Open Show 2017
Sunday 9th April 2017
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the club for inviting me to judge and the exhibitors for such a lovely entry of dogs. We had a beautiful sunny day and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. I had a lovely time and my two stewards kept things running smoothly for me and I wish this club all the best for the future.
Minor Puppy Dog
1st Whisperdown’s Tango – Lovely puppy who caught my eye as soon as he entered the ring. He is so smart and clean in outline for his age. Lovely head but it still has to develop, dark eye, good pigment, well set ears, moved sound and very together for his age and worked with his handler. Couldn’t go past him and was delighted to award him BEST PUPPY IN SHOW.
2nd Bergmann Smart Alliance – Slightly longer in outline than 1, rear end still to develop and feet could be tighter but promising baby.
1st Bevanray Reggie – Well off young male for size and height, his front just needs to develop a bit more but he has a strong rear. Nice head, dark eye and pigment, sound mover with firm topline which held on the move and was very well handled.
2nd Westfalen Hot Fuzz – Smaller male than 1 but full of type, nice in outline but would like a bit more chest, good mover excellent markings.
1st Rockstarotts Mini Clubman – Lovely male with great angles front and rear, good chest and attractive head dark eye and good pigment. Sound mover. Great condition and well handled.

Post Graduate Dog
1st Pendley Ivanhoe – Lovely male of excellent breed type. Strong attractive male head but eyes could be darker to help with the expression. Strong front and rear. Clean outline. Excellent tail.

Lovely strong well defined head that is clean without exaggeration or wrinkle, ears are well set, dark eye, great substance and bone, excellent front and rear, sound powerful mover who out moved every dog there on the day and thoroughly deserved his BEST IN SHOW. Very well handled and also admired his sound temperament as he flirted with the RBIS female.
Minor Puppy Bitch
1st Canaza Summer Dream – Beautiful puppy bitch who I couldn’t take my eye off, full of breed type, very strong in head for one so young just am slightly concerned she could be overdone when she matures but at the minute she is a very exciting prospect.
