Morecambe & Heysham Canine Ass Open Show 29/4/2018


I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge this pleasant show and my stewards who are well experienced and kept things running smoothly. I found the majority of dogs in good condition but was disappointed that a couple of the coated breeds were not so well groomed underneath. My line up for B.I.S. was most pleasing and for B.I.S. I chose the flat coated retriever. Ross’s Go With The Flow In Harmony At Qlocontral J.W. young male who has lovely balance on the stack & moves with ease & purpose. he has the correct flat sell & well set eye, good long neck leading to good shoulders, in good body & strong quarters, tail well set & carried, has excellent feet and in good coat & muscular condition ; R.B.I.S. & B. Puppy in Show the Border Terrier Gilpin’s Otterbobs Duchess, very young but outshone the older dogs today & could not be denied top honours, typical in head, nice body for her age, easy to span rib & loose thick pelt, in excellent double coat of correct texture, nice neat feet & correct shaped tail & carriage, her front is her fortune. R.B. Puppy In Show went to the Whippet Bray’s Cyangrange My Cuppa Tea, just 6 month b, lovely head balance & eye, well set ears, body developing well for age, good bone & neat feet, scores well when she moves, lovely reach in front & drive from the rear, tail well set & carried.
