was delighted to be asked to judge the breed at this show and was not
disappointed with the entry and overall the quality of exhibits. Asked by the
kennel club to observe and report on breed highlighted problems I did not find
undue issues within the variety at the time of judging. I was happy that
although a few entries were slightly over the standard none were presented
underweight or in poor condition. A lot of dirty teeth which is just a lack of
attention to correct presentation and should be noted by all exhibitors. Coats
were all good. Several exhibits appear to be short in rib and although
prominence and depth of keel was in general good some did not follow through
with a good length of ribbing. Hind quarters were OK overall exhibitors should
continue to strive for excellent hind quarter angulation which lends itself to
the correct drive behind. Eyes were good and although some heads were either a
little domed and a few a little broad and plain which should be watched in
breeding programmes, I feel that it is important that the overall construction
and movement are far more important and I made my judgements accordingly.
Toplines were good on all my winning exhibits and this should be another point
of note in breeding programmes. If anyone has exhibited under me before they
should know that I like to move all exhibits a lot as I believe a huge amount
more can be understood about construction of each dog on watching them on the
move rather than judging purely stacked – free standing exhibits have nothing to
hide. My preference - long, low and level please.
Veteran Dog/Bitch – 4 entries (1 absent)
Herrington’s CH Kathington Coeur De Lion -
Black /Tan dog of nice proportions, great overall balance, good shoulders,
keel and ribbing nice hind angulation, moved well. An easy winner.

Mitchell’s Bronia Stefano - Lovely B/T Great
all round construction great front & h/q angulation good ribbing level
topline held at all times.
Muggleton’s Mosiarto Mister Valentine – Less
mature red lacking the angulation in both shoulder placement and hind
quarters to winner.

– Another very nice dog who will be a winner in the future just preferred
front shoulder placement and hind angulation of winner.

Williams Wilmerella Wells Fargo – B/T taller
type however preferred the overall balance and movement to 2nd.
Shutt’s Donnadoon Waterloo Sunset – Nice shaded
red, long low and level and a very different type to winner – a hard
decision to split these two however preferred the winner on the move.

Fieke’s Lustrum Batchelor Boy – lovely
extremely well balanced smaller type – great to go over on the table – great

low and level!

Lovely dog to go over on the table with great balance on the day not the
hind movement of winner.

best balanced dog on the day, very pleased to award him the CC & BOB,
delighted to discover that this made him up to Champion on the day – many
Fossett & Kent’s Lokmadi A Boy Named Sue –
Another lovely dog in an excellent class of exhibits – great overall type,

a little more hindquarter angulation.
Ergis & Melbourne’s Siouxline Rapunzel with
Open Bitch – 5 entries (2 absent)
This class I found to be a little disappointing
Andison & Peel’s Clentry Golddigga – Nicely put
together red with great outline for me did not hold this on the move but was
a little overweight on the day – shame.

bitch – for me a little short in body and not the hindquarter angulation to
give overall balance.
