Breed: Havanese

Firstly I'd like to thank the committee of Leeds championship show for inviting me to judge and be part of yet another successful year for the show. Secondly thanks to all exhibitors for their entries and support. I very much enjoyed my day, and was delighted with the quality of the havanese exhibited and the presentation of which they were turned out: natural, clean and tidy - nothing overdone, over scissored or exaggerated. 

MPD 1st Jeffords: Wizzizz Pick N' Mix, A quality 8 month cream sable of good substance, pleasing proportions and an expressive head with large dark almond eyes. A good quality and quantity of coat for his age. Covering the ring exceptionally well with the desired gait. BP 

2nd Grococks: Telzaro Cubanitos Handsome Boy From Havalag (Imp): Another quality and very promising youngster who pushed the winner hard. He moved cleanly around the ring showing off his wonderful outline and correct tail carriage. Lovely head with correct dentition, pleasing coat texture with a soft wave.
