Critique  Judge -Silke Lohkamp-Sommer

First of all I want to say thank you to Windsor Committee to give me the great honor to award the very first time CC’s in the UK and to all the exhibitors and their lovely  dogs. I found that the quality is very high in the UK, most of the dogs were very well looked after and were presented in good nic.  Only a few times I found some knots under the armpits. What I also want to say is, that the dogs are better (very much) handled than on the continent, also the overall presentation. During my judging I found some kinking tails and some bad mouths. I ‘am not used  to kinking tails as it is prohibited to show them on the continent, personally I would watch this very carefully as I have learned during my time as a student judge these is a serious disease named wedge vortex formation. It does not only belong to the tail it can go up through all the spine.  What I also want to say is, that in some classes I wished I had more red cards! Sometimes it was a hair splitting decision, on an other day, it could be different! Overall I was very pleased with my entries and thank you all very, very much to made this day so very special to me! A special thank you to my 2 stewards, they did a super job! Thank you!

Fantastic gentle  sloping topline with correct finishing croup and perfect tailset. So very clean over neck and shoulders, great depth for that young age! Striking  front and backend angulation, short, strong hocks. And what a great mover she is, she carries herself, covers the ground – very rarely nowadays – and loads drive. She has given me the impression that she knows she is a very, very special  girl. So overwhelmed of her qualities that I think she deserves better words then my ones. She is one of the best bitches I have ever seen! So very pleased to award her the Bitch CC, the first, of many more and Best of Breed. Wish she was mine…. .
