Penzance & District Canine Society limited show

Sunday 20th May 2018

My sincere thanks to the officers and committee of Penzance & DCS for inviting me to judge at their member's limited show. I have exhibited here on many occasions and judged previously; always a warm welcome from such a friendly committee. I was very impressed with my final line up, especially the puppies who all showed such great promise. Thank you to all the exhibitors who brought their dogs under me, it was a very enjoyable day.

Strong and well muscled quarters, well defined second thigh and short hocks. Coat presented in immaculate condition and of correct texture. This chap really came into his own on the move, his correct structure allowing him to power effortlessly around the ring with an easy stride.

He put on a great show to take the top spot in great company.
