Papillon Judge: Mrs Cathy Urquhart (Blackpark)
Toy Group Judge: Mrs Zena Thorn-Andrews
Best in Show Judge: Mr Jeff Horswell
I would like to thank Each and Every Exhibitor that entered their Papillon and Phalene under me for exhibition at Cruft’s Dog Show 2017. In each class I only had five prize cards to give out. In some classes, some excellent quality Papillon and Phalene had to go without a card that in otherwise normal circumstances would have well deserved a prize card.
One worry for ‘our Breed’ is that I found a lot more ‘Double Coats’ than I should have done, I counted a lot more Double Coated Dogs than I have fingers on two hands. For those that don’t know what a double coat actually is: a ‘Double Coat’ is where there is two layers of hair, a short undercoat of dense hair and a longer top coat of guard hairs. These two layers blend in with each other ‘and form a double coat’.
Coat wise I was looking for a long fine silky coat, abundantly flowing but without any undercoat. (A Single Coat)
Presentation on the whole was good and in a few cases the best I have seen and touched and I could not have matched some of this presentation myself.

2nd FRASERMAR STORM IN THE SNOW (MR F & MRS E COMRIE-BRYANT & ANDERSON) Tri-Colour Dog. Very unlucky to have met ‘one’ here Today. The deciding factor went down to the lack of presentation on his detention; otherwise it was splitting hairs on these two very lovely Papillon Males of the ‘same Type’. His Coat was presented in clean gleaming condition.
