WESTBURY & DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY OPEN SHOW Held on: Sunday 16TH September 2018 Judge: Mr. Russell F. Jones (Quemerford) I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge the Working Breeds and Group at this show. I had a lovely large ring, a very good steward and judging was outside, the weather was just about right for all, exhibitors and dogs. I was delighted to watch my Working Group winner the Alaskan Malamute Dark Diamond Snowflake Of Engel At Muzoku, JW, Sh.CM, take BIS and my Working Puppy Group winner the Siberian Husky Zaltana Kiss My Paws at Lolotea, (Imp. Pol.), take BPIS. What more could I ask for on this superb day.

He was bursting with energy and was handled to perfection. He has a good head with a hint of impishness in his eye, which I just love, just looks to play. Strong neck, superb shoulders, good angles, correct withers. Deep chest and good spring of rib. Straight legs, good sloping top-line which he held on the move, short loin, good croup and good tail set. Excellent angles and muscles to rear, strong hocks used to perfection on the move.
