STANHOPE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OPEN SHOW Held on: Sunday 9h September 2018 Judge: Mr Russell F. Jones (Quemerford) It was a pleasure to be invited to Judge at Stanhope Agricultural Society on Sunday 9th September 2018, it was a great day out for all the family, lots to see around the stalls and the show. Many thanks to the Committee and Stewards for their help throughout the day. Lucky the rain held off for most of the day, only a couple of showers. A big thank you to all for the excellent entry, so well done to all exhibitors.

BEST IN SHOW Mr. & Mrs. M. McBeth: Ch./Ir. CH. Silkata Perchance To Dream With Maclaurien, JW, Sh.CM, IR J Ch.: Hungarian Puli 6.5yr old dog. There is something about Pulis they seem to get better with age and this dog does not disappoint. He is a black/grey colour shown in full fettle. He is of a super type with a good out-line and stance. He has a typical mature masculine head with a correct bite and palette, good eyes that shone when I looked at them. Correct length to neck and correct shoulder. Good spring of rib and chest, good tuck up, good back and strong back end with good angles to rear and nice hocks. His coat is well corded and he was well presented. He moved so typical of the Puli breed. I do like to see them hop, skip and turn, I know not every judge appreciates this, but I do because to me that is a Puli. Today I could have quite easily have taken him home with me, I just loved him. Pleased to award him BIS. Well done and thanks for bringing him, it was well worth the 700-mile round trip to judge him.
