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.

Puppy (3/2)

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.

Open (3/1)

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.
