Thank you very much to the committee for the invite to judge the special award classes held in conjunction with your open show. The hospitality was excellent and I very much appreciated the lovely gift. The classes were well supported , thank you to the exhibitors for allowing me the opportunity to assess your lovely dogs.


Class Special Junior Dog / bitch (6,0)

1st Glenbrows Wish

Very smart puppy, balanced outline, decent forechest and deep through brisket, well ribbed back and nicely balanced angles fore and behind. Her head is lovely, with chiselling below eyes coming through. On the move she is very correct from any angle. Good tail action. She was shown in the best of condition and handled to advantage.I liked her very much and would not be surprised to see her winning top awards very soon.

2nd Tigerrock Tick Tick Boom

Another very nice young dog , well off for bone and presents a lovely balanced picture. Good forechest and ribbed well back, he had strong rear quarters and good width of 2nd thigh. Moved with drive and viewed from behind his rear had parallel hocks. Head pleasant, just needs time to finish.  

3rd Ferndel Starry Eyes


Class Post Graduate Dog / Bitch (11,1)

1st Mymmsbrook Matador With Blythway

Liked his overall shape , he has plenty of bone and strength, head masculine, defined stop, kind expression, very good front construction, deep through brisket. Moderate rear angulations moved true with correct footfall and good length of stride. Shown in full coat of silky texture .

2nd Glenbrows Marquis

A bit of a fidget on the stack but

Similar comments apply, good forechest and balanced front and rear. Good width to second thigh, stood on tidy feet, just not as clean in rear action today.
