Boston Terriers (4 classes)

Puppy (2:1)

1st, Sandell’s SHAWMUT I AM ABE LINCOLN Smart 11 month old puppy dog that appeared full of his own self-importance. Such a confident young man who displayed a determined and intelligent outlook emanating from his large dark expressive eyes and overall ring presence. Great head shape, which was proportional to his size. Strong well-muscled thighs for one so young, enabled him to move easily and with power around the ring. Pleased to award him Best Puppy and Reserve Best of Breed. 

Special Yearling (1:1)

1st Sandell’s BOSTONKAIBOS DAISY SUNSHINE OVER SHAWMUT (IMP DEU) Pretty bitch with a lighter frame than others today. She had a head of good proportions with a kind feminine expression. Whilst she was of square outline, I would have preferred more depth to chest and a little more muscle on the frame. Still at a fairly young stage so it will perhaps come on maturity.

Limit (2:2)

1st Scipio & Lightfoot’s TARAVON SASSIE LASSIE ShCM Balanced head with super feminine expression and well-placed dark eyes. Good outline and a very nice type. Carrying a little too much weight for me today, but still moved graceful and true. A quality bitch.

2nd Sandell’s JABRIANA DES GARDIENS DU BOIS CLERBAULT AVEC SHAWMUT (IMP FRA) Another quality bitch with delightful head and expression, making a smart outline when standing. Another carrying a little too much weight today which, for me, affected the movement front and rear.

Open (2:2)

1st Scipio & Lightfoot’s TARAVON SHOOTING STAR Admired his type and overall size and balance. Slightly arched neck carrying his masculine head which had all the right attributes and required proportions, Sloping shoulders and a good turn of stifle enabled very easy & powerful movement around the ring where he showed off his short back and strong, well muscled thighs. I had no hesitation in awarding him Best of Breed. Pleased to see him awarded Utility Group 2

2nd Sandell’s SHAWMUT MACY’S DAY PARADE Pretty bitch with well-balanced head and good bone and square outline. I felt that she was not carrying enough weight at the moment to do her justice and she wasn’t moving at her best today.
