This was an amazing group to judge, one of the best that I have had the pleasure of judging. I would like to thank the Manchester Dog Show Society Committee for inviting me to judge at their Show also the exhibiters for their entries.
1. Pyrenean Mountain Dog (D) Nagrecha. Mattisson-Sandstrom & Sandstrom. Ch Viskalys My Way or No Way to Chandlmore (Imp).
Strong head with excellent lines, dark eyes, correct shape, giving him a true expression. This handsome dog is well constructed and of good size, he has an excellent white coat, he also maintained his outline and tail carriage on the move. This dog is a good ambassador for the breed, I was delighted to give him this group.
2. Hungarian Puli (D) O’Sullivan Mrs R & Kennett Mr M. CH Tyngeli Abracadabra (Ai)
This dog came a deserved second, well constructed body, excellent head with very good lines. Typical lively, short stepping movement. Excellent corded coat to finish the picture.
3, Welsh Corgi (Pembroke) (D) Dover Mr K, & Saether Mr L. CH Pemcader Thunderball (Nbt)
Excellent example of this breed, moved out well to take third place in this strong group.
