Judge: Mrs Kim Nicol-Jones



I would firstly like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge at this show.  I had a brilliant day and the hospitality was brilliant.

I would also like to thank my 2 Stewards Isobel Legget and Albert Hope who were second to none both keeping me on my toes ….Also a big thank you to the exhibitors for giving me such a smashing entry and for bringing such good quality dogs for me to go over.

VD    1st Todd’s   Supeta’s Feeling Hot Hot Hot at Tofferbach ShCM

Stood alone in this class but of excellent quality Good size and substance lovely head and good shoulder placement, firm top line and angulation at 7 ½  years old he powered round the ring soundly and with purpose.

MPD   1st  Lainchbury’s   Ashlain Sotiros

Loved this B/R baby from the time he walked in to the ring cracking substance and balance for such a youngster. Pleasing head albeit a little jowlier than I would like but this did not detract from the overall picture. Correct length of neck and shoulder placement running into nice top line and tail set which he held on the move good depth of chest and correct angulation fore and aft.  When his handler settled him he moved well

2nd  Balshall’s   Janzins Jamelia JW

Another quality bitch with many of the winners attributes was just a little sluggish on the move  today compared to my winner. A very worthy champion.

MPB  1st   Graham & Mycroft’s   Supeta’s Pocket Rocket at Sharhyste

Still a lot to come with this young lady but in some ways already looking like the finished product beautifully shown from the front giving a clear view of a very balanced and well schooled bitch. She has a lovely dark eye and correct ear set this then flows into a lovely reach of neck and onto well laid shoulders. She has a firm top line and lovely tail set, nice depth of chest and good bone good angulation fore and aft standing on tightest of feet. Such good muscle definition for one so young this enabled her to move freely and soundly around the ring with an air of total arrogance and the look at me factor …More than pleased to award her BPIS

Lovely baby girl, beautiful feminine head dark eye and good earset, lovely length of neck flowing into good shoulders, firm top line and tailset.
