DDTC Open Show

Chelford Village Hall, 26th April 2015. Judge: Mr David Guy (Donzeata).


"Many thanks to the officers and committee for the invitation to judge the club show for which I am most grateful. Many thanks to the exhibitors for the super entry which was very much appreciated. Thanks to my two very efficient stewards Kim Lathaen and Rachel Leeson who ensured the ring ran smoothly. I enjoyed my day very much and it was a pleasure to judge this delightful breed. Most showed such a relaxed and balanced disposition which is a great advert for the breed. It was nice to see the puppy classes well filled which must be good for the future."

Minor Puppy Dog1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman
7½ mths pepper dog, this boy scored on his good spring of rib which is well developed for his age, strong and flexible over the loin. Nice head and eye, front ok, good bone, coat coming in nicely, well set and carried tail. On the move he was ok coming towards but a touch unsettled going away, he gave a good typical picture in profile. Best Dog Puppy.

2nd: Skitt & Stanford's Dainty Dandies King Of My Castle
This mustard boy just 6 mths was also of high quality. He behaved well for one so young, good make and shape with a typical head but just giving away a touch at present as the winner was more developed all through. On the move he was active and alert but a touch untidy coming towards.

Junior Dog1st: Kurg's Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
This 14½ mths impressed me very much and was close up for Best Dog but had to settle for reserve and eventually went on to RBIS. Lovely size, quality masculine head without being coarse, true front, good strong body that was firm and well muscled, super spring of rib. Well boned and strong hindquarters, correct tailset and carriage, he moved well both ways and gave a good picture in profile. His good pencilled coat was presented so well. All in all a quality boy.
