Congratulations to the Lichfield team on running a busy and friendly show. Thought had obviously gone into the judging panel, with a combination of fairly new breed judges and others with more experience. I had an interesting selection of dogs sent through, competition was fairly even, I thought. Having said that I thought the 9 months old Shar Pei, Beashas Boy Begbie was a clear winner. He is still a little loose in front, but I thought his outline and proportions were so correct. He has a lovely head, clean eyes, super ears. Topline is correct for the breed, angulation balanced, coat and tail very typical. Good luck with him. He was also BPIS RBIS went to the very typy Welsh Springer, Don’s Statement to Nylirem. He is v well balanced, outline is good, with lots of soft lines. V hood head, strong neck, uses his rear so v well. RBPIS was the Samoyed, Novaskaya Xander Lefay. Well grown and fairly mature male, who shows v well with the occasional spell of puppy naughtiness. His head is v good with a v typical expression. Well balanced and moderate in angulation, making his an easy mover. Lovely to have a Best Veteran competition. The top spot, just pipping the lovely Pap who had won the veteran stakes was a Schipperke, Komardo’s Crazy Diamond at Roopec. This 13 year old was in amazing form. I thought his silhouette was so typical. He has a v good head, super body and went so v well.
