I am an "other."
I think that there should be a breed standard and people should do their best to stay within it, but if they have a dog that is exceptional in many ways, and only a minor variance, like 1/2 inch over or under standard height, one should not throw out the baby with the bath water.
Of course there are standards, and each can be interpreted many ways. We will not ever all agree on how it should be interpreted.
