Saltburn & DCS – 15-05-18 – Gary A Steele

I was honoured to be invited to judge BIS my first at this level, I was presented with some lovely representatives of their groups. Was splitting hairs in my final decisions.

BIS: Peirsons’ Bearded Collie – Denters Whirlwinds Broadway Baby (Imp Deu) Junior bitch who typified the movement of this breed. Lovely headpiece and expression. Was balanced throughout, albeit, a bit lacking in coat, but did not detract from her workman like gait and movement.

RBIS: O’Connor’s German Wirehaired Pointer – Karlejay Gump Kin Ya Work Male who impressed for muscle tone and soundness of movement, a dog certainly fit for function. Well put together with everything in good order and moved as one with handler. Lovely head and eye without a hint of coarseness.

BPIS: Burns’ WHWT – Burneze Wild At Heart - My notes say WOW, could completely understand why this lil fella won the terrier group at 6.5 months old. Super bone and substance with a head to die for, he moved like a pro, owning the ring. Will definitely have a bright future I am sure.

RBPIS: Patterson & Murray’s Pekinese – Bratilda Maddison I fell hard for this young lady the minute she entered the ring. Lovely to go over and on the move she was like a steam train with a super model attitude. Was a warm day and no slacking with her, put in her all. Was unlucky to meet the fabulous Westie.

BVIS: Clegram’s Sheltie – Smiddyshaw Relight My Fire Sh Cm 7 and a half year old tricolour bitch, shown in full coat presentation A1. Moved out well with matching angles for and aft, lovely head piece and handled sympathetically to get the best out of her.
