The future Star at 15 months

RICKY, a rich red-gold Shih Tzu, finished his Championship at 18 months of age, came home for some R & R, then returned to the show ring a couple of months later - promptly winning "Toy Group 2"  his first trip into the group ring.

Retired July, 1999: RICKY ranked # 6 Shih Tzu in the country at the time, according to TOP NOTCH TOYS magazine.
