Ok - so I will make the first comment. First of all I am sure some love that dog very much and probably spent thou$and$ on it. Let me quote a couple snippets from the "judge" who selected this furball as the BIS winner. Patricia Craige Trotter said.
"It was a show for the ages"
Wasabi was a tiny dog "that feels like he's 10 feet tall" - how does she know this?
As she weighed his merits against his breed and his six rivals, Trotter said, “he stood there like a lion.” - this is an insult to lions?
Really - can anyone in their right mind picture a Pekingese 10 feet tall and standing there like a lion?
There were many other fantastic dogs at the Westminster show which would have represented the dog world much better.
Ant this is why - I think the AKC does dogs owners in the USA a huge disservice.
