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
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
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.
Reserve: 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.

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.
