Breed: South Cts group

Southern Counties Utility Group

Congratulations to the Southern Counties team for putting on such a good show, We were blessed with 3 sunny days and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout the show, with exhibitors enjoying their hobby. Good organisation and an interesting judging panel must be part of the reason for the increased entry. I enjoyed judging the Utility group and thought it was one of the strongest groups I have judged. I was very happy with my shortlist, and there were several others who I left out on the day, but would have been happy to place on another day. I felt some were feeling the heat more than others. Making the final 8 were the Akita, French Bulldog, Japanese Spitz and Shar Pei. GROUP 1 CH MINARETS BEST KEPT SECRET Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (MISS M HARWOOD) Not the first time I have judged this wonderful d. Today he put on a faultless performance, I just love how he carries himself going around, with his tail held at the perfect angle. He is very well made under that magnificent coat, and so firm in body and muscle. GROUP 2 TI LA SHU HOT N SPICE (IMP DEU) Breed: Tibetan Terrier ( MR & MRS S COLLINSON) Quite a young b, she impressed me on her movement, which is accurate and such a good stride. She is square in outline, sturdy body and a really appealing head, GROUP 3 CH/US CH DAWIN STEAL MY HEART [ATC AU01596CAN] Breed: Poodle (Standard) (MRS L CAMPBELL) Impossible to ignore his. Such wonderful presentation he looks a picture. Long head, long neck, well modied and such a good mover, GROUP 4 BALGAY MA LINETTE OF STARLANCE JW SHCM Breed: Tibetan Spaniel (MRS P J BEVIS) Thought her enchanting. She has a lovely head, well proportioned, super expression abd a good chin. I liked her proportions, has the right amount of coat and moved very well. Jeff Horswell
