Windsor Dog Show Society

Breed: Toy Group

My thanks to the officers & committee of Windsor Dog Show Society for the opportunity to judge this most impressive group. For my final assessment I drew up a short list including the Bichon Coad’s Jap Trinity JP Dream Come True, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Kilcoyne’s Ch Granasil Bourbon, and the Havanese JéRôME & AUDREY, Mr & Mrs PAIN & GARCIA & MARIAN Ch. IMPERIO FROM BOHEMICA LAND.

My final choice to top the group was Guy’s Griffon Bruxellois, Donzeata Royal Attraction. This Red Rough bitch excels in all the essentials of the breed, with lovely open features to the head, expressive eyes, big body and compact outline with lovely head & tail carriage. In ideal coat she moved true coming and going, her pleasing angulation giving her an impressive, relaxed profile going round. In second spot was the Chinese Crested Dunlop’s Ch Habiba Hold My Purse with her outstanding action & glamorous profile on the move. She impresses on the table also, with lovely detail in her head, lovely eyes, ears & nose, excellent angles and feet, & fine skin in super condition. In 3rd place Pug Farnworth’s Ch Taftazini Nepalensis Jw, with his square compact build & gentle expression from lovely eyes & nose pad. In muscular condition he moved strongly with an impressive front action. In 4th place was the Papillon Weber’s. Aus DK Ch Ger Hun Slo Ch Swiss VDH Mi'DiLiva's A T Glamorous dog with refined head & large well fringed ears, well-made in body and well-carried head & tail. Light-footed action on the move and an impressive profile going round.
