Thank you to the society for inviting me to award my first set of CCs and to my stewards for efficient running of the excellent sized ring. Im very grateful for my entry and the gracious way my decisions were taken. It was nice to see that temperaments and mouths have improved although I would have liked to have seen cleaner teeth in many exhibits. I was pleased to see more hare feet present and a good representation of correct veil coated powderpuffs and moderately furnished hairless. Type remains mixed in the breed with my biggest concern being heads, many of which were too heavy, too broad in backskull and lacked refinement throughout. Its important we remember this breed should be elegant and graceful and do not allow heaviness or coarseness to creep in.
VD (3/1A) 1st Oliver’s Ynchrenoo Boayl Fahrane At Sareldian 8 Year Old of nice size and type. Balanced outline with good topline, tailset and skin. Good head with nice ears, just would prefer a little less backskull. Lively and attentive to his handler and moved with purpose once settled. 2nd Ousbey’s Foresti’s Jamaican Fizz 7 year old, heavier type than 1 and not appreciating the morning chill. Nice length to body, although carrying a little too much weight. Head ok with ears well set and good eye. Good length to stride on the move.
PD (6/2A) 1st Farquharson’s, Shanshal Man Of Steel immaculately presented 11 month old powderpuff who is well up to size.
