Critique - Judge: Miss M Webster (Hooley)

My thanks to the friendly committee for their wonderful hospitality and Helen, my hard working, efficient steward, who kept everything running smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. It was a delight to judge the dogs. Movement was sometimes difficult to assess across the breeds, due to the slippery flooring, which caused many exhibits to slide and lose their footing as they attempted to round the corners. Therefore I did make allowances for this.

PUPPY    2

1st Mr J. & Mrs L. Murchison - PAWSWORD PAPERBACK WRITER
7 month old mischievious male puppy, very full of himself. Naughty but nice! Handsome head, lovely dark eye with raised brows. Though still quite raw at this stage, has excellent body properties, compact & well put together. Neat feet.  Moved well but needs to settle. determined to give his handler a hard time. Will watch this young man with interest.

2nd J. Dow - SHENANAGIN STOLEN KISS

JUNIOR 3 (2)

1st J. Dow - SHENANAGIN STOLEN KISS
Striking, elegant 11 month old bitch. Pretty head, dark eye, raised brows & correct ear set. At this stage very balanced. Clean lines throughout, arched neck flowing cleanly into topline. Good layback of shoulder. Presented in super condition. Lovely dark flat coat. Very unsettled when moving. Though slightly better in this class, not co-ordinated with her handler, needs time to settle before coming into the ring.

GRADUATE 3 (1)

1st Mrs M. B. Davie - JONOLA SECRET LOVE AT LOCHFRAE
2 year old elegant, flat coated bitch presented in good condition. Very pretty feminine head, dark eye showing hint of Irish mischief, raised brows & nicely defined occiput. Correct ear set. Arched neck flowed cleanly into good layback of shoulder. Clean lines throughout. Settled on the move, coped well with the flooring, lovely to see her lashing tail.

2nd Mr J. Mrs L. & Miss L. H. Richardson - MONTGREENAN CHARLEY'S ANGEL

Liked this 3 yr old striking bitch. Kind dark eye, lovely head & expressive face. Raised brows & nicely defined occiput. Arched neck flowed cleanly into shoulders. Good spring of rib & body properties. Well angulated but very unsettled on the move, quite skittish, seemed determined to give her handler a hard time.

1st & BOB Mr J. Mrs L. & Miss L. H. Richardson    SH CH BRABROOK FLASH HARRY AT MONTGREENAN
Striking, glamorous 6 year old handsome dog in his prime, presented in immaculate condition. Compact but balanced. Well bodied & muscular with lashings of dark coat. Masculine head, kind dark eye, lovely expressive face, raised brows, showing stop. Good front, depth of chest, depth of brisket & spring of rib. Arched neck flowed cleanly into well laid shoulders and gently sloping topline. Well angulated & sound, kept topline on the move. Good tail action. Moved with enthusiasm, pulling out all the stops when it mattered in the challenge to win BOB. Stood alone in this class but a worthy winner. Have often competed against this dog, it was a pleasure to get up close and personal.
