The City Birmingham Canine Association Standard Poodles 1st September 2019 

This was going to be a difficult day for me personally for obvious reasons but that said it was made easier by the sportsmanship with which my decisions were accepted. I would like to thank those of you who choose to show under me and my stewards for their help and efficiency. 

VD (2:0) 1st; Furey Ch SOMANIC STYLE BY DESIN AT CLANESE. 8 years old shown and presented in first class condition masculine head and expression lovely make and shape just comes into his own on the move so free and effortless I think he has certainly improved with age Res CC & BV pleased to see he placed 2nd in Veteran Group. 2nd: Dainty Harrison & Khawaja MYALL STORM. Another quality 9 year veteran pleasing head and eye nicely constructed through out shown in good condition moved well but was just outshone by 1st.

 MPD (1:0) 1st: Gilbert CARLONIA SPRING SUNSHINE. 6 ½ month apricot male lovely colour pleasing head and expression nicely constructed moved well better presentation would improve the overall picture. 

PD (1:0) 1st : Parker & Winwood MONTEGO BIFFY CLYRO. A worthy winner even though he stood alone this white has a lovely head and eye good pigmentation good reach of neck with a good front nicely ribbed with good rear angulation great tail set and tail carriage has a lovely outline BP and won BPIB his maturity and  steadier movement I am sure he has a very bright future.
