Alaskan Malamute: Miss Anne Bryson (Inukshuk)
Thank you to the committee for their kind invitation to judge at this glorious show, and to my Steward for her assistance. The ring was considerably reduced in size by a large patch of stinging nettles that unsettled a few of the dogs today and I thank my exhibitors for graciously bearing with me as we worked around this.
POSTGRADUATE (1) Dobson/Shornwolf’s SUTARKA LA DOLLE VITA 21 month old grey and white bitch of lovely friendly nature. Unfortunately she was spooked by a large patch of nettles in the ring and took time to settle again; a credit to her handler. Nice broad head in proportion, ears correct shape and size, obliquely set moderately large almond shaped eyes giving sweet expression. Correct scissor bite. Chest strong and deep. Good feet. Moderate angulation. Back straight but not level, the topline could have a little more slope. Tail a little tight but set correctly and well furred. Good coat and general condition. Movement a little loose still in the rear, but did well to settle after the fright at the start. BOB.
