Dogs – Judge Jim Devine

I would like to thank the Committee for the invite. The new venue was very good with plenty of room and good sized rings. I would also like to thank my stewards who did a great job. Also thank you to all the exhibitors for

the sporting way in which they accepted my decisions. Dogs on the whole were all fit and healthy and performed well.

Minor Puppy Dog 3 (1 abs)

1st: Axe’s – Harleys Choice. Black Brindle. Good head shape, good eye giving a pleasant expression. Correct bite. Front developing nicely. Short coupled, good feet with short nails. Pup tended to get a little ahead of the handler on the move but, handled well. Lost out on Best Puppy only on maturity, no doubt he will turn into a winning puppy.

2nd: Brady’s – Calazde Black Hawk War – Brindle. A very promising pup, correct bite, well balanced dog. Short coupled, good feet, short nails. In good condition. Moved and handled well.

Puppy Dog 4 (0)

1st: Schack’s – On A Highway To Hell Great ‘N Glory – Brindle. Well developed pup. Correct head shape, good eyes, well set ears and correct bite. Short coupled, good front.  Nice feet with short nails. Excellently handled and moved well. I thought he was the more mature pup in the challenge and also for the Best Puppy in show but on

the Referee’s decision he had to settle for the BEST PUPPY DOG. Well done and good luck for the future.

2nd: Hardley’s – Joemikeste Amor Dei. Red/White. Well balanced overall appearance. Good head shape, good bite. Short coupled. He shown himself very well, moved well didn’t put a foot wrong. Handler got the best out of him and pushed the winner. He should turn out very well.

3rd: Stanway’s – Little Earthquakes Powerstrike At Waystaff. Brindle. Developing nicely for his age. Good type, correct bite, moved well. Unfortunately seemed a little nervous on the day but still put in enough to get his place.

Res: Moureu-Larrang & Moureu’s – Maitre Yoda Du Clan’ Molotov

Junior Dog 12 (0)

1st: Breckell’s – Chiswelstaff Lets Dance. Brindle. Absolutely cracking dog, not overdone in any department. Good head shape, nice round eye, correct bite. Good front well padded feet with short nails. Short coupled, strong hindquarters. Coat in top condition. A very fit dog, moved really well and was handled to perfection

You would be hard pushed to find fault with this dog as he does look the part and they make a good team. He won a very strong class with plenty of top competition. When seeing him in the challenge at the end he looked even better. CC and BIS on Referee’s decision. Good luck, I really liked his type.

2nd: Allsopp’s – Rubericla Trailbreaker. Brindle. Again a dog in top condition. Nice shaped head, well placed ears, round eye and correct bite. Well padded feet with short nails. Short coupled. Level topline which he kept while on the move. He was a nice picture to look at and will be hard to fault when he fully matures. Handler shown him to

perfection. Made the winner work hard. Well done and good luck.

3rd: Weiss’ – Out Of The Dark Great ‘N Glory. Brindle. Pleasing head and expression. Correct bite. In top condition. A well balanced dog with everything in the right place. Moved well. Was unfortunate to meet the other two but again was shown at his best by his handler which made you look again at him. This was a very good class with top quality in it, you will do well in the future.

2nd: Robb’s – Caymenstaffs Blackthorn. Brindle. Great head shape, good eye, ears and expression. Correct bite. Well balanced, a good type nothing exaggerated. Moved well. Handled expertly.

Dog Judge – Jim Devine


Bitches – Judge Bert Emmett

It was a great honour to be asked to judge this Ch show. A lovely entry awaited me and this new venue was first class. I would like to thank the officials and committee for a well run show and my able stewards Kay Aspin and Claire Crossman who kept my ring running smoothly. The bitches I went over were of a high quality. No bad faults, no bad mouths, just a couple that could have been presented in a cleaner condition. In the Puppy classes and Junior there were some lacking in ring craft which spoilt their chances. Lastly, a big thank you to the exhibitors who came under me and accepted my decisions in good spirit.
