Show Report for PUGS

City of Birmingham 30th of August 2019

As always, I very much enjoyed judging Pugs and many thanks for a decent paper entry and for accepting my placings so sportingly. Sadly, there were many absentees which however made my job easy in some classes. My main winners pleased me very much, but I must admit to being disappointed with particularly some of the lower dog classes where many lacked quality in head. Ears on the whole were far too big, in fact some would even describe them as houndy, and I felt quite a few dogs overall could have done with more bone. Breathing and general soundness could not have been better. Many thanks also to my very efficient stewards who inconspicuously kept me on the straight and narrow!
