LICHFIELD CANINE SOCIETY 28TH JANUARY 2017

Thank you to the Committee for inviting me to Judge at their Open Show. Grateful thanks also to my lovely Stewards Andy & Sue. Thank you also to the Exhibitor’s for entering under me and for their sporting reactions to my placing’s.

German Shepherd Puppy: 2/2 1st Holden’s Strco Dark Knight Black & Tan Dog. 6 months. Very much a baby but with a lot of promise. Lovely head and kind expression, dark eye, erect ear carriage. Well off for bone, firm level top line. Pleasing length of neck onto well angulated shoulders. Excellent angles front & rear, although needing to tighten behind which will come with maturity. BPIB please to see him awarded Puppy Group 4 2nd McEvilly’s Ishka Aus Silkenwood Black & Gold Bitch. 10 months. Pretty feminine head, nice dark eye, erect ear carriage. Harder type to 1st in good condition. Nice length of neck onto well placed shoulders. Very unsettled which affected both her movement and profile.

Post Graduate: 1/2 1st Pryddererch’s Droyale Leading Man Sable Dog. 18 months. Pleasing in profile, good conformation throughout. Handsome head, nice dark eye, pleasing expression. Well set ears which he used well. Strong in bone and maturing in body. Balanced angulation in front and rear which showed whilst on the move. Moved with power and purpose. Firm level topline. One to watch in the future. Pleased to award him Reserve Best of Breed.

Open: 3/3 1st Haine’s Padawan Overnight Fame ScHm Black & Gold Dog. 6yrs. One I have admired from the ringside, I wasn’t disappointed when I finally got my hands on him. A quality dog with great conformation and breed charactersitics. Typical handsome head, pleasing gentle expression. Outstanding in profile, correct angles, firm level topline which he held on the move. Moved with purpose and sound at all angles. Presented in excellent condition. My Best of Breed and pleased to see him shortlisted in a huge Pastoral Group. 2nd Strange’s Strco Back to the Future. Sable Dog. 2yrs. Masculine head, pleasing dark eye. Well off for bone, mature body. True in front, good fore-chest and shoulder angles. Correct length of body to height. Unsettled in movement but this did not distract me to his qualities. 3rd Jefford’s Zakasia Zena at Zekanthi Black & Gold Bitch. 8yrs. Feminine head. Nice dark eye. Erect ear carriage. Good lay of shoulder, slightly steep in the upper arm. Nice temperament.
