I started to show amy, last december in baby's class. We had 3 shows, so far, here in Portugal.
I saw many cavs above the standard limits and wining. I know that some males had 10kg and 11 kg (22-24 lbs). And I think that they are most likely to be notested, just because they're bigger.
Amy is almost 6 kg (13lbs) and female, so that is not a very fair competition for her .
But she's only 9 months. However I like her small (and toy!) and I will not over feed her just to grow for shows!
She feets on my lap, but not on my mum's lap anymore!
In my personal opinion, if we have toy dogs, we should keep then small (to medium, in cavs, that might be the 8 kg). I bought a toy, I didn't bought a medium sized dog.
