ROYAL CHESHIRE COUNTY OPEN SHOW 19TH & 20TH June 2018.

The show was well organised and Group judging started nice and early on each day, the quality of the exhibits that came before me was impressive. With almost all the breeds scheduled in each Group the many quality BOB’s that were put through tested me and I wished that there was a way to reward more of them, cutting down to just four was difficult indeed. It was the same with the Puppy Groups, there are so many of these that will go on to really successful show careers I am sure.

BIS CHISWELLSTAFF JEAN GENIE SBT Mr C. & Miss N. Mudd. This black two year old is so very typical with a well developed correctly shaped headpiece, dark eyes and perfect bite, strength and power to her forequarters and well boned without exaggeration. Good spring and length of ribbing with a waist and such muscular condition throughout. Decent angulation to the rear and moved in correct fashion, not putting a foot wrong for her very clever handler. Out in the sunshine in the main ring she shone with good condition and demanded attention. RES BIS BIRCHVOLGYI INDIGO MALVERN Chinese Crested Mrs C. Ousbey This beautifully made 16 months lady must have a great future. Balanced and showy at the same time. Good head with super full dentition, dark eyes and ears which she used to advantage. Well constructed in front with nice bone, nicely sprung and short coupled with well carried tail. Stands well and moves out nicely with good drive and angulation. Seems to consider the ring was hers and certainly made the best of herself.

Webb Topping this strong group this masculine 15 months fellow is impressive both standing and on the move, A big sturdy male with a strong but not coarse head, good neck leading into clean shoulders, great topline and good angles fore and aft.
