Windsor Dog Show Society

Breed: Bichon Frise

Windsor Championship Dog Show 2018

Bichon Frise

Firstly, I am indebted to the society for the invitation and to Terry Nethercott who was my breed specific assessor many years ago and who supported this appointment. I was delighted to receive a most impressive entry which I am sure was enhanced by the breed championship show which followed on during the afternoon. I am sure that this is something which other breed clubs will consider.

The temperature at 9.00am was quite cool so we were able to make full use of the beautifully tendered outside ring. However, as the morning progressed and the sun broke through, we moved undercover so although the ring was somewhat smaller, it was perfectly adequate in order to comprehensively assess movement. The overall standard was excellent.

1st: Johns’s Manoir's Man For All Seasons. Stunning puppy. I simply loved his soft inquisitive eyes; deep pigmentation and he dares you to take a look at those fabulous halos! Super dentition. Gorgeous flowing neck carrying such a proud head carriage. Balanced shoulders with equal length of upper arm and forearm, level back, secure tail set level with topline. Moved with supreme confidence; it was free precise and effortless, using his fabulous forehand reach and strong rear drive. Throughout he maintained such an eye catching profile. CC his first, BPIB and BOB. Uniquely, a few hours later, he gained his 2nd CC in the same ring, then moving to the BIS ring to be awarded G4 and PG1. He returned a few days later to win Reserve BPIS. Congratulations!!

1st: Gallagher’s Rusmar Dezigner Kisses With Junanger. 1 and 2 presented a difficult challenge to separate. After the awards were given I was not surprised to learn they were litter sisters.
