Critique - Judge - Barbara Gladwish

Thank you to the committee for this wonderful judging appointment. I was truly made welcome and was well looked after during the day. The ring stewards were extremely efficient in order for me to undertake my duty.
The entries were of high quality and I thank you for your support and hope that you had an enjoyable day. 
I was looking for racy, balanced and good movement from the exhibits present. I was very pleased with my final winners that they all showed these qualities.

Puppy 8 (4 abs)

1. Chorley-Newton & Chorley - Pawsword Priceless to Kerryfair BPIB, PGP1 and RBPIS

Lovely young puppy who had to work hard for his placing as I was splitting my hairs between him a beautiful bitch in 2nd place. Lovely masculine head with kind eye, dark coated. Flows from his neck to the tip of his tail. Good movement front and rear and carried his topline well with lashing tail action. Good bone, stood proudly on neat feet, straight front and for me he just needs a bit more rear angulation which will come with maturity.
Pleased to see him win the Gundog Puppy Group and then delighted to hear he was RBPIS.
