Scottish Kennel Club

Breed: Bull Terrier

I would like to thank the Scottish Kennel Club Committee for inviting me to judge at their Championship Show. It is a lovely venue and unlike when I previously showed there, the rings are now inside. With the Scottish weather being so contrary, it is little wonder that judging now takes place under cover but the day was lovely and the exhibitors were probably grateful for the shade. I would also like to thank my most efficient ring stewards, Gillian and Alec for all their help. The entry was pretty good at 35 but with 13 absent on the day. The overall quality was very good and I was more than happy with my CC and RCC winners.

Class 591 Puppy Dog (1) (0 absent)

1st. Dodd & Rowlands’ Bluepoint Patchogue – 9 month old white dog with a Tri coloured eye patch and ear marking. Lovely smooth profile to head with well-placed ears. Good mouth. Short backed, mature bodylines, movement a bit close from behind. Would have liked a bit more angulation to hindquarters and his front feet turned out a touch. Otherwise a very pleasing, typy dog. Best Puppy Dog.

A really, super, well-made dog teeming with quality, and with a lovely temperament, Presented in tip top condition and beautifully handled. Still just a baby, he can only get better. DCC & BOB.

2nd. Hedges’ Civert Stop the Cavalry – A solidly built, well shaped Tri-colour boy. Big, well packed head with a good profile. His ears were a touch big and he was not keen to use them. Good mouth. Plenty of bone but his front could be straighter. Well shaped hindquarters and movement was ok, covering the ground well. Shown in good condition.

2nd. Phillips’ Bullyon Beyond Measure – Tall, heavyweight, white dog. His head was strong with a good profile. He has a perfect mouth.
