Sutton Coldfield & District Canine Association
Many thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge at their well organised show, their hospitality and warm welcome, also to my ring stewards for organising everything so efficiently.
I was asked to judge these classes at the last minute, thank you to the exhibitors for accepting me as a replacement judge.

11 month old bitch, broad head with wrinkle, well padded lips, dark eyes, ears small, neat and well set making for an attractive expression.

Puppy (8 entries, 4 absent)
1st Morgan’s Tytorro Tiger Feet
A pleasing brindle baby at 7 months old with a compact outline. Square, feminine head with broad deep muzzle. Round dark eyes, ears set and used well. Straight front, chest developing well, gentle roach leading to small tail. Correct rear angulation. Sound movement. She seemed tired in puppy group at the end of a long day.
2nd Cassidy’s Chinaskys Charlie Bucket
Mature for his 9 months brindle dog of bigger type. Appealing head with round eyes and well set ears. Broad in muzzle, nose laid back. Straight front, gentle roach, could be a little shorter in loin. Moved well.
3rd Plimbley & Worthy’s Kuredeux Ragamuffin
Junior (2 entries, 1 absent)
1st Wozniak’s Frantelia Dearest Creature
Black masked fawn puppy placed 4th in previous class. Square head, dark round eyes, ears large and set low although she uses them well. Straight front, well ribbed but chest needs to develop and she looks leggy. Slightly long in loin. Movement was erratic, dog and handler need a little more training to work as a team.
Post Grad (3 entries, 1 absent)
1st Conway & Chapman’s Norcairn Dark Eclipse
Mature brindle bitch of nice type being small and compact. Square head with desired wrinkle, bat ears which are correctly set and well used. Broad, deep jaw. Straight front, deep chest, gentle roach. Muscled rear which she used to move out around the ring. Won BOB on maturity and movement.
2nd Plimbley & Worthy’s Oakprides Lady May
Brindle bitch with square head, dark eyes and slightly large ears which she doesn’t use to advantage. Straight front, deep chest, adequate rear. Slightly longer in loin than winner and not as true in movement.

1st Conway & Chapman’s Norcairn Shear Delight
Fawn bitch with black mask, eyes could be a shade darker. Broad, deep muzzle, ears well set and used. Straight front, short loin, muscled rear. Outline would be enhanced with more length of leg. Moved well.
Puppy (3 entries, 1 absent)
1st Stocks’ Pandamax Lady Martini to Nospar (Dalmatian)
11 month bitch, clean head with flat skull and well placed ears. Straight front although width of chest needs to develop, round feet, strong neck, level in topline. Strong rear and moved out well, perhaps carrying a little too much weight. BP
2nd Williams Tolkain Storm King From Phandate (Dalmatian)
8 month old dog pup that I judged in December and he has matured since. His head is appealing, with well placed ears and eyes. Arched neck, deep chest and well angulated rear. In good coat and condition, his movement let him down today due to a cut pad.
Junior (2 entries, 0 absent)
1st Poyser & Bodell’s Andor Golden Girl at Tinamba (Tibetan Spaniel)
15 month old bitch in lovely coat and condition. Pretty head with dark eyes and high set ears, strong muzzle. Short neck, level topline, high set curled tail. Strong rearquarters, moved out well and soundly to win RBOB

1st Bennett’s Tsoyu Murasaki Go (Japanese Akita Inu)
An attractive head with dark, small eyes, small, pricked ears and well developed cheeks. Straight front, level topline, adequate rear. Tail correctly set and curled. Felt he lacked width of chest and would improve with more bodyweight. Movement OK.
Open (4 entries, 2 absent)
