Critique - Judges: Dogs Mr Brian Limpus (Karidell)

I would like to thank the officers & committee for the kind invitation to judge this prestigious show. I was disappointed in the lack of muscle in a lot of the exhibits. Our dogs are a happy bunch who like free running, please give them exercise to build muscle and move correctly in the ring, handlers are also running dogs to fast and close to their body around the ring. Dogs move far better and truer on a loose lead and away from handler, allowing the judge to access correct movement. I would like to thank my two stewards for keeping the ring running smoothly. I found two bad bites, presentation on the whole was good. I was pleased with my principle placing.


M.P.D. (8) 1st Holly`s Wynjill WinnerTakes All, well suited name for this young man 6 mth, head developing nicely, ears well set, correct eye shape with raise of brow developing, body of good lines, just right amount of bone, his feet nicely padded and tight, he moved with such style holding his head proudly in the air, his tail is well set on which he used happily on the move, BPD & RBPIS

2nd Savage`s Bradbrook Masterpiece At Fireball, different type to 1, leaner in skull, clean neck with good shoulders, dark eye, ears well set, good depth of brisket with rib, tail well set on, when settled he moved steady going and coming.

3rd Drinkwater`s Bradbrook Whispered.

P.D.(11) 1st Davis` Pawsword Prairie Wind, Liked the head on this young man, developing on the right lines, good bone, straight limbs with neat feet, chest deep, shoulders well set, plenty of width in quarters, he was stronger on his rear movement, allowing him to win this class.

2nd Chorley- Newton & Chorley`s Pawsword Priceless To Kerryfair, have done this young man well before, he has a masculine head developing , lots of same remarks as 1, would like a little more length to loin as I`m sure will come as he matures, moved a little closely behind to-day.

3rd Parson & Gisby`s Sutersett Tom Collins At Bransett.

V.D.(6:1) Lovely class to judge all the dogs were a credit to their owners 1st Edwards` SH CH Gwendariff  Rockin Robin JW what can I say that has not been said before, hold`s his sire`s head, with equal planes and a depth of muzzle which is lacking in a lot of heads, he still has a splendid outline, presented in full bloom and good condition a real credit to the breed  owner/handler & breeder. I understand this was his retirement show. Hope he enjoys his retirement as he has given many judges enjoyment of judging him, pleased to award him R.C.C.

2nd Hogarth`s SH CH Avacet Snowdrift 2nd & 3rd has the same sire who certainly stamped his mark on these two, a lot of remarks are for both dogs, classic heads and expressions, both well constructed and presented to perfection, good in depth and well ribbed, clean in front and with good quarters moved steady around the ring.
