Show - Saturday 12th August 2017
Specialist Judge - Ms Jackie Smart (Arnhem UK)
I would like to offer my thanks to everybody who was involved in
my invitation to this show, as I had been told at home this would be
a superb weekend of dog showing and that is exactly what it was.
Julana and her hard working team put on a wonderful show with a
truely amazing display of prizes. This really was the experience of
a lifetime, what with the wonderful show and the country that I got
to see a little bit of. I am afraid I am not the best with words and
a mere thank you does not really seem to fit the bill, but please
know that my thanks come from the bottom of my heart. Now to the
dogs ........though I don't consider myself a tooth fairy I do find
the need to mention the mouth problems especially tight canines with
the odd converging canine/s and untidy incisors throw
in.......something I feel needs addressing. I found quite a few
exhibits which I would not consider as show fit and had soft
rearquarters ......on the plus side many exhibits possessed good
bone and a number had really good underjaw and proper chins as
someone I know would say.
