Sutton Coldfield and District Canine Society Open Show
24 February 2018
Judge: Theresa Pass
First time I have judged an inside ring at this venue, and it did have an impact on the performance of the dogs in front of me, which was a shame. One of the things I enjoy most about watching this breed in the show ring is seeing the effortless movement and powerful reach. This was difficult today as a result of the floor, but I thank the organisers for giving me a larger ring to help improve the movement.
1 Goodwin’s Valkyrie Siwash Legend (Imp Cz), 9 month old b/w bitch with pleasing foxy expression and confident attitude for one so young. Still very much a baby, but has nice construction with everything in proportion which I am sure will grow in the right direction as she develops. Definitely enjoyed her day out – lovely to see her relishing being in the ring. BP
1 Deshka’s Cassiar Dyr for Polarcreek, 13 month old g/w bitch, light on her feet and settled into her movement well. Compact youngster with alert expression, still a little development needed to put everything in the right place but heading in the right direction. Good thick double coat considering time of year. RBOB
Post Graduate (1,2)
1 Deshka’s Cassiar Dyr for Polarcreek
1 Smith’s Amical Kapri, 4 year old white bitch with such a bright foxy expression always so light on her feet. Pleasing front and correct angulation throughout. Good front giving pleasant overall appearance of a good potential working dog. Moved out well today despite the floor at the venue. BOB
2 Cunningham’s Icebex Yippee Ki Yay, 3 year old b/w bitch with beautiful expression and perfect muscle tone, strong level topline with everything in good proportion, just did not move out as well as others on this floor making it difficult to judge the full potential on the day. Another day and another surface may be a very different result.
