Southern Pointer Club

I would like to thank the Southern Pointer Club for inviting me to Judge their show, I had some lovely dogs to go over, movement, as always, was difficult to assess in a small hall, but that said it was great to have mats across the whole floor and I am sure the dogs and handlers appreciated it too. Thanks also to my stewards and to all the exhibitors for a super entry.

MPD (3 0)

1. Wilcox, Pipeaway Dreams Afyre, nice young dog, good front with well laid shoulders and depth for his age, correct bone and feet, good body with ribs extending well back, moved best to take this class with lovely tail action. BPD

2. Wheldon & Earl, Ponsonby Blowin in the Wind Imp NZ, another promising puppy, nice head and expression, flowing lines and correct angulation, not the depth of chest as the winner and needs to mature and tighten up on the move.

3. Booth, Lundgarth Finch

1. Ponsonby Blowin in the Wind

JD (2 0)

1. Preece & Gilding, Harvestslade Cullinan, very striking dog stacked up, good head and expression, flowing lines, good depth of brisket, good bone and feet, slight slope to pastern, moved well when he settled.

2. Wilcox, Pipeaway Lightening Strike on Merynjen, smaller and more compact dog, nice expression but would have preferred more length of muzzle, long neck and shoulders , good turn of stifles just a bit short in the ribcage which spoilt his outline, but was rather tense in his class which showed in his movement.
