BELFAST DOG SHOW SOCIETY
It was a great honour to be invited to judge BIS at one of my favourite shows from childhood. To BDSS committee and officers thank you for inviting me and thank you from all of the judges and exhibitors for another hospitable and amazing weekend.
Who would have thought the BIS line up could have been this strong with every dog a potential BIS winner. I have never had to split hairs like this before to select just two dogs for the ultimate awards. Really appreciate the Group judges for sending me such a great selection.
Ch HABIBA HOLD MY PURSE (CHINESE CRESTED)
What more can I say, I gave the crested her first RES BIS back in 2021 and since then have awarded her a BIS, a Group 1 and a BOB. I am only delighted my first impressions of her have been shared by so many prominent judges who have awarded her so highly. She never put as foot wrong today and I was more than pleased to award her BIS for the second time.
CH CHANDLIMORE HEART BEAT (ST BERNARD)
I recently judged her at Richmond and was so impressed with her size and strength yet totally feminine and in such rock hard body condition. Her head and expression are excellent as is her topline and overall balance. Presented in the best condition and her movement in profile is so impressive for a dog of this size. Such an honour to award her so highly.
