Critique - Bitches: Mrs C Butler (Rubymoon)

Thank you for the lovely entry ,a great privilege and honour to be asked to judge bitches. Thank you MISS committee and also to my 2 stewards on the day.

Many Congratulations to Best in Show, the dog,Crocker and Siddle,SH CH Copper`s War of Roses (imp SWE). I really enjoyed the day ,and was very pleased with all winners .

However I felt some entries were carrying to much weight and lacked muscle tone which does affect movement and outline,some did not move so well behind ,and I felt some heads were rather plain and lacking the lovely expression required ,but I was not stuck for quality in any of the classes .

Minor Puppy.7 entries ,

1st Danks-Kemish ,Alolfrana Red Hot Rumours,6 and ½ month baby ,Pretty head with low set ears and cheeky expression, plenty of depth ,and good angulation front and rear which gave her a lovely outline when stacked ,her coat shone and she moved so well for a baby pup ,really enjoying her day out.

2nd Catling ,Teleri Indian Summer(AI),preferred head of the winner at the moment , she was well made all through ,and also moved well for a youngster,

3rd Taylor,Alchriset A Taste of Honey.

Mugford, Lynwood Abracadabra,9 month,This pup took my eye on 1st walk up line ,Very nice head piece with plenty of work ,and low set ears ,good length of neck which flowed into her well placed shoulders ,plenty of depth and rib ,gently sloping topline   .Her tail was well set ,and rear angulation was good ,which she used well on the move. Lovely pup, found out later daughter of my CC winner.
