Best in Show Judge: Mr S W Hall
I would like to thank the exhibitors who gave me a good entry to this prestigious show. Thank you also to all the stewards who did a grand job and to the Secretary and Committee of Bath Canine Society for inviting me to judge at their lovely show. There were some lovely dogs who were unlucky to come up against such strong competition; however I am sure on another day they could change places. My only note to the breed generally is to please remember your dog’s teeth and bodies for the future.

Minor Puppy Dog (5 Entries Abs: 0)
I would be happy to take both 1 and 2 home and will watch their futures with interest.
1st: (WIGGINS Mrs J) Rozamie Monsieur Arthur for Scapafield R/s/w, 8 mth baby who was a friendly soul. He had mobile well fringed ears for age which he used well. I would like a little more depth of chest if picky but he had a level topline and he moved and showed well regardless.
2nd: (ROOSENS Miss K) Daydream Believers Oh Beating Like A Jungledrum R/s/w, raw smaller baby, slightly younger than first who caught my eye, pushing hard for first place. Lovely sweet type giving a good picture. Moved ok, keeping level topline. Nice overall picture but not quite the coat due to age but it was of nice quality and presentation.

Puppy Dog (2 Entries Abs: 0)
1st: (OLOF Ms D) Tarnock De Ja Vu 11 mth nice tri male. Lovely head with fine blaze and large featured ears which were well fringed. Medium neck leading to good body with good spring of rib. Level topline and nice tail carriage. Well groomed and shown well.
2nd: (MELVIN Mrs M) Ringlands Sunshine Story R/s/w, another 11 mth youngster. Energetic, well presented baby who played his handler up more than we would have liked. Moved ok at times, just lacked the rear drive and finish of first to complete the picture. Will watch with interest as he settles more.
Junior Dog (10 Entries Abs: 1)
1st: (WELLS, Mrs K J & BROWN Ms A J) Metamorphic Thunder Storm R/s/w, slightly heavier marked young male with very pretty head. He did remind me of one I had years ago. Showed and groomed well. Attentive to handler. Nice body and outline. Moved well. If picky, would like slightly more back angulation but nonetheless a promising boy.
2nd: (SCOVELL Mrs J) Afterglow Tom Fool at Caswell Tri, not long out of puppy. Moved ok. Pretty head and nice type generally. Well presented coat. Would like to have seen a little more butterfly temperament and slightly higher tail set.

1st: (HUMPHREY Mr R & Mrs P) Caraideas the Extra Mile to Gloynbyw Slightly heavier marked tri boy of nice type with good coat texture. Pretty head with fringed ears. Moved well around the ring. Would like to have seen him free stood to finish the butterfly picture.

Limit Dog (8 Entries Abs: 0)
1st: (LETCH, Miss C & BUCKLEY-WATERS Mrs I) Conysluck Mr Pickles Have liked this b/w male from afar. This was my first time putting my hands on him and he is really nicely made mature male with pleasing head, correct ear placement, dark eyes, medium neck leading to level top line and ideal tail carriage. His good body showed in his super movement. Presented and shown well.
2nd: (STANBURY Mrs S) Inixia Saucy Sam R/s/w, much of the attributes of first. But slightly larger. Level topline, ok head with good ears and attractive blaze. Moved ok. Shown well and at one with handler. Sure he could change places on another day with first.

1st: (ROOSENS Miss K) Multi Ch Daydream Believers Lion King CC/BOB. Nice sized tri young male shown and groomed to perfection. Did not disappoint at all. Lovely overall type, attractive head with full blaze, though if picky would like a more relaxed ear set. Good spring of rib and depth of chest, medium neck and well matched tail. Topline kept well. I can see why this dog is a multi Ch. Best of luck with completing his UK title.
2nd: (MUNN Mrs P) Smileline Silenzio Sunshine Garsiv R/s/w, mature male of good size. Presented and shown well. Nice head and fringes for a red, would have liked a slightly darker eye if picky but pigment ok. Good body and moved well. Unlucky to meet number first on the day.
