

"Best"

There are no winners at Westminster. BIS was won by a dog with four co owners, investors, backers. A dog so inbred you have to admire the level of commitment to inbreeding to produce this thing. A dog that can't walk without overheating and will likely die before the age of 10 despite living with experts under the best care.

Why is a dog that originated in China named after Japanese horseradish?

For some reason I want to find that pup a nice mud puddle to go crazy in.  The owner would probably stroke out though.

The dogs that win are a reflection of the kind of people who enter their pets in dog shows.

These aren't pets.  They're investments, a life's work or both.  None of them are pets.

WTF, there's only a few dogs around to breed?  6 shared ancestors seems insane

There will never be a dog that wins at a dog show that I will not look at and go - aww so cute! Not one. Even Westminister's obsession with terriers aside, all dogs are cute. Whether it is a dog show, puppy bowl, my neighborhood gay pride dog parade...

I will also go "what a shame that one did not win" for every other dog up there. Again because I find all dogs cute.

That Wasabi dog looks like an ambulatory wig and I find him adorably odd and very fabulous. I mean a dog whose job was to warm the extremities of royalty is going to be at least a little floofy. It is his arrogant waddle that gets me.

But I still prefer Crufts to Westminister. Less primping.

That's not a dog. It's a bad wig.

Pekes are not a super rare breed. This is done because this is textbook intensive line breeding. I do raise animals and I do practice linebreeding with them, but I would never dream of linebreeding dogs like this - the highest COI I ever dealt with was under 7%. I couldn't find the calculated COI on this dog but it's has be be up there with highly inbred lab mice. 

No one cares if you breed a particularly dumb pig with a bad temperament or a chicken that only produces shell-less eggs. The mistakes taste the same next to the potatoes.  Breed an unhealthy dog that breathes like it's being waterboarded and will be dead at half it's normal pet lifespan and it's really hard to claim this process is about breeding better dogs or that you're doing right by the dogs.

I don't know much about dog breeding, but I do know horses.  In the thoroughbred world, the winner would be referred to as being "inbred 2X3" (and incidentally, also 3x3).  Most people, though, would say that's waaaay too close.  A 4x5 (or even better, 5x5) cross is preferred.
