United Kingdom Toydog Society

Breed: Chihuahua (Smooth Coat)

Firstly I would like to thank the committee for the kind invitation, I was deeply honoured to be able to judge at this particular championship show given its admiration and respect amongst the toy breed exhibitors. Secondly, to my very efficient steward John Purnell and last but by no means least the exhibitors who took the time and effort to enter and allowed me to go over their dogs. I do apologise for the delay in publishing my critique and thank you all for your patience

As a general observation I found the overall quality of the breed rather disjointed, some nice winners coming through the classes, however, the quality of dogs further down the classes was at times a bit disappointing. As a general observation of the breed I would encourage a closer eye on toplines and tail sets.

Special Beginners D/B

1st: BERWICK Ms S L Highlandchi's Star Gazer – 12 month old tri colour bitch of nice size and temperament. Made good use of her ears and remained showing throughout the class. Would have liked a tidier front, but moved well on side profile.

2nd: PRINCE Mrs E & Mr A Digby the Biggest – Chocolate tri colour male, nice front movement and construction with a pleasing enough head. Nice expression and eye but in general need of body condition and ring training, had he been more co-operative he would have placed first.
