Breed: Pomeranian

Manchester. Pomeranians

I enjoyed judging this wonderful breed for the first time at this level. I was impressed with the overall quality of the entry. Most had great temperaments and were generally sound movers.

The standard calls for a straight tail and says that this is a characteristic of the breed, there were a few that did not confirm to this. I found a number of very soft coats, but happily none were overtrimmed. Some fronts were far to wide and a few very narrow on the move. Most had the right length neck and toplines generally very good. Delighted to see my BOB win the puppy group as well as making a strong final 8 in the adult group – I don’t award top honours to puppies lightly, but thought he was just special.
