Some top class dogs in these classes over the two days.
KC Good Citizen Stakes – Dog or Bitch
Day 1: Gundog, Hound and Terrier
1: SH CH/DEUTSCHER CH (VDH) KIMMAX KURIOUS GEORGE BS '17 BS '18 Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer (MR P F & MRS M MCCULLOUGH). An athletic, powerful, masculine dog who really does give the impression of being able to do a day’s work. Good head, with well set eyes and a kind expression. Very pleasing forehand with deep chest, strong, straight legs and well padded feet. Moved well with some drive and a good length of stride. Harsh double coat.
2: PHLYNNIES PRINCE OF THIEVES JW Breed: Pointer (MISS M SAUNDERS). A striking handsome dog, shapely and pleasing for balance, type and size. Grand head and expression, clean neck and shoulders, short coupled with a strong loin and good spring of rib. Used his tail on the move where he displayed a smooth easy action with some drive from the rear.
3: NEVEDITH ZUFOR ZAYNI JW SHCM Breed: Whippet (MRS A M & MR L SAMPSON)
KC Good Citizen Stakes - Dog or Bitch
Day 2: Working, Pastoral, Utility and Toy
1: CH WALDERSHELF CAUSING KAOS SHCM Breed: Bernese Mountain Dog (MR C, MR J M, MRS D & MISS D L HUGHES). Apparently last time I judged him it was a very hot day and he didn’t perform too well. I told his handler that I’d love to see him again when it was cooler and today he was on top form. Strong, masculine and very well made with a grand head, excellent neck and shoulders and good breadth and depth of chest. Well ribbed with good breadth over the quarters. Moved out very well with some reach and drive. A lovely character.
2: MILESEND SWEET WHISPERS AT ELJETIA Breed: Shetland Sheepdog (MRS J PARKES). Very classy and with a lovely head and sweet expression. Well balanced with good body and rib, slight slope to croup and good length of tail. Moved with a light effortless action. Excellent coat and shows to good advantage.
3: ARAKI TURN BACK TIME AT PARKMIST SHCM Breed: Tibetan Terrier (MRS T J SHORT)
