White Rose Canine Society
Siberian Huskies – Judge James G Heaton (VOLKADEN)
Firstly, I would like to thank the committee of White Rose Canine Society for giving me my first judging appointment. I enjoyed my day and your generous hospitality, I highly recommend the pie and peas. My steward was a great help and support and guided me through my first appointment. The ring size was reasonable, although it would have been nicer to have a slightly larger ring to assess the movement of this breed. Thank you also to everyone who entered and attended on the day, it was an honour to judge such a high quality entry.
1st Cooper’s Jansckoo’s Strenght N Honour. 11 months, g/w puppy bitch. Feminine with a lovely foxy head, well set ears and correct eyes. Well-muscled with correct angulation front and rear, level topline, arched loin and nicely angled croup which translated into an elegant and effortless movement. Initially a little timid whilst being gone over, she will hopefully gain confidence over time. This puppy shows a lot of quality and promise. I look forward to seeing the adult she matures into. BOB, BPIB, Working Group 3 and Working Group Puppy 1.
Post Graduate (6/1)
1st Cruden & Kaye’s Shamsky Ee’lahn Vallay. 2 year old piebald bitch. Nice head with well set ears that she used to her advantage. Correct angulation, good length of leg, level topline and well muscled. Took a while to settle on the move but once she did she was graceful with good reach and drive.
2nd Cooper’s Jansckoo’s Fortitude. 11 month old g/w puppy dog. Littermate to BOB & BPIB. Masculine head with correct almond shaped eyes set obliquely, happy playful expression. Well-muscled with correct build and angulation for his age. Another excellent mover but not as light on his feet as 1.
3rd Redwood’s Norste Dogwood.
1st Seward’s Forstal’s Crystal with Elleonia JW. 2 year old piebald bitch. Elegant head . Alert ears and pretty almond shape eyes. She was well-conditioned and had nice angulation, level topline, slightly arched over loin and nice croup. Her movement was smooth and elegant showing good reach and drive.
2nd Cruden & Kaye’s Amical Betty Boop for Shamsky. 5 year old b/w bitch. Pretty head with correct eyes and ears. Correctly constructed with good angulation. Moved well with good reach but lacked a little drive.
