Sandie, you're pretty much right-- as usual. I'm looking at the AKC standard right now. It says for the bichon that "The body from the forward most point of the chest to the point of rump is one-quarter longer than the height at the withers. The body from the withers to lowest point of chest represents half
the distance from withers to ground." It's very different from the poodle, for which the length from breastbone to rump is supposed to approximate the height at the withers.
