Judge-Ian Sexton

I would like to thank the committee for inviting me judge and congratulate them on coping under very difficult conditions. I had a very enjoyable experience and would also like to thank all my exhibitors for a wonderful entry.

PD (5)  1st. Mrs R Gee’s, Watercroft to coin a phrase. 

 A 10-month-old red, showing excellent overall type, small and compact, head of the correct proportions, ears well-carried, dark eyes and the correct bite. Neck of the correct length level back, with nicely angulated front and rear quarters, shoulders well-laid back and coat of the correct texture and tail carried correctly, he moved sound and true BP.  

2nd. Mrs C S Thompson-Morgan’s, Belleville just a minute.

An 11 month old with a typical outline for the breed, small and compact, level back, correct length of neck, broad skull, well set ears, strong muzzle, dark eyes and the correct bite, I would have preferred more lay back of shoulder blade. He moved soundly being true coming and going.

JD (2)

1st. Mrs M E Atkinson’s, 

Moortop Mymark Again. An almost 18 months old red dog, compact and strong, well balanced throughout, strong head proportions, dark eyes and the correct bite with a strong muzzle.

2nd. Mrs L & Mr M J Philip’s Nordalset Festivities.

A 16 month old, red dog, coat of the correct texture, not the substance or the overall balance of the first placed dog, head of the correct proportions, broad skull and a strong muzzle, dark eyes and the correct bite. Level back and correct tail set, he moved soundly with reach and drive.

YD (2)

1st. Mrs C S Thompson-Morgan’s Belleville Crumble Topping.

A 16 month old red, he had an upsetting encounter before entering the ring so was a little unsettled but is a very typical dog, balanced and in proportion, neck of the correct length well laid shoulders and upper arm, level back and the correct tail set. Head of the correct proportions broad skull, well-set ears, dark eyes and a strong muzzle with the correct bite and dentition. He has a hard wiry coat texture and was well presented, although unsettled his movement was sound and true, a very promising youngster.

2nd. Ms V A Davies’s Lagdenfarm Fidget Pie.

A 23 month old red, not as compact as the first placed dog and carrying a little too much weight today, coat not in the best condition. Head of the correct proportions, broad skull, ears well carried, correct length of muzzle, dark eyes and the correct bite. Level back and tail well set-on, a little high on the leg, he moved soundly.

A 4 year old black and tan, head and muzzle of the correct proportions, dark eyes and the correct bite and dentition.
