  • AND BEST OF BREED

THANK YOU TO ALL ROUNDER JUDGE MRS PAM BLAY

UNFORTUNATELY DODGE HAD TO BE WITHDRAWN FROM THE GROUP BEFORE JUDGING AS HE RECEIVED AN INJURY TO HIS FOOT PRIOR TO JUDGING

critique.... This dog gives me goosebumps, from the moment he walked in the ring until the end of the class he never gave up showing, I think he is stunning. Loved his outline, balance and body proportions, so typey and correct has matured into a wonderful dog, who still has more to give. Love his head and expression, neck and shoulders, strong topline held as he covers the ground effortlessly. Last time I saw him it was at the end of a long day in a hall. Here on the grass in the sunshine he just shone, once I had seen him there was never any doubt that the class and the C.C. would be his and at the end of the day, he took BOB. Just a shame that he had to be withdrawn from the group through injury, after a trolley went over his foot and lamed him, such a pity for I think he is an excellent specimen of the breed.
