Thank you to the officers and Committee of this excellently run show, for inviting me to Judge my first Toy Group. The quality in this group today was excellent and any of my final 8 could come away with top honors on another day with another judge.

Group 1

Mr D Guy - Ch Donzeata Royal Attraction - Griffon Bruxellois(Bitch) Rough Red. This young lady stole my heart the minute she trotted into the right. The twinkle in her eye as she looked at me on the table just said it all. Full of breed type, square, cobby, compact so well balanced and free moving. Excellent head shape, dark round eyes that just melted you. Slightly arched neck leading into well laid shoulders. Excelled in body construction. A feminine bitch full of quality and shown in excellent condition.

Group 2

Mrs S Farnworth - Ch Taftazini Nepalenses JW - Pug(Dog) Fawn. Square, cobby compact your man with great charm and charisma. A true gentleman that could seduce any lady, me included. A correct mature masculine head without being coarse, kind soft eye, blackest mask, all well in proportion to his body. Exceptionally strong, well muscled body. Correct construction which produced a wonderful gait, very true from all angles.

Group 3

Mr G Robb and Mrs I Robb - Ch Geniren Daddy’s Starmaker - Papillon(Bitch) Intelligent, elegant and graceful from start to finish. Just a true butterfly. A very well balanced young lady that is truly at one with her handler, beautiful correct head shape with ears so well placed and used to their advantage. Correctly proportioned body covered in the most exquisite coat, long fine and silky just completing the picture

Group 4

Miss R Stracy - Ch Galkerah’s Antonia to Kriegar JW - Miniature Pinscher (Bitch) Shouted stop and look at me. This well balanced young lady moved to perfection with an excellent hackney gate. Lovely feminine head, dark eye, well set ears, good arc of neck leading into neat shoulders, good body shape, level topline and nice tail carriage which she kept on the move
