Judge: Mr Russell F. Jones (Quemerford)
It was a great honour to be invited to judge at Richmond Championship Dog Show and it was my first time judging at this venue. It was a long wait before I judged this breed, so thank you for waiting. Firstly, all were presented in a good clean condition. Secondly, I was impressed with the overall quality of all today. Then the weather, it had been very hot all day, then the rain started, all were good sports and I applaud you all. Thank you for making my day.
Veteran Dog or Bitch (1,0), 1 Woodey, Mrs. D., Aus. Ch. Barawood Solace (Re. Imp.): A 7yr old sable bitch that stood alone in this class. She is of a pleasing type with good out-line. She has a pleasing head, nice neck, decent front and nice top-line. Good back-end and neat croup. Moved ok. Pleased to award her BV.
Post Graduate Dog (2,1), 1 Wyer, Mrs. Hilary &, Wyer, Mr. Ray, Cottivy Fernando: A 19mth old sable dog with nice rich colouring. He is a well grown dog that was presenting a nice picture. I liked his head and ear-set, decent neck, nice front with front legs well under him and nice brisket. Strong back of good length, neat croup and strong back-end. Moved out well around the ring. Pleased to award him Res.BD. Well done.
Open Dog (7,1), 1 Coulson, Mrs. Susan & Coulson, Mr. Barry, Ch. Woodhenge Star Commander: A 2.6yr old sable dog and like his name what a star he is. He is very eye catching, with a super head, very appealing with a good ear-set, excellent length of neck, good front and brisket. His front legs are well under him to give him that stable base. Strong level back and short loin which I loved. Excellent croup and tail-set, strong back end which is finished off with neat hocks. He moved with ease around the ring. I really liked him and was pleased to award him BD and later BOB, well done.
2 Davies, Mrs. Mary Helen, Ch. Andvol Z-Sieger at Ermyn (Imp. Rus.): A 2.6yr old tri dog, that is slightly smaller than 1st. He is well balanced and has a good head and ear-set, good length of neck and neat front. Nice level top-line. Felt his back could have been a little longer, good back end. He is overall a very pleasing dog to the eye. Moved very well around the ring.
3 Aylott, Mr. W. & Mrs. B.A., Barwal Bager Boy: A 2yr old sable dog that is of a nice type and out-line and is of a good colour. He is well balanced with a nice shape and he moved out well around the ring. Pity to come up against the others today. He was the youngest in this class.
