DOGS - Judge Anne Wells (Bernfold)

Firstly I’d like to say a big thank-you to Agnes, George and the Committee for inviting me to be a part of their super weekend also a big thanks to my stewards they had their work cut out making sure I completed all the paper work (the worst bit for me) and to Jean for all she did getting me to and from places (lovely car excellent driver and companion)
To summarise my judging day. I had a lot of novice people and dogs some had never been to ring craft before let alone a show but this wasn’t a problem as most were glad to be shown and they achieved enough in short time for me to be able to assess the dog fairly, so to those people please keep it up and go to ring craft if possible or just practice in the garden.
Overall I was very disappointed with movement fronts were very bad the chest should be broad with good depth of brisket in a lot of the dogs they haven’t got a chest no width at all between front legs back ends not so bad seemed to be getting a bit more strength from the rear still not great but better, heads have been a mixed bag for years but I did have some with that old fashioned look with the lovely kind eye, broad skull and correct stop and ear set giving that melting soft expression, tails on a lot of dogs are too short not reaching the hock that is the end of the tail bone not the longest white hair reaching the hock. Having said all that I very much enjoyed my day but in some classes it was a challenge but the top winners were super many thanks to you all.

VETERAN DOG (5 entered, 2 absent)
1st Scobie's Monalou First Class Mail. Dog CC Res B.I.S. This lad certainly is an ambassador for the breed at 9 and a half years old he can still move better than most plenty of drive from the rear and reach from the front, lovely head shape broad scull with correct ear set and stop, clear reach of neck leading to well laid shoulders level topline correct tailset and length, super bone straight front and good bend of stifle at the rear. It’s such a shame he didn’t take to showing sooner he would certainly be a champion many times over by now. It was a pleasure to award him his first CC.
2nd Baldwin's Fortonpark G'Day Bruce. Medium sized 7 year old very good body shape level topline enough bone for size very easy on the move not the head of 1 but overall a good sound dog.
3rd Hastings' Halesbern Jack Flash at Laightcairn. 11 years old and still having his moment in the show ring obviously at his own pace but enjoying the day.

1st Robinson's Elnside The Quest. . 8 mths I had to spend time on this lad it was the first time for handler and pup but he was worth it so please keep up the training he needs to grow in confidence, lovely body good angles front and rear super bone when settled he was the best mover in the class head I hope will broaden in time, good stop and correct eye shape and colour, Really promising pup if the work is put in BPD.
2nd Addison's Elnside The Dark Knight. Litter brother to1 same comments apply but a bit longer in body and not so positive on the move

1st Griffiths & Orme's Jaybiem In Lieu. Res CC. I have liked this dog from a puppy and he didn’t disappoint today beautifully turned out gleaming coat he can be a bit exuberant on the move which makes his front untidy but construction is very good front and back good reach of neck level topline lovely shaped head a bit loose in flews and would prefer a tighter eye but a very confident and promising chap.

LIMIT DOG (8, 1)
1st Instone's Dale Gudbrands C-Geilo Zala at Staubach (Imp).

2nd Miles' Ch Jaybiem Utwo. This is my sort of dog always has been a favourite of mine but today not looking the part he is only two with some way to go before he is fully mature and the back end needs to catch up with the front end, also had a nasty sore eye, very free and balanced movement due to correct construction super bone.
3rd Embleton's Ir & Int Ch Bernemcourt Sirocco ShCM. Another male that I would like to be bigger and more masculine all through excellent on the move keeps a level topline and is very well balanced.
