Breed: Retriever (Golden)

Bournemouth Golden Retriever

I really enjoyed judging this lovely breed for the first time at this level. Numerically one of the best entries of the show, which of course is usual. My efficient, helpful stewards kept the ring running smoothly so I was able to finish on time. I found plenty of really good dogs, most with good proportions and none resembling a Clumber. Fronts were one of the main problems.

Minor Puppy D (4) Thought this was a v good class to start. 1st: 2978 NORRIS Mrs S Fenpinque Magnum Opus at Molestream Baby of the class at 6 mths. His balanced angulation, leading to easy action won the class. He is a bit strong on head as yet & could be cleaner in throat. Lengthy neck. Quite good shoulders. Deep chest. Well sprung ribs that go well back. Firm rear, that matches his front. Level topline. V good prospect. Liked him a lot. BP 2nd: 3007 TRINDER Mr A Thornywait Showstopper Liked his proportions. He has a super head with v good eye and expression. Moderate neck, which could be better set with a slightly better shoulder. Grand body. Firm topline.
