Many thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge at their show and to the exhibitors for their wonderful quality entry on this, my first CC appointment for this lovely breed. There was a great atmosphere with friendly, sporting exhibitors. Extended thanks to my stewards, Angie and Francis for keeping the ring running smoothly.
Puppy Dog (3,0) 1 Colbourne-Baber & Stark’s Tubize Giovanni. A handsome 8 months Red of ideal size. He has a most lovely head, with dark expressive eyes, good underjaw, small, high set ears, leading into a well arched neck. Well boned. Short coupled, topline needs time to settle as he can look just a tad bum-high, bang on tail set which he carries well. Moved round the ring with style. Must have a bright future. BP. 2 Kirby’s Tubize Du Beke with Kirbsea, red, litter brother to 1 of a bigger frame but all in proportion. He has a nice head, dark eyes, ears need to strengthen. Good neck into well laid shoulders. Pasterns are a little weak at this time. Slightly longer cast than 1. Good tailset. Moves out with good action fore and aft. 3 Mitchell’s Alcum Blame It On Me.
