JUDGE MRS SHELLEY FRANKS
Thank you to the exhibitors that made an entry today, such a pity that show entries have reduced drastically over these last couple of years. However, I am aware that this great hobby of dog showing has become so expensive. I would also like to thank my two capable stewards for keeping the procedures running smoothly and efficiently in the ring.
Junior Dog (1,0)
1. PARKINSON & DUNHILL-HALL – TITAN VORMUND DES LEGENDES DE RETZ KAYDANMY (IMP FRA)
My notes say wow what a superb young dog, he fits the breed standard perfectly. So well balanced when standing and his movement is strong with good strides covering the ground, he was in tune with his handler at all times. I loved his head, eye and expression, ear size and placement with a strong muscular body for a youngster. The texture and condition of his red coat was excellent. I was pleased to give him BD and BOB and while watching him in the Utility Group he showed great ring presence and gained a number of admirers from the ringside .
Post Grad Dog (1,0)
1.GIANNATTASIO – CANIFELICI BLACK JACK
This black lad was not too keen to be in the ring today, but once he started to move around the ring his tail went up and I could see his balanced outline and strong movement. The breed is known for its reserved attitude with strangers and his handler was calm and patient which allowed me to complete my examination. He has the correct head and eye, with good shoulder placement and a solid body. Jet black coat in good condition and texture. I do hope he can enjoy future shows. RBD.
Junior Bitch (1,0)
1. PARKINSON – KAYDANMY MISCHIEF MANAGED
Although she stood alone she deserved this class win and also best bitch. She is a very feminine red bitch of 14 months, correct spitz head and expression with a lovely neck and shoulder placement. Good solid body, with a level back when moving and standing and correct tail and set. She is a strong mover and can cover the ground effortlessly, her red coat was in excellent condition. BB.
