Luton Canine Association
Premier Open Show 29/30th December
I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge at their 2 day Premier show and to my steward jean for her help on the day, though numbers were low I would like to thank exhibitors for allowing me to go over their dogs and for traveling great distances to the show , all dogs had beautiful temperaments which is vital in this large breed.
Grad D/B (4.1.)
1. BOB. Clare’s Ryazan Firestorm s/r 18 months Dog and maturing well. I first saw this lovely young man as a puppy from a distance and thought wow what a dog and examining him was not disappointed, there was nothing to dislike about him, a pleasure to go over him. Good overall balance, nice fall away ,true masculine head ,good oval eye, bite and ears, good angulation front and back with good depth of chest, moved with ease and covered the ground well, in full coat ,and well presented. A Champion in the making.
2.Floyd and Fredisdottir’s Tyysgol Syr Gwain S/G.18 months Dog, another well presented dog, one I like very much my type, not quite as mature as 1.but has all the right makings of a dog to watch and I hope goes on to do well. lovely strong masculine head good under jaw ,lovely oval eye, good bite ,good angulation front and back,good depth of chest ,moved well and covered the ground with ease. A dog to watch.
Open.D/B (3.1.) A hard class to judge as I felt not a lot to choose between them so my winner was placed on a slightly better movement.
1.Johnson’s Skyrose Sea of Papavas at Viridis w/b 2yr old Bitch nice feminine head with a lovely expression ,good bite ,a little straight in front but a good overall balance and good length of body. sadly her feet are not her fortune but gained her place by slightly better movement, in full coat and well presented.
2.Thomas’s Clairleighs Cuba Kharusso 10 yr Bitch lovely lady for her age, have seen her move much better but not settled today ,lovely feminine head, good bite, eyes and ears, good depth of chest ,slightly shorter bodied than 1.but good overall balance.
