I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to judge at this show.  Thank you to all the competitors who supported the club giving them an excellent entry.  There was a lovely friendly and warm atmosphere throughout the show and as always with the SEWSSC – very well organised. Special thanks to Pam Wren and her team for the excellent lunch and refreshments, to Tracy Bennet as Show Manager and her team and my two very professional Stewards Pam Blay and Netty.

Special Awards

Thank you to the committee for this appointment and congratulations on a wonderful show. There was a great atmosphere around the hall. The sportsmanship of the exhibitors applauding each class and accepting their places in both shows with grace.

Special Award Junior Dog or Bitch (5, 2)

1st Johnstone’s Glenbrows Erasmus for Gilpeta - 8 month old dog that was lovely to go over and moved true from all angles and good tail carriage. Slightly domed head with muzzle of equal length and fairly square. Dark eye and moderately low-set ears. Long, muscular neck leading into well-laid-back shoulders. Strong topline with well-arched, short, strong loin. Well-boned and standing on compact feet.

2nd Caldwell & Levy’s Cerysan Limited Edition - 17 month dog, Domed skull and muzzle slightly shorter than length on skull. Dark eye and ears set level with lower eye. Strong bone standing on compact feet. Strong topline with strong, well arched loin. Moved well in profile showing lively action but tended to carry his tail above his back.


Special Award Post Graduate Dog or Bitch (8, 3)

1st Tew’s Pamicks Dream With Me - a feminine 2 year old bitch just starting to come into her maturity. Loved her head with muzzle medium length and fairly square. Dark eye with low set ears. Strong topline with developed loin and well muscled. Good spring of rib and dept of brisket. Tail set on and low and carried well on the move where she was true and lively.

2nd Naunton’s Trenzalore Oncoming Storm - 4 year old bitch had a soft head and expression with dark eye. I would prefer a slightly squarer definition to her muzzle. Strong topline and tail set on low which was carried well on the move. Well angulated in front and rear which was shown in her profile movement.


Special Award Open Dog or Bitch (13, 3)

This was a strong class with lots of lovely dogs and many I think would swap places on different occasions.

1st Gaylor & Robertson’s Heniveruce King Of Brewers for Aprilflash - This 3 year old lad caught my eye at the start of the class. Clearly built for endurance he has strength throughout. Masculine head with dark eye and correct ears, slightly domed skull and medium length muzzle which was fairly square with a small taper. Strong, muscular neck leading to sloping shoulders. Deep in brisket with well-sprung ribs and proportionally built without being leggy. Muscular, well arched loin and tail set on low, carried level with the back. Well presented to complete the picture.

2nd Thomas’ Bowdonia Truly Scrumptious - This 2 year old bitch was close up and pushed the winner. Feminine with a lovely dome to skull and medium-length muzzle. Good depth of chest and spring of rib with strong topline and muscular loin. Well angulated fore and aft. Her tail set is correct, set on low, but she tends to carry it above her topline on the move. However, her movement is lively in profile showing reach and drive and true behind.
