Coventry & District Kennel Association
Firstly, I would like to thank the Officers and Committee of the Coventry & District Kennel Association for their invitation to judge Pugs at their Open Show on the 20th of May 2023. Thank you for the hospitality and many thanks to the stewards who made everything run smoothly. Lastly many thanks to all the exhibitors for their entries. It was a pleasure to go over your dog’s today, i had some difficult choices to make.
1 Miss A. Ellis`s Eastonite Porthos, A very eye catching 11-month-old fawn dog puppy full of substance. A round masculine head, well defined wrinkles with lustrous dark eyes. Well set on button ears, open nares, wide underjaw and the darkest of pigment. Good reach of neck, straight front level top line with trace, high set tail, Super bone, fore chest and turn of stifle. A well put together balanced boy, which was evident in his excellent movement. BPIB. Was very pleased to hear he went on to get Toy Puppy group 2.
2 Miss J & Miss R Collier`s Pugistie Meant to Bee, another lovely puppy, just 8-months-old. Nice round head with plenty of workings for his age. He has great pigment and a dark eye. Good reach of neck, level top line and high set tail. Just a tad longer in leg, and lighter in bone than one which I’m sure will improve as he matures. Moved out well with drive and was very attentive to his handler.
JUNIOR – (4,3a)
1. Mr JD Neville & Mr SJ Gibbson`s Bilohka Benedict Arnold at Chancete stood alone in this class. A 17-month-old, masculine head with the darkest of pigment, well set on ears, dark eyes, open nares with a wide underjaw. Nice arch to his neck leading to a good top line. A lovely soft clear coat, good bone and substance. Moved well fore and back.

1, Mrs B Lloyd`s Bilohka Brigadier. This lad caught my eye immediately.

The darkest of pigment contrasting well with his soft pale coat. Well arched neck leading to a level top line with trace, and high set tail. Plenty of bone and substance for his age.
