Side 92 - Symmetry. — Symmetry and general appearance, decidedly square and cobby. A lean, leggy pug and a dog with short legs and a long body are equally objectionable. Size and Condition. — The pug should be multum in parvo, but this condensation (if the word may be used) should be shown by compactness of form, wellknit proportions, and hardness of developed muscle. Weight from 13 Ibs.
Side 84 - The lower jaw must be wide between its branches, leaving plenty of space for the tongue and for the attachment of the lower lips, which should completely conceal the teeth. It should also be turned up or
Side 85 - Blenheim there should be a profuse mane, extending well down in the front of the chest. The feather should be well displayed on the ears and feet, where it is so long as to give the appearance of their being webbed. It is also carried well up the backs of the legs. In the King Charles the feather on the ears is very long and profuse, exceeding that of the Blenheim by an inch or more. The feather on the tail (which is cut to the length of about 3^ ins. to 4 ins.) should be silky, and from 5 ins. to...
Side 82 - Properly speaking, there should be two coats, an under and over coat, the one a soft, fluffy undercoat, the other a long, perfectly straight, and glistening coat, covering the whole of the body, being very abundant round the neck and forepart of the shoulders and chest, where it should form a frill of profuse standing-off straight hair, extending over the shoulders, as previously described. The hindquarters, like those of the Collie, should be similarly clad with long hair or feathering from the...
Side 97 - Cut to medium length ; with plenty of hair, darker blue in colour than the rest of the body, especially at the end of the tail, and carried a little higher than the level of the back. TAN.
Side 82 - Toy varieties the skull may be rather rounder), large in proportion to the muzzle, which should finish rather fine and be free from lippiness. The teeth should be level, and on no account undershot. The head in its profile may exhibit a little " stop," which, however, must not be too pronounced, and the hair on head and face must be smooth or short-coated.
Side 84 - HEAD. — Should be well domed, and in good specimens is absolutely semi-globular, sometimes even extending beyond the half-circle, and absolutely projecting over the eyes, so as nearly to meet the upturned nose.
Side 96 - ... an important air. Although the frame is hidden beneath a mantle of hair, the general outline should be such as to suggest the existence of a vigorous and wellproportioned body. Head. — Should be rather small and flat, not too prominent or round in the skull ; rather broad at the muzzle...
Side 102 - The dogs should be either black and white or red and white, ie, parti-coloured. The term red includes all shades of sable, brindle, lemon, and orange, but the brighter and clearer the red, the better. The white should be clear white, and the colour, whether black or red, should be evenly distributed patches over the body, cheeks, and ears.
Side 98 - Rather small and of a good shape, the toes well arched, pads thick and hard. Legs.— Fore set straight from shoulder, with plenty of bone and muscle ; hindlegs very muscular and well bent, with the hocks well let down. Tail. — Set on rather high, well carried, never curled, or carried over back. Coat. — Very profuse, and of good, hard texture ; if corded, hanging in tight, even cords ; if non-corded, Photo lyi .
